Now that winter is here, flaky, dehydrated skin is a widespread condition many of us have to struggle with. Anyone can suffer from dehydration. Just as you update your wardrobe to fit the cold season, you must also adjust your skin regimen to prevent dry, lackluster skin and promote glowing, healthy skin all season long.
First and foremost, slather on the sunscreen every day. Winter UV rays are just as harsh as summer UV rays and contribute to wrinkles, age spots and skin cancer. Be sure to apply moisturizer daily and top it off with a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30.
To have beautiful skin this winter, it is important to work closely with your esthetician to hydrate and prevent damage. Once you and your esthetician have decided on the appropriate in-spa skin care regimen, it is crucial to adhere to an at-home routine to continue proper care of your skin between spa visits.
Beware of over-the-counter hype!! Do you have a graveyard under your bathroom sink where department products you no longer use are laid to rest? There’s a reason for that. Over-the-counter products, no matter how expensive they are, do not deliver the results that cosmeceuticals provide. The main differences between over-the-counter and cosmeceutical products are the active ingredients being used, their amounts and the level of penetration into the skin.
Some of the benefits of professional-grade products are:
- Manufacturer’s process.
- They focus on results instead of mass production and selling.
- Cosmeceuticals offer an extensive product selection to accommodate varying types of skin conditions.
- They use high-quality ingredients with proven results.
- They incorporate high SPF into their products to further protect delicate skin.
To get desired results, you need to use skin care products that you trust and that are recommended by licensed estheticians. To effectively improve the appearance and health of your skin, it is imperative that you commit to both the in-spa and at-home care regimen your team designs for your specific needs.
