With festivities around the corner, we all become a little casual about our diet, exercise and daily skincare routine. However this seems to be the most crucial time to maintain it, since the festive times call for late nights, excess sweets, indulging in high calorie food, etc. Well, since we have been so diligent all this while, it’s alright to give ourselves a break. But make sure that we do not over do some things so much that our skin starts reflecting it by breaking out and being dull. Below are a few simple tips to keep you going through the festive season.
1.Start your day with warm lemon water with honey
Starting your day with warm lemon water instantly eliminates the acidity from your gut, kick-starts your digestive system and detoxes your body. Honey acts as a mild antiseptic and gives you enough energy to feel awake and get moving.
2. Eat one full bowl of fresh fruits every single day
During festivals our meal timings are usually erratic with all the activities and guests around. Also our meals maybe erratic and less balanced which may have less of vital vitamins, minerals and fiber. Having a bowl full of fruits ensures enough fiber, vitamins and minerals to keep up your immunity and not feel drained during those late nights, late dinners or too much dancing!

5. Remove every minute trace of makeup before going to bed
No matter how tired you are, it is very important to remove all traces of make up before you go off to sleep. Use a mild make up cleanser to remove your make up, wash your face clean with a mild paraben-free face wash (like SPLURGE Purifying Face Wash). Removing makeup before sleep helps your skin breathe and repair itself.
6. Moisturize thoroughly
Moisturize your skin thoroughly before going to bed with a mild, natural body butter like SPLURGE Cocoa Lavender Body Butter so that the richness of the product repairs your skin and distresses it. It is very important to moisturize your skin in the day with a non-sticky moisturizing lotion with SPF properties like SPLURGE Daily Moisturizer, before stepping out of the house.
Make sure to take care of these little things and your skin will glow with happiness! Enjoy the festive season, naturally!
