5 Steps to Glowing Skin for a Holiday Party
Holiday party season is upon us and it’s the perfect time to give your skin a lit-from-within glow so you can show up radiant and ready to spread some holiday cheer. Of course, there are makeup tricks and highlighters that can boost your glow, but today we’re focusing on a few foundational tips to treat your skin first. And hey…the radiant results may be so incredible you opt for a more “au naturale” look for the party combined with your best glitzy outfit.
Cleanse – but with nourishing oils
The first step to achieving that holiday glow is to cleanse. Get rid of all the dirt, oil, and prior makeup that has been clogging your pores. We’re not talking about just any old cleanser here. We're talking about a cleansing balm rich in oils that will make you feel like you're washing away all your worries but without that stripped feeling – what’s left is nourished, supple and soft skin. The natural oils will effectively deep clean the pores, remove all makeup and balance oil but also properly hydrate skin with their emollient consistency. Don’t worry, they’re extremely effective and beneficial for all skin types, even an oilier or combo skin. (at least for PM use)

Exfoliate away the dullness
Now that your face is properly cleaned, it's time to exfoliate away all the dullness and dead skin cells. Think of it as giving your skin a fresh start, like hitting the reset button. All it takes is 1-2x/per week and you can opt for a manual (grainy) exfoliator or an AHA (acid) based exfoliation. The result? Instantly radiant, healthy and glowing skin that is ready to soak up all those nurturing skincare formulas in the following steps.

Mask it up!
Next up, it's time to give your skin some extra love with a face mask. This is where the magic happens. Choose a mask that is tailored to your skin's needs, whether it's hydration, brightening, or firming. Put that mask on, sit back, and relax. You deserve it!

Apply a Brightening Serum
To enhance your skin's natural radiance, apply a brightening serum. Look for serums that contain natural glow enhancing ingredients like vitamin C, which can help even out your skin tone and reduce the appearance of dark spots. Gently massage the serum onto your face and neck, focusing on areas that need extra brightening.

With a little love and care, you'll be the star of the holiday party and turn heads wherever you go.
