Fireworks and lanterns in honour of Chinese New Year are lighting up skylines from Sydney to Shanghai to usher in the Year of the Pig. For celebrating the new lunar calendar year, surrounding yourself with two of the most significant colours in Chinese culture—red (symbolising good fortune and joy) and gold (bringing luck)—is a sure way to summon prosperity for the 12 months ahead.
Beyond the traditional gifting of envelopes in the hues, why not incorporate red and gold into your beauty regimen? After all, some of the most luxurious products are perfectly packaged to meet the holiday’s requirements. Here, a look at 9 beauty products worth celebrating.
