Post-Holiday Rejuvenation

Post-Holiday Rejuvenation

It’s the holiday season. You’re likely experiencing a combination of physical, emotional and psychological stress that's slowly aging your skin with inflammation. Take some time to decompress from the season and rejuvenate. If you can't make it to the Clinique, practice your self-care at home with these simple steps to help keep you looking flawless. 

Under-Eye Bags & Dark Circles

Beauty sleep is no joke. Your to-do lists between work and home can keep you tossing and turning at night. Here in South Texas we experience “Cedar Fever”—also known as hay fever that inflames our sinuses and contributes to poor sleep and dark circles. 

AT HOME: Having a nighttime relaxation ritual can help put you in the mood for sleep. Put-away the phone and tablet, and pour yourself a warm mug of chamomile tea to wind-down. In the morning, apply a generous amount of Contour Eye Gel under your eyes and gently massage from the inner-to-outer corner of your eye to help reduce puffiness. 

ULTRASONIC SCULPTING FACIAL is your go-to treatment to reduce puffiness, smooth and contour your look, and quench your skin with antioxidants and peptides that combat the visible signs of aging. 

Dull-Looking Skin 

Cool-weather seasons dry our skin out more. Its is important to amp-up your hydration and moisture levels to combat dehydration and keep your skin dewy soft. Drinking more water doesn’t exactly help your skin, but it definitely won’t hurt. 

AT HOME: In the morning, boost hydration levels with hyaluronic acid then apply your favorite moisturizer. This amazing ingredient holds 1,000 times its weight in water and helps improve barrier functions. Your moisturizer contains humectants and ceramics that help hold-in the hydration for longer-lasting benefits. 

ULTRASONIC HYDRATION INFUSION gives your skin the hydration boost it needs to glow while reducing the look of lines and wrinkles. Pure hyaluronic with encapsulated vitamins disperse into both superficial and deeper layers of skin to improve barrier functions and encourage youthful cells to regenerate. 

Hyaluronic acid and vitamin c - Restnrestore and Opti-Renew C

Acne and Oiliness

Excess stress hormones may cause your skin to produce too much oil—leading to breakouts. Stress also impacts our gut and digestion, and individuals with acne may see dramatic results with nutrition. Reduce dairy, milk, cheese, and simple sugars in your diet and replace them with good fats from fish and nuts, and eat more leafy greens. 

AT HOME: Before switching to an acne/oily skin regimen, address breakouts with a simple spot treatment and amplify your skin’s hydration with Opti-Renew Complex and Rest-N-Restore. 

REJUVENATING GLYCOLIC PEEL gives your skin the jumpstart it needs to clarify and hydrate. This sugar-derived acid dissolves dead skin and penetrates deep into pores to reduce breakouts and prevent recurring breakouts. 

Inflammatory Concerns

When stressed, our body activates cortisol and adrenaline to help get us through the struggle. But too much can trigger dermatitis, eczema or psoriasis on our skin. If the condition is moderate to severe, seek some assistance from your doctor. Otherwise, work on calming and reducing stress, and soothe the skin with a gentle moisturizer or balm.

All-In-All

Self-care is absolutely essential to help prevent premature aging and inflammation in your body and skin. Carve out a little time each day to take care of you.
