Beat Holiday Breakouts: Keep Skin Clear This Season

We all know that the stress of the holidays can take a toll on our skin which can lead to breakouts. Add in late nights of holiday party hopping and who can blame a girl for crashing as soon she gets home without washing off her makeup and the grime of the day? We asked an expert, Dermatologist, Director of Ethnic Skincare at University of Miami and Co-founder of Specific Beauty, Dr. Heather Woolery Lloyd to see what really happens when you skip the evening scrub in favor of sweet slumber. Dr. Llyoday says that "when you sleep in your makeup it can become comedogenic and cause breakouts. By removing makeup every night can prevent these holiday flares." She also suggests skipping the harsh scrubs for something more gentle. "Gentle exfoliation in the winter is important because the skin is much mores sensitive, so avoid harsh scrubs that contain sharp edged particles," quips Lloyd.Perfect for the tired or forgetful (or tipsy) girl, who can't muster the strength to wash up at the end of the night, yet doesn't want breakouts are the Specific Beauty Exfoliating Cleansing Cloths. These affordable and easy-to-use double sided wipes - one side has textured beads for exfoliation and the other side is a smooth for easy and gentle makeup removal - require no rinsing or water so there is no excuse to clean your face. The wipes are fragrance, oil and alcohol free and contain a blend of Aloe, Green Tea and Vitamin E to soothe and calm the skin. The Specific Beauty Exfoliating Cleansing Cloths are hypoallergenic and are gentle enough for daily and nightly use. Leave the wipes bedside if needed, and that way waking up will be much prettier!
