Post-Holiday Skin Recovery
If your skin is crying for help following all the holiday celebrations, you’re not alone!
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with holiday festivities and all the indulgences that come with it; you deserve it after closing out another lap around the earth! That being said, it might be hard to ignore the toll alcohol, heavy meals, and not-so-perfect sleep can have on your skin.
So how exactly can you help your skin bounce back right in time to start accomplishing those New Year skin goals? Read on below!
HYDRATE & MOISTURIZE
We can’t say it enough: your skin is going to be deeply dehydrated after such festivities. Now more than ever, it’s time to guzzle up on that H2O!
A common recommendation is to drink six or eight 250 mL (8 fl oz) glasses of water or other fluid every day. Not only will it help to flush out any toxins, but will also help your skin get back on track and gain all the natural moisture it needs.
On that same note, it’s just as important to replenish from the outside by applying moisturizing ––like the Yonka Hydra+ serum––and creams that will lock in hydration. It’s also a great opportunity to reach for deeply hydrating masks, such as the Di Morelli Hydrating Face Sheet Mask that we absolutely adore!
PICK UP YOUR ROUTINE
Give your skin time to bounce back by reverting to your regular routine, where you balance festivities with healthy meals, getting a good night's sleep, and moving your body in order to flush out toxins and re energize yourself. This will give your skin the chance to recover and kick-start the natural healing process.
SWITCH IT UP (TEMPORARILY)
Drastic times call for drastic measures, which means it may be a good time to swap out a few steps in your routine for products that are better suited to what your skin currently needs.
For example, it may be a better idea to reach for a soft cleanser that doesn’t aggravate the skin and is packed with soothing and protecting ingredients, such as oat, aloe, hyaluronic acid, and Vitamin C.
With adequate care, red, splotched, blemished, or dry skin will usually come back to itself within one to two weeks.
