The winter holidays are a time for family, friends, and festivity, but no matter how you celebrate, the year-end holiday season can turn routines upside down and causing a long list of holiday related skin problems, including puffiness, red and irritated eyes, and dry, dull skin. Watch out for skin stressors and keep up healthy habits so you can keep your skin glowing throughout the holidays and into spring.


Stay Hydrated

We are all crazy busy during the holidays that we may not even realize how easy it is to become dehydrated. Alcohol, caffeinated drinks and just overall being too busy to just stop and take a second to drink some water. When you aren’t drinking enough water your body’s moisture can become depleted and your skin will become dry and dull. We’re not saying to chug down eight glasses of water. Just make sure you are drinking plenty of non-caffeinated beverages, such as teas and mineral waters, especially if you’ve enjoyed a few glasses of wine at a party.


Cut Out The Salt

Processed meats, crackers, cheese, chips and even many desserts contain high amounts of salt. Even if do not have high blood pressure, sodium can cause water retention, which can cause water retention, which can make your face puffy. The solution is to avoid in too many salty foods and make sure you stay hydrated.


Cleanse and Moisturize

With the busy holiday schedules, skincare routines can fall by the wayside. We’ve all have been guilty of all falling asleep without removing our makeup one time or another. It is all too easy to rush when applying moisturizers, or skip other parts of your usual regimen. But that can lead to problems such as red, irritated eyes, breakouts, and dry skin. The cold weather can also increase your chances of chapped lips and hands.

No matter how busy you are, make sure to keep your skin clean and moisturized.

Balance Your Diet

From November to January, most people are at the gym trying to work on their New Year’s resolutions. This can be hard around the holidays with the abundance of foods that we are consuming and the bountiful amount of leftovers that we have going into the New Year. It can be hard, but make sure your overall diet is a healthy one that includes plenty of “good” oils and fats, complex carbs and vegetables. Our skin problems such as breakouts and dryness may be due to the shortage of key nutrients, and holiday overindulgences can worsen those problems.


Find Time To Rest

After all of the food that we consume over the holidays, we all are in need of a nap. But the late nights, long visits and early outings can disrupt sleep routines and rob you of some much needed relaxation time. But just like how our mind and bodies need rest, so dos our skin. When we get enough sleep, it reduces eye puffiness and redness and nourishes skin cells.

It is easy to feel stressed, even if you are enjoying the busy holiday season. Stress can trigger the release of hormones adrenaline and cortisol, which can contribute to poor skin condition and dullness. Just take a few moments out of your day and sit quietly and breathe deeply, this can reduce the effect of stress hormones on your skin.



Keep your skin healthy this season, it will thank you later! We hope everyone enjoys the holidays and maintains that perfect looking skin!
