Thinking about what skincare changes you should make for the colder months? We are giving you the rundown about everything you need to know about protecting your skin in harsher weather conditions!

As we all know, the cold weather can seriously dry out your skin and strip it of its natural hydration and oils. When we neglect our skin in the winter or don’t take extra care of it, we can suffer from some consequences. Luckily for you, we are going to give you a list of aesthetic services and at-home regimens, you should follow these in order to keep your skin looking and feeling fantastic, even in the colder months.

Institut DERMed Clinical Skincare Products

At Enlighten Laser, we always recommend Institut DERMed Clinical Skincare Products in order to keep your skin looking amazing. The unique and tailored ingredients used in these products are perfectly matched with your skin type or any issue you are trying to tackle. The treatments are increased in intensity over several sessions, which in turn will help you feel and see amazing results. You can use certain products at home as well, which is great for those that already have a daily skin routine. 

Cover Up!

Although many of us do not want to wear a balaclava every day in the winter, it is important to consider covering up your face just as much as you would other parts of your body. Cold temperatures can dry out your skin and cause cracking on your lips, nose, cheek, and even forehead if it is not protected.

We love using blanket scarves, trendy, and also warm!

Use Sunscreen – Yes, you read that right!

We know that this may sound very weird, especially in the winter, but sunscreen is actually so important to wear, even in the wintertime. Just because the sun isn’t as hot in the winter as it is in the summer, the UV rays that come from the sun are still present and just as dangerous. Consider applying sunscreen to your face before leaving the house or consider purchasing makeup with a high SPF in it. We recommend Jane Iredale’s products, especially their Glow Time® Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream. The Glow Time BB cream covers blemishes, minimizes the appearance of pores, disguises wrinkles and smooths, brightens skin, and contains an SPF of 25. All Jane Iredale products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free!

Customized Medical Facials

Similar to Institut DERMed Clinical Skincare Products, these amazing facials that we offer at Enlighten are perfectly tailored to your skin type, and issue in order to tackle the problem head-on. Not all facials are created equal, and we believe it is important that everyone has a different approach to a facial they are receiving as no two skin types are alike. Before beginning the treatment, you will have an evaluation and consultation with one of our skincare experts in order to properly treat the specific skin need. During your customized medical facial treatment, you can expect your skin to be cleansed, exfoliated, extracted and moisturized using medical-grade products and tools.

Advanced Nutrition Programme

Many of us feel the physical impacts that colder weather and less sun has on our bodies. At Enlighten Laser, we recommend the Advanced Nutrition Programme™, which is a premium advanced skincare range of supplements. The supplements support healthy skin and help enhance your overall well being. Our pharmaceutical and nutrition consultants select only the highest quality ingredients which your body can easily absorb, and our fish oils are scrupulously screened for pollutants.


At Enlighten Laser, we are extremely passionate about skincare all year round. We always tell our clients how important it is to protect and take care of your skin not only in the summer but the winter as well!
