Skin Care

By Candice Sabatini


Welcome to the December Dilemma. You know, the time of year when you want your skin to look its best for all those holiday fetes….yet….said fetes are what’s making your skin look its worst. I called upon a couple of my elves….ok, doctors, better than elves…to share a few tips that will help us wassail though the season looking and feeling our best!‘ alt=’amorepacific.jpg’ />

Holiday cheer often means too much drinking and too little sleeping which can lead to under eye puffiness and dark circles. Dr. Shirley recommends damp green tea bags or cool cucumber slices as eye compresses before going out and recommends using an eye cream that contains ginseng. AmorePacific Time Response Eye Renewal Crème contains ginseng, green tea and caffeine to reduce puffiness, and amethyst powder to add radiance.

Dr. Gervais Frechette, Physician reminds us that good skin comes from the inside as well. He warns that consuming excess sugar aids in speeding collagen loss and thinning skin. Yikes! Help combat this by resisting too many sweets and taking multivitamins with antioxidants. Instead of sugary candy canes, suck on lozenges with antioxidants and vitamins A, C and E from your local health food store. Dr. Frechette also recommends protein shakes for added vitamins and good health. Fill up on one of those before hitting a holiday party and you might be less tempted by the hors d’ouevres Legacy for Life i26 Complete will shake up your energy and support a balanced immune system. A healthy way to indulge in your passion for chocolate!
