There are so many things to look forward to in December, whether it’s your company’s Christmas party or a festive night out with friends. It is, after all, the season to be jolly! It’s also a time when many of us gather together to enjoy the end of the year at a huge event. It’s all about boutique bars, fine dining, and exciting party spots. Preparing for festive parties can be a lot of fun! However, it can also make you feel a little tense at times. There’s a lot to be done and a lot to consider. So, where do you begin?
That’s why we’re sharing our seasonal health, beauty, and skincare preparation advice this month at Cannuka, so you can look and feel amazing this festive season.
How to get your skin ready for a party
When you take care of your skin, the rest of your health and beauty routine becomes much easier. Consider it a vital step before moving on to items like cosmetics. Maintaining a skincare routine during the holiday season, no matter how busy you are, will help you attain a natural and healthy glow – even during the darker, winter months.
3 step skincare
Before you start experimenting with sparkly, festive makeup looks, we recommend these three steps for perfectly moisturised and glowing skin – Exfoliate, hydrate and prime! As the weather cools, our skin becomes more susceptible to dryness. Although it may be tempting to use thicker moisturisers, you should concentrate on removing the dead skin cell barrier. This can aid in the appearance of brighter, healthier skin, as well as the absorption of topical hydration treatments. Although it is tempting to be harsh on the skin with exfoliation, only do this 2-3 times a week at most, to let your skin recover on the other days. Use Cannuka’s Harmonising Face Cream with CBD and Manuka Honey to reduce any redness and lock in all that moisturising goodness!
Not just the face!
Typically, when we think of skincare, we think of the face and neck area. Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and it requires special attention. This is especially true in the winter when many of us hide behind thick sweaters, coats, tights, and winter boots. We tend to overlook our bodies’ skin because, quite frankly, we don’t see it nearly as often in the winter as we do in the summer. The festive season, on the other hand, is also known as the party season! Elegant ensembles, glittery gowns, gorgeous clothing – and, of course, more skin on display – are all part of the package. This might be worrisome at times! So how can we take care of our skin, which has been hiding under fluffy jumpers all season? Cannuka’s Nourishing Body Cream contains not only anti-inflammatory CBD and rich Manuka honey, it’s also infused with skin-loving hyaluronic acid and aloe vera, with a stunning citrus scent. This body cream is ideal for everyday use to keep your skin moisturised all winter long.
The winter months can make lips extremely chapped, as they’re constantly exposed to the harsh and cold weather. Before putting on your favourite lipstick for a night out, it’s essential you moisturise the area first, as lipstick isn’t going to sit well on dry and cracked lips. Try Cannuka’s Hydrating Lip Balm, lightly scented and rich in Manuka Honey, this formula is perfect to use as a lipstick primer to ensure your lips look beautifully moisturised all night long. This lip balm can also be used as a nighttime repair treatment to soothe and condition cracked lips.
Post-party skincare recovery
We all know the feeling of dehydrated skin after a night of overindulgence, the one thing you need to do ideally on the same night or the morning after, is hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! We recommend our miracle CBD balm as the ultimate recovery hero, packed with rich manuka honey, calming CBD and hydrating rose hip oil. Use it as an overnight mask to rehydrate the skin and get your glow back!
Most importantly, at Christmas…
