The holiday season is wonderful for so many reasons…time with family and friends, reflection on the past year, and of course all the delicious food you could dream of!
Sadly our skin doesn’t take as kindly to holiday treats and traditions as well as we do which means after all those mistletoe kisses, your skin needs some extra TLC.
Here are some of the easiest ways to revive your skin after the holidays so you can glow all the way into the new year!
Get Back To Healthy Eating Habits
We know green juices and smoothies don’t taste as great as your grandma’s Christmas cookies, but we promise they will help reverse the damage of the excessive sugar, carbs, and fat you consumed over the holidays.
By cutting down on sugar and consuming lots of fish, veggies, and fruits, you’ll be sure that your skin will appear less dull and your overall complexion will brighten. It will also keep breakouts at bay and help your skin get back to naturally hydrating itself after all those tasty treats and bad habits have dried it out.
Use Antioxidant Skin Products
Antioxidants in skin care are the holy grail. For decades, dermatologists have experts have preached the powerful effects of antioxidant ingredients like Vitamin E, Grape Seed Oil, and Green Tea.

Give Yourself A Quick Face Massage
When your body is sore and tired, nothing helps it feel better than a great back massage at the spa. Well, it turns out the same is true for your face! Giving yourself a quick 10-minute face massage will not only feel great, its got lots of scientific benefits too!
Massage has been proven to stimulate the lymphatic system, increase circulation, relieve inflamed skin and helps diminish wrinkles. For an added benefit, apply a peptide-rich cream like our Repair & Release cream before your face massage to add some extra anti-wrinkle power and make your face massage feel even better!
Using a cream will also help decrease the risk of tugging at your skin causing damage. Make sure to rub gently and in an upward motion including your jawlines, cheeks, and forehead.
