The holidays are always a hectic time, with several parties and family gatherings to attend, which can lead to neglecting your overall health and wellbeing. However, one of the best ways to combat the ravages of a packed holiday schedule, overindulging in heavy foods and more cocktails than usual is to treat yourself to a facial so you can recapture that healthy glow you’ve been missing.
