Winter is Coming: Weatherize Yourself for Healthier Looking Skin

Winter is Coming: Weatherize Yourself for Healthier Looking Skin

What is it about this time of year that conjures up such lovely images? Sleigh rides, cozy sweaters, steaming mocha lattes brimming with whipped cream. But that’s not the old thing old Mr. Winter brings with him when he blows into town. Let’s not forget chapped lips, dry hands and cracked feet that feel like someone is rubbing sandpaper across them. As the seasons change, its important to switch up your skincare routine so that your skin can still look and feel its very best, even in the dead of winter.

Keeping healthy skin in winter is the real challenge. Your skin loses its natural moisture, resulting in itchy and dry skin. In some cases, it can even lead to psoriasis, eczema, and other skin conditions. If you are struggling, we have a few winter face care tips that help you maintain your skin’s moisture.

  • Choose Products Wisely- Cleansers that contain moisturizers won’t strip your skin of its natural moisture barrier. If you have acne or breakouts, use products containing ceramides, hyaluronic acid, hydration serums, and glycerin to help in repairing the moisture barrier of your skin.
  • Protect Your SkinProtect your skin from the cold wind, snow and rain if you are stepping out in winter. Wear gloves, caps and do not forget your sunscreen.While the warmth of the sun may feel pleasant, the UV rays can still be damaging to your skin. Choose a sunscreen that provides a physical barrier against the sun.
  • Take Lukewarm Showers- It is very tempting to go for hot showers when the temperature is dipping. But if you love your skin, avoid them. Instead, use lukewarm water to shower and wash your face. Hot showers dry your skin quickly, and if you do not moisturize it immediately, your skin can develop cracks and winter eczema. Once you have taken a lukewarm shower, apply a moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acid and ceramides. This will keep the moisture barrier intact and prevent dryness.
  • Stay Hydrated- Be it inside your home or outside, the air is drier in winter. And as a result, water evaporates from your body easily. Hence, you need to keep your skin hydrated. You can also install a humidifier to manage the moisture level in your home. This will certainly keep your skin happy.
  • Don’t Overdo the Exfoliation- Exfoliating the skin eliminates dead skin cells. But your skin barrier is already compromised due to the dry and cold weather. Exfoliating your skin once a week is fine. This will boost skin regeneration and product absorption.
  • Follow a Daily Routine- It doesn’t need to be elaborate. Here’s a very basic and simple skin care routine that anyone can follow to keep their skin happy during the winter. Cleanse your skin once or twice a day, preferably in the morning and before going to bed. After washing your face in the morning, apply a light daily moisturizer to lock the moisture in. And at night, use a heavy moisturizer or overnight cream. This should be done on damp skin because just-washed skin absorbs moisture better.
  • Don’t Forget to Exercise- We totally get it! It’s hard to leave the warmth and coziness of the blanket behind and get moving on a chilly winter morning. But do it if you love your skin. Exercise will pump up your heart rate, which in turn, pumps more blood to your organs and skin.
  • Maintain a Healthy & Balanced Diet- Consume a lot of seasonal fruits and veggies. Berries are exceptional sources of vitamins and antioxidants that your skin needs to stay healthy during the cold weather. Fruits, veggies, and other food items such as salads, soups, juices, and milk can aid with hydration. Give your body the nutrients to keep the skin healthy.

Remember that diet, exercise and hydration all play a vital role in keeping skin looking fresh. Our skincare tips should have you healthy and glowing, all winter long. If you are still experiencing flakiness or extreme dryness, please call us for a skincare consultation.

The Hydrafacial: Dramatic Results, No Downtime

The Hydrafacial: Dramatic Results, No Downtime

Lighten sun damage, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, clean pores and reduce their size.

Electrolysis
Hydrafacial with machine in background

Let’s talk about the hydrafacial and if this treatment is right for you. A hydrafacial is a form of skin rejuvenation that uses jets of water to gently cleanse and exfoliate skin, resulting in improved suppleness and texture. It is essentially a peel, microdermabrasion, and hydrating mask in one. But unlike most facials you may have received before, this one is done using a medical-grade device that pulls debris out of your pores and exfoliates the skin. A hydrating serum is then applied, which provides additional rejuvenating benefits. This procedure helps treat a variety of skin conditions, including acne, dryness, and wrinkles. It’s similar in principle to a regular facial, but provides more dramatic results.

Are you looking for a facial that can lighten sun damage, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, clean pores and reduce their size between treatments? Need a facial that delivers high-end hyaluronic acid, minerals and antioxidants down to the dermal level? We recommend a hydrafacial. Truthfully speaking, any facial is great for your skin. But if you want to trigger your cells to turn over producing more noticeable results, then a hydrafacial is the way to go. The use of medical-grade products also ensures skin that’s brighter and more youthful in appearance.

Hydrafacial Benefits:

  • Improves skin tone
  • Clears clogged pores
  • Reduces the appearance of scars
  • Reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation
  • Reduces the appearance of large pores
  • Treats some types of acne
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Plumps and hydrates skin

Each hydrafacial session takes approximately an hour and no downtime is required. Unlike with chemical peels, you can resume your normal activities right away. While you shouldn’t experience any redness or peeling after your session, it’s still best to avoid exfoliating treatments for the first couple of days after a hydrafacial.

The Miracle of Microneedling

The Miracle of Microneedling

Innovative and Effective Therapy for a Number of Skin Issues

Microneedling rejuvenates and plumps skin with minimal discomfort, very little downtime, and can be adjusted to fit each person’s needs.

Microneedling before and after 2

Have you heard about microneedling? I know, I know. It sounds hideous. But trust me, you want in on this. So what is microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that’s used to treat skin concerns by stimulating collagen production. Also known as collagen induction therapy, this treatment creates tiny punctures in the skin using miniature, sterilized needles. Innovative and effective, microneedling activates your body’s natural cellular regeneration to help tighten and lift skin, while minimizing many common skin problems. This treatment is used for skin revitalization and can be used in conjunction with other procedures for added benefits.

The process of healing after microneedling can help reduce the appearance of scars or dark spots and improve the elasticity of the skin. It is said to rejuvenate and plump skin with minimal discomfort, very little downtime, and it can be adjusted to fit each person’s needs.

Microneedling creates a pattern of micro channels that significantly increases the production of collagen and elastin to leave the skin smoother, fresher, and more uniform. Micro channels form micro injuries which causes the body to send blood and growth factors to the area resulting in glowing, healthy skin.

Benefits of microneedling can include:

  • reducing the appearance of scars, including acne scars
  • reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • reducing enlarged pores
  • reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, or dark spots
  • smoothing uneven skin tone
  • improving skin elasticity
  • reducing the appearance of stretch marks
  • reducing the appearance of scars
  • promoting hair growth in people with alopecia

Since your skin will be sensitive after your procedure, we recommend avoiding sun exposure and sweating immediately following your procedure. You should also refrain from using products containing alpha-hydroxy acids or retinol for about a week. But do stay hydrated and use antioxidant serums and collagen-stimulating peptides for better results.

The Perfect Time for the Perfect Derma Peel

The Perfect Time for the Perfect Derma Peel

Fall is finally here in the south, which means everyone who got a little too much sun exposure this summer could benefit from a peel to give their skin a younger, more refreshed look. A chemical peel like The Perfect Derma Peel is a medium depth peel that provides deep exfoliation to reveal healthier, clearer skin underneath. This is the perfect peel to help eliminate sun damage and reduce scarring. It includes Glutathione, which is known as the body’s master antioxidant. Glutathione penetrates deep into the cellular level of the skin to fight oxidant damage and is the most current anti-aging answer to premature wrinkling. The Perfect Derma Peel’s proprietary blend of acids delivers the Glutathione below the surface of the skin, where it improves overall appearance of the complexion, as well as cellular health.

Skin is comprised of layers, so when one layer flakes off, the skin sends up healthy, fresh-looking skin to the surface. Your skin will look brightened after The Perfect Derma Peel and your facial lines will become softened too. Your daily skincare regimen is like a regular workout, but peels are the occasional boot camp to kick it into high gear.  The Perfect Derma Peel transforms the skin and corrects such issues as hyper-pigmentation, melasma, rosacea, acne, scarring and helps the skin to defy the aging process. This peel is designed to be used every 3 to 6 months. The results continue to improve each time.

Everyone can benefit from The Perfect Derma Peel. It requires no pre-peel skin preparation. The process has easy application, fast results and is virtually painless. It takes around 15 minutes from start to finish. Downtime for most clients is less than 10 days. And best of all, the Perfect Derma Peel can be used on all skin types to correct any number of skin issues.

Caring for your skin after the peel is very important. Peeling usually takes place about three days after the application. During this time, you will gently wash your face gently at night and apply the towelette included in the Perfect Peel take-home kit. You can wear makeup the day after your peel if you prefer but moisturizer can by hydrating and we don’t want skin hydrated while healing takes place. Your skin will feel very dry until you begin to peel, but know that the new skin underneath will feel refreshed and rejuvenated. Once the peeling begins, you can use the moisturizer provided in the take-home kit. Just remember not to pull, rub or pick at your skin. No work-outs on days 1-5, as your skin will be sensitive to both heat and sweat. Once the healing process is complete, you can resume your normal daily skincare routine. This may sound like a complicated process, but we promise you, the results are absolutely worth it. One Perfect Derma Peel and you’ll be hooked!
