Winter Skin: RéVive Founder, Dr. Gregory Brown Offers Tips for Braving the Cold

Previous Next

With the start of a new year, we are full of energy and ideas to improve our health and appearance, with all the best intentions to follow through.  By the end of the month, some of that drive has lessened and often the results of our good intentions aren’t very apparent.  I believe it’s because our goals are too ambitious.  The small steps you take towards a better skin and health routine will pay the largest dividends and can be sustainable over time.  Here are some of my top of my suggestions for starting off the year right.

MAINTAIN MOISTURE

The reason our skin feels drier in the winter season is that when the body feels cold, it shunts blood away from the skin, meaning that your skin’s blood supply, which is comprised of tiny capillaries, is constantly constricted. As a result, skin is much more vulnerable in the winter.

It’s important to ensure you are providing adequate moisturization on all areas of the body, including but not limited to the face. The lip and perioral areas are also especially vulnerable to winter weather – dryness around the lip area that can cause permanent lines.

To temporarily escape the bitter cold, many of us will travel to warm, tropical climates. While relaxing, warm weather vacations offer many opportunities to cause damage to the skin. The first opportunity occurs before you even land at your destination – during your flight. The dry cabin air can strip skin of moisture and leave it dull, tired-looking and in need of hydration. Remember to hydrate skin while in flight. After you land, make sure you are protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful and aging rays, no matter the season. I firmly believe that the most important anti-aging cream anyone can own is sunscreen.

Winter Skincare Picks from RéVive:

RéVive’s Lip & Perioral Renewal Cream is ideal to combat the elements. It is both protective and preventative and helps to alleviate dryness around the lip area.

RéVive Intensité Moisture Serum Extrême is a potent hydrating serum that helps the skin make its own natural moisture for a plumping effect that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
