Radiant skin is something we all lust after, but how would you feel if we told you that gorgeous, glowing skin isn’t actually that far out of your reach?
At this time of year it may seem that dewy, glowy skin is especially unattainable…
Dry airy, naughty food and glasses of bubbly at those festive holiday parties, it may seem like all the cards are stacked against you!
The dry air saps moisture out of the skin cells and can leave your skin parched and dull, while too much alcohol and sugary, fatty foods can further strip your skin of moisture and even break down collagen and speed up the signs of aging!
In this article we’ll share a few helpful tips so you can enjoy radiant, beautiful skin no matter how cold it gets, and no matter how many parties you attend.
You deserve Instagram snap worthy skin and after following our tips, you’ll have it!
Sip the right way
If you enjoy a glass of red or a few flutes of bubbly every now and again, then we certainly aren’t going to judge you!
However, too much of the good stuff can very quickly leave your skin looking less than its best, but we understand that you may not want to abstain all season long!
Because alcohol dehydrates the body, and therefore draws moisture out of the skin cells, it’s important that you replenish this lost moisture by sipping on water alongside your drinks.
A tip that we love is to sip one glass of water per drink.
Your skin will thank you and you’ll love us the next morning when you wake up hangover free!
Slow down on the sugar
Okay so before you skip over this one, you may want to hear us out…
We aren’t demanding that you give up your donut addiction altogether, we’re just encouraging you to cut back, not only for your skin, but for your health too.
Sugar is addictive so it’s hard to quit, but too much can actually increase your risk of disease and break down collagen in the skin, a structural protein essential for youthful, plump skin.
