Did you know that November and December are some of the hardest months on your skin? Besides the cold air which is constantly making our skin dyer than normal, the holiday season brings tons of other risks to the health of your skin.
How can you keep your skin happy over the holidays without suffering from the post-turkey breakouts? Here’s what you need to know…
Watch What You Eat
One of the best parts of the holidays are endless appetizers and delicious turkey, but some holiday foods can take a toll on your skin. Foods like turkey are really amazing for skin because it contains amino acids as well as zinc, which happens to be one of the best things for your skin. Even pumpkin (mmm..pumpkin pie!) is a great option because it contains plant pigments called carotenoids which can help neutralize free radicals in your skin and help fight damage!
Some foods to steer clear of are starchy carbs like cornbread which can cause breakouts and skin irritation. Dairy dishes like mac and cheese should also be avoided because of the milk and cheese contents. Dermatologists all agree that consumption of dairy can disrupt the skin and lead to breakouts.
Wash Your Face
Between drinking, eating, and your holiday glam look, it is absolutely essential that you’re never skipping a face wash over the holidays. When you eat and drink foods that aren’t necessarily good for you, your skin will sweat out toxins and if not properly washed, will lead to breakouts.
Washing your face twice a day with your Lavender Oil Cleanser won’t just help minimize the damage from eating and drinking but it will also help balance your skin’s hydration and pH levels. Nothing is worse than dry skin that shows wrinkles and flakes, so using an oil cleanser will help provide a serious dose of hydration over the holidays. Not only will your skin feel better, but it will also help your holiday makeup look even better!
Take Care of Your Eyes
The holiday season can be one of the busiest and getting burnt out is inevitable. From visiting in-laws to staying up late to cook for friends and family, your skin is going to end up looking more tired than usual. One of the areas that suffer the most is your eyes because your exhaustion will show up as eye bags and dark circles.
Skip looking tired this holiday season by using your Eye Recover Serum every day! With regular use it will help manage dark circles, brighten the eye area, and plump skin to help mask wrinkles and lines. No matter how much or how little sleep you get this holiday season, your Eye Recovery Serum will have you looking rested and relaxed, no matter how hectic the holidays get!
