The holidays can be an exciting and challenging time for both you and your skin. Now is the perfect time to establish the hydrating, stress-reducing skincare rituals that will carry you through the season with a fresher face. Here are five tips for an effective holiday party skincare routine.
While many holiday parties take place at night, it’s important to consistently get sufficient sleep each night to maintain a refreshed appearance. Avoid overcrowding your schedule this season to help ensure that you’re able to sleep 7-8 hours on most nights.
Drink Enough Water
Aim to drink six to eight glasses of water every day. Water helps your body detoxify and your skin to retain its elasticity, so you feel and look more energized at holiday gatherings.
Sleep with a Humidifier
The drier air associated with colder months can take a toll on your skin. Consider investing in a bedroom humidifier to use each night. It’s a simple way to wake up with more hydrated skin.
Step Up Your Moisturizer
Just as you wouldn’t step outside in a light jacket in the freezing cold, don’t rely on a lightweight moisturizer to carry you through the chilly holiday season. Talk to the SkinCenter team about the SkinCeuticals and Neocutis moisturizing products they offer to turn your smooth skin dreams into a reality.
Take Time to Relax
We get it — the holidays can be super busy for many people. But stress can do a number on your skin. Seek to weed out any traditions or happenings that you find to be more draining than refreshing. For instance, try shopping online rather than in-person if waiting in long lines and getting stuck in holiday traffic makes your heart race faster.
Another way to feel more at peace is to spend 10 minutes meditating or doing some light yoga when you wake up and before you go to bed each day. These simple habits don’t take much time and they’ll pay off with a clearer head and more Zen spirit as you navigate the holiday hustle.
