Did you know that after the holidays is the #1 time people will experience skin issues and breakouts? Some say it’s from stress while others note it’s because of the alcohol and food we consume, but no matter what the cause, you’re going to need a quick fix!
Now that the holidays are over, don’t let breakouts get you down. Here are some of the top tips to heal holiday breakouts quickly and regain your glowing skin for a fresh-faced 2020!
Wash Your Face
This may sound like simple advice because most of us wash our face morning and night anyway. What you don’t realize is that after the holidays, you may need to be using your oil cleanser even more.
Did you think about what happens to your skin when you stand over a boiling pot cooking all day long? Grease, heat, and other elements from your holiday activities can linger on your skin and cause breakouts. After the holidays, pay extra attention to the surroundings of your skin and wash accordingly. This will prevent breakouts and help your skin look flawless and glowing no matter how stressed out you are going back to work.
Watch What You Eat
It can be very tempting to drink unlimited wine and an array of unhealthy foods over Christmas and New Years, but it’s going to show up on your face as unwanted zits and breakouts. Now is the perfect time of year to practice moderation and if not for your body, do it for your skin.
If you are going to drink and eat freely, you can minimize the damage to your skin by drinking lots of water throughout the day and night. This will help keep your skin hydrated from the inside and clear away breakout-causing compounds. Also, try to opt for antioxidant-rich foods like fruits and veggies as you recover from the holidays to help support your skin from the inside out.
Nourish Your Skin
During the holidays you end up spending more time indoors with recycled air than you do outdoors in the fresh air. This can have your skin feeling congested and miserable.
Without fresh air, your skin will start to suffer and will require extra nutrients delivered to help it stay happy and healthy. Make sure you’re not skipping your Repair & Release Cream daily, even if your skin feels hydrated from the humidity of staying indoors. You can be tricked into thinking that you can cut back or skip moisturizing but in reality, its the beneficial ingredients that your skin really needs to glow. This will help you start your new year off with an amazing glow and no signs of post-holiday damage!
