Christmas is a time many of us long for and looking our best gives us that extra shot of festive cheer. And cheer is what we'll need as the festivities will be very different this year.

Whether you’re able to get together with one or two friends or family or you’ll catch up via Zoom or Skype, you’ll want to greet them with healthy-looking, hydrated skin with the radiant glow you thought you’d lost forever.

So, with Christmas fast approaching, how can you make sure the skin you’re in is your best skin? Hada Labo Tokyo has Christmas skincare all wrapped up and the brand joins with make-up artist and skincare expert Gina Akers to offer some festive must do tips for your skin and your sanity!

1: Hydration, hydration, hydration

It’s what most women want from their skincare, that sustained hydration hit that’s like a drink of water for the skin. Hada Labo Tokyo’s products offer multi-layer hydration, with multiple types of hyaluronic acid to work both on the surface and deeper into the skin. If you do one thing for your skin this Christmas, treat it to Hada Labo Tokyo Anti-Aging Super Hydrator Lotion. All dressed up in its seasonal-looking red packaging, this fragrance-free lotion might look clear and almost watery – but it is a powerhouse of hydration with no fewer than four types of hyaluronic acid, plus collagen and retinol. Use it after cleansing and before your usual moisturiser. It costs from just £16.95/150ml.

2: Don’t leave yourself off the present list

If you’ve got glowing and joined the thousands of UK women who have fallen in love with the Super Hydrator Lotion, you’ll be keen to check out the other products in the range. And now’s the time, because there’s a special bundle of Hada Labo Tokyo skincare available at simple steps – cleanse, hydrate and moisturise – can be completed in the five minutes that one in three women say is all they can spare for their skincare routine.

After cleansing with All-in-One Gentle Hydrating Cleanser, pat a couple of pumps of Anti-Ageing Super Hydrator Lotion, with its four types of hyaluronic acid, plus collagen and retinol, on to the face, neck and decolletage. Follow with Deep Wrinkle Corrector Eye and Mouth Area Cream, then Anti-Ageing Wrinkle Reducer Day Cream – and you’re ready to go. At night, repeat the routine, replacing the day cream with Special Repair Treatment Night Cream with Super Hyaluronic Acid and Tetrapeptides to nourish and hydrate skin while you sleep.

3: Sleep

Skin is the body’s largest organ and it needs a chance to relax and repair itself. Christmas 2020 may just be the perfect time for you to relax, unwind and catch up on your beauty sleep. While you are asleep blood flow to the skin increases helping it to rebuild collagen and levels of the stress hormone cortisol fall, helping to repair damage.

4: Change things up at lunchtime

Your skin is sorted, so what about the Christmas feast? You won’t be cooking for a horde this year, so, seize the chance to make it easy with a top of the range ready meal or push the boundaries and cook up something completely different for lunch – it doesn’t have to be turkey and plum pudding.

5: Keep in touch

Dial up a friend or relative who’s spending the festive season alone and have a proper chat – email and social media are great ways to keep in touch, but there’s nothing like the sound of someone’s voice or the sight of their face on a videocall.

Hada Labo Tokyo is available from Superdrug, online and in-store, and from Amazon. Check out the website –
