1. Eat smart
We’ve all heard of this many times, but that’s because it’s true! Eating well, especially during the holiday season is really important for your skin as there are many delicious festive treats and you’re just tempted to eat everything in sight.
The food you eat directly impacts your skin, so eat plenty of vegetables before every big meal to curb your appetite. Veggies are not only filling, but they contain vitamins and nutrients the skin needs. Start eating a well-balanced diet this year and see a positive change in your skin.
2. Indulge in quick mini-facials
Barely have enough time to keep up with facial appointments due to holiday gatherings and parties? Or are you on a tight budget this holiday season?
DrGL®’s Express Facial Kits will be your holy-grail product this holiday! Whenever you’re in need for a quick pick-me-up for both your skin and yourself after a long, tiring day, take a 10-minute timeout and indulge yourself in our quick mini facial. Our express facial kits, curated with three different types of skin concerns in mind, will have you and your face feeling re-charged!
3. Remove your makeup at the end of the day
Whether you’re getting home late from a holiday countdown or just simply want to crash out from spending the day shopping and wrapping gifts, there’s no excuse to skip taking off your makeup at the end of your night. The last thing you want is to break out during the holidays.
Always have a pack of makeup remover wipes ready by the bed, on your nightstand for nights where you just need to knock out and can’t go through a whole process of removing your makeup.
4. Take full advantage of your night/day off
Parties can be really fun but recovering from them can be a nightmare. Try to get enough sleep and keep yourself hydrated throughout the afternoon. We recommend a glass of detoxifying hot water with fresh squeezed lemon!
Feeling puffy on the face? Quickly de-puff using cold spoons from your freezer or, with aloe vera gel which would cool and soothe your face. Try to make full use of your free time at home to recover and repair yourself!
5. Shield against UV rays
Did you know, UV rays affect us all year round even in the winter season when the skies are grey, and even when the sun seems to be hiding?
UV rays could cause severe damage to the skin that would result in premature aging and even skin cancer. It is very, very important to wear sunscreen to protect your face from the harmful UV rays! Don’t forget to keep your sunscreen hypoallergenic if you have sensitive skin.
6. Your beneficial holiday booze
Always choose red wine over any other alcoholic beverages. As it is said to be the only truly healthy option because it contains resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant found in red wines that has more than just anti-aging properties. Plus, it’s also less sweet and has fewer calories. But drink in moderation. Too much alcohol may lead to breakouts, puffy eyes and wrinkles, you don’t want that!
We recommend sticking to just one glass of wine and enjoy it slowly. We know, that may sound absurd to some but, two glasses might just start a chain reaction of inflammation in your body that may cause your nose and cheeks to become red, unless, if you don’t mind!
7. Benefit from facials
If you have ignored all of the above and need to check in for a much needed help, DrSpa®’s Repair & Rejuvenate intensely repairs, revitalizes and rejuvenates your skin, suitable for even the most sensitive skin types.
Facial treatments fully cleanse your skin in a way that you can’t at home.
It will have you and your face feeling refreshed for the holidays! You have presents planned for everyone else, but why not give yourself one too?
Your holiday season can be extra festive when your skin is glowing and healthy.
These holiday skin tips will help you survive the holiday hustle and recuperate in less than no time! Stay glowy, and have a holly, jolly season!
