The holiday season is a hectic and busy time of year. From planning parties to attending big events, we are all under a lot of stress. All that stress can take a serious toll on your skin’s health. To make matters worse, the holidays fall during the winter when skin is already susceptible to dryness and dullness.

The good news is that with the proper care and steps, you can tackle party planning and important holiday events with glowing, youthful skin. As you enter this busy season, we have a few tips and tricks on how you can keep your youthful glow, even with all that added stress.


Tip #1: Make Wellness A Priority

Let’s face it. When it comes to planning for holiday events, it is easy to lose focus on our own well-being. Healthy habits can start to slip as we run errands, make lists, schedule caterers, and tackle the neverending pile of details involved in any big event.

The problem is that when we lose sight of our own wellness, it takes a serious toll on our skin and body. No one wants to plan the perfect event, only to be battling dry, dull skin on the day of the party. Make sure that during the holiday season, you prioritize your own well-being. This means sticking to healthy eating habits and drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Staying properly hydrated and eating a nutrient dense diet will keep your skin in top shape for holiday photos!


Tip #2: Dedicate Time To Focused Relaxation

When we are stressed out, we can wind up damaging our skin and putting on weight. Stress can show on your face, causing premature wrinkles and aging. The best thing you can do during the hectic holiday season is to schedule dedicated time for relaxation every day. Perhaps this will mean prioritizing time for a facial or pedicure. Maybe take some time for meditation. Whatever it is that allows you to unwind and put the stress of gift shopping, social engagements, and cookie baking behind you, be sure you dedicate time to some “me time.”


Tip #3: Schedule A Clinical Facial Or Peel Ahead

Picture perfect skin is best planned ahead. Spend some time with your day planner and mark down all the major holiday events you have coming up. Look for time slots leading up to those events where you can schedule in a clinical facial or peel. You want to ensure you visit the spa a few days prior to any big event to allow your skin ample time to rejuvenate.

One of our favorite facials at Senara Health and Healing Center & Spa is the HydraFacial, which is a powerful combination of both a chemical peel and a micro-resurfacing treatment. This facial leaves your skin soft and glowing while reducing those stress-induced wrinkles and fine lines. It helps to remove dead skin cells, ridding you of winter dullness while repairing and rejuvenating your skin. One of the best parts is that there is no downtime with a HydraFacial. You will be ready for your holiday party without missing a beat.

Bonus Tip: If you have a busy holiday season ahead with many important events on the calendar, talk to our team about the best time to fit a facial in. We will be happy to help you determine the perfect timeline for your specific scheduling needs.
