How to Best Care for Your Skin This Winter

November 24, 2020

Many people find a great skincare product, incorporate it into their skincare routine, and never want to try other products or treatments. But even as you cling to your favorite skincare product for dear life, you could be damaging your skin instead of repairing it. Your skincare routine should not look the same in the summer as it does in the winter. Your skin has different needs during this time. Here are some of the best ways to care for your skin as temps get colder

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!

We can’t stress this enough. The winter months are very drying to your skin. As temperatures drop, the humidity in the air also usually decreases significantly, taking away some of your skin’s natural moisture. You also spend more time indoors, and indoor air run through a furnace or other heating system is also very dry air. The end result is that your skin becomes dry and prone to injury or rapid aging. For best results, moisturize right out of the shower or just after washing your face.

Cold weather? You still need sunscreen.

Just because the weather is colder, it doesn’t mean that the sun is any less harmful. Those UV rays are still coming down, contributing to higher cancer risk. You should wear at least a light sunscreen on all exposed surfaces of your body, including your face. Some moisturizers or foundations contain sunscreen, usually in smaller amounts, but more effective.

Moisturizing facials get you back on track.

If you find it hard to stick to a diet, you’re probably going to find it hard to keep up with a skincare routine. When you visit us we can give you a moisturizing facial that will hydrate your skin and allow you to start over with developing your skincare routine. We use specially formulated serums with our facials to give you the best results.

We also have several skin rejuvenation treatments that could help to reverse the aging damage that has been done through frequent sun exposure, acne, or other issues. Our aestheticians can guide you to the best products for the condition of your skin. Because they are somewhat individualized, you can get the best cleansers and moisturizers for winter and beyond. 

The best way to find out what anti-aging treatments and skincare products are best for you is to come see us for a free consultation and full recommendations.
