Ease stress and radiate your best self this holiday season. ‘Tis the season for the hustle and bustle of holiday parties, gifts, baking, and for many people, stress. We want to send a little love out to all patients and friends of our West Des Moines facial plastic surgery practice and medical spa to say we are grateful for you​. Not just now, on the heels of Thanksgiving, but always. Thank you for trusting us with your care, referring your friends, and sharing your stories through reviews​ and testimonials.

5 Holiday Self-Care Tips

We also want to remind you of a few tips for navigating the holidays so that you feel your best, both inside and out:

1. Hydrate—Don’t you get tired of hearing it? Well, it’s really, ​really​ important. Drink plenty of water to help avoid feeling sluggish and becoming dehydrated. Staying hydrated also helps you fend off illness. This holiday season is a great time to stock up on your favorite moisturizer, too. We can’t keep enough Dermal Repair by SkinMedica on our shelves!

2. Cleanse—Use a cleanser matched to your skin type and condition regularly. Ask your aesthetician what will work best for your skin type to avoid drying and irritating your face. Skin health consultations are complimentary.

3. Prime and protect—Use a primer loaded with antioxidants and SPF to help hasten the process of getting ready and out the door. Pro Tip: We are big fans of ZO SkinHealth’s SUNSCREEN + PRIMER SPF 30 ($65).

4. Don’t forget to treat your lips—The effects of travel and changes in weather often show up in the form of chapped, dehydrated lips. Consider Peptide Lip Therapy from PCASkin ($28) or Citrus Lip Balm by Eminence ($24), 2 of our go-to products for healthy, hydrated lips.

5. Breathe—Sounds simple enough, eh? But seriously. Check-in with yourself often, take deep breaths, and open yourself to the joy of the season in simple ways. Be mindful of your thoughts to protect your sanity, and make yourself a priority. Treat yourself to a refreshing and rejuvenating facial or a CoolSculpting treatment at our Des Moines-area practice so that you feel and look your best during your holiday celebrations.
