If it feels like your skin is in dire need of a refresh after this party season, you’re not alone.
The holiday season is already stressful enough but it can also take a massive toll on your skin. This month of festivities often means added stress, increased alcohol intake and party-induced lack of sleep, which can lead to a dull, clogged complexion and heightened sensitivity or irritation.
Don’t worry, the AVA SOCIETY team has put together a quick guide to help detox your routine and get your skin back on track.
1. Declutter Your Daily Routine
Now is truly the time to simplify your skincare routine. All you need on a daily basis is a gentle cleanser that’s suitable for your skin type, a nutrient-packed serum, a hydrating moisturiser to maintain your skin’s protective barrier and a quality sunscreen. Investing in these four products and building a consistent regime will help your skin repair and regenerate.
Here at Ava Society, we believe skincare should be simple, natural and uncomplicated. So we’ve specially curated skincare bundles directly targeted to certain skin types and concerns to uncomplicate things and help our customers build the ultimate routine to optimise their skin health. Our live chat is available 7 days a week between 7AM – Midnight (Sydney time) for direct consultations with our skin specialists, to help you better understand your skin needs and which products are suitable for you.
2. Get Hands On
Incorporate a quick 3-5 minute massage for your face into your routine to help “wake up” your skin, stimulating blood circulation and lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness and improved skin brightness and elasticity. Studies have also shown that facial massages can help your skin better absorb products, improving their potency and effectiveness. You can use a gua sha for the added soothing effect from the stone but a hand massage will also work perfectly fine (and doesn’t come with a hefty price tag).
3. Deep Cleanse To Reset Your Skin
It’s also key to occasionally treat your skin to a deep cleanse around 2-3 times a week with a purifying mask. This helps draw out deep impurities and stimulates new skin cell growth for a restored radiance.
Our Next Level Nourishing Australian Pink Clay Mask With Vitamin C is the ultimate skin treat to help rejuvenate your skin for a brighter and healthier complexion, in only 15-20 minutes. The natural blend of purifying Australian pink clay, hydrating Jojoba Oil and soothing Aloe Vera instantly melt into your skin to deeply nourish and restore.
These three steps will help combat the signs of festive fatigue and kick start your skin’s recovery so you can start 2021 with the healthy glow you deserve. Without having to sacrifice any festivities because even though 2020 proved to be a tough year, it’s important to practise gratitude for the joys that this year did offer us and to celebrate this with our loved ones.
