The Importance of Skin Care During Winter

Skin care is important year-round, but it becomes even more important during the harsh, cold winters. Environmental conditions can damage the skin, leaving it rough and chapped. During this time of year, skin care treatments can revitalize your skin and keep it healthy, strong, and youthful.

Why Winter Is Tough on Your Skin

The winter season is very dry, and the air becomes harsh, thin, and cold. To combat the cold, we run heaters, which also send out harsh and dry air. Both the outdoor air and indoor heating pull moisture from the air and from your skin. As moisture is essential to keeping your skin healthy and young, the lack of moisture during the winter can cause your skin to chap, crack, and break. Sun reflecting off of the snow can cause unprotected, vulnerable skin to become sun damaged even more easily than it would in the summertime. During the winter, your skin is vulnerable to severe damage from the sun, cold, wind, and ice. All of these harsh elements can combine to strip your skin of moisture, causing it to become less healthy and age more quickly.

Skin Care Options During the Winter

Healthy, moisturized skin plays a key role in maintaining a youthful, attractive, and healthy appearance. To keep your skin healthy and hydrated during the winter, it is important to use quality skin care products such as rejuvenating facials and chemical peels. Our med spa offers skin care products to help you maintain ultimate skin health all year long. Here are some of our skin care products that are especially beneficial in the winter:
