Reunions, smiles, family, dinners, gifts… Christmas is a time of emotions in which we take stock of the year that is ending and fill ourselves with resolutions for the new one that is about to begin. But they are also dates when we want to literally show our best side. Do you want to dazzle this Christmas with beautiful, luminous and young skin and not go unnoticed? We reveal to you the 5 tricks to take care of your skin that will make you the star of these holidays. To the nougat! 😉

1. The facial routine , the gift for your skin

Without a doubt, taking care of your skin is the best gift you can give yourself. And to your beauty. If you are consistent, you will see for yourself the results of following a facial care routine : a soft, luminous and youthful complexion. You know how to do it? In four steps, following this order:

  1. Clean: We’re not talking about washing your face with water and drying it with a towel. No. You are going to give your skin a few minutes, so forget about the clock and really pamper yourself. Cleanse in the morning and at night, each day, using an oil-based facial cleansing product. 
  2. Tone: Apply a facial toner with a cotton pad gently to your face and neck to close pores, refresh and balance the skin’s pH.
  3. Moisturize: After the toner it is the turn of the serum, the eye contour and, finally, the moisturizing cream. Choose one that contains ingredients such as glycerin, collagen, urea or hyaluronic acid to maintain skin’s water levels and delay the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles. At night, you can opt for creams with retinol, vitamin C or collagen. 
  4. Protect: In your morning facial routine you should include sunscreen , even if it is raining or cloudy. Do not forget!

2. Once a week, out with the old!

  • Sensitive: Cannabis oil will help you hydrate, soften redness and reinforce the barrier function so that your skin doesn’t spoil the party.

4. Lifting without surgery? Do facial gymnastics!

As the years go by, the skin loses firmness. Taking care of your skin and recovering it is possible by working the facial muscles and toning the face through specific exercises and massages. Microcurrent treatments are increasing in popularity thanks to their guaranteed results that are equivalent to those of a non-invasive face lift.

  • The FOREO trick: The FOREO BEAR device allows, through microcurrents, to increase blood circulation and oxygenation, thereby reducing wrinkles and expression lines. In addition, it tones the facial muscles to improve sagging, lifting and stylizing the face to help sculpt the features as well as firm and rejuvenate the skin. 

5. The Christmas menu for your skin

The tables are filled with toasts, roasts, sauces, sweets… Combine the festive menus with a balanced diet that includes at least two liters of water daily and foods that help in your facial care to keep your skin healthy and beautiful . You can’t miss out on your Christmas shopping list:

  • Vitamin C: fruits such as orange, tangerine, kiwi, strawberry and mango help improve collagen production.
  • Omega 3: vegetable oils, oily fish (sardines, tuna, anchovies and salmon), olive oil, nuts (especially walnuts), seafood (oysters, prawns, crabs…), avocado and vegetables green leaves (lettuce, spinach…) help improve skin hydration.
  • Vitamin A : carrots, pumpkin, spinach and broccoli help prevent the appearance of wrinkles and expression lines.
  • Vitamin E: very present in avocado and walnuts, it strengthens the skin, keeping it young for longer.
