The holiday season can be a stressful time of the year! Between all the holiday and family plans, it can be a busy time of year. It’s proven that stress can affect your skin and with the temperatures lowering, your skin could probably use some TLC. It’s important to take care of yourself as well as your skin!
In this season of giving to others, it’s essential to give back to yourself as well. Follow these 5 tips to keep your skin looking merry and bright throughout the holiday season. ‘Tis the season for glowing skin!
Give Your Skin Some Love
Treat yourself to a facial this time of year! A refreshing winter facial is a great way to rejuvenate the skin and restore moisture. The right facial will give you glowy and bright skin. We have our own student spa at Skinworks! Here are a couple services you can choose from:
- Relaxing facial: includes a consultation & skincare analysis provided to help you with your home skincare routine
- Advanced exfoliation: a skin analysis will determine which is right for you
Skinworks Student Spa makes available the same quality treatments that expensive spas and salons offer at a significantly lower price. Student treatments are observed and assisted by licensed skin care instructors.
Trade in the eggnog for water! Hydration is important not only for your health, but also for your skin’s health! An important tip for glowing skin is easier than you think. Sometimes the answer is to just consume more water! Staying hydrated can eliminate toxins that cause blemishes and breakouts.
Most people assume they don’t need sunscreen in the winter. But that’s false! The sun’s rays are always active, even when you don’t think they are. The sun can affect your skin even during the coldest months of the year. There are many sunscreens available to purchase that can give you the results you want, while providing a little coverage as well.
Get Your Beauty Sleep
Not getting enough rest can suck the glow right out of your skin! Your skin is going to be one of the many things in line for benefits from sleep. Skin produces new collagen when you sleep, which prevents sagging. It’s a part of the repair process! More collagen means glowy, plump skin.
Pack On Extra Moisturizer!
The winter can be a bad time for your skin. It’s during these months that your skin can become dry, dull, flakey, and tight. Using a good moisturizer is key to locking in your skin’s natural moisture. It will enhance the moisture content of your skin as well as improve smoothness. With regular use of moisturizer, you’ll be on the road to hydrated and bright skin.
