Prep Your Skin for a Holiday Glow

holiday glow

Winter's harsher elements can play havoc on our summer-bronzed radiance. Throw in the inevitable late nights during party season, and dehydrated skin thanks to central heating and a few too many drinks, and you could have a seriously stressed-out complexion on your hands. Here's how to prep your skin for a holiday glow.

1. Switch Cleanser

Help transition your skin into harsher climates by switching to a gentle, moisturizing cleanser.

2. Polish

Reveal radiant, brighter skin by exfoliating 2-3 times per week to buff away dull, dead skin cells. I adore Amber's Lumière de Vie® Volcanic Exfoliating Mask.

3. Hydrate

Moisturize twice a day to help cocoon your skin from the drying, irritating effects of cooler temperatures and indoor heating. Apply serum at night before a creamy moisturizer to wake up to noticeably more youthful, radiant skin. Use a jade roller daily to bring your skin back to life.

4. Drop the Temperature

Switch hot showers and baths for lukewarm ones to help prevent drying out the skin further.

5. More Hydration!

Apply a high-quality, indulgent facemask once a week to revive skin and help strengthen your skin's protective barrier.

6. Get a Facial

There are so many amazing facials available. Chemical peels combat fine lines and wrinkles while improving imperfections in your complexion. Problem skin? Book in for an anti-acne facial to purge your pores of breaking-causing nasties. Speak to your facialist to find the best treatment for your skin type.

7. Fake It!

The right facial tanner covers blemishes and evens out your skin tone. After exfoliating and moisturizing, apply a non-comedogenic face tan for a gorgeous, natural glow.
