A Merry Mango Holiday

What does your face want for Christmas?  Well, we asked your face and this is what it told us:

  • Lots of fresh water to counteract the artificial heat.
  • Moderate eating and drinking.
  • A gentle cleansing scrub.
  • A high-powered moisturizer with peptides.

We heard what your face was saying and we’d like to make some recommendations based on that wish list.  First, there is nothing more important than drinking plenty of water.  It is easy in the hustle and bustle of the holidays to find yourself skipping your normal healthy routine.  But holidays can be stressful and some of the parts of your routine can help you handle stress.  Drinking water is one of them.  Water helps your body process out impurities and bad food choices so make a mental note or set your smartphone to remind you to have a big glass of water at least twice a day.

Moderate eating and drinking seems impossible during the holidays but sometimes you can make healthful choices especially if you are the hostess or are asked to bring a dish to someone’s home.  How about a delightful Mango Trifle instead of a heavy fruitcake?  Whip a little pure light whipping cream with a little bit of yogurt and layer with fresh mango slices.  Garnish with a sprinkle of eggnog, some sliced almonds, or some cranberries and you have something absolutely beautiful and beautifully healthy!  Don’t worry that people will object to eating something that is good for them.  Many people will thank you.

The next request:  a gentle cleansing scrub, is an easy one.  We have several depending on your skin type and you can decide what your best option is.  But do take the time to do a little cleansing and exfoliating.  During the winter there are many environmental elements that your skin has to face that are different from the rest of the year.  Extremes of heat and cold, wind, and wood smoke are only a sampling of the factors your skin encounters.  Gently exfoliating opens those pores up, removes the grime and grit and dead skin.  Then beautiful fresh skin emerges and you look radiant!  Our best cleansers and scrubs.

Finally, just what Dr. Oz ordered, a good peptide-based moisturizer.  We have just the thing for your thirsty facial skin.  Our Peptide 6 wrinkle-fighting cream restores and helps your skin replenish the natural collagen that makes skin so smooth and wrinkle-free.

We hope this helps you decide what to buy your beautiful skin this Holiday Season.  Please don’t ask us what to get your nephew, Bobby!
