Get ready to shine bright this holiday season with our expert Christmas beauty tips. From festive makeup looks to skincare secrets, we’ve got you covered on how to stay fresh and fabulous throughout all the festivities. Discover our top recommendations to ensure you look and feel your best during this magical time of the year
Our top Christmas beauty tips will help you to enjoy all the festivities and stay looking and feeling fresh.
As we immerse ourselves in the festive spirit of Christmas, it’s important to be mindful of the potential consequences on our skin. Indulging in highly processed foods and refined carbohydrates, which are often synonymous with this season, can lead to mild inflammation in the body and exacerbate skin issues like acne. Additionally, the consumption of sugar can damage collagen fibres, contributing to the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin.
However, there’s a simple way to combat these effects: striking a balance by incorporating a healthy dose of fruits and vegetables alongside those tempting chocolate treats. The powerful antioxidants found in plant-based foods help neutralize free radicals caused by unhealthy indulgences, allowing your skin to radiate with a fresh and rejuvenated glow.
Hydrating your body with an ample amount of water or refreshing herbal teas is a vital practice with numerous benefits. Not only does it boost your energy levels and support proper digestion, but it also plays a significant role in enhancing the appearance of your skin. Adequate water intake keeps your skin plump and radiant, while effectively purging out toxins that can contribute to blemishes, wrinkles, and oily skin.
This becomes especially crucial during the holiday season when indulgences are more frequent. So remember, sipping on hydrating fluids throughout the day is not only refreshing but also an essential step to maintain a fresh and vibrant complexion.
While you enjoy a peaceful slumber, your skin undergoes a rejuvenating process, where cells enter a regeneration mode to replace damaged and dead cells with fresh ones. Occasional late nights may be manageable, but it’s essential to be mindful of the consequences that arise from consistently disrupting this restorative cycle. The more frequently you subject your body to sleep deprivation, the harsher the impact on your skin will be.
Prioritising quality sleep allows your skin to fully benefit from its natural regenerative abilities, ensuring a healthier and more vibrant complexion.
During the festive period, if you choose to wear makeup, it’s crucial to remember the golden rule—take it off before bed and let your skin breathe! Even if you haven’t applied any makeup, cleansing your face at the end of the day remains essential to remove accumulated toxins. If you’re seeking a convenient and time-saving solution, look no further than the reusable make up remover cloth by Dearest Fannie.
With just a splash of water, this innovative cloth effortlessly wipes away your makeup, leaving your skin feeling fresh and revitalised.
Indulge in a luxurious at-home facial and pamper yourself! To enhance your experience, I’ve included links to my personal favourite products. However, feel free to customise the routine with your own preferred skincare gems!
Find somewhere quiet with water, put on some relaxing music and use the following products in this order:
Refresh and rejuvenate your skin by treating it to a luxurious cleanse. Experience the transformative power of the Antipodes Hallelujah Lime & Patchouli Cleanser, which has quickly become one of my personal favourites.
To effectively remove the day’s impurities, gently apply the cleanser onto your skin, allowing its purifying properties to work their magic. For best results, massage the cleanser using upward motions, applying a bit of pressure to increase circulation and promote a radiant complexion.
Finally, rinse thoroughly to reveal clean, revitalised skin that feels refreshed and renewed.
Follow by incorporating a nourishing face scrub. I personally recommend the Sukin Super Greens face scrub for its exceptional qualities. Infused with jojoba beads and bamboo, this exfoliant offers a gentle yet effective way to remove dead skin cells while promoting sustainability. The use of these natural ingredients ensures a delicate and eco-friendly exfoliation experience, minimising waste and leaving you with a renewed complexion.
For optimal results, you can apply the face scrub onto either dry or wet skin. If you desire a more intensive exfoliation, I suggest using it on dry skin. Massage the scrub thoroughly into your skin, allowing the nourishing ingredients to unveil a smoother, healthier complexion. Rinse well to reveal refreshed and revitalised skin.
To achieve the utmost level of cleanliness for your skin, it’s beneficial to perform a second cleanse. Applying your cleanser once more will ensure that any lingering impurities are effectively removed, leaving your skin exceptionally clean and refreshed.
Take a small amount of your preferred cleanser and gently massage it onto your skin, paying close attention to areas that may need extra cleansing. This second cleanse will provide a thorough purification, helping to maintain the health and radiance of your complexion.
By incorporating this additional step into your skincare routine, you can be confident that your skin is receiving the optimal level of cleansing, promoting a clear and revitalised appearance.
Create a refreshing and invigorating experience by closing your eyes and applying a toner to your face and neck.
Gently mist the toner onto your skin, allowing the fine droplets to envelop your complexion. For an added boost, I recommend using upwards hand strokes to massage the toner into your skin, promoting circulation and enhancing absorption.
Among our wide range of toner options, the White Rabbit Orange and Aloe toner stands out for its crisp and uplifting scent. This particular toner offers a delightful sensory experience while providing the necessary hydration and balance your skin craves.
Alternatively use the UpCircle face toner infused with BHA salicylic acid to gently cleanse and exfoliate, while also containing hydrating hyaluronic acid to leave your skin feeling hydrated and lifted. Say hello to a brighter, smoother complexion with this powerful and nourishing formula.
Incorporating this step into your skincare routine not only helps to refine the appearance of your skin but also prepares it for the subsequent steps of your regimen, leaving you with a fresh and revitalised complexion.
Indulge in a self-care moment by treating your skin to a luxurious facial mask. Whether you prefer a clay mask or a cotton sheet mask, take this time to relax and enjoy the serene atmosphere or lose yourself in a captivating book for 15 to 20 minutes.
For an extra boost of hydration, I recommend trying the Beauty Pro Avocado Sheet Mask. As the temperature fluctuates between hot indoors and cold outdoors, our skin often craves additional moisture. This particular mask is specially formulated to provide intense hydration, leaving your skin feeling nourished and revitalised.
After removing the mask, gently massage any remaining serum into your neck and décolletage to ensure no precious hydration goes to waste. This will extend the benefits of the mask, leaving your entire upper body with a healthy glow.
Sit back, unwind, and let the mask work its magic, providing your skin with the pampering it deserves.
Complete your skincare routine by applying a moisturiser that suits your needs. For a night time facial, it is recommended to use a night cream specifically formulated to provide extra nourishment and hydration while you sleep.
If you’re looking to indulge in a luxurious experience, consider incorporating a facial oil before applying your moisturiser. By adding a few drops of facial oil, you can enhance the moisturising effects and give your skin an extra boost of hydration.
Massage the moisturiser and facial oil (if applicable) into your skin using gentle, circular motions. This helps to promote absorption and ensure that the products are evenly distributed across your complexion.
As for personal favourites, there are several options to choose from depending on your skin type and preferences. Feel free to explore different moisturisers and oils to find the ones that work best for you and deliver the desired results.
Day Creams: UpCircle Moisturiser with Vitamin E, Flawless Ultimate Beauty Balm, Rugged Nature Orange & Bergamot Moisturiser & White Rabbit Skincare Coconut & Rosehip Calming Cream
Night Creams: White Rabbit Skincare Rose & Orange Night Cream, Sukin Purely Ageless Restorative Night Cream, Sukin Moisture Restoring Night Cream, UpCircle Night Cream with Hyaluronic Acid
Facial Oils & Serums UpCircle Facial Serum, Eco by Sonya glory oil or White Rabbit Olive and Avocado oil
When applying any skincare product to your face, it’s important to follow a gentle and upward motion technique. As gravity naturally pulls our face downward throughout the day, it’s best to avoid adding unnecessary downward pressure during application.
To begin, apply your oil or moisturiser across your nose, then glide your fingertips along your cheekbones in an upward direction, moving towards your ears. Continue this motion, gradually working closer to the delicate skin around your eyes. Next, repeat the same upward motion below your cheekbones.
For your chin, bring your hands together in a praying position, touching the bottom and middle of your chin. Apply gentle pressure and move your hands in an upward motion, gliding along your jawline towards your ears. Adjust the pressure according to your preference.
To address your forehead, place the palms of your hands on your forehead with your fingertips in the middle. Then, gently pull your fingers outwards towards your hairline, following the contours of your forehead.
For an added sense of relaxation and stress relief, there are acupressure points located under your eyebrows. Apply gentle pressure to these points starting near the bridge of your nose and move outward towards the end of your eyebrows.
By adhering to this technique, you’ll promote circulation, enhance absorption and help defy the effects of gravity, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Remember, perfection shouldn’t be your goal, and it’s important not to be too hard on yourself. While the information provided above sets a gold standard, Christmas, above all, should be about fun and enjoyment whenever possible. So, if you happen to slip up, please don’t beat yourself up for it!
Stress and exhaustion can weaken the immune system and potentially worsen skin issues, but more importantly, they can make you feel down. Instead, try shifting your focus towards spending quality time with loved ones and being present for both them and yourself.
Wishing you a joyful and Merry Christmas from all of us at Greener Beauty xx
