The winter months are hard on most skin types. Want to maintain that summer glow year round? Here are a few tips to keep you and your skin happy!

1) Incorporate Plants

Not into your decorating but into your diet! Green veggies like kale and spinach provide the necessary nutrients (e.g., protein, minerals and vitamins) to nurture and support skin health.

2) Avoid Excess Caffeine and Alcohol

Alcohol turns to sugar in the body, and too much sugar can damage skin cells; while caffeine can result in skin inflammation.

3) Rejuvenate with Winter Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing can treat a variety of skin imperfections including wrinkles, uneven skin pigmentation, enlarged pores, acne, scars and more. And winter is the best time of year for laser skin resurfacing because your skin is less exposed to direct sun, which needs to be limited post procedure.

4) Avoid Too Much Sodium

A high-sodium diet is one of the main causes of fluid retention, and fluid retention can make your skin look puffy. Cutting sodium intake to 1500 mg a day or less will do wonders for your skin (and your blood pressure).

5) Avoid Spicy Foods

Though spicy foods can be delicious, they can also be terrible for your skin – especially if you have fair skin. Spicy foods can cause your face to appear red and blotchy. They can also aggravate an episode of Rosacea.

6) Wear Sunscreen

Remember to wear sunscreen, especially if you are hitting the slopes or are outside for extended periods of time.

Remember Spring is just around the corner.
