The holidays are just around the corner. Invitations to Christmas and New Year’s parties are already flooding our inboxes. They’re going to be so much fun! But they’re gonna take their toll on our skin too. Don’t let that happen to you. With a bit of preparation and TLC, our skin can look amazing throughout the party season. Here’s how:
Mask it up
Face masks are the easiest, fastest way to achieve gorgeous, glowing skin. Hydrating sheet masks, like Tony Moly Age-Defying Snail Hydro-Gel Face Mask Sheet, are a great pick-me-up for tired, dull skin. Oily skin? Get rid of excess oil and impurities with the help of a clay mask. We love Estee Lauder Clear Difference Purifying Mask. It leaves skin so soft and flawless!
Eye It Up
Masks aren’t just for the face. Our eyes need them, too. Especially if we want them to shine and sparkle from midnight till dawn. Our favorite is Chantecaille The Gold Energizing Eye Recovery Mask. Its’ expensive, but makes our peepers look amazing all night long. You can also use it the morning after to battle dark circles and tired eyes. A worthy investment.
Water, that is. You’re gonna drink enough alcohol at parties soon. Now, give your skin some TLC and gobble down your eight glasses of water a day. Water helps the kidneys get rid of waste and toxins and deeply hydrates skin, giving your complexion that naturally healthy glow.
Brighten it up
Make your skin shine like a bright star this party season. It’s easy. All you have to do is exfoliate. It removes the dead cells that are accumulating on the surface of your skin, stealing your natural glow. You can get rid of them with a Foreo device (10% OFF AND FREE SHIPPING WITH CODE CAREERGIRL) or a glycolic acid-based exfoliant, like Paula’s Choice Exfoliating 8% AHA Gel. It exfoliates skin and promotes collagen production, keeping wrinkles away from our faces for longer. Win win.
Juice it up
Doesn’t matter how fancy your skincare products are, there’s only so much they can do if you don’t follow a healthy, balanced diet. And during party season our bodies need more vitamins and nutrients than usual to stay fit and keep up with all that dancing and merry-making. Smoothies are the perfect way to get this extra fix. Pineapple, rich in vitamin C, gives skin a radiant glow. Add avocado and coconut for softer, smoother skin. And green tea does wonder for wrinkles.
How do you prepare your skin for a wild party season?
