Winter Air: Ways to Protect Your Skin

Winter Air: Ways to Protect Your Skin

If you live in an area where the winters are harsh then you know firsthand how the dry, cold air can wreak havoc on your skin! It’s important to consistently stick to a routine that works for you, and we are here to help you find the best skin care for dry skin.

Cover Up

This may seem obvious, but many people find themselves out in cold winter air without any coverage. Whether you are stepping outside for a moment or outside working and “will warm up from moving”, you still need to cover up! The moment you expose your skin to the harsh elements it begins to dry, so always put on your gloves and scarf (a winter face mask is ideal if you have one) to create a layer between your skin and the winter air.

OxyGeneo Skin Rejuvenation

This treatment provides your skin with the care it needs during the cold months by exfoliating the damaged top layer and boosting the essential nutrients for the skin underneath. Allow your skin to fully absorb and benefit from your skincare products after this quick procedure that shows instant results! Read more about OxyGeneo Skin Rejuvenation here.

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!

Dry, cracked skin is not only unsightly to look at, it also hurts and makes your body more susceptible to bacteria and infections from open skin wounds. Keeping your skin moisturized during cold and dry spells of weather will prevent it from becoming cracked and allow your skin to stay healthy and nourished in cold weather. Though it sounds simple, we often find ourselves in a hurry or forgetting to moisturize. Keep a bottle of your favorite body and face lotions at work, in your car, right on your vanity counter, and carry travel sizes with you! If you need an extra level of protection, keep healing ointments and creams on hand as well for when the weather is especially chilling.


During the busy winter months you may not feel like you have the time to really focus on protecting your skin, but it is just as important to be protecting your skin from the winter air as you would from the sun in the summer. If you’re short on time, then this dry skin treatment may be the perfect option for you! These express treatments only take 20-30 minutes, require no recovery time, and will leave your skin feeling fresh and renewed after each session. Find out more about this treatment option here.

Enjoy A Soak in the Tub

Baths have multiple benefits including relaxation and hygiene, but they are also great for hydrating your skin and renewing the moisture that is lost by being outside. You may find that your skin gets itchy in the winter and there are many great and natural additives that can go in the bath to help with this. Draw a bath with coconut oil or oats to relieve dry, itchy skin or add bath salts for an added relaxing effect. Let your skin soak and use a wash cloth to lightly exfoliate legs, arms, elbows and knees and anywhere that feels especially dry. Pat skin dry afterward and let the rest of the moisture dry naturally, if time allows.

Customized Chemical Peels

Not all dry skin treatment is equal, because everyone’s skin is different! If you aren’t sure which type of care your skin needs or are struggling to get the desired results with your at-home routine, then a customized chemical peel may be just right for you. Based on your skin type and condition, these treatments range from subtle to more intensive and are based upon your specific skin consultation. Read about the customized chemical peel process here.
