Anti-aging laser products and spa services seem to be popping up everywhere I look lately, and I confess that I’m absolutely fascinated by it. In the past, I’ve written about how I’ve dabbled in light therapy for skin. Laser is a whole new level though. I’m not certain I’d go that far. I’m just not that obsessed with my wrinkles, fine lines and the rest to want to do much more than great skin care and home treatments as well as the occasional splurge on a facial at a day spa.
Cold, windy, dry weather can make winter skin care for seniors a particular challenge. Since our skin is more sensitive than it was when we were younger, the air conditions both inside and outside can lead to itching and flaking and that can become cracking and bleeding. This opens the door to more problems, including infection. The good news is that it’s all avoidable in most circumstances.
I love holiday skin care. I love it as a gorgeous gift to give people throughout the holidays or under the tree, as well as for myself. I think of them as tasteful hostess gifts and stocking stuffers and a good way to remind myself of self-care during this busy and often stressful season.
