How To Pamper Like A Pro
Relax, the main event is over — now it’s time to indulge yourself in that lazy time before the new year. We ask the experts for the best in betwixtmas beauty, from bouji bath bombs to the latest tech.
Wake up tired eyes
The Peep Club Heated Eye Wand (£60; victoriahealth.com) was launched this year and has quickly become a cult eye tool. With three settings — heat, massage and red LED — you can choose whether to treat dry eyes (heat unblocks tiny glands to reduce redness and itchiness), massage puffy peepers or rejuvenate a tired face with the red-light function.
Hit a migraine on the head
A face-to-face appointment with A-list acupuncturist Ross J Barr will set you back £100, but his pain-relieving Calm Patches (£15 for ten; victoriahealth.com), formulated with ingredients used in traditional Chinese medicine, are a snip. Applied directly to the area of pain, they not only help to ease headaches and migraines but also work wonders for soothing frustration.
The power-nap enabler
Spacemasks’ self-heating lavender-scented eye masks (£15 for five; victoriahealth.com) are relaxation at its deepest — best used as the perfect antidote to stress-filled days. Pop on and lie back for 15 minutes.
