Three Great Treatments to Keep Your Skin Glowing Through Winter

Cold winter weather and lack of sunshine can dull and dry your skin, making you look years older than you are. Dry, winter skin affects people of all ages, and it may appear visibly flaky and feel rough to the touch. Really dry skin can even crack and bleed if not properly treated.

To keep your skin in tip-top condition throughout the winter months, you may need to try a few things outside of your normal skincare routine.

Tips to protect winter skin

There are several ways to ensure your skin stays healthy and glowing throughout the winter. Start by moisturizing the air and sting properly hydrated. A quality humidifier and some extra glasses of water can go a long way in protecting your skin in cold, dry weather.

Avoid taking very hot showers or showering for longer than 10-15 at a time. Long, hot showers  can further dry out your skin, causing itching, and in worst case scenarios, even infection. Use gentle, unscented soaps for sensitive skin. Consider rubbing your body with bath oil immediately after getting out of the shower to preserve extra moisture.

Remember to apply quality moisturizers that contain sunscreen every day you’ll be outdoors, even when the sun seems nonexistent. Using the right moisturizers for your skin type can ensure you’re giving your skin what it needs without worrying about excess oil or breakouts.

PCA Skin® products are a good choice for nourishing skin without any synthetic dyes or chemical preservatives that can further dry your skin. Make sure to care for all of the skin on your body, especially spots where it’s frequently exposed to the cold air and harsh winds, like your face, lips, and hands.

To really get your glow going, consider trying one of these great professional treatments to say goodbye to dried out winter skin:

Hydrating Facial

At Pure Skin Aesthetic & Laser Center, hydrating facials are available to improve your skin’s hydration. Using a Clarisonic brush and a gentle cleaner, the dried, dead skin cells on the surface of your skin are removed to restore its natural glow.

For deep hydration, Pure Skin’s hydrating B5 serum is massaged into your skin to create a moisture barrier. The final step of this refreshing facial is a hydrating gel masque that locks in the hydrating serum for long-lasting protection.

SilkPeel Luxury Facial

Pure Skin’s SilkPeel luxury facial is designed to detoxify and rehydrate your skin. This skin resurfacing treatment uses exfoliation and extraction to remove dead skin cells coupled with a steam-cleansing massage that eliminates toxins to refresh your skin. Next, an infusion of hydrating serums are applied to improve the moisture and appearance of your skin.

Vitamin C Facial

To restore the radiance of your skin, consider a vitamin C facial. This treatment is effective at not only improving the appearance of dull-looking skin, but it can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Your skin receives detoxifying steam cleanse and microdermabrasion treatments to remove dead skin cells. Each treatment uses a highly-concentrated vitamin C serum that is gently massaged into your skin. An antioxidant firming masque is then applied over top of the serum to ensure brighter, more youthful-looking skin.
