Holidays can be stressful from food prep, travel plans, and finding that perfect outfit. Here are a few tips to help your skin look its best for the holiday season’s many festivities. The goal is for your skin to look stress-free, clear, and radiant!

Clean Regularly

Begin your morning on a good note by washing your skin. This helps your complexion stay breakout-free and preps your skin for your holiday makeup routine. Find a cleanser that cleans without drying it out.

Lip Balm

Remember to pack an extra lip balm if you will be away from home for the holidays. Travel can dry out your skin, especially flying, and lips often show the signs of dehydration first. Be sure to keep a hydrating lip balm on hand and apply it often to help moisturize your lips and keep them moist and supple for the colder, dry weather.

Primer with Benefits

Holiday parties can be lengthy, and most likely you are going to be spending more time with makeup on than usual. To be sure your skin looks flawless and your makeup stays in place, choose a primer that helps your makeup application, and also benefits your skin. 


During the festivities, remember alcohol can take a toll on your skin’s appearance. If you are going to drink a few extra cocktails, be responsible and drink extra water between drinks to stay hydrated. Don’t forget to hydrate your skin with a well-formulated moisturizer. The season comes with brutal cold and harsh winds that can dry out your skin quickly. Find a moisturizer for hydration and added sun protection.

Remove Makeup

No matter how late it is or how tired you are, it is a MUST to take off your makeup. Be prepared by leaving a bottle of makeup remover and facial moisturizer by your bed if that will help motivate you. When it comes time to crawl in bed and crash, all you have to do is give your face a few swipes, and it is finished. Use cleansing water that will help soothe your skin while removing all of your makeup.

Use Vitamin C

A good way to boost your skin’s radiance during the holiday season is to incorporate a vitamin C serum into your daily routine. A serum with vitamin C and magnesium may help energize your complexion. 


The morning after your party or get-together, use a face mask to detoxify. Use a mask to reduce the look of enlarged pores and draw out the toxins from the surface of your skin.
