Finding the right products for your skin can be a guessing game—that’s why it’s a good idea to consult with a specialist for dry skin treatments. A qualified skin care physician can determine your skin type, see if there are flaws with your current skin care routine, and suggest the best products to use.

For Aging Skin

Keeping your skin hydrated, especially in the winter, is essential to preserve young looking skin. Try SkinMedica’s HA⁵® Rejuvenating Hydrator to moisturize and rejuvenate your skin. 96 percent of patients experienced softer, smoother skin immediately. HA⁵® Rejuvenating Hydrator contains hyaluronic acid to improve skin health, as well as ingredients to smooth, hydrate, and sooth the skin. Use this product all year long for youthful, nourished skin.

For Very Dry Skin

The winter intensifies dry skin. Lock moisture in with SkinMedica’s Derma Repair Cream, designed to keep the skin hydrated even in the harshest winter weather. It’s packed with high levels of vitamin D and E, as well as powerful moisturizing agents, including fatty acids and hydraulic acid. Not only will it keep the skin hydrated, but it will replenish any moisture already lost.

For added benefits, couple this product with SkinMedica’s TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream. The product is specifically formulated for dry and post-procedure skin. It includes SkinMedica’s proprietary blend of human growth hormones, as well as ceramide, a skin barrier agent that helps to replenish your skin’s natural moisture.

If you have sensitive skin, but still in need of dry skin treatments, try Skin Medica’s Replenish Hydrating Cream, intended for delicate skin. It soothes while also hydrating.

For Oily Skin

Although counterintuitive, oily skin often needs moisture just like its dry counterparts. Using a lightweight moisturizer is the best option. For oily skin, try SkinMedica’s Ultra Sheer Moisturizer. This is an oil-free moisturizer intended to keep the skin hydrated without using excess oils. This product is also ideal for those with sensitive skin. It has antioxidants and hydraulic acid to protect skin health.
