Skincare Hacks to Survive the Holiday Season

Posted by

It's the same every year as the holidays approach: You start out excited, with magazine-worthy visions of glittering decorations, leisurely coffee dates over peppermint mochas, and witty cards that actually get mailed on time for once. Then suddenly you're two weeks into December, it's after midnight, you're exhausted and staring down your third cookie swap, and you're wondering how much you're going to have to spackle your face tomorrow to keep from looking like a Dickensian workhouse orphan at your company holiday party.

Of course, nothing can replace the basics of good self-care-- plenty of sleep, healthful food, hydration, time to relax-- but in the midst of the holiday crunch when your to-do list is expanding as fast as your social calendar, sometimes you need a little skincare magic to revive your complexion and let you enjoy the celebrations you've been most looking forward to.

Start out with a soothing mask like  SkinCeuticals Clarifying Clay Masque that you can leave on while you start getting ready. Its blend of alpha hydroxy acids, aloe, chamomile, and clays works together to gently clear dead skin and clogged pores while soothing irritation or inflammation, leaving your face soft and refreshed.

Get tired skin back to radiance with  SkinMedica's Lytera® Skin Brightening Complex, with a host of natural brighteners to give you a lovely glow and even tone. Dark circles betraying too many late nights?  SkinMedica's TNS Illuminating Eye Cream diffuses light to minimize fine lines and dark circles while nourishing the delicate skin below your eyes, especially when used as part of a  total eye care regimen.

Pat in a light coat of  SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel to get the combined benefit of the skin-quenching humectants and the hyaluronic acid to seal in moisture and keep your skin plump and firm. Finish off with  SkinMedica's two-step Lip Plump System to hydrate and fill out your lips while drawing out their natural rosiness.

A sweep or two of  Grande Naturals Grande Lash Mascara boosts volume and length to complete your bright-eyed beauty.

Keep up your smooth, even tone throughout the night when you tuck a  SkinMedica TNS Line Refine in your bag to instantly spot-check and fill out fine lines around your eyes and mouth-- even over makeup!

With less than an hour of preparation, you can step out feeling confident that you're looking vibrant and full of cheer for your most-anticipated holiday plans even when you've been dragging. Just remember to add to your list: Making post-holiday R&R your top-priority New Year's resolution.
