December is the official party month of the year and as you gear up for the last party of the year and decade, you want to look your absolute best. Yes, there’s makeup to take care of it, but you also need to prepare your skin to look its glowing best.
Now, we don’t have a lot of time to follow routines, but you can still incorporate a few habits that will ensure great skin by New Year’s Eve. Here’s what you can do to so your skin looks picture perfect.
Sweat it out
You probably weren’t expecting exercise to be on this list, but it is important; we will tell you how. Holiday season is about lazing around, overeating and skipping all forms of physical activity. But when you work out, your skin releases a lot of toxins, giving it a healthy glow naturally. It also increases blood circulation and boosts your complexion. If you can’t drag yourself to the gym, a brisk walk or jog can also do the trick.
Treat your skin with a mask
Winters can be quite harsh for your skin and more often than not all it takes is some moisturising to bring the glow back. The quickest and easiest way to add a surge of moisture into your skin is by using a mask, you can prepare a DIY mask using natural ingredients or even use a store-bought sheet mask to instantly nourish your skin from within. I swear by the Simple Kind To Skin Rich Moisture Sheet Mask.
If you haven’t exfoliated your skin in a week or two, it’s time to do so right away! You can use a ground coffee, olive and sugar scrub to gently massage the skin and get rid of dead skin cells. While you are at it, give your body an exfoliation session too. This will remove dryness and leave your skin smooth and glowing.
Internal hydration is as essential as external, while you are constantly moisturising your face and hands, it is also important to drink enough water too. This will flush out toxins from the body and help combat dry skin. Have fresh fruit juices and a bowl of fresh cut fruits every day.
Catch up on some sleep
You don’t want to walk into the party with panda eyes now do you? Stick to your regular sleeping schedule before the party to look fresh and young. Also, green tea bags or slices of cucumber really work. You should try them!
