Christmas is a challenging time of year for our skin.
The combination of staying in with the central heating on high, then going out into harsh weather conditions makes for dull, dry complexions.
The increase in alcohol intake and rich, sugary and fatty diet only make things worse – at the very time of year when you want to look your best.
However, winter is the best time of year to try something new for your skin.
At Home Cosmeceutical Skin Care Regimes
If you are still using supermarket or chemist brands and a cycle of cleanse, tone, moisturise, you could be surprised at the difference cosmeceuticals can make.
Cosmeceuticals are prescription skin care products which work intensively to tackle more challenging issues such as rosacea, acne and melasma. The right skin products can make a dramatic difference to everyday issues such as lines, wrinkles, skin-tone and radiance.
For a New Year change, consider ZO Skin Health. Mulberry House Clinic & Laser Centre have many clients now enjoying this range and can show before/after photos. Find out more about Prescription Skincare.
Winter is a good time for non-invasive treatments as the lack of sun exposure is beneficial to healing time.
Procedures such as laser treatments, chemical peels or microdermabrasion are very effective at perking up the skin’s appearance. They stimulate cell renewal so the effect isn’t just instant. These procedures can make newly treated skin more sensitive to the sun and a high protection sunscreen is always recommended, but in winter it’s easier to stay out of the sun’s rays while skin heals.
