Christmas is just around the corner, and while it may be true that we’ll be celebrating it in a slightly different way this year in order to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe and healthy, there’s no reason not to look dashing!

We give you the ultimate guide on how to achieve the fabulous festive look through a couple of simple yet effective beauty treatments.

Skin Rehab – Treat Your Skin to a Facial

Healthy, glowing skin is the no. 1 prerequisite for a fabulous look, and in winter, it needs some extra love and attention.

Cold winter weather can be very harsh on the skin. Not to mention indoor heating. This winter, our skin is suffering even more, as we have to wear protective masks to stay safe. All these combined, and your skin is probably dry and flaky in some areas, and breaking out in others, and you’ll want to eliminate all these unattractive consequences before the holidays kick off.

The quickest and most effective way to do this is to get a skin cleansing treatment, followed by a nourishing, moisturizing facial.

The so-called hygienic skin facials usually combine exfoliation, which removes those flaky dead skin cells, with extraction of impurities from the pores either manually or with a vacuum machine. Moisturizing treatments are very versatile, from oxygen treatments to oil facials, so call up your local beauty salon and get a customized recommendation suitable for the current state and general type of your skin.

Permanent Makeup for Prolonged Poshness

During the holidays, makeup is a must, no matter if you’re going to a small family reunion, virtually or IRL, or a cocktail at the office. In order to look good in those family photos, we tend to put on layers upon layers of product day after day, and our skin inevitably suffers.

Cue permanent makeup! Permanent or semi-permanent makeup is an umbrella term for a whole range of procedures that recreate the look of wearing makeup on the eyes, eyebrows, lips, and even cheeks, but it stays on for months, even years, without the need to reapply it. This is achieved by injecting organic pigments into the upper layer of the skin, where it stays until it gradually fades as the pigments are broken down and absorbed.

This means no reapplying, running, smudging, and no taking if off before bed, so it’s a great way to unburden the skin.

Our pick for this holiday season is a subtle semi permanent eyeliner that can be upgraded with some glittery eyeshadow for a Christmassy look, or worn on its own for everyday looks once the festive season is over. You’ll be enjoying the results of permanent makeup for an average of 2 years, so treat yourself this Christmas and get a gift that will keep on giving!

Give Your Hair a Break While Still Looking Festive

Our hair suffers during winter. Keeping warm is top priority, but those cozy knitted caps lead to entanglement, ruined hairstyles, and inevitable damage to the strands as we wash our hair more often and comb it more aggressively. So you may want to refresh your hair for the holidays, and the best way to do this is to give it nourishment – and a break.

From Christmas Eve to the New Year’s Eve, you probably have some plans lined up, and since COVID-19 prevention measures advise against the traditional parties, they may be a bit more casual this year. So let’s give our hair a rest and not burden it with crazy hairstyles that imply a lot of heat damage and tons of product.

Instead, get a professional blowout that will last you up to a week without washing. Have your stylist finish off the look with a nourishing oil on the tips, and you’re good to go. A bombshell blowout is the perfect combination of polished and practical, and who wants to spend Christmas Day hassling with hair?

Final Tip

Looking fab for the festive season is nice, but it’s nowhere near as important as staying healthy. So if we’ve inspired you to get a special beauty treatment for the holidays, make sure to book your appointment in advance to avoid crowds and choose a professional, responsible salon that follows all anti-epidemic measures.

Stay safe and happy holidays!
