Get your glow on for Christmas

The festive season is just around the corner and with it comes a social calendar overflowing with family, friends and work commitments. Longer hours, later nights, indulging in holiday food and drink can all take a toll on our skin. And at a time when we want it to radiate most brightly, skin needs consistency. Skin care is self-care, so make a commitment to yourself to care for your skin over the holiday season and reap the rewards into the New Year with our tried and tested tips.

 

Keep up your regular skincare routine

Consistency is key and you’ve worked so hard throughout the year to maintain that glowing complexion. No matter what time you make it home, ensure you complete your routine before your head hits the pillow, and your skin will thank you for it. If you’re travelling and can only take a handful of products with you, we recommend making sure you at least have a cleanser, serum, moisturiser, and face mask.

Top Tip: Never be without your favourites in travel sizes. Discover our Mini Travel Duo 

 

Stay hydrated inside and out

The festive season is a time of indulgence, however that often means foods that are high in both sugar and salt and drinking larger quantities of alcohol thanks to Christmas cocktails and Champagne toasts. But overindulging may contribute to drying out the skin, resulting in a lacklustre complexion and even excess oil as it tries to compensate. Combat dehydration by drinking plenty of water throughout the day and fill your plate with servings of leafy salads and fresh fruit for balance while treating skin to a weekly moisture mask for holiday harmony.

Destress with a spa ritual

Christmas is a time to think of others but just as important is self-care, so pause to check in with your skin and treat it to something special. In addition to your regular skincare routine, treat your complexion to a nightly facial massage with your favourite face oil to ease away the stress of the day, or a luxurious at home body treat that will have you glowing throughout the season.

Don’t forget your beauty sleep

Busy festive season schedules don’t leave much time for sleep but it is much needed by your body’s largest organ, skin. Lack of sleep or poor sleep quality can result in decreased levels of skin hydration, in turn, skin can appear dry, dull, translucent and pores may appear larger in size. Sleep really is the magic ingredient in your glow-up toolbox so make sleep and hydration a priority this season and your complexion will revel in Christmas cheer.

Top Tip: Struggling to switch off? Spritz a little Lavender Hydrating Mist  on your pillow and apply Lavender Hand Cream  to your hands and cradle them to your face to help promote relaxation.
