Bold, festive holiday beauty looks are all well and good — until your skin starts to protest with breakouts. “With awareness of photos, selfies, etc., it’s likely you’ll apply more makeup than usual. This may lead to clogged pores,” says Dr. Francesca Fusco, a dermatologist at Wexler Dermatology.

9. You Don’t Drink Enough Water

Water is basically the elixir of life: It’s vital to all of your body’s processes, including keeping your skin looking bright and healthy. “Alcohol, salty appetizers, etc. can all dehydrate skin, so it’s important to drink a lot of water for skin to appear dewy and fresh,” says Dr. Fusco. Throughout the day, keep a bottle of water (like this adorable one from bkr, which comes with Hum Nutrition’s Daily Cleanse supplements) or cup of green tea to sip on.
