The holidays are here and everyone wants to put their best face forward as they see family and friends. Besides getting older and the cold weather, too much food and alcohol can wreak havoc on the skin. Dr. Rabkin offers these five skincare tips and product recommendations for a glowing complexion.
“A beautiful complexion helps people look younger and feel more confident,” said Dr. Rabkin. Following a good skincare regimen will help people look radiant this holiday season.”
5 Skincare Tips for a Glowing Complexion This Holiday Season
Tip 1 – To look perfect for a party, try an oxygenated facial the week before. This gives the skin a smooth and moisturized appearance, helping with the way make-up looks on.
Tip 2 – A few days before an event, try a mask containing Lactic Acid, which will provide moisture to the skin and brighten your complexion. Dr. Rabkin recommends Environ’s Intensive Revival Masque, which is sold in the dermatologist’s office or medical spa.
Tip 3 – Too many late nights and champagne can take a toll on the eyes, creating a puffy, tired appearance. Drinking plenty of water and getting sufficient sleep is important. Also, applying an eye cream containing caffeine can help shrink blood vessels around the eyes, thus reducing puffiness and dark circles. Dr. Rabkin recommends Darphin Anti-Fatigue Smoothing Eye Gel, which can be found in many department stores.
Tip 4 – Add a serum containing Hyaluronic Acid to your skincare regimen. This substance is one of the most water-loving molecules in nature and acts as super moisturizer when applied to our skin. Dr. Rabkin recommends Ageless Total Pure Hyaluronic Filler, which is sold in local spas.
Tip 5 – Don’t forget the lips. During the winter months our lips get chapped and dry from lack of moisture. Lipstick just does not apply evenly on winter lips unless you take extra care to exfoliate and moisturize. Dr. Rabkin recommends The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ, which can be found in department stores, and Fresh Lip Balm, which can be found at Sephora.
