As times change, we must change with them. This is definitely true when it comes to the cold winter months ahead. Your skin can really take a beating when it is left at the mercy of the colder, drier winds of winter. The good news is that most problems can be avoided when you take some simple precautions and tweak your skincare routine.
Moisturize. Moisturize. Moisturize.
Dry, cold winds have a way of stripping moisture right out of your skin, making your skin more vulnerable to becoming damaged. If your skin is not adequately protected, you may also find that your skin becomes prematurely aged.
PCA skin makes a wide range of products that includes moisturizers. The best time to use a moisturizer is after you take a shower or bath. This is when your skin is the most hydrated that it will be all day. So lock in all of that moisture with a good moisturizer that helps to protect your skin each day of winter.
Even if you currently use a moisturizer during other months, you may want to consider switching to a heavier moisturizer during winter. If you experiment a little, you should discover one that keeps your skin from drying out by the end of the day.
By undergoing a professional PCA peel, you will be exfoliating dead skin cells that cling to the surface of your skin, blocking its natural radiance. A gentle peel will remove this dead weight to reveal fresher, more youthful skin underneath. A good peel can also encourage the formation of new skin tissue and immediately brighten your complexion.
PCA peels are safe for all skin types. Your provider can determine which combination of treatments works best for you and your skin type. They will ensure that your skin is balanced before your PCA peel and nurture it afterward.
Preparing For Your Peel
One of the best ways to prepare your skin for a PCA peel is to incorporate PCA products into your daily skincare routine. If your skin is healthy and balanced, you will lower the chances of experiencing complications, and obtain superior treatment results.
But don’t stop there. It is just as important to use the correct post-treatment skincare products after your PCA peel. Your provider will examine your skin and help you find the most appropriate skin care products to support your skin after your treatment.
