There are many preparations that can be made to get your skin photo ready for those holiday photo shoots. Many would agree that getting plenty of rest is very important. Ideally, one should aim to get at least eight hours of sleep a night especially the night before you know that you are taking pictures. In addition, there a few other things that you can do the night before to make your skin look its best. These include putting frozen spoons on your eyes for about fifteen minutes, taking off all of your make-up to make sure that your skin is nice and clean, and drinking plenty of water. The water keeps your skin hydrated and fresh looking. In addition, the water also aids with your concentration level and alertness.
Keeping your skin moisturized will also help you achieve ready skin for photos. It is suggested that you start using moisturizer a week before the date that photos are set for. It can be applied to the arms, face, hands, and anywhere else that may find itself in a future picture right after you get out of the shower and dry off. If you are prone to dry skin a sugar cube can be used to scrub off flaky skin and then wash with soap afterwards. Also, make sure that your moisturizer is not oily if your skin is prone to break-outs.
The HALO laser is a great option for those of you with nominal to severe skin concerns. This novel treatment system can aid with minimizing the effects from sun damage, scarring, and aging. This hybrid fractional laser allows patients to customize their skin needs and the recovery time is very marginal. It also has a 90% approval rating due to the glowing results and ease of treatment.
Self-tanning products can also be used, but it is suggested that they are applied sparingly and well in advance of picture time to prevent unwanted streaking or discoloration of certain areas. In conclusion, we all look forward to receiving holiday photos from friends and family and of course we want to look our best in our own photos. So, if you follow the suggestions above your skin will be as radiant as ever and make you smile when you look at your own pictures.
