The cold, the wind, the dryness. Winter weather can be aggressive and damaging to your skin over time. By changing your skin care routine to suit the season however, you can revive dull winter skin.
Revive Winter Skin Tip #1: Moisturize
Combat dry and flaking skin with a heavy moisturizing routine. The dry, winter air can zap moisture in the skin, so using a heavier cream this season will amp up your protection against the elements. Get in the habit of moisturizing as soon as you get out of the shower or cleanse your face to seal moisture in.
Revive Winter Skin Tip #2: Exfoliate
Revive skin with one of our professional, Skin Renewal Exfoliating Treatments, then keep up the routine at home with regular exfoliation to slough away dead skin. This helps dehydrated and dry skin by allowing your moisturizer to penetrate the dermis with ease and deliver its benefits. Pat skin dry rather than rubbing to avoid further skin irritation. Added bonus: exfoliate lips with a simple sugar scrub or your toothbrush to keep them looking smooth.
Revive Winter Skin Tip #3: Protect
Love to ski, board and skate? Even mid-winter’s rays can be harmful to your skin. Use a daily SPF on top of your moisturizer for double the protection against the sun’s rays. Their reflection off ice and snow can be just as damaging long term, while a layer of moisturizer protects the harsh, cold air.
Revive Winter Skin Tip #4: H20
Inside and out! Replenish moisture in your skin by drinking plenty of water every day. Running a humidifier also helps balance out the warm, dry air pumping from the heater during colder months.
Revive Winter Skin Tip #5: Regular Maintenance & Professional Care
Use a mild cleanser in winter to prevent stripping your skin of its natural oils which contributes to dryness; and use it regularly! Getting into a good skincare routine will improve skin health over the long term for lasting results.
