We know winter can wreak havoc on our skin. But that doesn’t mean you need to let the damage show, especially on your face. We’re not suggesting you cover up with gobs of foundation. Instead, why not try a facial peel? Peels take off dead skin layers and stimulate collagen production, both give skin a glow, the antidote to that dull and dry winter skin.
Our SkinMedica peels come in three strengths and are the perfect beauty product to exfoliate skin and remove impurities without doing damage in this colder weather. You will still want to be diligent about applying a broad spectrum sunscreen and moisturizer after a winter peel, but we suggest winter as a great time to do a peel because your sun exposure is usually less in this season.
