Tahira’s Top Three Recovery Treatments for January:

Happy New Year! January is a wonderful time for rest and renewal, hibernation and taking a bit of care of yourself.  If you have enjoyed the excesses and/or the outdoors in December, now is a good time to indulge in some deeper skin care, sor here are my top three Treatments for January.

1. Restorative Masks: I love the Dr Hauschka Rejuvinating Mask, for its lovely scent gentle feel, I always feel refreshed after this mask.  The Anne Semonin Gel Mask is a bit more of an investment, but feels absolutely fabulous on. Its soothing and refreshing and skin really feels plump afterwards, a little goes a long  way and the packaging ensures longevity of the product. I also really love the Nügg Beauty Revitalising Mask I got in my last Little Known Box, it really tingles and I was not too sure after the first use, but after the second try my skin felt and looked softer and plumper, and the peppermint oil definitely improves circulation. ( my only thing is I find the packaging a bit wasteful for home use but great on the road or as little gifts)

2. Balm Masks: This is the time for some heavy hitters in the moisturising department. I like using the Emma Hardie Moringa Balm really thinly applied all over my face and leaving it on for 15 minutes as a mask before removing. I also like using Weleda Skinfood as a moisture mask. I warm the cream up in my palms, and then press it on my face after cleansing as a night cream. I also get some dry patches on my face and use the Evolve Lip Balm to soothe and hydrate.

3. Oils + Serums Combo: I Love mixing an Oil and serum for a super charged skin boost, especially at night. Try the Evolve Beauty Miracle Oil, and their Hyaluronic Serum has had amazing reviews. My favourite is the Sukin Chia Seed Oil +  Supergreen Serum which work really well together for a plumping, hydrating effect.
