I know it sounds strange, but your skin is great at telling me what time of year it is. As soon as clients start complaining about their dry, irritated, or blotchy skin, I know it’s winter or soon will be. Forget about winter weather patterns! It’s time to tackle winter complexion patterns! If you’re ready to trade in dull, irritated skin for a luminous, dewy glow, listen up! Here’s a look at my favorite complexion rescuers!
Calm it down.
Dry, irritated, skin needs extra TLC during the winter months. In last week’s blog, I mentioned night-time product application, but the benefits are so great it’s worth repeating! Before bed each night, slather on an ultra hydrating, restorative skin care product like SENTE Dermal Repair Cream, which features heparan sulfate analog (HSA), an optimized form of a naturally-occurring healing molecule. Night time application is key because your skin goes into repair mode at night. Your parched skin will soak up every last drop of product to leave you looking refreshed and rosy come morning. That extra moisture packs a punch of benefits, taking you through the day with calmer, more resilient, and happier skin.
Schedule a BBL™ photofacial. Pronto.
A photofacial, also called BBL (for broadband light) is a proven anti-aging treatment. This non-invasive light therapy is the gold standard for correcting stubborn pigmentation irregularities like age spots, freckles, and redness. But it’s also clinically proven to reverse aging skin by stimulating new collagen growth. BBL photofacials are one of my all-time favorite skin treatments because they literally make your skin look younger! My clients who regularly undergo BBL photofacials are known to look younger than their age. I recommend scheduling a series of BBL’s to correct skin problems and undergoing periodic maintenance treatments throughout the year to maintain your age-defying glow.
Get your beauty rest
Beauty sleep is no joke! While you snooze, your skin is busy repairing and regenerating itself from the day’s damage. I absolutely adore SkinMedica’s TNS Essential Serum and Alastin® Skincare’s Regenerating Skin Nectar with TriHex Technology®, but we offer so many effective skin care products, it’s hard to name just a few. We can help you choose the best products based on your unique concerns and skin care goals.
Don’t forget your greatest beauty weapon of all—SPF! UV rays do damage year-round, clouds or shine, so be vigilant about applying SPF 30 or greater every day of the year.
