Dos and Don'ts for Flawless Skin Through the Holidays
‘Tis the season for parties, family get-togethers and other events that you’ll want to look your best for. But between holiday shopping and a jam-packed social agenda, who has time to think about their skin? Follow these pointers and you’ll be sitting pretty through New Year’s.
Do start using an anti-aging regimen that delivers results for both the short- and long-term. SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum® combines the benefits of the patented growth factor serum, TNS Recovery Complex®, with potent antioxidants, peptides and other innovative anti-aging ingredients to regenerate your skin.
Do treat yourself to a light in-office treatment such as SkinMedica Illuminize Peel™ a week before an important event. You’ll look refreshed and radiant, with minimal downtime and visible peeling.
Do wear sunscreen. Just because it’s cold out there doesn’t mean your skin is shielded from wrinkle- and cancer-causing UV rays. Try SkinMedica TNS Ultimate Daily Moisturizer™ + SPF 20 for hydration, sun protection and anti-aging benefits in one bottle.
Do contact your skin care professional if you have any questions! If you don't have a skin care professional you can find one in your area using our Find a Medical Practice.
Don’t go to bed without washing your face—even if you’ve had one too many martinis. Be sure to wash away the makeup, dirt and debris that accumulate on your skin over the course of the day, and use your skincare products to maximize your much-needed beauty sleep.
Don't stress! It may be easier said than done, but stress prompts your body to release a hormone called cortisol that can cause breakouts, puffiness and even accelerate cell aging. Stop and take a few deep breaths…
Don't DIY it. An at-home peel or microdermabrasion kit isn’t going to make you look instantly fabulous for tonight or tomorrow’s event and could be damaging to your skin. If you want to give your skin a boost, talk to your skin care professional to see what they recommend and have any procedures performed by a licensed skin care professional.
