Skincare to see you through the Festive Party Season
The festive season is here! You can hear the Christmas jingles. You can smell the cinnamon. And you’re ready for the Party Season. And then you see that your calendar is lit up like a Christmas tree with pre-work, after-work and weekend-long drinks and dinners. With all the festive meals and mulled wine, plus the cold, wintry weather, your skin can feel really dehydrated, sensitive and in need of some TLC. We know the feeling and we’re here to help! Follow our Top 5 skincare tips below to see you through the festive season with radiant, healthy skin.
#1: Prep your skin for the week ahead with a face mask
Before you launch into the festive season, it's well worth taking the time to enjoy our Green Clay Face Mask. It has three mighty green ingredients to leave your skin brighter, healthier and more radiant: French Green Clay (its unique blend of minerals detoxify skin), Organic Matcha Green Tea (rich in antioxidants, with anti-inflammatory properties) and Organic Moringa (high levels of vitamins A, C and E). Mix with water, honey (for dry skin) or natural yoghurt (for oily skin) and leave on for 5-10 minutes before rinsing off with warm water, removing any excess with a damp Organic Muslin Facial Cloth.
#2: Nourish your skin with an omega-rich facial oil
With the long days of the party season, your skincare needs to be able to provide long-lasting hydration and nourishment. It's why we recommend a facial oil which can penetrate the deeper layers of your skin and keep your skin radiant and plumped long into the early hours. Our multi award-winning Organic Facial Oil contains Organic Sweet Almond Oil which is naturally high in vitamin E to boost the skin's elasticity, promote the production of collagen and prevent dehydration by reducing moisture loss from the skin. The Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil in the blend is rich in omega fatty acids and has collagen boosting properties to promote healthy skin. Apply a couple of drops to slightly damp skin, and pat and press it into your skin.
#3: Use a plant-based body oil to banish dry skin
You've got the LBD ready, but your legs are oh so not ready - summer feels like a long time ago now. Add some deep nourishment, with no greasy residue, with our Organic Body Oil. Rich in organic, plant-based oils, it is fast-absorbing and instantly transforms dry skin into healthy, radiant skin. Apply after a bath or shower, using long flowing strokes, working toward the heart to boost circulation.
#4: Enjoy a long-lasting natural highlighter and lip gloss
Multi-tasking is the name of the game when you're jumping from one party to another. And our Organic Lip Balm will get you there. For a natural highlighter, sweep a small amount of the balm across your cheek bone and mix with your creme blush to create a natural lip gloss. Made with 100% certified-organic ingredients, the lip balm will soothe and soften your skin: that's the Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Apricot and Organic Beeswax working their magic.
#5: Restore all-danced-out muscles with relaxing Bath Salts
After a long day - and lots of dancing (and probably a little bit too much indulgence) - it's time to relax and unwind with our Bath Salts. Made with sustainably-sourced Himalayan Pinks Salts, Dead Sea Salts and French Pink Clay, the uniquely-high mineral content will calm your nervous system, encourage lymphatic drainage, cleanse and detoxify your body. Add a generous handful of the Bath Salts to a warm bath and soak for at least 15 minutes.
However you're spending the party season, be kind to yourself and find those moments to care for your skin. Keep hydrated. Keep calm. And have fun! Share your festive moments with us on Instagram @bysarahlondon.
