'Tis the Season: Put Your Best Face Forward!

'Tis the Season: Put Your Best Face Forward!

Ahhh the holidays ... that magical time of the year filled with gift-shopping galore, heart-warming reunions and, of course, non-stop feasting! However, once that initial cloud of excitement dissapates, our minds go straight into panic mode: "Did I miss anyone on my list?", "How am I going to pay for all these gifts?", "Is the house clean enough for guests?", "Where is everyone going to sleep in the house?", "Eat in or out? Homemade or cater?" EeeeK! Okay, stop whatever you're doing or thinking and take in a deep breath; first thing's first ... relax. Focus on you! And what better way than to re-create your own spa experience. Better yet — no need to spend big money at the spa to get a facial. Just use your FemmeScience products to give yourself one at home!

1. Find a place you won't be interrupted. If you want to immerse yourself in the experience, you need to ensure there are no distractions.

2. Play some music you really like.

3. Wet face and hands. Massage with 2-3 pumps of FemmeScience Hydrating Face Cleanser with fingertips over moist skin for two minutes. Rinse well.

4. Gently spread a generous amount of FemmeScience Green Tea Face Mask to cover your face and neck area. Leave on for 5-10 minutes or until try. Rinse thoroughly with cool water.

5. Massage a small amount of FemmeScience Under Eye Renewal into area above and below eyelids.

6. Use a small amount of FemmeScience Age Control Formula on your face to improve the appearance of fine lines.

7. Apply small amount of FemmeScience Anti Aging Night Cream to rest of face.

Kiss that "Lose Weight" Resolution Good-bye!

Now that your mind is at ease, let's calm those grumbling tummies and eat! Or not?! Or maybe just one bite?? Like we've never heard that one before! You know how it goes ... first a bite, then a nibble ... next thing you know you've gobble-gobbled your way from hors d'ouerves to desserts, pork loin to pecan pie — and not once did you mix in anything green! Oh the shame! The guilt! All those after-work nights slaving away on that elliptical with the ear-piercing squeaks — wasted! Here at FemmeScience, we feel your pain! That's why we searched high and low, far and wide, and spent countless hours compiling, calculating, computing to create the perfect solution ... [clouds part, angels sing, golden rays of light appear] ... introducing our seven-step program to prevent unnecessary holiday-induced augmentation!

The holiday season is a time for friends, family and festivities. It's also a time for delicious yet not-so-healthy foods! We women tend to pack on the pounds during the holidays. With the average American consuming a day's worth of calories in one holiday meal, each celebratory dinner can wreak havoc on your waistline. Fear not: The following holiday tweaks will help you indulge without leaving you stuffed like a turkey — pun totally intended!

1. Have breakfast the morning of the festivities. If you're thinking about skipping breakfast to make room for that big holiday dinner, think again. By eating a morning meal, you're kick-starting your metabolism for the day and increasing your calorie burn.

2. Control your portions. Eat with your stomach, not your eyes. As good as the holiday spread looks, don't start piling a mountain of food onto your plate. Take a little bit of everything, finish that food and get some more if you're hungry. With that said ...

3. Pace yourself. It takes time for your body to signal that it's full, so although you might still be hungry after that helping of turkey, buttery biscuits and marshmallow-covered yams, wait a few minutes. Your stomach is about the size of two closed fists, so it's likely that the first helping of food was enough to fill you up. Your body just doesn't know it yet.

4. Load up on veggies. Vegetables like pumpkin, green beans, sweet potatoes and carrots are loaded with antioxidants that are not only good for your skin, but also for your overall health. Stock up on these during dinner and avoid the glazes, gravy and toppings that might accompany them — you don't need the extra carbs. Not a fan of vegetables?

5. Lay off the alcohol. Alcohol lowers your inhibitions and stimulates your appetite, which increases your chances of reaching for that extra slice of pie. Alcohol also dehydrates you, so you're likely to wake up with dry mouth and under eye circles — not to mention other hangover symptoms. If you do decide to indulge, make sure to drink water in between drinks to stay hydrated.

6. Eat your meats without the skin. Turkey, for example, is packed with protein as well as conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), an omega-6 fatty acid that supports increases in muscle mass and decrease body fat, giving you that nice, slender look. By getting rid of the skin, you'll be cutting down on not only calories but also fat and cholesterol.

7. Focus more on the people, not the food. Food is only one part of the holiday. Don't forget the fact you're surrounded by great family and friends (unless you hate your in-laws — it's ok we won't tell!). Engage in conversation and share some laughs. Before you know it, you'll be too distracted to want that second helping of dessert.
