Happy Christmas Eve! We hope you’re having a great one wherever you are.

During the holidays we can all be guilty of eating/drinking/partying a bit too much. And all the cold weather, socialising and indulgence can take its toll on our hair and skin.

Here are our top hair and beauty tips for the festive season to keep you looking your best all the way into the new year…


Beauty is only skin deep
The first thing that the cold weather, lack of sleep and a few too many glasses of wine can attack is our skin. Make sure to exfoliate your lips and to keep your skin moisturised during the colder months.

 

The Hydra Floral collection from Decléor is one of our go-to products to keep skin moist and hydrated during the day.

Remember that you can always get a free face map at Millimetre Harrow, Notting Hill or Palmers Green to find out more about your skin needs.


Put your best foot forward
Cosy socks and winter boots are perfect for the chilly weather but we sometimes neglect our toenails until we have to pop on our party shoes.

Get a SPA Pedicure at any of our Millimetre Beauty Salons to finish your Christmas party look. Book now at our Harrow, Notting Hill or Palmers Green salons – and you can choose from normal or gel polish too.


Keep those locks glossy
Make sure you keep your hair shiny with a replenishing and nourishing hair mask.T

Apply a hair mask to freshly washed and towel-dried hair twice a week during extreme cold weather. Massage the mask to spread it evenly on the length of your hair all the way to the tips but remember, never on the roots. Rinse and style as desired!

The Pureology Hydrate mask is perfect for providing locks with the right amount of hydration, without weighing it down.


 

All the products mentioned above are available at selected Millimetre salons – contact your local salon now to check availability.

Autumn Skin

It’s time to say goodbye to the blue skies, holidays, cocktail drinking and tan lines. And hello to curling up by the fire, pumpkin spiced lattes, bonfires and Halloween – Autumn is finally here!

And as we’re changing over out summer wardrobes to cosy jumpers and warm coats, we often forget to change up our skincare routine to match the season.

Here at Millimetre, we’ve pulled together the best skin care tips for you, to save you and your skin from the changing seasons…


Exfoliate
Scrub away those dead skin cells with Decléor’s 1000 Grain Body Exfoliator. It helps to combat the effects of dehydrated skin to leave you looking refreshed and revitalised.

Increase your usual exfoliation to twice per week for a month or so until your skin is looking fresh and smooth again!


Moisturise
We know you’ve probably heard it a thousand times but the best thing you can do for your skin is to hydrate and moisturize your skin daily.

The best time to apply your lotion is twice per day after you’ve washed and dried your face. Keep doing this every day for a silky and ageless skin.

Decléor Hydra Floral is one of top favourite picks!


Pucker up
Lips are easy to forget out when it comes to skincare even though they are one of the first thing to show the effects of changing weather – especially in these cold and windy days.

One of the best sellers in our Millimetre Beauty branches is the Decléor Intense Nutrition lip balm. This balm nourishes the feel of lips with moisture, and protects from dryness. Its luxuriant texture melts on the lips; they feel supple and soft, with restored comfort. Enriched with Marjoram essential oil, Shea butter and Macadamia oil, this is one of our must-have fall picks!


From hand to toe
A beautiful manicure or pedicure will help to keep your hands and toes in check until you can dig the flip-flops out of the wardrobe again.

The skin on your hands and feet are susceptible to dryness and cracking as the weather gets colder so make sure to take good care of them!

Book a mani – pedi at your local Mm salon now.


Eat your way to beautiful skin
Last but not least, a good healthy diet will make a big difference in your skin. Natural fats (like those contained in nuts and avocado) and Vitamin C (contained in fruits like oranges and kiwis), will give you a bright and healthy skin that everyone will envy!

Want to know our secret to beautiful skin?  A grapefruit and a handful of almonds per day will keep everyone wondering your real age.
