In climates where season changes are less drastic, you can often get by with little change in your skincare routine. However, in climates like Western New York, subtle changes in your skincare routine can make drastic differences in the way your skin looks and feels.

With the cold weather comes indoor dry heat, often dehydrating the skin and making it feel tight and dry. Similar effects come from air conditioning in the summer. Your regular everyday moisturizer or night cream may just not cut it once the weather changes and you’re all toasty in your house with the heat blasting. You can try using a serum under your day or night moisturizers for a little boost or swapping out your light moisturizers in favor of thicker formulas. Sometimes simple changes to your routine, like adding an exfoliate and/or using a moisture mask once a week, can really help.

If your skin has a tendency to get that dry tight feeling as the outdoor weather cools, here are a fewPlantogen products we recommend. For a thorough skincare consultation book an appointment with one of our skincare specialist.

Purifying Cleanser: A creamy, gentle cleanser that helps dissolve and lift impurities without drying the skin. Cleans deep down to remove dirt, oil and make-up. Contains Manuka Honey, Chamomile extract and Vitamin E.

Intensive Firming Serum: An intensive firming serum with Green Tea (an antioxidant) and an active standardized botanical complex of plant extracts. This gel, used as a base, encourages the active ingredients in your moisturizer to be more readily absorbed in the skin.

Hydrating Moisturiser: An intensive hydrating moisturizer packed with plant extracts, vitamins and antioxidants in a liposomal solution to ensure target delivery to help diminish fine lines and reduce the signs of premature aging while relieving dryness. Skin feels softer, smoother and firmer.

Overnight Stress Repair: This salon favorite we refer to as a “facial in a jar”. This wonderful night time cream will renew and refresh your skin overnight. A rich cream with Manuka Honey, Lecithin, Chamomile extract, Vitamin C and Retnol help to improve the appearance of tired, stressed skin.

Gentle Facial Scrub: A gentle, foaming, exfoliating facial scrub, effective in sloughing dead skin cells to reveal a fresher, healthier looking skin. Increases cell renewal which in turn increases the efficiency of penetration of moisturizers applied after exfoliation, resulting in improved hydration of the skin’s surface.

Skin Bright Microdermabrasion Scrub: A gentle scrub with Vitamin C rich Kakadu Plum, Rice Starch, Licorice Root & fruit enzymes providing mild microdermabrasion and skin brightening properties.

Manuka Honey Mask: An antioxidant rich Manuka Honey Mask that soothes and hydrates the skin with a combination of select vitamins, minerals and enzymes.
