Feeling deflated? These little treats will make a big difference and make you look – and feel – great again.

We all have times when we’re feeling and looking less than our best, whether that’s due to specific events or just down to the general stresses and strains of everyday life.

If life has been getting on top of you and you feel like you’ve lost that spark, try our easy tips to get it back…

Take time out

The bad news is that stress shows on your face. When you’re feeling frazzled, all the tension that you feel on the inside can be visible on the outside. From puffy eyes caused by lack of sleep because you’re up all night fretting, to flare ups due to the release of the stress hormone cortisol, being under strain can really impact your complexion.

It is easier said than done when you’re feeling weighed down by your worries, but taking some time out for yourself really will make a huge difference to how you look as well as how you feel. Even if it’s something as small as taking a bath or reading a book, find 20 minutes in your day to treat yourself and you will soon see the benefit.

Sort your skin

If stress has already taken its toll on your skin, then don’t panic. There’s plenty you can do to get your complexion under control. Clean skin is the foundation of good skin, so kick start your regime with deep facial cleansing using the Olay Regenerist 3-Point Super Cleansing System. It’s four times more effective than manual cleansing alone, and helps your skin to better absorb the active anti-ageing ingredients in your skincare regime, so you will quite literally get your glow back.

For advanced anti-aging power, apply Olay Regenerist 3 Point Treatment Cream to freshly cleansed skin. This wonder product acts directly on the areas where the signs of ageing are most visible, namely eyes, jawline and neck, and will get you back to your radiant best in a jiffy.

Do a detox

Don’t panic! We’re not suggesting cutting out all the fun stuff forever, but a mini five-day detox can kick start your body so that you feel good both inside and out. It’s always worth taking medical advice first, so get the go-ahead from your doctor before starting.

Instead of your usual caffeine kick, start your day with warm water and lemon and aim to up your intake of fruit and vegetables – smoothies are a great way of packing them in. As well as eliminating caffeine during your detox, cut out processed foods and alcohol too, and try to limit your sugar intake to those naturally occurring in fruit.

The mane event

Boredom can often cause us to feel lethargic and less than dynamic. Spring yourself out of that rut with a new haircut. A major restyle can have a huge impact on your overall look, and is a great way of getting your glow back.

If you don’t want to do something so drastic, there’s still no doubting the impact of a good hair day on your mood. Treat your tresses to Aussie Pure Locks, a gentle new range which can work miracles and restore a healthy glow in minutes.

Scent from heaven

An easy way to feel instantly good is through the power of fragrance. Surround yourself with uplifting scents and you will soon boost your mood. As aromatherapy shows, different smells have different affects. For example, lavender will sooth and calm you if you’re stressed, while citrus and mint notes are revitalising.

It doesn’t mean you need to fork out for expensive perfumes either. Simply add Lenor Parfum des Secrets to your wash to experience the enduring power of scent. Each of the four divine fragrances penetrates deep into your laundry so you can carry the seductive scent with you all day.
