5 Tips to Keep Skin Looking Great During the Holidays


The holidays usually come with busy schedules, stress, food, desserts, alcohol and cold weather conditions. All these factors affect our body in different ways which also impact the skin’s appearance.

Here are 5 tips to help keep the skin healthy and glowing during the holiday season:

Keep Stress to a Minimum //

Stress affects skin by creating a hormonal imbalances that can create havoc, including: breakouts, redness, inflammation and sensitivity. In order to minimize these, it’s important to remember to take some deep breaths and enjoy the holiday madness as stress-free as possible.

Drink Extra Water //

The body needs extra water in order to internally cleanse itself and to keep everything balanced. If the body is balanced, the skin will also look and feel healthy.

Always Remove Makeup Before Going to Bed  //

If you think one night of sleeping in your makeup won’t make a difference, think again! Makeup is a product that creates a barrier on top of the skin. During the day, it collects dirt, debris, oil and pollutants. It also prevents the skin from receiving oxygen. By choosing to sleep in your makeup, you’re suffocating your skin and taking the risk to irritate it further.

Protect Your Skin //

Always wear a moisturizer and sunscreen during the day, whether it’s sunny or not. Your skin needs protection on a regular basis with the moisturizer acting as a hydrating barrier and the sunscreen as a barrier against the sun.

Don’t Forget to Exfoliate Regularly //

In order to avoid a build-up of dry and flaky skin, it’s important to exfoliate every 2-3 days. This will help keep the skin healthy and glowing!
