Winter Skincare

I remember one of my friends slapping Vaseline on her face in the winter before heading out to the NY streets. The effects of seasonal weather changes, especially during the winter, can take a serious toll on your skin.  Facial skin ravaged by exposure to the elements can exhibit symptoms of dryness, flaking, itching, cracking, and even sore, scaly, patches. Follow my tips during winter weather.

Although it may seem contradictory, dry skin benefits immensely from exfoliation to help rid the flaking dead skin cells, to smooth the skin’s surface and promote cell rejuvenation. Whether you choose a manual or chemical exfoliate like a glycolic acid incorporating the right exfoliate to your routine a few times a week can dramatically improve dry skin.

The skin is typically hydrated after a warm shower or steam. Avoid using the four letter word “soap” or any type of astringents they’ll dry out your skin even more. Instead, use a cleanser and toner, with ingredients that hydrate and calm skin.

Maintaining the skin’s moisture content during the winter months is critical. Seal in moisture with a rich moisturizer that keeps the skin soft while offering protection against the harsh effects of the environment.

For the extremely severe skin symptoms such as cracked and sore skin use a hydrating overnight treatment to provide intensive relief.

Taking a proactive approach to care for your skin during these months will help you avoid skin damage.  If you’re living or vacationing in winter weather adjust your skincare regimen accordingly.

S.O.S. Save Our Skin! Ingredients To Combat The Sun For Summer Skin Renewal

I’ve had women come to me in tears and embarrassed from the brutal sun damage her face
suffered during summer vacay and NOT using the right skincare regimen to fend off the sun.
I was looking at the aftermath. Brown spots and freckles formed, her skin was dry, and looked
leathery (she lost her glow), wrinkles were more pronounced making her look like she aged
drastically during her vacation. That’s the opposite of what you want to look like when you get
back from a vacay! And now we had to go into emergency triage mode!
So I’m sending out an S.O.S. Save Our Skin!
