From the number of shopping days left to the clock striking midnight on New Year’s Eve, countdowns are a staple of the holiday season. As you make your list of holiday to-dos — and check it twice — don’t forget about your skin.
Yes, your skin. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and beautiful skin isn’t created overnight. Think ahead this holiday season and you can reveal a glowing, confident new you every time you make an entrance. Not sure where to start? Check out our suggested timeline below. And while you can expect visible results in as little as 30 days, be sure to continue your regimen into the New Year to see best results at 60 days. It’s never too early, or too late, to start counting down to the best skin of your life.
Holiday-Party Countdown to Confidence
4 – 6 weeks in advance:
Add next-generation Vitamin A and skin conditioning to your REDEFINE or REVERSE Brightening Regimen. The AMP MD System combines dermatology-inspired micro-exfoliation with the clinical strength REDEFINE Intensive Renewing Serum to reveal refined, smoother, firmer-looking skin.
Using the REVERSE Lightening*, UNBLEMISH or SOOTHE Regimen? You can still have the benefits of revitalized, younger-looking skin by incorporating Intensive Renewing Serum sans the Roller.
TIP: This is also the time to place additional focus on taking care of yourself from the inside out. Consider increasing your water intake and taking a supplement designed to promote healthy skin.
2 – 4 weeks in advance:
Start working towards party-ready eyes by selecting the eye cream that’s best for you. To reduce the look of dark circles and puffiness, use new Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex morning and night. To minimize the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles, add REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream to your nighttime Regimen.
TIP: Prep for some glamour by applying Lash Boost each night. The conditioning serum features a proprietary formula that improves the appearance of lash volume and length.
2 – 3 weeks in advance:
Plan to give lips a fuller-looking pout. After completing your Regimen at night, use REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum to maintain fuller, younger-looking lips and help retain their natural moisture.
TIP: Your skin will benefit from extra hydrating, too. Now is a great time to incorporate Active Hydration Serum into your Regimen.
Day of the event:
Get a sun-kissed glow without the sun. ESSENTIALS Foaming Sunless Tan begins to develop color in 2-4 hours. (Don’t get dressed until it’s fully dry!) For sheer sun protection, finish with ENHANCEMENTS Mineral Peptides Broad Spectrum SPF 20. Its light-deflecting minerals help reduce visible redness while evening-out the look of skin tone.
Now, get ready to reveal the confident new you, and have some merry holiday fun!
*REVERSE Lightening is available in the US only.
