Is Your Skin Winter Ready? 4 Easy Tips to Get Ready.

Written by our Aesthetician Traci

I love summertime; the weather, the vacation, but especially my skin's sun-kissed glow! However, maintaining that glow seems nearly impossible in the winter. So, here are a few tips/tricks to keep your skin looking healthy and fresh in the upcoming winter months:

Tips & Tricks to Keep Skin Looking Healthy in Winter

1. Exfoliation! Winter months are the perfect time for more aggressive exfoliation treatments. Chemical peels are a deeper form of chemical exfoliation to help remove dead skin cells and stimulate cell-turnover. This will help undo any damage from the summer and also improve your skin's overall health.

2. IPL Photofacial Treatments are another great way to give you back that fresh-faced glow. Now that our tans are fading, the dark spots seem to appear. The IPL laser will zap the spots aways, giving your skin a more even tone and texture.

3. HydraFacial MD Treatments will help restore your skin throughout the dry winter! With the use of hydrating cleansers and serums, the HydraFacial balances your skin and replenishes it with antioxidants to help prevent against environmental aging as we take on the winter elements. 

4. Finally, a proper at-home skincare system will make a world of difference! Switching to heavier creams will prevent your skin from drying out. The A.G.E. Interrupter cream by Skinceuticals is a wonderful product that helps hydrate the skin and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Also, hydrating serums are a great addition to any skincare routine. Again, these serums will help to balance your skin and replenish the antioxidants that free radicals take away. Don't forget to wear sunscreen! Just because the summer is over it doesn't mean the sun stops doing damage. Elta MD has many different sunscreens to accommodate different skin types. Not only do they protect from the sun's UVA rays, they are also rich with ingredients that have many skincare benefits.

Summer Glow All Winter Long

Keeping your skin looking healthy and fresh in the winter doesn't have to be a struggle anymore! Customizing a treatment plan and home-care regimen will help to give you that summer glow all winter long!
