The holidays are my favorite time of year! Not to mention my birthday is just a week before Christmas. I get super-hyped with the anticipation of seeing friends and family, indulging in tasty seasonal treats, and enjoying the change of the seasons all make it the most wonderful time of the year.
All of the annual pleasures aside, the holidays are often accompanied by a bit of extra stress which can play tricks on your complexion. Taking extra care with your holiday skincare will help keep you looking sexy, fabulous, and festive, whether you’re waiting under the mistletoe or riding in a one-horse open sleigh.
Today, I want to prepare your skin for the holiday season, plus some easy holiday skincare tips that will keep you glowing all winter long.
How to Prepare Your Skin for the Holidays
Preparation is the key to success to prevent skincare blunders this holiday season. These are some of the best ways to keep your routine in check and that sexy glow during the winter.
Wash Your Face Regularly
Traveling is no excuse for you not to be consistent with your routine. Don't let the festivities distract you from what your skincare needs. Properly washing your face day and night will help remove toxins and protect your skin from the outside weather element. Before you go to bed at night, you should always remove all of the makeup you are wearing
Our EMBRACE antioxidant cleanser combat free radical damage to your skin with the benefits of Vitamin C, aloe, avocado oil, dl panthenol. This formula removes makeup, excess oils, and debris. Our cleanser promotes healing, restores the damage, and improves hydration.
Use a Serum Day Or Night
Traveling can mean being in and out of different humidity-level environments causing your skin to become dehydrated. Have your serum handy with your products while traveling. Apply it before your moisturizer to lock in the added hydration and protection. We do know that a good serum can be the difference between a dull and glowing complexion. Our REVEAL Triple Peptide + Hyaluronic Acid plays a vital role in the makeup of elastin fibers which is also a type of protein that's flexible and allows the connective tissues to stretch and spring back into shape, replicating an elastic band's action. It also helps to increase cell turnover that slows down after we turn 20 years old.
Hydration, Hydration, Hydration
During your holiday travels hydration is essentials for your skincare needs during the winter. Dr. Sarkar explains that the air on planes has notoriously lower humidity, around 10 to 20 percent less than what you breathe standing on the tarmac. She explains that this can wreak havoc on your skin by drying it out. To give your pores a fighting chance as you reach cruising altitude, board with a clean, fresh face and apply moisturizer and a face mist throughout the flight—especially a cross-Atlantic one. Revitalize your skin with Our Hydrating Aloe + Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spray. The fine Sea Salt and blue-green algae & kelp extracts in this formula helps to balance and tone the skin while also hydrating and re-mineralizing. This toner covers all the bases with nutrient-rich ingredients featuring moisture-boosting and clarifying properties to treat your skin right.
Don't Forget to Moisturize.
This important step brings it all together. We know the winter season can be tortuous on our precious skin. The dry air and drying heat in our homes causes our skin to become increasingly dry and itchy. This dryness can result in not only physical effects such as flaking or cracking but can also be incredibly uncomfortable for us to endure.
The Empower Day Treatment is a maximally rich winter moisturizer for those with dry skin or who want a day or overnight moisturizing treatment. This ream smoothes and soothes your winter dry skin while, with regular use, decreasing the appearance of fine lines. It contains sea buckthorn oil which is great for soothing your irritated and dry winter skin and protecting it from the harsh environmental conditions of winter!
Be happy, be merry and be safe this winter. Establishing a holiday skincare routine will help you get through this winter without sacrificing your complexion. These tips and tricks will keep your skin sexy, healthy, and glowing as you enjoy the most wonderful time of the year.
