We share the ultimate KORA guide to getting your glow on in time for the social season.
Holiday season is a time for enjoyment with a myriad of invites to end-of-year events and family gatherings. Some of us even refer to it as the social season.
So the question naturally arises, how do we prep our skin to look our best for upcoming celebrations?
Whether you need to be in front of a camera—or embracing more self-love practices just for you—our decided to share our ways to uplift and prep our skin with our favorite KORA Organics rituals.
A De-Puff Facial Ritual
A facial massage is a gift for your complexion.
The act of massaging your skin innately stimulates facial muscles, and enhances the flow of oxygen to inspire lymphatic drainage. This then helps to dissipate the build of fatty tissues under the skin and to encourage plump, healthy skin as a whole.
It’s actually quite easy to give yourself a spa-worthy facial massage <LINK>. We suggest doing so with our Rose Quartz Heart Facial Sculptor, several times a week as we know your skin will thank you with serious glow.

A Mask, Moisture, Massage Ritual
This pre-party routine is a favorite to cleanse, renew, and prime the skin for make-up—and as easy as it is efficacious.
Brighten your complexion with an integral deep cleanse featuring our Turmeric Brightening and Exfoliating Mask over your face and décolleté.
Fuse the abundance of antioxidants and essential fatty acids from above, with a supple skin massage. Our Rose Quartz Heart Facial Sculptor can help you here to awaken lymphatic activity and reduce puffy-looking skin.
A double cleanse with any of our cleansing blends is suggested to start this skin ritual. Read about it in detail here.
Cold therapy, AKA, Cryotherapy uses ice-cold temperatures to boost a radiant complexion.
Our Beauty Expert, Kylie Wells, says that, “Ice is a powerhouse as it locks up, and closes down, blood vessels in areas of swelling and puffiness; freezing nerves in the process too.”
Making an ice water facial a desired prep tool for temporary skin tightening and de-puffing of the skin. A plunge into ice-cold water for a few moments can also reduce redness and eye bags.
If you’re not game to immerse your face then we suggest storing your Rose Quartz Heart Sculptor in the freezer, for a cooling and refreshing facial drainage massage when you need it most!
Uplift with Serum Staples
Our skin serum staples ordinarily brightens in the morning, and rejuvenate at night. Yet, our skin saviour, if you have 30 mins spare, is to use them back-to-back for pre-party glow.
Firstly, after cleansing, apply the Noni Night AHA Resurfacing Serum for 15mins to remove dead cellular turnover—ensuring you stay out of any sunlight while you do so. This is important as AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) can make the skin sensitive to sunlight.
After washing this layer off thoroughly, apply the Noni Bright Vitamin C Serum generously and massage the blend deep into the skin to nourish (and leave on.)
You can then apply your layers of moisturizer and then face oil to prime your skin for make-up. Or revel in soft skin for a ladies night in!
KORA X NuFace
Although the NuFace Trinity is only currently available in the US—it’s your best friend when it comes to facial toning. As well as improving facial contour and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As we said, your best friend!
It also only takes five minutes a day of consistent and continued use via a device and a downloadable app—all FDA approved—to prep and prime for any social event.
As we have recently shifted seasons, winter in the Northern Hemisphere and summer in the South. We suggest shifting your moisturizer choice too!
Yet if you are coming into summer and prefer a lighter day moisturizer, perhaps the Active Algae Lightweight Moisturizer is something you want to try.
It is a lightweight, bouncy and gel-like formula designed to give long-lasting hydration without excess shine. For all skin types—yet if you have oily, blemish-prone, or younger skin—we think you would love with this formulation.
The same being said for those experiencing the cooler months of winter. The dewy Turmeric Glow Moisturizer is a thick, rich and creamy formula made to deeply nourish the complexion and invite bright skin in moisture-draining times.
Let it be known, that both our blends are amazing for priming make-up. Here is a quick watch of Patrick Tan priming Miranda’s skin with KORA.
Glam Natural Glow
Add color to your cheeks and lips, and a natural glow to your face with the KORA X RMS Love Life Collection.
A dab of our Rose Quartz Luminizer is also revered to add highlights to the face on the brow bones, cheeks and cupid’s bow, with subtle chic.
We loved this cute watch as HRush primes Miranda with KORA, and then teaches her how to contour.
Glam Body Glow
We say our new body trio is a facial for your body, for a reason.
We adore the ritual of cleansing, scrubbing and moisturizing for smooth and supple holiday skin. Which also works to prime the skin before applying a faux tan!
Whatever your intention for this season, we send our love to glow through the holidays with your loved ones!
