(BPT) - With the drastic drop in temperatures also comes the most festive time of the year. The holiday season isn’t just the cheeriest time, but also the busiest. With so many upcoming holiday celebrations to look forward to, you’ll want to make sure you not only look your best, but also feel your best! We can all use some extra fuel during the holiday season, so here are a few tips to help you create your own pre-party ritual this holiday season to help you do more all season long!
Taking the time to plan ahead will alleviate last-minute stress and make you feel super organized as you get ready. Best practices to consider adding to your pre-party ritual include:
Drink More Water: Staying hydrated helps maintain both your energy levels and mood, so that you can feel your best.
Eat Clean: Trying to eat clean the day before or on the days leading up to your event will allow you to feel less bloated, more energized and overall healthier.
Get Enough Sleep: Hitting the hay early the night before a big party is a must-do. Getting enough sleep will help prevent dull and dehydrated skin, dark circles and a fuzzy brain — it’s something you will thank yourself later for!
Pick Your Look Ahead of Time: No one wants to be running around before an event finding nothing to wear, so pulling your final look together in advance of the party is crucial to your pre-party ritual!
THE DAY OF
The things you decide to do or the items that you use on the day of your event can really set the tone for how much you enjoy your holidays — so be selective! Recommended must-haves for your pre-party ritual include:
Me-Time: Incorporating me-time when you wake up in the morning is a must. A 20-minute yoga or meditation session will help you feel centered and refreshed and provide you with a clear mind to take on the rest of your day.
Choose Makeup Fueled by Skincare: Using makeup with added skincare benefits can go a long way when it comes to looking good this holiday season, and for your overall skin health. The new Neutrogena Healthy Skin Radiant Cream Concealer is the flawless fix to your skin’s imperfections!
This lightweight, skin-perfecting concealer covers dark circles, acne and blemishes and blurs the look of fine lines for a smooth, creaseless finish for those moments that you need a little more as you’re bouncing from holiday party to holiday party. Use it as you get ready or throw it in your clutch and take it along for a mid-celebration touch-up!
The Perfect Ensemble: Dressing for the holidays is always fun because you can step away from your everyday look and wear your finest for some extra glitz and glam. From festive attire to a classic LBD paired with favorite festive jewelry, to a standout red dress with fun heels — pick out an outfit that expresses your personality or your mood.
RIGHT BEFORE YOU HEAD OUT
As you head out for the night, make sure you’re ready with the necessities and for emergencies. Pack mints or gum, pain meds, bandages and remember to bring a phone charger. Make sure you’ve packed your concealer and all necessary beauty products for quick touch-ups throughout the night.
Creating your own pre-party ritual for this holiday season will help you relax and enjoy the celebration.
