Winter is here and with that comes the frigid air from outdoor elements and dry air from any kind of indoor heat. Each of these factors can cause your skin to become very parched. This leads to the cracking of your skin’s protective barrier, making it less able to repair itself. It becomes a vicious oxidation cycle unless you do something to prevent it or treat it fast.
Today’s topical hydrators go far beyond the 1, 2, 3 of moisturizers: light, medium, and heavy. From an aesthetic standpoint, dehydration compromises cellular functioning, resulting in a dull appearance, increased sensitivity, and early signs of aging.
Skinmedica is a medical grade skincare line that has been meticulously researched and offers amazing product formulations. Among these are two must-haves for the winter: AHA/BHA exfoliating cleanser and the HA5 hydrator. The AHA/BHA exfoliating cleanser has naturally derived alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids combined with jojoba spheres that together form a perfect cleanser that thoroughly cleanses and gently exfoliates the skin. The HA5, on other hand, will be the best way to replenish your skin with proper hydrators. It is the first rejuvenating hydrator that supports the overall epidermal health. Unlike other serums, HA5 is powered by potent antioxidants found in vitis ﬂower, stem cells, and algae extracts to support the skin’s ability to replenish it’s owns hyaluronic acid for optimal epidermal health.
