Who doesn’t love the endless festivities, food, and family time? Unfortunately, come January, your skin can start to feel (and look) a bit less than radiant. Below we share how you can get things back on track and get your skin back to its former glory!

Step 1: Gentle Deep Face Wash

After a holiday season, your skin needs a deep cleaning—and I am not talking about a quick wash with your go-to face cleanser. You need to upgrade your face wash to get an extra deep but gentle cleansing.

You can grab a face brush to have deep face wash.  However if you have sensitive skin, you would prefer to a gentler face brush, like Kathleen Natural’s advanced Facial Sonic Cleansing Device.  This Device has combined the sonic pulsations with an innovative gentle silicone brush design for a deeper and gentler cleansing. The sonic pulsation can channel through hundreds silicon touch-points to remove blemish-causing impurities and dirt, leaving the skin clearer and lighter without harsh abrasion.

Step 2: Face Mask

Applying a good face mask will leave you feeling pampered, like you are at a spa – a spa at home. At the same time, the face mask helps not only hydrate skin; choosing the right face mask can also tighten, tone and detoxify skin, and help to improve the appearance of your pore and skin texture.

Kathleen Natural brings you our new and exciting range of face masks – Bright Mask, Collagen Mask, Deep Pore Treatment Mask and Dead See Mud Clay Mask. They are all clay masks and help to rid your skin of dirt, dust, oil and pollution. If your skin is feeling dull and tired, try the Bright Mask which is formulated with White Willow Bark and Hibiscus Extracts to gently peel your skin.  If you want to stimulate collagen production, try the Collagen Mask which is infused with Retinol that can ‘tell’ your skin cell to behave like younger cells. If you have blackheads and breakouts, try Deep Pore Treatment Mask which is formulated with Cucumber and Tea Tree Oil to calm and reduce inflammation. If your skin needs to promote a healthy balance of oils, try the Dead Sea Mud Clay Mask to strengthen the skin cell membrane. All our face masks can also act as a therapeutic aromatherapy product to soothe and relax your mood and mind.

Step 3: Hydration, Hydration and Hydration

Staying hydrated and taking on water is a fundamental post-holiday skin care tip. You should look to intake two litres of water a day to maintain your healthy body.  Researchers told us that drinking a good amount of water could help to avoid heat exhaustion and also heatstroke. I can list here a lot of the benefits of drinking water, like helping to flush out toxins, maintaining optimum organ function, relieving symptoms of heat exposure.  I want you to remember that drinking water is not only good for your skin, and also are important for your health!

If you want to speed up you healing process of your skin, you can add one of the most treasured skin care products – Serum. They are easy to apply and deliver tremendous results. No quality skin care routine would ever be complete without a facial serum.

Kathleen Natural brings you three different Serum to care your every needs. If you want adding extra moisture for your skin, try Silk Miracle Essence which is infused with Aloe Vera, Marine Collagen to promote silky smooth skin.  If you want brightening the skin, try our Illuminating Serum which has got 12 potent, natural actives, like strawberry and papaya extracts.  If you are looking for a serum to keep you aging gracefully, try our Anti-Aging Serum which is formulated with natural “power house” coenzyme Q10.

Step 4: Soak

I really noticed that it is likely a soak in a warm bath is not going to make your skin look different. But it really can help to chill out after the stressful day. Everyone needs a pampering night!

Head to our website, grab our all natural aromatherapy body and bath products to enhance your bath and shower experience. Remember to apply a few drops of our Body and Massage oil into the palm of your hand after bathing, inhale the beautiful scents and massage into wet skin immediately after a bath, then gently pat dry your skin with a towel.  You will feel a renewal of your spirit and mind.

Citrus Cheer Duo – it enhances the feeling of intense citrus brightness.

Tranquil Fields Duo – it brings you a sense of calm and inner peace.

Sensual Rose Duo – it enhances the feeling of joy and positivity.

Step 5: Exercise

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, moderate exercise can improve our circulation which in turn can help to give your skin a more youthful appearance. If the gyms are obviously packed this time of year, why not break a sweat at home?

I found below from NHS website. 20-minute equipment-free workouts (including warm-up and cool-down) are just what you need. I think it is very cool.

There are 6 workouts, 1 for every day of the week if you include a rest day, each working on a different area of your fitness.

Try to do 1 of these routines daily to improve your general health and strengthen and tone different muscle groups. The workouts can also be bolted on to your regular workout sessions if you want to tone your abs, legs, triceps or buttocks.

6-minute pre-exercise warm-up

Warm up and stretch properly before exercising to prevent injury and make your workouts more effective. This warm-up and stretching routine should take about 6 minutes.

10-minute cardio workout

Exercise your heart and lungs with this 10-minute cardio workout routine for aerobic fitness. If you have a skipping rope, replace any of the exercises with a 60-second burst of skipping.

10-minute toning workout

Firm up your bum, abs, legs and arms with this 10-minute toning workout. You will need a resistance band for some of the exercises but if you don’t have one, you can use water bottles.

10-minute legs, bums and tums workout

Tone up, firm up and burn fat from your tummy, hips, thighs and bottom with this 10-minute workout for legs, bums and tums.

10-minute abs workout

Tone your tummy muscles and get a flat stomach with this 10-minute abs workout. These abdominal exercises strengthen the muscles around your trunk.

Lose the droopy booty and get the perfectly toned posterior with this 10-minute firm butt workout. These exercises strengthen your buttocks, thighs and back.

10-minute upper arms blaster

Banish those flabby upper arms for good with this 10-minute upper arm workout. These arm-strengthening exercises tone your triceps, the muscle above your elbow.

5-minute cool-down routine

Stretch and cool down after exercising to relax, improve flexibility and slow your heart rate. This cool-down routine should take about 5 minutes.

Wish you all have growing and beautiful skin!
