Winter skin can tend to be dry, irritated and lackluster, with sub-zero temperatures and indoor heating wreaking havoc on even the best complexion. Beat these inevitable skincare woes with some tips from Berenice S. Rothenberg, Certified Clinical Electrologist (CCE), a FEHS licensed cosmetologist and a member of some of the most prestigious electrolysis societies in the country,
“Dry heat, change in altitude, stress are all factors which will change skin texture and appearance. When the seasons change, we must alter the skin care routines,” explains Rothenberg.
1. Less exfoliation
Also be gentle with you skin. “Remember, it’s your face not the floor. Don’t be rough,” says Rothenberg.
2. Moderate water temperature
Avoid the temptation to take a shower that is too hot because it can ultimately dry out skin. Keep it a little less hot & don't forget to be gentle post-shower and pat dry!
This is the time to switch to richer products. What might be too heavy in the summer may be perfect for winter!
Don’t skin SPF! Remember to apply sunblock at all times to avoid skin damage.
The HydraFacial at Berenice Electrolysis & Personal Beauty Center, uses an aesthetic technology that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, hydration and antioxidant protection to result in clear, hydrated and soothed skin.
The process is non-invasive and non-irritating while it moisturizes the skin with natural serums suitable for most skin types, including aging, sensitive, oily/acne-prone, and very dry skin. Following the treatment, there is a noticeable improvement in the appearance of fine lines, brown spots, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.
