How will you ever sprint across your local mall to grab Black Friday deals if your body is not properly hydrated? Or sit through hours of family gossip at the dinner table? Avoid the chance or headaches lack of energy by remembering to squeeze in at least 8 glasses of water a day – or you could even try out IV therapy for your busiest days.

DON’T LET YOUR STRESS SHOW
While the holidays may seem like a holly-jolly time, we all know that they are some of the most stressful months of the year. Stress can lead to acne flare ups, dark circles under your eyes, or even expedite the signs of aging like fine-lines and wrinkles. No one wants to let their skin show their stress especially during the holidays – think about how many pictures you will be in! If you feel the pressures of the holiday season taking a toll on your skin it may be time to take a break and get into a skin care regime that works best for you.
At Allison Wellness we offer multiple skin care outlets for a variety of issues. For those wanting just at home assistance, we have a line of home skin care products that offer medically-based treatments for creating healthy skin that can be later paired with in-office skin peeling treatment and botanical masks.

When it’s all over and the final dinner has been had and present has been opened, give yourself a chance to renew before the new year begins. The holiday season can take a toll on your body and you may never even notice until it’s all over and you finally have a chance to catch your breath. You may realize then that you have a severe lack of energy, you may have trouble sleeping, feel bloated, or even just that you are easily irritated. These are all common results of weeks of stress working at your body’s overall wellness – avoid bringing these symptoms into the new year with a nice detox cleanse.
You can even reset and renew with Allison Wellness, for example. We have a program helps you through all 3 phases of the detoxification process to ensure proper lifestyle enhancement.

Remember when looking up cleanses and detox options that typical cleanses and juice fasts may actually deprive your body of the essential nutrients it needs and also causes unwanted side effects.
