In the winter months, skin can be exposed to harsh elements such as extreme cold, low humidity, high winds, and excess sun exposure from reflecting off of snow, all combined with that dry indoor heat! These conditions lead to dry/irritated skin that can be very difficult to manage.
Here are our top 3 tips for healthy winter skin:
1. MEDICAL GRADE SKINCARE (we cannot emphasize this enough). Medical grade skin care products contain active ingredients that are clinically proven to have positive effects on the skin. They contain ingredients that are proven to penetrate the top layer of the skin rather than just sit on the skin. This penetration allows the products to achieve structural results beneath the skin’s surface, leading to better results.
-- Products we recommend: ZO Skin Health GSR (Getting Skin Ready Line) and Elta MD.
2. Add moisture: Run a humidifier and drink plenty of H2O- rule of thumb is half of your body weight in ounces!
3. Don’t forget sunscreen! Just because it is cold outside, doesn’t meant that that UV rays are not penetrating your skin.
