The Christmas season is generally a busy time for most, with parties, fun with friends and family and lots of festive cheer. However, it can also be a stressful time; we can often become exhausted, stressed and run down. This can all catch up on us, and our skin can be one of the first things to suffer. Here’s your Christmas skincare routine for healthy skin this year.
Maintaining your skincare routine can make a big difference in the overall health of your skin. At this time of the year, we may be socialising more, eating more rich food and drinking more alcohol than usual. Your skin might be more prone to blemishes if it’s congested, and one way of minimising this is to cleanse your skin every night. This means no sleeping in your makeup, no matter how late a night it might be!
The VITAL C Hydrating Facial Cleanser breaks down makeup, removing impurities and nourishing the skin. During the colder months, it’s essential to use a cleanser that won’t strip your skin, and this one can be used by all skin types, even those with sensitive skin. It contains essential antioxidants and vitamins and leaves the skin soft, nourished and bright.
Use a serum for your skin concern
After cleansing, choose a serum for your specific skin concern. AGELESS Total Pure Hyaluronic Filler is ideal for maximum hydration as it contains six forms of hyaluronic acid to hydrate topically and at a deeper level. It smooths and softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, plumping the skin from within.
If dull skin is your main concern, try the ILUMA intense brightening serum. It reduces the appearance of pigmentation and dark spots, helping to even out and brighten the complexion. The soothing formula is suitable for sun-damaged, acne-marked and redness-prone sensitive skin.
For those whose skin feels unbalanced, dehydrated or irritated, use the ORMEDIC balancing antioxidant serum morning and evening. It strengthens the skin’s defenses against damage thanks to antioxidants Kakadu plum and beetroot extract, restoring its glow. Organic grape water and hyaluronic acid restore balance while hydrating the skin too.
Be sure to lock in your serum of choice with a cream like VITAL C hydrating repair crème. Hyaluronic acid, ceramides and vitamins hydrate, nourish and soothe the skin. It also supports the skin’s elasticity and firmness, fighting the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Exercising your skin regularly can help minimise blemishes, keeping your skin clear, smooth and bright. A build-up of dead skin cells can leave your skin looking dull, and it can clog your pores, leading to breakouts.
Using the ILUMA intense brightening exfoliating cleanser regularly will ensure that impurities are swept away and that your skin is brighter and more refined. The formula contains a mushroom-derived enzyme, bamboo spheres and smart-sensing beads to gently exfoliate the skin without stripping it.
