Thanksgiving is probably going to look different this year for most of us. With the worries about the pandemic, lockdowns going back into effect and mask orders across the country, fewer of us are traveling during the holiday than ever before.

This means that for many of us, large family get-togethers are being replaced with a day at home with only our immediate family.

Yet, just because the holiday is small, doesn’t mean it can’t be special. And one way to make Thanksgiving 2020 a day to remember is to indulge yourself and pamper your skin with a luxurious at-home facial.

And if you’re not quite sure how to pull that off and get the glowing skin and relaxed body and soul you normally leave your spa with, we’ve got you covered…

#1 – Do the double cleanse

The first step to gorgeously perfected skin is cleansing. And before we start any facial, we opt for the double cleanse technique in order to unclog congested pores and clear away all of the dirt, oils, makeup and other impurities that can irritate the complexion.

For the perfect double cleanse, opt for an oil or lotion based cleanser like our Young & Pure Botanical Cleansing Lotion to start. It’s cleansing perfection even when you’re dealing with waterproof makeup.

Next, move to a water-based option like our Miracles & More Chamomile Face Wash with its Acne-Stop Gel. It whisks away the last of the dirt and accumulated toxins from everyday exposure to pollutions, while calming and soothing your skin.

#2 – Gently exfoliate

Your next step to revealing clear, glowing skin for the holiday is to use a gentle exfoliator, like our 3 in 1 Exfoliate to whisk away dead cells on the surface of your skin to reveal the healthy, youthful cells below and a bright, even, radiant complexion.

Specifically formulated with tripe action, our exfoliator deeply cleanses, peels, and balances skin oils all in one use.

#4 – Mask up

No, this isn’t about the mask you pop on when you head to the grocery store.

Instead, it’s time to detoxify your skin to open your pores so that the actives in the next steps can deeply penetrate and go to work to transform your skin. Our Mineral Mud Detoxifying Mask, with its soothing and purifying blend of arctic mineral mud, contains no fillers. It goes to work to detoxify your skin, while infinitely toning.

The result is silky smooth, lifted skin and perfectly cleansed pores.

#5 – Spritz on

Now that your pores are decongested, your skin crystal clean and your complexion rosy and glowing, it’s time to use a toner to tighten and perfect your pores and begin the process of hydrating your skin. Simply spritz a cotton round with our Miracles & More Face Toner and sweep gently across your face, neck and decollate.

Infused with Aloe Vera, chamomile and Japanese green tea, this soothing toner goes to work instantly to rejuvenate your skin as its cucumber extract and minerals tighten your pores and firm your skin.

#6 – Serum time

After toning, the next step in your Thanksgiving Day facial is to apply serums targeted to address your specific skin concerns. If you’re dealing with deep wrinkles, an increasing number of fine lines and signs of aging such as dark spots, go for our Anti-Wrinkle Extra Strong Serum.

If crow’s feet or fine lines around your nose and mouth are an issue, try our Miracle Face & Eye Serum to help smooth your skin.

You can even mix and match your serums, applying up to three serums at a time. Either whisk them together in the palm of your hand before applying or start with the lightest serum first and work into your skin using a layering technique.

#7 – Deeply hydrate

Finally, once your serum is fully absorbed, you want to lock-in deep down hydration with the moisturizers of your choice.

We love to use our Active Cream around our eyes and lip line. It goes on like silk and tightens and firms skin to combat fine lines. For the rest of your facial area, as well as neck and decollate, try our Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer to banish dehydration. Or if your skin is beginning to show signs of aging such as loss of elasticity, crow’s feet or other expression lines, go with our Collagen Plus Cream to support your skin’s natural support structures and barrier function.

It’s happened to all of us. One day your skin is clear perfection and the next that perfection has given way to a zit or maybe even two. They can pop up out of nowhere and then sometimes you can suffer for days, feeling the zit coming on but not knowing what to do about it.

That’s why we’ve put together our favorite expert tips on how to banish those blemishes, keep your skin crystal-clear and say goodbye to acne worries.

From blackheads and whiteheads to cystic acne, we’ve got you covered.

#1 – Whiteheads no more

First, let’s talk about those dreaded whiteheads.

These blemishes may be small, but their impact on your skin can be huge.

Whiteheads get their name because they pop up with a white “head” right at the surface of your skin. Luckily, you can kick these blemishes to the curb with a few easy steps.

Since whiteheads are caused due to an overproduction of oil that clogs your pores, the most important step if you’re experiencing this type of acne is to switch to a lightweight moisturizer.

For this, we love our Hydrating Mango Face Cream.

This daily cream boosts elasticity and delivers line-smoothing hyaluronic acid for a slight “plumping action”, yet is still light enough to not congest your pores and leave your skin clear.

For whiteheads, it’s also important to regularly exfoliate your skin with a gentle exfoliator that cleans clogged sebaceous glands, regulates their activity and balances skin oils, like our 3 in 1 Exfoliate.

#2 – Blackhead banishing

If you have blackheads on the other hand, here’s what to do.

First, it’s important to know that unlike whiteheads that are closed pockets of oil in your pores, blackheads are open at the surface. This causes an oxidation and results in the blemish’s dark color.

Since this type of acne requires deep-down cleansing, it’s best to use a mask on a weekly basis to pull out the dirt, oils and dead skin cells that build up to keep your pores free of congestion.

Our Mineral Mud Detoxifying Mask is an incredible mix of pure arctic mineral mud, containing no fillers. This unique toning mask detoxifies your skin, leaving a baby smooth feel and works by pulling out impurities from the skin.

Another secret to banishing blackheads is to switch to a lotion or cream-based cleanser in order to dissolve impurities and make whisking them away before they oxidize at your skin’s surface easier than ever.

Our Young & Pure Botanical Cleansing Lotion is specifically formulated to open and deeply cleanse pores, to brighten your skin and prevent occurrences of wrinkles and blackheads.

#3 – Cystic cleansing

Anyone who has ever had cystic acne knows that these types of blemishes are their own animal.

Hard, painful and just under the surface of your skin these blemishes typically appear around your chin and jawline and are often due to fluctuating hormones.

Changing your diet can help banish cystic acne, especially if you give up dairy. For a quick fix, you can also apply an inflammation balancing serum, like our Rejuvenation Serum, directly to the blemish.

This helps to get acne-fighting power directly to the source of your blemish, to calm irritation and redness.

Crystal Clear and Velvety Smooth

And have a miraculous holiday season!

With the weather cooling down and the winds picking up, there’s no doubt that fall is in the air. While the new season brings things to look forward to like the holidays ahead, it can also mean your skin facing new threats that can leave it looking dry, dull and lifeless.

That’s why we’ve put together your three-step plant to grab a natural glow in 60 seconds – one you can use when you wake up in the morning to look and feel your best, or each time your step out of the house so that your glow can shine through, with less makeup.

#1 – Add a little shimmer to your eyes

The first step in your glowing skin makeover is to sweep a little shimmer on your eyes. This helps open up the look of your eye area, so that you look fresh and fabulous.

For this, we love our Star Quality eye shadow. It’s a sugary brown with a delicate gold shimmer. And it’s a shade that will keep you looking like a star all day and into the night.

For an easy amp up, you can also pair Star Quality with Playboy, a softly shimmering, elegant milk chocolate with the tiniest hint of mauve and Shiver, the perfect shade for setting off your lids and making your eyes sparkle as well as highlighting the corners of each eye and your brow bone.

To perfectly apply your shadow, try sweeping on with the tapered end of your beauty blender or makeup sponge. This helps your shadow go on evenly with no fallout.

#2 – Blush a little

Next, you want to add that perfect blush to your cheeks with a shade that works for all skin tones to leave them with a vibrant, rosy glow all fall and winter.

Our fave?

High Five, which gives your cheeks sunset glow. This elegant pink with a hint of bronze shimmer takes you from day to night in a heartbeat.

Simply swish your blusher brush into the shade, tap off the excess and lightly apply working upwards along your cheekbones from the apple of the cheek.

#3 – Go with a gloss

Add a little 3D shine and volume to your lips with a lip gloss.

The rose pink perfection of our Lip Candy lip gloss is our favorite way to amp up our glow for the fall months.

Sweep across your lips to reflect and absorb light and make your lips appear fuller and pretty in pink.

All-in-one glowing skin

To make grabbing your glow easier than ever, we’ve put all three of our glowing skin faves - Star Quality Eyeshadow, High Five Blush, and Lip Candy Lip Gloss into our all-in-one Naturally Glowing Bundle.

So grab your glow today to get ready for fall and winter.

After all, who said you can’t glow as brightly as the lights of the season?
