How can harsh weather conditions and dry complexions be the best time for a facial or other non-invasive beauty treatments? Well, the reasoning is simple: The less your skin is being exposed to the sun after treatments is the key to healing much faster. Winter presents a terrific opportunity for your skin - to rejuvenate, renew and refresh dull, dry aging skin!
Your winter skincare routine and advanced facial treatments should be a powerful defense against the weathering and aging effects of winter. Winter wind is incredibly brisk, but it’s also unbelievably dry, which really dehydrates the skin. Dry skin has a higher risk of accumulating damage like flaking and irritation, and it’s also more likely to exaggerate signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.
Many popular skincare treatments, like laser hair removal and exfoliating procedures, cause photosensitivity. The skin becomes more sensitive to both direct and indirect sunlight, and over time, the side effect can permanently damage skin. Obtaining these procedures during the darkest winter months - November, December, January and February - can mitigate photosensitivity. Because the days are shorter, there are fewer opportunities to experience damage. With sufficient preparation and care, most patients can avoid photosensitivity in the sunniest months.
Winter is the best time of year to use strong spot treatments for acne, which often contain alpha hydroxy acids. Winter also provides an excellent opportunity for chemical peels, dermarolling, and scar reduction treatments. Even advanced acne treatments can be extremely beneficial in the low winter light.
Summer or spring might not be the most reasonable time to start a skincare routine, but it’s the best time to show off your glowing, youthful new skin. If you start any skincare regimen now, your skin should look refreshed and rejuvenated right around the time the weather gets pleasant and the sun comes out.
