The dry, cold air of winter can be a tough time for your skin, and a facial can be a great defense against the wintry air.
Adding facials to your skin routine is good any time of year, but it can be the saving grace during the winter months, when your skin can get dry or dull.
You will want to avoid facials that scrub or exfoliate, and instead focus on moisturizing and revitalizing. After a facial, your skin will be able to withstand the winter air a bit better, and you’ll be happier for it.
According to the Cosmetics Cop, Paula Begoun, there are several benefits to getting a facial. Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed by a professional esthetician, and severely dehydrated skin can be improved by rich, nourishing face masks.
Some great tips to keep your skin looking great all winter long include:
- Sunscreen. Even though we never think the sun can damage our skin in the winter time, that’s not true. UV rays can still damage your skin, even in the winter, so slather on that sunscreen!
- Look for products with aloe vera, avocado, buttermilk or banana. These ingredients will really help to moisturize your skin.
- Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Consider investing in a “heavy-duty” nighttime moisturizer for the winter, so that your skin can really soak in what it needs.
- Find a good toner. Toner is especially great in the winter, and it will close up any pores that would otherwise be exposed to the cold air. Try to avoid toners with alcohol in them, as they will dry your skin out even more.

Facials can actually change the texture of your skin, and make it appear brighter, smoother and tighter. During the winter, many of us need exactly that.
