Many of us are both excited and anxious to be able to get glammed up, go out, let our great hair down, and hit the dance floor this year after missing out on the office parties and holiday gatherings last year. But, of course, in addition to the never-ending festivities, there is the task of shopping for gifts and coordinating just about everything else. So it is no surprise that you are frequently perplexed about how you will manage to get everything done while still looking like an empress when you arrive at the party!
Listed here are some of the steps you should take to ensure that you look your best in every photo – including those that will unavoidably be shared on social media – as well as some tips on hair, skin, and beauty preparation.
Make a routine for your skin.
While it is too late to make a massive difference through healthy eating, exercise, and better sleep for your Christmas party, it is something you should be striving to do anyway – think to all of those parties in 2022! However, it is not too late to bolster your skincare regime. Take your makeup off before bed, invest in a quality moisturizer and whipped body mousse for super smooth skin.
Fix up your feet
Whether you are wearing sultry stilettos or elegant ballet shoes, we can all agree that calloused and dry feet do not go well with any outfit. Use a sugar scrub on your hands and feet once or twice a week, then moisturize them before putting on a pair of cotton socks for the evening. When you wake up, your feet will be silky and supple, ready to take on all of the dancing,
Make your hair healthier.
You should have a healthy hair care regimen regardless of whether you are going to a party or not, but if you have been skipping conditioning to beat the morning rush, it is time to step up your hair game. Lay off the heat styling tools for a couple of weeks, or at the very least, make sure you are using a heat protection spray.
Everyone knows that exfoliation is the first step toward radiant skin, but it can be a literal pain if done incorrectly or too frequently, so do it once a week in the weeks leading up to your special occasion. Light and delicate exfoliants should be used on the face, lips, and body when exfoliating. The skin you want to have is radiant and younger-looking, not irritated and itchy.
Drink plenty of water
Late-night revelry, booze, and a poor diet are the bane of your skin’s existence; thus, keep it moisturized and hydrated to guarantee that it is well-equipped to withstand all of these sources of suffering. Make sure to drink lots of water during the day, as well as another glass before bed, and to use a high-quality moisturizer every day.
Let your hair down
Our final piece of advice is to take it easy and let go of your worries. You can look incredible, but if you feel self-conscious and tense, you will not shine in the way you desire. Remember, you are there to let your hair down and have a good time – so make sure you do just that and have a great night.
