Get Christmas Party Ready with SBC: Your Ultimate Guide to Party Ready Skin
Party season is upon us and that means getting glammed up for festive drinks with your favourite people.
Here at SBC, we find the party season to be the perfect opportunity for little extra self-indulgence! So, in the spirit of the festive season, we have put together a short skincare guide that will not only help you stay party-ready but also ensure your skin survives everything you throw at it.
#1 Smooth & Brighten
Yes, we may have mentioned this a couple of times, but by now you should realise how important exfoliation is. No pre-party skin preparation can begin without removing all the unwanted dry and dead skin cells. Exfoliate your face and body twice a week to restore an instant smoothness and radiance to your skin.
For your face opt for a gentle exfoliating cleanser to minimise pores, tighten skin and diminish impurities. The All Skins 3-in-1 Cleanser is our got to – this gentle, nourishing facial exfoliating gel, leaves skin feeling smooth and soft to touch. What’s more, applying makeup will be a breeze on your renewed, refreshed skin.
Planning to show some skin? Buff your body with the Cinnamon & Chai Body Polish, focusing on dry elbows and knees for silky smooth limbs. As well as stimulating circulation a good polish instantly brightens skin and helps party season products such as tinted lotions and moisturisers absorb easily.
#2 Moisturise & Glow
It’s also the most important time of year to moisturise as colder weather can wreak havoc on your skin. Skin is stripped of its natural moisture by central heating, low humidity and cold winds so it’s important to replenish any moisture loss to keep the skin looking and feeling thoroughly moisturised as well as hydrated.
Hydration is key for optimising skin plumpness and glow, Hyaluronic Acid is perfect for this, so layer the Collagen Ultra Rich Cream over your serum for optimum results. Your skin is now smooth and ready to apply your party make-up.
Sometimes a heavy butter isn’t always ideal before an event, before a party light layers work better, and sit more evenly on the skin. The New Cinnamon & Chai Glimmer Skincare Gel is the ultimate party companion. Enjoy enhanced and beautifully hydrated skin this innovative gel formula – with a blend of subtle golden shimmering colour to give your limbs a warm glow. Simply, apply evenly, and as a moisturiser to face and body for a healthy-looking glow. For contouring effects, highlight areas such as cheekbones, décolleté and legs
#3 De-puff and brighten eyes
To help brighten tired eyes and improve your complexion, you will need a combination of changes in lifestyle choices and specially-formulated eye care products. Ideally, you should aim for 8 hours of sleep a night for your body to repair itself.
To help hide the effects of those late nights, the Collagen Illuminating Eye Cream is perfect. Formulated with hydrating and nourishing products which work to reduce fine lines and puffiness. The brightening formula contains light-reflecting particles that instantly minimises tired-looking eyes to reflect a luminous glow. Dab some of the eye cream on your cheekbones for a subtle highlighting effect.
#4 Hydrate from within
Aim for beautiful skin from within. The late nights and indulgence which tend to occur at this time of the year all take their toll and can leave us feeling, and looking, very tired. Drinking two litres of water every day will flush out toxins and give you a natural glow. Making sure you are fully hydrated before the party will make you feel so much better in the morning – you can thank us later. For post-party hydration, why not try some warm water with a twist of lemon – both refreshing and hydrating!
Now go get your glad rags on, pop on a red lipstick and enjoy yourself… Don’t neglect to remove your makeup when the night is over – leave your trusty Collagen 3-in-1 Cleanser by the sink so that you’ve got no excuse!
We really hope you found these Christmas Party Prep steps useful, and that you all have a fabulous party season.
