How to Take Care of Your Skin During the Busy Holiday Season
The holiday season is here. The days are shorter and the "to do" lists are longer. And while it may seem tempting to cut corners on your skincare routine, it could hurt you in the long run. Chilly weather, sweet treats, and holiday stress will take a toll on your skin if you aren’t careful. Here are some ways to take care of yourself this holiday season.
Remove Your Makeup Every Night
Most of the year this sounds pretty logical. But the holidays are different. Last minute shopping, cocktail parties, or cooking into the wee hours of the night can push our bodies to the limit during the holidays. Sometimes all we want to do is crash at the end of the day.
Despite this, make it a habit to remove your makeup, even if you don’t feel like it. Otherwise, you’ll add extra stress and damage to your skin in an already challenging time. Use eye makeup remover to delicately remove makeup on your eyes, and a high-quality facial cleanser to remove dirt and makeup from your face. It may take a few extra minutes of time, but your skin needs to rest as much as you do at night.
Use Lukewarm Water to Wash Your Face
Depending on where you live, the weather may be cold right now. And the idea of splashing your face with hot water sounds fantastic. But it’s not a good idea. Hot water strips your skin of oil, removing much-needed moisture when it is cold and dry outside. To protect your skin’s natural oils, use lukewarm water instead when washing your face.
Choose Your Skincare Products Carefully
Finally, be selective in the skincare products you choose. Holidays can get expensive, but this is not a time to neglect your skin. Choose pharmaceutical grade skin care products to maximize your skin's protection over the holidays. These products are held to higher standards than your typical drugstore facial products. They are often more concentrated, so they last longer. Plus, they deliver visible results.
