Just like Mother Nature, your skin changes with the seasons. What works wonders for your complexion in the dog days of summer simply won’t cut it in the dead of winter. This makes perfect sense, so why do so many of us stick with the same old skin care routine 365?
We have a few theories. For starters, we’re creatures of habit. Another likely scenario is that our skin care expectations are set way too low; we’re simply resigned to having dull, lackluster complexions in the winter because we think it’s the inevitable norm. But stop right there — because we’re here to tell you that there is a way to achieve a dewy, radiant glow during the winter months, too!
Here are a few expert tips for achieving head-turning radiance any time of year.
Plan, Prepare & Protect
Ok, so there is ONE skin care habit you should do all year long, regardless of the season. It’s a habit you should adopt early in life and never EVER break: SPF application! Never leave the health and beauty of your skin to chance, which means you should apply sunscreen every morning and keep a bottle with you, so you’re never stuck unprotected! Research has proven that most of your skin’s aging is due to sun exposure, not age. This means that using sunscreen is the most important thing you can do to improve the look and health of your skin. Period.
Invest in your skin. Seriously!
Now that we’ve established the importance of protecting your skin, it’s time to take steps toward improving the tone and texture of your complexion and reversing sun damage. You can do all this and much more with professional skin rejuvenation treatments, which renew and revitalize your complexion from deep within. Now that the cold weather is here, it’s the perfect time to undergo laser skin rejuvenation treatments. Halo™, for example, is a fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment that removes old skin and triggers the growth of smoother, more vibrant new skin. For another example, the BBL™ photofacial helps to fade away common pigmentation irregularities like age spots, sun spots, freckles, and redness without breaking the skin, resulting in a more evenly-toned complexion with minimal to no downtime. Don’t worry about which treatment is right for you. We will help you formulate the optimal skin care plan to meet your skin’s unique needs during your one-on-one consultation.
Be picky about what you put on your skin.
It’s not a gimmick to make you spend more money — medical-grade skin care and makeup is essential to achieving your best complexion year-round. Medical-grade skin care is based on years of clinical research and formulated with optimal concentrations of results-driven ingredients to bring about dramatic improvements to your skin with minimal side effects. What’s more, medical grade products are designed to complement and enhance your professional skin treatments so you can achieve and maintain optimal results.
