The holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year. Everybody knows it can be the most wonderful time of the year, but for many, it can be the most stressful too! We can experience stress for a variety of reasons. Stress can directly impact the muscles, nervous system, and importantly the skin. In addition to stress, another thing that causes changes to our skin is the weather.
Throughout the winter months, our skin can take quite a beating! The cold temperatures, low moisture, and frigid winds of Upstate New York combine to create a harsh winter environment for our skin to endure. But, we can always do our best to stay protected! One additional benefit of wearing face masks designed to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is that those masks provide some additional warmth and protection in winter. However, at the same time it causes further drying of our skin, which needs help during these frosty winter days.
We have a number of ways you can protect and rejuvenate your skin to help you boldly and confidently face our northeast winters. Aesthetic treatments help keep our skin clean, moisturized, healthy, and strong. Whether it’s a chemical peel, Dysport, Botox, Fillers or our signature HydraFacial, your skin will be on its way to a stress-free glow. In these stressful times, consider treating yourself to a revolutionary gold mask, diamond-head microdermabrasion treatment, or lip plumping perk. After this holiday season, you’ve earned it!
After a stressful 2020, many of us have come to realize the importance of focusing on our personal well-being and self-care. It can be easy to neglect our bodies and our skin when there is much to stress about, but taking the time for your personal health can be empowering and enlightening. Our aesthetician, Alyson, uses the latest technology combined with professionalism that will provide you with a relaxing experience that will leave your skin feeling invigorated! This is exactly what your skin has been begging for: to reduce stress and strengthen your skin’s protection from the harness of winter. We know you stress all year, but you know the best kind of gift to yourself is a healthy self.
It’s the holidays! Give yourself the gift you deserve: healthy and glowing skin!
