Picture this. You’ve just attended your fourth holiday party for the season. There’s glitter everywhere, mascara stains on your pillow case, and you’ve found a rogue fake eyelash on your bathroom floor. Your skin is feeling it—it’s looking dry, dull and fatigued. All that heavy make-up and those late nights have started to take their toll.
We’ve decided to jump in and round up some holiday skincare tips so you can keep your skin in top condition:
Always—and we mean always—remove your make-up
Neglecting to remove your make-up, even for just one night, can wreak havoc on your skin. Sleeping in your makeup can result in unnecessary exposure to the free radicals in the environment, which the makeup holds on to—free radicals cause the breakdown of healthy collagen, which results in fine lines on the skin. Additionally, make-up can clog the pores while you sleep, resulting in the development of acne. No, thanks!
Follow your skincare routine
If you’re like us and you like to go all out with your make-up for the Holiday season with red lips, glitter and false eyelashes, then adhering to your skincare routine is paramount to making sure your skin stays hydrated and fresh.
It’s no good just using a make-up wipe. You must ensure you’re cleansing, toning and moisturizing as usual, even if it’s 2am and you’re more than ready for bed.
