Better Skin for the Holidays

Now is the time to start thinking about ways to freshen skin for those holiday events. It’s best to plan 4-8 weeks ahead so you don’t have a bruise or peeling for the fun nights. If you want Botox or fillers before the holidays, the time to schedule is now!

Think about a series of 3 microdermabrasions, a light peel or just being really regular with all your anti-aging products, especially your Retin A/tretinoin/Renova (the retinoids). Consider purchasing a light scrub like the Dermatologica Daily Microfoliant to use a couple of times a week. Schedule an appointment for a facial with your favorite aesthetician for extra de-stress time – always good during the holidays.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
