Three Tips for Beautiful Skin this Winter in St. Louis

rps-skincare-image How is your skin handling the winter weather here in St. Louis? It is no secret that winter weather can wreak havoc on an otherwise healthy complexion. Don’t fret! Renaissance Plastic Surgery has put together a list of three tips to keep your skin healthy and beautiful this winter.

Use Sunscreen

Don’t be fooled by the overcast skies! Just because the sun is not out as much in the winter does not mean it cannot affect and damage your skin. Make sure your skin is protected by wearing sunscreen year-round. Expert tip! Look for makeup—like Jane Iredale® Makeup—that also has SPF protection. Available at our St. Louis practice, Jane Iredale’s line of mineral makeup is the perfect way to incorporate SPF into your daily routine.

Stay Hydrated

Winter weather is synonymous with dry skin. When it’s cold outside, our skin struggles to stay hydrated as there is less moisture in the air for our skin to absorb. Even if you consistently hydrate your skin, you may find that your skin still lacks the deep hydration it needs. In office treatments at Renaissance Plastic Surgery’s R Medical Spa can deliver results that you cannot achieve at home. Our Oxygen Facial nourishes dehydrated skin by introducing an infusion of oxygen, minerals, and vitamins including vitamins A, C and E to hydrate and protect your skin from harsh elements that winter brings.

Exfoliate

Built up damaged and dead skin cells can dull your complexion and work against a healthy and luminous glow. As cellular turnover slows during the winter season, it is important to kick-start your skin’s renewal through manual exfoliation. A patient favorite all year long, microdermabrasion is especially popular during the winter months. At R Medial Spa, we utilize a diamond-tipped wand to exfoliate and buff away the outermost layer of skin. Utilizing a vacuum-like technology, the wand gently suctions up dead cells as it is passed over your skin. After microdermabrasion, your skin will be soft, smooth and supple with reduced winter related congestion, fine lines, and dry, flaky skin. With no downtime and glowing results, microdermabrasion is the perfect treatment to get your ready for the holiday season ahead. Don’t let your skin fall victim to the winter weather. Take care of your skin at Renaissance Plastic Surgery. Get your glow back by scheduling your one-on-one consultation at our St. Peters practice.
