The holidays are coming – sweater weather, holiday parties, the fun…the food… oh… yes… the food! But…don’t forget about your skin. The holidays and all the festivities can be hard on your skin so a little advance TLC will go a long ways towards keeping your skin looking and feeling beautiful!
It can seem like a normal and natural part of the holiday season to stay up late and overindulge in food and drinks, but unfortunately, one result can be red, swollen and tired-looking eyes. Give your eyes a little mini “spa treatment” by placing a chilled gel eye mask (or you can simply use cold cotton balls) over your eyes for about 10 minutes. This will help to reduce the redness and swelling.
All those parties are fun but consuming too many cocktails and salty foods can cause the body to retain water and look puffy. Be sure and stay hydrated – water and other caffeine-free fluids, like peppermint tea, can help the body to smoothly digest foods and avoid swelling.
And…don’t forget about maintaining your skincare regimen – even if it’s late, wash off your makeup before you go to bed and get plenty of rest. Acne and breakouts are one of the highly undesirable side effects of stress and are very common during the holiday season.
Tis the season for red lips… and red wine. Both can stain your lips and that combined with the dryness and flakiness from the colder weather can be a problem. Be sure to keep your lips exfoliated and hydrated. One easy tip for exfoliation is to use an extra-soft toothbrush and warm water, gently rub your lips in a circular motion, then rinse2 them, pat them dry and apply a moisturizing lip balm.
Of course, we all want to look our best at all of those holiday parties and now is the perfect time to consider a dermal filler to smooth out those fine lines and wrinkles. With instant results and low risk, dermal fillers have a lot of advantages but they’re certainly not all created equally. Take Bellafill for example: Unlike hyaluronic acid fillers, which often dissolve within a few months, Bellafill creates a lasting improvement in your skin. In fact, the majority of Bellafill patients are happy with their results five years after treatment! Yes – we said … five years! Happy Holidays to you!!
