Taking care of your skin properly works in cycles. Your skin care routine has to change at least slightly when the warmer months turn into fall and winter. The key to having the healthiest skin possible in the winter is keeping it hydrated. Using a moisturizer could do the trick, or you could complement it by doing chemical peel treatments as well. Here are some simple tips to keep in mind as you try to keep your skin as healthy as you can this winter.
Keep Your Skin Hydrated
When it’s not hot outside, it’s easy to forget to drink enough water. Drinking water is one of the keys to properly hydrated skin, but you may even need to take it a step further this winter. Richer creams may be needed to help keep the skin moisturized. Do you find your face to be dry after getting out of the shower? This is not uncommon, but applying a regular moisturizing cream to your face and other areas of your body will help prevent it.
Consider A Chemical Peel
A chemical peel is a great way to start off the winter season. You don’t need to have severely damaged skin to undergo a chemical peel treatment. In fact, it’s recommended to exfoliate your skin periodically anyway, and a chemical peel is one way to do it. Exfoliated skin can help your moisturizing creams work better, since they can absorb into healthy skin and pores better than dead skin.
Try A Skin Resurfacing Treatment
If you already have damaged skin of any severity, now is one of the best times to do a laser skin resurfacing treatment. It will give your skin plenty of time to heal, since you typically don’t do many outdoor activities during the winter anyway. The CO2 fractional laser used in the procedure today will help rejuvenate your skin with very few side effects and minor discomfort. You owe it to yourself to at least explore laser skin resurfacing treatments this winter season.
