Combination Skin Winter Care

Combination skin issues

Combination skin is best described as oily down the ‘t-zone’ and normal-dry over surrounding regions of the face. The condition of combination skin can vary with fluctuations in routine, diet, climate, stress levels, and age. These shifts can cause combination skin to become rough, dehydrated or oily, and blemished.

Is combination skin dry in winter?

Combination skin becomes oilier during the summer months due to the increased humidity and heat. The winter months can bring about a dull complexion, coarse texture, and fine lines. This is mainly due to cold temperatures, and artificial heat exposure from heaters.

So, now that the snow is here to stay – let’s talk winter care for combination skin!

How do you treat combination skin in the winter?

Our favourite treatment for instant results and the perfect level of exfoliation is – dermaplaning!

Dermaplaning removes the superficial layers that build up from sun damage through the summer months. Although tanned skin adds a flattering glow to the complexion, it can leave the skin looking dull and damaged. Clearing away the damaged cells that build up through the summer brightens and evens the overall complexion.

There’s nothing like applying your skincare products to a freshly dermaplaned face. Once the skin is clear of buildup and dull skin, it quickly and effectively absorbs products and active ingredients.

Should my skincare routine change during the winter months?

As with any skin type, it is beneficial to adapt your skin routine to the changing climate throughout the year, this includes product selection. Try our Home Care Selection Guide for Winter Skin Care recommendations.

We highly recommend professional skincare products containing hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid attracts and maintains hydration to hold 1000 times its weight in water.Even if you drink 8 glasses of water per day, by the time your other organs have taken their share of water, there is very little that actually transmits to the visible layers of the skin.

Hyaluronic acid molecules act like a breathable capsule absorbing and retaining water molecules, thereby, preventing water from leaving your skin through evaporation.

BONUS…Fuzz-free finish!

Another benefit of Dérmaplane is the instant and painless removal of fine vellus hair. The precise technique and fine blades allow for precision removal and a smooth finish.

Take it up a notch.

An excellent pairing for Dermaplane is an AHA BOOST. The combination of hydroxy acids applied to the skin amplifies hydration levels by pushing fresh cells to the surface. These fresh cells are at their prime for proper absorption and hydration retention and therefore make your skin look and feel JUICY!

Lash Lift Deals- September | Lash Love Package

lash lift deals

Lash Lift Lovers

The Lash Lift is loved by people who desire the appearance of longer, more feminine lashes. The lash lift does not add lashes. Instead, it curls the natural lashes using a gentle lash perm solution.

Different sizes of silicone pads are used to “lift” each lash individually and create a subtle, natural looking curl, giving the illusion of length for a full, natural yet perfect look. 

This treatment takes 45 minutes with results lasting 6-8 weeks. 

lash lift before and after

Do lash lifts ruin your eyelashes?

While the perm solution used is safe for most people, it is recommend that clients wait 12 weeks between lash lifts. This allows you hair to recover and regenerate new growth.

The adhesive used contains latex. As a result, people with sensitivity to latex are not recommended to have the service.

If you have ever reacted to artificial lash glue used for strip lashes, you are at risk of having a reaction. Typical allergic reaction will cause the eyes to swell for up to 72 hours.

Lash care tip: Use EyEnvy Lash and Brow Conditioner after a lash lift. EyEnvy conditions and hydrates hair follicles for stronger-than-ever lashes. It contains a combination of nutrient rich vitamins and peptides that elevate hydration and nourish the hair shaft.

Ingrown hair removal Edmonton

How can I get rid of ingrown hairs and bumps on my face and scalp? 

Let’ start by understanding the cause of these bumps on the scalp… 

Razor bumps are often caused by close shaving and barbering techniques. The shaved areas of the skin endure micro-trauma over the protrusion of the hair follicle. The damage is often due to dull blades, excessive pressure, repeated passes, and/or shaving against the grain. 

Our skin’s natural response to trauma is to repair and rebuild the damaged tissue, causing a blockage over the opening of the follicle. This blockage prevents the hair strand from breaking through to the surface of the skin. The hair strand will continue to grow and coil back into the skin causing it to swell.

What treatment is recommended for getting rid of these bumps? 

Our preferred method to treat scalp folliculitis is with salicylic acid peels or ‘Acne Treatment”. Known for its exfoliating and anti-inflammatory benefits, Salicylic Acid is an effective solution for this and other skin conditions. 

What to expect during your treatment…

Salicylic acid is applied to the area for 2-8 minutes and can be layered to intensify the treatment. The acid penetrates deep into follicles where it loosens and softens the oils and buildup. This allows for the hair to become dislodged as the skin begins to shed the excess layers above the follicle opening.  

The treatment takes 30-45 minutes and may require manual extraction of the trapped hair. The chemical peel process is repeated 3-4 weeks apart until desired results are achieved, on average 4-6 sessions are required for maximum results.

What should I be doing at home?  

Products containing Salicylic Acid are great for at-home treatment. Regular use of these products will continue the treatment process and boost results. 

TIPS  

Proper home care is key for maximizing results and preventing future breakouts. Here are some tips to follow:  

  • Keep the area dry and clean.  
  • Avoid wearing headgear for extended periods. 
  • Do not shave down to the skin with razors. 
  • Use electric trimmers with a guard to avoid close shave. 
  • Exfoliate regularly using a skin scrub.  
  • Avoid picking at live skin. 

While the visibly bumpy appearance on the skin is the most common concern, other far more concerning issues can arise from these bumps on the scalp. These skin flare-ups can cause scarring, permanent hair loss, bacterial and fungal infections. In severe cases, your skincare specialist may suggest a visit with your doctor for testing or diagnosis before commencing treatment.
