If you want to be the first in line to steal a quick kiss under the mistletoe this Christmas, nothing says attractive better than healthy, radiant skin. The Myth Minx gives her top 5 Skinstitut tips and tricks to get the perfect skin for Christmas.
- Banish congestion and blackheads by removing all traces of party make up before you crawl into bed. Mix a small amount of warm water with a pea size amount of Gentle Cleanser and work into foam. Massage lightly over the face for a couple of minute and rinse off. The added antioxidant boost of olive leaf extract and goji berries combined with soothing and calming aloe and cucumber and set to have your skin calm, radiant and replenished in no time.
- Get your glow on. The quickest way to look radiant is remove dull, devitalised skin cells. If you have an all-important party coming up take 1 pea size amount of glycolic scrub, mix with warm water and gentle massage over the face. Concentrate on the forehead, nose and chin as these tend to be thicker areas of skin. For oily or acne prone skin, leave the scrub on for up to 90 seconds for an intense exfoliation. Rinse with warm water and get ready to glow.
- Hydrate. Skin lacking superficial hydration leads to an impaired barrier function leaving skin, dehydrated, devitalised and prone to sensitivity. For an extra hydration boost apply your favourite Skinstitut moisture defence over damp skin to seal in extra moisture. It also makes you moisturiser last longer.
- Instant pick me up. For an instant radiant pick me up, mix a grain of rice amount of vitamin C powder to 1 pea size amount of Eye Believe. Apply to the entire face and neck for a firming flawless finish. Can be used under make up as a make-up primer or as a radiance finishing treatment for men.
- Use the Multi-Active Mist If the outdoor party heat is getting you hot and bothered stay cool and hydrated with Skinstitut multi active Mist. With added skin brightening ingredients such as licorice and vitamin B3 this wonder mist provides nutrients, nourishment and hydration during hot summer months. The mist can be used post shaving for men and post make up application for women to provide a setting finish for mineral based make ups. Apply moisturiser over the mist for an intensive nutrient rich hydration boost.
