It's getting to be the time of year when you'll soon be surrounded by candy and your salads will be substituted for handfuls of holiday cookies. If you're looking to keep your candy intake to a minimum, these sugary beauty products will sooth your skin while also curbing your sweet tooth. These skincare treats are just as indulgent as a chocolate bar, but will actually benefit your body instead of leaving you with breakouts.
With Sweetest Day upon us, it's time to break out the treats — for your beauty routine, that is. According to National Day Calendar, the holiday, founded by Cleveland-based candy maker and philanthropist Herbert Birch Kingston in 1921, is for showing your appreciation to your loved ones with small gifts. Whether you're celebrating or are just had to Google "Sweetest Day" because you've never heard of it, there's no better time than to #TreatYoSelf to a relaxing night of sweets. Your body will thank you and so will your diet.
There's no better way to celebrate than indulging in a sweet treat that also helps you to de-stress. Smoother skin, silkier hair, and shinier nails are all so much more appealing than the stomach ache you'll get from a giant bag of candy. Whether you're looking to binge on sweets both inside and out today or just to sweeten up your beauty routine, these are the perfect products for you. What's better than a daily treat that won't leave you with cavities?
