Holiday Skincare Tips
'Tis the season for friends and family, booze, and breakouts. Here's how to help your skin face the festivity.
Skin On The Go
Your skin doesn’t know it’s on holiday mode. New temperatures, fluctuating humidity, pollution levels, and even switching from soft or hard water can impact your skin. Why not give it a heads up and prep it right before you disembark? For tired skin, try Barrier+ Triple Lipid-Peptide Lotion from Skin Fix. Powered by vital lipids, nutripeptides, and hyaluronic acid, it targets dehydration and lightweight moisture for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
Sleep Can’t be Beat
While holiday travel, stress, and those extra cocktails can jeopardize your sleep routine, don’t underestimate just how vital it is for healthy skin. Sleep is the time when your body repairs itself and is true for your epidermis as much as it is for your brain or your muscles. During sleep, your skin’s blood flow increases, and the organ rebuilds its collagen and repairs damage from UV exposure, reducing wrinkles and age spots. Aim for 7-9 hours of zzz’s.1
Hydrate. Hydrate. Hydrate.
We can't stress it enough, especially with extra cocktails and cups of coffee coming your way. Keep your body hydrated to flush out toxins and boost your immune system and make sure you're paying extra attention to your skin topically. Opt for serums and moisturizers full of Hyaluronic Acid like the Hydra Plus Ampoule Serum Concentrates by Babor. A concentrated skincare booster for dehydrated skin, it's loaded with Hyaluronic Acid to deeply hydrate and renew the skin. We also love the Squalane + Omega Repair Cream from Biossance, a rich moisturizing repair cream packed with squalane, omega fatty acids, ceramides, and plant sterols help nourish, plump, hydrate, and feed your skin. Apply and repeat.
Chill Out Puffy Eyes
To reduce under-eye puffiness after a long trip, Pam Inman, American Hotel Lodging Association vice president and chief operating officer, says to put crushed ice in a washcloth and apply it under the eyes. "It's an automatic wake-up call that makes you look and feel immediately fresher." We also swear by the BFASU Ice Roller for post travel or post hangover. Just throw them in the freezer and grab to relieve puffy eyes and face, dark circles, and bags under the eyes.2
For a boost of radiance and resilience, add the Strivetin Super-C Retinol Brighten & Correct Vitamin C Serum to your routine. The combination of Retinol and Vitamin C is the dynamic duo you’re after this holiday season for your best and brightest skin yet.
