Winter is racing around the corner, but before those inevitable winter blues take hold, spend some time refreshing your look! With some special treatments, a few stylish accessories, and a spot of relaxation, you’ll be ready to take on all the weather these cold months can throw at you. It’s easy to stay feeling positive when the sun is shining, but when the rain clouds keep gathering, and the temperatures drop, a little extra is required to lift the mood. A never-ending cycle of school runs, cheering on your kids from the chilly sidelines, grabbing a bite to eat when you can, and struggling to get a good night’s sleep can take their toll on the healthiest of souls.
- Get a Haircut and a New Colour
A change is as good as a rest, they say, so why not take this advice and change your hairstyle? A visit to the hairdresser can do wonders at picking you up and making you feel like a new person. Pick the right hairstylist, and they’ll uncover an entirely new you. If you’re brave enough to try a radical new look, they’ll be able to provide advice on how to revamp your style. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to try a new colour, or brave the chop and go shorter with your locks. Whichever you fancy trying, your stylist will be able to point you in the right direction, along with advice on how to recreate the look at home!
- De-stress with a Massage
Modern living can be very stressful, whatever your lifestyle choices. How many times do you actually relax and take time out from your routine? We’re not talking about lazing around and checking your Facebook posts. To benefit from being totally relaxed, you need to ditch the electronic devices, at least for a couple of hours. Book an appointment with a local masseuse and let them work their magic. You’ll enjoy it so much; you’ll be making another appointment for a few weeks time!
- Accessorise Effectively
If you don’t want to spend time hitting the shops hunting for a new wardrobe and you like the outfits you’ve already got, accessorising can be very effective at breathing new life into an old wardrobe. A few essential accessories, such as comfortable red shoes, a bold bag, warm-toned jewellery and a stylish pair of glasses can transform the dullest of outfits.
A final word of advice: For those of you who manage to make it through the winter, banish those dead skin cells of winter with a revitalising facial. Winter weather is not kind to your skin, and by the end of March, your skin will feel tired and dried out. Spend a couple of hours at your local beauty salon, and you’ll walk out of there feeling like a new woman. You never know, your fresh new look might prompt you to keep to those New Year resolutions a little longer. After all, we all know about the benefits of regular exercise and a healthy diet. The trouble is that it can sometimes be a struggle to keep to a new regime.
