Thanksgiving is such a wonderful time to take stock of our blessings. Our fast pace and hectic lifestyles take charge for most of the year, and the holiday season often exacerbates our stresses. This year, why not grab the bull by the horns (or the turkey by the wings, as it were)? This year, make and start your new year’s resolutions now. That way, by the time the new year starts, you have your new habits well in hand.
Here are some of our suggestions:
Find an esthetician you love, and visit her at least 4 times this year. As you get your yearly budget in order, set aside some of your pennies and your time to get your skin professionally cared for. Even the simple goal of getting a facial treatment at each change of season will do wonders to perk up your skin, and keep you on track for continued healthy skin.
Stay out of the sun! We could repeat this every day, and still not say it enough. Whether you love the outdoors or just love lounging by the pool, we beg of you, protect your skin from the sun. Not only will it keep your skin from prematurely aging, but it will protect you from skin cancer.
Cut back on the sugar. Sure, healthy eating is the hallmark of many a resolution. But there’s a reason for that! Hidden sugar is sabotaging us even in foods that appear to be healthy. (Choosing the yogurt and granola parfait for breakfast? Check the sugar content- many have 21 grams and above!) You already know that sugar is bad for your waistline, but it is also bad for your skin (and not it the way you may think).
Hydrate! We’re busy people. We live in the desert. We are all dehydrated! Skip the fancy vitamin waters (watch out for added sugar!), wean yourself off the diet cokes, and simply drink more water and green tea. Easy breezy way to improve your health and your skin.
Enjoy the holiday season!
