Christmas Traditions We Can’t Wait For!

Christmas traditions including glasses of bubbles, Christmas tree and food

Whether you love or loathe it, Christmas is on its way and boy, have we missed it! The thought of wearing pjs all day, eating too much food and wearing a funny hat from a cracker. Yes please!

As we gear up for the festive season, it got us thinking at Superdrug HQ… what do we get up to every year that we only do at Christmas? Here's a round up on our faves and a sneaky peek at a few things you can pick up in our Christmas shop...

Food Glorious Food

Where do we start!? Mince pies, pigs in blankets, roast dinner, turkey sandwiches, bubble and squeak - the list of delicious food is endless! Did you know, in South Africa, they eat deep-fried caterpillars at Christmas? Gross! We’re glad that hasn’t made it to our nearest supermarket!

If you have space after your third helping of turkey and potatoes, then you’ll find a mouth-watering choice of sweets and chocolates at Superdrug to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Bring on the Baubles!

Choosing and decorating the tree is the most festive tradition we love. Do you? From deciding the lights outside to the colour theme for the year. Annoyingly there’s always a bauble that manages to smash within the first 2 seconds of being placed on the tree! Clumsy like us? No worries! Go for one of our chocolate or beauty filled baubles instead!

Superdrug Christmas Advent Calendars and pampering gifts

Festive Stockings

No matter how old we are, we still expect a stocking filled with goodies at the end of our bed or on the fireplace - and hopefully coal free! We’ve been *really* good this year and are hoping (more everything crossed vibes!) for a new perfume to be at the end of our bed!

Secret Santa

This should be the easiest gift to buy but sometimes, it’s the hardest. You either get lucky and pull someone you know out of the hat or that guy from IT who you think is called Dave but actually Chris? Anyway… Superdrug has some cracking Secret Santa gifts at a wide range of prices to help you find the best office-appropriate gift!

Superdrug Halloween gifts sets and mixed fragrances

A Glass of Fizz... or Two!

With Christmas and overindulging in food comes overindulging in booze and the dreaded hangover that lasts from Christmas Eve to New Year’s Day. If just a sniff of sherry is enough to make you feel tipsy or you’re crawling home at 4am on Christmas morning, Superdrug has plenty of pampering products to help you get yourself back to your usual cheerful self before your Nan arrives for lunch!

The Countdown to Christmas Starts Here…

When you were a kid, the countdown to Christmas was made even more exciting with the promise of a mini chocolate hiding behind the doors of your advent calendar. Now, take that delight you felt as a kid and amplify it with a beauty filled advent calendar! Yes, that’s right- it’s almost like opening up a little prezzie to yourself everyday for weeks!

Christmas will come around in all its glittery glory in no time! So, why not start ticking off names off your pressy list right away? Check our our Christmas Store below to discover gifts suitable for all!

Which Glasses Suit My Face Shape?

Three females laying on the grass with different colour glasses on

Have you ever spotted a pair of super-chic glasses on somebody and found they look totally different on you when you pop into a store to try them on? It happens! Just like the clothes you wear or how you cut your hair, certain styles work on some people more than others - and glasses are just the same! So, if you’re in the market for a new pair of specs, it’s important to find a pair that suit your face shape. Not sure where to start? Take a look at our complete guide on finding the right frames for your face.

How Do I Find Out My Face Shape?

If you are not sure what shape your face is, there is a very simple way of finding out and all you need is a mirror and an erasable pen. Pull your hair back from your face and look straight into the mirror. Draw around the outline of your face in your reflection and there before you, will be your face shape!

My Face is Square

My Face Is Rectangular

If your jawline is almost as wide as it is long, then you have a square face shape.

Frames that will suit you:  Oval, cat-eye or rectangular with softened angles.

Frames to avoid: Rectangle frames with flat top or sharp corners.

Does your face appear to be slightly longer than it is wide? If so, you have a rectangular face with gorgeous high cheekbones and a slightly rounded jawline.

Frames to try: Larger frames with a wider lens or Wayfarer style

Frames to avoid: Small and rectangular

My Face is Circular

My Face is Oval

If your face is nice and symmetrical, then you’re part of the circular face club!

Frames to try: Try softer frame which draws attention away from your cheekbones and compliments your softer features.

Frames to avoid: Small round frames that accentuate your circular features

An oval face is considered the ‘ideal’ face shape for carrying off any style of glasses! Lucky you! Your gently curved jawline and well-balanced features are perfect for trying out a range of styles.

Frames to try: Try as many as you like! But we think rectangular or round frames will look great on you.

Frames to avoid: Any that are too small for your face.

My Face is Heart Shape

If your forehead and cheekbones are your most prominent features, then you have a heart shaped face and you will need frames that will balance your features.

Frames to try: Give square or rectangle frames a go

Frames to avoid: Styles that are wider at the top than they are at the bottom.

Virtual Mirror on The Wall... How Do I look?

So, now you know what face shape you have and hopefully, you’ve found a selection of frames at Superdrug Glasses Online you’d like to try, but how do you know if they’ll suit you?

Well, we’ve got that covered too with our Virtual Mirror.

Simply click the link above to upload a selfie, or you can use our pre-loaded model, to see how our frames look on your face. The virtual mirror will detect where your eyes are in the image and place the frames exactly where they need to be.  You can save any photos you like so you can compare them to other frames before making your final decision. How clever is that!?

Why not give it a go and see which frames look great on you?

Retinol Creams & Serums to Add to Your Basket

So, you’ve heard of retinol but you’re a little unsure of what it is and how your skin can benefit from it? Well, we’re here to give you the low-down and to decode that scientific jargon that clutters up the beauty world! Read on to find out if your skin could benefit from the properties of this fabulous ingredient.

What is Retinol?

Retinol is also known as vitamin A - which sounds a lot less scientific, doesn’t it? It’s used in lots of skincare products, like serums and creams, due to its number of skin benefits. Retinol is not just a one trick pony when it comes to looking after your complexion, it is known to:

  • Aid in the production of collagen
  • Diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Exfoliate the skin
  • Speed up skin cell renewal
  • Fight free radicals

A Bit of Extra Info on Retinol...

It’s really important when using products with retinol to follow up with an SPF as it can increase your skin’s sensitivity to light. It is also not recommended to use retinol if you have rosacea, eczema or psoriasis as it can cause further inflammation to your skin. And lastly… retinol can be fairly drying, so if you already have dry or dehydrated skin, follow it up with a skin-quenching moisturiser.

Always check the label of your products for suggestions on how often to apply. Okay... now for the good stuff, the products!

Our Fave Retinol Serums and Creams

1. Optimum Retinol Range

The affordable, high-tech skincare range from Superdrug just became even better than before with the addition of their retinol-based range. Say hello to smoother looking skin without blowing your budget!

B.’s Nourished Advanced Serum reduces the appearance of wrinkles and deep lines in 4 weeks! This serum is full of skin loving and wrinkle busting ingredients that will give you your best skin yet.

3. Olay Pro-Retinol Eye Treatment

Looking for a super skin booster? This could be the one for you. Revolution’s Skin Tone Correcting Serum helps rewind time and encourage your skin’s cell turnover revealing a smoother looking complexion. If you have some acne scarring or dark spots, this amazing serum will help with that too.

How to Care For Your Hair this Winter

Girl walking in a snowy park

As we know in winter, when the temperature changes it can cause havoc on our skin, but did you know it’s also bad for our hair too? And with party season upon us, we need to make sure our hair looks and feels as good as we do!

We lose moisture from our hair, skin and nails so it’s really important to make sure we’re treating these parts with care just like we would our bodies and face.

Don’t panic though as we’ve gathered top tips and products that will make sure your hair is full of life and sparkle this season.

Get a Regular Haircut

It may sound pretty straight forward but it’s really important that you remove your split ends and dead hair. You should be getting your hair trimmed every 6-10 weeks depending on how the ends feel. Getting your hair cut is also a great way of removing the sun damaged bits of hair that have been destroyed while on holiday or by heated tools to prevent further breakage.

Don’t Leave the House with Wet Hair

Now you must have heard the old wife’s tale that if you leave the house with wet hair, you will catch a cold. This, thankfully, isn’t the case; colds are caused by a virus! However, it will take longer for your hair to dry and if it freezes, this can cause split ends! If your hair takes ages to dry, opt to wash it at night if getting up *that* bit earlier isn’t for you. Or a heat protection spray that helps speed up the drying time!

Dry Shampoo Will Be Your Bestie

To avoid drying out your hair and scalp, wash your hair less often and use a dry shampoo instead. This is great for giving your hair a little oomph! If you do feel like you need to wash your hair daily, switch to a cool, warm temperature of water rather than hot.

Pop on A Hair Mask

If you think doing a hair mask is time consuming, you’d be wrong. Whilst you’re watching a movie on a Sunday afternoon, putting a wash on or finishing an essay, just apply a moisturising hair mask and leave it in for 5-10 minutes before washing out. Better yet, leave one in overnight and cover your hair with a shower cap. One containing soy protein and fatty acids will help retain moisture in your hair.

Top up on Vitamins

We actually loose more hair in the winter due to the lack of moisture in the air and having a dry scalp. Taking supplements and making sure you have a healthy, balanced diet will help combat this and the right vitamins will help provide your hair with the nutrients it needs.

Oil Up

Using a hydrating oil will not only lock in moisture to your hair before blow-drying but if used after, help remove any static and flyaways. One containing added vitamins or Argan is best - but it all depends on your hair type so double check the label or with your hairdresser.

Go Sulphate Free

Sulphates are often found in shampoos and can strip our hair of necessary oils, so look for one that are SLS free or sulphate free to prevent this.

Get Whiter Teeth with Oral-B 3D Coconut Toothpaste

Oral-B Whitening toothpaste with coconut

The health and beauty benefits of coconut have been known for basically as long as coconuts have been a thing! The obvious ones are using coconut oil to cook with and to nourish your hair and your skin but did you know that coconut oil is also amazing for your teeth? Well, Oral-B know all about it and are sharing it with you in their 3D Whitening Therapy Coconut toothpaste. Here’s everything you need to know in a (coco) nut shell…

Oral-B Whitening toothpaste with coconut

Coconut Oil for Your Teeth

You may have heard of using coconut oil to naturally whiten and clean teeth using a process called oil pulling. This process involves putting a teaspoon of oil in your mouth and swishing it around for 10-15 minutes. This process, although loved by some, can be pretty bad for your drains, the environment and not to mention it may make you want to gag a little!

Thankfully, Oral-B have developed a toothpaste containing the well-loved oil to help your pearly whites shine without having to swirl it around in your mouth!

Tell Me About Oral-B’s 3D Whitening Therapy

Containing revolutionary stain dissolving micro-granules, the fresh tasting formula can remove up to 100% of surface stains in just three days - giving you a brighter, whiter smile in less than a week!

It also contains soluble sodium fluoride to strengthen enamel and help prevent cavities to keep your teeth strong and healthy.

Coconut oil also contains lauric acid, which attacks harmful bacteria in your mouth which can cause bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease. It’s especially effective at killing the oral bacteria Streptococcus mutans which is the leading cause of tooth decay.

What Does it Taste Like?

If you love your peppermint tasting toothpaste but also want to reap the benefits of coconut oil, then you’re in luck! Oral-B’s 3D Whitening Therapy toothpaste has a peppermint flavour with a touch of sweet coconut vanilla.

Detox Your Social Media with Dr Alex

Iphone on a desk with social media folder open on its screen

Mindless scrolling, swiping and liking has become a natural part of everyday life. On the commute? Check Insta. Waiting for an appointment? Log into Facebook. Friends late for drinks? Scroll through Twitter. The amount of time we are spending on social media, although it may feel like it’s just passing the time, can have an effect on how we feel, how we see ourselves and also how we perceive other people.

On Thursday 10th October it is World Mental Health Day, so to get us all thinking a little more about our wellbeing and how social media can effect it, we invited Dr Alex George (of Love Island fame, but also a doctor IRL) to share his advice on how we can all feel a little better about our online lives with a (well needed) social media detox.

Take it away, Dr…
