It’s December! Do you know what this means? Going to parties, having endless fun, bonding with family and friends, and enjoying “me time”. Most importantly, December is the month when we regain our energy and recharge after a long year of hard work.
With all the parties you have lined up (most of them on short notice) plus the end of year hassle at work, it’s no wonder you have little time to care for your skin. Still, you’d like to have it all, wouldn’t you? Attend all the cool parties, meet all the deadlines and look fabulous while doing it.
We feel you.
So we prepared a list of tips to help you make stunning appearances at all the parties of this month. All doable within 24 hours.
Take Care of Your Face with a Nourishing Mask
The cold December weather can dry out your skin and make fatigue even more visible. When on a short notice, try a nourishing mask (a sheet mask can do wonders for your skin) or a facial massage. If you opt for a cream mask, you can leave it on during the night to boost its effect.
Moisturize Your Hands and Legs
Most of us do the same mistake: we take extra good care of our face, but completely forget about the skin on the rest of our body. Your hands are always visible and so are your legs if you opt for a short skirt. Take good care of them. Within 24 hours, you can apply a good moisturizer three times! That’s enough to get them to look awesome!
Take a Power Nap
A short nap of 20 to 30 minutes relaxes the skin. During sleep, your blood circulation will also be improved and your skin will look better completely natural. Plus, a short nap will also help you stay until late for the party. No yawning AND party-ready skin – that’s what I call a major win!
Avoid Hot Baths
Even though a hot bath reduces stress and induces sleep, it also has a very bad effect on your skin. Hot baths can inflame the skin causing redness and itching. They also rob the skin of moisture and natural oils making the skin dry. You may not want an ice-cold shower in December (although your skin would really love it), but try not to set the water temperature higher than lukewarm.
That’s it – this is all you need to do to get a party-ready skin in 24 hours! Now all you need is a pair of killer stilettos and you’ll be the sensation of any December party.
