I’d like to wish all our readers a Happy New Year and hope your holiday was one of rest and relaxation, good food and even better company!
After a few weeks of putting your feet up, indulging in the good stuff (we aren’t judging!) and taking a break from work, getting back into the swing of things can be a bit of a challenge. The same is true about your skin.
You may already follow a strict natural skincare routine, but it may have fallen by the wayside a bit over the holidays. Late nights, travel, rich food and alcohol all take their toll on your skin, and while you may be feeling rested internally, externally your skin may be looking a little dull.
Don’t let less than glowing skin dull your shine though! By following these simple skin care tips, you’ll quite literally slough away the effects of the holiday season on your skin to reveal dewy soft, vibrant and youthful skin quicker than you can say Happy New Year!
The first step in your quest to achieve that glowing skin we all lust after is to exfoliate. A good exfoliation will help to slough off dead skin cells that may be contributing to a dull complexion, dry skin and clogged pores. You may find that all your skin care woes simply melt away after this important step!
After the holidays, your skin deserves some extra TLC so we are going to recommend our luxurious Lemon Tart Exfoliating Mask for a real skin treat. Jojoba beads help to dissolve impurities while still maintaining your skin’s delicate moisture balance while antioxidant vitamins A, C and E fight off free radicals and visibly brighten and even skin tone and texture. So set aside 15 minutes, treat yourself to a glass of red or a good book, and relax while this mask works its magic!
Spritz Me Up
Before you dive into applying your various lotions and potions, the next step in your routine is going to be a spritz of toner. Many people underestimate the power of a good toner, but a toner helps to soothe and nourish the skin, balance pH levels and allow for better absorption of products you apply after. Our Rose Hydrating Toner/Mist will instantly help to uplift your spirits and calm your mind thanks to its gorgeous subtle scent of Bulgarian rose.
Lock In Your Serum
Now your skin is perfectly prepped and primed for your serum and lotion. We’ll keep the bright theme going here by recommending our Vitamin C Brightening Serum. You can’t go wrong with Vitamin C, and everyone can benefit from its potent antioxidant properties. Vitamin C can help brighten and even skin tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for glowing, plump and clear skin!
Next, be sure to lock in your serum with a versatile moisturizer that is luxuriously creamy yet lightweight and ideal for everyday use for dry, sensitive, and mature skin types. Our Ultra Hydrating Facial Cream will get the job done thanks to soothing and hydrating ingredients such as aloe, coconut and jojoba, while anti-aging powerhouses DMAE and MSM help fight the signs of aging and leave your skin silky soft to the touch.
