How can I avoid skin and body burnout in January?

During the festive season I usually attend a lot of parties and functions, and my skin and body are left feeling exhausted and tired-looking in January. Do you have any tips for keeping the skin and body healthy over Xmas, and avoiding looking tired and run-down in the new year?

How to look after your skin during the festive season

In your case there are some absolute “HAVE TO DO’s.” Firstly, you need to take care of your skin with both topical and oral supplements in the form of very powerful antioxidants. So in your case, something like the Ovelle skin care capsules are essential (this will obviously look after both the body and the face!), and applying a potent antioxidant serum under your moisturiser and sunblock every day is absolutely crucial. Try something like Skin Ceuticals CE Ferulic Serum (there are many other options as well).

Also, especially if a lot of your functions are outdoors, your sunblock is absolutely essential (for both the body and face), and then last but certainly not least, hydration is essential, both internally and topically. So re-hydrate your skin every night before you go to bed with a powerful HA serum, like Lamelle’s HA Plus Serum, and of course, drink loads of water throughout your functions and parties during the festive season.

  1. The ”potent antioxidant serum under your moisturiser and sunblock” tip sounds very helpful. I’ll give it a try

  2. I’m having a tough time getting back into the right diet, but drinking water and an antioxidant pill everyday reminds me to try every day.
