How a HydraFacial Can Enhance Your Wintertime Complexion
If you’re already dreading what the cold weather will do to your skin, HydraFacials® are a fantastic option for chasing away the wintertime blues of a dull, listless complexion and for creating a hydrated, radiant glow.

The winter months are rolling in, and though rosy cheeks and bright eyes are a benefit of the cold, you might experience some issues with your complexion. In fact, dry skin is one of the most common wintertime complaints heard by dermatologists and aestheticians alike. 

So, what’s the solution? We at Woodlands Aesthetics Center recommend a monthly HydraFacial®Ashley Cook, WHNP-BC — as well as the rest of our providers — can help you maintain the radiant summer skin you know and love, even in the depths of winter.

Keeping your skin moisturized through the winter 

Winter can be a difficult time to maintain moisturized skin. The change in temperature as well as the heat indoors, low humidity, and wind chill all work to dry out your skin. You may feel that everything you do for your summer skin care routine isn’t enough during the colder months.

Even if you don’t notice dryness, there are other problems winter skin can cause. Impurities and dead skin cells often build up during this time, which can create problems down the road or simply cause you to feel your skin is duller than it was during the summer months. 

Fortunately, HydraFacials can help with all the issues caused by winter weather changes and enhance your complexion, creating a cold weather glow you’ll want to see all year long. 

HydraFacials 101

You may be wondering what a HydraFacial is. Sometimes called hydradermabrasion, a HydraFacial is a procedure similar to microdermabrasion, but it takes the treatment to the next level. 

HydraFacials combine the best of many different facial treatment techniques, such as chemical peels, exfoliating the skin, extracting unwanted impurities, and providing deep tissue hydration for a beautiful, all-over glow. 

What’s more, HydraFacials can be tailored to your specific needs, and our providers can help you find products that will suit your skin care goals and prolong the effects of the treatment itself. All in all, this treatment allows you to elevate your skin’s natural beauty while also protecting its overall wellness. 

How HydraFacials work on winter skin

Cleansing skin 

The first thing a HydraFacial does is cleanse the skin, which can be extremely helpful during the winter. Sometimes, people allow their skin care routines to slack a bit during the colder months, and a HydraFacial can help tremendously to correct this. 

Clearing away dead skin

Some people notice their skin looking duller in the winter, which is normally caused by a buildup of dead skin on the surface. With a combination of exfoliation and chemical peel, HydraFacials help to remove the dead skin cells. 

During the summer, this type of treatment requires careful aftercare because of the long, hot days. But protecting your post-treatment skin from the sun is often easier in the winter when you’re already predisposed to being inside and bundled up. 

Providing moisture 

Low humidity and time spent indoors with the heater on tends to suck out all the moisture in your skin. Even if you’re outside, the cold air and windy days can add to this problem. But HydraFacials help reintroduce much-needed moisture into the skin.

Time to rejuvenate your winter skin

Whether for a holiday party, a trip back home, or just to feel your best during the darkest months, it’s time to consider the well-rounded HydraFacial for rejuvenating and maintaining clear, hydrated winter skin.
