For many people, the winter season brings cooler temperatures, shorter days, snow—and dry skin. The cold, dry air and windy, snowy days can leave your skin, and particularly the skin on your face, dry, irritated, and lackluster.
While it’s a good idea to follow a skincare routine all year long, there are a few things you can do during the winter months to alleviate dry skin and keep your face glowing all season long. From a visit to the spa at Cliffrose Lodge, Five Petals Spa, to a few minor adjustments to your daily skincare routine, keep reading as we break down what you need to know.
Give Your Skincare Routine a Makeover
If there’s one thing that spas in Springdale Utah understand, it’s that winter means dry, itchy, irritated skin. While the cold, dry weather of Southern Utah can be partially to blame, we also find that many people don’t adjust their skincare routine seasonally, which can exacerbate the problem.
The skincare products that you use in the summer might not be the right choice for your winter routine. For instance, if you typically use a harsher cleanser to treat breakouts, consider switching to one that’s more hydrating this time of year. Those harsh cleansers might be ok during more humid months. But they can dry out your skin even more this time of year. This can actually cause more breakouts. When your skin is dry, it produces more oils, which can in turn cause more acne.
If you find that your skin is extra dry this time of year, even after swapping your cleanser, consider switching to a more hydrating moisturizer as well. Scrubs and home peels might be a part of your routine in the summer. However, be wary of trying these in the middle of winter. They can strip your skin of its already low moisture content.
Don’t Skip Your Sunscreen
Just because the sun is no longer leaving you sweating doesn’t mean that you don’t still need UV protection!
Sunscreen should be a part of your daily beauty routine all year long. Even on overcast days, UV rays can penetrate winter clouds. Not only can sunscreen keep your skin protected, but it also offers extra hydration to fight back against dry winter weather.
Treat Your Skin to Some Extra Love
Winter weather is tough on your skin. But if you’re local to the area or here for a visit to Zion, our luxury spa in Utah can help you show your skin a little extra love.
A Signature Facial from Five Petals Spa is a great way to give your skin a boost of hydration and nutrition, while also treating yourself to some relaxation and rejuvenation. On our Spa Menu, you’ll find several options to choose from.
Our Sea of Life Facial is our most popular skin treatment. It is available in a 30-minute, 60-minute, or 90-minute treatment. During each, you’ll enjoy a cleansing, restorative mask that will gently remove dead skin and buildup to reveal brighter, smoother skin. Next, organic algae extracts and natural botanical oils are applied directly to your skin, helping to restore the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that your skin needs, especially this time of year.
Each of the Sea of Life Facials includes a therapeutic neck, scalp, shoulder, and facial massage. This is designed to not only help you relieve tension but also to help stimulate your skin to get that beautiful glow. Our 90-minute Sea of Life Facial also includes a second mask treatment, which is designed to draw out impurities, paving the way for fresh, beautiful skin.
The skin on your face isn’t the only skin that suffers this time of year. Our 60-minute “Back to the Narrows” Back Facial is great for treating the sensitive skin of your back, which can be more prone to dryness and breakouts when the weather is cold and dry.
