  • Winter Skin? A 2-Step Solution

     

    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.

  • Brighten Up Your Winter Skin

    Winter may be a wonderland, but it doesn’t do any favors for your skin. Cold temperatures and dry air deplete crucial moisture, and you’re left with dry, tight skin that’s lost its luster. Prevent yours from suffering from the winter doldrums this year with these tips and tricks for keeping it hydrated and beautiful all season long! 

    Banish Dry Skin

    When the skin loses moisture, not only does your skin feel different, but it looks different also: It’s tight. It isn’t smooth. All of your fine lines and wrinkles become more obvious. The good news is there’s a simple 2-step skin fix: 

    Step 1: Exfoliate

    Step 2: Use a rich moisturizer designed to lock moisture in. 

    Not only will your skin look more alive, active ingredients from other skin care products will be better absorbed and makeup will go on smoother. Simply put, your skin will thank you!

    Get Your Glow Back

    Dull skin is the number one complaint during the colder months and you can thank dead skin cells for that. A physical scrub is one of the best ways to instantly eliminate the surface cells responsible for dullness and leave you with fresh and glowing skin.  

    For an added boost in brightness, add a weekly mini-peel to your routine. Perfect for every skin type!

  • Love Your Skin This Winter

    There’s nothing harsher on the skin than the 1-2 punch it gets in the winter with freezing temperatures outside and artificially dry heat inside. The result is a lack of hydration and a build up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin, both of which exacerbate the appearance of age and wrinkles. Show your skin some love this winter with these 3 simple steps:

    1. Hydrate

    The key to youthful looking skin is pretty simple: hydration! And sometimes even the richest moisturizers alone don’t cut it. Try adding a hydrating serum for a hydration boost that won’t let your skin dry out. Be sure to wear it under your winter moisturizer.

    Try HP Gel, our winter hydration secret to enhancing skin moisture with hyaluronic acid. 

    2. Clarify

    It’s one of Dr. Few’s beauty tricks for 2016 — retinol! A vitamin A extract, retinol gets rid of fine lines and wrinkles at night, clarifies the skin and keeps the pores clear, which is also great for controlling adult acne. Be sure to only use a retinol every other night during the winter months to avoid dehydrating your skin.

    Try our R•nol 20 Serum to enhance cell turnover with less irritation than prescription retinoids. 

    3. Exfoliate


    Even with your best efforts to keep winter skin fresh and hydrated, there’s another crucial step: exfoliation. While a retinol aids in skin cell turnover, it’s exfoliation that actually cleans that dead layer off to reveal the clean and clear skin underneath.

    Try MD Scrub, specially formulated to remove dead skin cells and reveal healthier, younger looking skin!

  • Your Winter Skin Fix

    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.
