Now’s the time to pep up your complexion for the last party of the year. If you want to prepare your skin for a dazzling makeup look (and give it that extra wow!), here are 6 steps for ringing in the New Year with glowing skin.
Give your skin a jump start with a pre-party peel. The Clear Skin Willow Bark Exfoliating Peel gently sloughs off dead skin with fruit acids to reveal a healthy glow. Your skin will feel refreshed and prepped for your night’s beauty look.
Watch our Mixology Monday video below for another New Year's Eve routine that also recommends the Clear Skin Willow Bark Exfoliating Peel.
2. MASK with our Eight Greens Phyto Masque (Hot). The paprika from a self-heating mask (touted by Glamour as the next big thing in face masks) gives skin a work out and produces a healthy, rosy glow. It also works wonders to control oil and shine throughout the night and improves hydration. Apply a few hours before heading out the door since the paprika does heat up the skin for up to 60 minutes.
Be sure to keep the skin hydrated for a healthy glow - replenish with lots of H2O and apply a dewy finish moisturizer. Our Balancing Moisturizer Duo includes both the Green Tea T-Zone Mattifier to moisturize your shiny T-Zone and the Pomelo Cheek Hydrator for your drier areas.
4. TREAT EYES
It’s been a long month of holiday parties, sugar and cocktails, but don’t let your eyes give it away. Whether it’s early in the evening or early into the New Year, our Cucumber Eye Gel will reduce puffiness and keep you looking fresh any time.
5. MOISTURIZE LIPS
Don’t forget your pucker with our Cinnamon Kiss Lip Plumper. Cinnamon oil and caffeine combine to prep your lips for that favorite gloss or shade of red. The natural plumping effect will leave your lip smooth, hydrated and ready for the midnight ball drop.
The party's over and you'd like to go straight to bed but there's no greater skincare mistake than sleeping with your makeup on! Take the easy way out and use our Rice Milk 3 in 1 Cleansing Water to remove the night's glamour. Just swipe this cleanser, toner, makeup remover over your skin with a cotton round and you're done - no need to rinse!
