new year, new you! [or not, the old you is pretty good too.]

With 2017 coming to a close, now is the time to reflect on the past year - the good, the not so good and everything in between - and remember to be grateful we're here for another go-round at this thing called life.

New year’s resolutions not your thing? No biggie. We are all guilty of teasing our friends and families of failed resolutions year after year. But why? We are all just trying to figure out how to be our best selves. Whether your goal for the new year is to travel more, make big moves in your career, lose a little extra around the middle or love a little harder – you do you. The point of all of this is that we made it. We made it through another jam-packed holiday season. Cheers to us! 

Speaking on behalf of all the ladies at Hollyday, we know how to indulge around the holidays. The generous clients we love so much fill our breakroom with chocolates and fudge and giant tins of Topsy’s popcorn, oh my! Not to mention all the cocktail parties and holiday gatherings throughout the past month – champagne coma anyone?? As a team, we’re using the first couple weeks of 2018 as our chance to DETOX. We are ready to move forward with a fresh beginning, and our skin is going to thank us for it.

Watch our 14-day detox journey from January 2-15, via Facebook and Instagram, to see the highs and lows of cutting out sugar, processed foods and alcohol from our diets. We are aiming to drink 100-150 oz. of water per day and eating lean protein, lots of fresh veggies and nutrient-rich snacks to keep us energized throughout our day. We have to do this is a team, because who are we without moral support and accountability from the people we spend 30-40 hours a week with??

Detox, Reset, Balance and Energize.

Your skin is the largest organ in the body and is a significant indicator of what is going on internally. While your skin loves the pampering you give it externally, it will visibly reward you when you take care of your body on the inside. 

Breakouts? Puffy eyes? Dark circles? Dryness? Redness? These are the most common complaints we get when it comes to skin – and guess what? The time and money you’re investing in your face with treatments, procedures and products to keep these issues at bay can be made much worse with over-indulging. Dehydration; processed foods; too much sugar, dairy and alcohol are all major culprits. On the flip side, some fresh fruits and veggies are packed full of wrinkle-fighting antioxidants -- one of our favorites is pumpkin, aka nature's natural collagen!
