As you shop for everyone on your holiday gift list and fill your schedule with parties and special events, it’s easy to forget about taking care of yourself. As a result, you might start to feel fatigued, stressed, and run down by the start of the new year. Instead of letting holiday stress take over this season, put yourself on your gift list and take some time to indulge so that you can look and feel your best. If you’re the type who’s always thinking of others, here are some tips for giving yourself a little pampering at the time of year you need it the most.
Carve Out Time to Relax
Your schedule may fill up quickly this season, so you might need to put some time on your calendar specifically for relaxation. Maybe that’s a no-stress lunch with a friend or an afterwork massage appointment. However you prefer to unwind, don’t forget to make time for it this season. Tis the season for giving, after all, and you definitely deserve to give back to yourself!
Unplug Your Devices
The holiday season can be overstimulating, and that can translate to visible stress on your face. This can be especially true if you’re always connected to your phone, not giving yourself a break from your work and social obligations. By taking an afternoon or—better yet—a whole day to unplug your devices and stay away from the screen, you can reconnect with your surroundings, ease your mind of stress, and rejuvenate to tackle a busy schedule ahead. Don’t worry—your emails and social media accounts will still be there later!
Schedule Skin Rejuvenation
Mental rejuvenation is important, but when you have work holiday parties and big family events to attend, you may want to have a sense of physical rejuvenation as well. That’s where professional skin care treatments come in. There are many non-invasive, highly effective skin care procedures out there to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, even out skin tone and texture, and reduce that tired look. Your plastic surgeon or aesthetician can help you choose which is right for your skin type and specific concerns. Below are just a few of the options you might discuss.
- OxyGeneo Super Facial – A facial can have you feeling refreshed and relaxed as your skin is treated with the nutrients it needs to regenerate with a more youthful, vibrant appearance. The OxyGeneo Super Facial goes deeper than the average facial, using a special Capsugen tablet that glides over the skin for gentle exfoliation with deep infusion of special nutrient formulas that can repair the skin naturally and quickly. There’s virtually no downtime for treatment, and you will see a noticeable difference in your skin’s appearance when your treatment is complete.
- Clear + Brilliant – For more dramatic improvements in tone and texture in aging skin, Clear + Brilliant is an innovative laser treatment option that is non-invasive and takes only about 30-40 minutes per session. Unlike the Super Facial, you want to have some downtime between treatment and any special events you’re attending, as it will take a few days to see the complete radiant glow that Clear + Brilliant provides.
- Thermage – Skin rejuvenation doesn’t have to be limited to your face. Thermage is a treatment for the face and body that uses non-invasive radiofrequency energy to stimulate the natural repair process in the deep layers of your skin for smoother, tighter skin on the surface.
Splurge on Better Skin Care
The products you use on your skin matter—especially if you have just had a restorative skin care procedure. To give your skin the treatment it deserves at home, stop buying cleansers and moisturizers where you buy your groceries. Visit a med spa to explore the professional products that will cater to the unique needs of your skin and provide a noticeable improvement in the skin’s appearance. With a professional skin care routine, you can be sure that you are avoiding harsh, potentially harmful chemicals that can damage your skin and affect your overall health. You will also know that you are providing your skin with the nourishment it needs to maintain a beautiful appearance, even in the harshest environments.
Ideally, you would select a complete skin care system that includes a cleanser, toner, daily moisturizer, and nighttime moisturizer as well as spot and blemish solutions. You might also look to your med spa or plastic surgery practice for cosmetics to continue pampering your skin with the right makeup to take on your routine.
