Perhaps it is feeling dryer, a little rougher to touch or your see flaky patches on your face or body.



In all actuality your skin sheds itself every 3-4 weeks, this is called “cell turnover” and when the Seasons change your skin care routine needs to change with it. If you live in climate without a lot of moisture-which is the case in the Okanagan-then you need to use a “good moisturizer” (specific for your face or body) and drink plenty of water to keep your skin supple and hydrated. Be careful…a heavier cream may reverse what you are trying to accomplish and clog your pores (your Skin Care Therapist can assist you with choosing the appropriate product). This is the first step to taking care of your skin.

The second step? Go see your Professional Esthetician for an “active” Facial, like a Peel, Laser, something with Glycolic/A.H.A’s in it. Not only will your Esthetician remove all of your blackheads (blocked pores) but she/he will also educate you about your skin. Every facial skin type is different and goes through many stages in the course of a year, this is why it is in your best interest to go for a facial 3-4 times a year.

You may need to switch out or change your skin care regimen at home. DON’T go for a facial and leave without skin care product-you may as well have just thrown your money out the window. To maintain and continue these results at home you must invest in Professional skin care products. A cleanser, toner, exfoiliant and moisturizer is a great place to start.

The last step? Eat a balanced diet, drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, wear sunscreen, get plenty of rest and book your next Facial.
