Winter Skin Tips from Medispa at Woodmark Hotelphoto

The Northwest Face Spa estheticians at the Woodmark would like to share some fall and winter skin care tips to help keep your skin radiant this holiday season. Cold and dry winters can be brutal on your skin. To battle uncomfortable dryness of the skin on your face, hands, and feet, enjoy these simple tips to keep you glowing through the frigid months of winter.


  • Wash with a moisturizing cleanser and lukewarm water. Low humidity and cooler air zap moisture from your skin. Look for lotions with humectants, a class of substances that attract moisture to your skin. GM Collins Hydramucine skin care products are a great option for dry or dehydrated skin.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids, like flaxseed oil and salmon keep skin soft and plump.
  • Antioxidants keep your skin protected from free radical damage, stimulate collagen production, and provide radiance. Vitamins C and E are proven to help fight the signs of aging. Skinmedica's C+E Complex is an excellent source of these antioxidants.
  • Utilize sun protection products at all times. Just because the sun is not out, it can still do damage. Stay protected with an SPF 30 on your face and hands.
  • Lastly and most importantly, seek an esthetician to troubleshoot your current regime and give you advice on skin care products you should be using.
