The hustle and bustle of the Holiday season can take a toll on any runway worthy look. But with these helpful tips, you can be runway ready no matter the stress!

Since the Holidays are full of salty hors de oeuvres and sugary cocktails, it can do a number on the slimmest of figures. That is why Sara Blakely's Spanx must have been sent from somewhere up above. These should be a staple in every woman's wardrobe. From the clingiest of Herve Leger dresses to a wispy, billowy top, Spanx offer a smooth canvas for any outfit to shine. Spanx eliminate lines underneath clothes and they even come in lacier, frillier styles for the haute couture lover in all of us. So even if you are a little puffy from the late night before or the red eye flight, Spanx will help you look ravishing, no matter the circumstances.

Winter weather can take a toll on the body. But what we often over look are our cuticles and lips. To keep our cuticles photo shoot pristine, the key is keeping them trimmed and moisturized. The Rosebud Perfume Co. has a line of lip balms that double as cuticle/hand moisturizers. With the packable tins and yummy scents like Rose, Strawberry and Brambleberry (personal favorite) you can save your lips and cuticles with one product. The tins are super portable and last forever. And at only $7 at Sephora, it won’t hit your wallet.

If its moisturizing color you are looking for, Dr. Pepper Lip Smackers are wonderful. Yes, it’s the ones you got in goody bags at birthday parties when you were younger. But this goody bag staple will have your lips saying "ahhhh"….and your friends asking what color you're wearing. This lip balm not only moisturizes, but it gives a nice, rosy glow to your lips. Perfect to boost any complexion. And at less than $2.00, you will have enough money left over for all sorts of fun, and festive holiday frocks.

No matter how much we don't want to admit it, our mothers were right. One of the most important beauty rules is to drink water. Water is essential to flushing out toxins from your body and keeping your skin hydrated. Cold weather zaps any extra moisture right out of your body. Carry a bottle in your purse, carry-on or car. There are water fountains all over malls, airports and shopping centers definitely make it a point to stop and fill up your water bottle. And if it’s a sustainable, stainless water bottle, you are also doing your part to keep plastics out of landfills.

Of course, these are only a few tips to keep you looking fabulous this Holiday season. Remember, everything in moderation and you will have the happiest of Holidays.
