Skin Tip of the Week: #4

Cracking the cold-weather skin-care code can sometimes be as easy as defying some common myths. There are a lot of misconceptions out there, but with an overcast, cloudy, cold day ahead, we have one particular point we want to focus on: sunscreen.

One of the most common skincare bloopers is thinking that overcast skies means you can cut back on sunscreen. Wrong! The truth is, as a depleting ozone has led to stronger UVB burning rays, SPF is now a year-round endeavor. Clouds do little to filter out wrinkle-accelerating UVA rays. Come cooler, drier weather, find a daily moisturizer with a broad-spectrum SPF 15 (or higher) to hydrate and protect.

We highly recommend a high-quality product like PCA Skin’s Hydrator Plus SPF 25.It offers additional emollience to soothe dry skin during the winter season or in dry climates.

Ennhance your sun protection exponentially by using an antioxidant-rich serum underneath your moisturizer. We have everything you need at our online store or in our retail section when you visit. If you have any questions or need help finding the product that’s just right for you, feel free to speak with one of our estheticians for a free consultation.

About the Author:

I serve on and support several community charity committees as I believe it’s important to give back. In my spare time I love hiking and fishing in the Adirondacks, equestrian sports and thoroughbreds, fine wine, skiing, golf, and traveling to distant locations. I also love early mornings in the gym exercising, pilates, my dog, cooking, and sharing time with my husband and two children, good friends and family.
