Radiant skin is achievable with just a few simple routines
31 Dec 2016
It’s the last of the festive season, and your skin has taken an absolute beating. Thanks to loads of over indulging your skin will land up looking dull and tired. However, you can restore a radiant skin despite the toll all the sugary food and alcohol has taken.
Here are our top tips on how to keep your complexion looking radiant no matter what.
Radiant skin calls for a regime
Keep your skincare routine simple
Although the extreme weather conditions tend to make you either want to avoid creams (Southern Hemisphere) or slather on the products (Northern Hemisphere), neither is ideal. The best route is to keep it simple! Make sure to cleanse, tone and moisturise every day and exfoliate once a week for an easy and manageable regime.
Hydrate from within
During the festive period, it’s easy to indulge in everything from sweet and salty foods to alcohol. These foods tend to dry out your skin and can lead to accelerated ageing, dehydration and the formation of fine lines. Drink a minimum of eight glasses of water a day to give your complexion a healthy boost!
Boost your skin weekly
Take the time to give your skin a helping hand, by just adding a ‘booster’ such as a mask, serum or a rejuvenating facial.
A balanced diet will not only help you fight off the bugs and colds. But it also boosts the skin resulting in a healthy and glowing complexion.
Cleanse twice daily
No matter how late the night is, cleanse your skin. Cleansing is important to rid your skin of dirt and bacteria. Avoid clogging up pores with the day’s dirt which results in a dull complexion and breakouts.
Make time for beauty sleep
The party season can mean lots of late nights, but try to get at least eight hours of sleep as this not only keeps your body well-rested but also allows skin to rejuvenate itself naturally.
