The holiday season is nearly upon us and is usually a time of immense joy and excitement. And if you’re heading back to your hometown to visit with family and friends or staying home and attending that annual Christmas party your employer throws every year, you are likely seeing many people.
Of course, you want to look your best and make the most of every photo-op these holidays and to prove to your mom that you are sleeping enough. Which means this can also be a time of stress and anxiety.
Here are four easy tips to get glowing, beautiful skin this holiday season:
Even in warm, sunny California, the weather in winter can do a lot of damage to your skin. Moving from the outside chill into your warm home or office can seriously dry out your skin, resulting in flaking, fine lines, and premature wrinkles. Our skin tends to hold more moisture in summer and spring, so make sure your skin is adequately hydrated this winter.
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean the sun can’t do just as much damage to your skin as it can in the summer or spring months. So, make sure you apply an oil-free moisturizer with an SPF of 15 or higher whenever you go outside, whether it’s sunny or raining. You’ll protect your skin from premature signs of aging, skin cancer, and redness.
2. Weekend Exfoliation
Harsh winter weather means damage to the skin, giving it a flaky, textured appearance. Exfoliating weekly is an essential step in your skincare routine to get that sparkling party-ready skin. Make time during your weekend to buff away dead skin, unblock pores, and dissolve unwelcome texture with a gentle exfoliation like a sugar scrub or chemical exfoliant with BHAs and AHAs, which include lactic acid, glycolic acid, or salicylic acid.
Adding a physical or chemical exfoliation to your weekly beauty routine will reveal your vibrant, beautiful skin.
3. Skip the Extra Hot Shower
Nothing feels better than a steaming hot shower on a cold winter’s night. Unfortunately, the hot water can strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving you with dry, cracked, uneven skin. To help restore that glowing holiday skin, avoid the long shower by shortening it or turning the temperature down, especially when washing or rinsing your face.
