Dry, cold weather is the hallmark of the winter season. Your skin begins to work hard at retaining its moisture while cold winds and indoor heating undermine your efforts to maintain what’s left of your skin’s summer suppleness. Proper planning will enable you to fight back against the drying effects of the winter months and keep your skin moisturized year-round:
Take Tepid Showers. Although taking hot showers in the winter time makes you feel warm, this is one of the main reasons your skin becomes dry. Taking lukewarm showers and using a good moisturizer afterwards will help your skin stay soft and smooth.
Choosing Quality Products. Yon-Ka Paris offers multiple options to boost hydration. Ask your Aesthetician which products will work best for your skin
Facial Skin Care. Our Hydralessence Facial offers long-lasting & deep hydration even for the driest skin. Schedule facials regularly, at least once a month - your face will thank you!
Hands and Feet. You may notice that your hands and feet are drier than usual in colder weather. In between trips to the spa for hydrating manicures and pedicures, you should always wear protective gloves when you’re outside. Remember to regularly exfoliate, buff and moisturize your feet.
Sun Protection. Don’t stop your sunscreen routine. Just because it’s winter, that doesn’t mean the risk of sun damage has gone away. Protect yourself with an SPF 30 sunscreen and wear sunglasses often.
Following these tips will help your skin stay soft and supple this holiday season. Reserve a consultation with Spa la Vie and let us advise you on more ways you can moisturize and nurture your skin during the cold winter months!
