At Nourish London we know all too well the negative eﬀects that the party season with late nights, rich food and alcohol can have on the skin but we also know that Christmas is a time to party so here are our top tips to achieve a healthy, radiant complexion this festive season.
We recommend starting early with your seasonal skincare regime – you deserve a little extra indulgence ahead of the busy season and will reap the reward of healthy and radiant skin.
A WEEK BEFORE THE PARTIES START…
Try this indulgent face mask and step up your daily routine with a targeted neck cream.
Treat your skin to a Probiotic Face Mask
This is perfect for boosting your radiance pre-party or perhaps to rejuvenate tired, dull post-party skin. Nourish London’s Probiotic Multi-Mineral Repair Mask is an innovative nutrient-rich mask with all the minerals essential for healthy skin repair. This powerful anti-ageing mask features five probiotic minerals that are more readily absorbed by the skin’s natural processes to boost collagen, diminish wrinkles and restore firmness. Magnesium, plays a leading role, helping to calm any inflammation. To rejuvenate your complexion, this skin smoothing treatment also features natural minerals such as:
- Zinc to repair skin-damage
- Copper to increase collagen and cellular repair
- Iron to oxygenate the skin
Take a little time to relax as you enjoy this mask infused with Damask Rose and Lavender.
Show your neck a little TLC
Remember that your beauty regime shouldn’t just stop at your face, make sure you give your neck some special attention as you get ready for the party season. Any concerns about revealing the decolletage will be banished with this neck cream which is proven to improve the neck in just 28 days.*

ON THE DAY
Allow plenty of time to prepare your skin – a little extra time now will pay dividends later. Our recommended regime starts with a gentle exfoliation – so make sure you do this step an hour or two before you apply your make up.
Step 1 – A gentle exfoliation
A deep pre-party cleanse can help to eliminate toxins and minimise the negative impact of a big night out so you will feel the benefit the next day too.
Our Kale Enzymatic Exfoliator works in multiple ways to give you a smoother, healthier complexion. Pomegranate enzymes will gently exfoliate whilst vitamin-rich kale extract helps to increase suppleness and protect against pollution. Healing probiotics oxygenate the skin for a smoother and healthier appearance.
The added bonus with this exfoliator is the Griﬀonia extract has the eﬀect of stimulating serotonin, the 'happy hormone' making it the perfect ingredient to get you in the party mood.
Step 2 – A serious moisture boost
Prep your skin for your party make-up by hydrating with Nourish London’s Radiance Rejuvenating Peptide Serum. Enjoy the uplifting fragrance of Damask Rose as this super-hydrating serum revitalises, brightens and enhances the skin's natural luminosity with light responsive bio-actives, vitamins and minerals. The moisture boost* comes from hyaluronic acid minimising fine lines and wrinkles whilst specialist bioactives boost skin’s luminosity.
*Clinically proven to improve hydration by 25% after 24 hours.
Step 3 – The finishing touch: get #selﬁe ready with Illuminating Face Shimmer
This luxurious Illuminating Face Shimmer gives skin a natural luminosity and contains golden mineral powders to lift and deﬁne the cheek bones. Tripeptides and hyaluronic acid together with Frankincense and Myrrh, ensure a healthy and glowing complexion. You can mix this with your foundation or use as a highlighter over foundation.
AFTER THE PARTY
The essential cleanse
Tempting as it may be to collapse into bed, make sure you remove your make-up before you sleep. Your skin will thank you in the days to come. Skin Renew Cleanser will melt away the toughest of make-up and impurities with this Argan-rich formulation and start to rehydrate your skin with another boost of hyaluronic acid.
Top up your skin’s antioxidant reservoir
Apply a drop or two of our precious Argan Skin Rescue before you go to sleep. This is an excellent antioxidant source and will restore the protective antioxidants in your skin throughout this hectic season. Massage this into the face and neck for a minute as you relax the skin. This super-charged skin saviour will repair stressed skin, enhance collagen production and improve skin suppleness allowing you to wake with a bright and radiant complexion.
