When it comes to skin care, especially as the seasons change, there are five things the cosmetic surgeons at The Hughes Center Cosmetic Surgery Center and Medical Spa in Philadelphia and New Jersey suggest to help beat the cold weather blues. They are:

    1. Moisturize. One of the most important skin care products to start out with is moisturizing with a combination of glycolic acid and Retin-A plus sunblock. There are additional moisturizers on the market, but this may be a good place to start. Talk with your cosmetic surgeon at The Hughes Center to find the right combination of skin care products and moisturizers to get you through the seasonal changes with your skin.
    2. Sun Protection. Sunblocks that protect from skin cancer have one of the three physical barriers. It’s the only way to protect your skin from long range UVA waves, which are the cause of cancer and wrinkles. These three physical barriers are: Zinc oxide, titanium dioxide or parsol 1789 (avobenzone). The sunblock on these skin care products lasts anywhere from 80 minutes to two or three hours. There is also makeup that may protect your face from the sun.
    3. Makeup as Sun Protection. If reapplying sun protection every few hours is of no interest, glominerals makeup has been developed with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide in it.
    4. Microdermabrasion or Chemical Peels: Both skin care services remove dead skin cells and stimulate collagen production. Continuing to have these on a regular basis throughout the year may help beat out the winter skin doldrums.
    5. Teoxane. This is the only skincare line with Resilient Hyaluronic Acid (RHA) that provides superior hydration.
