It’s party season again and we would like to give you the gift of clear, glowing skin. If your skin is looking tired and dry unfortunately no amount of glitter will rescue it. These simple skincare tips will help your skin to look its best this Christmas.
It’s essential and especially at this time of year to drink lots of water. Drink it in the morning, in the evening, and before you crash into bed. Make it a habit and all those alcohol and heavy food-related toxins will be flushed out of your system. Skin will be hydrated from the inside and you will wake up feeling better too!
There’s a topical solution to hydrating your skin too. Hailed as a ‘drink of water for your skin’, hyaluronic acid is a hero hydrator. One molecule of hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water. It locks moisture into the skin, instantly plumps up fine lines and wrinkles and smooths out the complexion. You know how a baby’s skin looks so deliciously plump and dewy? That’s the hyaluronic effect and it’s why incorporating a hyaluronic serum into your skincare routine is an essential hydration tool.
2. A Skin-Saving Skincare routine
We thought about this a lot and all of that thought is packed into Pestle & Mortar’s Box of Stars. We chose our four skin stars this Christmas so that everything you need for beautiful skin is in one stunningly presented box.
Our iconic Pure Hyaluronic Serum instantly plumps up the skin and delivers intense hydration. Recover eye-cream tightens, smooths and tones the delicate skin around the eye area. Exfoliate glycolic toner diminishes dullness to reveal a glowing complexion. Hydrate moisturiser delivers daily hydration without clogging pores.
Each product boasts its own active ingredient which means that you are layering on different benefits – not doubling up. With this carefully-chosen set of products, your skin will get exactly what it needs to be hydrated, plump and glowing, before the party, at the party and after the party.
3. Make-up Removal
No matter what, do not leave make-up on at night! While you sleep, growth hormone stimulates renewal of all of the body’s organs, including the skin, (In fact, we naturally shed about 50 million skin cells a day.) Makeup can trap dead skin cells, preventing them from sloughing off and leaving you with a dull complexion. Sleeping with make-up on leads to dehydrated skin, broken eyelashes, increased exposure to free radicals, dull skin tone and wrinkles.
Better still, double cleanse to ensure that all traces of make-up and grime are removed. Not only does double cleansing thoroughly clean and polish the skin, it prepares it to receive other products. Everything that you apply after an effective double cleanse will work better. You will notice that if you consistently double cleanse, your skin will begin to look brighter, feel softer and appear clearer. Your skin will wake up prepped to party again.
