Winter Skin. Need a Little Extra Hydration? The First Step: Exfoliation. 

With snow adrift on the mountain tops and the air being cold, your skin needs a little extra hydration. The first step? Exfoliation. Second step….Read on Skincare Enthusiast!

The two best products for getting your skin cells fresh and new is SkinCeuticals Retinol and Retexturing Activator. Retinol 0.3 is recommended for first-time retinol users and is ideal for continued use or for conditioning skin as a prerequisite to SkinCeuticals Retinol 1.0

“I usually have patients begin using retinol twice a week, which helps cells turn over up to six times faster. Retexturing Activator is another great product that you can use every night since it’s very gentle. This product is a dual functioning serum that exfoliates as well as hydrates. Hyaluronic Acid is one of this fan favorite’s primary ingredients,” says Dominique Well, ARNP.

Fun fact: kombuchka is an ingredient in Retexturing Activator! A byproduct of the tea fermentation process, this naturally derived ingredient has an antioxidant effect and promotes radiant, soft, smooth skin.

You can also add our new staff favorite – the H.A. Intensifier, to boost the skin’s hydration by 30%, and SkinCeuticals’ Hydrating B5 Masque once a week. A HydraFacialMD is also a great idea to boost your cellular renewal while ensuring your skin’s hydration.

In terms of in clinic treatments, our Advanced Clinical Peels provide a deeper exfoliation and also infuses serums customized to your skin’s needs. Add on our BioCellulose Mask treatment for that added  boost and you’ll have hydrated, dewy and fabulously glowing skin by the time you step back outside all bundled up.

Another key thing to remember: wear sunscreen! Just because the sun is out less frequently during the winter months doesn’t mean the U.V. rays are any less capable of shining through the snow clouds. SkinCeuticals sunscreens are necessary all year round, and a little mineral make up touch-up during the day helps too. Visit Well Medical Arts today and pick up a few of these Winter must haves!
