Ten Holiday Skin Care Tips
when you need to show your best during reunions with friends, ex-officemates
and relatives, suddenly you get a zit or two, thanks to the holiday stress.
Here are some of the best tips to give your complexion a much-needed boost this
holiday season.
Sleep well.

Getting at least 8 hours a day of sleep lowers stress levels. The skin naturally
repairs itself at night so you wake up to fresher, glowing skin in the morning.
If you must join that pajama party, roll on DERMAX Hyalift eye repair duo when
you wake up with puffy eyes.
Apply sunscreen everyday.
Before heading outdoors for a day of gift-hunting, apply
sunscreen on your face, neck and other exposed areas. Choose a broad spectrum
sunscreen that provides protection against skin-damaging UVA/UVB rays such as
DERMAX UV Milk Anti-Aging Sunscreen with SPF 50 PA+++.
Drink plenty of water.
The holiday rush can leave your skin dry and tired-looking.
Make sure you drink plenty of water to replenish lost moisture in your skin.
Take extra sips of water within the day for clearer skin and prevention of fine
lines and wrinkles.

Beat holiday stress by getting enough exercise to maintain a sound mind and
body. Regular exercise also increases blood flow that nourishes skin cells to
give your skin that healthy and vibrant boost.
DERMAX Professional skin care products are
available exclusively in all SkinStation branches.
Have a facial.

Pamper yourself during the stressful holidays by having a facial. It helps you
relax and lets you get your much-needed “me-time”. Check SkinStation’s range of
relaxing signature facials that moisturize, smoothen and brighten skin all
throughout the holiday season.
cleansing might not be enough to rid your skin of dead skin cells that cause
blackheads and blemishes. Prep up your skin for the holidays by having a
Diamond Peel to gently slough off dry skin. No time for one? Use an exfoliant
soap like DERMAX AcneX Soap with time-released salicylic acid through advanced
double encapsulation technology.
Try a lip plumper.
Be kissable under the mistletoe. DERMAX Pink n’ Pout lip plumper helps
you achieve smoother, fuller and more youthful lips. It promises long-term
benefits through a combination of two multi-awarded and patent-pending
innovations that “fatten” lips in just one month. Pucker up this Christmas and
on New Year’s Eve too!
8. Have instant wrinkle therapy. Botox. Dermal fillers. These
breakthrough clinic procedures can soften fine lines and wrinkles in no time at
all. Allow a few days before the reunion events. You can also appear much
younger in just two minutes with DERMAX Retinol C instant effect.
best accessory is your smile. So while going through the holiday rush, don’t
forget to smile as often as you can. It instantly brightens your appearance and
makes everyone you smile at feel good inside.
10. Warts away. Once the hustle and bustle subsides,
plan on having warts removal on your face and body. The last few days of the
holiday season is the best time to have those contagious warts cauterized.
