How to Hydrate Dull and Dry Skin After Winter
There are many things to love about winter but let’s be honest, dry skin isn’t one of them! The problem stems from cold air, which has far less moisture than the warm air we enjoy in the summer. The loss of moisture, coupled with strong winds, can strip your skin of its natural liquids, leaving it feeling dry and irritated.
The cold winter months can be very harsh on the skin, so if you haven’t already, now’s the time to think about giving it a little extra TLC.
Up the Moisture
Additional hydration is a great place to start. The more you nourish and moisturise your skin, the less chance you have of it drying out. Swapping to a richer moisturiser in the winter can help keep your skin soft, radiant and glowing.
Apply an SPF
Scarves, hats and gloves are all winter essentials, but do you know what else is? An SPF. Most of us are well aware of the need to wear an SPF in the sunny summer months but how many of you can honestly say you wear it in the winter too? What you may be interested (and perhaps even shocked) to hear is that 90% of UV rays can still penetrate through clouds. Even if the sun’s not visible, it has the potential to cause serious damage to your skin, so it’s absolutely vital to wear an SPF all-year-round. An SPF like OMNI by Esther will help protect against nasty skin cancers like Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Melanoma. That’s surely enough to persuade you, but it’s also worth noting than SPF will help to keep your skin looking youthful by preventing premature wrinkles and the formation of brown spots too.
Seek out specialist treatments
Another way you can improve your skin in the winter is through exfoliating and nourishing skin treatments like hydrodermabrasion. Wondering what exactly hydrodermabrasion is? Here’s everything you need to know…
What is Hydrodermabrasion?
Hydrodermabrasion is a dynamic skincare treatment that uses powerful water jets to exfoliate, restore and hydrate the skin. Essentially, it targets the outer layer of skin, removing dead skin cells, eliminating dark spots and reducing hyperpigmentation. It’s taken over microdermabrasion as the ‘celebrity facial’ of the moment and with good reason. It causes less pain, less irritation and there’s no risk of damage to the skin long-term. You see, whilst microdermabrasion has its merits for a deep exfoliation using fine crystals, it can be pretty harsh on the skin. Most people experience redness and irritation post-treatment and over time, it can even cause broken capillaries, increased oil production and thinning of the skin. Hydrodermabrasion offers a much gentler approach to exfoliation. It’s suitable for all skin types, including sensitive, dry and oily skin and can be tailored to address your unique skin concerns; providing an overall more bespoke skincare treatment. Piqued your interest? We’re pleased to offer this revolutionary treatment at EF MEDISPA in the form of our advanced Jet Facial.
What is the Jet Facial?
Our comprehensive Jet Facial goes beyond your average hydrodermabrasion treatment; combining cleansing, exfoliation, hydration and antioxidant infusions to leave your skin feeling well and truly nourished. Whether you desire clearer skin, a smoother complexion or anti-ageing benefits, it will tick all of the boxes and more. The Jet Facial utilises the revolutionary Jet Peel machine (a handheld water jet wand) to disperse air and droplets of saline solution at high speed. The pressured air will unclog your lymphatic system, deeply exfoliate your skin and help to remove impurities, toxins and dead skin cells. What’s more, it will stimulate collagen production, helping to smooth out wrinkles and leave your skin looking naturally plumped. After exfoliation, we load the Jet Peel machine with a bespoke infusion of vitamins to help hydrate and nourish your skin from within. The infusion is tailored to your skin type and designed to address your skin concerns i.e. vitamin C for targeting anti-ageing or salicylic acid for combating acne. Our Jet Facial is non-invasive, non-irritating and compatible with all skin types. Enjoy it as a one-off to cleanse, exfoliate and brighten your complexion for a special occasion or as part of an on-going treatment plan for improved long-term results.
Why is this Treatment Useful?
The Jet Facial has fantastic nourishing properties, is extremely hydrating and great for Lymphatic drainage. It’s the ideal treatment for winter when your skin is dry and dehydrated and all-year-round for maintaining a clear, radiant and youthful complexion. Specific skin concerns such as acne, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles can all be addressed with the Jet Facial. What’s more, you can improve the tone and texture of your skin without extensive downtime. Unlike with microdermabrasion, there’s no pain, redness or irritation. Our Jet Facial is a comfortable and relaxing hydrodermabrasion treatment that is gentle on the skin with impressive natural results.
