It’s no secret that the holidays can be the most stressful time of the year. But did you know it could do a number on your skin? Between holiday food and crazy travel schedules, maintaining healthy skin can be a challenge. However, sticking to your skincare routine can help ease those holiday-induced skin woes.
Here are tips to help you maintain your skincare routine during the holidays:
Traveling? Pack Skincare Goodies in Your Carry On
Airplane cabins are treacherous for your skin. Why? Airplanes have low humidity levels — meaning your skin loses moisture. That’s why it’s essential to keep your skin hydrated during your flight. While you can do an in-flight face mask, avoid strange looks from other passengers and pack a moisturizer instead.
The SebaMed Visio Hydro Active Gel is perfect for locking in moisture during a long flight. Featuring hyaluronic acid, this hydrating keeps skin supple and nourished. It’s even small enough to slip into your purse or carry on.
Packing your skincare essentials for a holiday trip can be a nightmare — but it doesn’t have to be. Just bottle them up in travel-sized jars. You can find mini containers on Amazon or at your local drug store.
Here’s another travel tip: aim for solid formulations like bar soap. A compact bar of soap is plain-friendly and easy to travel with. Not only will this limit the number of liquids in your toiletry bag, but you won’t have to worry about annoying leaks.
The Sebamed Cleansing Bar is ideal for maintaining your skincare routine while traveling. This compact bar gently cleanses your face and body without over-drying.
Use Multi-Functional Products
When you come home from a rocking Christmas party, the last thing you wanna do is follow a multi-step skincare routine. However, if you don’t remove your makeup, you could wake up to nasty breakouts and clogged pores. A solution to this? Use products that have more than one function.
The SebaMed Visio Gentle Cleansing Milk is an all-in-one product. It not only removes makeup and other impurities, but it moisturizes and protects your skin’s barrier. So, on the days you don’t feel like completing a full skincare routine, reach for multitasking products.
Set Reminders on Your Phone
When you’re snuggled in bed, it can be easy to skip your skincare routine and binge-watch Christmas movies instead. But if you set reminders for yourself, you’ll be more likely to stick to your skincare regime— no matter cozy or busy you are.
Studies even show that there is a positive correlation between phone reminders and behavior changes. So, if you want to adhere to your skincare routine during this hectic holiday season, set alerts on your phone.
Keep Your Skincare Routine Basic
Having a lengthy skincare routine is daunting, and it will encourage you to skip it altogether. But you don’t need a 10-step skincare regime for healthy skin. All you need is a balanced pH cleanser, moisturizer, and SPF sunscreen.
You can add extras if you want, but it’s not necessary. The simpler the skincare routine, the more inclined you are to stick to it.
