Holiday Skin Must-Haves

The holiday season is fast approaching.  And while we enjoy the camaraderie, giving, receiving and joy, we tend to focus on the never ending to-do list - the cooking, baking, preparing and getting everything just right--only to step back from the mirror to gaze upon the look of neglect.  Staring back at us is a tired, wrinkled, puffy-eyed face that is supposed to be in a holiday dress smiling like June cleaver by the end of the week.  Add traveling halfway across the county by car or plane, and the damage to fix increases tenfold. 


There are scientific explanations for why our skin goes berserk at times. A large cause is the stress hormone cortisol, which is responsible for blood pressure regulation, immune function and inflammatory response. During times of chronic stress, like the holidays, cortisol can reach prolonged high levels, causing impaired cognitive function, elevated blood pressure, blood sugar imbalances and breakouts. Add cold weather and dry indoor heating, and a plan for healthy skin becomes imperative.
Fortunately, Suede Salon Spa and Body carries CosMedix to make it easy for you to face the holiday hustle and bustle with a radiant glow. The CosMedix Correct Kit is an easy, four-step skin correction routine that’s appropriate for everyone. Approved by the FAA, this travel-sized kit contains everything you need to cleanse, protect, hydrate and correct your skin on the go.
Starting with Benefit Clean, a chemical-free, shea butter-rich cleanser formulated for all skin types, the Correct Kit removes dirt, impurities and even stubborn waterproof makeup to cleanse and prime skin for correction. To undo environmental damage and protect the skin, Affirm antioxidant serum then infuses it with over ten active antioxidants.Hydrate+, a chemical-free, hydrating sun protector, soothes and protects the skin from the elements. Lastly, Define refinishing treatment helps to combat the multitude of concerns—from fine lines, discoloration and uneven texture to breakouts, dehydration and loss of elasticity.
While the Correct Kit will help you achieve a flawless complexion, there are a few must-haves to include in your holiday/winter regimen. Opti Crystal not only combats signs of aging around the delicate eye area, it also hydrates, smoothes, sets concealer and reflects light away from fine lines, puffiness and dark circles. Used on the lips, Opti Crystal is a nourishing treatment that also helps prevent vertical lines and rehydrates even the driest chapped lips.
If you need a bit of extra winter hydration, send Rescue balm to the, well, rescue. This soothing at-home treatment mask not only rehydrates lackluster skin, but also infuses it with antioxidants to save it from the damage of too much travel, lack of sleep and stress. An immediate pick-me-up, Rescue balm is perfect anytime your complexion needs a little help. It’s also great for dry hands, feet, elbows and knees.
Lastly, when all else fails—when you’ve waited too long, traveled too far and stressed too much—head to your nearest Suede Salon Spa and Body for a quick, no-downtime Today’s Peel. Designed to immediately revive, exfoliate, soften and correct multiple concerns, chirally correct CosMedix treatments like Blueberry SmoothiePomegranate PeelBenefit Peel and Purity Peel will get your skin in shape without the wait. So, with the holidays approaching, the to-do list a mile long, and too little time to spare, reach for the Correct Kit and rest assured that help is on the way.  Call today for your Free Skin Consultation 856-985-0700.
