Winter has officially arrived in Hawaii believe it or not. With colder temperatures, it can lead to Itchy dry skin, tightness and flakiness. These are often not results for a radiant, hydrated complexion, but here are some of our skincare tips to keep you glowing in the cooler months ahead.

BOOK A HYDRAFACIAL AT HONOLULU MEDSPA

A fan favorite! This serum-based, gentle, and exfoliating treatment revolutionizes traditional microdermabrasion, makes your pores appear smaller, and leaves your skin feeling baby soft and silky smooth. For those who need additional hydration, we do offer hyperbaric oxygen infusion to help restore and balance the skin.

EXFOLIATING

Exfoliating is the key to brighter skin! It sloughs off the dead skin and helps remove the flakiness. Your moisturizer will even penetrate deeper into the skin. The key for exfoliating is using an exfoliator with microbeads that are gentle.

USE A CREAM, OR GENTLE FACIAL CLEANSER

We offer physician dispensed skincare at Honolulu MedSpa and are available to talk skin with you if you need a little guidance. Some of the traditional “exfoliating” cleansers might leave your skin dry and tight during the winter months. Some of our favorites include cleansers from both SkinMedica and SkinCeuticals.

CHANGE YOUR MOISTURIZER

During the summer months, using a lighter moisturizer is definitely a must. But, as soon as the temperature drops, you want to use a heavier moisturizer that is the right one for your skin type. This is crucial in your winter skincare regimen.

ADD A SERUM

Using a serum am/pm with your daily moisturizer can be a huge game changer in the way your skin looks. It’s lightweight and the high concentration of powerful ingredients penetrates deeply into the skin. This is great for targeting specific skincare concerns.

WEAR SPF

Even if it’s cloudy or raining, UV light is always present and will cause irreversible damage if it’s not protected against. Always wear a minimum of SPF 30 to fully protect against premature aging, pigmentation, sunburn and dark spots.

PROTECT YOUR LIPS

Having chapped lips is a huge sign of ultra dryness. Invest in a good lip treatment that will keep your lips hydrated and plump year round.
