The awards season is in full effect! Our medical skin spa in Santa Monica is extremely busy this time of year as everyone wants to stand out on the red carpet. It takes some time and effort to get your skin glowing and looking tight—sometimes it can even take weeks. Whether you’re attending the upcoming Grammys or Oscars, parties before and after, or have your own special event in the works, we’ve got some tips to help you look your red carpet best.

1. Book a Series of Facials

A flawless complexion can be your best accessory for special events. One of the most important things you can do is book a series of facials before your event. Our medical skin spa is the best place in Santa Monica to get facials because our expert aestheticians customize each service to our clients’ exact needs. We take the time to determine exactly what your skin needs to look fresh and youthful. Whether your skin is in need of deep exfoliation or a series of hydrating facials, we’ll tailor a program just for you.

2. Exercise

It doesn’t matter how much time you have before your next event—get into the gym, start running or hit your favorite exercise class now. Even if you only have a day, exercise boosts circulation and gives you a healthy glow. If you’re lucky enough to have two weeks before your special event, you can actually see some change within that time period. An added bonus is the stress reduction you’ll experience from regular workouts.

3. Injectables

A very quick and popular way to freshen up your looks is with injectables. Whether you need to restore volume or plump up fine lines and wrinkles, we have the solution for you. At the best medical skin spa in Santa Monica, we offer the gamut of dermal fillers, from Botox and Juvederm to Radiesse, Restylane, Voluma and more.

4. Get Adequate Sleep

Get at least seven to eight hours of sleep every night. This will help eliminate dark circles, give your skin time to rejuvenate and allow your body to reap the benefits of exercise.

5. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Hydration is key in the days leading up to your event. Eat potassium-rich foods to combat bloating and drink lots of water, lemon water and tea. Avoid sodas and foods with excess sodium at all costs.
