Holiday Beauty and Grooming Essentials

Have you ever focused so much on getting your home ready for the holidays that you totally spaced out on getting ready yourself? I’ve had that happen where I spent the whole day cleaning  my home for guests and forgot about getting myself prepped! Eek! The car pulls in the driveway and I realize that I’m still in sweatpants and John’s t-shirt and no bra. I run to my room and quickly get dressed, swipe on some deodorant and brush my hair. It can be done, but it’s not exactly the look I was going for. This year I’m going to make sure I leave myself enough time for ME! No more rushing around like a crazy woman.

I have some products on hand to help keep me looking and feeling fresh and ready to entertain. For hair, try the Herbal Essences The Sleeker the Butter line up of products for the sleek and chic look. Herbal Essences The Sleeker the Butter Shampoo smooths hair and controls frizz and the Herbal Essences The Sleeker the Butter Conditioner complements it by coating strands to tame your locks. Herbal Essences The Sleeker the Butter Smooth & Creamy Hair Milk can be applied after you wash your hair to keep the smooth and conditioned look throughout the day and night.

I straighten my hair for special occasions and used Pantene Pro-V Heat Potion Serum to help shield hair from damage. It adds a protective layer to your hair and protects from damage up to 450 degrees.

December is one of, if not the most, hectic months of the years with lots of rushing around and late nights. To keep your eyes looking bright, use Olay Regenerist Luminous Dark Circle Correcting Hydraswirl to fade away those dark under eye circles. It works to instantly brighten eyes and make you look like you had a good night’s rest.

Let’s not forget the guys! They also will wanting to be looking their best. The Old Spice Swagger line will keep him smelling fresh – so important! No one wants to smell B/O. Start with the Old Spice Swagger Body Wash and the Old Spice Antiperspirant. He can spray on the Old Spice Re-fresh Body Spray for a quick scent touch-up if he is partying too hard and needs a boost of freshness.

John doesn’t spend too much time on his hair because he always has a ball cap on. I’ve given my dad the Head & Shoulders Advanced Thickening Tonic to try on what is left of his hair. Sorry dad! He can use the Old Spice Spiffy Wax to make sure hairs stays put all night long.

If your guy likes the clean shaven look, get him to try the Gillette Fusion ProGlide with FlexBall Technology Power. It’s designed for maximum contact around the contours of the face to make sure no strays are left behind.

What do you do to keep looking (and feeling) your best over the holidays?
