Preparing your skin for a perfect complexion before the holidays
To get a perfect and beautiful complexion during the holidays, it is important to prepare your skin in advance. Start a skincare routine and don't wait until the last minute to take action. To achieve a flawless complexion without any gimmicks, there are a few tricks you can use.
Cleanse the face morning and evening
It is essential to cleanse the skin daily with a product adapted to the nature of your skin (oily, dry, combination). It removes the impurities accumulated on the skin due to poor hygiene, pollution, smoking, etc.
You should never forget to clean your face at the end of the day. Because the skin only regenerates cells at night. It ensures microcirculation, which allows old cells to be replaced by brand new ones. When you lather the cleanser on your face, don't forget the neck and décolleté.
Apply a day cream
A day cream moisturises the epidermis and protects the skin against external aggressions such as wind and UV rays. Moreover, it reinforces the hydrolipidic (a protective film).
Apply the cream adapted to your skin type, massaging the face lightly with circular movements. This technique stimulates the blood microcirculation.
Scrub every week
Exfoliation or scrubbing should be done regularly to keep the skin looking new.
Mechanical exfoliation (with grains or microbeads) and chemical exfoliation are all recommended. In addition, you can use a facial brush to unclog pores and remove blackheads.
Weekly exfoliation ensures clean skin and serves to remove impurities and dead skin.
Focus on hydration
Moisturising is one of the key tips for a fresh, unadorned complexion. Follow the next step for successful moisturizing.
The steam bath
The steam bath is an essential step. It dilates the pores and prevents the formation of blackheads and spots.
To proceed, place the face over a bowl of simmering water (with 2 drops of essential oil) for 10 minutes.
The face mask
After bathing, consider making a mask with creams or natural plant oils. Sweet almond, avocado or argan oils are ideal for dry skin. Coconut, moringa and jojoba oils are best for oily skin.
Leave the mask on for a few minutes and then rinse your face with clean water.
Drink water throughout the day
Water helps to eliminate toxins and deeply hydrate the tissues. As a result, your complexion will be clearer and more limpid.
Keeping alcohol and cigarettes away
Don't worry, you'll have the opportunity to drink alcohol during the holidays, but to ensure your skin tone is perfect, don't drink it before the big day. Cigarettes and alcohol make your skin tone grey and dull.
Focus on healthy eating
In order to look vibrant, eat vitamin and water-rich fruit and vegetables regularly. You should also avoid sweets and cold cuts at all costs.
