It’s true that the sun plays a major part in causing wrinkles and accelerated aging, but winter can often be just as much to blame!
Did you know that the cooler air can actually dry out your skin by causing natural moisture to evaporate? The cooled, chilled air not only dries out the skin, but also causes your complexion to feel rougher! At Victoria’s Cosmedi Spa in Launceston, we have compiled some of the most effective ways to ensure your skin stays smooth, beautiful and youthful this winter!
1. Pinpoint the cause of your dry skin
Humidity is something Australians live with every day; however during winter humidity tends to drop dramatically. When humidity drops, the skin is unable to retain as much water, which results in dry skin that is prone to cracking. By knowing the cause of your dry skin, you can work more actively to stop it from occurring.
2. Preempt winter’s cold hands and take steps to stop its grip on your skin
When you have a shower in winter, we usually want it to be very warm and steamy – this is great for the skin as the steam adds extra moisture to the skin and leaves your pores more open in order to breathe properly and gain a more effective clean. Once you are out of the hot shower, smooth on some moisturiser while your skin is still damp; this will help to trap in extra water to prevent your skin from drying out during the day.
3. Protect your skin from the sun
When you are outside in the cool winter air, be sure to cover your skin by wearing hats, scarves and even gloves. This will shield your skin from the harsh cold air as well as the sun, which even if it does not feel as if you are being affected the sun’s UV rays can still cause significant damage to the skin and cause wrinkles!
4. Visit Victoria’s Cosmedi Spa for an assessment…
If you are unhappy with the overall look of your skin due to wrinkles or other signs of aging, at our Launceston clinic we are able to effectively assess your condition and recommend the best treatment option for you. Our anti-aging treatments use several small injections that relax the facial muscles that cause expression lines – literally stopping your wrinkles at the source. Once the muscles are relaxed, it cannot be contracted and therefore no unwanted wrinkles will occur. Lines eventually begin to smooth out due to disuse and a smoother, more refined and youthful complexion results.
With an array of high quality cosmetic treatments and a trained cosmetic physician and registered nurse on staff, at Victoria’s Cosmedi Spa you will always be fully informed of all aspects of your treatment so you can make a decision with complete knowledge. Helping you understand your condition and treatment is something we are passionate about, and if you are unhappy with the way your skin looks or feels due to accelerated aging, wrinkles or fine lines, at our Launceston cosmetic clinic we may be able to help you.
