The Lush List - December 2019
This month’s 10 tried, tested and trusted - places, beauty, fashion and lifestyle products that I’m loving at the moment...
The bed of nails has been used by Indian mystics for centuries in the practice of healing and meditation and now it's been re-invented with a Skandi twist to give you a whole range of benefits, from tackling insomnia and easing stress, to helping you re-balance after a long haul flight, alleviating arthritic aches and reducing the appearance of cellulite (the spikes help the body rid itself of toxins and increase blood flow, to assist the breakdown of stubborn fat groupings). It's also brilliant for relieving chronic neck and back pain, and can even have a positive impact on your complexion!
The bed of nails has been used by Indian mystics for centuries in the practice of healing and meditation and now it's been re-invented with a Skandi twist to give you a whole range of benefits, from curing insomnia and banishing arthritic aches, to helping alleviate headaches, combat fatigue and restore your skin's luminosity (the spikes help the body rid itself of toxins and increase blood flow, which gives you a healthy, lit-from-within glow).
A practising dermatologist and valued member of innumerable skin care societies and foundations, Dr. Dennis Gross is a pioneer of new and innovative ways to combat the primary signs of skin ageing. His top-selling Alpha Beta range was one of the first to harness the resurfacing and rejuvenating properties of five Hydroxy Acids to gently dissolve the bonds that bind dulling dead cells to skin's surface without harsh abrasives, physical exfoliants or any unsightly side-effects. The youth-boosting benefits are miraculous – however, he’s gone one better with the release of his Clinical Grade Resurfacing Liquid Peel. A pharmacy-grade, pro-level mix of acids for the ultimate complexion overhaul, this two-step routine results in the ultimate pore refinement, reduces wrinkles and increases radiance for a post-facial glow from the comfort of your own home.
Definitive proof that the best things do (sometimes) come in smaller packages, Huda Beauty’s Precious Stones Obsessions Palettes are here – and they’re absolutely exquisite! A dream come true for those Huda-holics who can’t squeeze their palettes into overstretched make up bags (or those yet to sample her game-changing shadows) this Ruby Obsessions Palette unites a spectrum of nine pigment-packed powders with duo-chrome and creamy matte textures in rich raspberry, blackcurrant and copper shades for the ultimate feminine lid looks.
