Make Time to Nourish Your Skin This Winter

This article is from our advertised sponsor, the professionals at Shefa Wellness Center.

The dry, cold winter air can certainly take a toll on the skin. Our skin is always working for us, it never rests. It not only gives us our appearance and shape, it serves as an important outer barrier protecting all our internal organs from disease, injury and water loss. It aids in the production of Vitamin D, provides thermoregulation and has sensory functions. It is no wonder why our skin sometimes appears dry, dull and tired!

One way we can refresh and restore the appearance of our hard-working skin is through a chemical peel. A chemical peel is one of the oldest and most reliable methods of safely improving the look, feel and overall health of your skin. The active ingredients in most chemical peels are natural, such as glycolic acid (derived from sugar cane), lactic acid (found in milk sugars), salicylic acid (from wintergreen) and hyaluronic acid which is naturally created within the body.

Chemical peels help to increase cell turnover to stimulate healthy cell growth while exfoliating dead cells. In addition to brightening and softening your skin’s tone and texture, it can also reduce and minimize the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles; repair visible sun damage and uneven pigmentation, and reduces inflammation from acne blemishes and diminish existing acne scars.

Now is the time to nourish your winter skin, and a chemical peel is just one of the simple, safe and affordable ways to rejuvenate it again!
