We see the holidays as the perfect season for gifting our loved ones. But we say indulge in it as the perfect time to treat yourself, too. Before the year — the decade, actually — comes to a close, celebrate yourself and your milestones. What better way to do it than by caring for your skin? Whether you’re stressed or happy, it shows on your skin. So make sure you treat it with care.
But you don’t have to cross out your schedule to indulge. No matter your holiday plan, there’s a way to pamper yourself and your loved ones with products that are simple but pure — just what belif products are known for. Created with nothing but the best and purest ingredients from all over the world, they’re free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates and synthetic preservatives, synthetic dyes, synthetic fragrances, mineral oils, and animal origin ingredients. The best part of all? They provide lasting benefits. Ready to get pampering? Here’s how.
Schedule a Christmas brunch
Starting the day off with your favourite people is just one of the best things to do during the holidays! Make sure your skin’s as bright as the day you’ll be sharing with the help of belif’s White decoction skin radiance set.

Wine and dine with the gals
‘Tis the season for hearty meals — and some drinks. Take the holidays as an excuse to indulge in that meal you’ve been planning to have for months now at your favourite restaurant. Then, cap it off with wine — we definitely encourage it. After satiating your cravings, nourish your skin.
Before heading off to sleep, massage on some of the extra-hydrating Aqua bomb sleeping mask 75ml from the belif Ultra nourishing bomb duo set. This sleeping mask has a memory formula — it wraps and seals intense hydration around the contours of your skin. It also has a jelly-pudding texture you’ll love indulging in. Best part? It’s pillow-proof — so you can sleep soundly, without fear of stains.

For daytime, you can go for the cult-favourite The true cream - moisturizing bomb 50ml, which contains Comfrey Leaf that detoxifies the skin, Napiers Moisture formula that hydrates, and Napiers Original Formula that calms and repairs the skin. There’s also the Cica bomb cream 50ml, a.k.a. the Stress Shooter. Aside from the Napiers Aqua Formula and Napiers Original Formula, it’s made with powerful antioxidant and skin-soothing Centella Asiatica — great for shooting away the signs of stress on your skin. If a lightweight, oil-free gel-cream that refreshes the skin is what you fancy, the skin-loving The true cream - aqua bomb 50ml is for you. Made with a variety of herbs, including Lady’s Mantle, it helps fight off free radicals and improves the skin’s elasticity for skin that’s hydrated and smooth.
