Discover The New You With Our Brand Of The Month: ESPA
Posted by Rachael Funnell in Skin Care
It’s time to shrug off your hangover from NYE and seize the day, 2016 is here and it’s time to shake things up. At My Beauty Matches we don’t believe in resolutions, we think you’re perfect already, but if you’re feeling a little ropey after the season of overindulgence, January is a great time to spice up your skin care routine and discover a new, fresher you. To get over a month of parties, drinking and stumbling through the door at 3am you need something that deals with problems that stretch further than skin deep and we think we’ve discovered the perfect brand to embark on your January transformation with. Discover a healthier mind, body and spirit this January with ESPA, our rejuvenating brand of the month.
ESPA is a beauty brand which understands that the path to health and happiness requires more than just scrubbing away some dry skin. Using only the purest of extracts, the biochemists at ESPA distil active ingredients to create products that keep their promises, with noticeable results for your entire being. Created by Susan Harmsworth, ex-writer for Vogue and life long spa specialist, the brand was imagined when Susan started her own Thelassotherapy resort (salt water therapy) in France. Susan identified that there was still a gap in the market for treatments people really needed in the stressful, modern age and was determined to create products that were fit for purpose. Having been inspired by the holistic therapies she had encountered in Toronto, Susan understood that true therapy needed to treat the mind and body of the individual and so created a brand that combined medicine and beauty. With products that are aimed towards prevention as well as healing, we think ESPA is the perfect brand to get you through this wintery January, by helping you to discover a happier, healthier you. To introduce the guardians of skin, we’ve selected 5 of our favourite, rejuvenating products to kick start your skin care routine in 2016.
If your skin care routine is in need of a post-christmas boost, this Regenerating Moisture Complex from ESPA £58 is a great product to give your skin some intensive TLC. This fast acting, rich moisturiser was formulated to boost collagen production and enhance the skin’s elasticity, resulting in firmer, smoother skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This cream harnesses the power of natural products to give your skin the best care, including antioxidant rich green tea which can reduce the risk of cancer amongst other long term health problems. Furthermore the creators at ESPA have harnessed the natural healing powers of sea amber which boosts collagen and willow bark which stimulates cell renewal to bring you a truly unique moisturiser. We love the thought that has clearly gone into the production of this product, with so many naturally fantastic ingredients carefully selected to give your skin the best possible treatment. Any product which promises to undo the damage caused by those extra few drinks and sleepless nights is a must have for our January transformation.
Hidden beneath our tresses our scalps can easily be forgotten when it comes to our skin care routines, but an unhealthy scalp can result in unhealthy hair. Luckily, being as attentive to our needs as ever, ESPA have formulated this rich Pink Hair and Scalp Mud Treatment £32 to give your scalp the boost it needs. Using mineral rich red clays, this conditioning product stimulates circulation to help boost growth and strengthen your hair. The unique treatment then nourishes your scalp with Vitamin C-rich watercress and apricot kernel oils so your head will be healthy and happy all over. The soothing application of this product makes for a de-stressing skin care routine that will calm your stress levels and we certainly feel we could benefit from a little therapy.
By now we’ve made it through the shortest day of the year, but sadly the summer sun is still a long, long way away. If like me, you’re feeling a little pale and wan, this Radiant Gradual Tan £34 from ESPA could be the answer. This divinely nourishing and smoothing body cream soothes your skin and relaxes your mind, whilst the tanning agents create a beautifully even tan. If you’re someone who often finds themselves short on time, using products which combine two properties, such as tanning and moisturising, is a great way to save time with your skin care routine.

We’re determined not to let ourselves get too stressed this year and we certainly don’t want the worries of last year to show on our faces. A great product to undo the worry lines of 2015 is this Lift & Firm Intensive Facial Serum £52 which has been specially formulated to relieve maturing, stressed or dehydrated skin. Rich in potent, natural and active ingredients, this soothing serum will tone, restructure and recondition tired skin. We think this is the perfect product to give your skin care routine an upgrade as it contains vitamin-rich gotu kola which aids collagen production giving you a fresh, younger look. Who says Benjamin Button has to be the only person who can get younger each year?
Finally, to buff away the worries of yesteryear, every January transformation requires a luxurious exfoliator and this refreshing Exfoliating Body Polish £32 is a great product for revealing the new you. This formula has been expertly designed to gently sweep away dry, rough skin without causing irritation. With cooling spearmint extracts this product is guaranteed to add a hint of luxury into your daily skin care routine. You’ll feel as if you’ve brought the spa to your home with this rejuvenating exfoliator which contains aloe vera, perfect for nourishing, conditioning and revitalising tired skin.
If you’re looking to reveal a new, fresher you this January, a skin care routine makeover can be a great place to start. So what are you waiting for? Discover the new you with ESPA, a skin care brand that will protect, heal and improve your mental and physical health.
