Diwali is over and the next thing on everybody’s mind is the New Year’s Eve. The time between these two just rushes by in a blink, isn’t it? Most of you must have already planned and booked for your NYE getaway. And we are sure you wouldn’t want to look sullen eyed in all those amazing pictures that you would be clicking. Are we right?
Having a naturally glowing and beautiful skin is what we all want to have but how much do we take care to put in efforts to have that flawless glow on our face? Most of us don’t – and the reason that we hide behind, more often than not, is our busy schedules and routines. It is a myth that you need to put in long tiring hours to get that amazing skin. The fact is that you don’t!
Here are some skin care hacks that will help you in preparing for your New Year’s Eve getaway:
- Reduce creases on face by changing your pillowcase
Yes, it is that simple. Sleeping on cotton pillowcase robs your skin and hair of its natural moisture. Dry skin is prone to breakouts and creases which are visible in form of fine lines. Switch to a satin or silk pillowcase and see the difference. It will not only provide a healthy glow to your face but will also help in curtailing the frizzy hair. Now, that’s a bonus, isn’t it?
- Cut down on sugar for a radiant skin
Intake of sugar can result in inflammation of the skin which often comes out in form of acne on dry skin. By cutting down on your sugar intake you can be assured of kicking off those unwanted acne during the celebration hours.
- Store up on Aloe Vera gel
Aloe Vera is panacea for skin and hair. It can help in getting rid of major issues like acne, pimples, and dandruff. You can use Aloe Vera gel directly as a substitute to your face cream or simply mix it up with your moisturizer or the face cream.
- Moisturize, moisturize and moisturize!
Umm no, we are not asking you to keep on applying moisturizer every other second. Winters tend to make your skin drier. It is wise to invest in a heavy and nourishing moisturizer preferably body butters which keep your skin hydrated and moisturized for longer hours even during the harsh winters. Of course, choose the right moisturizer as per your skin type.
- Always have tea tree oil in your closet
Tea tree oil is known for its anti inflammatory properties which help in combating sudden acne breakouts. Dousing a bit of tea tree oil on fresh acne breakout for a couple of days can help in decreasing the visibility to almost negligible.
- Carry green tea teabags with you
Green tea is known for its antioxidant properties. While consuming green tea will help in getting good skin but the little do people know about the magic potion it can turn into for puffy eyes. Festive season is all about long sleepless nights enjoying with family and friends which end up in puffy and tired eyes. Cold green tea teabags work as magic to soothe those puffy and tired eyes.
- Nourish your lips
The skin on the lips is far tenderer than the rest of the body. Winters can be harrowing for lips if not taken care of and you would certainly want chapped lips during the NYE. Always carry a moisturizing lip balm with you and reapply it at regular intervals. Apply a coat of lip balm before the lipstick. It will help in keeping your lips moisturized for a longer period of time.
- Hydrate your skin
Consume as much water as you can. Nothing can give a radiant and flawless skin like consumption of water can. No beauty product can beat that glow.
- Catch on sleep
No matter where you are and what you do, don’t forget to catch up on your beauty sleep. Skin on the face is the first place where the exhaustion shows. You wouldn’t want to have a sullen face while partying. Though we know it’s difficult but, do listen to the body while you are busy partying hard. Don’t forget to rest!
- Cleanse your face no matter what
And we mean it. Cleanse your face no matter how tired and exhausted or late you are. Never go to bed with the dirt or makeup on your face. A healthy bedtime regime of cleaning and moisturizing your skin can take you a long way.
Getting a healthy and radiant skin is not a one day affair. You need to put in efforts everyday to get that envious skin. And by efforts we don’t imply hour long beauty and skin care sessions. The above list is simple and doable even with a hectic schedule. Imbibing these simple skin care hacks will make you selfie-ready not only for the NYE but for life.
