Steps for Glowing Skin this Winter
Try these tips from the UW Health Transformations Jeune Skin Care aestheticians:
Cold weather, low humidity levels, heated buildings, hormones, medications, saunas, hot tubs, whirlpools, swimming pools, caffeine and alcohol can dehydrate the skin, so drink plenty of plain water. For detoxifying benefits, add a little fresh lemon or lime juice.
Help banish dull-looking skin by sloughing off the dead skin cells. Try a physical form of exfoliation with a Clarisonic SmartPROfile brush, for 11 times deeper cleansing and mild exfoliation, or a gentle facial scrub with round jojoba beads.
Want to kick it up a notch? Try a chemical form of exfoliation with hydroxy acid (AHA/BHA) cleansers and treatment creams with glycolic acid, lactic acid and salicylic acid, Retin-A and Retinol-based products.
Better yet, treat your skin to a professional chemical peel treatment. Learn more about our Jeune Skin Care peels

We all need to moisturize - even if you have oily skin. It's a matter of choosing the correct moisturizer. A key ingredient in binding water to the skin is hyaluronic acid. It acts as a natural humectant for the skin by adding hydration to the epidermis. This key ingredient holds 1,000 times its weight in water, maximizing the benefits of any daily moisturizer. It is ideal for all skin types and can be used frequently on all parts of the body - face, neck, chest, hands, feet, elbows and other rough or dry areas needing additional hydration. Perfect for airline travel!
