YasTis the season for all festive party fun, but with a jam-packed lineup of Christmas parties our skincare routine can take a backseat and our skin will start to suffer. Before you resign yourself to dull, dry and coarse skin consider adopting these five expert tips from Yasmin Najjar, Managing Director at neoSKiN to ensure your skin stays happy and healthy this festive season and beyond.

Sleep like a princess – If there’s one thing you need in your life this festive season it’s the SLIP Pure Silk Pillowcase. Unlike cotton pillowcases SLIP silk cases prevent skin from creasing and hair from frizzing when we sleep so you’ll wake up looking and feeling like royalty.

Wipe your slate cleanA day’s worth of makeup, dirt and oil make for a bacteria breeding ground which can lead to breakout and blemishes. In an ideal world we’d all tumble into bed after a night out but to save your skin don’t skip your nighttime cleansing routine. For a thorough cleanse use Pevonia Combination Skin Cleanser or Micellar Lotion (3-in-1) by Eau Thermale Avene.

Don’t be scared of change – If you’ve been using the same skincare products for years it’s time to mix it up. As we age our skin changes and what worked for your skin five years ago won’t be doing you any favours now. To ensure your skin stays flawless and fabulous for festive fun adjust your skincare regime to suit the number of candles on your birthday cake.

Oxygen treatmentsAt this time of year many of us are not blessed with the luxury of time but a quick 30-minute neOxygen infusion treatment will  prep your skin for the next social soiree. The oxygen treatment hydrates, enhances volume, firms, lifts and improves overall texture and tone of the skin. Plus, you’ll see an immediate improvement in your skin’s radiance and glow.

Freshen upTo enliven skin this season apply NARS Illuminator in Laguna or Orgasm to the face instead of popular powder bronzer for refreshed luminosity. Pair this illuminator with NARS CocoCabana Illumintaor (applied to the cheekbones only) and your skin will radiate all night long.
