Want to look your best in those family photos? Here are four tips for getting your skin in tip-top shape before the holiday season is in full swing.
Upgrade Your Routine
Deep Hydration Serum Stack
If your skin suddenly looks dry and dull, try this stack. These products are excellent for exfoliating and hydrating your skin during the cold dry months. Add the serum to your morning and evening routine for a concentrated dose of replenishing moisture.
Plumping Peptide Stack
Feeling less than firm? This potent anti-aging serum contains peptides and plant stem cells that aid in cell growth and repair. Paired with our Micro-Roller, you’ll notice a significant plumping and firming in your skin.
Skin Brightening Treatment Stack
If you feel like you need a total anti-aging overhaul for the holidays, check out this stack. Specially created for aging skin, this stack is also great for acne-prone skin. It works in synergy both physically and topically to stimulate epidermal growth factors (EGFs) that help speed skin repair. Better skin repair means fewer blemishes, a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and a smoother, brighter appearance.
Get a Professional Peel
Chemical peeling is the application of a chemical solution to the skin to remove its outer layers and it’s one of the oldest beauty secrets in the book. Peels keep skin looking healthy while diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. They can also help eliminate scarring, discoloration, and acne. A professional peel is a good way to get a deeper exfoliation treatment than what you’d experience at home. Can’t get to the esthetician’s office? Try our TCA Multi-Acid Face Peel. It’s gentle enough to use once a week, and over time will give you the same results as a professional treatment.
We've all heard it all before, but it's because it’s true! Eating well is really important for your skin. Since you’re definitely going to be loading up on mashed potatoes and pie come the holidays, start cleaning up your diet now to mitigate the damage of over-eating. How should you approach eating well? Start with superfoods! Here are three that your skin loves.
Native to Mexico, these nutrient-rich seeds have become all the rage among superfood seekers. And it’s no surprise—chia seeds are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and calcium. If you’re not someone who eats a lot of fish, they’re a great way to get plant-based omega-3s in your diet.
Kefir is an ancient drink that originated in Russia. Similar in taste to yogurt, kefir is made from fermented milk and is slightly sour. Its popularity has soared in recent years because of growing interest in probiotics, which are known to boost the immune system and support good digestive health. Good digestive health has been linked to skin health and a decreased likelihood of breakouts.
Tomatoes contain lycopene, an antioxidant rarely found in other foods. Studies suggest that it could protect the skin against harmful UV rays, prevent certain cancers, and lower cholesterol. Plus, tomatoes also contain high amounts of potassium, fiber, and vitamin C.
Continue to Exercise – Even in The Cold Weather!
If you can pull yourself away from that cozy seat in front of the fireplace, you'll reap the benefits of sweating it out in the cold weather. You might even learn to love it! Getting your blood pumping helps flush your pores of dirt and other junk lurking in there. It also helps boost circulation to your face, which can help minimize puffiness and other signs of inflammation. Try getting outdoors for your workout. Not only do you burn more calories when you exercise in the cold, but the cold will also help diminish skin inflammation. Just don’t stay out too long or go out in weather that’s extremely frigid, or the skin benefits will disappear.
