Saturday, 4 Feb 2017 : The thing about cold weather is that it requires extra beauty maintenance (dry skin, anyone?) at a time when all you want to do is curl up in bed. Luckily, at-home beauty is having a bit of a moment. Now, by “at-home” we don’t mean house calls from the experts (although it is hard to beat getting a Shellac pedicure without even interrupting a Netflix binge), we’re talking DIY jobs, which combine pro formulas and user-friendly kits to deliver salon results, minus the schlep across town. Here Vogue advises on the most successful at-home treatments.
Precision applicators and vibrant hues have entirely switched up the at-home hair colouring game away from its reputation for delivering brassy blondes and dull brunette shades. You’ll need a bright light and a bunch of butterfly clips to ensure thorough application, and the stop watch on your phone (every minute counts with hair dye). Divide and pin each section to cover the hair completely from root to tip and then massage the formula into the hair for five minutes. As for the formula itself, the high street has something to suit everyone – from targeted root treatments to subtle glosses and bleached pastels. An insider tip?
We all know that facial massage is used backstage at the shows to define models’ cheekbones pre-runway, but the treatment couldn’t be easier to perform on yourself at home. Apply a hydrating serum and start massage around the eyes in a circular motion – 10 circles clockwise, then 10 anti-clockwise. Next, apply pressure to the brow bone by pinching with one finger above and one below the brows. Finish by using your knuckles to run up the jawbone and under the cheekbones to remove tension and increase circulation.
The UK has always been lacking in terms of its teeth-whitening products due to regulations on the main ingredient, hydrogen peroxide. Luckily, new technology has revealed loopholes. Try APA Whitening Duo, which uses carbamide peroxide (a molecule that breaks down into hydrogen peroxide after about 20 minutes of wear) to deliver pearly-white teeth in under a week.
