5 Tips to Revitalise Post-Holiday Skin
There’s no denying that our skin takes a bit of a beating when we go on holiday. From the late nights, travel, and heat, it can all contribute to our skin looking and feeling drier, puffier and generally a little lacklustre.
Luckily, there are some simple things you can do to refresh your post-holiday skin. Here are 5 of our essential holiday skin care tips.
1. Drink Up
It’s normal to indulge whilst on holiday. We eat out more, drink more alcohol and generally live life a little fuller. A change in diet can often leave skin feeling puffy and dehydrated, so it’s important to drink lots of water to rehydrate your skin. Aim for around two litres a day. Add a squeeze of lemon for added taste and vitamins.
Exfoliating is a great way to rid your skin of any dead skin cell build-up that has occurred over the holiday season. Exfoliation unclogs pores and encourages healthy skin cell regeneration. Use a fine grain exfoliator twice a week, or opt for an exfoliating acid like Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid.
3. Hydrate hydrate hydrate
The sun and sea can seriously dry out your skin, so it’s important to rehydrate your skin once you’re home. Add some hyaluronic acid serum to damp skin after cleansing to lock in moisture and finish with a rich moisturiser. Use a moisture mask like the Origins overnight hydrating mask once a week before bed for an added boost of hydration.
4. Get back to routine
As soon as you can, get back to your normal routine to treat any skin issues such as dryness or breakouts. Start with a double cleanse with a gentle cleanser, followed by toner, serum and moisturiser. Don’t forget a high SPF for the daytime, even if the weather is cloudy and grey.
5. Book a facial
A professional facial can give you that post-holiday glow in 60-minutes. Facials include a deep cleanse, exfoliation, extraction, mask and massage to revitalise and restore tired skin.
