Polly’s Picks – May 24

Self Care in Style for Life’s Red Carpet Moments

May is here! The final month of spring, time really does fly by, doesn’t it? A month of rebirth, inspiration and excitement as we close out the first two quarters of the year and look forward to a long, relaxing summer.

Last month, we unveiled our much-anticipated bridal packages at Enhance Cosmetic Clinic, ahead of the upcoming wedding season, soon to be filled with love and celebration! Our bridal parties skincare routines are in full effect; paired with our exclusive injectable and non surgical services for optimal skin health on the big day. Investment and commitment is key for best results.

This month’s calendar is packed with dazzling events that capture the essence of elegance and sophistication. From the prestigious Met Gala to the glamorous Cannes Film Festival, celebrities from around the world will gather to celebrate fashion and cinema. Whilst we all may not all be walking the red carpet, there’s something undeniably empowering about knowing that the same treatments favoured by celebrities, are available to us too – more importantly right on our doorstep!

At Enhance Cosmetic Clinic, we understand the importance of looking and feeling your best for life’s memorable moments. That’s why we’re proud to offer the Signature CACI Synergy Facial— a long time celebrity favourite renowned for its toning microcurrent system. Hollywood’s A-listers from Margot Robbie to Jennifer Aniston and many, many more are firm fans, prepping the skin and building the foundational canvas for make-up artists to work from.

Whether you’re preparing for a wedding, a milestone birthday, or simply want to feel radiant and tightened for a night out, the Signature CACI Synergy Facial delivers unparalleled lifting results. Travel, champagne and late nights will definitely mean you need an uplifting boost this Spring. Opt for a 60 minute express session or indulge in a 90 minute facial workout. 

Amidst the excitement of high-profile gatherings, it’s essential to remember the importance of self-care and well-being. Mental Health Awareness Week (13th – 19th) serves as a timely reminder to prioritise our mental and emotional health. As a mother and business owner, I’ve experienced, like many of you, the challenges of balancing multiple roles and responsibilities. There have been days when the pressures of motherhood and entrepreneurship have felt overwhelming, and it was during those times that I leaned on my support network and prioritised self-care to keep on track.

I understand firsthand the weight of these expectations and the constant striving for balance and perfection. Why is it, when the demands of work pull me in one direction, the needs of my family tug at my heartstrings in another? It’s a sure fire balancing act that has required flexibility, resilience, and a healthy dose of self-compassion.

In my role as a business coach, I often find myself guiding women through this intricate maze of competing priorities. We discuss strategies for time management by prioritising tasks, setting clear goals and to focus time on what matters most. It’s about finding that sweet spot where productivity meets fulfilment—a place where we can thrive both personally and professionally, without sacrificing one for the other.

Let’s remember to be kind to ourselves—to give ourselves permission to rest, recharge, and revel in the beauty of simply being. Kick back with a cuppa, snooze in on the weekends, have a makeup free moment, and leave the hair wash for another day. In finding balance, we discover the freedom to embrace life’s imperfections. Never forget to savour the moments that truly matter and grab the dry shampoo if you need it!

And speaking of embracing life’s beauty, May also marks the start of the Chelsea Flower Show—a celebration of nature’s splendour, breathtaking floral displays and innovative design. As someone who embraces mother nature, I love immersing myself in the beauty of our British seasonal cycles. Flowers for me, uplift the spirit, and a recent visit to the Southwold Flower Company in Suffolk was the perfect treat; as I wandered their pick your own flower fields, with my closest friends and Penelope in tow. Let the month of May be a reminder to cherish life’s simple pleasures and prioritise self-care, as we navigate life’s ever-changing landscape.
