Holiday season beauty tips

Holiday season beauty tips

It's that time of year again, when you're pulled from one party to the next, enjoying late nights, cocktails and good food while running on minimal sleep. But as you celebrate the holidays, your skin could be suffering. Here are some tips to ensure your skin is party-ready and looking fabulous the entire season.

Don't let stress get your skin down. The list of stressors during this joyous time of year can be endless. From parties, holiday shopping to hosting out-of-town guests, don't forget to take time for yourself. Unwind, relax and consider doing most of your gift purchasing online to save time.

Treat yourself. While you're buying gifts for others, gift yourself too. If relaxation and great skin are your ultimate goals, then pamper yourself with a Silk'n Titan at-home device. This rejuvenating wonder uses the same technology offered by leading dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons. It reduces fine lines, wrinkles and superficial sun and age spots, while lifting facial contours, and retails for a fraction of the price. It also provides an amazing base for your makeup.

“The Silk'n Titan is a great tool to use before going to an event. Use it for 20 minutes on each cheek before heading to a party to plump your skin and get a youthful glow,” says Dr. Stephen Mulholland, renowned Toronto- based cosmetic surgeon.

Balance indulgences. Holiday cocktails can be hard to pass up, but moderation is important. Overdoing it with alcohol may not only leave you feeling horrible the next day, but can also leave your skin looking lifeless and puffy. The same goes for the copious amounts of party snacks and sweets — if you can cut back, your skin will thank you.
