As the season’s change so does your skin! Even if the weather changes are mild in your region, they can still have a major impact on your face and body. So changing up your skincare routine for the holidays is very important! We have a few tips on what you should and shouldn’t do to get your skin ready for Christmas!
Tips To Get Skin Ready For Christmas
Exfoliating is a great way to prepare your skin for spending more time in dry, indoor environments. With a build up of dead surface cells, your skin can start to look dull and tired. So supporting the natural exfoliation process of your skin can help to renew and brighten your complexion.

Avoid Bar Soap
When your skin is producing less oil, you need to make sure that you are always using moisturising formulas. Soap leaves a layer on your skin and strips away your skin’s natural oils. From head to toe, opt for a soap-free formula.
Hydrate Your Skin
As it gets colder, we all, of course, find any way to keep warm, whether it’s with indoor heating or long hot showers. However, these can wreak havoc on your skin. In fact, those steaming hot showers you’re guilty of taking are actually a cardinal skin sin! But to remedy the damage that manufactured heat does, make sure to use a good serum, moisturiser and body lotion. Lock in your skin’s moisture, straight after you shower to leave it feeling silky smooth.

Always Carry Hand Cream
Having a good hand cream on you during the colder months is essential for a few reasons. First and foremost, it’s really important to wash your hands more often as we get into cold and flu season. However, the more you wash your hands, the more you are going to wash away the natural oils. Between regular hand washing and a drier environment, hand cream is essential.

Don’t Forget The Sunscreen
