Is your skin ready for the festive season?

How our Luminance drip will have you summer ready in no time!

It’s only a few weeks left till the holidays and our stress levels are at their peak – last minute shopping needs to be done and someone’s got to eat all that Christmas cake. Staying on top of our skin care regimen can be somewhat of an afterthought amid all the holiday hustle.  Not to mention what the extra sun, drinking and pigging out does to our faces.

The last thing you want to think about this holiday are zits, sun spots, or dull and dry. We have put together a few ways to help you avoid skin-related drama this holiday.

6 simple ways to take care of your skin this festive season

1. Apply sunscreen daily

We know, we know—you’ve heard it a million times, but wearing sunscreen really is one of the best and easiest ways to protect your skin from cell-damaging UVA rays. According to Doris Day – a dermatologist in New York, “Ninety percent of wrinkles are from sun exposure.” So grab a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen when heading out this holiday.

2. Cleanse before bed

Sometimes it feels a little torturous. You’ve had a long night out celebrating the holiday season with all your mates, and all you want to do is jump in bed. But trust us, those extra 5 minutes will save your skin. Leaving make-up and dirt on your face doesn’t just clog pores; it can cause excessive dryness and even breakouts. According to New York-based dermatologist Dennis Gross, “This is when cells need nutrients the most, and when their anti-ageing benefits have maximum impact.”

3. Keep hydrated

Overindulgence in delicious foods and alcohol is often a given with the festive season. We can help combat overeating, dehydration and toxin build-up by drinking water. Drinking enough water will help clear the toxins that cause inflammation and blemishes. This will leave you with healthier fuller-looking skin.

4. Have a cold shower

According to an article by Medical Daily “One of the most natural ways to maintain your appearance is with cold showers. Hot water has the tendency to dry out our skin, so it’s best to use cold water. Cold water will tighten your cuticles and pores, and prevent clogging. Cold water can “seal” your pores, preventing dirt from getting in.”

5. Don’t forget your veggies

The festive season is a time to let loose and enjoy that delicious holiday feast.

According to Dr Nigma Talib, the reason we suffer from common skin problems like breakouts, puffy eyes and redness, all comes down to our diets. We are not saying don’t enjoy yourself, but try to maintain a balance, by adding healthier alternatives and extra veggies to your plate.

6. Prepare before your holiday begins

Healthy radiant skin really is a process and doesn’t just occur overnight. Our skin is our largest organ and has many important duties, therefore requiring a lot of extra attention. Our Luminance drip is an effective and efficient way to give back to your body and your skin by giving it the nutrients it needs to protect it today and ensure beautiful glowing skin tomorrow and in the future.

What’s in the Luminance drip?

Our Luminance Drip is a skin brightening and wellness treatment that contains 3000mg of glutathione and Vitamin C. These key nutrients enter directly into your bloodstream, which allows for higher doses of vitamins and nutrients to be absorbed by the body quicker and more effectively.

The Glutathione used in the Luminance Drip benefits the skin by boosting overall health. Since it is an antioxidant, it neutralises and eliminates the free radicals that damage the skin at the cellular level causing ageing and discolouration.

Vitamin C and your skin

The Luminance Drip also contains vitamin C which is an antioxidant that helps regenerate other antioxidants in the body. Vitamin C is used in the production of collagen -a lack of collagen makes the skin dull and lifeless. Vitamin C also increases the formation of elastin, which thickens, protects, and heals the skin cells. The thickening effect helps retain moisture, increases the skin circulation, and plumps up the skin surface.

The festive season is when you really want to be looking your party best all the way until the New year and beyond. Book your Luminance drip today to get your skin looking and feeling great this holiday.
