Before you even see a snowflake, you’ll probably know that it’s winter from the changes to your skin. When the temperature drops, the air gets dryer and the heat comes on in your home, your skin may get dry, flaky or that tight feeling, making it hard to get a smooth application of makeup and throwing off your balance of oil. It seems like the last thing you need is microdermabrasion, yet another skin treatment that is on the harsh side, but it might actually be your skin’s savior.
Many people think that the answer to dry winter skin is moisturization, which is true. However, when you apply lotion or cream to a layer of dry skin, nothing but that top layer gets the hydration, so next time you wash your face, the nourishing ingredients of your lotion are washed away, too. Products like Miracle Skin Transformer Hydroactive Microderm polish away that drab, dead outer layer of skin, which means that next time you apply cream, your face is better able to absorb the nutrients.
You don’t need to go through this ultra-exfoliation process very often during the winter, especially if you have sensitive skin, but doing it every once in awhile will help your skin get the nourishment it needs throughout the harsh winter months.
