If you’re feeling more stressed than blessed this holiday season, the Beauty Team at CNY Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery wants you to know that it’s going to be OK!
The holidays are a busy time, and there’s lots of pressure on us all to shop, decorate, cook, bake, clean, wrap…the list is endless! In other words, you are not alone! To help you stay calm and as cool as a cucumber during this hectic time, here’s a list of our favorite mood boosters, endorsed by experts, of course.
Inject more merry into your holidays by:
Obviously, this is a tip from the CNY Beauty Team, not psychologists, but you should never underestimate the power of a good moisturizer! Especially during the dry winter months when the harsh cold and indoor heat combine to make the perfect recipe for flaky, irritated skin. As a SkinCeuticals® flagship store, we carry the complete line of medical-grade SkinCeuticals formulas, including moisturizers for every skin type and concern imaginable. Got acne? We have a moisturizer for that! Oily skin? We have a non-greasy, mattifying formula for that too. Regardless of your skin type, we can help you achieve radiant, younger-looking skin with results-driven products that work double duty to improve your appearance while stimulating cellular renewal over the long term.
Starting the day off with a win!
We know it sounds crazy, but did you know that the simple and rather mundane (okay, tedious) task of making your bed is clinically proven to boost your self-esteem and even your productivity for the day? Psychologists have studied the benefits of bed-making (you really can’t make this stuff up) and discovered that by making your bed in the morning, you are starting your day with an accomplishment, however small. This accomplishment has a cascade effect, improving your self-image and fostering productivity throughout your day.
Remembering to breathe
When you start to feel overwhelmed by your mounting to-do list, it’s time to take a moment to pause and hit the reset button, so to speak. When you pause, take a moment to focus on a big breath, exhaling slowly as you imagine letting go and releasing your stress. Pausing to breathe is a mini break you can take for yourself any time of day. Experts suggest pausing regularly to help you reduce stress and refocus.
Another happiness tip the CNY Beauty Team swears by: Laser hair removal!
There’s nothing more satisfying than feeling liberated from the hassles of tedious grooming rituals like shaving. A series of laser hair removal treatments, performed during the winter when you aren’t likely to be wearing a bikini, is one of the smartest and most proactive self-care gifts you can give yourself, so schedule yours today!
