And since the festive season also means tons of selfies for the ‘gram, you need to bring your A-game to the table to look your absolute best.

01. Use chilled sheet masks

Sheet masks are a boon for beauty junkies like us! And here’s what you gotta do to make the most of your sheet mask this festive season — store it in the fridge and use it chilled. The science is simple here. Using a refrigerated sheet mask like the Pond’s Detoxing Sheet Mask With Vitamin B6 100% Bamboo Charcoal will soothe your skin and help get rid of puffiness too. With the goodness of real charcoal extracts, vitamin B6 and serum, this mask will detoxify your skin from within to make it clear and glowing in just 15 minutes! Glowing and calm skin, all at once? Sounds like the best of both worlds to us!


02. Try a witch hazel toner

Try a witch hazel toner

Yes, just because it’s festival time, doesn’t mean you give the CTM routine a miss! Now, to up your skincare game during this time, we suggest turning to a toner with witch hazel in it. This ingredient protects your skin from inflammation and irritation, tightens your pores and even prevents acne. So, try out the Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Facial Toner. This baddie-free toner is dermatologically tested, hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. With chamomile, pro-vitamin B5, witch hazel and allantoin in its formula, this toner soothes, hydrates and restores your skin’s natural pH levels and leaves no alkaline residues on it.


03. Stick to light and matte makeup

Stick to light and matte makeup

We’re sure you don’t plan on sporting a cakey, oily makeup look during the festive season, right? Well, we got a simple solution for you — swap the heavy foundations for CC creams and use concealers if you need more coverage. The constant sweating and heat can cause your makeup to look oily and greasy. Applying matte products can help you avoid this. Also, try going for a more natural and light makeup during this time to avoid that cakey look.


04. Use a lip scrub to smoothen your pout

Use a lip scrub to smoothen your pout

Just like the rest of your makeup, if you wish to rock your favourite lip colour this season then, you have to scrub your pout. Dry and flaky lips will make your lipsticks go on patchy. So, before applying your lip colour, scrub your lips and apply some lip balm to make your pout smooth and supple.


05. Don’t forget your mane

Don’t forget your mane

Last but not least, don’t forget about your locks! Before picking out hairstyles that you wish to rock this season, make sure your hair is ready to take on the heat styling and treatments. So, make sure you pamper your mane with a nice hair mask like the Dove Healthy Ritual For Strengthening Hair Mask at least twice a week this festive season. With oat milk and honey extracts in its formula, the mask works to strengthen your hair, make it softer, smoother and more manageable - basically everything you need to flaunt flawless mane this festive season!
