It’s easy to overindulge and run yourself ragged during the holiday season. From trying to get everything done at work before you take time off to holiday parties to shopping for just the right gifts to creating new holiday traditions with your children, you have a lot of demands on your time. With all the extra stuff going on, it’s easy to forget about taking care of yourself and your skin.
We’ve all been there. It’s for that reason we’ve put together some tips to help you stay on track with your skincare routine and keep your skin radiant and glowing. Let’s get started.
Tip #1: Hydrate Inside and Out
Cooler temperatures mean the heat is on at home and blowing on your face in the car. That means dry skin is a risk. While it’s always important to stay hydrated, it’s even more important this time of year. Drink plenty of water and moisturize with a moisturizer specifically designed for your skin type.
Tip #2: Limit Your Intake of Sugar and Alcohol
We’re not saying don’t enjoy yourself at holiday parties. Just keep in mind that you want to eat plenty of healthy options as well. Lots of sugar can trigger acne breakouts, and alcohol can cause facial flushing – neither of which are flattering in holiday photos. Consider a wine spritzer with sparkling water and a splash of red wine your go-to holiday beverage.

Tip #3: Minimize Stress and Get Plenty of Rest
Yes, this is easier said than done during the busy holiday season. Learn to say “no” and reduce your stress at work and at home. You don’t have to accept every invitation or bake something for every kid’s event. Practice self-care and meditate, do yoga, or some other relaxing thing each day. Try to maintain good sleep hygiene. Stress and lack of sleep make you look tired, drawn, and can cause wrinkles.
Tip #4: Remove Your Makeup Before Bed
No matter how late that holiday party went or how tired you are after a late night of gift wrapping, make time to remove your makeup before you go to bed. Leaving makeup on overnight can lead to clogged pores and breakouts. Our favorite make-up remover is our very own A@CH Pre-Cleansing Drops! Removes make-up and dirt without stripping the skin!
Tip #5: Book a Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
Last but not least, book a professional skin rejuvenation treatment. From facials to dermaplaning to laser treatments, our aestheticians can tailor a treatment to your skin type and condition, to help your inner light shine. Professional treatments yield real results.
