Metro Herald Column: New Year Hair and Skin Savers

Products to help hair and skin recover after Christmas

I had a few requests to share the content of my column here for those of you who missed them or live outside of Dublin and can't get their hands on a copy. Here's the latest piece which ran yesterday morning - sad I know, but I am still getting such a kick out of seeing my name in print!

Feeling a little frazzled after the festive season? Treat yourself to some TLC with this round-up of the best products to soothe and balance stressed out hair and skin.

ONE: If your skin is parched after the excesses of the season, try Clinique’s new Moisture Surge Overnight Mask. Skin nourishers like hyaluronic acid – aimed at locking in moisture - work through the night for a softer, plumped up complexion come morning. €38, Clinique counters nationwide

TWO: Party hair can mean lots of sticky styling products. Banish build up with Ojon Full Detox Shampoo - this gently removes product, detangles and restores shine to the most lacklustre locks.  €24, Arnotts

THREE: To keep breakouts at bay, make Origins Clear Improvement Mask a bathroom cabinet essential. With active charcoal and white clay, this clears clogged pores and dissolves dirt, oil and make-up. €27.50, Boots Liffey Valley/Arnotts

FOUR: For some all-natural deep cleansing action, try Rose Cleansing Mud from Irish skincare brand, Pixy. This antioxidant-rich blend of beauty clays targets impurities and revitalises the skin. €9.50, pixy.ie

FIVE: A great little multi-tasker, No Clogs Allowed from Soap and Glory is a self-heating deep pore treatment that can be used as a scrub or a mask. Remove with the accompanying sponge to reveal baby soft skin!  €15.24. Boots

SIX The fabulous fresh face masks from Lush are packed with skin boosting ingredients. My favourite, Brazened Honey, is great for tired skin – it detoxes, exfoliates and brightens the complexion. From €6.90 for 75g, Lush

If you've tried any of these products, I would love to know how you got on!

I don't think seeing it in print and being able to hold it in your hands will ever get old Emma! Bravo!

I want to try the detox shampoo and the mask from Lush. I love Lush masks too but don't think I've ever tried this one.

I replied to your comment there bit in case you don't see it I got the nail polish on ebay but I ordered the lipsticks on their site I think there's some new law about internationally shipping nail polish so I'm going to look into it now!
