If you’ve noticed you’re feeling sluggish and worn out after the busy festive period, your skin has probably suffered too.
Over-indulging, stress and lack of sleep can all wreak havoc with your skin’s natural glow.
Get back to your best self with these simple tips…
1. Adjust your beauty routine
Looking after your skin properly is key if it’s been through the wringer over the last few weeks. Make a simple routine and stick to it – a daily cleansing, toning, exfoliation and moisturising process is faster and more convenient than you’d think. You’ll soon notice your skin is brighter and clearer!
2. Don’t clog your skin
While caking on a ton of make-up might seem like the best solution when your skin is dull and breaking out, you need to give it room to breathe too. If you don’t have plans for the evening, why not take your make-up off as soon as you get home from work rather than waiting for bedtime? Whenever you can, go make-up free.
3. Stay hydrated
Drinking enough water is key to maintaining a healthy glow. Try to fit in around two litres a day – once you start the habit of drinking water regularly, you’ll find it gets easier and easier.
4. Get enough sleep
Nothing distresses your skin more than a lack of sleep. Eight hours is considered the norm but you may need less or more – whatever it takes for you to wake up feeling refreshed.
5. Cut out sugar when you can
Processed, high-sugar foods only serve to cause inflammation and break-outs. Cut down on refined and added sugar where you can by only eating fresh, unprocessed food.
