9 Options for Curing Post-Holiday Skin Problems
There are a lot of factors that come to play in the quest for good skin, from sleep and stress to hormones and general health. However, diet and skin care might be one of the most overlooked parts of the puzzle. The trouble is, at this festive time of year, healthy eating tends to go out of the window and your skin suffers because of it. You’re in luck though! We delve into 9 different solutions for helping your post-holiday skin problems to speed up the clock for that pimple or seriously dry skin!
Why Skin Care and Diet are Linked
So many skin experts agree that food can fuel good skin and even say diet is a huge factor when it comes to good skin. It’s much easier if you can identify four types of face problems that occur from eating certain foods and this will certainly help you combat future diet slip ups from causing unwanted skin issues:
- Sugar Face (which causes the onset of, among other things, forehead wrinkles)
- Wine Face (including redness and nasolabial lines),
- Dairy Face (complete with dark circles, jaw acne, and small white spots)
- Gluten Face (triggering pigmentation and puffiness)
It’s important to know that different foods can have very specific effects on the face – and fast.
Don’t think that it takes years for eating badly to manifest; with some foods, it can take as little as a weekend of overdoing it for your skin to develop signs such as acne, puffiness, changes in skin tone, premature fine lines and wrinkles, sagging, loss of luster, or dark circles under the eyes.
If you want to mitigate the effects of a less-than-healthy diet—because we’re all human and we have to live our lives, which means drinking wine and eating festive treats during the holidays—then keep reading. Below, we’ve rounded up the nine best products that will keep your skin looking its glowy, healthy best. It may not be a long-term solution, but if you’re looking for a quick fix or even an instant reset, these products will have your (skin’s) back:
- An Exfoliating serum
- A Spot Treatment
- Cucumbers as a DIY Eye Mask mixed with Hyaluronic Acid (depuffing and hydrating in one)
