6 Ways To Get Your Skin Through The Holiday Season

Your Skin For Party Season

The holiday season is in full swing and radiant, glowing skin is the ultimate beauty accessory. We often get asked how to keep skin looking at its best this time of year. Harsh winter weather, late nights and alcohol can leave our skin looking tired, dull and life-less.
Help is at hand however.

Here are 6 ways to help ensure your skin is looking tip-top for the party season.

1. Drink Water

We always advise our clients to drink 1.5 litres of water per day to help skin rejuvenation. This is even more important over a period where people generally consume more alcohol than usual. Alcohol dehydrates your skin making fine lines and wrinkles look worse than they actually are. It will also make you feel better and more energised as being permanently dehydrated is not only bad for your skin, but creates stress on the body.

2. Repair Your Lipid Barrier

Dull and lifeless skin is often due to a damaged lipid barrier. The lipid barrier is the top layer of the stratum corneum and is held together by lipids, ceramids and fatty acids, which help to protect yo skin from allergens, bacteria and irritants. If your skin feels sensitive, dull or flaky, chances are your lipid barrier has been impaired. Using good serums and moisturisers will help repair the barrier and protect against further damage. At Laser Chic we use and recommend our Award Winning Pharmacy Grade Janssen Cosmetics products for our bespoke clinical facial.

3. Exfoliate

The quickest way to get rid of dry flaky skin is to exfoliate. Here at Laser Chic we do not recommend using scrubs on the face, as these are too harsh. Instead we recommend using Fruit Acid (consisting of glycolic acid). Dead skin cells on our faces are held by a glue-like bond making our skin look dull and lifeless. Glycolic acid which comes from sugar cane, dissolves this glue-like cement, allowing dead skin cells to gently come away, leaving the skin looking smooth and radiant.

4. Get some sleep

Sleep is undoubtedly one of the single most important things you can do to improve your skin and overall health and immune system. Regular sleep of 7-8 hours each night, along with the other 5 tips in this blog article will keep your skin looking and feeling at its best.

5. Block up

Did you know that 90% of all the damage on our face (wrinkles, thread veins, pigmentation etc.) occurs between September and May, and not during the summer months as most people think. Winter rays are extremely damaging as UVA (which is the same strength all year round) penetrates deep into the dermis causing skin ageing. We recommend you wear Janssen Cosmetics’ Face Guard SPF 30 all year round. It contains photostable UVA and UVB filters and IR protection and are tolerated well even by sensitive skin. You can read more about our pharmacy grade sun protection.

6. Hang your head upside down

Sounds bonkers, but doing a yogic headstand (or simply hanging your head over the side of the bath or your bed if you prefer) sends blood rushing to our heads. Our hearts constantly pump blood against gravity around our bodies. Spending 3 minutes per day with your head upside down is believed to help improve skin complexion. I have to admit it doesn’t appeal, nor do I have the time to do this. Water, glycolic peels and good skincare products are my preferred choice.
