Let’s kickstart with the best tips to get ready for your celebrations! Here are some not to be missed steps that are needed to be followed before you get on with the party. Read on to know more!
1. Give your skin that extra oomph!
Amidst festivities, socializing and chores, it can often get difficult to find time to sneak away for a relaxing and rejuvenating facial. But facials are typically elaborate and time consuming, and hard to fit into busy schedules. But don’t worry, the good news is that there are some quicker tips you can follow. Try and find ten to fifteen minutes to use a hydrating face mask on your face just before you start prepping for a party. This takes away the signs of fatigue and puffiness from your face and makes your skin feel glowing. In the absence of a sheet mask, you can use any hydrating moisturizer or gel as per your skin type and lather it on your face and leave it to do its job for ten to fifteen minutes. The difference will be noticeable!
2. Ensure protection from the sun
In case you have plans for the day, no matter what other products you use, never forget to apply sunscreen. Even with the busiest schedule, don’t forget to apply sunscreen as it is a must to protect your skin from harmful UV rays and external aggressors. A good quality, hydrating sunscreen for your specific skin type, will also help to act as a base for your makeup application, making it last and stay in place with a fresh look for longer.
3. Don’t ignore other parts of your skin
While we are all very focused on making our face look as beautiful as possible, we often forget about the rest of our body. Skin is the largest organ of our body and is in direct contact with the external environment. The skin on your neck and rest of your body also needs to be looked after with suitable hydrating products. For the neck region, the simple rule of thumb is that the face care products should also be used on the neck to ensure the skin remains supple, hydrated and healthy-looking. For the rest of your body, applying a good body lotion will nourish it by helping to lock in moisture and hydrating it effectively. In addition, remember to use a quality hydrating body wash, suitable for your skin type, to effectively cleanse your whole body without drying your skin.
4. Use a facial roller
Skin rollers have been gaining in popularity of late. These are typically made of crystals such as rose quartz or jade and are a quick help to deal with dullness and puffiness on the face. Through regular use they help to attain a more ‘contoured’ look, by toning facial muscles. Especially during festive times, they can prove to be an effective pick-me-up for your skin.
This was all about getting ready to face the festive season and getting your oomph on for the celebrations. Now let’s look at what you can do post a night of festivities. Do not neglect your skin at the end of a long day, no matter how late it might be, as it makes a lot of difference to your skin. Read on to know the optimum skincare regime you should follow post the festivities.
5. Always remove your makeup thoroughly
During the festive season, it is important to put your best face forward and therefore your use of makeup increases drastically. But it is critical to remove this layer of makeup from your skin before starting any skincare regime. You can try a good makeup remover to do this job for you delicately and effectively, so that the external layer sitting on top of your skin is removed well. This will help to pave the way for the next step.
6. Cleanse it!
Once your face is free of makeup, follow it up with a gentle cleanser suitable for your particular skin type, so that the face is completely cleansed of all micro impurities. An effective cleanser should be deep cleansing, without making the skin feel try. You can check out the range of hydrating Rju cleansers and select the one that is appropriate for you.
7. Exfoliate (gently)
Skin exfoliation is an important step as it removes dead skin and deep cleanses the pores. In quality exfoliants, the gentle exfoliating micro-particles also help to rejuvenate skin, remove blemishes caused by dead skin cells and reveal brighter looking skin. However, do not go overboard with this step as excessive exfoliation can also lead to moisture loss and breakouts if it irritates your skin. Always choose a product that is tailored to your skin needs.
8. Use a Calming Toner
Once the basic cleansing of your skin is done, it is time to step up your game. Try and use a suitable toner that replenishes your skin, resurfaces it and helps maintain its ideal pH balance. Toners can be very effective in visibly reducing pores, calming your skin and keeping it refreshed and hydrated. Part of the cleansing process, a toner can also help to remove dirt, makeup or bacteria that other steps in your cleansing ritual might have missed. And to top it all, it also help prep your skin for further application of skincare products and makes them more effective.
9. Moisturize your skin
This is the most basic step in any skincare routine, but it’s importance cannot be over-stated. No matter the type of skin you have, a suitable moisturiser is critical to ensure that it stays soothed, hydrated and healthy-looking. It is a myth that if you have oily skin, you don’t need a moisturiser. Every kind of skin needs moisturisers, and you can go through the range of our hydrating Rju moisturisers to choose the one you find most effective for your skin type. A good quality hydrating moisturizer makes your skin look youthful, smooth, and supple. For your night care regime, always use a suitable overnight hydrating moisturizer that has effective ingredients to boost your skin hydration all through the night.
Finally let your skin breathe after the festive season. Refrain from using makeup for a few days and give your skin some well-deserved time off. This will help your skin breathe well, allowing it to rejuvenate and repair itself faster.
But ladies, just a word of caution here! Everything else you do for your skin must be supported with drinking lots and lots of water. Please remember to hydrate yourself well during this hectic period, as we often forget about it. Drinking water is a highly under-rated skincare regime which goes a long way towards attaining glowing skin. Water provides incredible benefits to your skin and its overall health - from minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines to maintaining skin suppleness and treating a variety of other skin problems. It will help to reduce the overall stress levels in your skin during this busy time. In case you are not too fond of drinking lots of water, please feel free to substitute it with seasonal fresh juices to ensure adequate fluid intake. This will also help in providing a lot of vitamins as well as in flushing out toxins from your skin and your whole body, naturally. When in doubt, hydrate!
