Your skin is your body’s first defense against the environment. Every season of the year, your skin has a hard time defending your body against environmental threats. It’s important to make sure your body has all the resources it needs to make that defense successfully. Here are some tips for preparing your skin for winter weather.
If you have skin that is sun-damaged or dehydrated due to salt water exposure, you can get rid of it and start fresh by using a chemical peel. We offer light chemical peels that can both remove damaged skin and nourish the underlying skin layers as well as deeper chemical and laser peels that can penetrate more deeply to help improve the signs of aging.
Moisturizers can help protect your skin against cracking, flaking, and dryness. However, not all moisturizers are right for all skin types. We can evaluate your skin and recommend a moisturizer that will give your body what it needs.
You want to remove excess oils, toxins, and dirt, but you don’t want to wash away too much of your body’s natural moisturizers. Hot showers may feel good on a cold day, but they are hard on your skin. We can recommend cleansers that will remove dirt and oil without harming your skin.
Winter can be hard on your skin, but by starting with a clean slate and using the proper moisturizers and cleansers, you can prepare your skin for this harsh season. To get your skin ready to withstand the onslaught of Jack Frost, please contact Facial Aesthetics in Denver today for an appointment.
