4. Stay in Balance
If you have time, try to get a facial a week or so before all of your holiday festivities. This will help to restore the moisture balance to your skin, and give you a natural holiday glow. If you don’t have time for a facial, use hydrating facial cleansers and serums, exfoliate and use a humidifier.
