The holiday season is upon us which means it is time to really get our skin to sparkle!!  It's tough to stay regimented while juggling holiday parties, events, and general seasonal stress!  But here are some quick and easy tips to get your skin to SHINE this holiday!!

 

Sip your way to Hydrated Skin:

Now that the weather is a bit chillier, we don't crave an ice cold glass of water as frequently as we may have during the warmer months.  Always keep a water bottle near by and remind yourself to take frequent sips throughout the day.  Think you will have trouble remembering?  Set up a timer on  your phone for a sip every 15 minutes!  You'll soon make it a habit!  

 

Take a Break From Makeup:

The less makeup you wear the better!  Save those cat-eyes for the holiday parties, but keep daily make up simple.  Think just about the basics- a tinted sunscreen and lip gloss go a long way.  But if you are feeling like you need a little bit of color- pick up a bronzer for a light dusting of sun-kissed skin!  Going make up free will help rebalance the skin.  This way, when it's really time to get glam, your skin will be ready to perform!

 

Don't Forget About Your Skincare/Selfcare Routine:

The days are shorter and colder- the draw of a cozy bed is stronger!  But don't be tempted to go to bed without taking care of your skin.  Always cleanse with a creamy, hydrating cleanser- this is even more important during these cold months when skin tends to dry out.  Try this Daily Detox Exfoliating Cleanser.  Be sure to use a toner to help clarify the skin.  Add a hard-working serum, like Purity of Elements Radiance Face Serum.  The final touch should be a light, quick absorbing moisturizer- nothing too thick.  Try this Age Defying Moisturizer.  Still feel like your skin needs more hydration?  Try double moisturizing.  It's easy.  Moisturize, wait one minute, reapply a second layer.  Done!
