5 Tips to Help Your Skin Look Its Best This Holiday Season
One of the benefits of living in San Diego is the comfortable year-round temperatures. Although you don’t have to worry about frigid, dry air affecting your skin as it does in some parts of the country, you do want to keep your skin looking and feeling its best all year long.
The elite skin care team at All About Me Medical Day Spa in San Diego, provides personalized skin care and innovative aesthetic techniques to keep your skin healthy from within so you can have a glowing complexion this winter and every day of the year.
We offer these 5 tips to help your skin look its best this holiday season so you can attend family gatherings, work parties, and portrait sessions putting your best face forward.
1. Moisturize daily
It goes without saying, especially as you get older, that one of the secrets for keeping your skin young and healthy is a good moisturizer. It’s a good idea to change your moisturizer with the time of year, too. For example, perhaps you needed a heavier moisturizer during the summer months because you were spending more time at the beach and out in the sun.
If you’re spending more time indoors, lighten up on your moisturizer. Our skilled medical aesthetics team can help you select the moisturizer that’s just right for your skin type.
2. Continue to wear sunscreen
Even though the temperatures are mild, the sun’s rays can still age your skin faster than you’d like. Before you head out and about running errands and shopping for the holidays or enjoying lunch at an outdoor café, remember to apply sunscreen to your face, neck, and hands — areas that typically get the most sun exposure.
Sunscreen protects your skin and helps prevent the early signs of aging. It keeps your skin moisturized as well.
3. Stay hydrated
Your skin needs hydration from the inside, so be sure to drink plenty of water during the holiday season. At this time of year, you may have a tendency to indulge in caffeinated beverages, alcohol, and other party favorites that you don’t normally drink, and these treats can leave you feeling dehydrated.
Start your day with warm water and lemon to rehydrate your body when you first wake up and be sure to carry a bottle of water with you to sip throughout the day. Staying hydrated can do wonders for your body and your skin all throughout the holiday season.
4. Exfoliate your skin
As part of your skincare routine, remember to exfoliate regularly. You can exfoliate your face as well as your whole body, to help get rid of dead skin cells that leave your skin looking dull and tired.
5. Schedule a customized skincare treatment
Because you want to look your best for all the upcoming holiday festivities, now is the best time to schedule a customized skincare treatment.
