Cold winds, central heating on high and the stress of Christmas will all be taking its toll on your skin during December, leaving it feeling dry and dehydrated. Once the Christmas party season starts, the late nights, rich food and alcoholic drinks will exacerbate the problem, just when you want your skin to looks its best. Here is your six-point protection plan to keep your complexion looking its best.

1PROTECT YOUR SKIN

Don’t be fooled into thinking that your skin is safe from harmful UV rays, which break down collagen to form wrinkles, just because it is winter. Remember to apply a good quality suncream, such as Heliocare Advanced SPF 50 Gel, as part of your daily routine, and use an antioxidant serum, such as DermaQuest’s Vitamin C Serum with Ferulic, to protect your skin from the inside.

2 SILKY-SMOOTH LEGS This is the ideal time of year to have pain-free laser hair removal, to liberate you from tedious waxing and shaving. Preparing now means you won’t have to worry about unwanted hair, no matter what you decide to wear, and it’s one less thing to worry about before you go to those Christmas parties.

3 HAVE A PAMPER PIT STOP

Remember to take some time out just for you during this busy and stressful time, to recharge your batteries and your skin. Book in for a nourishing, hydrating,corrective Stem Cell Facial using botanical stem cells. This facial is not only relaxing; it uses luxury concentrated formulas that leave your skin looking younger and radiant.

4 GORGEOUS PARTY FEET To ensure your feet look and feel their best in your party shoes, try the MediPedi, which is a longer-lasting, more effective pedicure. It will leave your feet smooth and supple by using an advanced formula to dissolve dead skin and repair cracked heels. With feet feeling like they are walking on air, you can be sure you will happily dance the night away.

5 BRING ON THE VITAMIN A Applying vitamin A topically to the skin in the form of retinol will help with uneven skin tone and pigmentation, whilst promoting collagen and elastin production. I highly recommend using the DermaQuest Brightening Serum for one to three nights a week, for optimum results.

6 HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE Drink lots of water, at least two litres a day, to balance hydration on the inside during the party season. Boost your nutrition with high-potency essential fatty acids, such as Seabuckthorn Oil. You can also prevent epidermal water loss by using a moisturising spray on your face, such as DMK Herb and Mineral Spray, combined with moisture-rich Seba E, hydrating the skin instantly. For the ultimate in hydration, you can lock moisture in using the NEW DMK Hydroloc.
