Spa facials help rejuvenate your skin and achieve a natural glow at any time of year. Keeping your skin looking great during the winter can be a challenge, even with a facial to bring back your skin’s health. Today’s blog from Emerge Medical & Well Spa, where we do many types of spa facials, discusses some cold weather skincare tips to keep you looking and feeling your best.
The air is dryer during winter months. You probably also take hot baths and showers because the air feels cooler, even if you turn the heat up in your home. Higher-temperature water dries out your skin more than cool water. When you combine hot showers with more handwashing to avoid spreading germs, you get the perfect recipe for dry skin. Take advantage of your favorite moisturizer to keep your skin soft and supple during the winter. The spa facial experts at Emerge Tulsa can recommend products for you.
Rely on Gentle Cleansers
Use gentle cleansers on your skin. Harsh products may strip moisture from your skin rather than preserve it. Cold weather means your skin needs all the help it can get! Do yourself a favor and use gentle products with natural ingredients or ones without fragrances. Spa facials can use gentle products on your skin to preserve its natural glow.
Lower Your Air and Water Temperature
Hot temperatures for your indoor air and shower water dry out your skin more compared to cooler temperatures. Keep your air temperature lower and bundle up with a sweatshirt or sweater. Take warm showers rather than hot showers. Some of our spa facial regimens can help your skin recover from dryness, although we recommend less exfoliating during cold weather.
Use a Humidifier
A humidifier can help your skin stay pliable in your home, whether you use a small model for a single room or invest in a whole-house humidifier. Humid air in the winter can also alleviate allergies or colds, in addition to being healthier for your skin! See how our spa facials can help relieve symptoms associated with dry air.
Much of your winter skincare routine comes from the outside, such as spa facials and gentle moisturizers. However, your skin’s health also comes from beneath the surface. Eat healthy foods that support your skin’s health, such as lean meats, nuts, and fish. Antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables also help keep your skin feeling great, including cranberries, blueberries, pumpkin, pomegranate, and squash.
