With the holidays come a slew of parties, from your company’s annual year-end party to your family’s get together. It’s that time of the year when you can eat and drink as you please. It’s all fun and exciting, and in the haze of partying, you might neglect your skin.
You might be dead tired to do any skincare routine. But you don’t want to welcome a new year with dull and tired-looking skin, right?
Here are some tips to help you maintain glowing skin even if you were out all night celebrating.
Practice a Proper Skincare Routine
Effective skin care starts with knowing your skin type. Because every skin needs a different approach to maintenance. These are the common types:
- Normal – this skin type means that your skin is not too oily and not too dry. What’s good about having a normal skin type is you’ll likely have few imperfections and no severe sensitivity.
- Combination – this type refers to skin that can be dry or normal in certain areas and oily in others, including the nose, forehead, and chin (or the T-zone). This is a common skin type, and you may need to follow a different type of care for various areas.
- Dry – having this skin type may cause your skin to crack, become itchy, and irritated. Dry skin also tends to be dull, less elastic, and has more visible lines.
- Oily – people with oily skin type may have enlarged pores, shiny complexion, and prone to blackheads, pimples, and other blemishes.
You can keep your skin at its best by washing your face thoroughly every day. Choose a cleanser that has the ingredients that match your skin type. Use a toner to remove excess dirt, and don’t forget to moisturize. When you’re going out during the day, always apply sunscreen to protect your skin from UV rays.
Kedma, a luxury cosmetics brand, shares that using products with Dead Sea minerals can help you maintain healthier and softer skin. You can find these minerals in various skincare products, like cleansers, serums, and masks.
Always Remove Your Makeup Before Going to Bed
After having a fun night with your gals, all you want is to snooze right away. It’s understandable that you’ll go home exhausted, but don’t forget to remove your makeup, especially your eye makeup.
Leaving your eye makeup on could cause discomfort. One woman developed black spot on the inside of her eyelids after 25 years of consistent heavy mascara use and inadequate removal.
You should also remove your makeup properly to avoid irritations. And be generous in using makeup removing products to give your skin a complete cleanup.
Get Enough Beauty Rest
Yes, partying is fun, and it is the season to be jolly. But don’t compromise rest because you’ll not only wake up with puffy eyes, but you’re also making your skin age faster, too. Getting enough hours of sleep is one crucial way to maintain your youthful glow. (Tip: don’t party hard on a Sunday night.)
It’s also worth noting that lack of sleep deprives your skin’s ability to repair and rejuvenate. Quality sleep, on the other hand, promotes better protective skin barrier and prevents your skin from sagging.
With all the festivities that the holidays bring, don’t forget to look after your skin. End the year happy and start a new year fresh and glowing.
