The holiday season can become a particularly indulgent season in all areas of our usual lives. From that extra mince pie to morning lie-ins, our habitual schedules tend to be replaced with treats that are not usually given the time or space within our boundaries of self-discipline. Although other daily routines of mine start to slip by mid-December, one that is never given a day off is my skincare routine. I used to see my morning and evening skincare as an annoyingly strenuous task. However, in the past year, it has become a much-loved part of my day, refreshing me for the day ahead and signalling the end of long days. That’s why I’m always on the hunt for new skincare products to trial and test, so here are some of the beauty items that will be at the top of my Christmas wish list. P.S. I threw in some makeup, hair, and fragrance picks because Christmas and New Year are nothing without a glittery eye, big hair, and a newly harvested scent.
