Beat Post-Holiday Bloat & Bulge With a Few Instant-Results Tricks

Beat Post-Holiday Bloat & Bulge With a Few Instant-Results Tricks
If you’re having trouble sticking to your resolutions because post-holiday bloat has you feeling like effort is futile, you’re not alone. But, while every day is a brand new day to start keeping up with your promises, it’s important to remember to take it easy on yourself, and a little self-care can go a long way. We’ve rounded up our favorite tactics to streamline your journey into a more sculpted you with results in a pinch.

1. Instantly Sculpt

The Ziip Device is like a workout for your face, that you can do in your robe at home and instantly see an improvement in your skin. It’s microcurrent and nanocurrent in one little handy dandy tool, which essentially kicks your cells into high gear by activating them, bringing blood and oxygen to the surface of the skin for added nourishment and better absorption of your favorite products, and sculpting your muscles. Best results are obviously accumulated over time, but if you’re feeling puffy, your first session will leave you noticeably lifted.

2. Reduce Appearance of Cellulite

Speaking of lifted, if elevated cheeks (the other cheeks) are in your 2020 crosshairs, get a jumpstart with Saya’s invigorating coffee scrub to help reduce the appearance of cellulite. Caffeine, even applied topically, is stimulating, and boosts circulation for a resilient bounce to the thick skin at the backs of thighs and rear. Exfoliate and hydrate in one step for a noticeable pep in your step.

3. Contour

If a little holiday weight seems to be clinging to your gorgeous face (not so easily concealed with a sweater until that New Year’s diet has had time for full effect) a little soft contouring never hurt anyone! Ilia’s Multi Stick is a minimalist’s approach to creating subtle shading to the face in one simple, good-for you formula and shade of choice. Dab on the apples of cheeks for a healthy flush, or carve out the hollows of cheekbones and your jawline, and add depth to eyelids and lips.

5. Lymphatic Drainage

And lastly, staving off a cold is on everyone’s radar this time of year, so getting sick will totally get in the way of your new fitness and wellness #goals. Keep yourself super soft hydrated while also supercharging your immune system with a vigorous self massage to promote lymphatic drainage. Shiva Rose’s luscious Celestial Rose Body Butter is the dream cream to lube up the process for luxurious glide. Apply post dry brushing and showering for the best results to move stagnant lymph and keep your bod flowing right and tight.
