Dry Skin: Give it special love

Yes, your skin can still be dry and flaky even as the weather warms up and is more humid. If you have dry skin, it might be caused by genetics or environmental factors. But regardless of the cause, it can easily get irritated and may be difficult to maintain. The solution is to follow a consistent skin care routine designed for your particular issues, allowing you to love your skin even if it tends to be dry.

A good morning routine

Start your day by protecting your skin, as well as preventing potential problems. This means using gentle cleansers, moisturizing products and, of course, sunscreen! Layer your products so that your serum is applied first, then moisturizer, and finally sunscreen. If I’ve prescribed medication for you, make sure you apply it in the correct order!

A good evening routine

In the evening, you’ll want to repair your skin from any damage brought about during the day. Your key goals should be to soothe, heal, and hydrate your dry skin. Don’t skip cleansing and, of course, no need for sunscreen at night! Use warm water with a gentle cleanser to avoid stripping moisture. Apply your serum and moisturizer. If you wear makeup, always remove it before your evening skin care routine. Never sleep in makeup.

A few other good ideas for your skin

  • Stay hydrated — Water is your friend. Make sure you drink plenty of it to keep the whole body hydrated and your skin happy.
  • Protect your skin — Rain or shine, sunny or cloudy, in daylight hours, always wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least 30 SPF. 
  • Climate matters — Low humidity and wind can strip your skin of much needed moisture. Wear protective clothing and apply moisturizer often. 
  • Benefit from an aesthetic treatment — We offer several aesthetic treatments that are customized for all skin types including, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and HydraFacial.
