Filled with parties, people and presents, the holidays are a time to reconnect with people we haven’t seen since last year’s holiday season—or even longer. That’s especially true this year, as world events have kept many of us from last year’s traditional holiday celebrations. It’s only natural to want to look and feel your best, and one of the easiest ways to do that is with a skincare overhaul.
What are the best skin products for my face and for the winter?
One of the secrets to great skin is switching out your skincare products seasonally. Just as summer’s scorching temperatures call for a lightweight moisturizer, winter’s chilly ones call for something more nourishing and moisturizing, like Youth Intensive Creme from iS Clinical. Providing skin-quenching and protective 24-hour hydration, this rich formula helps to visibly plump and smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles over time. It’s an amazing option to counteract the effect of drying winter weather that can leave skin looking sallow and drawn.
Switching out your cleanser from a traditional foaming and skin-stripping formula to a more gentle and soothing one will also make a big difference in your skin. iS Clinical’s Warming Honey Cleanser leaves skin ultra-hydrated and moisturized, while still refining and balancing problematic skin types.
For those with dry or dehydrated skin, the key to preventing winter from exasperating your already parched complexion is layers of hydration. Adding a light moisturizer under your richer cream is a game changer. We love Reparative Moisture Emulsion from iS Clinical for this. It not only soothes and hydrates, it also helps protect skin from environmental aggressors with Extremozyme® technology. Oily skin types can also use this as their stand-alone moisturizer in the morning (it wears beautifly under makeup!)
While proper skincare can and does make a huge difference in your complexion, devices can supercharge your results and take your skin to the next level. One of the best options out there is an FDA-cleared device called LightStim. Red light therapy is a key therapeutic treatment for inflammation that works by penetrating the body at the cellular level with specific wavelengths of light, reducing swelling and supporting tissue repair and regeneration. LightStim in particular, combines this therapeutic light energy with patented technology as an inflammation after surgery treatment in an easy-to-use, at home device. It accelerates the body’s recovery process by increasing circulation and is even FDA cleared to relieve pain. Now, you may be wondering why we’re recommending something for healing and inflammation when we’re talking about skincare. Here’s why: all skin woes—from acne to scars, to wrinkles and even dryness are a result of damage to the skin. And where there’s damage, there needs healing.
