Once again, we are nearing one of the most special holidays of the year – Christmas!
With this festive season, in stride, comes a variety of impromptu Christmas-themed photos with our friends and loved ones. Whether it be a simple shot of the family by the Christmas tree or a barkada photo with St. Nick himself, the idea of photographing these unforgettable holiday moments seems to be the norm in every Filipino household.
Although these photos are meant to immortalize this joyous occasion, it can sometimes capture moments, in which our skin looks less than perfect.
Luckily, looking your best this Yuletide season can be achieved by having an effective evening skincare regimen.
Studies show that missing out on evening cleaning habits can contribute to premature aging, breakouts and even, potential skin infections. So, it’s incredibly important to practice the proper cleaning habits, every evening, to avoid these possible outcomes.
Here are five nighttime tips to help you achieve that radiant, photo-ready complexion all-throughout this Christmas season.
Tip 1: Don’t forget to remove your makeup before going to bed.
Keeping your makeup on while you sleep poses many threats to your skin.
For one, dirt and pollutants cling to your makeup as you go about the day. So, when you avoid washing before bed, these harmful sediments remain on your face. This, in effect, clogs your pores and causes breakouts.
More than that, you run the risk of unwanted aging. Throughout the day, our skin attracts free radicals – more so, when makeup is worn. So, when makeup is kept on overnight, these free radicals can expedite skin aging. To help counteract these free radicals, we suggest using the ARTISTRYTM Creamy Makeup Remover from the Special Care Collection.
The ARTISTRYTM Cream Makeup Remover gently and effectively cleanses the skin to remove long-lasting and transfer-resistant makeup. It is made up of a non-greasy and non-comedogenic formula that makes it easy to rinse off, without leaving any residue. Furthermore, it possesses properties that deeply clean the face, without stripping off its natural oils and moisture.
Tip 2: Double-check your face for eye makeup residue.
What most people don’t know is that the tiny hair follicles and oil glands in our eyelids can get clogged from failure to remove eye makeup. This can result to bacteria build-up and eventually lead to eye infections.
Be sure thoroughly wipe off your eye makeup with the ARTISTRYTM Eye and Lip Makeup Remover, from the Special Care Collection.
The ARTISTRYTM Eye and Lip Makeup Remover is a lightweight, dual-phase makeup remover that gently and thoroughly removes makeup from the eyes and lips. It is made up of a special dual phase formula that gets activated when shaken. Not only does this product effectively clean off eye and lip makeup, it also leaves the eye area feeling conditioned and the lip area moisturized.
Tip 3: Be sure to exfoliate your skin.
Environmental factors cause our skin to become dull and lifeless, by the end of the day. To reveal your face’s natural glow, be sure to use the ARTISTRYTM Polishing Exfoliant, from the Special Care Collection.
The ARTISTRYTM Polishing Exfoliant is a cream-gel polishing scrub that effectively removes flakiness and impurities deep within skin’s surface to immediately reveal the skin’s natural radiance. It contains non-plastic micro scrubbing beads to make the skin feel soft, smooth and polished. On top of that, it is gentle enough to use daily, but powerful enough to transform your complexion.
Tip 4: Treat your face to a face mask.
Research shows that the skin absorbs active ingredients better in the evening than during the day. So, give your skin a treat and apply the ARTISTRYTM Deep Cleansing Mask, from the Special Care Collection.
The ARTISTRYTM Deep Cleansing Mask is creamy clay mask that uncovers a luminous, healthy glow as it deeply cleans the face for less visible pores and clearer, smoother skin. It is made up of Amazonian White Clay and Kaolin Clay, both of which work deep within skin’s surface to draw out impurities such as dirt and oil; thereby, leaving the skin feeling soft, clean and refreshed.
Tip 5: Don’t be afraid to smile for the camera.
With the ARTISTRYTM Special Care Collection integrated into your evening facial cleaning routine, you are sure to be photo-ready for this holiday season. So, don’t be afraid to pose for the camera this time around. Look your best with the ARTISTRYTM Special Care Collection!
