How To Reboot Your Skin After The Holidays

These grooming tricks will bring your face back from the dead.
Comments

The stress of the holidays (or even just a particularly hard week) can put a serious toll on your face, making it look dull, dark, and tired. To remedy your ghoul face, zero in on this six grooming steps in your routine. You'll be back to your normal self in no time.

1| Spot Corrector

You can cure acne, but the dark marks they leave behind are reminders of your former pizza face. Turn to spot lighteners that can work in as quick as a week. Our pick, Neoretin Discrom Control Serum, is a de-pigmenting solution that works on the phases of melanin production, dark spots, acne scars, and discolorations. Just apply directly on your spots at night and watch them fade away.

2| Moisturizer

News flash: All skin types need moisturizing—even oily skin. But what oily skin doesn’t need is a product that contains, well, more oil. Look for moisturizers that are oil-free and non-comodogenic (that means it won't clog up your pores) like the Neostrata Texture Perfecting Cream. Apart from providing non-greasy hydration, the moisturizer shields against environmental damage as well as prevents breakouts thanks to its AHA concentration.

3| Eye Cream

The skin around your eyes is thinner and more sensitive than the rest of your face, so yes, there is a point to using gentler eye creams (versus your regular moisturizer). A favorite, the light and fragrance-free Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream deflates puffiness and infuses moisture. This is eight hours of sleep in a bottle. Greenbelt 5

4| Sunscreen

We know you hate putting stuff on your face, but give the TiZo3 Age Defying Fusion Facial Mineral Sunscreen a try. It sets on the skin like skin, smoothens your complexion, and improves tone, all while preventing those wrinkles and dark spots you'd otherwise get from sun exposure. Also, this is waterproof.

5| Lip Scrub

Flaky lips can be as unpleasant as bad breath, and many times a lip balm isn’t enough of a solution. The Sara Happ Brown Sugar Lip Scrub is an effective way of exfoliating your lips. Just dab a generous amount over your puckers and scrub dead skin away. No rinsing required—just wipe off with tissue. The exfoliating sugar crystals are mixed with essential oils that soften and smoothen skin, too. Do this every other night. Beauty Bar

6| Mask

Slathering on a treatment mask seems like something only your girlfriend would do, but, with the benefits of this powerful anti-aging product, you will not care about the stereotype. The Perricone Chloro Plasma Mask has bursts of chlorophyll—yes, the same stuff that makes plants green—which, when applied over the skin, deeply detoxifies, smoothens lines, and shrink pores. Just massage over the face and watch the gel texture turn into clay (that's when the phytonutrients begin activating). Rinse off thoroughly after it dries. Rustan’s Makati
