Can winter be a time to rejuvenate the skin? Yes it can!
Harsh weather and indoor heat can really dry out the skin making it look dull, dehydrated and damaged. Good exfoliation needs to be accomplished before we can rehydrate. Over the counter scrubs can cause scratches and tears in the skin and some moisturizers can clog pores.
Peels,Microderm and Dermaplane to the rescue!
One session of Microdermabraison, Dermaplane or a Peel can remove the outer dead skin layers,unclog pores and allow for more intense hydration. Sun is best avoided for a few days after microdermabrasion and peels so winter is a great time for a treatment.
Medical grade products for smooth,soft radiant skin
Obagi C Exfoliating Daily Lotion or Obagi Exoderm/Exoderm Forte are great exfoliators. Obagi Exfoliating Cleanser’s gentle beads aid in exfoliating without scratching. Retinol also exfoliates with fewer side effects, like redness and flaking, than prescription Retin A (Tretinoin).
Don’t forget to follow up with a great moisturizer like the Obagi Hydrate, Hydrate Luxe and a sunscreen.
