From drastic changes in the weather to travel plans, entertaining family and friends, unhealthy foods and restless nights, the holidays can be stressful all around. The festive season can also have a tremendous effect on the skin—and not in a good way. Luckily, there are plenty of things you can do to make sure your skin looks stress-free and beautiful throughout. Give these five tips a try to keep your skin stress free throughout the holidays!

TIP #1: STAY HYDRATED

This might sound basic, but with so many nights out, it’s easy to over indulge with sugary drinks and alcoholic beverages. Alcohol can wreak havoc on the appearance of your skin. Drinking at least 8 glasses a day will help rid the body and skin of toxins. It’s also helpful to top up on water between glasses of wine or cocktails to stay hydrated. Hydrating the skin externally is just as important! For this, we strongly recommend you try Avène Eau Thermale Water, a spray you can apply directly to the skin to keep it fresh and moist throughput the day. Not only is it ideal for skin subject to eczema, psoriasis, ichthyosis, or dermatitis, it also helps reduce inflammation, relieve irritation, and speed healing.

TIP #2: BOOST YOUR SKIN’S RADIANCE WITH B12 INJECTIONS

If you haven’t jumped on the Vitamin B12 bandwagon, it’s time you did! B12 injections have myriad of health benefits that can give you – and your skin – the boost it needs during the holidays. As a nutrient, it helps the body’s nerve and blood cells stay healthy, and prevents megaloblastic anemia (what makes your tired and weak!). Bonus, it also helps to regulate the production of pigment in the skin, which means it can prevent dark spots and pigmentation while promoting the growth of healthy skin cells and repairing damaged skin.

TIP #3: DON’T SKIMP ON YOUR DAILY SKIN CARE ROUTINE

During the holidays, it’s more important than ever that you clean your skin regularly. Being out longer, later, and more often means more pore-clogging factors from stress to debris. Not to mention dark circles. If you’re noticing a tired look that settles in around the eye area, applying SkinBetter Eye Cream daily should help. It comes inside of a beautiful velvet holiday cosmetic bag! We know you’re exhausted, but don’t be tempted to slack off! Be sure to wash your face every morning and night, and use dermatologist approved products. Trust us – you’ll thank us later.

TIP #4: DON’T FORGET THE REST OF YOUR BODY!

When we think of keeping skin stress free throughout the holidays, we mostly think of the skin on our face. But, don’t forget about the rest of you! Dehydration and exhaustion will affect you everywhere, so be sure to take stalk of how the rest of your skin is looking. Moisturizing throughout the day is always recommended, especially in cooler weather and when under stress. Try the Avène body balm, which retails for just $30!

TIP #5: CONSIDER PLUMPING UPWITH LITTLE DOWNTIME

We’ve got another amazing special going on throughout December. When you purchase a site of Botox®, you get $75 off any filler. Botox® injections can be done in as little as 10 minutes, have very little down time, and you’ll see results almost immediately. So, come in and plump up for a fresh look that will last for months!
