Is your skin jaded and dull after Christmas? It’s not surprising if like most of us you’ve been inside with lots of tea and booze, crisps and chocolates. It’s what we do while we’re having holiday with the family and I’m certainly not complaining.
But our skins do show the after effects of this and can be greasy, dull or dry. Try doing a quick revival on your face and give it a deep cleanse using a clay mask. Even if you have dry skin this is a good one to do, so long as you don’t use it too often. They work by absorbing oil, lifting it right off your skin and so helps your pores to be tighter and your skin to look brighter and fresher.
Cleanse your skin thoroughly with a cleaning cream or milk using a warm cloth to remove it. Lay a thick layer of the clay mask over your skin and be sure to avoid your eyes and cover your T zone (forehead and nose) and leave on as directed. Usually 5 minutes for a dry skin and up to 15 for an oily skin. Wash it off with lots of warm water and then bathe with cool water to finish.
Afterwards use a serum or a night cream to pack some hydration in, or if you have one, use a facial oil and give your skin a little massage. It’s a wonderful pick me up for a jaded skin.
If you’re doing this in the morning, just apply your day cream, and make-up as normal. it will look much better and smoother.
Don’t forget to drink a couple of big glasses of water today too!
