When the holidays roll around, along with all the cheer and spirit of the season often comes stress. Between all the parties, family time, gift giving, and caroling, things can get hectic fast and that can leave you with little time for yourself. This year, why not make a vow that no matter how busy things get, you’ll take some time every week to treat yourself—literally. We’ve got eight holiday treat and beauty treatment pairings that are perfect for your next self-care Sunday. From sugar scrubs and cookies to hair masks and cocoa, add these sweet ideas to your holiday skin care routine whenever you need to de-stress.

1. HOT COCOA + HAIR MASK

Sip your extra-chocolatey hot cocoa while showing your hair some extra TLC. During the winter months, cold outdoor air and dry, heated indoor air can wreak havoc on your strands, causing them to feel dry, damaged, and brittle. Since you won’t want to be sipping your cocoa in the shower, reach for a pre-shampoo hair mask formulated to help purify roots and hydrate ends, like the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Pre-Shampoo Mask. To use, apply the mask onto dry roots, leave on for five minutes then rinse and follow your usual shampoo regimen.

2. EGGNOG + EXFOLIATION

Regular exfoliating helps keep skin healthy by sloughing away dead skin cells, dirt, and other impurities. Next time you reach for a glass of eggnog, spiked or otherwise (we’re not judging), give your complexion the attention it deserves with a little gentle exfoliation. Made with cocoa and coconut oil, the L'Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Cocoa Scrub is perfect for this task, as it leaves skin hydrated, refreshed, and glowing.

3. GINGERBREAD COOKIES + CLARIFYING MASK

Before you bite into that delicious gingerbread cookie, layer on a face mask, like the L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Face Mask or the L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask. Each is formulated with three different clays to gently cleanse skin and draw out impurities. To use, apply an even layer of either creamy mask onto clean skin, then wait ten minutes, enjoy as many gingerbread cookies as you want, and rinse!

4. APPLE CIDER + HYDRATING SERUM

When it comes to flavors of the holiday season, is there anything better than real apple cider? We think not! Next time you pour yourself a glass, whether you’re going for hot or cold (we love both!), give your skin a nourishing boost too! Try a potent serum, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum, which plumps and hydrates skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. During the winter months, your skin can almost definitely use an extra surge of moisture, making this serum a prime pick for a pampering sesh. To use, put a few drops of the serum onto clean fingertips and gently massage all over your face. Then sit back, sip your apple cider, and reap the beauty benefits!

5. SUGAR COOKIES + SUGAR SCRUB

Sugar cookies and sugar scrubs pair so naturally together, we just had to include them on this list! Bake a bunch of delicious sugar cookies and while they’re still in the oven, get your sugar fix from a face scrub. Reach for a scrub like the L'Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Resurface & Energize Kona Coffee Scrub, to energize and smooth tired skin and lips. Not sure how to use a lip scrub? We’ve got you covered there too. Here’s How to Use a Lip Scrub Before Applying Lipstick

6. PECAN PIE + PAINTED NAILS

Are the holidays even the holidays without pecan pie? Paired with caramel colored nails, you just can’t go wrong. In addition to drying out your skin and strands, the cold, winter weather can also take a toll on your nails. So, if nail polish isn’t enough to make your hands worthy of an insta pic that shows off your mani, put our 10 Ways to Show Your Hands and Nails Some Major TLC to the test.

7. SHORT BREAD + SHEET MASK

Sheet masks aren’t just for your face! The L'Oréal Paris Everpure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask and the L'Oréal Paris Everpure Intense Repair Hair Sheet Mask are sheet masks for your mane—so cool! To use, after shampooing your hair, twist and wrap hair fully into the sheet mask cap before sealing it with the included sticker. Gently massage the cap to coat hair with the mask, leave on for five minutes, enjoy some shortbread while you wait, then hop back in the shower to rinse. 

8. CANDY CANES + CREAM CLEANSER

When the weather gets colder and your facial skin gets drier and more sensitive, switching to a cream cleanser may be exactly what your skin needs. Try the L'Oréal Revitalit Radiant Smoothing Cream Cleanser, which is formulated to gently cleanse skin and leave it looking smoother, brighter, and more refined. As for the treat to pair with your cream cleanser, our list is about to end and we haven’t mentioned candy canes—the most classic holiday treat. Before bed, wash your face with the cream cleanser but hold off on brushing your teeth so you can still indulge in a candy cane.
