RETHINK YOUR REGIMEN
Now that the change of season seems finally to be upon us, you may begin
to notice the effects of cold weather on your skin. Regardless of your
skin type, what works for the warmer months may not get you through
the winter. This is a great time to examine your routine and make sure
you are adequately addressing your skin’s needs.
Skin starts to lose it moisture, color and glow, appearing dull and
possibly even scaly and flaky. Hands and nails dry out. Lips get chapped.
Hair loses its luster and becomes filled with static.
Our skin works to regulate our temperature with a complex interaction
of various fatty acids, lipids, triglycerides and sweat glands. With
lower temperatures and humidity, our bodies lose water. Harsh detergents
and frequent showers strip the skin's natural oils from its surface
and interfere with its barrier function. We need to support our skin
by replenishing the supply of lipids and sealing in moisture with ingredients
like shea butter, glycerin, hyaluronic acid, dimethicone and mineral
Find the right combination of products to hydrate and protect your skin,
leaving it smooth, supple and glowing. To determine your ideal skin
care regimen for the cold weather, you will receive a complimentary
consultation and skin analysis when you book a facial at SkinCareLab.
