Winter Skin Care Tips
The long, cold and dark days of winter can be unkind to our bodies. Rushing down a street on a blustery day, navigating icy walkways or layering up just to keep warm can take a toll. But winter can also be restorative. It can give us time to quietly reflect on what we want for the year ahead and allow us to find time for self-care.
One way commit to self-care is by paying attention to your skin. The cold air and dry heat along with exposure impacts moisture retention—especially on the hands and face. Regardless of your skin type, you can feel the impact. For those with maturing or dry skin, it can be particularly damaging and uncomfortable.
It becomes very important to hydrate the skin more than any other season. Dehydration of the skin leads to poor appearance, reduced natural defense functionality, and accelerated aging. It also reduces the impact of products we use routinely.
J.Walker’s Wellness Center offers treatments to offset such effects on the skin such as facials, massage and body treatments, and the very popular Hydrafacial.
These powerful treatments can help “awaken” the skin so it may properly function again. Daily care with proper everyday products, like J.Walker’s line of skincare, will continue to strengthen the skin’s defenses against aging and leave it with a youthful and natural glow.
One fantastic treatment is J.Walker’s Signature Chocolate Face Mask.
The Chocolate Hydration Mask replenishes moisture to plump and revitalize the complexion with antioxidants and soothing oils. Cocoa, jojoba oil and vitamin E work to nourish and hydrate the skin. Additionally, almond and macadamia nut oils condition to soften, smooth, and refine the appearance of fine lines to reveal a youthful radiance.
Cocoa: high in flavanols (an antioxidant found particularly in cocoa), antioxidant, skin smoother
Macadamia Nut Oil: moisturizing toner, softening
Almond Oil: vitamin rich moisturizer and conditioner
Jojoba Oil: nourishing and hydrating
Vitamin E: hydrating antioxidant
Who can resist the smell of chocolate? In addition to all the nourishing benefits of the facial, the aroma triggers a serotonin release. This effect, also known as the happiness hormone, is a natural antidepressant. Lastly, a J.Walker facial provides a one-of-a-kind relaxation experience, which will help you kiss your stress goodbye.
