Our skin can take a beating at holiday time. Sugar, alcohol, cold weather can lead to three rather unattractive (if not plain dreadful) words: acne, dehydration, and dryness. Why not just ask Santa for coal in your stocking? But seriously ladies, take some precaution and save the red nose for Rudolph. Here are four products that I recently discovered that will ward off these for aforementioned evils and keep you looking your holiday best. First, you wouldn’t do out without deodorant so don’t skip hydrating with La Roche–Posay’s Hydraphase Intense Riche. Its double action technology infuses skin with hyaluronic acid reinforcing cellular cohesion. Yup, sounds scientific but does the job. Plus, all products are made with active antioxidant filled water from The La Roche-Posay spring in France. Secondly, checkout Capital Soleil SPF Ultra light Sheer Sunscreen Fluid. I love how sheer it is! So stealth like that it slips right under your make-up without making you look greasy. A third “find” is Obagi-C RX System’s exfoliating day lotion. I apply it to my clean skin and let it go to work! The lotion is like a take home facial without the effort and cost. Finally, all of this moisturized skin needs some color! Try Australian Gold SPF Continuous Spray With Instant Bronzer. A quick and easy spray that will keep you looking healthy and sun drenched when you can’t get way for that winter vacation to South Beach.
