Good Morning Ladies!
I hope you're all enjoying black Friday? Ahead of us we have the first real Christmas weekend ahead of us! I can't wait to go to Southbank Christmas Market and try out the Stollen and Mulled wines!
However, all that sugar and alcohol can reaaaaally take its toll on your skin over the Christmas period. The number of times I've got to Christmas day red and spotty is ridiculous. Over the last couple of years I've learnt a few tricks of how to look after it despite the Christmas party period giving it a beating!
My top tips are:
1.) Take off your makeup NO MATTER WHAT in the evenings. No excuses. Doesn't matter how tired you are or if its 5am make sure you at least grab a makeup wipe.
2.) Exfoliate with a light exfoliating cream wash in the mornings (I'm currently loving Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant). This will really get rid of any grease and dirt that you didn't manage to get rid of the night before. Follow with a light moisturizer.
3.) Try and drink a smoothie every day if possible! Those antioxidents will attack those pesky free radicals which wreak havoc on your skin! Make sure it is 100% fruit and not full of artificial flavorings and additives.
4.) Hide any signs of the night before with a primer under your foundation. It means that by the end of the day no tell tale red blotchy skin will be shining through!
Enjoy perfect skin this Christmas!!!
Lots of love
