5 Party Skin Tips You Need to Know for Any Event
End-of-year invitations are already starting to roll in, which means your pre-party skin, hair and body preparation needs to start right now! Laying the groundwork early establishes consistent beauty prep habits so that you can look your best in the coming party season and know what to do for any big events coming up.
Let’s do this!
Tip #1 Establish a Consistent Skin Care Regimen
Statement make-up goes hand-in-hand with party season, and it looks best set against a well-cared for complexion. If you’ve been a little lax with your skin care regimen lately, the lead up to party season is an ideal time to get back into the swing of a regular routine – and it needn’t be arduous. Simply apply a cleanser, day moisturiser and eye cream tailored to your skin care needs and be consistent about using them every day. No excuses! Even on nights when you get home late, you can always take a shortcut by using a cleansing wipe instead of the full cleansing and rinsing step.
Tip #2 Become a Pro at DIY Facials
To give your complexion an extra boost ahead of party season, you’ll need to go beyond your basic skin care regimen and master the at-home facial. Use a cream based cleanser to cleanse your face first and then gently massage face with an exfoliating polish, rinse skin well and apply a face mask to your damp skin to finish of your cleansing mini facial. Once your skin is clean, pat a hydrating serum onto the skin before slathering on a moisturiser. To achieve the best possible results, aim to indulge in this DIY facial experience at least once a week.
Tip #3 Up Your Body Care Game
You’ve found your dream party dress – all you need to do is ensure your body is soft and radiant. Just like your skin care routine, a body care routine needs to be consistent in order to be effective. Start by using a nourishing shower milk followed by a generous application of body moisturiser to encourage hydration levels so that the skin appears smooth and touchable. When applying your moisturiser, remember to pay extra attention to dryness prone spots, such as the knees and elbows.
Tip #4 Lather, Rinse, Repeat Regularly
You’re bound to be doing lots of curling, straightening and blow-drying when party season hits. That’s why you want your hair to be as healthy as possible in the lead-up so that it’s better able to withstand the constant styling. Wash your hair every few days with a nourishing shampoo and conditioner and limit heat styling whenever possible.
Tip #5 Don’t Forget the Finer Details
Accessories may be small, but they have the ability to transform a party ensemble from great to fabulous – and the same goes for nailing the minute areas of your beauty prep routine. For instance, if you want your manicure to pop, then be vigilant with regularly using a hand cream. Or if you’re planning on wearing strappy heels, be sure to frequently massage your feet with a heel balm. Ensuring even the smallest areas of your skin and body are well maintained can have a huge impact on your overall party look and the way you feel.
Now that your beauty prep is underway, let the countdown to party season begin!
