The holiday season is fast approaching! Many of us are busy shopping for the perfect present, spending time with family and making plans, making us forget about our skin care regimen! Yes, it is the perfect time to relax and enjoy yourself but remember, this is also the time of the year when your skin is exposed to the scorching heat of the sun.
Aussie weather can be extremely harsh during summer especially here in Kal, so here at Active Skin Solutions – we have put together some skin care tips which you might already know but are too stubborn to follow. Here they are:
Drink lots of water. Too much heat all around you can make your skin dry. You don’t want to have a dry skin while attending your family Christmas party, do you? When going out, be sure to apply your sun block – it can help protect your skin against the damaging rays of the sun. If possible, use an oil free moisturiser with sunscreen as the hot weather tends to make your skin greasier.
Before a party, make sure you have a good sleep – at least 7 to 8 hours. This will help your skin and eyes look fresher. While it might be tempting to stay all night at a party, set a curfew for yourself. Lack of sleep can greatly affect your skin.
Let’s face it – the holiday season is not all about dressing up and the foods, but it’s the perfect time to enjoy a festive drink as well! If you’re drinking alcohol, don’t forget to drink water after. Alcoholic drinks stimulate your kidneys, causing you to become dehydrated and resulting in dry skin. Water can dilute the alcohol and can maintain the moisture level in your skin. The key here is to limit your alcoholic beverages.
The holiday season is the perfect time to show off your makeup skills. Showing up at a party with the perfect makeup can boost your confidence – but don’t forget to thoroughly cleanse your skin and remove all of your makeup before going to bed. Getting home at 5am is not an excuse not to remove your makeup. If you don’t, your skin pores will clog with dirt due to your makeup and you will develop different skin spots which can be a lot of hard work to treat.
For a skin that glows, do your mini facial at home hours before you go out. You don’t have to visit your salon – you can do it yourself. It’s not difficult and much cheaper too.
