1 NAILBERRY NAILS IT Want a healthier manicure? Nailberry was founded in 2012 by beautician Sonia Hully after she noticed that her customers were experiencing dry and damaged nails. Whether the result of lifestyle, pollution, or from one too many semi-permanent gel manicures, Sonia developed polishes to help combat these concerns, while being vegan, cruelty free and halal. Nailberry’s award-winning L’Oxygéné breathable range is free from phthalates including DBP, formaldehyde, alcohol, parabens, animal derivatives and gluten. Phew! But there’s no shortage of pretty colours. We’re dying to try out Glamazon and Cherry Chérie this winter.

create a mindful bedtime routine

We all know that getting a good night’s sleep makes the world of difference to our mood, but it isn’t something we always prioritise.

And this can leave you feeling tired, lethargic and moody the following morning. It’s not just the quantity of sleep that matters (most adults need between seven and nine hours a night) – the quality of sleep is actually more important. We’ve all had those nights where we toss and turn and feel like we haven’t slept at all. The thing is, good sleep is vital for mental and physical health.

STRETCH 1 Sit on your bed and dim the lights. To warm up your wrist joints, circle both hands outwards five times, and then inwards five times.

MASSAGE 1 Place a few drops of massage oil in your left palm and work it into your hand using stroking movements. Apply a light pressure in a circular motion.
