With the end of 2022 nearby, the festive season of indulging in delicious foods and large amounts of champagne is fast approaching. Although we would love our skin to be looking its best at these events, our social calendars are also jam packed with travel, stress and late nights. This end of year routine can soon catch up to us and take a toll on our skin. Breakouts, puffy under eyes and dullness are tell-tale signs of party exhaustion, increased alcohol consumption and sleeping with our makeup on!

Here are a few tips we recommend to ensure you’re keeping your skin in tip top shape this party season…

  • Pre Party Treatment: Microdermabrasion

The benefits of a microdermabrasion include deeply exfoliating the skin by gently removing dead skin cells and clearing the pores revealing soft, smooth and radiant skin. This treatment is safe and effective on most skin types and is perfect for the pre party season because it has no downtime!

Sit back, close your eyes and enjoy a deep relaxing cleanse using our evolveMD products, then take delight in a thorough exfoliation using our diamond tip applicator. This will then be followed by a glorious concoction of serums and moisturisers. Wanting more? This microdermabrasion treatment also has the benefit of an add on in order to enhance your results. Our choice of treatment masks and vitamin infusions can be tailored to your skin’s needs and our yellow light therapy is a great way to enhance your body’s natural cellular recovery, promoting skin rejuvenation. The yellow LED is also a great stand alone treatment!

These quick and easy treatments are also great to do in between your events!

  • Regular exfoliating: evolveMD products

Exfoliation is important because it ensures your skin is smooth and clear ready for your makeup to be applied. Chemical exfoliants such as alpha and beta hydroxy acids (AHA and BHA) are one of the safest ways to gently decongest pores. There is a common misconception that these ingredients will make your skin flake and peel however our gentle at home evolveMD products are perfect for those who need a fast acting gentle exfoliation.

Our ‘Enzyme AHA Peel’ promotes deep hydration, reduces oil, and brightens the skin. This product contains pomegranate which is a powerful antioxidant that brightens and clears the skin. Pop this on 1-2 times a week at night time for 10-15 minutes, once you have washed it off continue applying the rest of your evolveMD products. Our ‘Acne Clear’ is a potent acne clearing formula with medical grade exfoliants and skin renewing actives to accelerate skin regeneration. This product can also be used to spot treat those nasty pimples that may pop up right before your special event! You can spot treat up to twice a day allowing the blemish to dry.

Using these evolveMD products at home during the party season will allow you to reach shiny and sleek skin!

  • Keep Hydrated! 

It is crucial to stay hydrated especially during the holiday season. This is because drinking water regulates body temperature, delivers nutrients to cells, keeps your organs functioning properly and most importantly rejuvenates your skin! For every cocktail or champagne you drink, follow it with a glass of water! Not only will this help minimise the effects of a hangover but it will also help flush out toxins that are damaging your skin.

Another way to stay hydrated is the use of hyaluronic acid. Our body naturally produces hyaluronic acid to ensure it stays hydrated however these hydration levels can be affected from environmental and lifestyle factors. To maintain these hydration levels, applying our evolveMD ‘Advanced Hydrating Serum’ will assist in boosting and retaining moisture and elasticity.

  • Beauty Sleep! 

The festive season involves longer days and later bedtimes, it interferes with the timing of our habits as well as our routines. When our routines crumble, our sleep suffers! If you don’t get enough ‘beauty sleep’, the ageing process will accelerate leaving your skin dull and dehydrated, which will also then welcome an increase in fine lines and wrinkles. Sleep is the time when your body repairs itself. While sleeping, your body’s blood flow increases which rebuilds collagen, repairs UV sun damage and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.

Here are some helpful hints for a better sleep:

– Removing makeup, oil and impurities from the day using our evolveMD daily cleansers. – Switching off devices 30 minutes before bed time.

– Have your room quiet and dark.

– Avoid having heavy meals, alcohol and caffeine right before bed time.

– Ensuring you have a quality sleep during this festive season is the best natural way to maintain healthy glowing skin!

With the festive season slowly sneaking up on us, it is important to be mindful and consider a few of our skin care tips to ensure you have a bright and fresh complexion for all of your events. Glowing skin is in! It is also vital that we continue to follow these tips all year round so we reach long term health for our skin!
