Skin Survival Guide for Holiday Parties

Skin Survival Guide for Holiday Parties

Tis the season of parties and gatherings where you’ll spend all night celebrating the holidays with friends and family. The last thing you want to deal with is a skin emergency that ruins the night. This skin survival guide includes the holiday skin care necessities that you should bring with you to every party this season.

Keep lips hydrated for under the mistletoe. Dry, chapped lips ruin just about every look but you don’t always have time to touch up your makeup when you’re hopping from party to party. Keep FixMySkin Healing Lip Balm Vanilla with 1% Hydrocortisone with you at all times to relieve dryness and keep lips soft and smooth.

Refresh parched skin with a facial mist. If you’re enjoying a few cocktails and glasses of wine at the party, it can leave your skin dehydrated. Our skin survival guide for the holidays always contains Caudalie Organic Grape Water, which you can spritz on your skin anytime it feels tight or dry. The refreshing formula gives skin a boost of moisture and your makeup a glowing, dewy finish.

Pamper your hands and cuticles with a rich cream. When you go to shake hands and give hugs, the last thing you want is for people to feel a dry, rough texture. Keep a holiday skin care essential such as Dr. Hauschka Hydrating Hand Cream in your bag and apply it whenever your hands are feeling rough. The natural extracts provide a fresh scent and don’t leave a greasy feeling.

Touch up makeup in a pinch. Makeup mishaps happen to the best of us and any good survival guide will include tools to help touch up mistakes. jane iredale Dot the i Makeup Remover Swabs are cotton swabs with makeup remover in them. Simply break the tube and wipe away wayward eyeliner, mascara or lipstick.
