Skin Care in the Winter

Winter is right around the corner and we all know that this time of the year can wreck havoc on our skin. Healthy skin care is essential to your overall health. We at On Call Skin Care Clinic would like to share some tips that will help you keep your skin healthy during this coming winter.

Cleansing Your Skin

 No matter which product you use, cleansing is a must-follow first step in skincare. This has to be followed through the year irrespective of the season. In winters, you can limit the number of times you wash your face from 3 times to 2 times. You can cleanse your face with cold milk and cotton ball to prevent excessive dryness.

Scrub, Exfoliation is important

Exfoliating your skin with a scrub is important regardless of the season. You may however want to reduce the number of times you scrub your face in the winter. A daily scrubbing might cause abrasion and turn your skin drier. Using a mild exfoliating scrub weekly will normally work best.

Toning to Tighten Your Skin

Always use a mild toner that suits your skin rather than one loaded with chemicals. A harsh toner could disturb your skin’s PH levels. Toning will remove the post-cleansing residual dirt from your face.

Look for Essential Face Packs for the Winter

There are hundreds of ingredients in your kitchen which can help keep your facial skin soft and supple in the harsh cold season. Try some of these.

  • Avocado Face Packs
  • Banana Face Packs
  • Buttermilk Packs
  • Aloe Vera

 Stay Hydrated

 Drink plenty of water since it’s essential to keep your body and skin hydrated in the dry weather. Be sure you always drink plenty of water for your overall health.

Shield Your Skin from the Sun

The harmful UVA and UVB rays that harm your skin still manage to sneak through the clouds. You should always wear a sun screen or block regardless of the season.

Summer Skin Care

As you prepare to show more skin, be prepared to face the sun’s strong rays with Top Summer Skin Care Tips.

First keep your skin Hydrated

Up your regimen’s level of hydration with intensive masques, perfect for use one to two times a week. Boosters are a great fit, working best when layered underneath a moisturizer. Toners are a refreshing moisturizer prep, working to even out skin porosity. Tip: Refresh with a revitalizing toner spritz at your desk, in the car, at the gym, or anywhere.

Drink Plenty of Water

You should drink at least eight 8-ounce glass of plain filtered every day. This will help you to maintain a critical moisture balance of the body and skin, and assist in detoxification. If you like caffeinated beverages, then you will need to triple the amount of water you drink.

Exfoliate for Cleaner, Smoother Skin

Exfoliation removes dead, dulling skin debris to prevent congestion and improve hydration from toners and moisturizers.

You should perform this in the morning prior to toners, moisturizers, SPF, and make-up.

Sunscreen

Apply sunscreen often, it is not enough to just apply once. As for how much to apply often, a teaspoon for the face and as much as would fill a shot glass are gauges to use.

Repair and Treat Sun Damage

UV light causes photoaging in the form of brown spots, coarse skin and wrinkles. When sunlight comes in contact with your skin a cascade of damages result. You should bombard your skin with age-fighting ingredients to hopefully undo any damages from the sunlight, and to further protect your skin from the aging effects of UV light.

Laser Hair Removal

If you’re not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal may be an option worth considering. We at On Call Medical Clinic preform safe Laser Hair Removal. We can remove hair from your back, bikini area, chest, neck, shoulders, face, especially the upper lip and chin.

Laser hair removal is one of the most commonly done cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It beams highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light. That destroys the hair.

Here are the benefits of laser hair removal:

Precision. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Speed. Each pulse of the laser takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time. The laser can treat an area approximately the size of a quarter every second. Small areas such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, and large areas, such as the back or legs, may take up to an hour.

 

Most patients have permanent hair loss after an average of three to seven sessions.

How Should You Prepare for Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is more than just ”zapping” unwanted hair. It is a medical procedure that requires training to perform and carries potential risks. Before getting laser hair removal, you should thoroughly check the credentials of the doctor or technician performing the procedure. We at On Call Medical Clinic will be glad to share many important facts about the procedure as well as our credentials.

If you are planning on undergoing laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing, and electrolysis for six weeks before treatment. That’s because the laser targets the hairs’ roots, which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking.

You should also avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment. Sun exposure makes laser hair removal less effective and makes complications after treatment more likely.

Just before the procedure, your hair that will be undergoing treatment will be trimmed to a few millimeters above the skin surface. The laser equipment will be adjusted according to the color, thickness, and location of your hair being treated as well as your skin color.
