Ask the Doctors: DO I NEED TO CHANGE MY EXFOLIATION ROUTINE WITH THE CHANGE IN SEASONS?
You may find your skin needs extra attention and moisture during the harsh winter months or in dry climates. Follow the tips below to help promote cell turnover and keep your skin moisturized:
Exfoliate to prepare the skin. Proper exfoliation removes the dulling dry skin cells that create a barrier to your moisturizer while helping younger, more vibrant cells rise to the surface. Try ENHANCEMENTS Micro-Dermabrasion Paste, a salt and sugar combination in a high-glide, oil-free formula designed to promote gentle exfoliation for brighter-looking skin. Use the paste intermittently to buff off dead cells and improve skin tone and texture. This is truly my "I can't live without" product.
Hydrate skin from the outside in. As the weather gets crisper and drier, you may want to add a more emollient moisturizer to your Regimen, like SOOTHE Moisture Replenishing Cream, along with REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream, to keep skin well hydrated. The humidity levels outside determine how dry your skin is—not how much water you consume—so apply moisturizer if you’re feeling dry. In your home, crank up a humidifier to keep humidity levels at an ideal 50 percent. Of course, PM or e-mail me with all of your questions!
