Nowadays, it seems as though we need to be cautious of just about everything. The blue light emanating from our devices, the potentially unecological ingredients in your sunscreen, leaving your sheet masks on for too long... the list is inexhaustible. Another area in beauty grappling our attention recently: holiday skin.

As we clear the decks for Christmas soirees and prep our feet to all-night dancing à la Selena Gomez in 'Taki Taki', we run the risk of neglecting our tried-and-tested daily skincare rituals. Even the most diligent amongst us may fall through the cracks. In other words, crash on our silk sheets before removing our makeupHow long can we keep up this streak before our skin catches up to our sins? We wonder aloud, as this brews up the perfect storm for dehydration, roughness, and signs of premature ageing on our face and body.

If you think we're just scaremongering, picture yourself checking your tagged photos on Facebook. What catches your eye is not how banging your body looks in that shiny number, but your dry, flaky patches, so glaringly obvious there's no point hoping people won't notice them. Party 1, complexion 0. But no worries, where maintaining healthy glowing skin is concerned, we'll let these body products perform their magic.
