It’s officially that time of year again. The holidays are right around the corner, and while the endless shopping, parties, and gift giving can bring great joy, the season can also be quite taxing. Stress over finding the perfect gifts, dehydrated skin from air travel, breakouts from heavy holiday party makeup, and lack of sleep from too much celebrating can all take a toll on your skin. Luckily, Luzern has just the cure for your holiday skin woes!
Start With A Good Cleanser
Clean skin is happy skin. We can’t stress this enough. Cleansing your face at the end of the day does more than just wash away makeup; it also removes dirt and other impurities that can clog pores and leave skin looking dull and lifeless. Going to bed with a fresh, clean face is one of the best gifts you can give your skin.
Micellar Cleansing Water is a quick and easy way to cleanse skin when you’re busy, especially because it’s a no-rinse cleanser. Featuring pumpkin enzyme ferment, which speeds the removal of dead skin cells to reveal brighter, healthier looking skin, this rinse-free cleansing water also helps active ingredients in other skincare products to be better absorbed. For a more nourishing and hydrating cleanse, Nuit Hydra Cleansing Emulsion is excellent for removing makeup and impurities after a night of holiday celebrations. Blended with six nourishing oils and organic Swiss alpine extracts, this deeply rejuvenating cleanser is a pampering addition to your nighttime beauty regimen.
Put Your Best Face Forward
Follow your cleansing routine with a hydrating or balancing L’Essentials Toning Essence, depending on your skin’s needs. A toning essence is a simple way to maintain and restore skin’s balance by removing any makeup residue left behind, and prepping the skin for subsequent serums and moisturizers.
Let’s face it: Heavy holiday party makeup can take a toll on skin. Soothe the look of redness caused by the stresses of too much makeup and too little sleep with Serum Absolut Recovery Your skin will thank you!
Get Your Beauty Sleep
Lack of sleep can wreak havoc on your mood, on your health, and on your skin. With all the demands of the holiday season – shopping, deadlines, travel, and family gatherings to name just a few – sacrificing sleep can seem like the only way to fit it all in. But a good night’s sleep is vital to good health and glowing skin – and by the time your head hits the pillow each night, your skin is ready for recovery.
Luckily, we’ve figured out your nighttime skincare routine for you. Luzern’s Nuit Collection maximizes the rejuvenating power of sleep with a complete nighttime beauty ritual designed to enhance collagen production, smooth and even out skin tone, and improve hydration so you wake up looking refreshed even after a late night holiday celebration. Waking up to puffy eyes? De-puff overnight with Nuit Eye Masque, a revitalizing treatment that visibly softens the appearance of dark circles and puffiness. For an overall skin pick-me-up, Nuit Hydra Enzyme Masque brightens and hydrates while you sleep.
Best of all, beautiful things come in small packages. Some of our favorites from the Nuit collection is available in our Minis size, so you can keep your skincare regimen intact even during your holiday travels.
Hydrate Inside and Out
Holiday travel can leave skin dehydrated, dull, and dry. Prep your skin for the trip a couple of days beforehand by using a hydrating serum or face oil. Serum Absolut The Replenishing Oil is ultra hydrating and ideal underneath makeup to give skin that extra dose of radiance. Don’t forget your Force De Vie Crème Luxe for a powerful daily dose of oxygen, Co-Q10, and hyaluronic acid for a hydrating, radiant glow.
Healthy skin tip: Drink lots of water to stay hydrated inside and out. It will help boost your glow and keep your skin ready for family photos and holiday party selfies all season long!
Minimize Stress Where You Can
Air travel, family gatherings, and meeting deadlines during the holidays can make or break your glow. The one place you have control over the added stress? Your skincare routine. Luzern products are always free from irritating and toxic additives that can cause skin inflammation and contribute to early signs of aging. No matter what you celebrate this season, make sure to stock up on your Luzern favorites to keep your skincare regime in check. It’s a simple way to eliminate one more stress from your holiday to do list!
