5 Skincare Tips for a Bright and Beautiful Holiday

The holidays are upon us and you may be sitting cozy by a fire with a bubbly in hand and a cheese plate by your side as you read this, so we’re not about to preach abstinence and moderation is so boring. Besides, darling, it’s the holidays and we love to celebrate as much as you do. Eat, drink and indulge away as long as you also nourish and care for your skin.

The Furtuna Skin experts have put together a primer for keeping your skin glowing and clear through the holidays so that you can light up every room you enter. Discover our five quick tips to solve the biggest skin challenges of the season.


The best part about the holidays is the deliciously tempting food and drink. But all those frosted cookies and festive cocktails can leave your skin looking puffy, dull and as ruddy as Rudolph’s red nose. The sugary content can cause glycation, which can accelerate skin aging and trigger the formation of free radicals.


Drink a glass of water with every cocktail to stay hydrated. And apply Porte Per La Vitalità Face and Eye Serum morning and night to keep skin hydrated as well. The antioxidant-rich serum is proven to inhibit free radical formation by 100%. It contains a healthy cocktail of botanical vitamins and nutrients that help restore skin to optimal condition, reduce puffiness and even out a blotchy red nose and cheek area, caused by indulging in one too many.


Between gift shopping and party hopping, who has time to sleep during the holidays? Late nights and lack of sleep deprive your skin of the time it needs to repair itself. During sleep, the body is in repair mode, mending tissues and regenerating cells. Without sufficient rest, your skin starts to look tired and dull and puffy bags under the eyes make you look as fatigued as you feel.


Set a curfew during the week and carve out some time for a good night’s sleep. Before you hit the pillow, and again in the morning, apply Porte Per La Vitalità Face and Eye Serum to cleansed skin. The brightening skincare formula enlivens luminosity and transforms a tired complexion into a face that radiates health and vitality. The two-in-one concentrate is designed for both the face and eye area and is clinically tested for eye safety. It restores youthful definition with a lifting action as it helps banish signs of fatigue such as under eye puffiness and lines.


The hustle and bustle make the holidays exciting but juggling work with a party-packed agenda can also make it stressful. Add family drama, crowded quarters, holiday traffic and travel delays, and suddenly the stress snowballs out of control, causing your skin to go from beautiful to broken out.


Do something relaxing for 15 minutes each day. For some self-care TLC, turn on some soft music, sip a cup of calming herbal tea and give your skin a soothing vitamin bath with Porte Per La Vitalità Face and Eye Serum. The silky light elixir absorbs in a flash to fight flare-ups and help prevent holiday-stressed skin. It treats your complexion to restorative, nutrient-packed wild botanicals such as Anchusa azurea, asparagus and chicory, in a nourishing olive oil base. Shop online for our serum and escape the holiday stress fest.


Tis the season for turning up the glamour. You’re piling on more makeup for all the holiday soirees and photo ops. Dramatic makeup looks add glittering allure to party couture but all that putting on and taking off can be rough on skin.


Moisturize your skin to create a smooth, polished base for flawless makeup application. Use a natural skincare formula that also nourishes, calms and protects. Our soothing serum, Porte Per La Vitalità, contains wildly potent botanical nutrients and antioxidants known to help with irritation and protection. Beauty bonus: you can add a drop of serum to your foundation. And it works beautifully to refresh your makeup later on. Tuck it into your evening bag and pat it on top of your makeup on a quick trip to the powder room for a clean, non-greasy glow. And no matter how late you get home from that gala, remove your makeup before bed because sleeping with it can suffocate pores and lead to breakouts. Resist using a drugstore cleansing wipe and do an extra gentle double cleanse instead.


Your social calendar is about to get flooded with holiday invitations. To get party-ready, you may ask your esthetician for a cosmetic procedure to amp up your glow. Remember that all those pre-holiday peels, lasers and fillers can leave your skin red, dry and needing time to recover and heal.


Post procedure, it’s important to support the healing process by protecting and reinforcing the skin barrier. Porte Per La Vitalità Face and Eye Serum provides the ideal after treatment. To help skin heal itself so it recovers before party season begins, the serum bathes the complexion in vitamins, moisture and protection. Made with potent botanicals from our Sicilian Farm, our wild skincare formula helps restore the natural protective barrier, relieve dryness, and protect against inflammation for healthy-looking skin.

Going to the spa? Don’t be afraid to bring Porte Per La Vitalità Face and Eye Serum to your esthetician and let them know that they can use it with their LED lights and oxygen masks to amplify the benefits of the product. Spa-tested. Esthetician-approved. Party-ready.

Furtuna Skin wishes you a bright and beautiful holiday season.
