How to winterize your skin

Welcoming winter weather can be daunting, but now is a great time to erase the skin damage that the summer left behind and prepare for the cold.

Heat, humidity, UVA and UVB rays are hard on your skin and can accelerate the aging process.

The best defense is exfoliation, and two optimal ways to exfoliate are through the use of light chemical peels and microdermabrasion. These treatments will smooth and refine your skin and allow for maximum moisture absorption.

After these types of treatments, your skin can drink in the moisture its been craving! For a soothing hydration treatment, try a peptide induced serum with anti aging properties (designed for your skin type) under your moisturizer. Your skin will glow!
