The season to have fun, make memories, and party till dawn is almost here. But, if your holiday season is full of activities, keep in mind that they can take a toll on your skin, especially your face. Below are tips to help keep your face looking vibrant, nourished, and damage-free.
MedSpa in Wilmington NC: Skin Care Tips
Remove make-up before you sleep. You’ve come home from a party late at night, and you’re tipsy – in this situation, skin care is a tricky thing to do or even remember. If you can’t go all in and cleanse thoroughly, use a make-up remover or a wet towel to wipe off make-up. A make-up removing towelette is terrific for a quick wash. Some of these towelettes are infused with vitamins and aloe to soothe and moisturize your skin.
Hydrate both internally and externally – if you’ve been out drinking, remember that alcohol dehydrates your body, including the skin. If your skin gets dehydrated, it will show. Your pores become more noticeable and the fine lines more prominent. So drink water during your night out and keep your body hydrated on the inside. While this won’t have an immediate effect on your skin the next day, you can use a rejuvenating hydrating cream or lotion on your skin for a quick hydrating fix.
Ice your face. Alcohol can cause redness by dilating the blood vessels. To reduce this, put an ice-cold compress on the red area for a few minutes. Ice is simply a quick fix, but remember, prolonged drinking can cause permanent skin damage and redness to your face.
Have a skin exfoliator at home and use it for a gentle scrub when you feel like your skin is overworked. The exfoliating scrub removes the alcohol-damaged skin cells and the top layer of the dead skin cells. In addition, regular exfoliation allows your moisturizer to be more effective.
Dirty make-up brushes carry oil, bacteria, and dirt, leading to acne breakouts. Keep all your make-up tools and brushes clean to avoid adding bacteria to your face.
It might seem obvious, but it’s essential for keeping that dewy, glowing skin we all love. Dry skin looks dull, and using hydrating agents helps restore the glow. In addition, after doing all the damage control you can on your skin, give your face a final spritz of moisture using a hydrating spray.
