Christmas Skincare Survival Guide

The Party Season is upon us, bringing the perfect excuse to indulge in our favourite foods and drink. However, too much indulgence can have a negative effect on your skin, leaving it looking dull and tired.  Here’s our tips on how to keep your complexion looking radiant throughout the festive season.

Stay Hydrated - During the festive period it's easy to indulge in salty foods and alcohol, but these dry out your skin and lead to fine lines. Make sure you drink plenty of water each day to give your complexion a healthy boost ahead of all your parties.

Cleanse your skin properly - Whether you're trying a new make-up look or simply finding yourself getting home late at night, it's important to cleanse your skin. If you find you’re too tired when you get home, Stone Crop Cleansing Oil will help cleanse and remove make-up so you can get to bed knowing you’re not clogging your pores!

Give your skin a boost – The morning after the night before can leave skin looking red and blotchy. Give your skin a helping hand to a calmer, brighter complexion by using an exfoliator followed by a double dose of hydration to lock in moisture.  After cleansing, use an exfoliator like Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant with lactic and salicylic acid to gently remove dead skin cells, followed by a spritz of Stone Crop Hydrating Mist and finish with Arctic Berry Peptide Radiance Cream to hydrate and leave you with a luminous complexion.

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.  If you do find yourself short of sleep, try a cold compress over the eyes followed by Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream to brighten the eye area and reduce under eye bags.

Get some fresh air – a good walk in the fresh air will get the circulation going, ensuring that vital nutrients get to where they need to be. A walk outside lifts the mood and gives you a natural glow. Exercise is essential for healthy skin and a healthy mind.
