Non-invasive Ways to Improve Your Appearance by the Holidays

The holidays are upon us, which means a chance for new beginnings and fresh starts. It also means closing out 2018 on a high note. You can visit our state-of-the-art plastic surgery and cosmetic skin care center in Dallas, TX for professional revitalization before the end of the year. Then again, there are several things you can do at home to improve your appearance this holiday season.

Dr. Mark A. Deuber and his team would like to share a few tips for enhancing your appearance and fighting signs of aging before the new year. This advice can make a major difference in how you look and feel.

Moisturize Deeply

The drier air during wintertime can do a number on your skin. That’s why it’s so important to use heavy duty moisturizers during the colder, low-humidity months.

Find a body lotion that’s a little heavier than usual but still delicate on your skin. In terms of facial moisturizers, you may want to consider heavy creams, overnight moisturizing products, and oil-based moisturizing products.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Your skin needs hydration inside and out. Be sure to drink lots of water during the winter months to make sure your body is getting the moisture it needs.

Also, consider investing in a humidifier if your home is dry during the wintertime. This can make a major difference in your appearance and general comfort this holiday season.

Exfoliate Your Skin

Moisturizing, hydrating, and humidifying are helpful, but don’t forget to exfoliate. Removing the dead, dry skin cells on your face will help reveal softer, smoother skin and give you an added glow. Use gentle exfoliating products to ensure you’re getting the benefits of exfoliation without harming your skin in the process.

Don’t Skip Out on Exercise

You may be busy getting work done and running errands before holiday travel plans. You’re certainly keeping occupied, but it’s not the same as staying active through exercise. Be sure to make time for exercise each day. This will help you look and feel great, and will help you burn some of those extra calories from Thanksgiving.

Moderation and Portion Control

On the note of Thanksgiving, you may have lots of leftovers to finish, but that’s not a good excuse to overeat. Practice portion control during the winter months to avoid packing on the pounds. Remember to focus on eating healthy whole foods, and to avoid snacking on sugary holiday treats.

Step Up Your Makeup Game

During the holidays, you can change your makeup routine to help brighten and lighten up your features. Remember to even out your skin tone with foundation, and to use concealer on dark splotches and blemishes. You can bring out a warm, summery glow in your facial features even in these winter months.

Visit Your Hair Stylist

The winter may be time to liven up your hair. Getting highlights or changing your hairstyle can make a major difference as the year comes to a close. Speak with your stylist about what you can do to rejuvenate your look.

Make Time to Relax

We know that the holidays are an extremely stressful time for a lot of reasons. Even though you’re trying to get everything done before the end of the year, be sure to make time for relaxation. Meditation, yoga, or even just sitting quietly in the moment each day can help improve your sense of well-being.
