As we gear up for Christmas and New Year parties, your face will thank you for the TLC it receives in the weeks and months beforehand. There’s little to be gained from last minute fixes the day before a festive bash, and trying out a harsh new mask or peel could do more harm than good; who wants a bright red allergic reaction to contrast with the glamorous little black dress?
