December is upon us and tis’ the season to indulge in our favourite festive treats, stay up late catching up with friends and enjoy a few more alcoholic beverages than we normally would! It’s all part of the festive fun, but looking in the mirror towards the end of the month do you usually find your once glowing skin looking like you’ve aged overnight?
Sadly having too much fun, and forgetting to take care of our skin can lead to blotchy, dehydrated, lacklustre skin. Plus, the risk of breakouts from overindulgence. So how can your skin survive December?
Thankfully there are a few simple things you can do that will limit the damage whilst still enjoying the festivities and ensure glowing skin all Christmas long!
You’ve heard this many times before, but it’s so easy to forget when prosecco is also on offer! Alcohol dehydrates your skin and can lead to fine lines forming or becoming more prominent. Try having a glass of water between your mulled wine to give your complexion a healthy boost and ensure your glowing skin looks fresh the next morning.
Get a glowing skin treatment
Our skin experts can help get your skin glowing with an express LPG endermologie face treatment. In just 15 minutes, the LPG endermologie Glow treatment uses the mechanical treatment head to give you instant glowing skin by reactivating fibroblasts and exfoliating the skin. Why not add in onto the end of your regular skin treatment – whether that be a CACI facial or Dermalogica facial – for that extra GLOW!
Make time for beauty sleep
Your skin repairs and regenerates in a deep sleep but the party season can mean lots of late nights where your skin won’t have the time to rejuvenate itself naturally. If you find it hard to switch off, try Dermalogica’s Sleep Sound Cocoon. The revitalising treatment gel-cream transforms skin overnight and the motion-activated essential oils work all night to promote restful sleep for healthier-looking skin by morning.
Take some ‘me’ time
Make sure you carve away some time for you in the festive madness, it can be so easy to go full throttle and then be burnt out before the big day arrives. Book your favourite massage or your favourite Dermalogica facial in our Buckingham skin and beauty salon to revive both skin and soul.
It might be tempting to fall into bed after coming home late but you run the risk of clogging up pores with the day’s dirt and bacteria if you don’t take off your make-up – which could lead to the dreaded breakout before the Christmas party! Your skin will thank you the next morning with your usual glow!
Whatever you have planned this festive season, our skin and beauty salon in Buckingham is here to be your pampering escape. Take a look at our full treatment offering.
