5 tips for de-stressing this festive season

5 tips for de-stressing this festive silly season


1: Sleep well with a luxurious Holistic Silk Sleep Mask.  

Now this might sound a bit like a no-brainer, but a good night's sleep is vital for healthy, glowing skin. It’s when the body produces the most growth hormone, which aids in cell and tissue repair. While you sleep, your body also makes new collagen, the protein that keeps skin strong and elastic. This is a tricky one around this time of year, but if you try to avoid consuming heavy rich foods 2 hours before bed, unwind with a relaxing bath and wear a Holistic Silk sleep mask it goes a long way to aiding a good night’s sleep. Holistic provide a range of masks from Lavender scented masks for a deep restorative beauty sleep to anti-ageing masks to prevent facial creases and retain skin hydration. I'm slightly addicted to the Lavender one... 


2: Repair and re-energise the Skin with a Yon-Ka Serum. I love Yon-ka, it offers a range of serums that repair and lift the skin. There's a lot of buzz around serums but the basics are that they are highly concentrated in botanical extracts, and are a great way to feed the skin with rich ingredients, especially when the skin is stressed or fatigued. The Yon-Ka Serum Vital specifically fights dryness and dehydration, smooths wrinkles and fine lines and restores a visibly younger appearance to the epidermis... perfect for this time of year for sure! There's also Yon-Ka Galbol which promotes tighter and smoother skin.


3: Lift the eyes with at home and in clinic Eye Rescue Treatments. If you've really hit the party scene and the evidence is beginning to show, you can improve the appearance of those morning after eye areas by applying specific eye treatments. We recommend the AlumierMD AluminEye cream to improve the appearance of dark circles, fine lines and puffiness in any skin type at home. In clinic, AlumierMD Eye Rescue Pads can be added to any facial treatment to rejuvenate the eye area via their soothing, cooling gel pads. 


4: Pre-event At Home Facial. If you need to get ready for a party night take a peek at our at home facial offer. First up we've included the AlumierMD Lotus Scrub to gently exfoliate, remove dead skin cells and help promote new cell growth. Then apply the AlumierMD Enzymatic Peel to promote skin renewal, minimise the appearance of fine lines, rosacea and hyperpigmentation and promote a radiant complexion. Follow this with the AlumerMD Hydralight Moisturiser to promote skin hydration and finish with the Lisa Franklin Pro Effect Luminescent Base for that perfect pre-event glow. You can snap us our At Home Facial Package right here.


5: Improve the skin from within with Skinade. Skinade is a skincare collagen drink which contains active ingredients to boost your body’s natural production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, effectively nourishing your skin from the inside. It promotes a more youthful, glowing and radiant complexion, as well as strengthening nails and hair.

So that's it - we hope you find these tips helpful in the run up to the big day. Don't forget to follow us on social media @LisaFranklinUK for more day-to-day adventures in clinic.
