SOS: Save Our Skin

SavvyMom January 26, 2017

Winter weather can wreak havoc on our largest organ—the skin. But when Jack Frost nips at your nose this year, we suggest you nip right back.

Consider a facial. Sometimes reinforcements are needed in this war on our epidermis. With six locations around Vancouver, Skoah has the ideal solution for busy moms on a budget. Its Target Sessions menu offers four different 30-minute facials under $55. Choose from Detox, Rewind, Glow and Peel. We love that their products are all made in Canada.

In addition to getting proper amounts of sleep, hydration and exercise (easier said than done, we know), now’s the time to focus on a proper cleansing routine to keep your face looking dewy.

Use a tonic. Adding this step after you cleanse can help restore your pH balance and result in a more even complexion. One to try: Skoah’s Tonik ($25) is alcohol-free and loaded with plant extracts that will hydrate dry skin.

Try a serum. It’s an extra step, but feels like the extra layer of baby fat our face needs to endure either the cold or the Pineapple Express—it both hydrates and strengthens skin. Just be sure to allow your skin to absorb the serum before you moisturize.

Take a nutraceutical. Skincare in the form of a pill, GliSODin offers a range of dietary supplements that contain melon extract, which is said to reduce the harmful effects of free radicals and reduce the signs of aging.

Winter packs a mean punch. Punch back—we’ve got the 12 Best Local Spas in Vancouver and 6 Ways to Feel Great in Vancouver.
