Fashion month is upon us, and we couldn’t be more excited to drool all over next season’s fashion and beauty looks as they make themselves down the runway. And whether you’re going to be sitting on the frow, spectating from the sidelines or just want to make like a runway model with flawless skin and hair, follow our tips for getting ready for the most important week in the fashion calendar.
Polish Your Pins
Each model that struts their way down the catwalk is bound to be sporting gloriously smooth, silky pins. Follow suit with naturally airbrushed-looking legs by buffing away dead skin with an exfoliating body scrub. The NUXE Reve de Miel Body Scrub uses sugar crystals to smooth the skin’s surface whilst using honey and precious oils to leave it soft and nourished. Follow this by using our best-selling dry oil, Huile Prodigieuse to moisturise the skin and give it a runway-worthy satin finish. Its iconic formula is enriched with 7 precious botanical oils to repair and beautify, whilst sinking into the skin effortlessly. With fashion designers each showcasing their spring collection this September, get into the spirit with a touch of Huile Prodigieuse Florale. It has the same inimitable formula as our original dry oil formula with an updated fragrance to give your skin delicate, spring floral scent.
Get Luscious Locks
Catwalks call for gorgeous, gleaming locks so add nourishment to the hair during fashion week to keep your hair soft and shiny. Containing super softening macadamia and argan oil, Huile Prodigieuse Dry Oil can also be used to repair dry and damaged hair and add radiance. Use as a nourishing mask to improve suppleness by apply to hair 10 minutes before shampooing. Alternatively, add instant shine by warming a few drops between the hands and teasing through either dry or damp ends to leave the hair glossy and smelling incredible. For a final finishing touch, spritz a small amount of dry oil to your hair brush before combing through.
Solve Skin Concerns
A flawless complexion is a prerequisite at fashion week, especially for those being papped and paraded on the runway. If you’ve got any specific skin concerns such as dry patches, blemishes or dullness - start treating these a few days before to ensure your skin is clear and radiant for the cameras. Our new range of Insta-Masque tackle specific concerns in just 2 minutes making them perfect for last-minute FW prep. If you’ve had breakouts of blackheads or blemishes, try the Purifying Clay Mask to unclog, mattify and clear the complexion. For skin that’s dull and uneven, use the Exfoliating Mask which will help your makeup sit better and last for longer. With tiny exfoliating particles, it buffs away dead skin cells whilst leaving the complexion smooth and luminous. For skin that’s in need of a mid-fashion week detox, try our Charcoal Mask which uses activated charcoal to capture and remove impurities.
Protect against Pollution
If you’re darting between shows in the city mayhem you’ll especially need to protect your skin from external aggressors. The harmful effects of both pollution and city stress are no joke so take advantage of our Creme Prodigieuse Boost Range which contains an antioxidant Jasmine Flower Complex to preserve the skin’s health and boost its radiance. Use the Creme Prodigieuse Boost Gel Cream to protect and enhance oily-to-combination skin, and the Silky Cream for drier skin types. Help the skin to recover after each day by using the Creme Prodigieuse Night Recovery Oil Balm before bed. Its beautiful cocooning texture effortlessly melts into the skin and allows you to wake up with a rested, complexion so you’re primed and ready for your next day of fashion shows.
Do-Away with Dark Circles
Darting from show to show to party is exhausting stuff, so don’t let your skin fall prey to fatigue. Dark circles are one of the most telltale signs of exhaustion so use an eye cream such as the Creme Prodigieuse Boost Eye Balm Gel to keep eye bags at bay. Formulated with botanical caffeine and an antioxidant complex this eye contour gel minimises puffiness and circles to keep the eyes looking bright whilst also protecting the area from external aggressors. With a delicate and refreshing texture, it’s the perfect formula to apply both morning and night to rejuvenate and renew the eye area.
