We tend to be so busy running around during the holidays that we forget to take care of ourselves. We run from store to store, bustle around the kitchen to cook and bake holiday treats and try to cram a five days’ worth of work in one day’s time. It can all get overwhelming, which is when we start to skip certain self-care measures. One particular luxury that we tend to skip is facials. Not only will this make you look tired, but it will make you feel tired as well. Here are three reasons why you can’t afford to skip your routine facial.

Winter Leaves Skin Dry

While Miami might still have a high degree of humidity (your frizzy hair can attest to that), the winter air is considerably drier than it is in the summer. This sucks the moisture from your skin, leaving your face itchy, dry, and flaky.

Daily moisturizing is key to maintaining healthy skin throughout winter, and a facial can help your skin keep its radiant glow. We can help remove unsightly dead skin cells and rejuvenate healthy ones. This will keep your skin comfortable and prevent any embarrassment caused by dry skin flakes.

Holiday Treats Can Cause Acne Flare-Ups

Occasional treats won’t completely ruin your skin, which is why you might not think twice about grabbing a birthday cupcake from the breakroom. However, the holiday season means there are sugary treats everywhere. People set them out at work, make them at home, and share them as gifts. Without realizing it, your sugar intake could skyrocket this month, and your skin will suffer.

Fortunately, our facial treatments can help with your acne and give your skin the healthy boost it needs so you can keep chomping on holiday treats.

Stress Causes Wrinkles

While the holidays are a magical time for many people, they’re not without stress. There are a million things to remember, errands to run, and events to plan. All of this stress can tax the skin and expedite the process of wrinkle formation. Without realizing it, you might look more like Mrs. Claus than you planned once January comes around.

Make sure you set aside time for a facial to hydrate the skin and keep it healthy during the holidays, so you will look as young as you feel on Christmas morning.

You don’t want to give up your favorite annual traditions, make an appointment today for a facial to ensure you make the most of the holiday season.
