February Is For Self - Care. Take some time to show yourself some love and focus on the well-being of your skin. Take a moment to address any issues that have been bothering you, such as dry skin, acne, eczema or rashes.
Try a face mask. “The right mask used with the right frequency can help to address concerns like dryness, acne, dark marks, and oiliness,” says Nurse Terri. “Masks with hyaluronic acid, especially sheet masks, can hydrate and smooth sensitive skin. Clay masks are fantastic for acne and oil control. Masks with alpha- or beta-hydroxy acids can gently exfoliate, improve dark marks, improve texture, and reduce clogging.” Give yourself a manicure. Relax at home with your favorite Netflix show and do a DIY mani and pedi. You will have none of the hassle of going to the salon and you know exactly where the tools have been. Exfoliate your lips. Use a gentle lip scrub to help smooth chapped lips. Remember to rehydrate with a moisturizing lip product after to keep your lips soft. Avoid smoking. Smoking is an all-around health hazard - it also promotes aging and contributes to wrinkles. Get your beauty rest. Getting the recommended 8 hours of sleep per night can benefit your skin. Manage stress levels. Stress can cause skin problems, so it's important to manage your stress levels. If you suffer from any skin conditions, including acne, eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea, stress can cause unwanted flare-ups. Call or Make an Appointment if you notice any skin changes.

Winter Skin Tip
If you spend time outdoors this winter, you are still being exposed to harmful UV rays. Higher elevation combined with snow reflecting and intensifying sunlight can cause sunburn. If you are outside this winter, wear a sunscreen of at least 30 SPF.
