Four Tips for Radiant Skin this Winter
17 Nov 2022
With Autumn in full swing and winter right around the corner – it’s time to think about switching up your skincare routine. Just like changing your clothes when the seasons change, it’s the same with your skincare!
Our team is going into detail about how to switch up your skincare routine to acclimate to Wisconsin winters. We are noting how critical it is to change up your daily skincare routine for optimal skin health and best results. Here are a few of our favorite tips on transitioning your current routine to prep for Winter.
1. Switch to a Thicker Moisturizer
With the environment changing, switching to a thicker moisturizer at night time will help restore any lost moisture that came from those long hot summer months ago, while also preventing moisture loss. Switching to a thicker moisturizer will help repair hydration levels in the skin overnight. Aesthetician Caitlin recommends ZO Skin Health Renewal Crème and or Recovery Crème for overnight repair and hydration. The perfect moisturizer to treat dry, irritated or compromised skin.
2. Apply Sunscreen Daily
While the sun’s rays are more intense during the summer, it is vital to apply sunscreen in the fall and winter, especially. The harmful rays are always present in all four seasons and we need to keep our skin protected at all times. As UV radiation accelerates and increases the risk of skin cancer, it is recommended to use a daily SPF 30 or higher and reapply throughout the day. Caitlin’s favorite sunscreens are Sunforgettable by ColorScience and SkinBetter Science Tone Smart SPF 75. For sheer coverage, try SkinBetter Science SPF 70 Sheer!
3. Add a humidifier to your household
Along with your daily skincare regimen, investing in a humidifier during the fall and winter will help to boost hydration at home. Humidifiers add moisture to the air, and your skin constantly interfaces with the air. The more moisture in the air, the more moisture it’ll share with your skin. You can also opt for a diffuser as well.
4. BE CONSISTENT WITH SKINCARE TREATMENTS
Optimal skin health is comprised of 20% professional skincare treatments and 80% skincare products. To address specific concerns, SKN BAR Rx has a wide variety of professional skincare treatments to provide significant results. For adding hydration, brightness and evening skin tone and texture, our chemical peels are a great option. Microneedling is awesome for addressing signs of aging, scaring and texture. Whereas if you are looking to address pigmentation, damage and deeper aging signs, consider a laser treatment like BBL or Halo Resurfacing Treatment!
