New Year’s Eve is almost here, which means that the majority of girls have already started thinking about their splendid outfit for the hottest party of the year. Even though the search for the perfect dress and heels might be extremely frustrating, there is nothing as important as the fabulous outfit. Another immensely important requirement in order to look dashing is flawless skin. Here are a few tips on how to take care of your skin properly.
Old skin cells piling up on the surface of your skin always make it look dry, dull and rough. This leads to excess oil, clogged pores, acne and blemishes, as well. However, as your skin simply needs to look flawless at New Year’s Eve party, you should take the first step and exfoliate it properly.
This treatment will remove dead cells and uncover healthy ones below. Exfoliating cleansers containing sea salt are amazing, especially if you go for the one with round grains instead of irregular ones. The latter can cause skin lacerations which may not be visible to the human eye, but can cause numerous serious damages.
Additionally, homemade exfoliating scrubs can do the job, too. First, they are a way cheaper than commercially made ones. Most importantly, you will know exactly what ingredients they contain. For example, as one of the most fantastic natural exfoliants, coffee boosts collagen production. One tablespoon of coffee combined with another one of olive oil makes an inexpensive face scrub that will make your skin look fresh and radiant.
As soon as temperatures drop, your skin becomes dry and tight, usually with some flaky patches. This is exactly why moisturising is a crucial skincare step after exfoliation. A good scrub will allow the good face moisturiser to penetrate into your skin much better.
In order to hydrate your skin properly during cold days, always choose the one that fits your skin type. Gels are great for oily skin, creams for dry, organic moisturizers for sensitive and serums for normal skin type.
All you need to do is apply a small blob of moisturiser by gently massaging in a circular motion. If your skin feels a bit tight afterwards, apply a bit more.

There are so many different treatments, either invasive or non-invasive that enhance your look in a short period of time. Beauty treatment including fraxel laser is just one of such procedures that are popular even among the celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston and Liz Hurley.
