Ah, ‘tis the season to by jolly. But if, like me you have a nasty habit of being a little too jolly once the port is opened I thought I’d offer a few festive-themed remedies as my parting post for 2010…

Skin looking as exhausted as you feel? Then try… Elemis S.O.S Survival Cream. One of my favourite skin saviours, this specially formulated moisturiser is brilliant for revitalizing tired, dull skin and also contains festive Myrrh for its healing properties.

In need of an antioxidant boost? The try… Perricone MD Super Berry Powder with Acai – 30 day supplement.

Cranberries might taste fantastic with your Christmas turkey but they also happen to have anti-inflammatory properties and are good for your skin too. This daily supplement is packed with antioxidant berries (as well as the festive favourite it also has blueberries, raspberries and blackberries) and is the perfect  tonic for boosting skin and giving your body a sense of well-being after all the over-indulgence associated with this time of your.

Fancy a nighttime recovery solution? Then slap on…Ren Frankincense Revitalizing Night Cream. I mean, really, what could be more appropriate at this time of year than this award-winning night cream, infused with Frankincense to improve the appearance of wrinkles and help repair the skin while you kip/pass out.

So there you have my three festive-themed skin savers. Hope they help to keep you looking vaguely normal!

Wishing you all a fantastic Christmas and Holiday season.
