The holiday party invites are offically in the post and the season for celebration is upon us!  You still have time to dust off your skincare routine to get that holiday glow!  Try these skincare tips before your next soiree!

Leading Up to The Party!

Hydrate for the Holiday:

This is a big one for us at Purity of Elements.  Skincare products are essential, but so is hydrating your body from the inside out.  Sip water throughout the day and keep a water bottle close for on-the-go hydration.  Bored of plain old water?  Try adding lemon (which has plenty of health benefits on its own).  Opt for tea and hydrating drinks over sugary beverages.  And if you really need to jazz up your water intake, stay inspired with a water bottle you can get excited about like a trendy and eco-conscious S'Well Bottle. (Bonus tip: Set up a "hydration station" next to your bed with a bottle of water, hand lotion and body creams.  Make it a habit to hydrate before bedtime)!  

Load up on Fruits and Veggies:

As the saying goes, "you are what you eat"!  It's always a goal to eat well, however, it can be tough to stay on track.  Dedicating yourself to a healthy diet rich with fruits and vegetables will have an immediate impact on your skin.  Avoid sugary carbs and dairy that may contribute to inflammation and acne and swap out for fruits, veggies, and high-fiber foods!

Get to the Gym:

We can't promise that you'll be able to squeeze into that LBD, but we can guarantee that squeezing in a few sweat sessions before your soiree will help give your skin a natural glow.  Exercise helps increase your circulation which contributes to detoxification and gives your skin a beautiful radiance!  It will also boost your holiday cheer!  Strenuous exercise releases pleasure-inducing endorphins!  That's always a plus!

Dry Brush For Dewy Skin:

If you haven't already, you must integrate drybrushing into your selfcare routine.  It's a simple step in enhancing your skin's natural glow and will help stimulate the lymphatic system which detoxifes the body- ridding your skin of toxins and impurities that could compromise your skin's radiance!  Check out our Body Detox Kit which includes our Natural Sisal Dry Brush along with an extra gift to help you cleanse your way to radiance!

Get Serious About Your Skincare:

It doesn't take long to see the benefits of a healthy skincare routine (especially if you are using our Radiance Face Serum).   At the start of the week, try out a treatment mask that will offer a natural exfoliation- like a clay-based mask.  Clearing away dead skin will ensure that your skincare products can work their best!  Our favorite- Purity of Elements Pore-Minimizing Clay Mask.  Dedicate yourself to giving your skin the attention it deserves every night.  Look for hydrating, creamy cleansers versus over-drying gel-based cleansers.  Our pick, Purity of Elements Daily Detox Exfoliating Cleanser.  Find a toner that will help clarify and clear up any congestion you are experiencing on your skin.  Seek out a serum with concentrated ingredients to repair and restore balance (did we mention our Radiance Face Serum?).  And finally, buffer your skin with a light moisturizer like our Anti-Aging Moisturizer

 

The Day Of The Party:

Exfoliate to Reveal that Glow:

On the night of the party, your only skincare "to do" is to reveal that cultivated glow!  Sloughing away dull, dry skin will reveal the healthy, dewy skin below the surface- giving you a holiday radiance. Stay hydrated to maintain your skin's fullness. Cleanse and moisturize for a dewy base and apply your very best holiday glam look!
