We all want glowing skin for the holidays! Here are a few tips from Maureen to implement into your routine and daily life. Healthy skin depends on a multitude of factors and when you take care of it with a well-rounded approach, you’ll notice a glow brighter than ever before!
Hydration is Key: Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. Use a hydrating facial mist throughout the day to refresh and moisturize your skin. Hydrated skin = happy skin!
Healthy Diet: Consume a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and antioxidants. Include foods with omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon and chia seeds, to promote skin health. Try to avoid skin enemies like sugars and too much alcohol.
Exfoliation: Regular exfoliation removes dead skin cells, promoting a smoother and brighter complexion. Aim for a couple times a week and use a gentle exfoliator to avoid irritation.
Sheet Masks: Treat your skin to a hydrating or brightening sheet mask a day or two before an event. Sheet masks provide an instant boost of moisture and nutrients to give your skin the glow you’re looking for. A personal favorite I love: Neo-Cutis Professional NeoRestore Facial Mask.
Facial Massage: Stimulate blood circulation by giving yourself a gentle facial massage. Use gentle upward and outward motions to promote lymphatic drainage and a natural glow. This can be done with a tool or simply with your hands.
Moisturize: Use a hydrating and nourishing moisturizer to keep your skin supple. Apply a slightly thicker layer at night for extra hydration. SkynBar Power Calm is my go to for colder months.
Sunscreen: Even during the winter months, apply sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. UV protection is crucial for preventing premature aging and maintaining healthy skin. My daily go to is TZ Defense tinted SPF.
Adequate Sleep: Ensure you get enough sleep each night to allow your skin to regenerate and repair. A well-rested complexion looks brighter and more youthful.
Reduce Stress: Practice stress-reducing activities like yoga or meditation. High stress levels can contribute to skin issues, including breakouts. Not only will your skin look better, you’ll feel better.
Quick De-Puffing Trick: Place a cold spoon or a refrigerated eye mask on puffy areas to reduce swelling. Cucumber slices on the eyes can also help with puffiness. Relaxing and so soothing!
DIY Face Mist: Create a DIY face mist with rose water and aloe vera for a refreshing pick-me-up. Carry it in your bag for a quick hydration boost throughout the day.
Highlight Strategically: Use a subtle highlighter on the high points of your face for an instant radiant effect. I love the Hourglass Bronzer in Ambient. Focus on the cheekbones, brow bones, and the bridge of your nose.
Prep with Primer: Use a hydrating primer before applying makeup to create a smooth canvas. This helps makeup adhere better and gives a natural glow.Remember to patch test new makeup products before trying them, especially if you have sensitive skin.Which tip will you be trying out this holiday season?
