It’s three days until the big holiday party–not enough time to lose 15 pounds. And you’re too busy decorating, cooking, and buying last minute gifts to give yourself a second thought. Here are three things you can do, in the midst of the frenzy, that just might help you feel amazing on party night.
Whiten Your Teeth
A few days before the big shindig, slap on a white strip while you are wrapping, cooking, or watching a Christmas movie. Nothing makes a woman look more youthful than white teeth. After all those years of coffee, tea, and red wine, of course our teeth will have a little dinge. (Caution: Avoid eating sugar cookies or singing carols while wearing your strips.)
Like a perfect lip color–a whiter smile will brighten your entire face.
Exfoliate Your Skin
Think of your face as an artist’s canvas. No amount of paint can camouflage a rough canvas. It’s the same with your complexion. You’ll never get a healthy, flawless look if you don’t start with smooth skin. The day before your big event, use a mild scrub, alpha hydroxy acid product, or a mask that exfoliates. It will prep your face and give it a silky base for your makeup.
Wear your mask while you’re tying bows or hanging mistletoe. Just don’t forget you have it on when the FedEx man rings your doorbell.
Get Some SPANX
The most valuable item I have in my lingerie drawer is my SPANX. I probably don’t even have to mention this miraculous product. SPANX smooths and tames my unruly bumps and bulges. I can’t explain where the bulges go, but when I put on my SPANX, they magically meld away.
No matter what I wear, I look smoother and feel trimmer, because my Super Higher Power SPANX sucks it all in.
…Because you can’t lose 15 pounds in three days.
So while you’re making your list for everyone else, be sure to include a few gifts for yourself: white strips, exfoliating products, and, of course, SPANX.
