As much as we all love a winter wonderland, the season can be TOUGH on our skin! The cold climate and dry indoor air really take a toll. Some extra attention to your skin care is key to keeping you fresh and glowing all season long.
Keep your skin hydrated! Try a humidifier to keep the indoor air from drying you out. Also make sure you’re taking advantage of moisturizer and other hydrating skin care products. And don’t forget your lips, they’re just as susceptible to the cold as the rest of your body. Keep your favorite lip balm handy. Our favorite winter moisturizer is Skinmedica’s Replenish Hydrating Cream.
Taking care of your skin starts on the inside. During the winter, and year-round it is important to drink plenty of water and take advantage of omega-3 fatty acids like fish to keep you glowing.
Cure with Collagen
Dry, itchy winter skin is also losing its elasticity. This is where collagen treatments save the day. Collagen improves the skin’s structure, increasing moisture content and elasticity. Improved elasticity improves feel and ability to rebound, reduces sagging, and creates a more youthful appearance. Consider our Ultherapy treatment which delivers ultrasound energy to the skin, jumpstarting the natural regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen. We also have a variety of other collagen stimulation treatments and our team can help find the right one for you.
Stick With the SPF
Just because we’re not poolside soaking up its rays doesn’t mean that the sun isn’t out. Keep up with your broad-spectrum sunscreen 15 SPF or higher. The Colorescience skincare makeup line is our secret weapon to PROTECT AND TREAT YOUR SKIN – preventing sun damage, premature aging, redness, fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots and dryness in simple all-in-one makeup products.
Rethink Your Routine
Your skin’s needs change with the seasons. Switch your face wash for a gentler, cream-based cleanser and limit products that contain alcohol and fragrances. A thick night cream will help hydrate your skin and protect its natural oils.
