Beauty Essentials In Time For The Bank Holiday Weekend

Raise your hand if you are ready for a long weekend? We definitely are. However, just because we’ve got a few days off work, doesn’t mean we should take time away from our all-important skincare. As well as partying the weekend away, we should also make the most of our bank holiday weekend by indulging in some much-needed self-care.

Pre-Bank Holiday Skincare

The bank holiday is all about relaxing and having a great time with loved ones - let’s face it, having a few days off work calls for a celebration. Not to mention, with the Coronation around the corner, we need to have skin fit for royalty. So, what skincare prep needs to be done before the bank holiday? 

Well, first things first, it’s meant to be warm and that means that SPF becomes all the more important. We are sure you are getting bored of seeing the rhetoric that sun protection should be worn daily, but it’s true! Even if the sun isn’t in the sky, the harmful rays are - also, not to mention all those other nasty environmental aggressors. You must protect your skin, particularly if you are looking to spend a lot of time outdoors this bank holiday weekend.

One of our absolute favourite SPFs is the Dr. Dennis Gross All Physical Dark Spot Defense Sunscreen. Formulated to protect your skin from the sun, this lovely lotion also reduces the appearance of dark spots, uneven skin tone and wrinkles. Dr. Dennis Gross Dark Spot Defense Sunscreen SPF 50 not only protects your skin from UV rays but reverses the signs of previous sun damage! Our Skincare Experts recommend applying sunscreen daily, repeating application every 2 hours to give your skin the protection it needs.

Next up, let’s talk about hydration. Being in the sun can dry your skin out which can have long-term effects. Speaking of the Coronation and the royal family, Kate Middleton swears by moisturisation - well, just look at her skin! No matter the stress or the occasion, the Princess of Wales always has flawless and hydrated skin. So, let’s take a leaf out of her book this bank holiday weekend and up our moisturiser game.

To go alongside the sunscreen, Dr. Dennis also has a lovely, long-lasting moisturiser: the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Daily Moisturiser. With its impressive 7 Alpha Beta® acids and replenishing activities, the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Daily Moisturiser aids cell turnover for a smooth and radiant complexion. Use this product to help renew your skin through exfoliation and replenish it with intense hydration. Your skin will feel hydrated, and the texture will feel refined. You may also notice that the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is improved over time. This high-performance moisturiser delivers 72 hours of hydration, so you can keep partying throughout the entire long weekend.

The Ultimate Post-Bank Holiday Skincare Routine

After the partying is done, your skin may need a little TLC - and that’s where some of our favourite post-celebration skincare products come in! The Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask from 111SKIN is a must-have. These brightening facial masks are formulated using 24k gold and damask rose to deeply soothe and hydrate the skin - talk about treating yourself like royalty this weekend! The 24k gold extract brightens the skin, creating a more even tone and improving circulation. Alongside this, these radiance-boosting treatments include Argireline, a hexapeptide which relaxes the muscles, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These masks are everything both you and your skin need after a long weekend of celebrating. 

You can even take your pamper session to the next level with the MZ Skin Germanium Roller. This facial massage device helps to boost circulation which, in turn, stimulates and energises your skin giving it that much-desired glow. To use this wondrous tool, gently roller your face in an upwards direction - that’s it, simple as that! We recommend staying clear of the more sensitive areas and avoiding rolling the neck, throat or broken skin.
