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:
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.
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.
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!
The cooler weather that blows in with Fall means drier air. While it’s a nice change from the hot and sticky days of summer, it also changes your skin’s needs. Drier air equals drier skin and that means signs of skin damage and dullness become more apparent. The key to keeping your skin beautiful despite the change in weather? We’ve got 3:
The natural process of skin cell turnover slows down as we age, which creates dull skin and also emphasizes fine lines and wrinkles. R•nol 20, a medical-grade retinol serum, helps to turn these cells over. As a bonus, it also helps to unclog pores, which means fewer acne breakouts (for both young and mature skin alike!). Use daily.
2. MD Scrub
A second contributor to dull skin is the dead skin cells that build up on the skin’s surface. While R•nol 20 turns them over, you still need some extra elbow to remove them. That’s where MD Scrub comes in. With a clay base, this product delivers gentle heat as it removes dry dead skin cells and minimizes excess skin oil ultimately revealing clearer, healthier, younger looking skin that glows. Use 2x per week.
The finishing touch? A moisture boost, of course, to both hydrate and protect the fresh skin you’ve uncovered with regular retinol use and a good weekly (or so) scrub. This is also the time of year to up your moisture level. For most skin types we recommend Moisture Complete. For very oily skin types, try Sheer Moisture. Use daily.
When the weather heats up, so does the possibility of unwanted skin issues, including dull, damaged skin, excessive shine and clogged pores. But there's no reason to let your skin get you down this summer. Take our expert advice to keep it looking fresh and youthful by changing up your skincare routine with these 4 steps:
1. Keep It Clean

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.
