5 Ways To Prep Your Skin For The Party Season

5 Ways To Prep Your Skin For The Party Season

As the party season approaches, it's time to start thinking about how to get your skin looking its best. After all, you want to feel confident and radiant when you step into those festive gatherings!

In this article, we'll discuss five simple ways to prepare your skin for the festivities to come, with the ultimate winter skin care routine, so you can look and feel your best.


1. Cleanse On Repeat

Before applying any makeup or specific skincare products, it's really important to cleanse your skin thoroughly. Cleansing removes dirt, impurities and excess oil, and prepares your skin for the next steps in your skin care routine, allowing it to breathe and absorb products effectively.

Especially during the winter months, a natural oil-based pre-cleanser works best to effectively cleanse the skin whilst also hydrating where needed; this should be your first step.

Next, select a gentle cleanser suitable for your skin type and cleanse for at least 60 seconds to ensure a deep clean and enhanced circulation. A thorough cleanse gives your skin the fresh, clean start it needs to be the best base for your party makeup. And once it's time to clean the canvas at the end of the night, repeat your cleansing routine to remove all the makeup, keeping your complexion healthy and radiant.

2. Exfoliate For A Glowing Complexion

Exfoliation is a vital step in any skincare routine, especially when prepping for a special event. By sloughing away dead skin cells, you reveal a brighter and more radiant complexion.

Choose a gentle exfoliator and use it 2-3 times a week. Focus on areas prone to congestion, such as the nose and forehead. Remember, less is more when it comes to exfoliation, as overdoing it can lead to irritation and redness.

For around-the-clock radiance, add in an enzyme peel to recharge and resurface skin. Enzyme peels tend to give an immediate smoother and brighter complexion.

3. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Proper hydration is key to achieving healthy, glowing skin. During the party season, it's easy for your skin to become dehydrated, especially with the cold weather and late nights.

Make sure to drink plenty of water and eat high water content foods throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated from within. Additionally, invest in a serum and natural moisturiser suitable for your skin type for use both morning and night.

Serums are designed to deliver high concentrations of a particular active ingredient to the middle layer of the skin, providing a plumping and brightening effect. Remember: moisturisers do not moisturise, they are designed to prevent moisture loss! So, be sure to adequately hydrate your skin using a serum and/or facial oil before applying a moisturiser.

For your winter skin care routine, look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides, which help lock in moisture and keep your skin plump and supple.

4. Never Forget Your Sunscreen

Although it may not be summer, sunscreen is still an essential part of your winter skin care routine. Even during the colder months, UV rays can still damage your skin and lead to premature aging.

Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, even if you'll be indoors most of the day. Take extra precautions if you'll be spending time outside during daylight hours. Remember, protecting your skin from the sun's harmful rays is crucial for maintaining youthful-looking skin.


5. Treat Yourself To A Facial

Treating yourself to a professional facial before the party season can work wonders for your skin. A skilled aesthetician will assess your skin's needs and perform treatments such as deep cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration.

Facials can also help target specific concerns, such as acne or uneven skin tones. Book a facial a week or two before your first party to allow your skin time to recover and maximize the results. Your skin will thank you for the extra pampering!


SenSpa offer a wide range of facials to meet all skin needs and goals.


Preparing your skin for the party season doesn't have to be complicated. By following these five simple steps in your winter skin care routine – cleansing, exfoliating, hydrating, protecting, and treating yourself to a facial – you can achieve a healthy and radiant complexion that will turn heads at any event. Remember, consistency is key, so make these skincare habits part of your daily routine and shine this party season!
