With only 6 days to go before Race Week at the Cheltenham Festival, there’s still plenty of time to prepare your skin for a perfectly radiant complexion, that will last all day.

A combination of a pre race day facial treatment and some helpful tips on the day will keep your skin nourished and looking fabulous all day long.

On The Day

Here’s 4 things you can be doing on the day to make sure your skin stays hydrated:

Drink plenty of water in between alcoholic drinks

Drinking alcohol will dehydrate your body, including your skin leaving it looking flat. But drinking water in between alcoholic ones will help flush out your system, keeping your body hydrated and your skin glowing. It will also stop you from getting really drunk too.

Eat Well

Nourishing your skin from the inside out is the best start to the day, and if your going to be out in the elements all day you need as much nourishment as you can get, so stock up on your 5 a day.

Eating a couple of fruit snacks throughout the day is also a great way to keep your skin looking on top form. So if you can get your hands on some fruit or pack some in your bag, your skin will be grateful for the vitamin boost.


For extra protection from the cold and wind, apply a deeply nourishing moisturiser before you apply your make up. Ideally one with added SPF.

Before The Races

There are also some great treatments that will give your skin a much needed burst of hydration to keep it looking bright and beautiful for the big day.

Hydralift Collagen Facial

The focus for this intensive repairing treatment is the application of a 99% Collagen Veil, which delivers a burst of moisture to your skin, whilst plumping out fine lines and wrinkles.

This perfect pre races facial hydrates and replenishes vital moisture levels to your skin, leaving you with a youthful and enlivened complexion.

IPL Rejuvenation

Laser rejuvenation uses a specially crafted beam of thermal energy that gets to work deep into the layers of your skin. Unlike peels or abrasive skin exfoliation, these laser beams of heat precisely target and vaporise damaged skin.

This treatment is a great way to achieve an even skin tone and texture without any down time at all.

Express Facial

This 30 minute treatment will deeply cleans and exfoliate your skin, removing any dull, dead skins cells. Topped off with either a nourishing mask therapy or massage, you skin will be left race day ready.
