How to Detoxify and Rejuvenate Your Skin After the Holidays

How to Detoxify and Rejuvenate Your Skin After the Holidays Christmas and New Year holidays are always a welcome distraction from the routine of everyday life, and people try to make the most of these days, celebrating and partying as much as they can. Unfortunately, indulging in delicious food and alcohol, staying up late and neglecting your skincare routine can lead to disastrous results for your skin. How to detoxify and rejuvenate your skin after the holidays?

The holidays are generally a happy time of the year, but they can be pretty stressful for your skin. All that worrying about holiday preparations, eating too much, drinking alcohol, partying until the wee hours, wearing way more makeup than you would normally do and being too tired to remove it before going to bed take a toll on your skin. As a result, it may become dull, lose its firmness and elasticity, become oily or, on the contrary, too dry and flaky. That’s why you should give your skin some extra TLC after the holidays in order to restore its healthy and youthful appearance.

Specifically for this task, many cosmetic brands produce skincare products with an instant effect that are designed to detoxify, revitalise and refresh your skin after the holidays. As rule, such products are formulated with natural plant ingredients that have a wide range of skin benefits and have been thoroughly selected to produce an instantly visible effect. Here are some common skin problems that you may face after the holidays and cosmetic ingredients that will help you to cope with them.

Dark Circles Under the Eyes

This is one of the most common problems that people face after the holidays because, despite all their hopes to catch up on sleep, they often stay up late, and their sleep regimen goes to hell. So the first thing you need to do to get rid of under-eye circles is return to your normal sleep regimen and get your 7 or 8 hours of rest and beauty sleep every night. In addition, you should take proper care of the delicate skin around your eyes, using special products. Most eye care products contain ingredients that improve microcirculation and strengthen capillary walls, as well as lighten, moisturise and nourish the skin.

Common ingredients that can be found in eye creams, gels and other products include ginkgo biloba, horse chestnut, gotu kola, sweet clover, grapeseed oil, caffeine, blueberry, arnica, niacinamide (vitamin B3), retinol, vitamin C, licorice root, peptides, etc. They improve blood circulation, narrow the vessels, relieve inflammation, boost the skin’s firmness and elasticity, reduce the appearance of dark circles, lighten the skin, and prevent red and puffy eyes.

Acne and Comedones

After the holidays, some people suffer from acne, blackheads, whiteheads and other breakouts caused by eating too much fatty foods and sugar, as well as consuming too much alcohol. Besides, many people neglect to cleanse their skin properly during the holidays, which only exacerbates the problem.

So what should you do to make your skin clear again? The answer is actually pretty simple: just stick to a proper skincare routine that includes cleansing, toning and moisturising. To eliminate breakouts, you need to use special products for problem skin that contain antibacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredients, such as tea tree oil, aloe vera, calendula, chamomile, alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), zinc oxide, panthenol, allantoin, niacinamide, etc. But stay away from alcohol-based cleansers and toners because they only dehydrate the skin and make it produce more oil.

Dull Complexion

A dull, lifeless, tired, grey complexion is another problem that many people face after the holidays. Due to exposure to various harmful factors and lack of proper skincare regimen, the skin looses moisture and elasticity, its cells receive less oxygen and nutrients than normal, and dead cells accumulate on the surface of the skin, which leads to it looking dull and unhealthy. To restore your healthy and glowing complexion, you need skincare products that deeply cleanse and exfoliate the skin, actively hydrate it, fight pigmentation, provide the skin with vitamins and minerals, and improve blood circulation.

The most beneficial ingredients for your complexion include glycolic acid, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), hyaluronic acid, citrus essential oils, retinol, B vitamins, caffeine, aloe vera leaf juice, tocopherol (vitamin E), kaolin (cosmetic clay), sodium alginate, and activated carbon.

Dry and Flaky Skin

If you drink too much alcohol and not enough water during the holidays, your skin loses moisture, becomes dry and begins to flake. To cope with this problem, you need to replenish moisture in the epidermis and lock it in. The best ingredients for dry and flaky skin include hyaluronic acid, green tea extract, aloe vera extract, cucumber extract, panthenol, glycerine, vitamins A, C and E, squalane, and carrier oils (shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, sweet almond oil, etc.).
