Get ready to party with ESPA

With the party season upon us, start your skin, body and hair care preparations and out shine any glitter or sparkle out there with our guide to lighting up your festive social calendar.

Complexion Brightening

Whether its work drinks, a friend’s party or dinner with a loved one, illuminate your complexion the night or two before your event with a little home spa facial.

To do this, fully cleanse your skin in the usual way, however add a second cleanse to really make sure you’ve got rid of any traces of make-up or pollution build-up from your day’s activities.

Great for all skin types, Hydrating Cleansing Milk is ideal for this and can be used with either cotton wool pads or water, and is perfect for your second cleanse too.

For a smooth canvas, exfoliate with Refining Skin Polish before sweeping over freshly cleansed skin using a Spafresh to suit your skin type to remove any remaining cleanser and exfoliator.

Patting Replenishing Face Treatment Oil onto your face, neck and décolleté, apply a layer of Essential Cleansing Mask and relax for 20 minutes somewhere calm and quiet. You could even light a Restorative Candle in a darkened room while your mask gets to work!

Either choosing to sleep in your mask or removing, wash off with tepid water and follow with another sweep of Spafresh to remove any final traces of mask.

Mix 1 – 2 drops of Tri-Active™ Advanced Night Booster with Overnight Hydration Therapy in the palm of your hand and apply to face neck and décolleté.

Retire to bed and wake to fresh, bright, luminous looking skin ready to party the night away!

Body Blitz

Again a night or two before your event, make some time to give your body a little TLC. If you intend on doing this at the same time as your facial, be sure to add this step first so you can drift off to sleep with all our gorgeous Tri-Active ingredients working their magic.

Whether you’re a bath or shower person, apply a generous layer of Pink Hair & Scalp Mud to your hair and exfoliate head to toe with Exfoliating Body Polish while you wait for our exquisite hair mask to take effect.

Buffing away any dull, tired or winter weary skin, wash off to reveal fresher, brighter skin ready to be shown off in Christmas party wear.

Once bathed, apply a layer of Restorative Body Oil before adding Smooth & Firm Body Butter for an extra hit of hydration – combating the drying effects of your central heating and leaving your body smooth, soft and luminous.

Leaving your Pink Hair & Scalp Mud to sleep in or washing off, shampoo and condition in your usual way for beautifully healthy looking, manageable hair – ready to style however you choose.

As a final touch, smelling incredible and adding an irresistible shimmer, before you head out the day of your event, or even better, take along with you. Spritz Optimal Body TriSerum over any exposed limbs for healthy, gorgeously glowing skin.

For your hand or clutch bag, make sure you have Nourishing Lip Treatment and Pink Pomelo Lip Balm to hand and keep lips glossy and deeply hydrated too.
