The Ultimate Guide For Winter Skin Care

When we think of Winter skin care, the first thought in most people’s heads is…..

M O I S T U R I Z E……..

When A Moisturizer Won’t Hydrate

There are certain situations where a moisturizer won’t hydrate the skin.  A client can apply the thickest and heaviest cream, but their skin just won’t retain the moisture.  That’s because they have a compromised lipid barrier.  You can learn all about this in our Understanding The Lipid Barrier article that explains the function of the lipid barrier 

Winter Skin Care Is Complex

It’s more complicated than just slapping on a moisturizer and calling it a day…. or night…. cream.  Skin is more complex than a one size fits all mentality for treating skin in a season.  Especially a season that has so many life events happening.  Winter isn’t just about the weather.  It’s not just about the skin.

Winter skin care is complex.  There are so many life events happening throughout the season.  There’s 2 major holidays.  Those holidays bring about many disruptors to healthy skin!  Between Christmas, and New Year’s Eve, the amount fat, sugar and alcohol that your skin has to endure is crazy.  Let’s not even start to talk about the extra stress, the extra make up and the lack of sleep that comes along with all of these crazy holidays. It will be hard for your skin to keep a luminescent glow!

Then there’s January and all of the New Year’s Resolutions with its crash diets and crazy workouts.  Your skin will experience a whole new kind of stress, your skin will beg you to help it renew itself.  As the calendar turns to February, we have the Superbowl, the Oscars, Valentine’s Day and Barry’s Birthday.  The amount of pizza, nachos, cake and candy everyone will be eating can only compare to the amount of  wine and beer that is being used to wash it all down!  Your skin is going to be begging for some cold weather cures.
