As we embrace the party season, the late nights, excessive eating and decadent drinking, can take its toll on our skin, so we’ve put together some top skin care tips to help keep your complexion glowing this festive season!
Prep Your Skin!
A few weeks before the party season starts, try to prep your skin by regularly exfoliating and moisturising. Exfoliating removes oil, dirt and dead skin from the surface of your skin and prevents your pores from clogging up which can lead to spots and breakouts. Furthermore, regularly exfoliating will ensure healthy growth and renewal of skin. It is also important to apply a nourishing moisturiser to keep it soft, hydrated and supple.
Watch Your Diet
The easiest way to improve the appearance of your skin is to ensure you have a balanced and varied diet containing all the major vitamins. Providing the correct nutrition to your skin helps to promote skin growth and renewal which will result in healthier, younger looking skin. But over the festive season, diets tend to go out the window! To improve your skin from within try taking a skin care supplement such as Perfectace Platinum Collagen. This provides a high quality source of pure marine collagen and a combination of essential vitamins and minerals that have been proven to improve skin structure and appearance.
We all tend to drink more over the festive season, so during the run up try replacing cups of coffee and tea with glasses of water. This can go a long way to improving the overall hydration level of your body and importantly, your skin. All cells require water to function optimally and the effects of dehydration are visibly noticeable on your skin. Drinking your eight recommended glasses of water a day (or more) can help to hydrate and improve moisture levels to leave your skin supple and plump.
Get More Beauty Sleep
Ensuring that you get a full night’s sleep can make all the difference to your appearance. Getting enough rest can help banish bags under the eyes, reduce wrinkles and revitalise dull and dark skin. Lack of sleep can accelerate the ageing process, reduce hydration levels and reduce the rate of repair and skin growth which can worsen the condition of your skin. A good night’s sleep can reverse the damage done to your skin by allowing it time to heal and repair.
Try To Relax
The run up to Christmas can be stressful, especially when you are running round the shops looking for the perfect presents! We know it’s easier said than done but try to relax. High stress levels can lead to an increase in stress hormones which can promote the production of oils by glands in the skin. This increased oil production can build up and clog pores.
