6 Naturopath tips for maintaining radiant skin this Festive Season

With social events, entertaining and travel around the corner, it can be a challenge maintaining our healthy glow! A lack of sleep, poor diet, the stress of word demands, increased alcohol consumption and dehydration can often leave our skin and body feeling a little lacklustre.

Luckily we have some tried-and-tested inside out beauty tips to keep your skin hydrated and glowing this holiday season. Incorporate the below into your life and we are sure your body and complexion will be singing our praises as you make your way through the seemingly endless string of events and parties glowing and energised!

Glorious Greens

If you are going a bit overboard with sugar and alcohol, ensure you are balancing this all out by having at least a bowl or two of greens. Greens - in particular bitter greens such as arugula, rocket, radicchio, rocket leaves, dandelion, spinach, chicory and mustard leaves - are wonderful liver toners. They also help to increase the creation and flow of bile, the substance that removes waste from the organs and blood. Bitter greens will assist you in digesting your food, in particular, fats so munch on a few leaves before your meal, and they will act as a great aperitif. Greens are also rich in folate and B vitamins which are essential for your body’s energy and detoxification pathways, which tend to become compromised during the holiday season.

Mask It

Late nights, sugar and alcohol consumption quickly show in our complexion. Sleep masks are literally an overnight beauty fix when it comes to dull, red or lacklustre skin. We love targeting skincare issues with the following masks:

If you have dry skin: & Coco Bliss Intensive Repair 

Boost the plumpness of the skin, reduce redness and bring back a youthful glow! Apply this all over the face in the evening as a thick layer and do not remove it. You will wake fresh-faced and in awe of this miracle mask. The secret ingredients include B vitamins and vitamin E, which work to repair the skin, reduce inflammation and eliminate redness.

If you have irritated skin or redness: & Botanical Water Gel 

This lightweight gel combines aloe vera, cucumber, calendula and chamomile, which work to calm the skin, balance oil production and heal scarring and sunburn!

Bonus: This gel contains Prebiotics, Niacinamide and Hyaluronic Acid which work to visibly plump and smooth the skin for a bouncy, youthful complexion!

If you have hormonal acne or need a quick skin pick me up: & Sleeping Beauty Purifying Mousse 

This pink clay sleep mask is a wonderful way to detoxify the skin and promote a clear complexion. Pink clay draws impurities from the skin whilst avocado oil balances hormonal acne.

Intermittent Fasting

When eating excessive calories on a daily basis, as tends to happen during the holiday period, our hunger hormones such as ghrelin and leptin can become imbalanced which reduces our ability to burn fat. Intermittent fasting for one or two days of the week during the holiday season can be a great way to reset your hunger hormones and increase your metabolism even if you are overindulging at times. Fasting may involve restricting calories on one or two days of the week and eating normally on other days or restricting caloric intake to be consumed in a certain time window e.g. only eating between 12 pm to 8 pm.

Liquid Beauty Boosters  

Increasing water intake is something we all know we must do to keep our skin moist and dewy and our body’s detoxification and digestive system intact. Supercharging your water with antioxidant-rich botanicals makes it work even better for you. 

Our Native Plant-Based Collagen Powder provides an abundance of antioxidants along with four times the RDI of Vitamin C per serve, to encourage healthy collagen production and promote a healthy immune system. Mix into a glass of cold water and ice for a refreshing summer drink!

Giving your eyes a pick me up is as easy as a providing them with a caffeine hit. Our & Gold Rush Eye Cream contains coffee extract which helps to boost circulation, keeping the eyes bright and vibrant.

Lush Lips 

A telltale sign of dehydration is parched, dry lips. Definitely not what you want when applying your favourite lipstick before a party! This is because your lips don't contain oil glands, like other parts of the skin, which makes they especially susceptible to drying out and chapping - and is all the more reason to nourish them from the outside to keep them soft, supple and totally kissable during festive season. We love carrying our & Green Goddess Lip Oil, abundant in ultra-hydrating oil including avocado oil, broccoli seed oil, hydrogenated hemp seed oil and jojoba seed oil, with us at all times as our secret weapon!
