With the holiday season kicking into full swing, you’re likely to find your schedule packed with activities. From organising a get-together with your friends to Christmas shopping, the festive season is exciting yet certainly stressful at times.
While stress is a normal part of our lives, it definitely isn’t friendly to our skin. Stress can trigger breakouts and aggravate any existing skin concerns that you have.
However, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a healthy holiday glow! Follow our tips below to keep your skin looking clear and radiant for the holiday season.
1. Cleanse your skin diligently
Be sure to start your day with a good cleanse every morning. This ensures that you get rid of any overnight sebum buildup, so you can maintain a blemish-free complexion. Cleansing also preps your skin for your festive makeup looks that follow.
Be sure to pick a cleanser that’s suitable for your skin type. As a general rule, choose one that thoroughly cleanses your skin without drying it out.
2. Choose a primer with skin benefits
Amidst all the holiday festivities and plans, you’re likely to spend longer hours wearing makeup than usual. To make sure that your makeup stays in place throughout all the action, be sure to use a primer that provides you with better makeup application.
For an added benefit, choose a primer that has beneficial ingredients for your skin as well. This helps to keep your complexion as clear as possible despite the long hours of heavy makeup.
3. Remove your makeup
There’s one skincare rule you absolutely must follow – remove your makeup at the end of the day, no matter what time it is or how tired you are. Sleeping with your makeup on will cause your pores to be clogged from all the dirt and dead skin cells that you didn’t remove. This can lead to a massive breakout soon after.
If you know that you’ll be having late nights, plan ahead and place a bottle of micellar water and some cotton pads by your bedside table. This way, you can simply reach for them and give your face a few wipes right before hitting the hay.
4. Detox your skin
After long nights of holiday get-togethers or parties, treat your skin to a detox to unclog your pores and renew your skin’s health. You can this at home by using a clay mask that’s packed with detoxifying and purifying ingredients. Clay masks are excellent when it comes to pulling impurities and excess oil out of the top layers of your skin.
If you want a deeper detox, a facial can do the job! A facial treatment penetrates your pores more deeply than skincare products do, to thoroughly remove impurities from your skin. It also includes a face massage to help improve your blood circulation!

You can also complement the session with light infusion ampoule therapy and vitamin treatment to give your tired skin the nourishment it needs.
5. Stay hydrated
Festive parties provide the perfect opportunity to indulge in a few extra drinks, but alcohol can mess up the appearance of your skin. Sip on your drinks responsibly and be sure to drink water in between your cocktails or wine.
Additionally, don’t forget to hydrate your skin on the surface as well. Apply a well-formulated moisturiser that works for your skin.
If you have oily skin, you’ll want to go for a lightweight gel moisturiser. If your skin is more on the dry side, a heavier cream will work well to keep your skin feeling supple.
6. Add some vitamin C
Apart from preventing you from catching a cold during the rainy season, Vitamin C is also a popular skincare ingredient to energise your complexion. It’s a powerful antioxidant that targets an array of skin concerns, from fine lines to hyperpigmentation.
Incorporate a vitamin C serum into your daily routine to boost your skin’s radiance and fight dull, fatigued skin during the festive season.
Showing your skin some extra TLC during the holidays is essential to beating fatigue and maintaining its radiant glow. In addition to these skincare tips, regular facial treatments can make a world of difference when it comes to taking care of your skin’s health.
