A proper skin care routine is necessary to ensure the health of your face. When you properly cleanse tone and moisturize your skin, you will have healthy skin.

Using a cleanser

Washing your face is a basic and essential step of any routine Soak your face in warm water and ensure that all areas of the face are covered in water. Do not use hot water as it can damage and dehydrate the skin. Apply a small amount of facial cleanser to the skin and use your fingers to gently massage the cleanser into your face using a circular motion. Continue cleansing for about 45 seconds avoiding the mouth and eye areas. Finally, rinse thoroughly with warm water. Dry the face with a clean and soft towel as a dirty towel can transfer dirt to your face.

Toning

Soak a cotton pad with facial toner and pat the cotton pad across the entire face. Pay extra attention to the chin, nose, and forehead because these areas are frequently oily. Toning removes residue and helps skin retain moisture. Most toners can be used morning and night.

Christmas season is indeed the most wonderful time of the year. From exciting last-minute shopping sprees to multiple parties and get-together, we really can’t deny that the holidays have finally arrived. But, along with the infectious merriment the holidays bring, there is no denying that all the stress the holiday season brings can absolutely take a toll on our skin, with all the late-night partying, non-stop eating, and horrendous traffic we all have to contend with.

So how do we deal with these skin SOS and still be as glowing and youthful during the holidays?

Always Keep Hydrated

The holidays are the perfect excuse to indulge in booze and stay late at night especially with all the Christmas get-togethers you need to attend. But keep in mind that too much alcohol and less sleep can take a toll on the appearance of your skin.

“Skin care addresses two concerns: wellness and aesthetics or our sense of being attractive, that’s why we do have to take care of our skin and not take it for granted most especially during the holidays which can be really stressful,” emphasizes Dr. Lalaine Salazar, Medical Director of the SvelT’i Health and Beauty Centre in Timog Avenue, Quezon City.

Drinking lots of water can help keep your skin hydrated but there are also other ways of doing so.

Purify And Nourish

No matter how late you come home from a night of drinking and partying, never forget to rid your face first off all the make-up you wore and end your day with nourishing your skin. The thorough cleansing and washing away of make-up before sleeping is also an important part of skin care. To cap the skin care regimen, Dr.Salazar recommends a cleanser that can prevent the onset of pores, blemishes, and acne; it will also improve skin tone and heal any skin inflammation.

After washing your face to get all the make-up gunk off, apply a proper facial serum that provides anti-aging effects accelerated by the climate, stress, and even genetics.

“It makes you look youthful and energetic. Our stem cell ampoule also reduces the appearances of fine lines and wrinkles, improves the skin tone, and softens the skin as well.” Says Dr.Salazar.
