New Year’s resolutions almost always include some sort of “get fit” commitment. After weeks of endless Christmas parties filled with scrumptious holiday food, we all flock to the gym, cycle or yoga studio to work on that waistline.
But have you ever wondered how the holidays can take a toll on your skin as well?
Countless parties, lack of sleep and an unhealthy diet can leave your complexion dull and tired. Not exactly how you’d want to start 2017, now is it?
But don’t you fret, you won’t need to go into a full-blown Gwyneth Paltrow-type juice fast to get your glow back. A few simple tricks and some skincare products will help detoxify you skin and get a fresh start into the New Year.
Step 1: Cleanse
As with every skincare routine, it is imperative to cleanse your skin thoroughly. All those party makeup looks were certainly fabulous, but your skin needs a break. We love the rich and luxurious texture of Pixi Nourishing Cleansing Balm. It’s sweet almond oil, shea butter and Vitamin E nourish at the same time.
As this is meant to be a detox, we take it to the next level by using the Korean/Japanese method of double-cleansing. After the oil-based Nourishing Balm, we recommened a water-based cleanser just like Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Foaming Mask. It’s CPR oxygen technology will help whisk away damaged and dying cells to make room for healthy, younger-looking skin.
Step 2: Exfoliate
Our cult-favorite Pixi Glow Tonic is your best friend when it comes to gaining back glowing, gorgeous skin.
Step 3: Steam
Get rid of the remaining gunk in your pores by doing your DIY Facial Steam. It’s the best way to treat your skin to some pampering.
Step 4: Nourish
Your eyes deserve extra pampering. H2Oplus Night Oasis Overnight Eye Complex works its’ wonders while you sleep.
Beauty editors have been saying it for a while now: oils are the new moisturizers. A few drops of Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil on your face will help regenerate skin cells and leave your skin nourished and moisturized.
Follow these steps in combination with the old rules of eating healthy, working out regularly and keeping yourself hydrated and you’ll tackle 2017 with glowing and healthy-looking skin.
