COMPLEXION PARTY PREP
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, right?
Translation: Put a little time into bettering your skin prior to the holidays, and you won't be worrying about pre-party breakouts or a dull visage. Rather than slough off skin with grainy exfoliants, look for chemical peel pads, with ingredients that soothe redness, shrink pores and give glow in just one swipe. Add a overnight facial treatment to your routine that gives serious glow. Look for one with Vitamin C that smoothes, firms and brightens--all while you're getting in your beauty sleep.
