5 Ways To Be Thankful For The Skin You’re In

The holiday season tends to be the time of year we take a moment to reflect on those things and people for which we’re most grateful. Often overlooked is the body that carries us through life, supporting us with physical movement, protection from environmental dangers, and giving us the ability to enjoy life.

Taking care of your skin with Vail CO cosmetic procedures is one way to hydrate and enhance your appearance. Incorporating non-invasive skin treatments with relaxation methods like yoga and a gratitude journal can help you feel your best. November is National Gratitude Month, so we’re offering up five unexpected ways to be thankful for the skin you’re in.


Practicing yoga not only offers the physical benefits of increased flexibility and muscle tone, but it’s also a way to relax your mind. As with Vail CO plastic surgery treatments, the outward benefits of yoga can be seen by everyone, but how you feel on the inside is what matters. The mental benefits of yoga include:

  • Calmness
  • Centers attention
  • Increased body awareness
  • Mental clarity
  • Relaxes the mind
  • Relieves chronic stress patterns
  • Sharpens concentration

There are more than 100 different types of yoga, so finding one that fits your mind and body should be relatively easy.

SkinPen Microneedling

A new skin treatment option offered by Mangat Plastic Surgery is SkinPen Microneedling. The process involves minutely piercing the skin in order to stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The skin treatment is effective on acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots and more. Vail CO microneedling is a minimally invasive way to appreciate your skin and enhance your natural beauty.

Gratitude Journal

The Harvard Medical School reports the results of positive psychology research show that “gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness.” Gratitude develops a positive mentality in those who practice in regularly. Keeping a gratitude journal helps people:

  • Feel more positive emotions
  • Relish good experiences
  • Improve their health
  • Deal with adversity
  • Build strong relationships

Keeping a gratitude journal doesn’t have to be a time consuming process. Jotting down three to five things each night that you’re thankful for from the day will put the last 18 hours into perspective and help you be grateful for the good that came out of it.

HydraFacial MD

Use this non-invasive treatment that utilizes technology to remove the impurities from your skin. If you want to appreciate the true beauty of your skin, it needs to be stripped of the environment’s damages and hydrated regularly. Vail CO HydraFacial gives immediate and long-term results, including lightening dark spots and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Write Thank You Notes

One of the best ways to share gratitude with others is to thank them for a kind act, even if the recipient isn’t aware that it had such an impact on you. At Mangat, we receive thank you notes from patients of our Vail CO plastic surgery procedures, and it’s so rewarding to know how one change can affect someone’s life so dramatically. Share your appreciation with others through a simple note.

Being grateful shouldn’t just be a feeling. This month, take the time to thank others and yourself for being so strong. Make gratitude an action.
