5 Steps to Glowing Skin this Party Season10/12/2014
Party season is here and at VOYA we can’t wait to don the glitter and join in the festivities for another year!
If you’re like us, you’ll want to be looking your absolute best when you step out for a night on the town. But this time of year can wreak havoc on your skin.
Busy schedules, colder weather, late nights, the odd glass of wine (or two) don’t do our skin or hair any favours. The elements combined with too many sugary treats strip the skin of its natural moisture, vitamins, and minerals resulting in puffiness, dehydration, and a lacklustre complexion. Not a good Christmas look!
To achieve glowing skin this festive party season you may have to up your skincare regime and give it just a little bit of extra TLC. To help prepare for this year’s holiday festivities follow these 5 simple steps for glowing, party-perfect skin!
1. Exfoliate for Glowing Skin
Removing dead skin cells from the face and neck is the first step to achieving a clean and clear complexion. Gentle exfoliation will minimise pores, reduce flakiness, improve skin texture, and smooth imperfections to reveal radiant skin with a healthy glow.
As the skin on our face and neck is delicate, it is best to use a non-aggressive exfoliant to avoid irritation. VOYA Love a Scrub is made with a blend of organic botanical herbs and nourishing seaweed extracts, and uses bamboo shoots to gently remove dead skin cells without causing damage.
A great toner is an essential part of any successful skincare routine and should be used after cleansing to thoroughly remove any impurities lurking on the skin’s surface. If you’re prone to breakouts, toner will help you say farewell to unsightly spots and blemishes. It assists by shrinking and tightening pores making it harder for bacteria and allergens to penetrate the skin.
Not only that, but the right toner will even out the skin’s surface and rejuvenate tired or dull looking skin for perfect party makeup application every time!
Opt for a product with moisturising properties like VOYA Ritzy Spritzy facial mist . It’s infused with natural essential oils to help cool, soothe and rehydrate the skin to reveal a radiant glow.
Skin lacking in moisture will be dull, tight, and flaky – definitely not ideal for all those party photos on Facebook! Adequately hydrated skin is crucial to a clear complexion, and the better condition your skin is in the less makeup you’ll need to apply on your big night out – a win-win.
VOYA Me Time facial moisturiser is made with a blend of soothing camomile and hydrating aloe vera. It contains pro-collagen organic ingredients to firm and condition the skin for a bright and youthful complexion. Packed to the brim with powerful antioxidants, the award winning moisturiser protects the skin by acting as a barrier against environmental pollutants and free radicals. Its lightweight formula also makes it the ideal base for makeup application.
If you have been slacking on your regular skincare routine (tut tut!) and find yourself in need of emergency skin SOS when a last-minute party invite comes through the door, don’t panic! Facial masks are a hard-working topical solution that can be used to rejuvenate skin for an instant boost – perfect for any time-strapped party animals!
Set aside 10 minutes and indulge with VOYA Get Glowing illuminating face mask. Made with mineral-rich seaweed extracts, the luxurious mask gets to work straight away by deeply penetrating the skin to detoxify, brighten, and purify even the dullest complexion.
The party season means a lot of late nights, and while your skin may be in tip top shape, it’s important to give your eyes the same care and attention. Dark circles and sunken eyes will leave you looking tired and washed out, no matter how radiant your overall complexion!
VOYA Bright Eyes firming eye cream contains a blend of certified organic ingredients that work quickly to smooth fine lines and help to keep you skin looking and feeling young. Use twice daily over your moisturiser and look forward to clear, sparkling, and youthful eyes on your next night out.
It can be tempting in the wee hours of the morning to fall into bed and break the cardinal rule of skincare – no sleeping with makeup on! Though it may seem like a chore, it is crucial to remove all traces of makeup before your head hits the pillow or you’ll be at risk of blocked pores, spots, and premature aging.
After a heavy night on the tiles, skin can be left feeling dry, dull, and tight so it is important to replenish the vitamins and minerals lost during party hours. The morning after, indulge with a nourishing facial serum like VOYA My Little Hero to provide deep hydration and boost your skin’s natural defences.
