Holiday Beauty: Show Off Your Best Skin This Season
One of the best things about the holidays is that it’s packed with parties and get-togethers—plenty of opportunities to get dressed up and show off your best self. However, it’s also one of the busiest times of the year, which means you don’t have a lot of time to waste on skin woes. To show off your best skin this season, here are our top tips to get glowing fast, and the aesthetic treatments that can get you ready for all of your special occasions.
To level up your skin care over the holidays, consider incorporating one or more of these ideas—or all of them if you really want to supercharge your routine.
An antioxidant wunderkind, Vitamin C is known to fix common complexion concerns such as uneven skin tone, rough texture, fine lines, acne scars, and general dullness. Available in serums, creams, masks, and more, adding a hit of vitamin C to your skin care will give you a smooth, bright, radiant complexion in time for New Year’s.
Retinol an anti-aging favorite, retinol helps with cell turnover, stimulates collagen, and accelerates cell renewal, restoring your youthful glow. Winter is the best time to add retinol to your routine if you haven’t already, because it can make your skin more sensitive to the sun—not a big deal when you remember to wear sunscreen every day.
This method of facial massage using a smooth stone tool is a go-to for depuffing and invigorating your face. The practice supports lymphatic draining and improves circulation for a smoother, sleeker look in no time. Put your gua sha tools in the fridge or freezer beforehand for extra depuffing power.
If you feel like your face looks puffy over the holidays, it helps to drink plenty of water, exercise, and get more rest. If that’s not quick enough, you can speed up the process with a lymphatic massage, facial massage, topical creams that contain caffeine, or with an ice bath (submerge your face in ice-cold water for twenty seconds, then repeat three-to-five times).
Antioxidants are a kind of Jack-of-all-trades in skin care because they help prevent and reverse so many aesthetic concerns and help protect against free radical damage. Add a serum that contains antioxidants to your skin care this season to help brighten, hydrate, and improve your complexion.
Here are the best facial treatments to get you looking your best in time for the big holiday party, or just to give yourself some extra self-care over the break:
Collagen and elastin are two essential building blocks for having firm, youthful skin. Venus Legacy™ and Venus Versa™ use radio frequency energy to effectively boost collagen and elastin production as both a restorative and preventative measure against the signs of aging. Non-surgical wrinkle reduction treatments and skin tightening treatments address fine lines and deep wrinkles, at the same time improving skin laxity, sagging, and loss of elasticity. Both of these comfortable, no-downtime treatments visibly restore tighter, smoother, and younger-looking skin.
Skin resurfacing is one of the most sought-after treatments for improving the overall look and feel of the skin and resolving issues such as scars, wrinkles, enlarged pores, or stretch marks. Skin resurfacing treatments with Venus Viva™ MD stimulate scar healing by delivering radiofrequency energy via tiny pins that allow the RF energy to reach below the skin’s surface layers. The treatments accelerate the skin’s natural healing process and promote collagen and elastin production to correct scar tissue, improve textural irregularities of the skin, and restore a brighter, smoother complexion.
For sun damage, dark spots, and other signs of photoaging caused by exposure to free radicals, Venus Versa™ photofacial treatments use Intense Pulsed Light technology to rejuvenate skin from underneath the surface. By reinvigorating the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin, photofacials clear up sun damage, slow down the appearance of aging, and restore skin to a brighter, healthier, more radiant appearance.
To refresh the skin and support the skin barrier, Venus Glow™ facial renewal treatments flush out pores and pull dirt, excess oil, and impurities from below the skin’s surface for a deep clean that reveals a radiant, refreshed complexion. The micro-massaging tip then stimulates nutrients to spread through the derma layer and restore nourishment to help keep the skin hydrated and protected. The treatments can also be enhanced with Venus Glow Serums™, such as Glow Astra or Glow Sana, which are formulated with antioxidants to repair dullness, dryness, and other signs of aging, as well as protect against further free radical damage.
Tribella™ treatments combine three powerful anti-aging therapies into one. First, a photofacial improves skin tone by fading age spots, and reducing sun damage. Then, the anti-aging treatment firms skin, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Lastly, the skin resurfacing treatment smoothes uneven skin texture, improving the appearance of scars, rosacea, enlarged pores, and more. If you’ve never tried a medical aesthetic treatment before, this is a great entry point into the world of highly effective treatments with visible results and no downtime.
