Holiday Skincare Survival Tips

Our bank accounts aren’t the only thing that tend to suffer each year during the holiday season. Usually our health and beauty routines take a backseat amidst the fulfilling yet chaotic season. The daily holiday distractions such as a hectic work schedule, gift-giving, an over flow of party invites or family gatherings can potentially trigger a huge amount of stress on our bodies. One of the biggest undertakings that anxiety can cause is unhealthy skin. Yikes! Luckily we’ve got you covered with a few skincare tips by expert esthetician Heather Wilson who shared with us three key tips to achieve healthy, happy, winterized skin this holiday season.

Time to pump up the Vitamin C in your beauty routine. Wilson suggests, “Incorporating Vitamin C into your daily regime will help fight free radical damage that can otherwise cause fine lines and wrinkles, collagen damage, and dryness. In addition, Vitamin C helps protect the skin’s natural barrier which, when intact, maintains adequate hydration levels during the dry winter months.”

She also says, it’s important to utilize an exfoliation that is comprised of lactic acid or fruit enzyme ingredients. This not only helps keep the dead skin cells away but also increases healthy cell rejuvenation especially during the frigid weather months. Keep in mind, when it’s time to exfoliate, let’s be gentle on the skin, shall we?

Another important factor Ms. Wilson emphasizes is being cognitive of your skin’s hydration. If you suffer from oily skin, you’re in for a real treat because ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and herb based glycerin help penetrate H2O into the buried layers of the skins surface. As for drier skin types, not to worry because incorporating Rosehip or Argan natural oils into your beauty necessities creates ah-mazing anti-aging results!

One last stress-busting skin care technique is the brands Dead Sea Mud Mask, [literally] made from the Dead Sea with a combination of Organic Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Aloe Vera, Calendula Oil, and Hickory Bark Extract! It’s an intensified mood-brightening skin cleanser that helps reduce pores and serves as an essential facial moisturizer.
