Chilly weather, busy schedules, and travel itineraries mean the holiday season is once again upon us. We may spend our days shopping, while nights have us dancing to tunes at holiday parties. This magical time of year is both fun and busy, but it’s important to remember to stay on top of our skin care routine through all of the holiday bustle. After all, you don’t want to show up to your work holiday party with anything but glowing skin! Below are a few tips to keep your skin looking fresh all night long.
With parties and social engagement increasing during the holidays, we tend to stay up later and miss out on our 8 hours of sleep. Sleepless nights can lead to dark circles and bags under your eyes and a dull, lifeless complexion. Late nights will happen, though, so if you miss a few hours of sleep one night because of holiday cheer, then we suggest applying an eye cream the morning after. Our YOUTH®Restoring Eye Treatment is formulated to deliver anti-aging benefits and visibly reduce the appearance of dark circles.
- Proper diet
Christmas cookies and cocktails are delicious and of course you should partake, but in moderation. Try to balance your occasional sweet treat with a healthy diet overall. As much as we try to eat enough fruits and veggies in a day, with the busy season, it’s hard to ensure we’re getting enough of the nutrients these foods can provide. Try adding a scoop of Organic Greens Booster to your daily smoothie or shake for a boost of vitamins and minerals, which in turn will help give you a winter glow even a snow angel couldn’t compete with.
Water is life, but it’s also a mega boost of goodness for your skin. Make sure to drink a glass of water in between those holiday cocktails you’re having to keep your skin from over drying. Additionally, we recommend you switch to an ultra-hydrating moisturizer to quench your skin before heading out to the party.
Pre-party, try a hydrating face mask while you paint your nails and prep your outfit. By hydrating before applying makeup, you’ll treat your skin to instant and long-lasting moisture.
Post-party, it’s equally important to moisturize. So, after you remove all of your gorgeous makeup and wash your face, apply a night cream before you turn in, so you can wake up refreshed.
- BB cream
BB cream is your new BFF this holiday party season. Our 5-in-1 beauty balm is specially formulated to protect against free radicals and filled with vitamins to nourish your skin. Apply our BB cream directly after moisturizing to even out your skin tone and cover any imperfections. BB cream will help keep your skin looking fresh all night long. Just throw on a cute dress—or blazer and a bow tie—to finish off your look and add a red lipstick to really make your look pop at that annual holiday gathering.
This one is a no-brainer. It’s not a product or special secret—but the best way to get that holiday glow is to have fun. While taking care of your skin and body is important, it’s also necessary to be joyful during this holiday season and embrace the love. Give that special someone a gift or think about pampering yourself with a spa day to de-stress after a busy day of shopping for friends and family. Whatever it is, make sure to smile because that is the best way to show off your gorgeous self.
