Whether at a party, on vacation or out in the winter cold, following a few simple steps can help maintain healthy skin throughout the holiday season, according to the experts at Smoothmed, a New York-based walk-in botox boutique. To follow is a list of Smoothmed's do's and don'ts to help keep skin merry and bright throughout the holiday season.

  • Apply an extra dose of moisturizer prior to a party to help keep skin hydrated.
  • Increase acne regimen in days leading up to the party.
  • Avoid salty foods for at least two to three days prior to a party to prevent puffy eyes.
  • Increase your water intake to keep yourself hydrated and counter the effects of alcohol and chocolate.
  • Don't get an injectable treatment such as Botox on the day of a party. Make sure to plan a treatment two weeks in advance to allow the treatment two to five days to work and to avoid bruising.
  • Don't get a facial peel on the day of a party. This should be done one week before an event to avoid redness and irritation.
  • Test sun block on your skin before purchasing it to make sure it doesn't irritate your skin.
  • If you have sensitive skin, bring your own pillow case on a trip, as your skin may react negatively to the hotel's laundry detergent.
  • If you're going to be skiing, consider a heavy greasy moisturizer to protect your skin from the cold wind.
  • Don't put bug repellent directly on your skin. Instead, spray your hat and collar.
  • Pack all of your skin and acne products when going on a trip, as the change in environment and diet can induce acne.
About Smoothmed
Smoothmed is a new retail concept in cosmetic medicine that is making Botox an attainable luxury experience. The brainchild of renowned plastic surgeons Dr. Andrew Elkwood and Dr. Michael Rose, Smoothmed was launched in June 2007 and represents the first walk-in (no appointment necessary) Botox-only boutique. Located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Smoothmed was created to offer an environment where all Botox treatments are administered in a safe, professional and ethical manner, while keeping a patient's visit brief at 30 minutes or less. All treatments are administered by physicians that specialize in Botox facial sculpture and have been trained in the Smoothmed method.
