5 Steps to Include in Your Winter Skin Care Routine

Though we’re in California, the team at Entre Nous Aesthetics in Menlo Park still recommends changing up your skin care routine to help your skin with the change in temps! 

Here’s how.

Exfoliate Regularly.

During wintertime, low humidity and indoor heating can cause your skin to look dry, cracked, or flaky.

While we generate, on average, a new layer of skin every 27 days, you can help speed up this natural shedding process with exfoliation. By using the right, gentle exfoliation products, you can remove the dead skin cells and debris from the surface and more quickly reveal the newer, smoother tissue hiding under neath for a youthful glow.

Stock up on moisturizer.

The air tends to borrow more moisture from our skin during drier months than during the summertime. The right moisturizer can lock in water after cleansing so that it holds more water, dries out less quickly, and stays smooth and radiant from day to night.

Use a humidifier.

The less dry your atmosphere is, the less the air will pull out the moisture from our skin’s surface. Try using a cool humidifier in your home in the areas you tend to spend the most time in, such as the bedroom or your home office.

Don’t forget your SPF.

Sun exposure is one of the most common ways to prematurely age the skin. UVA and UVB rays cause damage from the inside out—and this sun damage is just as possible in the winter as it is in the summer. In fact, the sun is CLOSER to the earth during this time of the year. But it’s easy to forget your SPF when you aren’t frequenting the beach or pool as often. Make sure to apply your SPF liberally and often throughout the day. Your future skin will thank you later!

Visit a medical spa.

Winter is possibly our favorite time of the year to start new clients. We can help you get through the holiday season, plan your next year of aesthetics treatments, and recommend medical-grade products to help you solidify your beauty routine.
