Let's face it. We have a LOT going on at the holidays! Shopping, social events, family time - all on top of our normally busy schedules. We battle stress, fatigue, and what winter in the desert does to our skin. And we all want to look and feel our best, to have that healthy glow about us.
The desert climate already dries our skin out but during the winter it can feel even worse. Plus, we often forget to stay as hydrated as we do in the hot summer months, and neglect our sunscreen. Our skin dehydrates, magnifying our lines and wrinkles. Be sure to stay hydrated and wear your sunscreen. Use a quality skin moisturizing cream, not lotion, to lock in the moisture.
I have a REALLY busy schedule during the holidays, with work during the day that doesn't slow down, and a commitment almost every night. THIS year, I am getting a jumpstart on managing this busy season. I am going to take care of myself, and I'm starting with my skincare. I visited with the staff at Vitality Skin & Body in Scottsdale yesterday to talk about the skin care services that are offered to help me manage my schedule and still look great for all of my commitments, and here's my plan.
1) I'm going to start with a photofacial treatment. I have brown spots on my skin from so many years in the Arizona sun, and I don't want them to show up in all of those holiday photos.
2) Next, there is a wonderful treatment called dermaplaning that resurfaces the skin by the dead skin cells and the "peach fuzz" that traps makeup, dirt, and oil. It helps minimize the fine lines leaves the skin soft and refreshed. It also helps your skin absorb the hydration that is coming next.
3) I'm going to DRENCH my skin with hydration, and there are some really nice holiday facial specials right now. I'm going for the spiced cider facial, you can check out the different facials on the SPECIALS page.
4) And finally, the girls have two shots that I am going to get - a B-12 energy shot, and a Fat Burner shot to keep my metabolism revved so that I don't gain weight on all of those holiday foods. Don't forget that what sets Vitality Skin & Body apart is that they are a medical clinic offering skin care services, which means it is all very high quality and there are lots of skin care options that you might not ordinarily consider.
After my spa day at Vitality Skin and Body, I'm going to have a bubble bath by candlelight, a wonderful glass of wine, and a few select dark chocolates while listening to soft music. Then, I'm going to get EIGHT hours of sleep, wake up, and take charge of my holiday! I wish you joy on your beauty journey, and encourage you to reach out to the staff at Vitality Skin and Body for your complimentary beauty consultation at 480.203.3918.
