Many of us probably started neglecting hair, skin, and nail care ever since the pandemic began. After all, many of us were stuck at home, and there was no need to get pampered or look our best unless we had Zoom meetings. If you find that your self-confidence took a hit during the quarantine, now is an excellent time to start getting back on the saddle in terms of beauty and wellness.
Now that the holidays are coming up and you might see people you haven’t seen in almost two years, now is a good time to look and feel good about yourself. Here are some beauty treatments to help boost your confidence for the upcoming holiday parties.
If you have remaining scars from your previous breakouts or sunspots from when you neglected to put on sunscreen before laying out on the beach, now is a good time to give your skin the chance to be clear and radiant, just as you have always dreamed.
Find a reputable beauty clinic that utilises state-of-the-art laser scar removal machines to ensure that the procedure will be effective. When done right, even the scars that you thought were impossible to get rid of can be cleared up with just a few sessions. The non-invasive procedure can also help refine your skin tone, clear up wrinkles and fine lines, and repair various types of skin lesions.
We live in a time of less is more and simple is best, so if you appear at parties with a no-makeup-makeup look and just your soft, supple, radiant skin, you can indeed walk into any party with your head held high.

The pandemic also gave us so many reasons to just let our body hair be. And that’s alright—body hair is normal and nothing to be ashamed of, and it’s high time society started getting with the program. Hair in different parts of our body serves a purpose—they help keep us warm, protect sensitive parts of our skin from external influences like abrasion, chemical attacks, and even water, and many others.
However, we also can’t deny that there is something about being hair-free and smooth that feels good. If you want to get rid of body hair, that is your right because it’s your body. Just make sure that you’re doing it for yourself and to gain more confidence, not just to meet some arbitrary standard of beauty.
While you can opt to have your body hair waxed or shaved, the frequency with which you would have to go through this process may be tedious. Consider having your body hair permanently removed through laser hair removal. This way, you don’t have to keep going back to the beauty clinic.
Another beauty treatment you can undergo to help instantly boost your confidence for the holidays is a spray tan. Heaven knows it’s hard to get some sun during winter or colder seasons, so a well-done spray tan might be your best bet for feeling like you just flew out from Cabo. Having a sun-kissed glow might be exactly what you need to boost your self-esteem before you meet people. Moreover, having a tan that looks natural and suits your skin tone can help you appear more toned.
However, tanning beds and direct sunlight will expose you to harmful UC rays, so make sure to opt for high-quality self-tanning lotions or sprays instead. You can find plenty of these products in the market. This way, you can try doing it yourself, but you can also enlist the help of a professional at a salon to help make your skin look its best.
The latter might be your best option because when done wrong, spray tans can make one’s skin look orange and unnatural, which can become problematic. So don’t hesitate to consult with a spray tan artist to ensure that you choose the best and most natural-looking option for you.
At the end of the day, however, we all went through a collective trauma, and we must be kind to ourselves and not just to others. If you must undergo any of these procedures, make sure it’s simply because you want to feel good about yourself before you face people again and not because you think you need them. You are perfect and beautiful just as you are, and the people who love and care about you will see the same thing once you meet each other again. Enjoy the holidays!
