There is nothing worse than your pale, winter skin offsetting your favorite holiday dress, which is why it is important to work a spray tan (or two) into your beauty prep schedule. Although you may not have factored a spray tan into your holiday to-do list yet, add it to the list and check it twice. It all too common to tan frequently in the summer months and then stop by Thanksgiving. Why give up on the glow of a gorgeous tan when you don’t have to? Don’t get us wrong, there is nothing wrong with being pale and proud, in fact, we do not suggest being sprayed as often or as dark as you would during the summer, but we are believers in the positive effects of maintaining a tan in cold-weather. Not only can a spray tan help you feel prettier (and often times, skinnier), you don’t need to wear as much makeup when you are tan. Simply throw on some mascara and head out the door. Not to mention that you won’t feel the need to cover up! To some, a tan in the winter may not be the most natural looking, but it is a way to get yourself through these cold winter days.

Champagne toasts, late nights with the family and your mom’s mashed potatoes! We can’t get enough of the holiday season! Although you (and your stomach) may be yearning for some holiday fun, your skin is not. Fight the post-Thanksgiving breakout by reading up on some tips to help your skin through this delicious and joyous holiday.
November and December are the busiest travel months of the year, as people are making their journeys home to the family. Whether you are flying, driving or taking the train home this year, keep in mind that traveling often causes your skin to lose its moisture. The mix of recycled air, the stress that comes with traveling and the lack of sleep can leave your skin looking dull and dry. The key is to stay hydrated with the help of a heavy moisturizer and by drinking water.
Fatty and sugary foods almost always increase the chance of a breakout. If you are prone to acne, avoid greasy foods this holiday season and add foods that contain healthy oil such as nuts, salmon, and eggs. The healthy oil will keep your skin from breaking out and drying out.
The combination of increased stress and alcohol consumption can negatively affect your skin. That being said, don’t let your mom’s comment about your pumpkin recipe get under your skin. The clarity of our skin is often contingent on our emotional stability.
Lack of Sleep & Alcohol Intake
Getting enough sleep, especially while you are on vacation is imperative to keeping your skin looking fabulous. Without sleep, our skin cells have a harder time generating!
Let’s face it, alcohol is just apart of the holiday season. However, it would be a good idea to think twice before finishing off the second bottle of champagne. Alcohol dehydrates the body like none other so, alternate your cocktail with a little water here and there.
