Christmas is sneaking up on us. Most of us I’m sure still have our heads in the sand pretending it’s not really happening. Furthermore, not in a few weeks time. And how do you have a radiant Christmas inside and out as well?
Having high energy and radiant skin is important
There will be plenty of partying, going out, eating, drinking, and having fun with lots of stress and high emotions. We love to indulge and enjoy all the deliciousness of Christmas fare.
My favourite is Christmas pies. My mother had the best recipe. Once we made 120 for an afternoon tea. You should have seen our production line. Now, I’m digressing.
Not only that there will be late nights, lots of makeup, and our daily routine will also go out the window. And this will affect our energies and our skin. What to do?
I’ve created a list of things for you to do that are easy to implement and keep doing once all the celebrating has come to an end.
- Take 5 minutes each day for yourself
pause and take a couple of deep breaths
(here’s short relaxation meditation to listen to)
- Keep a glass of water at hand at all times
this helps keep those fine lines in check and your body nicely hydrated
(add some lemon or watermelon to make it tasty and act as a diuretic)
- Have quiet time to re-energise
we all need is a few moments of peace and quiet to collect our thoughts and emotions
(find a sanctuary somewhere in your home or garden)
- Give your energy an extra boost
do some form of exercise or movement – a great time to dance to your favourite Christmas carols
- Be kind to yourself and choose how you want to respond
yes, you may be driven mad by family and you can choose how to respond
(create a mantra and repeat it when you need)
- Remove makeup each night
it’s important to give your skin a breather ready for the next day
(use my natural cleanser)
- Go makeup free where possible for radiant skin
when you are having your quiet time give your skin a rest, too
- Use a serum for an extra boost at nighttime
this is your sleeping beauty bestie, the work is being done as you sleep
(here is my recommendation)
- Enjoy using essential oils to get you into the mood
to help you have a radiant Christmas use orange, cinnamon, and clove
these are uplifting and happy oils
- Put up one Christmas decoration that you love
whether it be handmade or bought from somewhere special
something you can look at that makes you smile when all you want to do is scream
And have the most amazing radiant Christmas. If you have any other suggestions, please share in the comments so we all can see what else we could do.
Love you to share this with anyone you think would benefit from these ideas.
