New Year, new me!

Wednesday, 2nd January, 2019 5:00pm

The 'New Year, New Me' happens every year but I am not making a resolution this year to spend more time doing anything because time is of the essence.

So, this year I am taking my ten years in the beauty industry and using every time saving hack I have ever learned. That is to be my resolution.

I am going to make this year the year of the express, get out the door and get to work, the school run or the bar in double quick time.

Dry shampoo used to be confined to just a talc like substance sprayed in your roots in the hope of resurrection of the clung to your scalp hopelessness we all endure at times. Sometimes I feel, especially on a Monday, that my life is 50 per cent coffee and 50 per cent dry shampoo. Well I am happy to report that times have most definitely changed, and Batiste are the heroes of our hair. It has launched four new dry shampoos that are specific to your hair.

Dry Shampoo + Volume - get an instant refresh and to transform flat, lifeless locks into revitalised, bouncy hair in seconds.

Dry Shampoo + Hydrate - inject some moisture into your mane, whilst giving it a refresh - great for curly hair!

Dry Shampoo + Damage Control - if your hair is over-processed and damaged due to heat then this is great. The formula will help transform weak and damaged hair to healthy looking locks.

Dry Shampoo + De-Frizz - this lightweight dry shampoo will refresh and smooth your hair. Get touchable soft locks and an instant hair refresh in no time. What more could you want?

Next up is the second resolution and that is to include an Irish brand or product each week to spotlight. Our lovely island is home to some of the most phenomenal skin and makeup brands ever.

Bia Beauty is a Cork brand and here are my two Irish heroes:

Orange and Grapefruit Exfoliant and Cleanser (€16.95) is the perfect choice to naturally brighten your complexion. This cleanser is packed full of natural superfood ingredients which help to revitalise your skin. The formula contains jojoba grains which remove dead skin cells and brighten the appearance of your skin.

Thistle and castor oil are excellent at eliminating impurities. Essential oils of orange and grapefruit help to cleanse and purify your skin while adding a subtle fruity fragrance.

It eliminates the need for an exfoliant and a cleanser as this product looks after both functions, leaving your skin feeling thoroughly cleansed as well as incredibly soft and smooth.

Mellow Mandarin Moisturiser (€18.95) is a handmade, luxurious natural facial moisturiser. It is suitable for all skin types and it is even gentle enough for sensitive skin, yet it still provides essential hydration for dry skin. The key ingredient in this product is mandarin essential oil which balances the natural oils of the skin. This makes the moisturiser beneficial for oily and combination skin as the combination of superfood ingredients ensure intense hydration and moisturisation.

The superfoods provide your skin with the essential nutrients to achieving a healthier appearance. A gentle mandarin scent lingers on the skin after use and further adds to the revitalising, refreshing effect of this.
