3 Free ways to instantly reset your skin


With the lack of regular routine over the festive period, it can be quite common for our skin to look a little out of sorts…Unfortunately the mulled wine and mince pies catch up with us eventually! If this is currently the case for you and you're hiding under the covers, don’t worry!

Today, I’m sharing my 3 favourite ways to reset your skin for the New Year, and they won’t cost you a penny.

#1. Reduce puffiness in seconds

This particular tip is amazing if you wake up looking slightly puffy due to dehydration. All you need is one of your Ultra-Soft Face Cloths (a festive, linen serviette will work too!) and a couple of ice cubes.

Simply wrap the ice in your cloth and work the bundle in circular motions across your face to replicate a cryo massage. In less than a minute, it will help to constrict the blood vessels in your skin and the swelling will begin to melt away.

Follow up with your Proactive Age Kit morning routine and you’ll emerge instantly refreshed and rejuvenated, ready to take on the next family gathering!

#2. Instantly revive tired eyes

If your eyes are giving away your late-night secrets, here’s how to brighten them, fast! Start by boiling the kettle and dunking 2 fully caffeinated teabags into a mug of boiling water. Once they’ve been fully submerged, take them out, squeeze away any excess liquid and let them sit until cool.

You’re then going lay back on your sofa or bed and pop a chilled tea bag over each eye, like a little eye mask. Within 10 minutes the caffeine will have given your circulation a much-needed boost, helping the area to look brighter and more luminous.

To take things to a whole new level, apply a drop of the Eye Complex around each eye before popping the tea bags in place…The puffiness, darkness and dehydration lines will begin fading away at record speed.

#3. Heal breakouts with zero effort

If your skin is looking a little dull from lack of sleep, and the overindulgence has brought a couple of blemishes to the surface, this tip is for you.

Start by placing your body in the downward dog position if you feel up to it and hold it for a couple of minutes. If that feels like too much effort right now, simply lay on the bed and let your head hang over the edge. All we’re aiming to do here, is reverse gravity.

Putting your body in reverse mode instantly flushes fresh nutrients and oxygen to your face and increases blood flow. This helps to heal signs of toxicity such as breakouts and delivers an instant face lift, with no effort whatsoever.
