Celebrating the holidays is going to be different this year. Whether you plan on having a small gathering or a Zoom party with friends and loved ones, you can still enjoy the seasonal festivities.

Holidays can be stressful too, which can affect your skin. With some days to go before all the festivities begin, you still have time to prepare your skin care routine. Here are some tips to get through the holidays with healthy and glowing skin: 

It may be the busiest time of the year, but it’s important to maintain a skin care routine. 

Feel free to adjust your routine depending on how your skin feels. Keep it simple if you’re tired or don’t have enough time for complicated steps. Remember to stick to the basics and make sure you have the following: a cleansing oil or balm, facial cleanser, toner, moisturizer and sunscreen.  

Have you already prepared your holiday makeup looks? Whether you’re planning to get in the seasonal spirit with bold and sparkly makeup looks or considering a minimalist approach, don’t forget to remove it all by the end of the day.

Double cleansing is essential to keep your skin healthy. The first step of your routine should include a cleansing oil or cleansing balm. To remove stubborn eye or lip makeup, opt for an eye and lip makeup remover that gently melts away bold lipstick and shimmer eye shadow.

Do you have a hard time drinking enough water during the holidays? Another way to keep your complexion hydrated is with a cream mask.

Must-try cream masks:

If you struggle to get enough beauty sleep during the holidays, treat yourself to a serum packed with nourishing ingredients like antioxidants, ceramides and niacinamide. These ingredients help keep your skin barrier strong and healthy. Even if you’re not getting enough shut-eye, at least your skin won’t suffer as much thanks to this addition to your routine.

Serums to add to your routine: 

The combination of stress and cold weather can make skin feel tight or dry. Luckily, face mists help replenish your skin with all the moisture it needs, so keep one in your bag.

We’re likely to experience stressful moments during the holidays, and these occasions can make you break out more. To keep your skin in check during the festive season, try to schedule in some time for yourself whenever you can.

Taking a hot bath or giving yourself a face massage are great ways to de-stress and relieve tension. If you prefer using beauty tools to massage your skin, try a face roller or a gua sha.
