The festive season is fun, but getting ready for your year-end events to shopping for gifts can get crazy. Also, alongside the heightened anxiety, you may feel less inclined to complete your usual skincare routines. It's hard to find time for that at the end of a hectic day. By the end of the month, it can leave a mark on your face and make you feel that you've aged overnight.
Busy times can take a healthy glow from facial skin, leaving us with a dull complexion. Here is how you can keep your skin merry and reduce the harm during this busy period:
HYDRATE YOUR SKIN
One of the most significant changes you can make in terms of skincare is to drink more water. Especially over the festive season when we consume more alcohol than we usually do. It takes all the fluid out of the skin. Have a glass of water for every alcoholic drink you have. Water is so good for our skin. It prevents our skin from drying out and showing fine lines. Water plumps up the skin, making it appear more youthful. It's not a new tip – but it's worth remembering.
LEMON WATER DETOX
First thing in the morning, try to drink some warm water with lemon. Not only it's an excellent boost of vitamin C, but it will also clean your liver and hydrate your body after a night's sleep.
GET RID OF DEAD SKIN CELLS
Exfoliation is a fantastic way to push the reset button on your skin. Highly effective in brightening your skin and making it appear clear and radiant, it works by removing the topmost layer of dead cells, to achieve a smoother surface which better reflects the light.
WASH YOUR FACE TWICE A DAY
Our skin collects a lot of debris over a day. Make-up, dirt, toxins in the air and more, it's vital that before we go to bed, we get rid of it all. Cleansing the skin removes dirt from your pores, smooths out the skin and removes impurities built up over the day. Then pamper your skin with your favourite products.
MASKS CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE
Face masks are fantastic for ensuring your skin is getting enough nutrition to promote brightness, smoothness, and elasticity, and they force you to take 15 minutes from your day to RELAX!
