Post- Holiday Beauty Survival - The Kit

Feeling sluggish after a week back from the holidays? Looking for a winter beauty boost? Below is my latest post for The Kit. Enjoy!

When champagne flutes are empty and the charm of the snow has worn off, the post-holiday blues can set in and make anyone feel less than beautiful. Here are some products to keep you glowy and giddy enough for people to ask if you’ve already taken a spring vacation.

When the seasonal exposure to sunlight is minimal, the face can appear sallow and sad. Benefit’s Girl Meets Pearl ($34 at Shopper’s Drug Mart Beauty Boutiques) provides a liquid highlighter to bring light to the areas of the face that need it the most. Dab a little under your brow, or onto the inner corners of your eyes for that “I just slept 15 hours” look.


No matter how many products we pack on our skin, if the initial layer is dull, the rest will appear the same. Origins Modern Friction ($40, available at The Bay) is a gentle, natural dermabrasion that rejuvenates old skin. With rich starch, lemon oil and aloe, skin is left without uneven patches or irritations and people will start asking how much your professional treatments are. It’s up to you to share the secret.

Need to refresh those tired eyes from reading holiday Visa bills?
Try the Body Shop’s Natrulift Roll-On ($26.00) for a refreshing eye experience that will hydrate and brighten even the darkest of circles. With pomegranate extract and cool-on-contact roll-on treatment, there will be no more regret about buying that extra sweater last month.

  5. Aside from these products, it is also important to take extra caution on the food we eat as these may also affect our skin. It also essential to drink plenty of water to maintain the skin's moisture.

  6. These are great products to keep and use. If you are fond of shaving unwanted hairs, then you can also include shaving oils or creams to soothe the skin. However, if you want to have those unwanted hairs be removed, then you can try laser hair removal treatment to permanently remove those hairs on the legs and armpits.

  7. Actually, for the more outdoorsy type, it is advisable to keep a close watch on the exposure to sunlight - unnoticed because of the relative temperature.

  8. I love reading blogs and watching videos about the latest beauty products and skin care treatments like laser hair removal, facial microdermabrasion , and more. It is one of my hobbies. I love my skin and I always make it to the point to nourish it. One of my secrets which is not a secret to many is water. I always drink plenty of water to flush away toxin and maintain moisture.

  10. So many products to choose from but what I was really after was one that is for acne treatment. If you happen to have those too, I would be on heaven's arms! Argh.

  11. Girls would do anything to make sure they look attracted. At certain times, the use of products like this is very important in our daily lives. If still not satisfied, plastic surgery in New York is also a possible solution to enhance our beauty.

  12. I happened to have a sensitive skin and my glendale urgent care doctor told me to choose safe cosmetic products to avoid allergies and skin rashes. I hope you have those kind of stuff.
