Winter is not a girl’s best friend, which is why giving your skin a little extra TLC is essential. Here are 10 tips we recommend to help you get a radiant winter’s glow:

1. Wash with lukewarm water as this will avoid the stripping of your natural oils.
2. Moisturize immediately after bathing. It needs this especially after washing up.
3. Choose the right moisturizer - one that is nourishing and doesn’t have petroleum based ingredients (which can further dry your skin in winter).
4. Install a humidifier in your home to put even more moisture back into your skin while you’re sleeping.
5. Drink more water instead of hot cocoa because your skin needs extra hydration from the inside, out.
6. Exfoliate to eliminate dead cells, especially on our hands. Find an exfoliating mask you can use on both your hands and face and moisturize immediately afterwards.
7. Switch up your cleanser for a more hydrating version that contains moisturizing ingredients.
8. Eat foods high in water. Winter makes us want to turn to comfort foods, but opting for apples, oranges, tomatoes, and zucchini can support the healthy production of collagen and elastin.
9. Avoid toxins and irritants such as wool and chemical-laden detergents, which can bother sensitive skin.
10. Try making a DIY hydrating mask using ingredients such as avocado, honey, yogurt, olive, and jojoba oil.

Don’t forget to pamper yourself with one of Tropicalaser’s organic hydrating facials! All signs of roughness and  winter dryness will be smoothed away to leave a polished and glowing complexion. We service Garden City, Great Neck, and surrounding areas. Give us a call at (516) 307-1543 to schedule your FREE consultation with an experienced Tropicalaser practitioner.

Let’s just admit it: winter isn’t our skin’s best friend. 

By now, you might be happy that  your air isn’t frizzing up, but what about your skin? For most of us, winter means cracked hands, scaly legs, and dry cheeks. What you need to combat the lack of moisture is a new beauty routine. Grab these 7 basic skin care products to help you feel better in your skin:

1. Moisturizer: You will need to moisturize - a lot more than you did over the summer. First, find out your specific skin type, whether you’re dry or oily/dry combination.Apply within a few minutes of bathing to help trap the moisture. 

2. Vaseline: Vaseline will be your new best friend. This petroleum jelly-based product can be used for anything from a lip balm to a foot cream. It also moistens your feed, elbows, and knees.

3. Aquaphor: Aquaphor isn’t much different than Vaseline. It’s like your secret ingredient to skin care therapy, especially for dry under-eye patches. 

4. Humidifier: A humidifier might take up more space in your bedroom, but for what it’s worth, a humidifier can hyper-hydrate your skin while you sleep and prevent that pesky, itchy outer layer. 

5. Warm Water: Taking a hot shower is tempting when the temps outside are freezing, but before you turn that handle, let’s get one fact straight: hot water removes the natural oils from your skin, removing natural oils and making your skin even more dry. If you’re willing to sacrifice your beautiful, healthy skin go for hot, but if you’re looking to avoid looking scaly, then warm water it is!

6. Cream Cleanser: Just before bed and in the morning, you’ll need a creamy cleanser to moisturize the skin, remove your makeup, and avoid irritating your skin at the same time. 

7. Toothbrush: A toothbrush will be your guide to soft, luscious lips this winter. Why? Because scraping off excess skin with bristles is a friendly cure for your chapped lips.

Looking for more winter skincare tips and treatments? Turn to Tropicalaser.  We offer a wide variety of facials such as our Pear & Poppy Seed Polishing Facial, designed to return clarify and luminosity to the skin as dead cells are exfoliated. In the end, all signs of roughness and dryness will be smoothed away to leave a polished and glowing complexion. We service Garden City, Great Neck, and surrounding areas. Give us a call at (516) 307-1543 to schedule your FREE consultation with an experienced Tropicalaser practitioner.
