Your guide to getting race day ready – Melbourne Cup style!

The countdown has begun to one of the most anticipated events of spring… the races! This marks the start of party season with the weather warming up, big Cup Day events and of course after-parties. Just like any big event – it requires the correct preparation and beauty routine at least a week prior to ensure the morning getting ready with the girls runs smoothly.

Looking your very best at the races needs more thought than simply choosing a winning dress and matching fascinator. Read on for our guide to getting race-day ready, guaranteed to make you feel glamourous for any occasion!

Pearly White Smile
A big bright pearly smile can give you instant confidence. It’s no wonder they say a smile is the best accessory a girl can have! Unfortunately, it doesn’t happen overnight. For visibly whiter teeth before the big day try using Rapid White Daily Whitening Toothpaste at least one week in advance. The extra clean sensation and high impact stain removal will have you smiling with confidence.

Gentle Exfoliate
Exfoliating should always be top priority beauties! This is because when you exfoliate you remove the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin to uncover fresh new cells below. Say hello to beautiful, radiant skin with EcoTools Dual Cleansing Pad. Designed with a natural loofah and recycled netting, gently exfoliate dry skin until smooth with a pump of your favourite body wash. Make sure you exfoliate on a regular basis to get the best results come race day. A flawless complexion takes dedication after all!

Let’s not forget about your feet, nobody likes sore cracked heels… especially when wearing heels from day to night. Feeling confident to strut your stuff is now so much easier! Pamper your feet using Bathefex Softsole Express Exfoliating Foot Peel. This at-home exfoliating treatment softens calluses and cracked heels removing hardened skin from your feet. Trust us, your feet will be feeling softer than ever!

Nourish Your Skin
As we approach hotter sunny days it means we need to replenish and hydrate our skin. This means moisturising the body every day to make sure it’s the healthiest it can be. Let’s be real, we need our skin to be shining bright like a diamond! The Healing Garden Body Lotion – White Lavender is perfect for rebuilding dry lacklustre skin. Not only will it condition the skin it will relax your mind with the soft, soothing scent of white lavender.

Lastly, good quality body wash will nourish and properly clean the skin to reveal a glowing complexion. Dr Teals Body Wash – Sooth & Sleep with Lavender is ideal for everyday and is enriched with aloe vera, Shea butter and vitamin e to hydrate the skin. The lovely smell of lavender will relax the body and sooth the mind.  

Follow these simple beauty steps to feel stress free come race day. You can now spend more time in the morning laughing with your girl squad and drinking champagne!
