The holidays are just around the corner. 'Tis the season to overindulge and overextend yourself. Rushing from party to party might be fun and exciting, but if a person is not careful, it will take a toll on his or her skin. But with a little extra effort, a people can look their best -- in spite of holiday stress. carefair.com, the beauty and skincare portal, provides skincare tips and tricks that will keep a person looking fabulous and feeling festive during the upcoming holiday months. Cheers!
1) Start with a Clean Slate
Kick off this festive and busy season with healthy skin: book an appointment for your favorite skincare treatment. Whether a person likes to indulge in pampering aromatherapy facials or prefer a quick fruit acid peel, deep cleaning and exfoliating skin will help sustain its clarity and radiance during the holidays.
2) Give Your Skin a Breath of Fresh Air
Oxygenated skincare products give a brighter, clearer skin by delivering it with antioxidants and nutrients. Try an oxygen mask to perk up a dull, over-partied complexion and activate the skin`s metabolism, to improve circulation and banish blemishes.
3) Send Under Eye Bags Packing
You sure had fun at the company Christmas party ... perhaps too much fun. So you overdid it on the champagne, gobbled an embarrassing amount of peanut brittle and got four hours of sleep. Make puffy peepers presentable with a firming eye serum or gel. Always keep an eye gel or eye mask in the fridge for just these kind of emergencies. Avoid creams or balms -- they won`t help lessen the swelling. If you have time, brew some tea and then use the cooled tea bags as eye compresses. The tannin helps reduce puffiness.
4) Relax Wrinkles with Peptides
Want to look years younger without painful, expensive injections? Say 'no' to the needle and 'yes' to one of the many products formulated with peptides like Gamma Amino Butric Acid (GABA). Peptides help relax and lessen the appearance of brow furrows, crow's feet and other expression lines and creases.
5) Quench Your Skin`s Thirst
Sugar, alcohol, stress and lack of sleep are the main culprits behind dehydrated, lackluster holiday skin. If you can`t curtail the parties, get extra help from a hydrating facial mask. To restore skin`s natural moisture levels and luminosity, try a cream, gel or cloth mask as often as needed. Look for anti-inflammatory and soothing ingredients like green tea and hyaluronic acid.
6) Take Your Vitamins
Winter is no time to skimp on nutrition. Be vigilant about supplements to ensure you're getting the antioxidants, minerals and essential fatty acids the skin and body needs. Don`t like taking pills? Take vitamins in powder form -- just add an on-the-go packet to water or juice. Try to drink at least 8 oz. of water every day. Remember: alcohol and sugar are extremely dehydrating.
