There’s nothing wrong with indulging during the holidays. We did, too! Like you, we also ate to our heart’s content during our Christmas and New Year’s celebrations. The only bad part about eating a ton of junk food is it can lead to major breakouts on your skin as excess sugar, salt, alcohol, and dairy can dehydrate your skin and make it more prone to dullness and acne.
What can you do to restore your skin to its healthy state and have gorgeous next-level glowing skin? Keep reading!
1. Don’t test out A LOT of new products or skin treatments.
When your skin breaks out the best way to treat it is by going back to the basics. Avoid trying new peels or lasers or layering a bunch of new products that might aggravate your skin even more. A simple regimen — cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen — will allow your skin to breathe, rest, and heal itself quicker.
2. Use a gentle cleanser.
Try: SNAILWHITE Whipp Soap, P295
You might think because your skin is breaking out you should use a facial wash with anti-acne properties. Unfortunately, they can do more harm than good as they contain harsh ingredients that can damage your skin. Instead, try a nourishing cleanser such as SNAILWHITE Whipp Soap. It doesn’t contain hash properties that will strip your skin’s natural oils and is suitable for all skin types. Its luxurious formula and Micellar Foam Technology can deeply clean skin, whether it’s oily, acne-prone, or dry, while calming down inflammation, brightening dark marks, and moisturizing dehydrated areas.
3. Exfoliate the right way.
Using a face mask or chemical exfoliator one to two times a week will pave the way to clear, glowing skin by getting rid of your dead skin cells, excess oil, leftover bacteria, and other pore-cloggers. However, don’t overdo it! Tempting as it may be to “scrub the dirt away,” over-exfoliating will just result in your skin becoming red, inflamed, and riddled with more blemishes. So be patient, good things will come eventually!
4. Drink a lot of water.
Now that the holidays are over it will be easier for you to go back to healthier eating habits. Drinking more water and stocking up on fresh fruits, vegetables, and proteins will help you get glowing skin again as they can promote collagen production and keep your skin hydrated.
5. Don’t forget to use moisturizer.
Try: SNAILWHITE Moisture Facial Cream, P995
Just because you’re going to change your diet doesn’t mean you can forget your skincare. While your healthy diet will work on your skin on the inside, you can assist your skin on the outside with a moisturizer packed with nutrients and vitamins.
For Philippines weather, go for a product that doesn’t have a thick consistency as it might clog your pores even more. SNAILWHITE Moisture Facial Cream is a must-have for all skin types because of its lightweight, yet potent, formula. Its texture will melt perfectly into your skin to provide it with all the benefits of Snail Mucin — a powerful ingredient that hydrates, brightens, and rejuvenates skin to give it that next-level glass skin glow.
6. And sunscreen, of course.
Try: SNAILWHITE CC Suncreen, P995
No matter what the weather is, as long as it’s daytime use sunscreen! Exposure to the sun and your gadgets’ harmful rays can cause dehydration, dullness, and acne — yikes! As the final step in your daytime regimen, SNAILWHITE’s CC Sunscreen will lock in moisture while shielding your complexion against harmful elements that could diminish your complexion’s glow. It contains glow-boosting ingredients like Snail Mucin and Alps Edelweiss Flower Extract to boost your complexion’s natural radiance without looking oily.
