Prepare Your Skin for WinterPosted on Friday, December 2nd, 2016 by Douglas M. Stevens, MD
Florida winters brings dryer weather requiring increased efforts to protect and hydrate the skin. Fortunately, we have excellent products to do just that! Our Hydrating serum, Age Defense Vitamin C serum, and fabulous moisturizers will keep your skin healthy with a youthful glowing appearance. Let’s talk in some detail about these products.
Our Hydrating serum contains hyaluronic acid which is like a drink of water for your skin. It provides moisture retention lasting the entire day making the skin look brighter and firmer through hydration.
Our Vitamin C serum has an amazing amount of active anti-oxidants that penetrate the skin and support healthy collagen by fighting free radicals. In addition to helping the appearance of the skin, the form of Vitamin C found in our serum has been shown to protect against photo-aging and damage, reducing the risk of skin cancer. It improves skin texture and tone.
Don’t forget sunscreen! During the winter, the sun is still quite strong here in Southwest Florida, and even if there are clouds, your skin is still picking up ultra-violet radiation. Protect yourself from the sun with our physical and chemical sunscreens. I recommend at least 30-50 SPF applied every 2 hours (every hour and half if you are working outside and sweating). Don’t forget to apply to your hands and ears, and wear a hat to protect your scalp.
Let’s all work hard to keep our skin looking and feeling great this winter!
