It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas music, hot cocoa, watching Elf on repeat, what more could a girl ask for? With the holiday season in full swing, your calendar is likely getting filled up with festive soirees and parties. With all the gatherings on the horizon, you may be wondering how to look your best. Don’t just fret over your holiday dress; It’s time to get your skin holiday party ready! FREEDOM wants to give you our top four holiday beauty tips to get you ready for this season.
Let’s Face It, It Starts with Your Skin
Wintertime has a special way of making skin look dull and dry. You bundle up in cozy layers to protect your body from the cold, but what can you do to protect your face? Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! A good moisturizer is an essential first step to making sure your skin stays beautiful and glowing this season, despite the cold and dry weather. Pro tip: pair your moisturizer with an SPF, because even though it’s cold outside, your skin still needs protection from the sun’s harmful rays.
Just like your skin, your hair can also be affected by the weather. Cold and dry weather causes hair to become brittle and damaged. As if that wasn’t enough, shampooing your hair actually strips your hair of its natural moisture. During this Holiday season, try shampooing every other day to ensure your hair remains soft and moisturized. You can also invest in a leave-in conditioner product and anti-breakage serum to ensure your hair is ready for every holiday party.
Eye Can’t Believe How Beautiful You Look
It might be dreary and grey outside, but that doesn’t mean your make-up should be. Brighten up your look by adding a pop of color on your eyes. Find a color that works best for you. Blue eyes will pop with gold and bronze shadow, brown eyes look amazing with deep plum or emerald tones, and green eyes will be enhanced with a bold cranberry colored shadow. Be bold people, color looks good on you!
And the Simplest Tip of All…
Stay Hydrated! Drinking ice-cold water when it’s freezing outside isn’t the most appealing thing in the world. But despite the cold, it’s still important to keep your body hydrated this holiday season. Drinking water is a simple way to boost your immune system and metabolism, both essential things during the winter. Fighting flu season and Christmas cookie season starts with drinking enough water! And if you feel good, you’re going to look good— guaranteed.
