Winter Skin Rescue
There are so many external elements that winter throws at us that can affect the look and feel of our skin. Now that the days are getting colder and shorter our skin starts to suffer the effects of us cranking up the central heating and extreme temperature changes, not to mention the cold drying winds that wreak havoc with our delicate Scottish skin.
We're talking face and body here too. The skin is the largest organ of the body and needs a little extra TLC in the winter months. It's not good enough to just wrap up and forget about it. Anyone heard of tartan legs - well we've got lots of skincare advice to avoid that not so attractive look too!
So with all this in mind, we start with the top 3 essentials for great looking skin this winter -
- Water - drinking plenty of simple water will help keep you hydrated - it will also fill you up and stop you from indulging in those comfort snacks that we all crave once the sun goes down.
- Exfoliate - both face and body will look so much better if you exfoliate twice a week. Exfoliation removes the dead skin cells from the top layer of the epidermis, allowing for the next essential stage to do its work - Moisturisation. It also improves circulation and plumps up skin cells for a smooth hydrated appearance.
- Moisturise - we can't stress enough the importance of moisturising. Our product of choice at Spa Uniq is oil - infused with the essential oils and lipids for an extra moisture boost. The smaller molecular structure of oil means that more product is able to penetrate your skin just where you need it, keeping your skin hydrated with a healthy dewy glow.
So what are you waiting for? Book in for a winter consultation and we'll give you the lowdown on how to look and feel great this winter!
