How To Prep Yourself For Christmas – Guys Edition
Whether you are rolling solo or have that special someone, it’s always good to give yourself a proper pampering and indulge yourself once in a while. So what better excuse than Christmas? Here’s my recommendation for your quick fix to look good and dapper this festive season:
I am sure most of you will be toasting (and getting toasted) a lot in the coming weeks, but when you drink alcohol over a period of time, it does take a toll. Don’t overwork your liver. Start cleansing by drinking a mix of kale, cucumber and lemon juice. Prepare the juice by running all the ingredients through a juicer. It will release some of the toxins that have been stored in your liver in the first place and avoid further accumulation. If you have no time to prep it yourself, you can also go get one on the go or delivered from Bless, a new and coming local juicing shop, my personal favorite. Ask for Cleanse No.003 which is a cold pressed juice freshly made in Hong Kong.
Face & Hair:
A dear friend of mine swears by this hip and local salon for his looking sharp, smart and silky smooth. Head over to Fox and The Barber and ask for your perfect cut and shave. He also recommends their Indian Style head massage to rejuvenate after a long day at the office. I went and chatted with their lovely owner Sarah while I waited and I can see why this place is so popular. Their super-duper friendly and professional staff will definitely make sure you are well looked after.
Most men don’t want to spend as much time on their beauty rituals as us beauty queens. But I managed to change one fella’s mind after taking him for a luxurious treat at Iyara Spa. Check out the grand Gentlemen’s Corner. They now offer a list of services catered to men. What he had: a Swedish massage session for deep relaxation, an express manicure as well as an express facial tailored to his skin type. He walked out feeling relaxed and rejuvenated in just over 1 hour. Lavender and coconut oil is used in all massages and all products used in the spa are 100% natural.
If you are going to a Christmas party that requires you to wear a traditional Christmas jumper, you don’t have to go all Macklemore down the thrift store. Opt for a blue toned, funky looking, shawl collared cardigan or a cool funky cardigan with a pop of blue instead. Nothing beats a man in a grey warm, funky cardigan in my opinion.
Leave the reindeer prints to Colin Firth – you won’t be embarrassed to wear these winter warmers again after your party. 7 day delivery is also available when you purchase over $800 and enter code HK7DAYSHIP
