The lack of rain in the Bay Area is affecting more than the foliage and water supply.  The dry weather is taking a toll on your skin, too.

The low level of moisture in the air is contributing to the already rough winter elements that dry out your skin.  To avoid further dehydrated skin, take some extra time to care for your skin this winter.  These recommendations will keep your skin hydrated and moisturized:

Dry weather effects more than the environment.
Avoid dry skin this winter

AHA Exfoliating Facial.  As we age, the skin’s process for repairing itself slows down.  Dead skin cells make up a large part of the surface and prevent moisture of reaching the new skin below.  The dry weather contributes to the buildup making it harder for your skin to shed the dead cells.  The process of exfoliating removes the buildup of dead skin giving you direct access to moisturize the living skin.  Using an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) will quickly replenish your skin with moisture and improve your skin’s texture.

Hydrating Facial. This facial best suited for those people with naturally dry skin who need additional hydration during the winter months.  Constant exposure to indoor heat will further increase the need to maintain moisture in your skin.  This hydrating facial includes a gentle peel followed by a moisturizing and toning mask.

Use the right moisturizer.  Choosing the right products for your skin type is one of the most important steps in maintaining beautifully hydrated skin.  With hundreds of products on the market, how do you know what is the right one for you?  Don’t guess; let me help you select the moisturizer that will give you the greatest benefit.  I’ll create a custom moisturizing routine that will compliment your skin’s natural product of oil and minerals.
