• Use a peel. Peels help to give your skin a deeper exfoliation than a scrub and tend to last longer as well. This is something simple you can do at home to keep your skin in tip top shape. This is especially helpful during the winter when the colder air tends to dry and crack your skin. You can schedule a 30% acid peel at Pure Day Spa, so don’t be afraid to ask your facialist!
• Add an eye cream to your daily routine. Because the area around your eyes are up to 4 times thinner than the rest of the skin on your face, an eye cream is important especially during the winter months to prevent dried out skin.
• Use a cream or milk based cleanser. The ingredients in cleansing gels and bars can sometimes dry out your skin. Additionally, using hot water to wash your skin can add to this drying effect. Using a milk or cream based cleanser can help add back some of the moisture that is being removed.
• Don’t skip the sunscreen! Many people think that they do not need to wear sunscreen when it is not visibly sunny. This is not true. Up to 78% of the sun damage done to your skin is not from direct exposure. To ensure this does not happen, you should wear a sunscreen on your face every day with an SPF of 40 or more. Some make up foundations even include a sunscreen in it, so this may be a great option as well.
• Use a weekly hydrating mask. Although a mask will not be able to replace your daily moisturization routine, this may help add additional moisture to help prevent skin dryness during the winter. Hydrating masks help to plump up your skin cells and stimulate the natural moisture inside your skin giving you the natural glow you may be looking for.
• Moisturize daily. Moisturizers not only help keep your skin hydrated, but also protect it from the everyday elements you come in contact with.
• Look into serums. Serums can be helpful because they are able to penetrate the skin in order to correct issues like aging and dryness. While moisturizers are helpful and necessary in your daily routine, they sit on top of the skin instead of penetrating it like serums do.
