It’s almost time for us to say a fond farewell to 2014. But before we do that, take a look at these words-of-advice and see if your skin is in tip top condition. Hey, if we’re going to party, we might as well do it in a fabulous way, right?
Exfoliate Your Skin
Exfoliation ensures that the accumulated dead skin cells on your skin are removed, revealing new and radiant skin immediately. Try the Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-aging Treatment Boosting Cleanser. It is a daily cleanser with exfoliating beads, and helps protect and correct skin from environmental aggressors.
Apply a Mask Everyday Till the Party
Mask application is the best way to indulge your skin with needed goodness. If you’re hoping to make tired and dull-looking skin more radiant, consider the Dermalogica AGE Smart® Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque. Jam-packed with vitamins and algae extract, it repairs and moisturises fatigued skin, giving it a crease-resistant and silky look.
But if you’re suffering from a breakout and need the pimples to clear before the event, use an Aloe Vera mask instead. Aloe vera is known to soothe and prevent pimples, and the Aloe Mask from the My Beauty Diary series does a really good job in that.
Put Cucumbers (or Cold Metal Spoons) on Eyes
Do you have puffy eyes? Those late night hours must be haunting you. Fortunately, solving this knotty problem is going to be a walk in the park. Simply put 2 metal spoons in the fridge for 5 minutes and press the backs against your eyes. Little tip: go easy on the spoons. After all, our eyes are extremely sensitive. If you’re not too fond of the idea, you can also put cucumber slices over your eyes for 10 minutes. After this, you’re gonna have eyes as mild as a gazelle’s.
This is for the natural beauty junkie who loves anything DIY. A yogurt mask works wonder for sensitive skin. When our skin gets too dry, it cracks and peels. If that happens, put your DIY chops to the test and make a face mask from scratch. Natural yogurt is extremely effective. Not only does it tastes good, it also works wonders on the skin by reducing the appearance of redness and tightening the look of pores. Leave it on for about 20 minutes and rinse it off with lukewarm water. It will instantly brighten the skin.
Slap on Facial Serum
Stress and sleep tend to have adverse effects on our delicate skin. Rest assure, it’s not too late to rectify it! Before going to bed every night, slap on some facial serum on your face. Try the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair, which is blended with a ChronoluxCB™ Technology formula that “maximises the power of skin’s natural nighttime renewal.” Oil-free and dermatologically-tested, it’s suitable for all skin types. Here’s a toast to a bright future (pun intended)!
