How will you get the glow this Christmas?

How will you get the glow this Christmas?

For some, Christmas can result in over indulgence with dining out and late nights. This will play havoc on your skin, causing possible dryness, reddening, dark circles and even acne.

It's therefore important to act now and begin your Christmas skincare regime so you can enjoy the festivities carefree and safe in the knowledge that your skin will remain fresh, rejuvenated and healthy looking.

My 3 top tips for maintaining the Christmas Glow are:

Exfoliate. Don't be afraid to exfoliate your skin during winter. I recommend no more than once a week using a standard exfoliator. Exfoliating will maintain a fresh winter glow to your skin and remove any dead skin cells that may have accumulated due to your longer Christmas nights.

Moisturise. Locking in moisture is critical during winter months as your skin will naturally experience sudden temperature changes by moving outdoors - which can dry the skin dramatically. So ensuring skin moisture wherever you go is essential. Slathering your body with body butter also acts as a barrier for any wintry cold blasts.

H2O overload! Drinking water not only fights the morning after Christmas effect but is a simple way of keeping the skin cells hydrated. This will help the skin to remain plump, smooth and will flush out any toxins which can be a cause of acne. Why not try hot water, lemon and ginger which is also perfect for calming the bowels and digestive system. Remember, your skin can be an indicator of your lifestyle and Christmas is no different!
