These Are the Products I’ve Used to Help My Skin Recover From a Season of Holiday Parties

Original Article

‘Tis the season for holiday parties…and breakouts, and dark circles, and dry skin, and sensitivities. Read on to learn how the editor of The Klog is taking care of her complexion from now until New Year’s Day. 

It may be the most wonderful time of year for my social life, but for my skin? Not so much. The consistent late nights, a change in diet and hydration habits, and increased stress levels, not to mention the fact that I’ve been wearing more makeup and spending less time diligently going through my skin care routine, are really starting to show on my complexion. 

Since I’ve got a sneaking suspicion I’m not the only one doing damage control after a month of back to back fêtes, I’m sharing the six products that I’m using to revitalize my holiday party-ed out skin.

A Charcoal Sheet Mask 

I am often too lazy (are you sensing a theme here?) to use wash-off clay masks, plus they can be too drying for my skin during the winter. That’s why I was so excited to try the Mediheal W.H.P Brightening & Hydrating Charcoal Sheet Masks for another Klog article earlier this year and they did not disappoint. 

The masks contain charcoal powder to purify pores, plus niacinamide – one of my favorite ingredients for a glowing complexion – and lots of hydrators.
