5 Beauty Secrets You Ought to Know
Most of us tend to work more than we do leisure activities or take time for ourselves. But keeping your nose to the grindstone constantly can lead to burnout. Luckily, the holiday season is about to unfold.
This is the time to enjoy your successes, big-or-small, and each-other because the holidays are a time of fun, joy and celebration.
It’s a time of the year packed with busy social calendars full of reasons to get dressed up and rock your glamorous make-up looks.
Here are our top 5 tips and tricks that will leave you looking great every day throughout this festive season.
We all want to look flawless during this time. Applying foundation the right way will help your make-up stay impeccable for hours on end. The secret is layering. Start with a primer pre-foundation (our Hyaluronic Acid Serum also works wonders on fresh clean skin), and gradually work concealer under your eyes. Apply foundation working outward toward your hair, temples and jawline. Then, give a dusting of sheer powder to set.
And don't forget to drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from inside-out!
Keep acne away
Red may be the color of holidays but if you have acne, you likely want to avoid this color on your face!
You may not be able to avoid the endless parade of sugary foods that the holidays bring but you can still do something about acne. Give your skin a deep pore cleansing with Sodium Bentonite clay. Bentonite Clay makes a great facial mask that helps shrink pores, tone and tighten skin.
We also recommend vitamin C skin care products like our Vitamin C Serum for Face. This is because vitamin C contains anti-inflammatory properties that helps to reduce the redness and swelling that comes with acne. It also helps prevent acne scars by increasing the synthesis of collagen, a protein responsible for your skin's structure and vital for rebuilding healthy skin.
Touch of sparkle
With Christmas comes bright lights and all things twinkly. This means, it’s time to sparkle things up! Get out your shimmer eyeshadow and add some glamour to your lids. Slightly wet the brush before you add powder shimmer and apply along your crease. A little goes a long way. If something goes haywire here, you can use a small piece of tape to pick up glitter strays.
Get a manicure
If you are running on a tight back-to-back party schedule or travelling across the country to be with your relatives during the festive season, you may not have time to visit a salon to top up your manicure. So it’s a good idea to get gel nails as they will last from Halloween to Thanksgiving!
Vitamin C Serum
Too much partying and a hectic schedule can take a toll on our skin. Vitamin C Serum will protect your skin from free radicals, reduce skin discoloration, support production of collagen and generally brighten your skin. Collagen basically makes your skin more pliable & elastic which can literally take ages off your face.
These are our top tips for the upcoming holiday season.
