How To Prep Skin For This Party Season

How To Prep Skin For This Party Season

Party season is almost upon us and it only means one thing. Christmas feasts and New Year’s parties are upon us once again. While we’re all for indulging, all that festivity and merriment can take a toll on our skin. A packed holiday calendar leaves you with barely any time to catch up on sleep, let alone take care of your skin.

To prep you for the frenzy ahead, here are some expert tips on how to keep your complexion party perfect throughout the holidays.

Clean your makeup brushes weekly

Prevent untimely breakouts by cleaning your makeup brushes regularly. Without regular cleansing, chances are you’re spreading product build-up, grime, dust and bacteria all over your face. Make time to cleanse your brushes once a week and minimise chances of unforeseen breakouts.

Pro tip: dry your brushes bristles down to avoid warping.

Exfoliate your way to brighter skin

Bid farewell to dull and dehydrated skin with regular exfoliation to remove impurities (dead skin cells cause dullness) for brighter, younger skin. Follow up with a mask to plump and moisturise skin, further enhancing your glow.

Complement day-to-day cleansing with DrGL® Cleanser Scrub. This ultra-fine scrub removes flaky dead cells and blackheads. Skin is polished, refined and regenerated, ready for the full benefits of skincare that follows.

Add some sparkle

There’s no better time to add some shimmer and sparkle to your beauty regime than Christmas. Add instant radiance to your skin with a highlighter. Focus on the highest points of your face and cheekbones to enhance your features and illuminate your complexion for a healthy glow.

Stay hydrated

Go ahead, indulge in those cocktails but remember to have a glass or two of water as well to balance out the alcohol and keep your skin well-hydrated. Alcohol combined with party food can lead to dehydration, and dehydrated skin looks older, causes blemishes and blocks pores so make sure you drink a lot of water! *Not a new tip, but it always works*

Pro tip: use serums or moisturisers with Hyaluronic Acid, a #HydrationHero that holds up to 1,000 times its own weight in water.

Suitable for even the most sensitive skin, the superbly hydrating DrGL® Collagen Essence formula penetrates deep within to deliver and retain moisture beyond skin’s surface. Skin is plumped from within, feels firmer and more supple as well.

Get your beauty sleep

Make sure you get enough sleep so your body and skin can regenerate. Your body replenishes skin cells and produces collagen and elastin while you’re sleeping, so take those zzz’s seriously and rest up when you can. Since your skin is hard at work repairing the day’s damage while you’re asleep, help speed up the healing process by using the right serums before you sleep and wake up to vibrant, glowing skin.

Upgrade those facials

Sometimes, your skin needs more than a DIY facial. Stronger, healthier skin will better be able to deal with the stress of the holidays. Give your skin a helping hand with a pampering, invigorating treatment for your face that will get you glowing in no time.

Intensively repair, revitalise and rejuvenate skin cells from within with DrSpa®’s range of treatments.

Now you’re all set. Go forth and enjoy the most wonderful time of the year!
