Start the new year looking fresh and fabulous with these party-proof skincare tips:
- One place stress can make an appearance is the eyes in the form of dark circles and puffiness. Dr. Colgrove recommends making sure you stay well hydrated, drinking 1 to 2 liters of water a day, as a way to keep eyes looking fresh and bright. Keeping alcohol and salt intake down (which can be a challenge this time of year with all the goodies everywhere), makes a big difference as well, reducing water retention.
- Some existing skin conditions such as psoriasis, rosacea, acne and eczema can be exacerbated when the pressure it on. Check in with yourself often to measure how stressed you’re feeling. If you feel tension creeping in, take some time to give yourself the care and attention you need. Exercise, rest, quiet time and relaxing activities are important to incorporate balance into the hubbub of the festivities.
- Be preventive. If you’re planning to attend or throw a bunch of parties, take some proactive steps to preserve your glow. Laser treatments can help, as can topical creams and serums, especially those with Vitamin C or retinol. Also switch to a richer, more emollient moisturizer for increased moisture.
- If all that New Year’s merriment leaves you with puffy eyes the next morning, reach for a cold pack. Leave it in place for just a few minutes for quick, soothing relief. Keep in mind sleeping with your head elevated can help minimize puffiness the next morning.
