Holiday time is stressful, and the skin is the first place to react. From the mixture of sweets, late nights, and stress, the skin spends a rather "neglectful" holiday.
This holiday I have decided to not fall down that path and have been rather successful at achieving a nice "glow".
1. Drink a lot of water:
When I say drink a lot, I mean drink a LOT. People do not realize how dry the air is during Winter. Staying Hydrated will be your friend in more ways than you know.
2.) Amp up the moisturizer:
Yes, the rumors are true. "Drink-up Intensive Moisturizer" by Origins is as good as they say.
Depending on where you live and how cold it is, you will need to keep moisturized. When I use to live in colder climates, I would always use a heavier moisturizer during the Winter Months.
3.) Added Glow:
Ok, so this is cheating, but lets be honest, the fastest way to achieving a nice glow is with amazing skin brighteners. These three are currently my favorite.
-Too Faced: Candlelight
Is a warm glow with a light powder consistency. If you don't want to break out, stick with this one.
-Benefit: Watt's Up
Gorgeous rosy highlighter that can double as an eyeshadow base. The texture is very creamy, and natural.
-IT Cosmetics: Highlighter
Also a rosier glow, with a creamy texture.
Last but not least, don't stress the small stuff. Remember, what is important in life, and what is not, and eliminate the unnecessary stress. Happiness, and relaxation allows the body to produce natural chemicals that achieve the best glow of all.
