4 Ways to Prep Your Skin for the Holidays

Holiday parties, houseguests, family photos, winter vacation, and New Year’s Eve. The holidays will be here before your know it- and who doesn’t want to look their best to celebrate all the upcoming festivities?  But where to start?  We break it down for you so your skin can glow with the holiday spirit all season long.

1.     Refresh you skin care routine. As the seasons change, it’s good to have a look at your current regimen and see what needs tweaking. It’s also a drastic time of year for weather conditions which means most people will need to increase their moisture retention and cell turnover with more intensive moisturizing and exfoliation. It’s a great time to add a serum to your routine, pick a thicker moisturizing cream, and increase your exfoliation routine to help generate more collagen during the colder months. You’ll feel your skin is more supple, less dry, and brighter (perfect for all those family photos and selfies with your relatives!)

2.     Get a facial. Talk to your dermatologist or aesthetician to evaluate your skin’s current condition. If you don’t get facials regularly, you could be experiencing congestion, dryness, dark spots, acne and other problematic conditions that could easily be remedied by a custom facial or photofacial. Whether microdermabrasion, hydration, exfoliation is in order, Elite MD can deliver that ultimate holiday glow just in time to shine bright at every holiday gathering.

3.     Schedule a peel. Targeted to smooth and firm fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, oily or acneic prone skin. Your aesthetician will determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. A restorative peel that renews damaged skin with little down time and visible results within days. Most peels targets skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, acne and hyperpigmentation. The Elite MD VI Peel is the perfect peel to get you holiday-ready, it stimulates the production of collagen, for firmer, more youthful skin.

4.     Get your Botox or other fillers done before the holiday rush. Not only is Botox itself completed relatively quickly, it rejuvenates multiple facial areas AND the results themselves are seen right away. Between crows feets, frown lines, vertical lines between your eyebrows and even your necklines, Botox provides immediate results and continuous improvement over the course of 2-3 days after. A perfect holiday pick-me-up with no downtime to get you looking and feeling your best during the most wonderful time of the year.
