"Vitamin C keeps the skin looking fresh and bright, and slows down environmental damage," she explains. Clients can also restore moisture with hyaluronic acid (HA). "Oftentimes, when there isn't enough moisture in the air, the HA pulls moisture from the deeper tissues," notes Pierce. Rest Up There's a reason they call it "beauty sleep"—the more shuteye people get, the better their skin looks. "Sleep is essential for tissue repair, cell regeneration and strong immune function," says Rouleau. "A lack of sleep can put stress on the body, triggering cortisol production and causing breakouts and clogged pores." Rest-deprived guests may also have issues including dark undereye circles, dullness, eczema and loss of elasticity. The upshot? Insist they hit the sack! "Ideally, people should aim for seven to eight hours each night," says Rouleau. The National Sleep Foundation also recommends keeping a consistent bedtime and wake-up time; getting natural light fi rst thing in the morning; limiting light exposure before bed; and scaling back on food, drink and other stimulants as bedtime approaches. All of these help regulate the body's internal clock, making it easier to fall asleep at night and awake refreshed. Cuccio adds that a quick getaway is always benefi cial. "Ever notice how fl awless people look after returning from vacation? That's because they've relaxed and taken care of themselves for a few days," she says. "There is no quick fi x. Beautiful skin must start from the inside out, and getting enough rest is absolutely essential!" u "VITAMIN C KEEPS THE SKIN LOOKING FRESH AND BRIGHT, AND SLOWS DOWN ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE."
