4 Key Ways to Beautiful Skin During the Holidays

It’s the time of the year when the weather outside is starting to get frightful – cold, dry, and stormy, and the air inside is warm, cozy and delightful.   While you’re shopping, cooking, and celebrating this season you will be exposing your skin to these elements, couple that with the eating and drinking and late nights that come with holiday parties, and you’ve made a recipe for your skin that looks and feels “under the weather”.

It takes effort to keep your skin healthy on a regular basis, and the holiday season only complicates that, so here at Werschler Aesthetics we’ve come up with some holiday tips to put the cheer back in your cheeks – it doesn’t take a miracle, but people will think your skin looks like one.

Take Preventative Measures

You know the holiday season will be tough on your skin, so start now by adding a cream with more moisturizers in them.  You can try creams that are oil based, which should protect you from the back and forth exchange of hot and cold when running around this winter.  New to the market, iS Clinical’s Youth Intensive Crème, is an extraordinarily rich and luxurious anti-aging formula that helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as it provides powerful hydration. This transformative crème scientifically combines the purest and most effective botanically-derived moisturizers, antioxidants, resurfacing acids, and growth factors, making your skin simply amazing. Even a quick laser treatment from your local dermatologist(hint, hint…) can clean up and firm up your skin as a preventative measure against the season.  Try a Clear & Brilliant laser treatment, which has minimal downtime but provides big results in treating fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.

Less Stress Equals More Cheer

Holidays can mean stress, we know it isn’t helpful, but its hard to avoid right?  An excess amount of stress can change your hormonal balance which can lead to breakouts – A bright red bump on a nose might be a good look for Rudolf, but not for the rest of us, so make sure that you’re getting plenty of rest, and taking time for yourself or enjoying a favorite egg nog or butter rum cocktail, which leads to the next tip… Epicuren’s Acidophilus Probiotic Facial Cream is now formulated with silver to increase it’s effect on acne causing bacteria.  Also, Skin Medica’s Retinol helps your skin build new collagen, while providing exfoliation that helps decrease unwanted breakouts.  Spokane Dermatology has also been working with a compounding pharmacy and has a new line of novel prescription acne treatments that are extremely helpful if breakouts become worse.

Next Day Recovering Treatments

All that extra alcohol, combined with rich foods and late nights can give you a puffy, bloated look the next day – Alcohol expands your blood vessels, which allows fluids to build up in tissues, so make sure that you drink plenty of water, and give your face a quick wash when you get home, it will remove your makeup and increases water circulation in the skin. And if you have time, exfoliate in the morning with a gentle scrub, such as Epicuren’s Apricot Scrub or iS Clinical’s Tri-Active Exfoliant to open your pores and clear away dead cells.  Here at Weschler Aesthetics we have a wide variety of cleansers and moisturizers will help clean and rehydrate your skin.

Make Your Skin Glow

If you are interested in having a real glow throughout the holiday season, try a series of microdermabrasion treatments with Werschler Aesthetic’s new Bio-Brasion wet/dry microdermabrasion treatment with an ultrasonic pore cleansing.  Also, try a microneedling treatment with your own growth factors with a PRP facial can really change the look, texture, and feel of your skin.  There is a reason the movie star set is addicted to this treatment.  The change in your skin will be amazing!
