After weeks of indulging and socialising, our skin might need a little extra TLC… For an instant boost, I like to apply an ice face mask which stimulates circulation and removes toxins, or a chilled Aloe Vera mask if I’ve enjoyed a little too much sun.
When I have more time available, I support my festive skin recovery with an at-home facial:
1. Always start with washing hands and a thorough double cleanse. The first cleanse removes surface debris, while the second cleanse reaches and cleans the pores.
2. Follow with 3 minute exfoliation to slough away dead skin, build up of make-up and let the skin breathe. I’m currently loving the Sodashi Enzyme Face Polish, a triple glow activator with pomegranate enzyme and sweet orange to decongest, brighten and clarify.
3. A 20 minute mask, ideally applied in the bath: the steam softens the skin for the ingredients to reach their target cells. Dry skin will benefit from a moisturising mask to hydrate, while oily skin will benefit from a clay-based mask to draw out excess oil. Mesoestetic create an Anti-Stress Mask which is ideal for all skin types. An intensive mask that soothes and relieves redden and sensitive skins.
4. Increase water intake and vitamins with a marine collagen from @vidaglow or hydralyte additive, and sip on a healing, soothing and hydrating Skin Tisane created for beautiful skin (over ice).
