It’s that time again! The Holiday season invokes fond memories of Pumpkin Spice Lattes, Friendsgiving, office parties, songs you only sing once a year, needing more tape than you ever thought possible and wearing sweaters with weird patterns. Oh, the joy of holiday season!! Not to mention, traveling, vacations, friends and oh yeah, family.
Get ready to overdo it. Along with all that joy comes stress. Freezing cold in the Midwest of U.S. and Canada and heat in Australia — your favorite dress is too tight, an old flame will attend your best friend’s dinner with a date, expensive plane tickets, your brother talks politics, you’re asked when you’ll “settle down” or get a “real job.” Aargh!
How to Handle Holiday Stress That Shows Up on Skin
Well, be prepared because all of these seasonal shenanigans can show up on your face. Don’t worry, we’ve got a Regimen for that! Here’s what to watch for and how to handle it when the Holidays unleash their festivities on your skin.
The Stressor: Extreme weather conditions and excess sugar can lead to rosy dry cheeks and sensitive skin.
The Regimen: SOOTHE Regimen fortifies the skin’s barrier to calm and comfort your skin and visibly neutralize redness for a healthy-looking, even-toned appearance.
The Stressor: Burning the candle at both ends and sacrificing your beauty sleep for blotchy, uneven, dehydrated and dull skin? Or facing the blue light from your computer screen while you’re online shopping?
The Regimen: RECHARGE Regimen boosts skin’s defenses for a healthy-looking, hydrated glow — fooling everyone! This 3-step Regimen moisturizes too! Take care of the appearance of dullness and dryness that pops up starting in your 20s.
The Stressor: Too many deadlines and low on funds leaving you stressed and seeing breakouts? Hormones can also trigger breakouts, whether you’re a teen or an adult.
The Regimen: SPOTLESS Regimen — designed especially for teens and young adults — deep cleans pores, removes dead skin cells, reduces the appearance of oil and shine and helps clear blemishes and prevent future breakouts. Or UNBLEMISH Regimen — for adults with acne and aging concerns —tackles both to help keep skin clear and visibly firm and smooth at the same time.
The Stressor: Lucky enough to travel to a warm climate? Or it’s summer where you are? The downside is that too much sun can leave skin uneven and discolored with dark patches.
The Regimen: REVERSE Brightening Regimen exfoliates and refines skin’s surface and brightens for a radiant luminosity.
The Stressor: Staying up late wrapping gifts, plus the rigors of real life? Do you see a few more lines and look a little more tired than last year? Or just plain older?
The Regimen: REDEFINE Regimen lightly exfoliates, then replenishes natural moisture factors, leaving skin smoother and firmer-looking. Use it to visibly improve lines, wrinkles and loss of firmness for younger-looking skin.
