Now that the holiday season has come to a halt, we are finally settling down from the nonstop road of soirees, cocktails and galas. And though our spirits might stay merry and bright, all the sugar, mulled wine and late nights that we experienced through the holiday season will certainly continue to take a toll on our complexion in the coming weeks. To detox your skin and revive your complexion, here are essential tips from Avon’s consulting top dermatologist, Dr. Cheryl Karcher to keep on hand in the new year:
**Rest up! Ensure you get plenty of beauty sleep now that the partying is done. Well-rested skin is bright and healthy-looking, while tired skin looks dull and lackluster.
**Moisturizing is key, so massage your favorite moisturizer plus SPF onto your skin before applying makeup to avoid dry skin at the end of the day. Try ANEW Clinical Skinvincible Multi-Shield Lotion SPF 50 ($36, avon.com) which will also protect from harsh winter conditions.
**Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! To rid the toxins in our body that alcohol may have brought on, drink lots of water to replenish your system and prevent from dehydration.
**Get glowing by applying a resurfacing mask, like ANEW Clinical Advanced Retexturizing Peel ($25, avon.com), before you moisturize to achieve a luminous glow.
**Cool those puffy eyes and minimize under eye bags with chamomile tea bags or cucumber to unwind from late nights of holiday partying.
