Skin Tips For The Upcoming Party Season

29/07/2015

The countdown to Christmas has started, we officially have 10 weeks before the party season kicks off! As we're sure your aware, all that partying, late nights, indulgent foods and cold weather takes its toll on our skin. So we compiled a few hints and tips to help you get through the festive season looking your best with glowing radiant skin.

Skin Tip #1 - Pre or Post-Party Pick Me Up 

Soak a flannel or muslin cloth in warm water and squeeze to drain excess liquid. Lie the towel flat across the whole face and leave for 3 mins. Follow with a generous layer of your favourite nourishing Serum, we love Flint + Flint Serum (available in clinic or online). The heat and steam from the hot towel will help to open the skins pores allowing the active ingredients in the Serum to penetrate deeper into the skin leaving soft and supple skin. Its like a mini at-home facial treatment that feeds the skin all the nutrients it needs for a natural glow. 

Skin Tip #2 - Build Protective Barriers

Wear a Primer that contains an SPF30 daily. It will not only help to avoid UV, UVA & UVB damage (which can still happen on cloudy days!) but also build an additional protective barrier for your skin against the harsh winter elements. Your skin will be less rough and beaten ready to glow at the party. Picking an SPF30 that doubles as a makeup primer so it also helps to absorb excess oils meaning your makeup sits better for then party and avoids falling into facial creases (try Flint+Flint SPF30 Primer)

Clear Dead Skin Cells 

Exfoliate every other day in the week leading up to your party. It will help to clear clogged pores, remove dead and tired looking skin cells while stimulating your own collagen production for a fresher more radiant complexion. It also helps your makeup sit better! If you can, really treat your skin with a Microdermabrasion treatment at your nearest Skin Health Spa clinic. 

Hydration – Water only takes you so far…. We do the rest

Using Flint + Flint Moisturiser 3x every other evening leading up to the party season will provide your skin with the ultimate hydration. While drinking lots of water will hydrate the skin from the inside the Moisturiser 3x is packed with Hyaluronic Acid, something that is naturally in our skin so it penetrates into the deeper skin layers to improve skin biomechanical properties plumping the skin, boosting collagen which improves skin tonicity and restores the skin water balance. Skin appears more youthful, flexible and firm – party ready! We also recommend a Transderm treatment a couple of days before your event, this treatment uses micro-electrical current to push product deeper into the skin for ultimate hydration. 

Bright Eyed and Bushy Tailed

To lift eye lids, reduce the appearance of fine lines and brighten dark circles, apply a good eye cream around the eyes prior to the party. Flint + Fliny Eye Hero contains Gransil DMCM-5 which is a instant soft focus effect that provides an intensified wrinkle blurring property to lines and wrinkles in addition to added cushion and sensory feel. This cream will achieve a reduction of puffy eyebags in only 15 days – fast anti-eyebag action. Ideal for after the party as well as before. 

So there you have a few quick and easy tips to keep your skin looking its best while you party, and also to help hide the effects of the party the day after!
