5 ways to save your skin during party season

Christmas parties, festivals, work drinks, cocktails with friends, birthday celebrations… Party season has been well under way, but we’re sure you’re not quite ready to end it yet!

In between all the sun, fun, and memories made, we can often forget to look after ourselves. You might find yourself wondering how your skin is going to survive another spray tan and a late night – but don’t fret! The Cosmetic Clinic has five easy ways to save your skin during party season to bring back your natural glow.


Stick to Your Skin Care Routine

Consistency is key and making sure you maintain your skin care routine is a great way for you to get healthy glow at home. Start with a simple four-step routine (cleanse, boost, moisturise, and protect) to help ensure you can stick to your routine during your party season schedule.

Make sure you’re using products that are best suited to your skin and developing a habit of doing your skin care daily. If you’ve found you need help starting a routine, book a free consultation and 520 observe Skin Analysis with one of our experienced technicians and we can help build a routine that’s best for you! Our professional skin care, Balense, is specifically formulated with active ingredients while also using the best ingredients from nature. It’s also cruelty free! We have a range of packages and products suited to different skin types and concerns – just ask our technicians at your free consultation which package is right for you.


Go to the pros!

As much as we’d like to be on point with our routines every day, we’re only human and sometimes we’re going to need some extra help! Receiving professional skin treatments will do wonders in repairing and preparing your skin in the party season. Our Signature 10-Step Microdermabrasion will help tackle dry, flaky skin caused by those dehydrating cocktails by providing a deep exfoliation. Each exfoliation includes a customised peel, further improving the feel, brightness, and appearance of your skin. Don’t have the time in your schedule? An Express Microdermabrasion only takes around 20 minutes!


Pamper your Peepers

We’re all prone to late nights during the party season. This can leave your eyes looking tired and puffy, and we know that the only bags you want at your next event are designer – not the ones under your eyes! There are a few things you can do to keep your eye area looking bright and refreshed, including an at-home lymphatic massage. Just simply grab your favourite eye cream or serum and gently massage around your eyes in a circular motion.

If you’d like a little more TLC, a Micro-Needling treatment at The Cosmetic Clinic can help treat this delicate area. This treatment not only leaves you glowing, it can also reduce scarring, stretch marks, black heads, open pores, fine lines, hyper pigmentation, and more!

Remember, prevention is always better than a cure. Try and get a good night’s sleep as often as you can to help you feel more rested, mentally and physically. A few nights of good sleep can help small things like dark circles be reduced and your skin will begin to look more youthful and rested. They don’t call it beauty sleep for nothing!


Stay Hydrated

While you might not realise it, drinking alcohol frequently, even if only having one or two, can cause your skin to become inflamed and dehydrated. Dehydration takes fluid out of your skin and can cause things like ageing and wrinkles to appear ahead of time. Besides going alcohol free (and staying sun safe), there are other options to help keep your skin hydrated during the silly season.

Skin Hydrators is one of the beauty industry’s best-kept secrets and we’re giving you the inside scoop. The Cosmetic Clinic provides skin hydrating dermal fillers that will help you retain moisture to help smooth, replenish, and hydrate your skin.


Makeup Wipes Must-haves

Our last tip for this party season is to always remove your makeup at the end of a big night. No matter how tired you are, grab your favourite gentle cleanser and do a double wash before you hit the hay. If you don’t trust yourself to do this every time, do future you a favour and leave a packet of makeup wipes next to your bed as a last resort. Try to opt for wipes that are sulphate free, silicone-free, and low in fragrance to avoid any potential irritation!
