Even here in sunny California, the winter months bring harsh dryness and dehydrated skin that call for some extra TLC. At our med spa locations in the Roseville, CA, area, we specialize in cultivating healthy, gorgeous skin, which includes protecting it from seasonal environmental damage. If you find your complexion chapped, irritated, or flaky during the colder months, we’ve got you covered.
Read on to learn more about a few procedures and products we recommend for keeping skin hydrated, replenished, and healthy in the winter season.
Winter air is especially dry, which causes our skin to lose moisture and leads to flakiness, roughness, and an overall dehydrated feeling. DiamondGlow™ is a multifaceted treatment that refreshes your skin by exfoliating away dead cells, extracting blockages, and infusing the skin with powerful serums. It’s amazing for getting rid of those dead or dry cells and replenishing plenty of hydration.
You can choose between a few different SkinMedica® Pro-Infusion serums for the last step of your treatment, but we recommend the Ultra-Hydrating serum for winter. It’s full of hyaluronic acid, which hydrates your skin without breaking it out. Treatments every 4 to 6 weeks will keep your skin in its best shape all through the season.
Famous for its hydrating and soothing abilities, HydraFacial® is your ultimate defense against dullness and dryness. This gentle treatment is customized to address any concerns you may be facing, whether that means wind-chapped irritation, pore clogs from heavy holiday makeup, or an overall dull or lifeless look. We recommend treating your skin to a HydraFacial® once a month to keep it hydrated and happy.
Medical-Grade Skincare Products
On top of your usual skincare routine, you’ll want to pay extra attention to moisturization in the winter. Medical-grade products are amazing for preventing moisture loss during the day, restoring any lost hydration in the evening, and soothing irritation or flakiness associated with dry skin.
If you’re in the mood to pamper your skin with a mask at home, opt for one with hydrating ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and vitamin E. Explore ultra-moisturizing products in the DA™ Skincare Store’s Moisturize & Hydrate collection.
