Winter Skin Hydration Regimen

The #1 concern I see in the treatment room is dehydrated and sensitized skin. It usually stems from lack of water intake, genetic background, using products that are too harsh, and/or lack of regimen all together.


The good news is that you can start somewhere and protect your skin before the blustery cold winter is here for the next few months. And in New England.. that's like April lol!


Below is a basic outline regimen. Sure it would be great if you could do all of these, but when you're coming from no regimen, this can seem time consuming, overwhelming and potentially expensive. Rome wasn't built in a day. The best thing I can recommend, is the "bookends of skincare" method. Start with a cleanser and a moisturizer. Once you knock down those 2 steps, add in an exfoliant, add in a toner and you'll start to really see improvements. Don't give up, it can take up to a month to see improvement as we slough off dead skin cells to reveal healthier skin which comes to the surface.


And always remember if you're not sure and have questions, skin consultations are always complementary and can be booked online under the main menu at the top of this page.



PreCleanse:

Made with Apricot Kernel Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil, Safflower Seed Oil, it will melt away layers of excess oil, sunscreen, makeup, and environmental pollutants that build up on skin throughout the day.


Intensive Moisture Cleanser: Removes impurities while actively nourishing dry, depleted skin. Coconut and Murumuru Seed Butter, help protect the skin’s barrier.


Daily Microfoliant:

One of my absolute favorite products!!! Rice-based powder activates upon contact with water, releasing Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes to polish skin to perfection. Having a proper exfoliation routine will allow for better penetration of serums and moisturizers. 


Skin Hydrating Masque Hyaluronic Acid traps moisture to deliver time-released hydration for lasting suppleness. Lycopene-rich Tomato Seed lipids help restore skin’s protective barrier, enhancing moisture levels for healthier-looking, smoother skin.


Antioxidant Hydra Mist Refreshing antioxidant toner that helps firm and hydrate. Convenient mist supplements skin’s protective barrier by creating an active antioxidant shield to help fight free radical damage and help prevent the signs of aging.


Barrier Defense Booster

Concentrated oil booster soothes, nourishes and moisturizes to restore balance to skin. It also helps relieves dryness and reinforces barrier integrity against future irritation.


Intensive Moisture Balance / Super Rich Repair / OR Barrier Repair

  • IMB: Hyaluronic Acid, Echinacea, and Aloe Vera, lock in hydration to restore the skin’s moisture balance, reduce fine lines and barrier performance.
