The holiday season is upon us. That means a ton of fun and frolic at holiday get-togethers with family and friends, but it can also translate into stress. Lots of it. There’s the stress of making everything feel festive, the stress of buying gifts, and more stress on your body consuming all those extra holiday goodies and drinks. That can mean dullness, breakouts, and general congestion in your skin.
So how can you make your skin show less stress this holiday season? It’s easy with all the right de-stress skincare products in your daily routine from Cosmedica Skincare. We've got you covered this holiday season with cruelty-free skincare products that will make your skincare routine a blissful pleasure. Be merry and bright with skin that feels the same way.
Clear Skin Products to Mask Up
In looking at skincare for women, having a stress-induced skin response can usually look like irritation, redness, or even acne that comes out of nowhere. One day your skin is perfect and the next, it’s breakout city.
When you discover breakouts that you know are stress-induced, you’ll want to use some clear skin products fast. Sometimes those breakouts can be from things you are eating and drinking that aren’t a normal part of your lifestyle. Hello eggnog and your aunt’s rum-infused fruit cake. You’ll need to help detox your skin fast, so using different types of masks to help get rid of clogged pores should become a part of your weekly routine.
Try our Deep Detox Charcoal Mask a few times per week. It contains three active ingredients; charcoal, kaolin clay, and bentonite to draw impurities out of the skin. You’ll notice that dead skin cells are removed for skin that is smoother, softer, and brighter with fewer breakouts.
Another mask to try that helps to exfoliate with alpha hydroxy acid, a fruit-based acid, is the Pumpkin Face Mask. This mask will brighten your skin by helping with cell turnover and has antioxidant vitamins to boost collagen production. Your skin will look smooth and glowing in no time flat! Either of these facial masks can be used during the holidays while you’re wrapping presents or getting your favorite festive cookies ready to take to a friend’s house. Using masks is a perfect way to de-stress during the holidays and practicing the best in self-care.
Even though it’s the holiday season, it’s always a good time to make sure your skin is primed for the future. The best way to do that is with effective anti-aging skincare. One of the first steps to pampering your skin daily is to help it retain more moisture. That’s where using our Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum is a great addition to any skincare routine. The serum will also help all your other products to absorb better and be more effective.
Start with the right facial cleanser for your skin type, then use the hyaluronic acid serum, followed up by a hydrating day cream. You’ll notice that with this simple three-step routine, your skin is going to be more likely to stand up to the rigors of holiday stress.
A Special Note on Skincare for Men
Men have special skincare needs too. During the holidays, guys might need to shave more often to show up for all those holiday gatherings. Using the right skincare for men will help to fortify the skin, so that redness, irritation, and bumps aren’t an issue. One of the products that will help to reduce irritation is our Hydrate & Tone Rosewater Witch Hazel Face Toner. Spray it onto the skin right after shaving to help soothe and tone. The last thing a man wants is a face with irritated razor burn when trying to make a good impression at a holiday work party.
The stress of the holidays will be over before you know it. Hopefully, you’ll be left with warm memories and some great skincare advances from the products that we offer at Cosmedica Skincare. Happy Holidays from our entire staff and ‘tis the season for glowing and brighter skin.
