Holiday Proofing Your Skin

Published by Marketing Team

The holidays are around the corner, and we at CCSD want to make sure your skin stays clear and glowing. To help prevent breakouts and blotchiness, follow these 5 simple rules:

  1. Drink plenty of water – multiple holiday parties means late nights and cocktails. Both can wreak havoc on your skin. Make sure you drink plenty of water throughout the day and the evening. 80-90 ounces a day are recommended
  2. Sleep – no one should fault you for leaving the party a wee bit early to get some good zzzzz’s. Especially if you have multiple late nights out in a row. Sleep allows your body to detoxify itself, and repair damaged skin cells. So get 8 hours if you can.
  3. Exercise – you don’t want holiday food to pack on the pounds, but you also need stress relief during the holiday season. Stress leads to increases in oil production and acne. Stress also causes a breakdown in collagen, leading to fine lines and wrinkles.
  4. Wash your face before you go to bed – don’t leave party makeup on overnight where it can mesh with oils and plug up pores. Keep your skin crystal clear by using the Clarisonic Pro brush to wash each night.
  5. Avoid excess sugars – they increase oil production on the skin, which leads to unsightly acne bumps. Sugars also may lead to early cell death and destruction of collagen, leading to wrinkling skin.

Follow these simple rules, and enjoy your holidays with great skin!

Booking Now For Medical Weight Loss!

If losing weight is part of your New Year goals, CCSD is now offering a medical weight loss program! Semaglutide is FDA-approved to help with chronic weight management and stimulate weight loss. We offer semaglutide with Vitamin B-12 to help reduce appetite, slow gastric emptying, and promote better eating habits. The addition of Vitamin B-12 helps ease side effects such as nausea and fatigue. Studies show that patients see a significant weight loss when using semaglutide with B-12.  The CCSD Medical Weight Loss Program includes:   3 months of weekly visits and semaglutide treatments with our Physician Assistants.  With weight loss alone, one loses muscle mass loss which can decrease metabolism. To combat this, we offer a package of 4 EMSCULPT NEO treatments which further help with weight loss and maintain core strength.  Weight Loss Program patients can also receive discounts on skin toning and smoothing treatments such as EMTONE and EXION, to help keep you looking your best throughout your journey!  Weight loss progress will be recorded and monitored by an intuitive 3D body composition device, which accurately measures body fat, muscle volume, lean mass, bone mass and so much more!  We’re excited to offer this new program to our patients! Call us at 312-245-9965 ext. 5004 for more information and to start your weight loss journey today!
