How to Keep Our Skin Glowing During Winter
With the Christmas period approaching and winter only around the corner it is important to to improve our skins hydration! No, I’m not going to tell you to drink more water (although that is always an absolute must). Do not fall into the misconception that just because you have drunk an extra glass of water before bed, that is enough; our skin needs more!
So, what can you do? If you are new to Aesthetic treatments, or, prefer a less invasive approach our Hydrafacial treatment is perfect. HYDRA; it’s all in the name.
So not only does it do what it says it does, The Hydrafacial exfoliates, brightens, and rejuvenates the skin. The perfect pre festive party facial.
If you are already doing the Hydrafacial or just need that extra boost Mesotherapy will add to your skincare prep and give an extra boost. Using a bespoke cocktail of vitamins, minerals, and other topical ingredients like hyaluronic acid, DMAE, botulinum toxin, Mesotherapy is personalised to each individual skin needs for glowing, radiant, healthy skin..
In addition to in clinical treatments, it is essential to continue the skin love at home. Remember the holy triad of Vitamin C, topical Retinoids, and SPF. For improved hydration look for products with ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and other ingredients that help to absorb and hold onto hydration. For instance, hyaluronic acid holds up to a thousand times its own weight in water and hydrates the outer layers of skin leaving a youthful, more radiant finish. A personal favourite serum of mine is the MZ Skin Lift & Lustre.
A few of my favourite beauty hacks:
- Try to drink up to 2 litres of water a day, add an extra glass for each alcoholic drink.
- Remember to take your vitamins! Vitamin D deficiency is much greater in winter month so Vitamin D supplements are essential!
- Be gently with your skin! Gentle exfoliation is ideal. Use lukewarm water, never hot. Pat dry skin and avoid rubbing. Remember, if skin feels squeaky clean, you have overdone it.
- The order of skincare application is super important so remember serums first, then eye cream, moisturiser … and
- Finally, NEVER forgot SPF30 or higher
