Winter Dryness? Shed Winter Skin With These Tips!

Winter Dryness? Shed Winter Skin With These Tips!

Believe it or not, the environment can have a significant impact on your skin. As the weather gets cooler, your skin might become drier because of cold air stripping the moisture from your skin. Shed those dull and dead winter skin cells through exfoliation and nourish your skin with the right moisturizer.

Try a Skin Brightening Facial

Our Citrus Brighten & Tighten facial is an excellent option if you’re looking for a skin brightening facial. The main ingredient we use in this facial is vitamin C, which boosts collagen production, reduces hyperpigmentation, brightens a dull complexion, and decreases inflammation. Vitamin C also improves signs of sun damage, so this skin brightening facial will restore radiance in your skin when winter dryness gets in the way.

The Citrus Brighten & Tighten facial begins with a skin cleanse, following a facial massage to stimulate the skin, application of a Lemon Zest Enzyme while under steam, continuing into a soothing extraction process. At the end of the treatment, we apply a vitamin C solution that will penetrate deep into the skin, eye cream, and sunscreen.

Another skin brightening facial our cosmetic dermatology team highly recommends is the Glow Peel, which reveals a hydrated and smoother layer of skin by removing the outer layer through light exfoliation and minor extractions. Your skin will feel rejuvenated and soft, and patches of dry skin will be more.

Regular exfoliation is critical for keeping your skin clear, as dead cells can build up and result in an uneven, dull skin tone. Many of our facials include exfoliation, but if you need something a little more heavy-duty to get rid of those dead cells, our Glow Peel is the right choice for glowing, youthful skin.

Combat Dryness with Skin Care in Miami

Our cosmetic dermatology team also recommends you regularly exfoliate at home to get rid of dead skin and maintain soft skin. However, remember to avoid over-exfoliating, as it could sensitize your skin and cause irritation. The Green Tea & Bamboo Exfoliator from our custom line of skin care in Miami is formulated to deliver a soothing wave of heat as it gently removes dry, dead skin cells, excess oils, and residue to reveal healthier, younger-looking skin. With soothing green and white tea, this exfoliator is great for those who don’t want to use anything too harsh or abrasive. Its clay base holds on to energy, so when it’s combined with water, it releases that energy in the form of heat as an exothermic reaction.

Although the scrubbing element is bamboo, this exfoliator is gentle because the bamboo is micro-sifted, making it less likely for micro-tears to appear and cause irritation. One of our exfoliation tips is to pick the right exfoliant for your skin.

Many people look for an exfoliating skincare product and pick up the first one they see on the shelf, and then end up damaging their skin. You may not know this, but there are several different types of exfoliants, including physical, chemical, and electronic.

While all aim to remove dead skin and help your skin appear soft and glowy, not all are suitable for everyone’s complexion. Make sure to have a consultation with a doctor from our cosmetic dermatology team to help pick the right skin care in Miami for you.

After exfoliating, make sure to moisturize! Hydrating your skin is key in the wintertime, so our cosmetic dermatology team recommends using our Night Souflé, a moisture-boosting cream fortified with ceramides, antioxidants, peptides, green tea polyphenols, resveratrol, and hyaluronic acid.

This moisturizer will support barrier repair, lipid replenishment, and nourish dry skin back to a healthy, hydrated state. After cleansing the skin, apply it to your face, neck, and chest in the evening or as directed by your physician.
