your holiday skincare survival guide

your holiday skincare survival guide

The holiday season is known as one of the most joyous times of the year. It’s about being with your loved ones and making memories that last a lifetime. But, with the holiday excitement comes changes to our everyday routines … which can affect your skin. Don’t worry, though. We’ve put together a holiday skincare survival guide with important tips for keeping your skin looking and feeling healthy all throughout the season.


  1. Protect your skin with vegan probiotic skincare.

When you think of the holidays, chances are cheerful words like merry, holly and jolly come to mind. Many look at this time of the year with complete fondness and deep nostalgia. But, while it can certainly bring happiness, it can also create stress for others. This holiday stress can then take a toll on the skin … unless you use vegan probiotic skincare. Vegan probiotics are found to protect and strengthen your skin’s delicate microbiome, or skin barrier, against bad bacteria, hormonal imbalances, free radical damage and of course, stress! This helps boost your skin’s elasticity, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brighten skin tone, and improve moisture absorption for a healthier complexion. You can find our signature ingredient in every single glowoasis product. Learn more about vegan probiotics here.


  1. Travel-size kits will keep your skincare routine on track.

Between those visiting family near and far and others vacationing to warm-weather destinations, traveling is at its peak around Christmastime. While some may use this as an excuse to stray away from their regular schedules, that definitely doesn’t have to be the case with travel-size skincare kits. They’re compact and portable, so you can just pack them in your luggage to take anywhere and everywhere you go. Our cleanse mini duo vegan skincare kit, powderporefect powder-to-foam enzyme cleanser minis and glow to go vegan skincare kit even meet TSA carry-on restrictions. With our kits, you will never have to sacrifice your skincare routine around the holidays.


  1. Always remove your holiday glam by the end of the night.

During the holidays, our social calendars are PACKED. From ugly Christmas sweater parties with friends to office get-togethers and even family gatherings, there’s plenty to celebrate. And, obviously for these special occasions we want to look our very best which often means putting on a full face of makeup. We’re talking smoky eyeshadows, black eyeliner, foundation, concealer, and a bold, long-lasting lipstick. But, when the party’s over, we can’t stress enough how crucial it is to remove all that makeup. Leaving it on overnight can clog your pores, cause irritation and breakouts, interrupt cell turnover and lead to signs of premature aging. Oh no! Thankfully, our makeupmelt cleansing balm takes off every bit of your makeup, without stripping away any moisture. For a deep, double cleanse, pair makeupmelt with cloudcleanse cloud-whipped foam cleanser. You can shop both facial cleansers together with our double cleanse kit.


  1. Make sure to get a full night’s sleep.

It’s no secret that a good night’s rest is beneficial for your overall health and wellbeing. It’s commonly recommended that you receive 7-8 hours of sleep a night to better your mood, strengthen your immune system, enhance productivity and yes, improve your skin. A lack of sleep can increase collagen breakdown, which may result in visible signs of premature aging like wrinkles and decreased elasticity. Your skin also repairs itself while you sleep, so if you’re not getting enough hours, it can throw this process completely out of whack. We understand it can be a struggle to get your beauty rest with the hustle and bustle of the holidays, but trust us, it’s a total must for keeping your skin healthy during this time of the year.


  1. Enjoy holiday snacks and treats in moderation.

If you’re anything like us, we look forward all year long to the delicious goodies synonymous with the holidays. Candy canes, gingerbread cookies, hot chocolate, cheesecake and eggnog — what’s not to love?! But, while you definitely should treat yourself, it’s important to recognize that these tasty treats can impact your skin. Filled with sugar, salt and/or dairy, these items can cause skin irritation and breakouts, clog pores, retain moisture and even contribute to premature aging. With moderation and vegan probiotic skincare, you can still enjoy the holiday treats you love without wrecking havoc to your skin.
