Hydration is key. A change in air temperature and humidity can greatly affect our skin balance and consequently how dry it looks. As the colder months set in, time spent in heated conditions indoors can affect hydration levels in the skin, causing it to peel or even crack and bleed. In more mature age groups, the lines and wrinkles can appear deeper, and the skin may develop redness due to inflammation.
A good tip is to monitor how dry your lips are. They tend to be the first sign of dehydration, and if the lips are dry, then the rest of your skin will be too. Even the most balanced skin types can become dehydrated by late summer, so the focus for everyone is to improve hydration and support the skin with good antioxidant products more often. Hydration is restored with effective cleansing, exfoliation and the use of quality hydrators (such as ceramides, glycerine and topical hyaluronic acid. If there has been a lot of sun/UV exposure resulting in sun damage, then restoring hydration using these products will be super important, along with prescription (hydroquinone) or botanical skin brighteners to clear any pigmentation.
Never forgo SPF UVA/UVB rays are just as strong even if you can’t see bright sunshine so it’s essential to continue using SPF even in the winter months. It’s also easier to keep up a daily SPF routine if you do the same thing all year around.
When your skin needs an extra boost, our chemical and manual exfoliation treatments can help. Chemical peels are filled with skin-loving ingredients that promote cellular turnover to give your complexion a fresh start. A chemical peel works by shedding away old skin cells and pushing new, less damaged cells to the surface. Manual Exfoliation is done with our most sought after DiamondTome Microdermabrasion treatments or a Dermaplaning treatment.
