How To Look After Your Skin This Party Season

It’s time to get into the party mood - and what a better way to prepare, than to start with your skin. Before you begin to go to get-togethers, it’s important to have all the facts about how to look after your skin during this party season.

How To Unclog Your Pores

During the festive season, we all tend to wear a lot more makeup than usual. Party, after party, we all want to look our best at get-togethers. But what does this mean for our skin? Our pores can be the first to suffer, which means they may need special attention. 
First things first, we would recommend avoiding squeezing your pores. This can only agitate them further, and cause inflammation. Instead, why not try using a cleanser with salicylic acid in it? For example, our Obagi CLENZIderm Daily Care Foaming Cleanser has been expertly formulated to be used daily as part of daily skincare. Perfect for those with Normal to Oily skin types as well as acne sufferers. Complete with  2% salicylic acid, it will remove dirt and excess oil, leaving skin clean and refreshed. So, if you are partying more in this festive period, then we suggest having a cleanser such as this on board!

How To Remove Makeup Effectively

Removing your makeup is a must. We all know what it’s like, after a party - all you want to do is crawl into bed, and sleep the rest of the night away. However, one of the key steps to looking after your skin is to remove your makeup. 

Snoozing with a full face of makeup can trap dirt and environmental pollutants inside your skin. Not only can this extubate spots, blemishes, and acne, but it can also increase free radicals, which can cause your natural collagen levels to degrade more rapidly and add to premature aging - and that’s why it’s important to remove your makeup properly, regardless of how many cocktails you have had! 
We recommend having a high-quality cleanser, that should be sufficient to take off any foundation, blush or bronzer you have on. Our SkinCeuticals Simply Clean Cleanser is a perfect example. This powerful face wash can exfoliate uneven and rough skin as well as remove any tough to get off makeup. Whilst strong, and works to remove any product you have on your face, it is also gentle enough to use twice daily.

Why Hydration Is A Must

Hydration is another essential part of a heavy-makeup skincare routine. Whilst you are sipping on cocktails at your Christmas get-togethers this year, remember to also drink a glass of water in between. Dehydration can be detrimental to your skin. 
Over a long period of time, not drinking water can cause the ageing process to speed up. You may start to notice fine lines and wrinkles, as well as a more dull complexion. However, there are also effects in the short term too. When you wake up in the morning, you could appear more puffy than normal. Also, if you have dry skin, it could become flaky. Water even helps reduce acne and other skin problems by flushing harmful toxins from the body.
