It's the holidays season! While we love the holidays: The late nights, countless glasses of bubbles and holiday stress can wreak havoc on your skin. So, holiday skincare should mean a completely different skincare regime because of the change in your lifestyle over the holiday season. Here are our top tips for changing your holiday skincare regime this season.
Holiday Skin Care Tip 1: Carry eye serum for application before those after-work Christmas drinks
You're tired, you're working long hours and you're socialising like crazy. This holiday season, you're having a great time but your eyes give you away. Applying an eye serum with ceramides after work, as well as before bed, is key. A great eye serum adds hydration and plumps the delicate under-eye skin to help your eyes appear brighter. Plus, Samson & Charlie Ageless Eye Serum also contains hyaluronic acid which prevents transdermal water loss, so your eye area stays hydrated despite your lack of sleep and countless champagnes.
How to: Apply Ageless eye serum and let it dry within seconds. Next, pat on some concealer to rejuvenate tired eyes after a busy week. Then you're ready to head out to your Christmas drinks. Reapply your eye serum before bed after you've removed makeup.
Holiday Skincare Tip 2: Be strict with makeup removal at night by using a powerful cleansing oil
You make it home after yet another Christmas catch-up and you want to quickly wash your face and flop into bed, leaving makeup residue that clogs pores and leaves your skin dry. Great news! Removing makeup doesn't have to be a chore if you use a cleansing oil.
Cleansing oils bind to impurities and makeup particles quickly, so when you wash off the oil, you're washing off all your makeup. They work fast and don't require countless attempts to remove those party makeup layers. Plus, compared to harsh cleansers, cleansing oils leave your skin hydrated and soft.
How to: Pump some Hydrating Makeup Removing Cleansing Oil onto your hand and add some warm water. Then massage into your skin. You'll notice the cleansing oil turns delicately milky and feels baby-soft on your skin. Wet a microfibre makeup removing puff and wipe the cleansing oil away.
Holiday Skincare Tip 3: Use a Sheet Mask For Urgent Rejuvenation On Weekends
Do you feel like your skin is shouting SOS? If you're struggling with tired, dry skin from too many holiday champagnes, late nights and stressful work days, you're not alone. The best super-fast solution? A hydrating sheet mask fortified with super ingredients like hyaluronic acid, niacinamide B3 and cermides. While you sip your morning coffee on a Sunday, apply your mask and sit back while it works its magic.
How to: Exfoliate, cleanse and tone before applying if you can. Too busy? Cleanse quickly and dry your skin before popping the mask on. After 15 mins, massage in all the excess serum to maximise results.
So there you have it! Three handy tips for helping keep your skin glowing this holiday season. From eye serum to sheet masks, these handy tools can make all the difference to your skin these holidays.
