How to Get Glowing Skin for the Holidays


How to Get Glowing Skin for the Holidays

The holiday season is officially in full swing, which means you’ll be attending plenty of parties and gatherings in full-glam! We understand the importance of feeling confident in your own skin, especially when stress from the holiday season and winter’s harsh temperatures begin to take their toll.

So, how can you achieve that ultimate holiday glow?

The secret to achieving that coveted radiant complexion lies not just in makeup, but in a dedicated skincare routine that targets your skin’s unique needs. With so many products and treatments available, it can be hard to know where to start.

That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help you find the best treatments for glowing skin. Get ready to shine at every event this holiday season!

Winterize Your Skincare Routine

The first step in achieving glowing skin is building and following a consistent skincare routine that suits your skin type—and the season. We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but your summer skincare routine probably isn’t well-suited for winter.

While the skincare products you’re using may need some adjustment, the basics of an ideal skincare routine remain the same: cleansing, toning, exfoliating, hydrating, and applying sunscreen every day. Additionally, your routine should include a treatment serum that targets your specific skin concerns for improved skin health.

We recommend using medical-grade skincare products that are backed by research and board-certified dermatologists. These products contain higher concentrations of active ingredients and exclusive complexes that are not found in drugstore products. They also have superior delivery systems that enable the ingredients to reach the deeper layers of the skin. Because of their exceptional formulations, these products offer better results and generally more value than drugstore products.

These are some of the best products for glowing skin this holiday season:

Treat Yourself to a HydraFacial

Facials are professional treatments that cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and nourish the skin. Regular facials can address various skin issues such as congestion, dullness, or sensitivity. But which facial is best for glowing skin, you ask?

Generally speaking, the best facials for glowing skin are those that offer advanced technology and a customized approach suited to your individual needs and goals. And there is one that is a great fit for almost everyone: the HydraFacial.

This revolutionary treatment uses vortex fusion technology to vacuum out pores and remove dead skin cells all while infusing your skin with hydration, peptides, and antioxidants. This fabulous three-step treatment will leave you looking refreshed and hydrated with an instant glow!

A HydraFacial treatment lasts a mere 30 minutes, and even patients who bundle treatments can expect to be in and out of the clinic within an hour. It is the perfect holiday skin treatment because there is absolutely no downtime, discomfort, peeling, or irritation. Some people may experience mild redness immediately after the treatment, but this usually subsides within a few hours.

Experience a Red Carpet Chemical Peel

One of the best treatments for glowing skin is a chemical peel. More powerful than traditional facial treatments, chemical peels can help improve the texture, tone, and clarity of your skin.

If you’re considering chemical peels for glowing skin that turns heads and steals the show, then we recommend the Red Carpet Peel. This professional skincare procedure contains 30% lactic acid, which promotes gentle exfoliation and hydration. Derived from milk, lactic acid works to remove the topmost layers of damaged and dead skin cells, revealing fresh, new skin that is softer, smoother, and brighter.

As an added benefit, the treatment boosts cellular turnover so that you will continue to see results for months to come. Because the Red Carpet Peel only targets the very outer layers of skin, there is no recovery time and you won’t have to worry about redness or peeling.

Tighten and Slim Facial Skin with Morpheus8®

If you are bothered by fullness under your chin and feel that slimming would benefit your appearance, Morpheus8® is an option to consider for sagging skin. This treatment is one of today’s most advanced face-slimming methods and is a non-surgical solution to reduce submental fullness—“double chin”—and define the jawline.

Morpheus8® combines the power of microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen production and remodel the underlying structure of the skin. The process involves ultrafine needles that penetrate the skin, delivering RF energy to the deeper layers. This dual-action mechanism triggers the body’s natural healing response, promoting the production of new collagen and elastin fibers.

Whether used for skin rejuvenation, tightening, or face-slimming, expect your skin to be a bit red and/or swollen for a few days after Morpheus8®. You will need to avoid makeup for a couple of days and may experience a bit of flaking for 3-7 days post-treatment. Therefore, if you want your skin to look its best for the holidays, it would be ideal to have the treatment done early in the month. Initial results from Morpheus8® can be seen within a few weeks, with more dramatic improvements in skin texture and firmness noted about three months after the treatment.
