Parties are fun but at times like Christmas where there are lots of them to cope with, it is worth investing in some products to ensure you feel at your best both before and after the event.
Luscious Lips for under the mistletoe
Reduce the damaging winter effects to your lips by investing in some Lypsyl Lip Balm. Available in a range of flavours – strawberry, cherry, peach and mint and very affordable at just £1.18. These are tiny enough to fit in a purse but really do the job they say they do and nice-tasting too.
Vitaleyes Brightener contains natural plant extracts making your eyes whiter and clearer. Comes in a handy 10ml dropper for £3.52 Vitaleyes Contacts are perfect when there is no mirror nearby and your eyes are feeling sore but you cannot easily take out your contacts. £3.91 from supermarkets and pharmacies.
Invest in some Savlon blister plasters particularly if you are wearing new wedges or heels. They have tea tree oil which helps to soothe and relieve the pain and a special cushioned pad shields and protects blisters from painful rubbing. £3.59 from your pharmacist. In my experience, there is nothing quite as bad as having sore heels. Why suffer when blister plasters add so much protection?
If you are expecting to drink too much
We have recently heard of the Lifeline Hangover Cure which says it absorbs toxins from alcohol thus preventing the agony of a hangover the next morning. If you want to check this out for yourself as we have not yet tested it, trial packs are available for £1.99 from http://lifeline-hangover.com
