Fluctuating seasonal temperatures and winter outdoor activities can stress our delicate skin and cause premature aging. More often than not, there is a tendency to shy away from using a richer moisturizer to compensate for these environmental stressors for fear of making the skin oily and causing breakouts. At Oakville Plastic Surgery & Medspa, we believe that enhancing your skin’s moisture and increasing hydration need not be feared, as it is an essential step to maintain youthful and smooth skin.
Research has shown that skin that is properly hydrated has fewer lines and wrinkles; furthermore, the wrinkles that are present tend to be shallower than those on poorly hydrated skin. Turning to ingredients such as plant ceramides and hyaluronic acid can boost hydration levels without feeling heavy or occlusive—oily skin types rejoice!
One of our favourite hydrating skincare solutions for all skin types is:
Vivier HYDRAgel Advanced B5+ Complex | This concentrated pharmaceutical grade Hyaluronic Acid gel helps restore the skin’s moisture barrier function, leaving it hydrated, re-energized and radiant.
This treatment can be applied underneath a moisturizer that’s suited to your skin for the ultimate hydration boost. Say goodbye to fine lines, tightness and flakiness and celebrate smooth, plump and dewy skin.
