Overindulging during the festive season does no good to your skin. Bruce Green, founder of SOS Serum Skincare, reveals how it goes hand in hand with some skincare dilemmas.
Holidays And Your Skin, What Bruce Says...
"First of all, we throw our healthy habits out the window and enjoy many alcoholic beverages, and eat more sugary treats, fatty foods. Alcohol is a diuretic, which forces water out of the body making it harder to rehydrate. It can cause the skin to look sallow and make pores and fine lines more visible. Sugary foods can result in a quick rise in blood sugar which can cause a spike in insulin. This jump can increase skin and hair oiliness leading to inflammation and potential breakouts. But this isn't me saying not to enjoy yourself! Here are a few tips that can help your skin this festive season."

"This is the big one. For every drink of alcohol, drink a glass of water – the one for one rule. Water flushes out toxins and restores your hydration levels."

"I know it's tempting after a sparkly social evening to reduce or even skip your facial cleansing routine but DON’T! After hydration, this is the next most important factor to protecting skin from party fallout. But be gentle and use a non-alcoholic, mild or no perfume face cleanser. SOS Cleanse (£15) is perfect for this as it is lightweight and rehydrating."
"Give exfoliation a miss until your skin cell regeneration batteries are re-charged. Follow cleansing with natural non-fragranced serums and moisturisers like our SOS Serum (£15) that delivers comfort, moisturisation and protection to the skin."

"Take advantage of an alcohol-free night in your schedule and have an early bedtime. Your body, mind and skin regeneration is crucial and you will instantly look and feel better for it."

"New cosmetics, skincare products and perfumes will often come to you as Christmas gifts but don’t slap them all on at once or your skin could have a freak-out! Wait until your skin has settled and balance restored before trying out a new skincare formulation; your skin could reject something for all the wrong reasons."
With these expert tips in mind, you can be sure that 'festive skin' can be healthy and glowy for the new year!
Meet GoBo. The naturally nurturing, a breath of fresh air for your underarms! Utilising the powerful properties of glycolic acid - already proving highly popular in deodorant products over in the USA - GoBo creates beautifully smooth and soft underarms that can sweat naturally without the inconvenience of embarrassing odour.
We girls have tried GoBo here at Fashions Finest, and we can promise that it really does live up to it’s promises. For the two weeks we have been using this roll-on, we have experienced the subtle, pretty but not overpowering scent, and all day freshness it brings. This roll on deodorant is the UK's first AHA-formulated deodorant that effectively eliminates odours whilst allowing your body to perspire naturally.
Pesky bacteria is killed deep within the dermis while the top layer of skin is gently exfoliated, removing dead skin cells - both of which contribute to the dreaded B.O. The result is a natural 'deep-clean' which helps eliminate deep stubborn sweat and grime build-up - ideal to detox your underarms from years of heavy deodorant use in order to switch to a natural aluminium-free deodorant.
Naturally nurturing, GoBo can also be used between skin folds and under breasts to prevent or neutralise body odour. For excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis, GoBo can be used under an antiperspirant deodorant to prevent odour and then can be reapplied throughout the day if persistent body odour occurs.
Fashions Finest loves the natural active ingredients, which are actually good for your body, and not harmful, as many deodorant ingredients can be. Fragranced with natural floral waters, GoBo is aluminium-free, paraben-free, alcohol-free, essential oil-free and made in the UK.
GoBo's formulation also provides added benefits for healthy underarms, including helping to prevent in-growing hairs and painful blocked sweat glands and fading dark pigmentation caused by shaving
GoBo Deodorant is £9.99 and available from Lamonts and Co. Get online now, and do your skin a favour with GoBo Deodorant. We love it!
