3 Ways to Get Glowing Skin in Time for Your Christmas Photos

Christmas is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect time to start thinking about your festive photos. For a lot of people, having their photograph taken immediately fills them with dread and a desire to hide. If you are unhappy with how you look or your skin’s appearance, you are likely to be hesitant about having your photo taken. This is understandable, especially if you are slowly starting to notice the signs of ageing creeping in.

Luckily, there are a number of fantastic treatments available to ensure that your skin looks its best in time for your annual family photo or the snaps from your work’s festive social. Instead of worrying about having your photo taken (and even secretly hoping the event is cancelled), you can relax and look forward to it, knowing that your skin is looking more youthful and fresher than ever before.

How to Get Great Skin in Time for Christmas Photos

There are a number of ways to improve the appearance of your skin in time for Christmas, but the below options certainly stand out as three of the most effective. Here’s everything you need to know about microneedling, chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing. 


There are a lot of cosmetic treatments out there, but some are more popular than others. One of the most common cosmetic treatments to improve the appearance of the skin is microneedling. It’s ideal for anyone who feels as though their skin is beginning to look dull, lifeless and less youthful than before. It’s also an effective way to target sagging skin, wrinkles and pigmentation. This makes it a fantastic treatment option before your festive photos, as microneedling leaves you looking fresh and renewed.

Using a number of small needles, microneedling punctures the skin and causes controlled damage to the target area. This encourages the skin to produce more collagen, creating a plumper and more youthful appearance. As the skin repairs itself, it produces new cells and collagen, making skin appear fresher and rejuvenated after treatment.

Chemical Peel

When it comes to having your photo taken over the holidays, you will want your skin to look as healthy and fresh as possible. This is where a chemical peel comes in; as one of the most popular cosmetic treatments, chemical peels are designed to give your skin a new lease of life. Chemical peels can reduce the signs of sun damage, poor texture, uneven skin tone, pigmentation, general damage, rosacea and acne.

A chemical peel works by applying a specialised solution to your skin, which removes dead skin cells and encourages the growth of new cells. By replacing dead skin cells with new skin cells, your skin looks younger and renewed.

There are many different chemical peel treatments available, which means that you won’t struggle to find the ideal one for you and your skin. Whether your skin has signs of ageing or sun damage, texture or acne, a chemical peel can make a big difference. All chemical peel treatments are aimed at improving the overall appearance of your skin, and all of them will leave your skin looking rejuvenated and renewed.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

There are a number of benefits of having laser skin resurfacing, which is why it’s a common cosmetic treatment for people who want to look their best in their upcoming Christmas photos. Instead of worrying about your skin looking dull and lifeless, you can relax, knowing that your skin will look fresh and youthful. Laser skin resurfacing can combat the signs of sun damage, scarring, poor texture, loose skin, acne and ageing.

Laser skin resurfacing works by removing the outer layer of facial skin, which then encourages new skin to grow. It works similarly to chemical peels, but instead of using a specialist chemical solution, laser technology is used. There are two types of laser skin resurfacing to choose from; traditional skin resurfacing and fractional laser resurfacing. Whilst the former targets the entire surface of the skin, the latter focuses on specific areas of the skin. At Cambridge Laser Clinic, we focus our attention on fractional laser resurfacing, as this leaves some skin around the targeted area free from injuries. This encourages quicker healing.

Why Christmas is the Best Time for a Cosmetic Treatment

A lot of people choose to undergo cosmetic treatments in the lead-up to Christmas, and there is a good reason for this. Christmas is a busy time; there are lots of plans with friends and family, work parties, celebrations and socialising. Simply, it’s the time of year when you are likely to see a lot of people. You will want to look your best, showing off your gorgeous skin and flaunting your youthful appearance. Plus, Christmas is usually documented with photographs and videos, and nobody enjoys looking at themselves and being disappointed by what they see. Instead, you should look at your photos and feel an immediate confidence boost.

Though there is no right or wrong time to have cosmetic treatment, choosing the lead-up to Christmas means looking your best for one of the most important times of the year. For many people, it’s when they will get the most ‘bang for their buck’ in terms of investing in a procedure. At Christmas, there is no shortage of people to show off your rejuvenated skin to.
