Your Ultimate Guide to Saving Your Skin This Silly Season

Your Ultimate Guide to Saving Your Skin This Silly Season

The silly season has officially kicked off, and while we're all in for the festive vibes, too much sun, late nights, and holiday shenanigans can leave your skin feeling grumpier than the Grinch without his morning coffee.⁣

In today's blog, we're serving up our hottest tips to keep your skin looking as fresh as a poolside cocktail. ⁣

1. Fill up on the more nutritious options first ⁣

Overindulging can be tempting at this time of the year, but here's a little insider tip: when you treat your body to the nourishing options first, those pesky cravings tend to chill out. It's like having a chat with your taste buds and saying, "Alright, we've had the good stuff, now let's enjoy a treat without going overboard." Too much sugar can stir up inflammation in both the body and the skin. This inflammation can break down collagen and disrupt cellular renewal, leading to premature wrinkles and lacklustre skin. So, make those nutrient-rich goodies your appetiser, and as you choose to indulge in the naughtier treats, you'll discover that moderation becomes your superpower.⁣

2. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate⁣

Ok, we know you've heard this advice a million times before, but trust us when we say this one is important! With the festive season comes a little more indulgence in alcohol and sugary drinks. The downside? Dehydrated skin causing blotchiness, irritation and dryness. Staying on top of your water intake is not only a great way to help flush out a build up of toxins but is the key to keeping your skin happily hydrated.⁣

3. Slap on that SPF⁣

This time of the year calls for beach days and cocktails by the pool, but rain, hail, or shine this summer, SPF is your skin's BFF helping to shield you from the sun's harmful UV rays which can cause premature aging, wrinkles, and even skin cancer. Using SPF regularly helps prevent sunburn and reduces the risk of long-term damage, ensuring your skin remains healthy and youthful - it's a no brainer if you ask us!


4. Get those zzz's⁣

After a couple of champagnes, we know how tempting it is to paint the town red, but try to think of your beauty sleep the CEO of your skincare routine. While you rest, your skin works tirelessly to repair and regenerate, boost collagen production, reduce inflammation, and maintain its natural moisture balance. The result? A complexion that's refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to face the ongoing festivities. ⁣


5. Wipe the day away⁣

Apart from potentially turning your beautiful bedding into a technicolor canvas, sleeping in makeup is like rolling out the welcome mat for bacteria, leading to clogged pores, breakouts, and unwanted redness and sensitivity. So, before you hit the hay, indulge in a double cleanse – once to gently wipe away the remnants of the day and twice for a deep clean. Top it off with a moisturiser to replenish hydration and maintain that delicate skin balance.⁣

You might not wake up feeling entirely fresh, but your skin sure will thank you for the VIP treatment!⁣


5. TLC for tired eyes⁣⁣
The silly season can turn your eyes into a tired tale of late nights and non-stop festivities, but our secret weapon to keep us looking rejuvenated all summer long is one of our trusty Face Rollers. Store in the fridge overnight and let the cool sensation work its magic, reducing puffiness and promoting circulation. Pair this with a hydrating eye serum or cream for an extra boost. A Face Roller not only enhances product absorption but also promotes circulation, giving your eyes the care they truly deserve.⁣⁣
So, when the festivities have taken their toll, reach for your trusty Face Roller, and let the fatigue roll away. It goes beyond skincare – it's a self-care ritual that your eyes will appreciate and your mind, body and soul will love.
