Combating Skin Damage After the Holidays

Did you know your skin is your largest organ? Aside from making us look presentable, it acts as a waterproof, insulating shield that guards our bodies. But our skin takes major hits throughout winter, especially during the holidays. Late nights out don’t mix well with the overindulgence of food, alcohol, and travel. But there are ways to combat these elements to ensure your inner glow is reflected outwardly.
