Winter can be a tough season for the skin, with colder temperatures and drier climates taking their toll. If you are worried about how this winter will impact your complexion, the staff at Incredible Veins Skin & Body has a few tips to help you keep your skin in top condition all winter long.
Maintain a Healthy Diet
What you put into your mouth will make a difference in the appearance of your skin. This is the time of year to load up on nutritious fruits and vegetables chocked full of antioxidants that will help your skin fight the free radical damage of the season. Drink plenty of water as well, to help combat the dryness that is inevitable during the cold weather months.
A daily round of cardio will keep your blood pumping, which will ensure your skin gets all the oxygen and nutrients it needs. It may be too cold to walk outside, but you can still get your workout in at the local fitness center or even in the comfort of your own home. A treadmill, stationary bike or elliptical will fit the bill for indoor workouts. Your skin and your body will thank you!
Don’t Forget Sun Protection
You may think the sun is less of a threat during the winter months, but those rays can damage your skin in the winter just as much as the summer. In fact, reflections off the snow can even make those dangerous rays even more powerful! Stock up on your sunscreen year round and don’t leave the house without applying it to the exposed parts of your skin.
Choose High Quality Skin Care
Now is not the time to skimp on your skin care program, when the outdoor elements and indoor dryness is wreaking havoc on your complexion. Use medical-grade skin care products that offer high concentrations of active ingredients that will provide you the greatest benefit. At Incredible Veins Skin & Body, we offer the full Epionce line and we can help you select the products that will work best with your specific skin type and concerns.
Indulge in Professional Treatments
Winter is also a good time to indulge in a few professional treatments to keep your skin looking and feeling its best throughout the season. Laser skin rejuvenation and microneedling are two popular ways to refresh and revive a dull, tired complexion. Injectable treatments effectively restore youthful volume and smooth away lines on faces that are beginning to show the signs of passing time.
