by Paige Exell -

Between holiday dinners, brunches and festive evenings with friends and family, the holiday season can often seem more exhausting than relaxing – especially if Christmas-themed mixed drinks are involved! And just when you think you have a second to relax now that the holidays are over, we're reminded that New Years Eve is quickly approaching in just a few days!

Since most of us would like to feel completely energized, refreshed and beautiful for the glamorous night, Get The Look is giving you everything you need to do to prep for the big night – which means masking any signs of fatigue! Our gift to you? A guide to the ultimate holiday detox!

HOLIDAY DETOX: HOW TO PREP FOR NEW YEARS EVE

CLEANSE THOROUGHLY WITH A PURIFYING EXFOLIANT

To combat dull, dehydrated skin, there's nothing better than a deep cleansing routine. In addition to your daily cleansing routine, exfoliate your skin once or twice before December 31st rolls around. Make sure to opt for a formula that won't be too aggressive on your skin, as the skin already becomes weakened by cold winter weather. Exfoliating will remove any dead skin cells and give your skin that gorgeous, healthy glow for NYE! Simply apply the exfoliating scrub to damp skin and massage it into your face in circular motions. Rinse thoroughly and reap the benefits!

RE-ENERGIZE YOUR SKIN WITH A MASK

If you plan on spending your time before NYE relaxing in front of the television, take the opportunity to perform L'Oreal's Pure-Clay Mask on your skin. To regain radiance to your skin, opt for the black formula with charcoal extracts that will add luminosity to your skin. Apply it evenly onto dry skin, then let it sit for about 10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly to remove all product from the skin and watch your skin transform!

GIVE YOUR SKIN HYDRATION BOOSTS AT NIGHT

In the winter, our skin tends to get dry and dehydrated – especially if cocktails are involved in our winter festivities. To moisturize your skin and restore hydration, cleanse your skin as you normally would before bed, then apply a moisturizer onto damp skin to let it penetrate while you sleep. In the morning, re-apply moisturizer before starting your day and your makeup routine.

PERFORM A RESTORATIVE HAIR TREATMENT

If you've used hot tools to create gorgeous holiday hairstyles more than a few days in a row, fix your damaged hair by applying a mask that will restore life and vitality to your hair. After shampooing your hair, apply a generous amount of product (the hair mask of your choice) onto the ends of damp hair. Leave it on for about 5 minutes then rinse. If you don't have a hair mask, use coconut oil to restore hydration to your ends!

TRY A FESTIVE DIY MANICURE

To stand out this New Years Eve, create nail art on your finger tips that will compliment your festive, glamorous look. The nail trend to look out for in 2017? Chrome nails! For more manicure inspiration, click here!
