The winter brings cold temperatures and low humidity levels. The dry wintery weather results in dry skin because the moisture is pulled away from our skin. If you don’t combat the effects of harsh winter winds and dry indoor heat your skin can be compromised.
In some cases the skin becomes so fragile that you can experience cracked and even bleeding skin. The best skin care routine for your skin is not only important to keep the skin supple, but it is also important to keep it healthy.

Keeping your skin hydrated and healthy in the winter is no easy task. If you want the best for your skin, consider using medical grade products like the ones I mentioned above. Keeping the skin hydrated isn’t just about lathering on hydrating products, but it's also essential to build up skin’s resilience. At home care with these products is vital, but it may also be important to come in for regular facials/hydrafacials or chemical peels.
