Start With A Smooth Refined Base
Starting this week, use a face mask 2xs a week that not only hydrates but also refines and detoxes. Formulas with scientifically proven ingredients like clay and activated charcoal that help detox and purify your pores, and enzymes and fruit acid, which have an exfoliating action, will encourage a smooth refined complexion. Additionally, vitamin C is known for it brightening and evening out skin tone action. Such ingredients are used in Odacité’s Synergie Immediate Skin Perfecting Beauty Masque.
Stay Hydrated and Always Remember to Moisturize
This goes for all year round, however, in the winter, harsher climates often see lower humidity which requires an extra hydrating skin defense. Try to moisturize your skin at least twice a day, preferably right after a shower and cleanse/exfoliate. For an intensive treatment, use a targeting serum for hydration like our Po+R Hydration Serum Concentrate and layer it with your favorite moisturizing cream. It’s like giving your skin a big glass of water!
Of course don’t forget to drink enough water as it is the key to beautiful flawless skin. Drinking enough water not only hydrates, but also gets rid of waste and toxins, which are the main cause of dull skin. You want to make sure you are getting enough water, especially when faced with some of the most common dehydration culprits like alcohol, caffeine, salty foods, and tobacco. Infuse your water with fruit to add extra hydration :)
Take Advantage of Your Nights In
While getting holiday-ready is always fun, recovering from parties is a lot less exciting but necessary. When you have nights in, take advantage! This is your opportunity to get enough sleep, hydrate and our favorite - pamper! Make some chamomile tea to not only sip while you relax, but also to depuff your eyes. Use the tea bags over your eyes and then cover the rest of your face and neck with Manuka honey. This is the perfect moisturizing, soothing and relaxing treatment to do at home. You will not only be energized the next day, but also have a fresh plump complexion.
