How To Bring Your Post-Christmas Skin Back To Life

Tis’ the season to overindulge in all the food groups and treats that we spend the rest of the year trying to avoid (which ultimately increases our cravings for them even more – oops), but unfortunately for us, our skin isn’t quite as in love with chocolate, cheese and cocktails as we are. So, if your skin is proving to be unhappy with your dietary choices and is looking a little worse for wear, keep scrolling for tips on how to cheer it up and get it looking back to normal after the holiday season!

You are what you eat

As inconvenient as it is, we really are what we eat, so before you reach for every and any detoxifying skincare product you can get your hands on, you really do need to rein in on the 24/7 indulgent diet that you’ve enjoyed throughout Christmas time! Try to get your plates looking more rainbow-like than pure beige, and your skin will thank you for it.

Antioxidant-rich skincare

 If your skin is looking a little inflamed and puffy, the likely culprit is major sugar consumption which, let’s be honest, is pretty hard to avoid at Christmas – we’re not judging. Luckily, there’s a skincare ingredient that has the ability to soothe inflamed skin and get it looking back to normal pretty quickly – antioxidants. They come in so many different forms, but looking for and using aloe vera, vitamin E or green tea based skincare products will work well as they’re all ingredients high in antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties that will help with puffiness.

Hydrating masks are your best friend

 Late nights, alcohol, and cold weather can seriously dehydrate the skin, so amping up our hydration levels post-Christmas is essential. Sheet masks are particularly good for doing this as they’re soaked in hydrating serums and really force your skin to soak it all up as the sheet creates a barrier over your skin to trap moisture in. A collagen-boosting mask wouldn’t go amiss here, as high sugar consumption levels accelerate the glycation process, which is basically a fancy term for the collagen breaking down in the skin! 

At-home facial massage

 To eliminate toxins an stimulate the lymphatic system, try dedicating 10-15 minutes to massaging your face with upward motions with an oil or cleansing balm.

How do you like to soothe and treat your skin once the party season is over? Let us know!
