We share our top tips for flawless, radiant and healthy skin in time for the festive season
With the end of the year, the silly season is upon us and it's full steam ahead; parties, bubbles, sunshine, lipstick and lots of laughs.
As much as we love a good time, all those cocktails, canapes and late nights take their toll and can wreak havoc on our skin.
During the season of excess, our skin suffers all sorts of unwanted effects, such as breakouts, sunburn and dryness. While no one expects you to cancel all your social plans, there are a few things you can do to to help prevent your skin from too much damage and dullness, so that you can get your glow on.
The best thing you can do for your skin this party season is to protect it from the sun. Regular exposure to UVA and UVB rays can speed up ageing and affect the appearance of your skin. If you are heading outdoors, choose a sunscreen with a SPF 50+. Your Cover is an excellent secondary sun protector over the top of your sunscreen base, and as an added bonus it provides an even smooth complexion giving you that perfect summer glow without the damage to your skin.
PAMPER YOUR SKIN
Take some time out for a revitalising treatment at your local medi spa. Our team love LED therapy, using the red lights promotes collagen and elastin to rejuvenate the skin giving you the instant plumping of the skin. For breakouts, the blue light will treat the bacteria that causes the breakouts.
CLEANSE AND REMOVE THAT MAKEUP
No matter how tired you are at the end of a day, avoid going to bed with a full face of makeup, it will only lead to breakouts. The skin cannot function properly with makeup on it and when you are sleeping, it is working it's hardest to renew. Your Everyday Cleanse is your best friend for makeup removal, helping to replenish and revive even the most delicate skin type.
Try to drink more water than usual to flush out the toxins in your body. Our team's favourite to lock in moisture for Summer is Hydrate Your Skin. We also recommend adding a serum that will not only hydrate the skin, but will also brighten to get you through those long summer day and nights, Boost Your B3.
