The festive season is upon us, so it’s time to start prepping! That selfie-perfect skin isn’t going to make itself happen. Now we know you’re strapped for time and are probably wondering how to sneak salon visits into your lunch hour. Stop already! Don’t waste your time and money on expensive facials and whatnot when you can simply do-it-yourself. Take a look at our easy-peasy guide to the festive glow that will turn every girl green.
You’ve probably heard this one before, but we feel we need to say it again. The first and most important step to great skin is to keep hydrated throughout the day. So get yourself a water bottle, carry it with you wherever you go and drink away. You’re also going to need a shower gel that locks in the moisture and prevents your skin from drying out.
Proper prepping of your skin begins with exfoliation. Use a scrub that is gentle on the skin to remove dry and flaky skin. Our tip: Pick an organic body scrub that won’t harm your skin or cause an allergic reaction.
If you hate the thought of reapplying a face cream through the day, we feel you. And we have just the thing you need. A face mist hydrates your skin and leaves you feeling fresh. Perfect for those post-work festive get-togethers.
Not yet gotten rid of your summer tan? An ayurvedic anti-tan oil is the perfect solution. Buy a product that contains liquorice, cedarwod, lemon or tomato extracts as they are known for naturally removing tan, leaving you with brighter-looking skin.
The constant heat and fluctuating temperatures lead to the hyperactivity of the sweat and sebaceous glands leading to oily skin. To keep this under control, use a cleanser and toner on a daily basis.
Ayurvedic and organic facial masks smooth out the lines and wrinkles and help tighten your skin. Use a massage oil to get the blood rushing to your face before you apply a face mask. Leave it on for 15 minutes and wash it off! You’ll love the way you look.
