The holiday season is in full swing with social events, work parties and family gatherings booking up calendars quickly. Whether you’re preparing for a Christmas party or a New Year’s Eve event, wanting to look your best is a no-brainer. You want to be gorgeous for all the photos that’ll take over Instagram feeds, FB posts and work party prints that your snap happy friends, family and co-workers will take.
Getting glowing, radiant skin is the first step in putting your best face forward for the season’s celebratory shindigs and it begins with ensuring your skincare regiment is on point. Be belle of the ball with these helpful tips for getting your skin holiday-party ready:
Remember to Relax
The holidays are a high-stress season that can wreak havoc on your skin. Stress shows and no one wants to look like the red eyed demon that just awoke to take a holiday photo. Getting enough rest prior to your event is pertinent for pretty skin. Between running around to buy last minute gifts, late night present wrapping sessions, decorating, hosting, attending obligations and everything in between (i.e. regular life), hectic holiday stress is a reality. Keep it at a minimum by getting enough rest and taking time to care for yourself. Your skin will thank you for it.
Staying hydrated is one of the most important skin care steps you can take towards making sure your skin looks great. Drinking more water throughout the day and using a humidifier at night will help to combat the drier weather which also dries out skin. When skin is dry, it looks tight and flaky. Be sure to stay hydrated to keep your skin looking its best.
