At Nourish London, we know all too well the negative effects that late nights and stress can have on the skin.
Here are our top 10 tips on how to achieve a healthy and radiant glow this Festive Season.
1. Cleanse, Cleanse, Cleanse!
Pollution can have a major effect on our skin. To reduce the potential for damage, cleansing is possibly the most important element of any daily skin care routine, as it removes airborne pollutants. Choose carefully and ensure you select a gentle cleanser, which does not damage the fragile acid mantle layer of the skin. This is your skin’s natural defence against pollutants.
Gentle exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin to prevent it from looking lacklustre and dull. Choose a gentle non-abrasive exfoliator to achieve a natural radiance without stripping the skin.
3. Drink Plenty of Water
Make sure that you drink at least 6-8 glasses of water a day to keep your skin hydrated.
4. Use a Facial Serum
A facial serum is a crucial step in any skincare routine. Prep your skin with a super hydrating facial serum for a radiant complexion.
5. Allow Your Skin to Breathe
If you have some ‘me time’ over the festive period, try going make-up free for a day to give your skin chance to breathe and recover.
6. Use a Face Mask
For an instant moisture boost, revive tired, dull and dry skin with a face mask. Leave on overnight for an intensive skincare treat.
7. Get Plenty of Beauty Sleep
It is important that you catch up on your beauty sleep, aim for 7 - 8 hours of sleep per night. Not enough sleep can affect your complexion, which can cause stress and breakouts.
8. Invest in an Eye Cream
The skin around your eyes is the thinnest and shows the first signs of aging. Make sure you invest in a good eye cream.
9. Don't Forget Your Neck
Your beauty regime does not just stop at your face, make sure you pay special attention to your neck. Good skincare for the neck means more than just extending the use of a facial moisturiser; ingredients specifically designed to help the skin on the neck are required.
10. Sparkle and Shimmer
Add a hint of sparkle and shimmer to your complexion with a facial highlighter for a beautiful radiant glow.
