3 Tips to Avoid Breakouts

As the holiday season quickly approaches, we all know that the sugar rush will be inevitable.

With dietary stressors, busy schedules and all of those upcoming holiday parties we want to prepare you the best way we know how; by helping you care for your skin. 

We do know that maintaining a skincare routine during the holidays can feel daunting, but we have some tips to make sure you show up glowing each day. 

Tip 1: Consistency is key 

When our days get busy, routines typically shift or go by the wayside. While we mean to take long soaks in the tub and make time for extensive facial massage chances are we won't have the extra time and that's ok.

While consistent exfoliation is important for radiant skin, so is embracing life and living. When your routine gets off track try to squeeze in your exfoliant while drinking your coffee in the morning or opt for a mini mask with our Daily Face Polish. Simply apply to dry skin and leave on for 3-5 minutes. From there rinse with warm water and apply your Evening Rose Facial Serum for skin nutrients and protection.

Tip 2: If consistency fails, stick with the non-negotiables

Regardless of how things go for the day, week or month, two things must remain true: cleanse and hydrate before bed. These two steps are nonnegotiable.

At a minimum cleanse and hydrate in the evenings to diminish inflammation and skin stressors while also supporting skin regeneration. We recommend cleansing with a pH balanced, bubbling cleanser to ensure products and environmental pollutants are lifted from skin while remaining gentle on the acid mantle. 

For the days you need to remove makeup without stripping skin we lean on this ritual:

Tip 3: Lots of Water

Many of us reach for hot tea or coffee when the temperatures plummet but water is still an essential this time of year. It not only flushes the body of toxins, assists with circulation and aids in digestion, it helps maintain skin’s plumpness and elasticity. With the beginning of the holiday season at our doorstep, so is the need for layers and heaters, all of which can dehydrate skin. We like to keep things festive and add a slice of orange or apple to our water this time of year to make this necessary consumption a little treat.
