Holiday parties can do a number on skin. Those endless platters of sweet treats, festive cocktails, late nights and general air of indulgence and excess can result in a complexion that's dull and dry.
You can help get your skin back to its dazzling self with a detox, however. Here are some ways you can help revive and rejuvenate your complexion during the holiday season:
Winter air is already drying, but add in the dehydrating effects of alcohol and sugar and you've got a recipe for itchiness and flaking. Replenish and protect your skin's moisture reserves with ulta-nourishing creams and lotions that also re-balance your complexion. The ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream is a great choice because it utilizes your body's peak detoxing time while you sleep. Make a habit of applying after your return home from a holiday party and before you hit the sack - no matter how late it is - and you can wake up the next day looking like you got a few extra hours of shut-eye.
Hydration is everything when it comes to regaining a glowing complexion during the busy winter season. Make sure you drink lots of water throughout the day, at a party and before you go to bed. Downing a tall glass of water first thing in the morning can help rev up your system and get your blood flowing - try adding a squeeze of lemon or lime to your water for an extra refreshing burst of flavor.
Soothe skin with nutrients
After a late night, a nutrient-packed serum can give a boost to your complexion. The ELEMIS Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm contains a powerful vitamin complex that can help skin look more luminous, making it the perfect antidote to tired, dull skin during the holiday season.
