Just because your sun-kissed summer glow has faded away doesn’t mean you have to accept dull, lackluster skin. There are plenty of steps you can take to fight back against the winter blues and restore a healthy, radiant complexion.
Before we get into the nitty gritty of winter skin care, here’s a look at some of the causes of dry winter skin that you should avoid:
- Long, hot showers
- Not moisturizing
Instead, follow these skin care tips to give your skin what it needs most this winter:
1. Switch to a soothing skin care routine.
Winter skin craves hydration and moisture amongst anything else, so finding the best moisturizers, lip balms and creams is top priority. As to not irritate your skin, avoid products that use any of the following drying ingredients: alcohol, fragrances and retinoids. Instead, look for clinically proven products packed with skin-soothing nutrients like hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid, ceramides, glycerin and shea butter. Not sure where to look? Don’t worry, we’re here to help! At Artisan’s Rejuvenation, we carry medical-grade skin care products from trusted brands such as ZO® Skin Health, Epionce®, EltaMD® and our very own AR Skin Care. During your consultation, our skin care experts will work closely with you to analyze your skin and determine the best products and regimen to help you reach your goals.
2. Embrace laser season for luminous skin.
Did you know winter is the season for laser skin treatments? During the winter months, you have ample time to heal away from the sun and give your skin the rejuvenation it needs. Laser skin treatments stimulate your body’s natural healing response, exfoliating your skin and promoting new collagen and elastin growth to reveal a smoother, younger-looking complexion that glows. We offer a wide range of laser skin treatments to help reverse sun damage and signs of aging, including CO2 fractional laser skin resurfacing, IPL photofacial and PICO Genesis™. The key with any laser treatment is to be patient. While you may see initial results within a week or so after your first treatment, optimal results will build as your skin continues to heal and generate new collagen with every session you do.
3. Peel to reveal the glow!
Chemical peels are pros at removing a dull complexion to reveal radiant, renewed skin — perfect for shedding winter damage. We provide professional peels to give your skin the healthy glow up it deserves, brightening skin, creating a more even tone, smoothing texture, diminishing lines and wrinkles, fading dark spots and more with minimal downtime. Ranging in different intensities, our peels include the VI Peel, Epionce chemical peel, Zo Skin Health 3-Step Peel and ZO Skin Health Stimulator Peel. Our team will help find the right peel for your skin care needs during your personal consultation. You can expect to see results about five to seven days after your first peel, although we recommend a series of treatments to reveal optimal results.
