The holidays are known for their freewheeling ways. Many of us eat whatever we want, stay up light, forego exercising and generally live it up. While it’s quite enjoyable, it can leave us with a food-and-fun hangover that can last for weeks. If you want to cut that time down, try speeding recovery with these steps.
Make Small Changes in Your Diet
After the holidays – when you’re so full of rich sauces and fatty appetizers and decadent desserts that you could pretty much die – is not a good time to make serious resolutions. Don’t quit an entire food group or set massive weight goals. Instead, slowly clean bad foods out of your pantry and fridge and replace them with better ones.
Replace a cup of coffee a day with tea, eat a salad at lunch instead of that grilled sandwich, and swap out dessert for fruit. These steps are minimal, but will help you get comfortable with your body again, and quickly.
Care for Your Body
Especially in winter, it’s crucial to take care of your skin. The lower temperatures bring drier weather both indoors and out, which saps your skin’s natural moisture and can cause flaking, redness, soreness, itchiness or rosacea. Instead of slathering on more and more of that moisturizer that isn’t working, try a product like Skinceuticals that’s made to work with your body’s natural processes.
Sometimes your body needs a little more help. Gentle chemical peels, microdermabrasion, injectibles, hair removal services are just some of the many med spa services you might consider. Feeling as though you look your best is the best way to head into the New Year and rebound from the holidays.
Conventional wisdom holds that we should only pamper ourselves during the holidays, but the truth is, sometimes you need it afterwards even more. The post-holiday blues kick in, the weather can be chilly, and you no longer have daily treats to look forward to.
This is a great time to get that balayage hair treatment you’ve been looking forward to, stock up on a few Bumble and Bumble products to round out your beauty routine, or book a mani-pedi or massage. After spending the last month making sure everyone else feels taken care of and loved, you deserve to show yourself the same courtesy.
