One of the keys to youthful looking skin is moisture, especially during the colder months when dry air can strip you dry. So how do you get moisture into the skin and make it stay there? With a little TLC from a couple of medical-grade skin care products that work to clean up the outer layer of the skin and infuse it with moisture.
The Benefits of Exfoliation
Chances are, those wrinkles you see are being emphasized by dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Retinol which everyone over the age of 30 should have as part of their skincare regimen, helps to turn cells over, but you still need some help in removing those dead skin cells. That's where exfoliation comes in. Whether it's professional microdermabrasion or chemical peels, or a good at-home exfoliation product, exfoliating clears off that layer of dead skin to reveal fresh, glowing skin underneath. Once revealed, it’s time to hydrate up with a boost of moisture.
Add Essential Moisture
No matter how good your moisturizer is, sometimes we all need a little boost of essential moisture. That's where adding a hydrating serum, such as HA Serum, comes in to give your skin what it needs: A drink of water. HA Serum is a hyaluronic acid-based product that will add essential moisture and, thereby, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
No matter your age or the season, it's a simple, universal truth: acne is aggravating. If you're looking for a way to keep those blemishes at bay, we’ve got some professional advice for how to keep your skin clean and clear!
1. Stimulate Cell Turnover with Retinol
If you suffer from acne, you may benefit the professional power of office-based chemical peel treatments. Chemical peels work by removing dead skin cells and cleaning out clogged pores. Once-a-month peels can do wonders!In between peels, we believe in the power of a daily retinol. Not only can retinol help to keep those skin cells turning over, but it can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for overall skin rejuvenation!
We recommend R●nol 20 Serum for clean, clear and beautiful skin!
2. Keep it Clean
Looking for a boost to keep your skin clean? Keep your skin clean all year long with an at-home cleanser that effectively cleans and keeps your skin beautifully balanced.
We recommend LF Cleanser to thoroughly foam away oil, debris and makeup without stripping your skin of vital moisture and essential oils.
3. Moisturize Strategically
Depending on the weather and how oily your skin is, it can be difficult to find the right amount of moisture:
- During the warmer months, or when your skin needs only a minimum of moisture, we recommend HP Gel, an oil-free hyaluronic acid product that locks moisture in. This topical gel is water-based, fragrance-free and non-comedogenic.
- During cooler, drier months, we recommend our Sheer Moisturizer to your daily skin regimen. This doctor-approved product provides a light touch of moisture on the outside of the skin, while maintaining the skin’s natural moisture barrier from within.
Two steps to clean, beautiful, hydrated skin!
When winter blows in with colder weather, that means drier air, which brings on dry skin and, unfortunately, more visible signs of aging, damage and dullness. But don't lose heart. There are a few simple steps you can take to say "no" to dehydration, dull skin and uneven skin tone, and a resounding "YES" to fresh and youthful skin this season!
1. Scrub Away Dull Skin
No matter how well you take care of your skin, every few days it needs a good scrub to remove the dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface. These cells are responsible for overall dullness and are the culprits behind making fine lines and wrinkles visible on the skin.
Keep your skin glowing with MD Scrub. Using a clay base, this product delivers gentle heat as it removes dry dead skin cells, minimizes excess oils and reveal healthier, younger looking skin.
2. Hydration Help
As the moisture levels in the air decrease, so do those in the skin. It's a given that everyone should swap out their light summer moisturizer for a richer one come winter, but even that can leave a girl's skin wanting. Give your skin a little hydration help this year by adding a hyaluronic acid gel underneath your regular winter moisturizer.
Keep your skin hydrated and beautiful with HP Gel. Using hyaluronic acid, a natural component of the skin, HP Gel enhances skin moisture without heaviness.
3. Reduce Redness
For all the damage the wind, colder temperatures and dry air can cause, we give thanks to skin serums that not only protect, but repair. The combination of green tea, resveratrol and caffeine have been shown in studies to reduce skin redness with 6 weeks of continued use.
Reduce redness and protect your skin with Daily Anti-Oxidant Power Serum. This product is an antioxidant powerhouse that includes green tea, resveratrol and caffeine to protect and repair delicate facial skin.
