6 ways to keep your skin glowing during the hectic holiday season 

As a true reflection of the body, the skin is particularly stressed during holidays. From the pressure of finding the right present for everyone on your list to indulging in all the sweets, cocktails, and heavy meals, the holidays can be hard on your skin. The good news is that following the correct measures will help prevent your skin from breaking out or losing its radiance. Here are our best tips to help your skin through the holiday season. 

  1. Gently cleanse and Moisturize your skin Regularly

Regardless of the season, skin is subject to all sorts of impurities. It is therefore essential to clean it regularly. But be careful, you must clean your face and body with specific care products that gently cleanse the skin without dehydrating it. 

To clean your skin properly, we strongly recommend that you use non-aggressive formulas that are rich in moisturizing agents and you should think about products rich in antioxidants or vitamin E. The main idea of skin care is to purify and refresh the skin tissue and protect the skin from impurities. Cleansing oil, cleansing gel, purifying lotion, or foam, choose the right products for your skin. 

After cleansing, it's time for treatments! For an effective skin care regimen, we recommend good moisturizing products. Choose those that are both rich in emollients and protective agents. You need your skin to be deeply nourished, protected, soothed, and fortified. 

You can also use The Gua Sha Massage Tool, to improve blood circulation, and lymphatic drainage, decrease puffiness, and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. This will give your skin all the care it needs to glow and look fabulous. 

  1. Don’t Forget Your lips

Our lips are not only fragile but also very sensitive. In fact, the skin covering our lips is much thinner than that of the rest of the body. In addition, the lips have neither sebaceous glands that protect them and keep them soft nor the ability to moisturize themselves. As a result, they react strongly to environmental influences and can quickly become dry and irritated. These problems can usually be avoided with simple steps and constant lip care: 

Dry lips often need an external boost to restore their smoothness. But if possible, avoid products that contain mineral oils. Natural lip balms based on vegetable oils and fats such as shea butter or beeswax protect the lips almost equally well and are guaranteed to be safe. Important: Don't forget to use sun protection! Lips are sensitive to UV rays. Moreover, you can simply massage your lips gently with a soft toothbrush or a sugar/honey mixture to remove dead skin. This keeps the skin soft and makes other skin care products work even better. 

  1. Boost Radiance with Vitamin C

Include a daily vitamin C serum into your regimen to help improve radiance throughout the holidays and prevent dull, tired skin. We recommend the ISLAND C GLOW DROPS SERUM to protect your skin from free radicals and brighten it significantly. Vitamin C is highly concentrated in antioxidants, molecules capable of preventing skin oxidation. Oxidation is responsible for the production of free radicals, unstable substances that cause chain reactions in the skin and accelerate its aging process. Antioxidants such as vitamin C help the skin defend itself against stress factors by neutralizing harmful substances. 

  1. Finish with a Bit of Glow and Oils

Skin oils are one of the best skin care discoveries. Oils are natural plant extracts, generally obtained by steam distillation. As they concentrate volatile active ingredients, they are strong and extraordinarily effective. If they act on internal disorders, their action is also impressive on the skin (anti-aging, anti-acne ...). 

Skin oils, as compared to lotions and moisturizers, offer a finishing touch to your entire appearance and, in most cases, have a long-lasting scent that will leave you smelling as wonderful as you look! These oils aim to restore the texture of your skin while also hydrating it. Check out our ROSEHIP SEED OIL + SOURSOP OIL product HERE. 

  1. Take time for yourself (Ignore this one – this is a separate e mail)

Making time for oneself entails planning ahead of time. This time should be dedicated just for you. It is not intended to be alone time to catch up on chores on your to-do list. 

Setting aside some time for yourself allows you to spend time alone doing what you want, rather than what others believe you should be doing. It's a basic self-care exercise that many people struggle to implement.  

You can exercise self-reflection and self-awareness during your alone time. You can start to understand yourself better. There is no one else for whom you must perform, and no one whom you must impress. This means you may simply be yourself and see how that feels. With the help of some aromatherapy fragrances, you can setup a relaxing environment to enjoy your peace of mind. Aromatherapy is a sort of treatment that is used to assist us in healing, resting, and recovering from stress or sickness, something we all can benefit from during the holiday hectic season. 

Check out our PEACE & GLOW and LOVE GLOW aromatherapy fragrances, for an amazing atmosphere. 

  1. 6. Drink plenty of water.

The holidays are the ideal time to indulge in a few extra cocktails, but alcohol can have a negative impact on the look of your skin. Stay hydrated by drinking water in between glasses of wine or cocktails. Many dermatologists, skin specialists, and scientists agree that drinking water helps prolong the life of your skin cells, so drink as much as possible, with 3 liters being the daily goal. Foods with high water content, such as melons and cucumbers, are excellent skin-friendly holiday snacks. 

With these awesome, great Tips and effective products from silktage, your skin should be prepped and good to glow all season long! Have a healthy, safe, and ultra-hydrating holiday
