Over-indulging on sugar-laden foods and snacks, drinking extra cocktails, and sleeping three hours only during the holiday season is all fun and games until its back to basics, and your skin is screaming neglect!
However, the good news is that you don't have to live with the bad decisions you made this festive season. With a little effort, it is possible to get back that beautiful glow you had before the holidays. In that breath, here is how to detox your skin from the holidays.
- Get Back on Your Sleep Schedule
The holidays are all about staying up at your childhood’s best friend’s house drinking wine or playing Jenga and catching up on your favorite childhood adventures until late in the night. But as mentioned, it's all fun and games until January is knocking, and you can't get rid of puffy eyes and dark circles.
Luckily, all you need to do is get back on your sleep schedule. Sleeping enough helps give your skin cells time to rejuvenate and repair themselves. Also, try sleeping on your back and while at it, ensure you use the Elon eye cream to reduce the dark circles and ease the puffiness.
- Take Lots of Water and Stay Moisturized
We know you've heard this more times than you can recall, but we'll say it’s up to you once again. Water helps flush out the toxins that you've been loading up on during the holiday. It is the best and most natural way to get those pore-clogging toxins out of your system.
Taking lots of water will not only help keep your skin hydrated but also will help with your digestion. If you can’t stand the plain taste of water, then add a piece of lemon, a slice of cucumber, or a mint leaf to spice it up.
Also, use a gentle facial cleanser and apply a moisturizer before you leave the house and in the evening before you sleep. Doing this regularly and combining it with the tips on our list will have your skin back to normal in no time.
- Use a Face Serum and Products with Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid offers intense skin hydration, and because it boasts excellent moisture-retaining abilities, it also activates collagen production. This means that it keeps your skin hydrated and at the same time, slows down the development of wrinkles.
This acid is produced naturally by our bodies but tends to deplete as we age. So, on top of a quality moisturizer, get the Elon hyaluronic acid serum. Look for products with the same ingredient to detox your skin after the holidays.
- Don’t Forget Your Diet
Radiant, baby-soft skin starts from within. If you continue eating like you are on holiday, then your skin will show this to the world. In other words, you may try out all the tips above, but if you keep on indulging on acne-trigger foods such as dairy, sugar-laden snacks and coffee during your detox, then all your hard work will be for nothing. For these few days that you'll be detoxing, avoid such foods, and incorporate fiber and antioxidant-rich foods such as fruits and veggies and probiotics in your diet.
As you can see from above, detoxing your skin after the holidays doesn’t have to break the bank. You simply need to get back to your healthy habits and get yourself quality skincare products. However, just because you finally get rid of the eye bags doesn’t mean you stop. The key to keeping that skin glowing is regularly doing the above.
