How to Take Care of Your Stressed-Out Skin this Party Season

Party season is here! But before you let the good times roll, take a moment to consider your skin. While late nights socialising with friends might feed your soul, it can lead to stressed-out skin. 

Being tired or stressed can make your skin more reactive and your pre-existing skin problems worse. 

You don’t want to face January with extra acne scars, dull skin, or more lines. 

The good news? You don’t have to choose between having a good time and taking care of your skin. Here are our top tips for keeping your skin looking luminous this festive season. 

Care For Your Stressed-Out Skin Inside and Out 

We asked Dr Andrew R. Christie, Clinical Director and Global Medical Trainer, what he’d be doing this year to maintain a glowing complexion throughout the party season. His top advice?  

“You are what you eat. Maintaining a good diet and exercise regime throughout the party season helps reduce the signs of skin fatigue and blemishes. I find ÜBER PRO, even as a standalone treatment, to be the perfect skin weapon that supports a healthy lifestyle.” 

Hydration is crucial to healthy-looking skin no matter which hemisphere or season you’re in. Make sure to drink enough water and top up your skin’s moisture levels with Hyaluronic Acid. HYLA ACTIVE is an HA-rich formula with 3 molecular weights which means it can penetrate the deeper layers of your skin. 

Don’t Skip the Cleanser 

always cleanse

If you’ve been staying out late and balancing daily demands, the first thing to slip can be washing your face at night.  

“I’ll do it in the morning”, you promise yourself. And then you hit snooze a couple of times, and before you know it, the window for washing your face has passed again. 

Leaving makeup on traps free radicals on your skin. These little nasties are responsible for breaking down collagen and can lead to the appearance of premature ageing. 

Not only that, but you increase your risk of acne and breakouts. So, before you crash, make sure to take 5 minutes to clean your makeup off properly. 

If you need a little motivation to cleanse in the morning or night, the ECO LUX CLEANSING SET has the right tools to make it an experience you’ll look forward to. The lush set contains Konjac sponge and incredibly soft bamboo cotton cleansing pads so your skin is in for a real treat. Simply work in your favourite Dp Dermaceuticals cleanserTRI PHASE CLEANSER or CLR FOAM CLEANSER for problematic skin. Your skin will love it! 

Protect Your Skin from The Elements

Perhaps you’re out walking among the snowy pines, or maybe you’re Downunder (like us) hitting the BBQ party circuit. Either way, you need to create an effective barrier between your skin and the outside elements. 

Ready to meet the power trio that can help you do this? 

After you’ve cleansed and prepped your skin with appropriate serums and correctives, apply a penultimate coat of SKIN VENEER. The skin’s natural barrier function inspired this peptide-packed moisturiser to keep your skin carefully protected from environmental conditions. It’s perfect if your stressed-out skin is feeling the effects of sensitivity, xerosis, dermatitis, or eczema. 

Then veil your face with COVER RECOVER. Enjoy the cool, breathable mineral sunscreen protection and get added anti-ageing benefits. As a bonus, COVER RECOVER calms and covers irritated, inflamed or otherwise stressed-out skin so you can make your entrance to any party with confidence. 

And if your party season is centered around the warmer months, don’t forget to protect any exposed skin with a good quality sunscreen. BARRIER BODY BUTTER provides high UV protection while locking in intense hydration. It glides on smoothly and can also be used on your faceit’s the perfect choice for protection, head to toe.
