With all of the activities — and food — between Thanksgiving and Christmas, you can sometimes start to feel as round as Santa Claus himself by the time the New Year comes around. We’re all for indulging in boozy eggnog and second servings of your favorite holiday dessert, but we also recognize the havoc it can wreak on your skin.
If you’re worried about keeping your skin looking young and radiant this holiday season — you have family photos coming up, after all — then follow these four tips for skin that shines as bright as your Christmas tree does. Make sure to check out our light-therapy device to help your skin throughout the holidays, the winter and the whole year!
Limit Your Sugar Intake
We know — we just said we like second helpings of our favorite desserts. However, sugar has aging effects on your skin and holiday sugar could damage your skin this winter. This isn’t to say you can’t enjoy your favorite drinks and treats; simply do so with moderation instead. For every dessert you have, eat a serving of fruits or vegetables. Don’t eat sweet treats just because they’re tasty — stick with your favorites and really enjoy them.
Stick To A Skin Care Routine
Don’t let all of the holiday festivities from washing your face every morning and night. Find your routine — and stick to it! A light-therapy device can help you do this, and it will improve your skin care routine while you’re at it! With just eight minutes every other day, it will be easy to commit to this anti-aging skin treatment. Red and infrared LED light therapy is a proven scientific way to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, enlarged pores and more. Check out LED light therapy before and after photos and see for yourself.
Limit Your Alcohol Intake
Alcohol severely dehydrates you, which leads to dull, dry skin. Unfortunately, it doesn’t stop there though. You can experience fine lines, sagging, discoloration and even enlarged pores from consuming alcohol. Limit your alcohol intake in the same way we suggested you limit your sugar intake: sticking with your favorites and having healthy alternatives on hand. LED light skin care can help with all the side effects of drinking alcohol.
Get Enough Sleep
During the holidays, it can be hard to keep on track with your normal sleep routine. After all, kids and grandkids are in from out of town and there are plenty of holiday parties to attend. However, your body produces more cortisol when you don’t get enough sleep — and cortisol can break down your skin’s collagen. As you know, collagen is responsible for keeping your skin tight and firm. Stick to a bedtime as much as you can and get as much sleep as your body needs each night.
