The holidays are such an exciting time of year. Between shopping for gifts, spending time with family and friends, and hosting out-of-town guests, your social calendar is likely to be very full this December. And while celebrating the season is definitely fun, it can also be stressful. In order to look your very best for all of those holiday get-togethers, it’s important to remember to take care of yourself too. Follow these simple tips to stay beautiful throughout the holiday season.
Start with the Basics
True beauty begins with the basics: proper diet and adequate hydration. For youthful, glowing skin, drink at least eight glasses of water per day and make sure to nourish yourself with healthy foods. Include lean sources of protein, healthy fats, and plenty of fruits and veggies. And put down those Christmas cookies and eggnog! Overindulging in alcohol and sugary foods can lead to inflammation, acne, and premature aging.
Get Enough Sleep
Finding time to accomplish everything on your to-do list can definitely be a challenge during the holidays. But sacrificing sleep can take its toll on your physical and mental health, not to mention your looks. So get your beauty rest—you should aim for about eight hours of sleep each night. Not only will you have more energy to tackle those errands, but you’ll also wake up to bright eyes and glowing skin.
Gift Yourself a Beauty Pick-Me-Up
The fall and winter months are actually an ideal period to indulge in cosmetic treatments, since you’re likely to have less sun exposure this time of year. Intense pulsed light, or IPL, is a non-invasive way to refresh and rejuvenate your complexion. During an IPL treatment, a laser is used to absorb sun damage and other discolorations, heal the skin, and enhance collagen production. Most patients opt for a series of IPL treatments, and the result is fresh, even-toned, glowing skin—just in time for the holidays.
Botox is another great way to refresh your skin this holiday season. Opt for Botox if you find that you’re looking a little more tired than usual, as this injectable treatment is a wonderful way to freshen up your look. One of the fabulous things about Botox treatment is that it’s quick. In fact, treatments typically take just a few minutes and there’s no downtime involved, so this is the perfect procedure for the busy holiday season.
