December is a month full of amazing food, drinks, parties, and holiday cheer. But, along with the joyful days of the holiday season this may also bring on some skin issues. Dryness, redness, and irritation are nothing to cheer about. Here are some Dormer211 holiday skincare tips so you can focus on the celebration!
Tip #1 Cleanse morning and night
Using a cleanser that won’t strip your skin of its natural oils is ideal. Use a cleanser that is Ph balanced and avoid alcohol-based toners or astringents. They may dry your skin further.
Tip #2 Moisturize
Although you should be using a moisturizer year-round, it is especially important to not skip this step during this time of year. A moisturizer is necessary to help add moisture into your skin and keep water from evaporating from your skin. Dormer211 moisturizing creams with hyaluronic acid and vitamin E will help provide long-lasting hydration. And don’t forget to moisturize those lips!
Tip #3 Lower the thermostat and humidify the air
High heat not only leads to drier skin, but drier lips, nose and throat. Keep the thermostat at a low setting, yet a comfortable one. Consider investing in a humidifier which will help add moisture to the dry winter air.
Tip #4 Don’t stress!
Between doing last-minute shopping and party planning, the holidays can bring on significant stress. And it may show on your skin! Stress can bring on acne breakouts, hives, and even cause flare-ups in skin conditions like eczema, rosacea, and psoriasis.
When you feel the stress of the holidays getting the best of you, take some time to relax. Treat yourself to yoga, a spa day, or even an at-home relaxing hydrating face mask.
Tip #5 Get some good quality shut-eye
Getting a good night’s sleep during the holidays can be quite challenging. Who says “beauty sleep” is cliché? Seven to eight hours of quality sleep is necessary for cell regeneration and skin repair. During deep sleep, the rise in growth hormone allows damaged cells to become repaired. Without the deeper phases of sleep, this won't occur, which may result in more noticeable signs of aging.
