It’s almost the holiday season, which means lots of parties. Indulging in festive foods like cheese platters, desserts or cocktails is totally fine – after all, the holidays are here for you to unwind and enjoy! But too much of a good thing can’t always be good for you. Staying up late and not getting enough beauty sleep can stress your skin out, leading to a dull and tired-looking complexion.

How do you take care of your skin while juggling your fully booked social calendar? Here are some skin care tips to keep in mind:

Holidays are the perfect time for you to be a little extra. You can flaunt all the glitter and bold lip or eye makeup you want but remember to double cleanse otherwise you can end up with clogged pores and a new zit in the morning.

NEOGEN’s re:p Gentle Face Cleaning Remover Pads are perfect for removing heavy holiday makeup while keeping your skin moisturized. They’re super easy to use: simply swipe a pad across your face. You can also use these pads for your eye and lip makeup. 

With all the late nights, your skin is bound to look stressed. A simple and effective way to avoid this is to add a brightening face mask to your skin care routine for the perfect glow.

Check out Limese’s Face Mask Real Brightening & Glow Up Set. These charcoal sheet masks are formulated with naturally-derived ingredients, including neem leaf and aloe vera extract along with niacinamide and hyaluronic acid. Apply a sheet mask before applying your holiday makeup for an instant healthy glow!

For even better glowing skin, go for a facial at least a week or two before the holidays start. Your post-facial glow will last longer thanks to the deep exfoliation and facial massage. Don’t have time for a facial? Don’t fret, you can do an at-home facial or you can try massaging your face with a facial tool like this Crystal Rose Quartz Face Roller from Art Naturals.

To make sure your holiday makeup goes on smoothly and flawlessly, don’t forget to exfoliate! Do this the night before your party to ensure your pores are tightened and to draw out all the dirt and excess oil from your skin.

A great exfoliant is Isntree’s Clear Skin 8% AHA Essence. Since it’s formulated with 4% glycolic acid and 4% lactic acid, you won’t have to worry about a rough skin texture. The essence also features Morus alba root and Centella asiatica extract among its ingredients, so you can rely on it to unclog your pores while purifying and brightening skin.

The ideal party skin looks plump and hydrated and the easiest way to achieve that is to moisturize. Long nights can take a toll on your skin, so give it a much-needed moisture boost with the Hyaluronic Acid Intensive Cream from COSRX. Apply this cream before and after your party to ensure your skin is deeply moisturized. It also strengthens your skin’s moisture barrier and has a nice lightweight texture that works well under makeup.
