Countdown to Holiday: 5 Steps to Fabulously Festive Skin

It may be the most wonderful time of the year for your social agenda, but your skin has other ideas. If the season’s low temperatures and brutal winds are wreaking their very special brand of havoc on your skin, you may find yourself wondering if there’s any possible way to restore your complexion in time for all of those events on the calendar. In a word, yes! We’ve rounded up five key products that you need in order to reverse the irritation, protect your skin, and prevent future issues. If you start now, your skin will be ready right on time. Here, our skin-loving picks for the season.

Cleanse Right

If you haven’t yet swapped cleansers for the season, make it a priority to switch from your standard to something more emolliating. Decleor Aroma Cleanse Micellear Oil ($20.99) is a dream for skin that’s disturbed by winter’s chill. Smooth and silky to the touch, it melts on contact and instantly removes even the most stubborn makeup. Watch as it transforms into a milky substance that gently and effectively gets rid of the gunk and leaves skin softer and healthier.

 

Treat Yourself

Just like you savor a steaming mug of cocoa on a chilly evening, your skin begs for a little comfort every now and then, too. GLAMGLOW has the solution with its ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment ($50.99). True to its name, this elegant mask drenches your skin with essential moisture. It’s free of potential irritants, including sulfates and parabens, and is ideal for all types of skin. That’s a huge bonus for those who are typically sensitive. Use it at least twice a week to achieve a brighter visage that’s softer to the touch.

 

Glow Nightly

Your skin does most of its work overnight when you’re resting. That’s good news for the bevy of PM-friendly products that are formulated to rescue upset skin, like Dr. Brandt Glow Overnight Resurfacing Serum ($50.99). It’s infused with a time-release form of retinol that helps increase cell turnover. The end result: brighter, healthier, more luminous skin. Over time, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is diminished, dryness is reduced, and irritation is calmed.

 

Heal Dryness

Ultra-dry skin requires far more than a basic face cream. Karin Herzog’s Vita-A-Kombi Facial Oil ($38.99) is just the answer that most dehydrated skin types need in the face of brisk winds and low temperatures. If your skin has a tendency to feel irritated on top of being simply dry, this oil does a beautiful job of nourishing and gently coercing your complexion back to a healthier state. Apply it at night for best results; you’ll awaken with a calmer face—and hopefully a brighter smile when you catch sight of that glowing complexion.

 

Get Buttery

If you prefer creams to oils, the bareMinerals Butter Drench Restorative Rich Cream ($35.99) is a superb choice that feels decadent to the touch. With a thick, whipped consistency, this pampering moisturizer is infused with shea butter, amino acids, and peptides to both soften skin and reduce those pesky fine lines and wrinkles. Hints of bergamot and eucalyptus add a scent that is lively, yet not so bold that it’s cloying. The end effect is subtly pleasant and destined to treat your skin with the nourishment it so desperately needs in cold weather.

Get Into the Spirit of the Season with Holiday Makeup Essentials

With the holiday season looming before us, you can pretty much count on a calendar jam-packed with social events. How you juggle that schedule is entirely up to you. At TheBeautyPlace.com, our mission is to help you juggle it in gorgeous style. Peruse our virtual aisles to find just the products you need to see you through the coming months, from glamorous lip hues to flattering eye colors. Here are some of our favorites:

d797e88ac00909fa3ae1400f173d6f54Now is definitely the time to play around with smoldering, smoky eyes. Use the Youngblood Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow Quad ($30.99) to create a killer look using shades of gray, charcoal, and black. Use the shimmery white hue to brighten the inner corners of your eyes—it won’t dull the intensity of the smokiness, but it will open up your eyes and make you look more awake. Don’t forget to pile on the mascara for extra oomph!

Color us obsessed with anything sparkly during the holiday season. One of our favorites is Jane Iredale 24-Karat Gold Dust ($10.99), a fine powder that looks just as gorgeous on the skin as it does in the cute jar. To use, pick up some powder with a fluffy makeup brush and dust it onto cheekbones and even décolleté for an instant color boost. Available in three colors, including silver, gold, and this peachy-pink champagne, the effect is pure radiance.

What’s your glam factor during the rest of the year? If you tend to play it safe most of the time, now is a good time to amplify your beauty routine with one or two products that really make your features pop. Ease into the idea with Glo Minerals Gloss in Poppy ($12.99), a fiery hue that provides an intense, glassy finish and imparts true, lasting color. The formula is packed with nourishing oils and healing antioxidants that actually improve the condition of your lips with regular use—just in case you need an excuse to wear the brazen hue.

You can stick with a tried-and-true, classic red with a matte finish, or you can step just a bit outside of your comfort zone with OPI Euro Centrale Collection My Paprika is Hotter Than Yours ($7.99). Infused with diamond dust, this unique formula shines from every angle, and from afar it almost resembles sparkling rubies. What better way to complement those new peep-toe heels?

Celebrations that go well into the night are fun and all, but all those runs to the restroom for a quick makeup check can be annoying. Nip that in the bud with Jane Iredale Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener ($32.99). Apply it before you put on any other makeup, and it will lock your color in place so you can party without the worry of touching up your look every hour. Bonus points for the radiant finish—it’s perfect for brightening a tired complexion!makeup-essentialsOur Cosmetics Sale starts this Saturday, October 22!
