Everyday winter skin care

Between the cold outside, the dry air and heat inside, it’s no secret that winter weather can take its toll on your skin. Top that off with a hot shower, and your skin may be cracking, itchy, or dry. Our clinicians recommend these top 5 products to help combat winter effects on skin and have you feeling and looking your best!

To add moisture:

SkinCeuticals Daily Moisturizer

Especially in the winter months, skin needs added moisture to help combat the drying effect of the colder, dryer air. This top-selling daily moisturizer, perfect for normal to oily skin, is formulated with vitamin E and three nutrient-rich algae extracts to hydrate and nourish your skin while reducing the appearance of pore size.

For your recovery regimen:

EltaMD Daily Starter Essentials Kit

This kit contains best-selling gentle, protective products, and is the perfect way to care for your skin year-round. Safe for daily use and intended for all skin types, this skin care regimen includes all the essentials: cleanser, moisturizer and sunscreen. The pH-balanced rich foaming cleanser contains enzymes that aid in reduction of skin inflammation. Follow that with the lightweight moisturizer, which has a soothing feel, and uses Squalane, a plant-derived ingredient, to protect against moisture loss and keep skin feeling supple. Finish with the protecting broad-spectrum SPF, which goes on smooth and absorbs quickly, without leaving shine or white cast on your skin.

To gently cleanse: 

 

Epionce Gentle Foaming Cleanser

Ideal for normal to combination skin, this gentle cleanser is a patient favorite for removing dirt, oil and makeup without stripping natural protective oils. This cleanser will leave your skin feeling supple and healthy. Remember to use warm water in the winter to avoid drying out skin.
