Skin Care tips for the Winter Months

Forget saving grace, let’s talk about saving your face during these harsh winter months. In fact, many of my clients are suffering from dry to dehydrated skin. Seeing your esthetician for a facial will definitely help rebalance your skin and reset the pH level of your skin but there are several things you can do from home to help maintain dry skin. One of my biggest and easiest suggestions is to invest in a humidifier. There are different types of humidifier and they vary in prices. However, the point of having a humidifier is return moisture to the air which in turn helps protect the skin. To learn more about humidifier and which one suits you the best, visit www.consumerreports.org

Another suggestion is to review your current skin care regimen and consider switching out your current moisturizer for a thicker or more enriched version. Ideally, your local esthetician can match on what works for you skin. In the meantime, here are a few my favorites and most popular with my clients:

Lastly, consider traveling with a skin toner and sprit lightly on your face throughout the day. Most skin toners contain humectants. And humectants help keep the moisture from evaporating from the skin. There are wide varieties of skin toners available; however, one popular and budget friendly option is rose water. Try to avoid the ones that have high proportion of alcohol even if your skin is oily. Alcohol can be very drying to our skin and the idea is to your skin hydrated and balanced throughout the day.

    Yes fabulous! Humidifiers do wonders – I keep mine in my bedroom at night. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day is also a given.
    Do the moisturizers you’ve suggested contain anything for sun protection?

    • Thanks Lill & Jill for your inquiry…great question. The suggested moisturizers do not contain sun protection. My recommendations were strictly meant for a good hydrator. That said, you should always wear sunscreen during the day. If you’re current moisturizers don’t contain sunscreen then it’s okay to apply your preferred sunscreen over the moisturixer. I like PCA Hydrator Plus SPF 30. Hope this anwswers your question. BTW, how did you about my blog? Thanks and enjoy your day.
