As the temperatures, cool and the air becomes drier, your skin starts to feel the effects of winter weather. Dry, chapped skin doesn’t just happen on your hands – your face and lips can catch the brutal brunt of cold wind and dry air. As you look for ways to keep your skin moisturized and healthy, consider a couple of non-invasive procedures that will not only give your skin more elasticity, but you’ll also enjoy a more youthful appearance just in time for the holidays.
Just because you don’t feel the sun as strongly as you do in the summer doesn’t mean the harmful UV rays won’t damage your skin. Continue to apply sunscreen with a high SPF even in the winter months, especially if you’re active in winter sports like skiing.
One of the not-so-pretty side effects of cold weather is dry, shriveled skin. This is especially true in delicate areas like around your lips. Belotero treatment is a non-surgical way to fill in small wrinkles and etched-in smile lines. Often considered a “light filler,” this injectable evenly integrates into your skin, giving a fuller appearance.
We love a relaxing, hot bath just as much as the next stressed out mom, partner, and wife, but hot water can strip your skin of essential oils and deplete the moisture needed to keep your skin healthy. Save the glass of wine for the couch and grab a quick bath or shower. Be sure to apply a moisturizing cream while you’re still damp for maximum moisture results.
Not only will the HydraFacial treatment restore the moisture to your winterized skin, but you’ll also notice a clearer, younger-looking appearance. The treatment is ideal for all skin types and treats hyperpigmentation, oily/congested pores, fine lines, and wrinkles. There are virtually no side effects to this non-invasive treatment and you can go about your day as planned immediately following the 30 minute session.
Water isn’t the most appealing beverage during chilly days, but your body still needs it to stay hydrated. Just because you’re no longer surviving hot summer months doesn’t mean your skin doesn’t need the benefits that comes with eight glasses of water each day. Not only will the water keep your skin clearer and moisturized – you’ll also rid your body of toxins more quickly.
It’s crucial to protect your skin during the winter months. Keeping up with some basic habits like applying sunscreen and drinking plenty of water will help get your skin winter-ready, and adding treatments like Belotero and a HydraFacial, will have everyone thinking you just returned from a tropical vacation.
