The holiday season is fun, but the cold, dry air combined with the late-night holiday parties takes a toll on your skin. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, you want to look your best whether you’re out with a new love, an old love, or your friends.
Love is in the air, so why not give your skin a little? With these at-home and spa-grade skin care treatments, you can get soft, glowing, fresh-looking skin just in time for the 14th.
By the time February rolls around, a majority of people don’t feel like they’re any closer to achieving their New Year’s Resolution to lose weight/build muscle. But don’t throw in the towel just yet! As a personal trainer with The Resurge Clinic, I’ve helped dozens of people just like you get into shape just in time for summer beach parties.
All you have to do is follow these four simple tips.
The Best At-Home Skin Care Tips
Drink Plenty Of Water
Simple, right? You would think so, but most people struggle to get enough water on a daily basis, leaving their skin looking tired and dull.
When drinking water, aim for roughly half your body weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 140 pounds, try to get 70 ounces of water daily. Remember to drink slowly throughout the day, and plain water provides the most hydration benefits.
When you haven’t been hydrating properly, and then start drinking a lot of water, your body naturally begins purging all the toxins it’s been storing. You may feel waterlogged at first, but eventually, your body will adjust. The end result will leave you with more energy and a clearer, brighter complexion
Use A Face Mask Once A Week
Using a face make each week can keep your skin hydrated, healthy, and soft. There is a wide variety of face masks available in almost every beauty supply store and spa. Some masks are designed to target aging, while others help with oiliness, acne, or dry skin.
Charcoal masks are excellent for restoring your skin’s pH, which can prevent acne breakouts and brighten your complexion. Other good masks to try include ingredients like avocado, oatmeal, coffee, and aloe vera.
If you want the same benefits of a store-bought mask for a fraction of the cost, try making one at home. A great facial treatment to combat hyperpigmentation (dark spots) is a turmeric and honey mask.
Simply combine one-half teaspoon of turmeric with one to two tablespoons of honey, spread over your face, let sit for ten minutes, and then wash off. This also lessens inflammation, which can help with under-the-eye bags.
Use High-Quality Daily Skin Care Products
It’s not enough to use a moisturizer you picked up at the drugstore—ingredients matter. If you really want to improve the quality of your skin, make sure your daily skincare regime includes quality products.
We recommend ZO Skin Health due to the strict standards and the effectiveness of the ingredients. To see incredible improvement, consider trying the Anti-Aging Program.
Exfoliate Every Other Day
A simple exfoliation routine between now and Valentine’s Day will make a noticeable difference in your skin. St. Ives, Zo Skin Health, Neutrogena, and other brands have a variety of exfoliating facial washes you can try. If you are prone to skin flaking, however, consider using a homemade exfoliating mix that won’t dry out your skin.
A wonderful recipe you can make at home involves combining equal parts ground coffee, brown sugar, and coconut oil with a teaspoon of vanilla extract. This mix can be used on your face as well as the rest of your body. You can make a small amount when you need to exfoliate or make a lot and keep it in a jar in your bathroom. Just remember the mix does not contain preservatives and will spoil eventually, so use it within a week or two.
The Best Spa Skin Care Treatments
If you want more intense exfoliation, try a HydraFacial. This process removes dead skin cells while simultaneously cleaning your pores, making it like all that holiday indulgence never happened!
The process involves intense exfoliation and mild resurfacing, along with powerful but painless suction. This allows the system to remove all the dirt and oil collected in your pores. The best part? It only takes thirty minutes and there is no downtime.
No matter how youthful your face looks, how much water you drink, or how much you exfoliate—if you have loose skin, you can look older than you really are. Fortunately, sagging skin on the face and neck isn’t something you have to live with. With ThermiTight, you can get tighter, younger-looking skin without surgery.
During a ThermiTight procedure, your esthetician or doctor will use radio-frequency energy to tighten, firm, and smooth skin in a targeted area. Your skin will continue to tighten after the treatment, as the energy stimulation causes collagen production to increase.
Don’t worry, there’s no actual bloodsucking involved. This is a facial you will want to do immediately, as it can take a few weeks to see real results.
Less aggressive than lasers, a Vampire Facial involves using microneedling and PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to stimulate new collagen production and break up scar tissue, making your skin tight and youthful. The treatment increases in benefit the more you have it done.
If you’re looking for a quick and easy pick me up for your face, neurotoxins like BOTOX and Jeuveau (The modern newtox) are the way to go. A short visit to the office and a couple of injections will smooth your crow’s feet, relax your frown lines, and smooth those little lines around your mouth.
