6 Ways to Get the Glowiest Skin For the Holiday Party Season

Before you hop on the party train for the holiday season, ask yourself this: is your skin ready to “glow” all out for the party season? If your skin’s been low on glow lately, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. We know the dry, wintry days can take a toll on the skin (think: dehydration, acne breakouts, dull skin, dark circles and etc), so here are a few ways to switch up your winter skincare regimen that’ll revive your skin during the holiday so you can look your best and brightest everywhere you go. Whether it’s going back to the basics or doing the extra step for a boost, follow this guide to save your skin so it’s never low on glow!

1. Lighten up!

Don’t let hyperpigmentation and dark spots dull your shine. Yes, they can be quite stubborn but, with the right brightening elixir and ingredients like vitamin C, retinol, niacinamide, they will no longer overstay their welcome. Add the PURITO Pure Vitamin C Serum to the mix to help boost your skin’s clarity and even out your darkened skin tone.

This brightening solution is a cocktail of vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, ginseng root extract + curcuma longa root extract. This powerful team of ingredients not only helps reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and dark spots, but it also improves wrinkles and skin elasticity. Not to mention this multi-tasker is free from paraben, ethanol, surfactant, artificial colorant and fragrance. Just a little heads-up for the people with sensitive skin, do a patch test first to see how your skin reacts to it and adjust the amount gradually from there.

2. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!

Don’t go easy on your face cream. Get a big scoop and slather it all over your face to keep your skin dewy and hydrated throughout the day (and night). Tons of K-Beauty lovers swear by the COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All In One Cream when it comes to snail mucin skincare products.

3. Spot treat acne breakouts

Count on an effective spot treatment or acne cream this holiday season to treat your inflamed, blemished skin to save you the time concealing it with a high coverage concealer (which can sometimes make things worse for your pimple).

5. Get sheet-faced

And if you're lucky enough to find a sheet mask as heavily loaded as the BEAUTY OF JOSEON Centella Asiatica Calming Mask, love it, treasure it, and slather on the every single ounce of essence there is in the sheet mask pouch to let your sensitive skin fully soak up the nourishment before applying the mask itself.
