4 Steps to Glowing Holiday Skin

The holiday season brings with it joy and excitement, but we all secretly grow increasingly anxious as it approaches. You could be heading back to your hometown to visit with loved ones and old friends, which means seeing many people you haven’t seen in quite a while.

Of course, you want to look your best and to make the most of every photo-op these holidays, so here are four easy steps to get beautiful, glowing skin:

1.     Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

The weather in winter can do a lot of damage to your skin. Moving from the outside cold into your warm home or office can seriously dry out your skin and give you an unattractive, tired look.

Your skin tends to hold more moisture in spring and summer, and although you won’t need as much protection from the sun in winter, make sure your skin is always adequately hydrated. Avoid a greasy look by using a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer—even better, one with an SPF of at least 15, which blocks 94% of the sun’s UVB rays.

2.     Exfoliate Weekly

Harsh winter weather can damage your skin, giving it a weathered appearance. Exfoliating is an essential step in your process of getting glowing holiday-ready skin. Make time to buff away dead skin and unblock pores with a gentle exfoliating cleanser. Adding exfoliation into your weekly beauty routine will reveal the vibrant skin underneath.

Should you have extra dry and rough skin, exfoliating 2—3 times a week could be the perfect remedy, leaving you with soft and glowing holiday skin.

3.     Skip the Hot Shower

You might love those long, hot showers on a cold winter’s eve, but unfortunately, this could be stripping your skin of its natural oils, leaving you with dry and uneven skin. To help get that glowing holiday skin, skip the long shower and shorten it with a warm or even cool shower if you can tolerate it. Cold water will improve circulation and leave your hair looking shiny and healthy too.

Incorporate this simple switch into your beauty regime, and before you know it, you will have holiday-ready glowing skin and improved vitality.
