As the leaves change and the air turns crisp in Colorado, it’s a sure sign that winter is just around the corner. While this season brings with it the joys of snowfall and cozy evenings by the fire, it can also wreak havoc on your skin. The dry air and low humidity levels can leave your skin feeling parched and in need of some extra care. To help you maintain a healthy and radiant complexion throughout the colder months, here are six essential skincare tips, including product recommendations and treatments.
1. Hydration Is Key:
Colorado’s dry climate can lead to dehydration both internally and externally. To combat this, start by drinking plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from within.
Additionally, consider incorporating a ceramide or lipid-based moisturizer and hydrating serum into your daily skincare routine. Products containing hyaluronic acids, like SkinCeuticalsB5 Hydrating gel or Revision Skincare’s Hydrating serum, work wonders for replenishing moisture and plumping the skin. SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Moisturizer is an excellent fatty-acid based moisturizer. It helps maintain the skin barrier and protect against dry air damage.
For an extra hydration boost, schedule a Hydrafacial treatment at our medical aesthetics practice. Hydrafacial delivers instant results by cleansing, exfoliating, and infusing your skin with hydration and antioxidants. Our Omorvicza or Dr. Babor boosting serums take the treatment to the next level. For an extra layer of hydration, we offer several different Esthemax Jelly Masks. These masks seal in moisture and leave the skin smooth.
2. Gentle Cleansing:
Avoid harsh cleansers that can strip your skin of its natural oils. Opt for a gentle, hydrating cleanser, such as Cetaphil Daily Cleanser, to maintain your skin’s barrier and prevent dryness.
Regular exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells and promotes a brighter complexion. Consider using a mild exfoliating scrub like the Revision Skincare Pumpkin Enzyme Mask at home, but limit use to once or twice a week. The Pumpkin Enzyme Mask contains Bixa Orellana seed extract, jojoba esters and Squalene to moisturize and soothe the skin. The naturally derived pumpkin enzyme and cocoa micro-exfoliating powders gently sweep away dead skin cells and debris. The mask also contains gold Brazilian clay that detoxifies the skin.
4. Collagen Stimulation:
Experience the transformative effects of PRX-T33, a revolutionary treatment available at our medical aesthetics practice. PRX-T33 stimulates collagen production, reducing fine lines, improving skin texture, and leaving your skin looking rejuvenated. This non-invasive treatment is perfect for addressing the effects of Colorado’s dry climate and promoting healthy, youthful skin. This chemical collagen stimulator contains TCA, Kojic acid, and hydrogen peroxide that work in the dermis. This is the glow booster everyone needs!
5. Protect from UV Rays:
Don’t underestimate the importance of sunscreen, even in the colder months. The sun’s rays can still damage your skin, especially at higher altitudes in Colorado. Use a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher daily, such as the EltaMD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46, to shield your skin from harmful UV radiation.
By following these six essential skincare tips and incorporating the recommended products and treatments, you can ensure your skin remains healthy, hydrated, and radiant throughout the Colorado winter. Embrace the season with confidence, knowing that your skin is ready to face whatever the colder months bring.
