Winter Facials and skin peels, at Red Lotus skin care in Portland, are a great remedy, but there are some tips to think about. Sometimes during the fall and winter months with the weather changing, it can make our skin feel tight and dry. The first thing is to always make sure you are getting enough water, we recommend 10-12 glasses per day. Second is to look for moisturizers containing glycerin, sorbitol, and alpha hyrdoxy acids. Jessica, an esthetician at Red Lotus, battles dry skin daily and recommends silkcoat balm by PCA skin. Third, make sure you are still wearing your suncreen! Winter sun combined with potential snow glare can cause sunburns so apply sunscreen to your face and any other skin that is exposed, such as your hands. Lastly, cut your hot showers short or lower the temp. Hot water breaks down the lipid barriers in the skin which can make your skin lose moisture. Now that you have these tips under wraps come in to Red Lotus salon for a facial or skin peel.
