Banish Your Winter Beauty Blues

Posted   |  By Jenni Savin

As we are all well aware winter is fast approaching and things outside are getting ch-ch-ch-chilly (and wet and windy...) which means all kinds of seasonal beauty challenges are about to rear their ugly head, alongside some industrial force weather.

This combined with the upcoming festive season presents a few problems: how are you meant to get hair as shiny as Kim K’s peachy behind, keep your skin baby soft and maintain on point make-up on when you have to spend all your spare cash on Christmas presents, for relatives who can barely remember your name?

Well ladies, don’t fear! In true Christmas miracle style the Jones and Jones team have got you covered, Jennifer Savin has sourced the best DIY tips around that are sure to cure those top three winter beauty blues. You can thank us later over a glass of mulled wine, ho ho ho!

As the great Reese Witherspoon said a decade ago in Legally Blonde “The rules of hair care are simple and finite!” Be nice to those dried out ends by doing a deep conditioning treatment once a week, wear a hat to protect your locks from the outdoor elements and never leave the house with wet hair – not only will you get ill but the cold air will cause brittleness and damage.

Here’s a quick and easy conditioning treatment you can whip up during the next ad break of I’m a Celeb, all of the following ingredients are a treat for dry hair so don’t stress if you’re missing something from the list:

Ingredients:

½ a cup of coconut oil

½ a banana

 2 tablespoons of honey

 ½ an avocado

 ½ a cup of olive oil

Method: Place all the ingredients in a blender (or mix by hand until chunk free). Slather onto your hair for 25-30 minutes. Heat is great for encouraging the hair shafts to absorb nutrients so add a plastic bag or shower cap and cover with a warm towel. Rinse clean and dazzle.

 

Oh baby it’s cold outside! Damn right it is and that means a huge risk of dry skin. Not only can this beauty woe be unsightly it can also cause a lot of discomfort and itchiness, so it’s key to keep your skin happy with lots of hydrating ingredients such as oatmeal, shea butter, avocado oil and vitamin E. One way to get a quick fix of this is to make a homemade face pack, using ingredients that can be found in your fridge:

 Ingredients:

1 avocado

2 tablespoons of honey

1 teaspoon of single cream

Method: Mash the ripe avocado with both tablespoons of honey and teaspoon of single cream. Apply on face for 10 – 15 minutes and rinse off with warm water, pat dry and pop on any moisturiser you may already use as part of your beauty routine. 

 

The curse of dry lips mean lipstick never stays looking fly in winter. To avoid this simply take a spare, dry toothbrush and gently buff away the chapped skin, then apply some lip balm. Alternatively you could pop a clean towel under some warm water and use it to exfoliate your poor pout back to perfection, again adding a slick of balm or Vaseline afterwards. Now where’s the mistletoe at?
