Keep your skin glowing and healthy this winter season with these top 4 winter skin care tips from our Kelowna clinic.

Your skin is one of the largest organs your body has, and it works hard every day to protect your body from harmful elements, which is why taking care of your skin properly is so important.

Some of the benefits of a regular skin care routine include:

  • It will help you treat wrinkles, prevent acne and improve the clarity of your skin
  • It leads to faster cell turnover, so your skin looks and feels healthier and younger
  • Any dullness will disappear and your skin will get its glow back
  • Prevents or slows down the development of wrinkles and fine lines

4 Tips For Keeping Your Skin Glowing This Winter

Winter weather is not fun for skin. The cold weather and low humidity levels mean that moisture is stolen away from the skin, resulting in chapping, redness and itchiness. To counteract these effects and keep your appearance youthful and smooth, here are 4 skin care tips to follow this winter season:

1. Stay Hydrated

Although many people think of dehydration as a summertime problem, it can also be a concern during the cooler months. Well-hydrated skin is more plump, resilient and healthy, so this winter remember to:

  • Use a humidifier in your rooms to add moisture to the air
  • Avoid toners or skin care products that contain alcohol, as this will dry out your skin
  • Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and limit coffee, tea and sodas
  • Add good fats such as omega-3 and omega-6 and vitamin E to your diet
  • Indulge in watery foods, such as soups, and avoid dry, crunchy or salty foods as these will further dehydrate your skin.


2. Wash in Lukewarm Water

Avoid taking long, hot baths or showers and using saunas during the winter months. This is because hot water can rob the skin of its moisture, so make sure to use moderate-temperature water for shorter periods of time.

Skin Care Tip: Adding some essential oils to the water, such as jasmine, chamomile, ylang-ylang or clary sage, is a great way to keep your skin soft and moisturized. 


3. Avoid Any Allergens or Irritants

This is especially important if you have certain skin conditions such as eczema, acne or psoriasis. Remember that winter skin is more fragile, so try to avoid allergens and irritants that may trigger a flare up.

This includes:

  • Fibres such as wool, polyester and nylon
  • Chemical-laden detergents
  • Strong cleaners and moisturizers
  • Wearing too many layers of clothing or using heavy bed coverings


4. Treat Yourself to a Cosmetic Skin Treatment

With all the shopping, festivities and cooking, the long days and stress of the holidays can lead you to look more tired and run-down than you’d like. Fortunately, there are a number of minimally invasive skin care treatments that can rejuvenate your appearance, including:

At our Kelowna skin clinic, we use the advanced VISIA Digital Skin Analysis System to help create a personalized, safe and effective cosmetic treatment plan to meet all your aesthetic needs.


Acne Treatment and Skin Care in The Winter

Winter can wreak havoc on your skin, especially if you have certain conditions such as acne or rosacea. The good news? At our Kelowna skin clinic, we provide customized acne treatments including V-Beam laser and chemical peels to keep your skin clear, healthy and glowing.

Customized V-Beam Laser Treatment for Acne Breakouts

V-Beam laser is an effective, non-invasive acne treatment that can be used to shrink broken blood vessels, restore the skin’s natural skin color and prevent future breakouts. It leads to a clearer complexion by:

  • Eliminating facial redness
  • Killing acne-causing bacteria
  • Improving skin tone and texture

During a private consultation, we can asses your skin type, condition and medical history to determine whether V-Beam Laser is the right acne treatment option for you.
