Colder weather is in the forecast!  When the temperatures drop, many of us start to notice our skin getting dryer.  As the seasons change, so should your skin care regimen.  Are you wondering what you should be doing differently?  At the end of 2016, we handed out the following products to our top referring patients and we are starting to get great feedback.  We suggest you try some of the following tips to have beautiful skin this winter.

Moisturizers are your best friend

Moisturizers help to protect and restore the external barriers of your skin.  We recommend trying Triple Lipid by SkinCeuticals.  We love this moisturizer because of its anti-aging correction and nourishment.  This product is perfect for winter months because of its thicker consistency and is truly radiance rediscovered.


CE Ferulic is a combination of Vitamin C & E that helps prevent premature collagen breakdown that can be caused by damaging free radicals in the winter.  It also replenishes lipids to diminish the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles.  This product provides 8x the skin’s natural environmental protection and is ideal for dry cold climates.  CE Ferulic is a must have treat for your winter skin!


Most of us have heard of Retinol, but haven’t heard how it works.  Retinol helps stimulate cell turnover which in turn will help with fine lines, age spots, blemishes, and blotchiness.  This product can make your skin flaky or dry at first, so we definitely suggest pairing it with the Triple Lipid moisturizer.  Retinol is great for all ages and comes in different strengths for your skin type.  We suggest to start out using this product 1-2 times per week and gradually increase use as tolerated.



You still need sunscreen!  Ultraviolet rays are present all year round and can even penetrate clouds and windows.  We love Essential Defense sunscreen by SkinMedica because it has both UVA and UVB protection.  It even comes tinted for us low maintenance women!  I personally like to double up and wear it as a base under my foundation.  The best part about this product is you can earn Brilliant Distinction points!

Check out this low maintenance regimen that will leave your skin feeling fabulous!
