Make Dry Skin Vanish with Microdermabrasion
Frustrated by constant dry skin troubles, especially during the long cold months of a Canadian winter? Microdermabrasion is proven to be a great way to rejuvenate the skin and relieve the trouble of frequent or recurring dry skin.
Dry skin is annoying and uncomfortable, and when it just won’t seem to go away it can be extremely frustrating. This is a very common problem for many Canadians during the winter, when cold temperatures and recirculated air can really do a number on the skin and cause dry skin flare ups or make existing symptoms even worse. Oftentimes when this occurs, our usual moisturizers just can’t deliver the results that are needed to provide relief and treat dry skin effectively. We need something better.
Fortunately, there is a method that can treat dry skin and make these problems a thing of the past. It’s called microdermabrasion. Along with proper hydration and moisturization, microdermabrasion can improve the look and feel of your skin, smooth out your skin tone, and rejuvenate your complexion, all while helping to alleviate the problems of dry skin. You can even perform microdermabrasion treatments right in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
But why do these problems with dry skin happen in the first place? What is it about the seasons changing from warmer to colder that seems to always result in the onset of dry skin? The answer is really quite simple.
Why Does Cold Winter Weather Make Dry Skin Worse?
When colder weather arrives, furnaces and heaters of all types kick on and start running regularly to maintain comfortable temperatures in our homes and workplaces. Unfortunately, the side effect of all those forced air heaters is the reduction in humidity in the air, leading to extremely dry environmental conditions that can really mess with your skin. The drier the air, the more moisture your body loses, and the harder it is for your skin to stay healthy.
Even with portable humidifiers and frequent application of moisturizer, sometimes your skin just can’t keep up, and will develop dry patches of skin that are often itchy. Scratching to relieve the itch can worsen the condition and may lead to long-term skin damage if not treated properly, so you’re definitely going to want to take care of the situation early to avoid future problems.
What Are Some Ways to Manage Seasonal Dry Skin?
For starters, the best thing anyone can do to keep the skin healthy and avoid excessively dry skin is to drink plenty of water. The importance of proper hydration cannot be overemphasized, not just for the health of your skin but for the overall health of your body and all its functions. A well-hydrated body feels better and works better, and that’s the bottom line. Always make sure to drink plenty of water throughout each day, which can be very easy to do if you remember to keep a refillable water bottle close at hand.
Choosing the right moisturizer, and using it regularly, is another way you can help minimize the effects of seasonal dry skin. You’ll want to find an intensive moisturizer that’s not too heavy or greasy, preferably with an all-natural formula. Some types of moisturizers can be loaded with oils and other types of chemical ingredients that can actually have a detrimental effect on your skin over the long run. For example, some heavy, oily creams can clog pores and cause other types of skin conditions, so it is always best to choose a lighter, more natural product that’s easier on your skin.
You’ll also want to take a similar approach to selecting soaps and cleansers, as overly harsh chemicals can really pull the moisture out of your skin quickly and make the problem of seasonal dry skin worse. Light, gentle cleansers like Silk’n Pink Facial Cleanse are perfect for keeping your skin clean and your pores clear, and are gentle enough to use every day without drying the skin. You can also use a cleansing brush like the Silk’n Swirl to provide a gentle, thorough scrub on your skin while automatically dispensing just the right amount of cleanser on to its soft non-abrasive bristles.
In addition to these simple strategies to manage dry skin during the cold, harsh months of winter, exfoliation in the form of microdermabrasion can be extremely effective in treating stubborn dry skin and refreshing the look and feel of your skin. Let’s take a closer look at microdermabrasion, and how it works to alleviate the troubles of dry skin.
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
Microdermabrasion is a process that mechanically removes dead and damaged skin cells from the outermost layer of the epidermis. This can be done either by spraying a fine granular material at high speed onto the skin surface, or with an abrasive-tipped device that passes over the treatment area. As these methods work to loosen and remove the dead and damaged skin cells from the surface, a continual vacuum built into the devices works to lift away the removed cells, revealing the healthy and strong layer of skin below.
Spray-on microdermabrasion is usually performed only in clinical environments or aesthetic salons. These professional treatments can be costly and fitting them into a busy schedule can be a bit of a hassle. Alternatively, handheld microdermabrasion devices are compact and can easily be used right in the comfort of your own home, allowing you to get all the beneficial effects of microdermabrasion any time you want.
What Are the Benefits of Microdermabrasion for Dry Skin?
The benefits of microdermabrasion are numerous, as the stimulating effect of the treatment helps to increase circulation in the skin and encourages the natural repair and rejuvenation processes of the body to accelerate. This results in an increased production of collagen and elastin within the skin, leaving your skin feeling firmer and more resilient. The boosted circulation also helps to provide greater nourishment to the skin cells, thereby strengthening them.
In addition, by revealing the healthy, strong layer of skin that was once covered by dead and damaged skin cells, microdermabrasion makes the absorption of moisturizer more efficient. This means you will get better results from your moisturizer, and perhaps you may even notice that you need to apply less of it or apply it less often.
These benefits mean that dry skin stays under control, appears less often, and with far lower intensity. With microdermabrasion, your skin will look better, feel better, and be more resilient to the harmful effects of dry winter air.
