Although Coco Med Spa is located in St.Pete and our weather doesn’t fluctuate as much as some areas, we are still feeling the effects of winter’s weather on our skin. No matter where you are in the world, it’s a good idea to have a winter skincare routine that is specific to the needs that cooler weather can bring. We’ve compiled some of our best tips for you to adopt into your own routine. You’re welcome in advance!
Hydrate, Hydrate Hydrate
No winter skincare regimen will be complete without total skin hydration. Drinking water isn’t just a tip for good brain function or a dieting hack, it’s also essential for healthy and hydrated skin! In addition to internal hydration, it is also important to adjust topical hydration through our skincare products. We lose water through our skin every day and in the winter things like lower humidity, heaters running all around us, and cooler temps all speed up moisture loss. Our Hydrate and Nourish Facial is just one of our in spa facial treatments that will help to further boost hydration in the skin.
Peel it Off
Cooler temps are a great opportunity to schedule a chemical peel. The sun should be avoided after a chemical peel and cooler weather tends to keep us indoors more often, making it the best time to let your skin renew and recover. A chemical peel can help to remove or reduce hyper pigmentation, scarring, texture, and uneven skin tone. It also deeply exfoliates allowing for better penetration of any hydrating treatments or products.
Up Your Game At Home
A new season is always a good time to change up some of your skincare products. At Coco Med Spa we offer several medical grade skincare lines with lots of options for deep hydration. Adding a hydrating serum or upgrading to a cream moisturizer from a gel moisturizer can help to keep your skin from drying out as temperatures shift.
We are always happy to consult with you about best practices for your skin. Contact us today to book an appointment for a hydrating treatment, chemical peel, or to stop by and pick up some products!
