With the onset of cooler weather and sometimes harsh
temperatures, comes the "winter blues" of our skin. Typically, the skin
becomes drier and taut during these cooler months. It can also make
us appear to be older, accentuating any fine lines that we have in our
Some good remedies for this are available in our office. Switching to a
richer, more emollient daily moisturizer and night cream is a good
combatant to the harsh skin changes brought on by the winter months. At
our Pittsburgh , PA, Skin Care Center we have some wonderful
moisturizers that are high in antioxidants.
Another good thing to do for our skin is to add a hydrating mask. These
help to give our face a long, cool drink of water. We have these in a
variety of yummy flavors from coconut to mango!! Why, just smelling
them will make you smile. These can be used 2-3 times per week.
Another problem solver for dry skin is to get a monthly micropeel for
the face. These peels exfoliate the dead skin cells on the skin's
surface, allowing the skin to breathe and absorb the moisturizers and
masks. This will plump up your face diminishing the fine lines
that were more noticeable from the dryness. These light "lunchtime"
peels are done by a licensed aesthetician in our comfortable office.
We look forward to meeting your skincare needs at our
