The holiday season is all about celebrating with loved ones, traveling, and indulging in yummy treats. However, all of this festive fun can take a toll on your skin & overall well-being. Now that the New Year is here, it's time to get serious about your skincare routine and self-care game.
Follow these tips to get your skincare routine & well-being back on track:
- Use a gentle cleanser:
First things first - if your skin is covered in dirt and grime, it's not going to look its best. Make cleansing morning & night a priority to keep your skin looking fresh. Use a gentle cleanser, such as Flawless's Gentle Foaming Clay Facial Cleanser, to remove impurities and excess oil without stripping your skin of its natural oils. This will keep your complexion looking radiant and healthy.
- Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate:
The holiday season often involves late nights, alcohol consumption, and nonstop travel, which can all lead to dehydration and dry, dull skin. Make sure to keep your skin moisturized to combat these negative effects and get back that healthy, glowing complexion. We recommend using Flawless's Double Balancing Cream with hyaluronic acid and seaweed extract to hydrate and rebalance your skin.
- Incorporate facial masks into your skincare routine:
After the holiday season, it's time to give your skin some TLC with a face masking marathon. Facial masks are a great way to give your skin an extra boost of hydration and nourishment after all the festive fun. Terre Verdi's award-winning ArganShea Multitasking Cream combines the nourishing properties of shea butter, the restorative powers of argan oil, and the healing benefits of calendula oil to rejuvenate, soften, and smooth your skin.
- Exfoliate regularly:
The holiday season can lead to a build-up of dead skin cells, which can contribute to a dull, uneven skin tone. To help slough off dead skin cells, incorporate a gentle exfoliator into your skincare routine a few times a week like Terre Verdi's CocoaBamboo Exfoliating Treatment ClayMask. With the combined benefits of cocoa & bamboo powder, this treatment mask will leave your skin polished and soft.
- Get plenty of sleep:
Let's be real, the holidays can totally mess with our sleep patterns, which can have a negative impact on our skin and overall well-being. Make sure to get plenty of sleep to give your skin and body time to repair, regenerate, and recover from all the festive activities. Establishing a healthy sleep routine is key to maintaining healthy skin. Wind down in the evenings with nourishing herbal teas and aromatherapy with essential oils to ensure a good night's sleep. Trust us, your skin (and body) will thank you in the morning!
- Take some "me time":
Finally, the holiday season can be a busy time, and it's important to make time for self-care. Whether it's a relaxing bath, meditation, or a walk in nature, find activities that help you to unwind and de-stress. This will not only benefit your skin but your overall well-being as well.
By incorporating these tips into your post-holiday skincare and well-being routine, you'll be well on your way to looking and feeling your best. Don't let the holiday season derail your skincare and well-being goals - take the time to pamper yourself and your skin will thank you for it.
