This holiday season - Get glowing skin naturally!

glowing skin in winter
Having great skin plays a huge role in the sparkle that makes you shine with beauty and confidence, and the holiday season is approaching fast bringing with it a slew of parties and social gatherings that can make even the most graceful serial party girl looking tired and dull without a little help.

In addition to the busy holiday season, winter can leave skin feeling dry and parched. The lower humidity from dropping temperatures will dry the air and dehydrate skin.

Holiday festivities can cause us to leave make up on for several hours and keep skin from breathing and clogging pores, leading to blemishes, irritated skin and sometimes further exacerbate skin concerns – oily, shiny skin as the epidermis tries to revive by overproducing sebum to compensate and protect itself.

Get ready for the party season with these beauty tips to get glowing skin naturally :
  1. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize: Don’t forget that alcohol is dehydrating as is the caffeine we reach for after a late night - rejuvenate skin with tons of moisture. Drinking water frequently and keeping skin moisturized throughout the day will go a long way to enhance your epidermal strength. You’ll look more rested and fresh as you party to the wee hours of the morning. We generally moisturize in the morning and leave for work. This season brings after-work events that have us touching up quickly and rushing out. That leaves skin under make up for hours without new moisture. Feed skin throughout the day with little moisture mists. Not only does a little spritz keep skin hydrated, it gives a dewy feel and helps make-up set better. Try carrying a little spray of rosewater in your purse and spritz during the day. Pat it dry with a tissue and go.
  2. Plump it up with anti-oxidants and extra Omega-3 fatty acids: Don’t skimp on those holiday berries and cinnamon apples to keep free-radical damage at bay. Dry, winter skin will need more fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids help fortify the cell membrane and enhance its ability to retain water, leading to softer, supple skin. Involve these healthy fatty acids in your diet with fish (tuna, salmon) or include walnuts and flaxseed in your diet (if you’re vegan) to hydrate skin from the inside.
  3. The magic of natural moisturizers: Your skin absorbs approximately 60% of what you put on it. So, what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it. Natural, organic moisturizers have no harsh preservatives, fillers or thickeners so each dollop goes a long way. As an added bonus, they do not irritate or dehydrate skin with alcohols. They pull the magical healing power of botanicals to hydrate and revive skin to look and feel luminous without all that make-up.
    Vienne by Subtle Green includes a line of luxurious and natural moisturizers with sumptuous essential oils that smell heavenly as they revive your skin. Essential oils are simply delicious skin food and work to balance and rejuvenate skin. Most have aromatherapeutic benefits and you might just feel your spirits lift with confidence.
    Try Vienne Intense Hydration Cream to keep your warm glow through the cooler temperatures.
The holidays are a magical time of year, full of elegance, beauty and warmth – don’t forget to give your skin the gift of that same experience.
