Wondering how to maximize your skin care routine? Worry s(no)w more! Here are Kalon’s five tips on maintaining your glow during the dark days of winter:

1. Wear sunscreen

Cold weather does not impact UV rays, so applying an SPF in the winter is still important. Snow can also reflect the sun’s rays. Be sure to protect anything exposed to the sun, especially your face, neck, and hands.

Alyssa Letcher, PA-C, loves using Revision’s Intellishade. “I rave about this one all the time. It is tinted, moisturizing, and has an SPF of 46.”

2. Exfoliate—less

Flaking, cracking, and even eczema often become problematic during the winter. Additional exfoliation can exacerbate skin dryness.

“The skin has a natural lipid barrier,” Kayce Hansen, Licensed Aesthetician, says. “When you exfoliate more than three times per week, you’re stripping your skin of its natural moisture and defense against dry skin.”

Kacye recommends exfoliating three times per week to achieve best results.

3. Use a hydrating cleanser

Hydration is key for surviving a South Dakota winter. One exciting part of the winter season is the opportunity to try new products! Opt for gentle cream-based cleansers, like Coconut Milk Cleanser by Éminence Organics. Take care to avoid toners, astringents, and products that may contain alcohol as these may further dry your skin.

Kayce likes to use Éminence’s Stone Crop Hydrating Mist throughout the day. “The hydrating mist keeps my face from appearing dry,” Kayce says. “You can also spray it over makeup!”

4. Moisturize

Show your hands, lips, and face a little extra love during the winter. Chapped lips affect just about everyone in the winter, but you can stay ahead of the dryness by always carrying a lip balm.

Hands also tend to get neglected in the winter, and cracked hands can emphasize signs of aging. Keep a generous supply of hand creams and chapsticks readily available to combat dryness. Place them in familiar spots–like your car, home, and purse–and apply regularly!

5. Start from within

The outside world may be cold and barren right now, but that doesn’t mean your diet has to be! Stock up on leafy greens and natural fats to get a healthy glow. Kale, avocado, and fish all provide essential nutrients. Though you should maintain a balanced diet year-round, pay extra attention to providing your body with foods that support healthy and moisturized skin during winter.

For Everyone

For skincare, one vitamin stands out: vitamin C. Vitamin C does more than just keep your immune system healthy. This super-vitamin works hard to brighten your complexion and even-out your skin tone while diminishing the appearance of wrinkles.

Benefits of vitamin C

Vitamin C’s most important benefit may be its ability to protect against free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can cause damage to cells. Simply put, free radicals accelerate the skin aging process. Vitamin C keeps your skin looking young and healthy by neutralizing free radicals.

As a topical treatment, vitamin C encourages skin to heal itself by producing collagen and elastin at an accelerated rate. Both collagen and elastin are important for maintaining the firmness of skin. Vitamin C can help prevent aging of the skin by facilitating extra collagen production.

How to find the right vitamin C product for you

During your next visit, ask about our vitamin C products and we’ll recommend the best option for your skin. 

Currently, Kalon carries the following vitamin C products: 

How to achieve the best results

For the best results, apply your vitamin C product underneath your daily moisturizer in the morning and at night. Use only a few drops during application, since the serums can often be potent.

It’s as easy as 1-2-3, A-B-vitamin C. With daily application, you’ll be c-ing great results in no time!
