Get Beautiful Skin This Holiday Season

The holidays are almost here, which means you better be ready for those family get-togethers, office functions, parties and more. Follow the tips below, and you can get younger looking skin just in time for all of the upcoming photo-ops.

1)    Omega-3 Supplements

Omega-3s are found in both fish oil and flaxseed oil, and can keep your cell membranes strong and supple. Simply adding these supplements to your daily routine will help your skin look more radiant throughout the holiday season.

2)    Load up on Antioxidants

Antioxidants are nutrients (minerals and vitamins) and enzymes (proteins inside your body) that help prevent, repair and restore damage to your body’s tissue.  Antioxidants do this by staving off the effect of free radicals – which start oxidation – a process that can lead to skin cell dysfunction. Replenish your body’s supply of antioxidants with dark fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts and whole grains for more vibrant-looking skin.

3)    Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate

Dry, dull skin usually means it’s time for some exfoliation. Exfoliating your skin 2 or 3 times a week will leave your skin looking polished because it increases cell turnover and boosts circulation. It can also make other products (e.g., cleansers and moisturizers) work more effectively.

4)    Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Uneven skin texture and tone, wrinkles and broken blood vessels can make you look older than you feel. Laser skin rejuvenation is a non-surgical treatment that can take years off of your appearance without damaging your skin.

5)    Sunscreen

Okay, so sunscreen can’t actually take years off of your appearance, but it’s vital for protection and prevention. There’s no point in spending money on expensive skin care products, supplements and treatments if you aren’t going to protect your skin from future sun damage. Grab some SPF 15 or 30 and apply it each and every day.
