Admit it, you've been looking forward to the holiday season all year. Amidst all the emotions and happy frenzy, one thing that we often tend to neglect is our skin. Staying up late, consumption of alcohol, binging on greasy foods, and makeup application are some of the many things that could be hurting your skin. To help you from causing havoc over your skincare routine, we’ve put together a list of holiday season skincare tips that will help you to be mindful of your skincare this holiday season.
An Ideal Festive Skincare Routine – The Essentials
A lazing mood makes it all the more difficult to do the usual skincare routine in the holiday season. Always remember - skincare is a commitment. You have to do it every day for it to pay the biggest dividends throughout your life.
Holiday Season Skincare Tip #1: Exfoliate
You might be aware that exfoliation helps to rid the skin of dead cells, and reveal glowing skin. Step up your festive look by exfoliating twice a week. For better results, determine your skin type and bring a suitable facial cleanser home.
Holiday Season Skincare Tip #2: Use Face Masks
There’s nothing like treating yourself to a relaxing mask session. You can also get the best of both worlds by going for mask treatments with your family and friends. Skincare - check, quality family time - check! 😉
Holiday Season Skincare Tip #3: Moisturise
This is the most important component of your holiday season skincare routine! Festive seasons often cause the skin to feel dehydrated, dry, and flaky.
To soothe the skin, incorporate a hydrating moisturiser into your skincare routine. You could also give our personalised facial serum a try – it's an absolute beast at moisturising.
Holiday Season Skincare Tip #4: Get That Makeup Off
Focus! Not removing makeup before going to bed has serious ill-effects on your skin. Makeup left overnight can clog your pores and leave your skin more prone to acne.
Always wash your face before getting into the bed. For the days when you are feeling too tired, keep makeup remover wipes by your bedside table.
Lifestyle Tips for Holiday Season Skincare
In addition to an efficient skincare routine, a healthy lifestyle is very important for ideal holiday season skincare.
Holiday Season Skincare Tip #5: Get Enough Sleep
When we are asleep, our brains produce growth hormones that focus on repairing our damaged skin cells. Lack of sleep messes up the repairing process as well as moisture and collagen level of the skin - leaving our skin dehydrated, red and prone to breakouts and ageing signs. Plus, nobody wants those dark circles!
Tip: 7-8 hours of sleep is a must. Rest that brain, body, and skin of yours!
Holiday Season Skincare Tip #6: Keep a Tab on Alcohol
Did someone say shots?!
Sure, that feels sweet n’ nice at first, but once it reaches your tummy, alcohol breaks down into acetaldehyde. If accumulated, this causes serious flushing. Acetaldehyde is also responsible for producing reactive free radicals and damaging DNA, which causes the breakdown of collagen, loss of elasticity and premature ageing signs on the skin.
Tip: For the sake of good holiday season skincare, you can always stick to red wine. It is full of antioxidants, which makes it a better choice.
Holiday Season Skincare Tip #7: Stay Hydrated
We might have alarms and reminders in our homes for drinking enough water, but once we enter vacay mode, all of that is quickly forgotten. Always remember, water hydrates our skin and delivers nutrients to the skin cells.
Vacay or no vacay, 8-10 glasses of water a day is a must.
We don’t want to be the fun police bringing it all up, but being skin enthusiasts ourselves, we deeply care for your skin. And guess what? What follows is a simple way of showering some love and (skin) care on your loved ones.
