The holidays can be a stressful time of year. Many people get sidetracked with finding the right gifts to send to loved ones or ensuring that the house is perfectly decorated, and forget to take care of themselves.
However, taking care of yourself is essential to making it through the holiday season. By treating yourself to some self-care, you’ll feel great and look incredible. While you might be celebrating the festivities over Zoom this year, and perhaps the dinner table isn’t quite as full as it was last December, you still want to look and feel your best. Without taking care of yourself, not only will you feel stressed out and exhausted, your skin will also start to appear dull and tired.
To help you keep that natural glow, we’ve compiled a list of crucial self-care tips to carry you through the next few weeks.
Drinking water is one of the essential things you can do for your body and has incredible skin benefits. Skin is the largest organ in the body, and it’s made almost entirely of water. Without a healthy dose of H20 (health experts recommend eight glasses a day), your skin won’t function properly. It will become dry, flakey, and dull. Water also maintains digestion, circulation, the transportation of nutrients, and many other crucial bodily functions. So, before you pour another eggnog, remember to drink a glass of water first.
For a quick beauty pick-me-up that can last for several months, consider Botox treatments from a cosmetic and laser clinic. Botox is the only approved cosmetic procedure to remove fine lines and wrinkles from the face temporarily. It’s also one of the most common, as millions of people worldwide have made the simple procedure a part of their regular beauty and skincare routines.
Abolishing wrinkles such as crow’s feet and frown lines from the face make you feel younger and vibrant. The actual injections only take about ten minutes, and you’ll start to notice a significant difference within 24 to 48 hours. With Botox, you’ll feel self-confident and ready to tackle those Zoom gatherings with a bright, wrinkle-free smile.
Calming DIY Facial Masks
Are the holidays a stress trigger for you? If you’re like so many others, you might experience breakouts or redness when you’re feeling overwhelmed or run-down. Do It Yourself (DIY) facial masks will calm down that irritated skin and force you to sit back and relax for a few minutes.
You’ll need the following ingredients:
- One teaspoon of organic honey
- One teaspoon of plain Greek yogurt
- A half of an avocado
- A few drops of chamomile oil
Mix everything with a spoon, and then rub the mixture all over your face. Let it dry for about 30 minutes while you soak in a hot bath or listen to a guided meditation. Wash it all off with lukewarm water and finish with your favourite moisturizer. Giving yourself that half an hour will do wonders for your skin and mood.
The holidays might feel a little unusual this year, which is all the more reason to treat yourself. Look incredible and feel great this festive season just by following these three tips.
