Your skin’s needs change with the seasons winter-skin-careand the right products can make a big difference in how your skin looks and feels. We know that wandering down the cosmetics aisle in the drugstore can leave you feeling confused. Do I need a toner? What product works best for sensitive skin? Don’t try to navigate the confusing world of skin care products and seasons alone. Come in to Santa Monica Laser and Skin Care Center for personalized help and advice.

We carry a wide range of top quality skin care products, specifically chosen to help your skin look its best. Our doctors choose the products we carry and we stand behind the quality of each and every one. Let us help you find the right products for your skin this winter. If you just swap one product this winter, opt for a new moisturizer (a must for winter).

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

Winter skin needs extra moisture. Swap that light summer moisturizer for something thicker and richer. Use it often. Moisturize after every shower and when your skin feels dry. This is one of the most important things you can do for your skin in the winter.

The cold air outside and the warm, heated air inside contribute to low humidity, one of the biggest reasons your skin is so dry. Dry skin is easier to prevent than to correct once it occurs.

You Still Need Sunscreen

Sunscreen isn’t just for summer. It needs to be an every season habit. Up to 80% of the sun’s rays can penetrate clouds so sunscreen’s a must even on those stormy winter days. If you’ll be in the sun for an extended period of time use at least an SPF 30. Many people don’t use enough sunscreen; you need at least a teaspoon for the face alone.

Skip Hot Showers

Hot showers are terrible for your skin. Stick with warm water instead. Overly hot water can lead to dry, irritated skin. Shorter showers are better for the skin too. Get in, wash, and get out. Don’t bathe or shower too often and make sure you use gentle products in the shower.
