Our Winter Skincare Tips!

Taking care of your skin is always important, but during the winter months, it becomes even more crucial. The cold, dry air can sap the moisture from your skin, leaving it dry and itchy. Plus, the harsh weather conditions can cause redness, chapping, and other skin irritations. Therefore, it is essential to take extra care of your skin during winter by receiving the right skin treatments, using evolveMD for your at home skincare and following a routine that keeps your skin hydrated and protected.

Regular skin treatments at Evolution Laser Clinic during the cooler months can provide numerous benefits to your skin. First and foremost, they can help to hydrate dry and dull skin, which is common during this season. Skin treatments can also help to exfoliate dead skin cells, promote circulation, and improve skin texture and tone. Additionally, they can aid in reducing the appearance of fine lines as well as reducing the visibility of pigmentation. Overall, regular skin treatments at Evolution Laser Clinic can help to maintain healthy, glowing skin throughout the colder months. This time of year can also be most beneficial to treat our skin before the warmer months as our skin is less likely to have had recent excessive sun exposure. We break down our most popular skin treatments and evolveMD products to get your skin through this winter season!

Our recommended skin treatments for your skin

Chemical Peels -

Exfoliating your skin during winter is important for several reasons. Firstly, the cold weather can cause dry and flaky skin. By removing the dead skin cells through exfoliation, your skin will be smoother and more hydrated. Secondly, exfoliating can help stimulate blood flow and promote cell turnover, which can improve the overall appearance of your skin. Finally, exfoliating can help enhance the effectiveness of your evolveMD skin care products, allowing them to penetrate deeper into the skin. So, if you want healthy, hydrated and glowing skin during winter, make sure to book your chemical peel appointment at Evolution Laser Clinic.

Skin Needling -

Skin needling is crucial during the winter months when our skin is exposed to harsh weather conditions. The cold, dry air during winter can cause dehydration and make our skin appear dull and flaky. Our state-of-the-art micro-needling device used in our skin needling treatment can help stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which is essential for maintaining healthy and youthful-looking skin. By boosting collagen and elastin levels, these treatments can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. Additionally, the induction of these proteins can improve skin texture and firmness, giving your skin a more radiant and refreshed appearance.This treatment also involves the infusion of a hydrating serum which increases product absorption by 80%. Overall, investing in regular skin needling treatments at Evolution Laser Clinic during the winter months can help keep your skin looking and feeling its best despite the harsh weather.

The infusion of our evolveMD serums into your skin during winter can provide numerous benefits. The cold and dry air during this season can lead to dull and dehydrated skin. Our evolveMD serums are packed with potent ingredients that can deeply hydrate your skin and boost its radiance. They can also help to repair and protect your skin from environmental stressors, such as pollution and harsh weather conditions. Additionally, the infusion of our serums through derma stamping can target specific skin concerns, such as fine lines, texture and acne, making it a versatile addition to your winter skincare routine.

Our recommended evolveMD products for Winter

evolveMD Advanced Hydrating Serum -

Hyaluronic Acid - This powerful serum contains a high concentration of medical grade Hyaluronic acid, which dramatically boosts the skin’s hydration levels and helps maintain skin elasticity. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that plays a crucial role in keeping our skin healthy. It is a type of molecule that helps to maintain the structural integrity of tissues. Hyaluronic acid is found in high concentrations in the skin, where it helps to retain moisture and keep the skin hydrated and plump.

Vitamin B5/D-Panthenol - Another key ingredient in our Advanced Hydrating Serum is D-Panthenol. This ingredient is a derivative of vitamin B5 and is known for its ability to deeply moisturise and nourish the skin. D-Panthenol is also believed to have anti-inflammatory properties and can help soothe irritated skin. Additionally, it is often used in wound healing formulations due to its ability to promote skin regeneration. Overall, D-Panthenol is a versatile ingredient that offers many benefits for personal care products.

evolveMD Ultra Nourishing Moisturiser -

Rosehip Oil - This ingredient is a popular choice for dry skin due to its high concentration of essential fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants helping to nourish and protect the skin from the harsh weather conditions. When applied on the skin, it can help to reduce inflammation, hydrate and improve its overall texture and appearance.

Organic Jojoba - This particular element of the evolveMD Ultra Nourishing Moisturiser is a great choice for combating dry skin during the winter months. It’s composition is similar to that of natural oils produced by the skin, making it an effective moisturiser without leaving a greasy residue. Jojoba oil is rich in antioxidants and essential fatty acids, making it a nourishing choice for all skin types.

evolveMD UV Sun Protect -

Zinc Oxide - Zinc oxide is a common active ingredient in sunscreens due to its effectiveness in protecting the skin from harmful UV rays. The compound works by forming a physical barrier on the skin's surface that reflects and scatters the UV radiation away from the skin. Additionally, zinc oxide is a broad-spectrum sunscreen, meaning it can protect against both UVA and UVB rays. This makes it an ideal choice for individuals looking for comprehensive sun protection. Furthermore, zinc oxide is generally well-tolerated by most skin types, including those with sensitive skin, making it a versatile option for all skin types.

It is common to believe that sunscreen is only needed when you are outside in the shining sun. However, UV rays have the ability to penetrate most clouds. Some clouds can even intensify this due to the reflection off the clouds; you may have noticed or wondered why your skin burned after an overcast day. Therefore it is crucial for you to apply your sunscreen especially in winter.
