With the winter months approaching, the temperature is dropping, the wind is howling, and we’re cranking the heating up full blast – which all equals to bad news for your skin!
The lower air temperatures and lower humidity lead to dryer air, which causes the skin to loose moisture and become itchy. And the things we do to warm up make this dryness worse! Central heating at home and work continue to make the skin loose moisture, and those long hot baths and showers on cold winter nights can strip away the protective natural layer found in the skin, which is there to help prevent moisture loss from occurring in the first place!
Dry skin can become flakey and itchy, as the lipids that help stick skin cells together are lost, causing the cells to disintegrate and flake off. This flakiness can cause irritation, leading to itchy patches of skin. If this sounds familiar to you then keep on reading!
So what can we do to protect our skin from the perils of winter? A good moisturiser can help, but let’s consider a preventative treatment to prepare your skin for the winter months ahead. Dr Joanna of Face Clinic London recommends Restylane Skinboosters.
Restylane Skinboosters are a ground breaking skin concept. They are designed to restore deep skin hydration in dry, aged or dull looking skin. They are made up of stabilised Hyaluronic Acid – don’t be put off by the name, this is a substance that is naturally found in the skin, and keeps it naturally moisturised and healthy. Applied to the skin through a series of micro-injections they work to improve skin quality, skin tone, surface roughness and bring a natural glow to your skin. They can be used to treat the face, hands, neck, décolletage and lips, where cold air can dry the skin.
Jannine was treated by Dr Joanna, and says that: “my skin looks and feels like I’ve just applied moisturiser at all times!” – The results are clearly visible in Jannine and the effects of Skinboosters enhancing the natural deep moisture in her skin gives the skin a beautiful glow.
Another client, Maryelle decided to go for Skinboosters, and said that “I feel like I gained approximately 10 years younger, especially around the mouth”. Skinboosters are really effective treatment for those fine crepey lines around the lips. As your skins natural moisture is drawn back into the cells, the skin becomes healthier and those fine lines disappear.
A typical treatment program is made up of three visits 2 – 4 weeks apart. When the desired result is achieved, the effects can be maintained throughout the year with a simple six month treatment.
Dr Joanna says that “Skinboosters are a brand new approach to improving skin quality- everyone can benefit from a boost in deep skin hydration .”
