Help Your Skin Glow This Holiday Season
Advice from our Jeune Skin Care aestheticians:
It’s holiday time! Use these tips from UW Health Jeune Skin Care to make your skin glow for all your holiday gatherings.
Cold weather, low humidity levels, heated buildings, hormones, medications, saunas, hot tubs, swimming pools, caffeine, alcohol and so much more can dehydrate your skin, so drink plenty of plain water. For detoxifying benefits add fresh lemon or lime juice. Your liver will love it!
Help banish dull-looking skin by sloughing off the dead skin cells. Try a 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.

We all need to moisturize - even individuals with oily skin. It's a matter of choosing the right 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. And it’s perfect for airline travel!
