How To Care For Your Skin During the Holidays?

December 17, 2014
Everyone must be excited about the Holidays, yet we are hoping for it not to come too soon because we still have things to do and manage before we welcome the frenzied season. Add the pressure on looking healthy and pretty despite long lists of to-do’s, balancing work and play, and managing the social calendar. 
Here are some tips on how to stay and keep our skin healthy and ready for the Holi-daze!
Cleanse and moisturize.  One night of mistake, a week of regret. The no-no rule of sleeping with your makeup on still tops the list. Cooler weather may dry up the skin so it might be best to switch to a richer formula. 
Exfoliate weekly. Partying all night means you tend to reapply make up more frequently than usual. Through gentle exfoliation, you can clear the impurities in your pores plus scrub off dead skin cells that may lead to breakouts.
Use cold packs. Alcohol and sodium dilate the blood vessels, and consuming them in large amounts before bed causes puffy eyes due to water retention. Cold packs can constrict the blood vessels, reducing the flow of liquid into soft tissue. Try sleeping with your head elevated to reduce the bloat in your eyes.
Apply sunscreen daily. Do not leave the house without it. Sunscreen is not just for the summer season.  Dermatologists have long revealed the ultimate secret to keeping skin as healthy as possible through daily use of sunscreen.
Take lots of water. Even if the weather gets cool, it is always a must to take lots of fluid. 

Daylong, from the makers of Cetaphil, is a new sun care range that advocates the use of sun protection every day. Accumulated skin damage from daily sun exposure causes your skin to lose its suppleness and moisture, and ultimately results to premature skin aging.  Daylong is clinically proven to protect the skin from UVA, UVB and IR radiation down to the cellular level which is crucial in preventing long-term damage.
