5 Winter Skincare Treatments You Should Be Doing
You may not realise it, but winter presents a terrific opportunity for your skin. We know what you're probably thinking - how can harsh weather conditions and dry complexions be the best time for a facial or other noninvasive beauty treatment? Well, the reasoning is simple. Between the shorter daylight hours and heavier clothes, the less your skin is being exposed to the sun. Avoiding the sun after skin treatments is the key to healing much faster.
Now let's get into the best winter skin beauty treatments in order to jump-start your beautiful spring and summer skin!
Laser Hair Removal
Who has time for shaving? It's time-consuming and expensive. If you're looking for a more permanent solution to this annoying problem, laser hair removal is for you. Also, a huge benefit to getting this beauty treatment done in the winter is that it works best on pale skin and dark hair. Before and after treatment, you're advised to keep the treated areas out of the sun which is a lot easier to manage in the winter months. Best of all the treatment is safe, effective, and painless! Kiss shaving goodbye forever.
Think of a facial peel as a tropical, indulging, refreshment for your skin. Professional facial peels are fast and effective leaving you with immediate cell renewal and amazing results. Out with the old cells and in with the new! Avoiding the sun after a facial peel is the smartest thing you can do, and in the winter this is easier than ever.
Tighten, tone, lift and refresh your skin's collagen with an RF (Radio Frequency) skin tightening treatment. This noninvasive and non-surgical treatment will reshape and contract your skin's collagen to make you look years younger. This skin treatment is perfect for winter time because a week before treatment it's advised to stay out of the sun. After the procedure, you'll want to avoid the sun as well as any outdoor or sweat-inducing activities such as exercise or swimming. Avoiding the sun and pool is a lot easier when you're not tempted with it in the summer! (Try it for yourself - your first 20-minute session is complimentary).
Skin needling is a skin treatment which uses tiny needles to stimulate the body's natural collagen and elastin supply. This results in much younger, healthier glowing skin. Skin needling can be used to lessen wrinkles/fine lines, as well as treat any blemishes such as stretch marks, cellulite, or scars. Recovery time is minimal and you can cover up any red marks with mineral makeup. This skin care treatment is incredible for those feeling the effects of central heating, low temps, or overall lack of Vitamin D in the winter. It's recommended to stay out of the sun post-treatment.
LED light therapy is great for reducing inflammation/redness and soothing your skin. If you suffer from acne, sun damage, rosacea, scarring, or wrinkles, this pain-free and non-invasive therapy will give you the beautiful skin you deserve. LED treatments work by using bright light-emitting diodes which send low-level light energy into the deeper levels of your skin. Light therapy has its own unique benefit in the winter months since the LED light helps patients counteract seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Light therapy is less expensive, gentler, and a much more natural solution compared to plastic surgery.
