HOW TO TREAT YOURSELF BEFORE CHRISTMAS

It may be the season for giving, but that doesn’t mean you can’t dedicate some time to pampering yourself…

Olaplex is the miracle product we never thought was possible. The revolutionary formula repairs bonds in the hair- that are broken during the colouring process- and seals every last strand. This means you can now colour your hair without any damage. Book in for a treatment at RAW Anthony Nader, where you can opt to have it applied during your appointment or take home a bottle to use between touch ups. RAW Anthony Nader, Surry Hills, (02) 9211 4444.

Kick off your party prep with a fractional laser treatment to keep your skin glowing throughout the festive season. The non-invasive micro laser takes 30 minutes and stimulates skin cell renewal, targeting a multitude of areas- namely large pores, acne scars, sun damage and poor skin texture. We love Karpati Medispa in Double Bay (clients include Sarah Murdoch, Naomi Watts and Erica Packer). Karpati Medispa, Double Bay, (02) 9363 2395.

Nothing screams Christmas like festive nail art. The Nail Lab is offering a Bespoke Nail Art service for the silly season, including a signature or luxe manicure treatment along with a 30 minute consultation (design and application). Think: a smattering of gold glitter over nude polish or a geometric pattern. The Nail Lab, Darlinghurst, (02) 9380 8008.

St Tropez has developed a solution for our last-minute pale skin woes with their Rapid Tan in-salon treatment (developing in as early as one hour). You are in control of your colour- so you never have to frantically scrub off excess tan again. For a light glow, shower within one hour, for a medium shade, shower within two hours and for a warm tan, shower within three hours. Lulu Belle, Rose Bay, (02) 9328 5533.

The chic inner city Muse Clinic recently added Skin Blading to their treatment menu and it’s not nearly as scary as it sounds. The skin is pulled tight while a blade angled at 45 degrees swiftly removes the top (dead) layer of skin – taking fine hair growth with it. Think of it as a deep, manual exfoliation- leaving your skin positively radiant in photos. Muse Clinic, Darlinghurst, (02) 8283 8885.
