Achieve a Picture-Perfect Look: Holiday Skin Prep 101

The holidays are just around the corner, and that means it’s time to start prepping your skin for all those picture-perfect moments! At Beautique Medical Spa, we understand the importance of having glowing, radiant skin during this festive season. With so much on your plate during the holidays – shopping for gifts, attending endless social gatherings, and indulging in one too many cookies – it’s only fair to treat yourself to a little self-care.


Additionally, worrying about the weather change. That’s why we’re here to provide you with some much-needed tips on how you can achieve that flawless complexion before all the holiday festivities begin.


Besides, it’s no secret that this time of year is when everyone wants to get their facials glowin’ and their skin refreshed. Meaning you want to schedule your appointment as soon as possible so you’re not left with those pesky frown lines in your holiday photos. 

Winter-Proof Your Skincare Routine

First and foremost, it’s crucial to establish a skincare routine that works for you. The dropping temperatures and dry air can leave your skin feeling dull, flaky, and dehydrated. This means your skin is losing moisture and steadily weakening your skin barrier. Therefore, it is important to establish a skincare routine that adapts to these changes and keeps your skin nourished throughout the winter months.


Start by cleansing your face twice daily with a gentle cleanser suitable for your skin type. Follow up with a toner to balance your pH levels and remove any residue. Then, nourish and hydrate your skin with a moisturizer rich in antioxidants and vitamins – this one is important.




Because it’s officially winter time and your skin will feel extra dry! You’ll need to cover up when going out and moisturize daily. Making sure your product has vitamin C would be a plus! This will help brighten and diminish any hyperpigmentation spots the summer sun may have caused.


We Recommend:

Dermal Repair Ultra-Nourish

This nourishing cream helps restore skin barrier function, delivering immediate and long-lasting moisturization. The appearance of visible redness and fine lines and wrinkles is improved in as early as 2 weeks. Skin is left smooth, supple, and deeply hydrated.


SkinMedica’s Ultra Sheer Moisturizer is a lightweight non-comedogenic moisturizer that provides facial hydration and improves the overall appearance of the skin.


Clients love this one because it is an oil-free, fragrance-free moisturizer with antioxidants and hyaluronic acid to hydrate oil-prone and sensitive skin types. With the addition of vitamins C and E, aiding in preventing free radical damage.


So if you are looking for a moisturizer that contains vitamin C to help diminish any hyperpigmentation spots, then this one is it for you.

Peel Away Your Skin Troubles: Invest in a Chemical Peel

In addition to maintaining a consistent skincare routine, consider incorporating professional treatments into your holiday prep routine, such as a chemical peel.

A chemical peel such as the VI Peel can work wonders in rejuvenating your skin, leaving you with a youthful and glowing complexion. The process involves applying a specialized solution to the face, which then removes the top layers of dead skin cells, revealing fresh and radiant skin underneath.


One of the main benefits of a chemical peel is its ability to improve skin tone and texture. Whether you’re dealing with acne scars, sun damage, or signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, a chemical peel can help address these concerns. In short, a peel can remove the outermost layer of damaged skin cells, and stimulate cell turnover and collagen production, resulting in smoother and more even-toned skin.

Botox Your Way to Perfection!

Botox, Jeuveau, or Daxxify – we got you covered. Neurotoxins are all like a magic wand for your face – they can smooth out those fine lines and wrinkles faster than Santa slides down a chimney. Which is why this is a must for your holiday skin prep!


But before you come and see us, there are a few things you should know about getting Botox prep for the holidays. 


  • Timing is key.

Plan and schedule your appointment at least one week before any major festivities. This will give you enough time for any redness or swelling to subside, leaving you looking refreshed without any signs of recent injections.


  • Don’t forget about the importance of skincare leading up to your tox appointment.

Make sure to keep your skin well-moisturized and use SPF religiously, because nothing ruins a good holiday photo like sun damage does. 


  • Remember, toxins are not a one-time solution.

Lastly, while Botox may be an instant fix for those pesky lines and wrinkles, it’s not a one-time solution. Maintenance treatments are needed every 3-4 months and can help ensure that your holiday skin stays just as flawless as that gingerbread house you spent hours decorating.

The Long-Term Holiday Skin Prep

When it comes to prepping your skin for a holiday, chemical peels and Botox injections are popular choices. However, it is crucial to consider solutions that offer lasting results beyond just a temporary fix. Microneedling and/or PRP emerge as an effective option in this regard. Unlike its counterparts, microneedling focuses on stimulating collagen production in the skin, leading to gradual improvements over time instead of providing immediate but short-lived results.


Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a client favorite here at Beautique because of its ability to address a variety of skin concerns. 


Microneedling can Help Improve:

Fine lines and wrinkles

Uneven texture or tone

Acne scars

Surgical scars

Enlarged pores

Stretch marks


By creating tiny micro-injuries on the surface of the skin with fine needles, this procedure triggers the body’s natural healing response, resulting in smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.


Another advantage of microneedling is its compatibility with your other skincare products. It enhances their absorption into deeper layers of the skin, allowing active ingredients like retinol and hyaluronic acid to work more effectively. Microneedling not only provides long-lasting advantages, but it also enhances the effectiveness of your current skincare regimen, bringing you double the joy!


Overall, while chemical peels and Botox injections can certainly provide instant gratification for preparing your skin before a holiday event or special occasion; considering a more long-term approach like microneedling can yield remarkable results that will keep you smiling beyond just one season!

PRO TIP: Lastly, if you’re thinking of trying a microneedling treatment it is important to schedule 2-3 weeks before your event. This will give your skin time to heal and notice visible results. Schedule here with our esthetician to find out if microneedling or PRP is right for you.
