A New Year, A Better You: Love Yourself Through Antiaging

Antiaging in the new year.

Love yourself. You're special and beautiful.

Every year we make resolutions to be healthier, exercise more and eat better but these good intentions are often set on the backburner while life is happening. We look in the mirrors and see all our imperfections x100 – we are our own biggest critics. We notice things about ourselves long before anyone else would. So, let’s take advantage of this and make this year a positive one. Let’s practice great self-care, antiaging, looking our best with some tips and tricks and occasionally indulging in a treatment to make us feel as special as we are.

Love Yourself.

This should already be part of everyone’s routine but, if not, here are some simple steps to make you look younger and feel better.

  • Get your sleep. The term ‘beauty sleep’ has truth to it. Studies have found that lack of sleep can age us up to 10 years. Now that’s anti antiaging, yikes!
  • Dry brush your skin. It has many benefits including exfoliation for softer skin, clearing your pores, boosting energy and may even help to reduce cellulite and increase lymphatic support.
  • Nourish your skin from within. Your diet should consist of many colorful fruits/veggies; by this, I mean, eat the rainbow of fruits and veggies. As well, nuts and fish are not only delicious, but they provide an excellent source of healthy fats and vitamins.
  • Take care of your hands. Think about it, our hands face the elements all day, every day, and they show our age as much as our face. Remember to moisturize and wear sunscreen on them.
  • Shape your eyebrows. This can give you an instant facelift! If you’re not too keen on tweezers, opt for a professional to thread your brows as this is more gentle than doing it yourself.
  • Relax. Easier said than done, right? Just remember that it’s 100% needed. Whether you like to read a book, enjoy a bath, or take a walk, find some alone time to relax. This helps us mentally, emotionally and improves our antiaging results.

The above list is simple and inexpensive. Most of these tips can be added to your everyday antiaging routine without adding any extra time. Now, onto the ‘feeling like a queen’ part. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be pampered, look younger and get a boost of confidence. There are many treatments that are relatively inexpensive but have great results. Read on for our top picks.

Antiaging Is In Your Hands… And Feet.

A manicure/pedicure can make your sore hands and feet feel relaxed and oh so smooth. We may only think about mani/pedi’s as picking a fun color of nail polish, but they have health benefits: increased blood circulation, improved nail health, de-stressing and keeping your skin soft. Ensuring our skin is properly moisturized, especially in the winter, is key to avoiding dry, cracked hands and feet.

You Can Never Have Too Many Facials.

How about a facial? There are many to choose from depending on your antiaging goals. For instance, a facial can target acne, wrinkles, dryness, redness, pores or combinations of problems. Facials are customizable, based on skin type, so everyone is able to get one. Not only will you be super relaxed, but your skin will also be glowing in no time.

Safe, Effective And Relatively Cheap.

Feeling like you want to look younger, as soon as possible? Say no more. Botox is a safe antiaging treatment, and it has next to no downtime. The procedure is done by a licensed nurse or dermatologist in their office. Botox can target very specific areas you’re not happy with, such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and wrinkles on your forehead. It can also slim your jawline, and give you the nose you’ve wanted without the huge surgery and black eyes.

It Bloody Works.

If you’re on top of new trends and procedures that are up and coming, try a Vampire Facial. It has been popularized recently by Kim Kardashian via her Snapchat and Twitter images. You might have seen it; it’s the image of her with blood all over her face. Sounds gross, I know, but it’s not. The procedure basically uses your own blood, separates the Platelet-rich plasma and injects it into your face, just like dermal fillers. The entire procedure takes about 40 minutes. If you’re looking to treat yourself and try something new, this is the treatment for you.

This year is all about you, so start it off feeling your best and continue it all year. You won’t regret it. Call Beautique Med Spa to book your appointment today. We have all the tools to make you feel as awesome as you are.
