Get, Set, Prep Your Skin For Festive Season!
Here are some expert-recommended tips for healthy skin for this festive season.
1. Deep Cleanse
Dirt and oil can get accumulated deep inside your pores. It would be best to use a deep cleansing facial wash twice daily to get rid of this. If you stay outdoors for long hours, then dirt, dust and makeup can clog the skin's pores, resulting in pimples and acne. Using a mild cleanser will not be enough. Choose a cleanser-Thriveco’s Super Hydrating Foaming Facial Cleanser that penetrates deep into the skin to remove dirt and impurities. Use a toner- Thriveco’s Pore Minimizing Ultimate Toner to minimize the appearance of large, open pores.
Dead cells, dirt and debris accumulate on the skin surface, making your skin look dull, dry and dehydrated. Getting rid of the grime and gunk is essential to make your skin look bright and radiant. Exfoliate your skin twice a week; this helps to slough off all the dead skin cells and debris from the skin's surface. If you have oily skin, you can exfoliate 2-3 times a week; for people with normal to dry skin, exfoliating once a week is enough.

It makes your skin look plump, eliminating early signs of aging. Look for a moisturizer that has a sun protection formula 30 or higher for additional sun protection. Hydration is considered an elixir for your skin, which helps with myriad skincare problems. Make sure you moisturize your skin regularly.

4. Face Mask
Applying a hydrating and nourishing face mask is an essential step in skincare. Choose a mask based on your skin type and concern. Face masks target specific skincare issue, giving you problem-free radiant skin. There are so many options for face masks that you may find it difficult to choose from the myriad skincare product. To maintain the balance, we recommend using both clay and sheet masks. Clay masks can remove dirt and impurities from the deepest layers of skin, while sheet masks keep your skin hydrated.
5. Eye Cream/Gel
Your eyes have to be taken care of as much as your face. Your delicate skin around the eyes should be handled carefully. The area under your eyes is susceptible to dryness and wrinkles. Even if your skin looks radiant, dark circles and puffy eyes can make it look tired. Using an under-eye cream or gel containing hydrating ingredients keeps the skin under your eyes well-hydrated and nourished.
6. Lip Care
Lips can become dry and chapped, especially during winter, when the weather is dry and cold. Apply almond oil to your lips before going to bed every night. Apply sugar scrub on your lips to slough away dry skin cells.
7. Facial Massage
Treating your face with a facial massage oil every night before bed is beneficial in adding glow to your skin. Face oil, such as almond oil, argan oil or jojoba oil, is vital in keeping your skin hydrated and well-nourished. Face oil is rich in essential nutrients such as Omega 3, Vitamin E and other antioxidants which fight free radicals responsible for damaging your skin. In addition to improving blood circulation, facial massage also promotes lymphatic drainage, making your skintight and firm. Additionally, it helps you to achieve a brighter complexion. Massage the oil in an upward direction to allow better absorption.
8. Facial Serum
You can also use a facial serum twice daily as a lightweight serum- ThriveCo’s Radiance Serum that is easily absorbed into your skin, nourishing and hydrating the skin from deep within. This radiance serum has powerful skin brightening ingredients such as niacinamide, azelaic acid and kojic acid which reduces uneven skin tone and brightens your skin. Look for skin-friendly ingredients in your facial serum, such as hyaluronic acid, and powerful antioxidants, such as Vitamin A, C, E, retinol and niacinamide. Experts recommend using a retinol serum to erase wrinkles and fine lines. Nothing works better than a jade roll for better penetration of serum into deeper layers of the skin.
9. Regular exercise
Most of our favorite celebrities have radiant and flawless skin. It doesn’t come naturally; they are putting in the effort to attain it. Regular exercise eliminates toxins from your body, adding a natural glow to your skin. Experts say the best way to attain healthy, problem-free skin is to sweat it out.
10. No compromise on hydration
Drink 8-10 glasses of water per day to keep your body hydrated. Increase the intake of fresh fruit juices. Hot beverages such as tea and coffee should be avoided as much as possible, as it can dehydrate your skin. Incorporating adequate amounts of water helps improve your gut health, digestion, and metabolism. Your body feels more energetic and rejuvenated, which has a positive effect on your skin as well.
11. Healthy diet
Avoid junk food and fried food items, which can lead to breakouts and pimples. The high sugar and oil content in junk food can build up toxins in your body, affecting your skin, making your skin dry, dull and prone to acne and pimples.
12. Much Needed Beauty Sleep
Maintaining your body and skin health requires quality sleep. You should get at least 8-10 hours of sleep. When you sleep, your body's repair mechanism turns on, and its repair heals all the damaged cells. Lack of sleep can directly affect the appearance of your skin, leading to dull skin and dark circles under the eyes.
