Whether you love or hate the frosty, colder months there’s no denying that winter is not your skin’s BFF! Unless you’ve been lucky enough to jet off to warmer climes, the chances are high that your complexion is craving moisture, lacking in radiance and flaring up against your will.
In winter the air is dry and harsh, zapping that essential dew from our skin. The days are shorter and darker, and we’re missing that sunny vitamin D. Not to mention that we crank up the central heating, take hot showers, and eat sugary treats and carby comfort foods to keep us feeling cosy- all of which can take its toll on skin.
From serums to moisturisers, acids to retinol creams, there are more skincare products on the market than ever. Developing a skincare routine that really works can be confusing and frustrating, especially when it comes to switching it up between seasons. Let us make it simple for you; if you’re battling through winter with dry, dehydrated, flaky skin, dullness or general lack of ‘wow factor’ to your complexion, we’re here to help you get your glow back!
What treatment should I have to help my dry, winter skin?
At Elegant we offer a number of treatments to enhance the overall appearance and health of your skin. From in-clinic services to at-home care kits, there are plenty of options that may be the magic your pores are looking for.
We are proud to work with incredible skincare brand Zo Skin Health, developed by world renowned dermatologist Dr. Zein Obagi. The Zo Skin Health brand uses the latest technologies to create products that revolutionise prescription strength skincare, bridging the gap between therapeutic treatments and everyday at-home care.
The unique products are tailored to each skin type, condition and need, allowing us to build a bespoke skincare package to suit your own personal requirements.
Whether your issue is winter dryness, wrinkles and fine lines or a more complex skin condition, our Shikha is an expert accredited ZO skin care practitioner, who will work with you to create your new, perfect skin care routine.
What is a skin peel and why should I try it?
When it comes to skincare, we are huge advocates for the magic of a ‘skin peel’. Skin peels, or chemical peels, come in many different forms, with varying ingredients and effects to cater to a number of skin types.
Here at Elegant we offer two different kinds of peel: the ZO 3 Step Skin Peel and The Perfect Peel.
The ZO 3 Step Skin Peel is another revolutionary treatment from the guys at Zo Medical, working to repair skin texture, combat anti-ageing and correct pigmentation through exfoliation. This is a great treatment for smoothing out fine lines, stimulating collagen and restoring moisture in the skin, and has little or no downtime.
Our other fantastic peel product is The Perfect Peel, which amplifies radiance and rejuvenates complexion after just one, single treatment, followed by at-home aftercare. Not only is this a great remedy for boosting dull, winter skin, but it’s an all-year-round saviour for retaining a face that’s smooth, even, brighter and tighter.
What about Profhilo?
After offering this treatment for a while, the question that’s always on our (perfectly plumped) lips is, what is skincare without Profhilo? Our favourite wonder-treatment has been described as ‘injectable skincare’ and has been featured in Vogue as beauty’s best kept secret.
If you’re looking to level up your current winter skin regime and go the extra mile, Profhilo is the next appointment you need to be making. Performing as a hydrator rather than a filler, this amazing process will increase hydration and firmness through the slow release of hyaluronic acid. Designed to tackle tired, dull and visibly ageing skin, Profhilo is the perfect weapon for us to help you tackle the colder months with!
No matter what your skin condition is, we can talk you through a number of fabulous treatment options to have you feeling and looking radiant- come rain or shine!
