Just when you think you've got it figured out, the season changes...❄️

As the weather cools down and we enter winter, your skin's needs can change too. Winter air is drier and the humidity drops. Combine that with dry, indoor temperatures from heaters and our skin's moisture is zapped! So what can you do?

✨ Swap gel/foaming cleansers for cream/oil cleansers | You want to avoid stripping your skin of its natural oils. Instead, add moisture with these gentler options.

✨ Swap physical exfoliants for chemical exfoliants | Exfoliation is always a great addition to your skincare routine, and during the winter can be an excellent way to slough off dead skin cells and reveal a glowing complexion. However physical exfoliants can be too harsh for dry skin during the winter!

✨ Add a serum to your routine | A hydrating serum is a great idea to start incorporating regardless, but especially during the winter!

Have any questions? Schedule an appointment with our esthetics department, rejuvenate your skin, and browse our salon quality products!

Thanks to our student Riley for sharing some BT Micro action with us! This device is incredible because it uses ultrasonic exfoliating to leave skin smooth, clear, and ready to better absorb your skincare products!
