In addition to the cold weather, different eating and drinking habits throughout the holiday season can wreak havoc on the skin. For many people, this results in dry skin during the winter. Developing a comprehensive winter skincare plan is the best way to combat dry skin this winter.

Today, we’re going to go over some of the key products and steps to include in your winter skincare regime to keep your skin in the best condition possible.

Caring for Your Skin in the Winter

One of the best things you can do for your skin during ANY time of year is to meet with a professional in the medical aesthetics industry. If you’re in Regina, we hope you’ll come see us!

When you meet with a medical aesthetics professional, they’ll instruct you not only on the products you should be using for your specific skin type, but they’ll also guide you in the right steps to take for caring for your skin.

Important Tips for Hydrating Your Skin

In the wintertime, switching to a moisturizer that’s oil-based rather than water-based can actually add a protective layer to your skin to actually keep moisture in, rather than letting it get dried out by in-home heating or the cold air outdoors.

Another way to hydrate is from the inside out, and you can do this by making sure you drink plenty of water throughout the day. Eating a variety of nutrient-rich foods is another great tactic for keeping your skin healthy from the inside out.

Hot, dry air like the kind that’s blasted in your home when you turn the heat up might make us feel warm and cozy, but it’s hard on your skin. Consider investing in a humidifier (or several small ones you can place throughout your home) to add moisture to the air. Not only can this help your skin, but it can also make breathing feel easier.

The Best Skincare Product to Use this Winter

At Pasqua South Medical Aesthetics, one of our favourite products for combatting dry winter skin is the Vivier Lexxel Moisturizing Cream. This gentle moisturizer alleviates and protects against chapping, cracking, and roughness, while helping to relieve itching due to dry skin. It’s also ideal post-procedure to soothe, calm, and repair your skin.
