Transcript for Best hacks for your skin to get back in shape for the holidays
All Thanksgiving trimmings can take a toll on how your skin looks and feels so we're breaking down the best hacks to help your skin get back to its preholiday glow. We still got a lot of parties to go to. Here to help us is author and beauty expert juanyeh Thomas. Thank you so much for being with us. Patinkin, yes, that's right. Let's start with what we got. This is the holiday time of year. Everybody is so much more indulgent and I've got three quick tips so you can always look merry and bright because your skin always knows if you've been naughty or nice, right? Let me start by asking you, how many times have you been out too late and you just don't feel like washing your face before you go to bed? I do it all the time. We all know it's not what you're supposed to do but you can use a charcoal infused washcloth the next morning. Charcoal is not just coal in your stocking, it's actually a great gift for your skin because it draws out all of the impurities in your skin, right, left over from the night before and the little bit of exfoliation that you get from using a washcloth leaves your skin really smooth and soft and because you're rubbing on your face very lightly, you're boosting your circulation, so you get a lot more radiance. Ooh. We want radiance. Can you reuse that? Absolutely. You can just throw it in your washer and reuse it. Fantastic. Yeah. So before we get to skin care we know the holidays can take a toll on our waistline. Some people may be surprised and are acting, why does it take a toll on our skin? Everything that we love to eat, salt, sugar, wine, dairy lands on our face and can leave us looking puffy, but you can roll back all of those food and wine choices that you used by using a face roller. Now, these are very trendy right now but they've been around for a thousand years or more because they are so fast and so effective at draining all of that inflammation from your face. This is my own Jenny patinkin rose quartz roller. What you want to do is always -- Can we try this? Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. I'll give you a lesson. That's a jade one. The little ones you can target your eyes or your whole face, but you always want to roll aiming for the front of your ears. This is where your lymphatic drainage points are. When you roll that way, you're pushing all of the fluids from your face that are going to drain out through your system and within seconds you're going to see a difference. It's so easy. You can use it on bare skin or on top of like an eye patch or face mask. Speaking of eye patches, I'm not going to call out the boys we have all the boys using eye patches now. When your eyes look tired, I mean, it gives away everything that you did the night before. Absolutely. So you can roll right on top of those eye patches. That's amazing. What's the one tool you recommend to have in your makeup bag? I recommend having a face roller in your makeup bag for sure. That's why I made my own. I feel strongly about it. All right, so we've got some before and after pictures to show you this great tip of using just a Navy blue eyeliner underneath the rim of your upper eyelashes. It's called tight lining. So fast, so easy but that Navy color makes the whites of your eyes pop really well. I love that. Cheat, cheat, cheat. Lower lash line use kind of this peach sand color. I do that a lot. From glow. It just cools off all that heat, that redness that's around your eye. Perfect. Now, if I could do something about all the gummi bears I've
