How To: Look Great on New Year's Eve

So the dress is bought, the shoes picked out. You know what hairstyle you’ll be wearing and your nail (and eyebrow waxing) appointment was scheduled six months ago. Everything is set, except of course, all that is not. The zipper on your dress suddenly gets stuck halfway up and aliens have decided to use your forehead as a landing pad for their experimental pimple outbreak. With only three days before the New Year, this is definitely one of those code red emergencies. But stressing over the minor details, you’ll just aggravate the situation as opposed to fixing it. Read on for some speedy weight loss tips, ways to clear your skin and the formula for a great New Year’s Eve.

How to Look Great on New Year's Eve Tip #1 Water: Drink It

So you had one too many servings of mashed potatoes and egg nog. You’re not the only one. Crying over those pounds won’t make them go away (unless you cry really, really hard) but drinking water will. Try to eliminate soda and any carbonated drinks before the big day. Let the water cleanse your system and fill you up. Because dehydration is often mistaken for hunger, drinking more water will also protect you from binging.

How to Look Great on New Year's Eve Tip #2 Gas: Avoid It

Let’s face it – you won’t be losing 5 lbs in three days. Not only is it nearly impossible, it’s also extremely unhealthy. Instead, focus on not gaining any more weight, or more importantly, looking like you haven't gained weight. In other words, avoid foods that will make you bloated, including (but is not limited to): beans, peas, broccoli, cucumbers, pickles, onions, apples, bananas, wheat products, eggs, carbonated drinks and cream. In addition, avoid swallowing air. Yes, air.  Avoid drinking from straws (easy with water) and bottles with narrow openings. Read more about the dangers of swallowing air here.

How to Look Great on New Year's Eve Tip # 3 Spanx: Wear It

If you hate water, love beans and don’t care enough to stress over excess pounds and bloating (but still want to look good), you're in luck because of one revolutionary product: Spanx. Got a bumpy butt? Spanx will fix it. Wish your waist was two inches smaller? Spanx will fix it. If your local store doesn’t carry Spanx, any super-strength control top panty hose will do. However, when I say super strength, what I really mean is buy the correct size. While your butt and thighs will be perfectly shaped, you definitely want to avoid the much-dreaded "muffin top" that is every girl's nightmare. Here's a simple equation to help you remember: far-too-tight elastic band plus extra holiday weight equals one major no-no.

How to Look Great on New Year's Eve Tip # 4 Skin: Treat It

Pimples suck. But they suck even more after you pop them and create scars on your face. The best way to treat a pimple is to leave it alone and apply acne medication. However, this is real life and not a PSA, and so, CP kindly directs you to Acne.Org, as we do not wish to be responsible for the disaster you may potentially cause to your face.

How to Look Great on New Year's Eve Tip # 5 Tan: Fake It

Experts believe that tanning beds cause cancer. I believe that tanning beds take too long to achieve the desired effect and make you look like a carrot. Instead of basking in those artificial UV rays, opt for tinted moisturizer. Not only will this save your skin from looking like a leather purse, but you’ll also have control over how tan (or not tan) you want to look. But here’s some advice: don’t look too tan. The fake look is so 2005. Check out the vibrant selection from Sephora and pick your price point.
