Winter Skin Care

Renee Lapino Skincare Clinic - Winter skin care tips and treatments

The onslaught of cold, dry air outside and warm, dry air inside is the perfect recipe for a skin disaster. By December, many of us are facing dry, red, inflamed, chapped complexions. Get the best winter skin care tips from us here at Renee Lapino Skincare Clinic.


To cover all your bases, prep your home with a cool humidifier or two – the bedroom and living area are where you usually spend the most time. Make sure to add a fish oil or Omega supplement to your diet if you haven’t already. 

Oil Cleanser

Use an oil cleanser such as CosMedix Purity Solution. It will deep clean, and hydrate simultaneously. Massage your oil into dry skin for 1-3 mins, emulsify with water, and then remove with a warm damp muslin cloth to help remove the dead skin cells making the surface look worse. If you have a GetHarley account, text your concierge and ask to have this miracle cleanser added to your account. I approve it for ALL skin types.

Hyaluronic Acid and Antioxidant Serum

Then slather on a Hyaluronic Acid and Antioxidant serum. NeoStrata TriTherapy Lifting Serum is a favourite, which we post out to over half our patients every November! HA causes the water in your skin to stick to the skin cell, which plumps up the cell and gives you more moisture on the surface. Antioxidants protect you from environmental and UV damage. The cloud cover will be working overtime to magnify damaging rays, so protection is key. I use Allies of Skin Peptides and Antioxidants Firming Daily Treatment every morning from September through March.

Glycerin Creams

Use creams, not lotions, at night. Glycerin creams are a great support for chapped skin, as they too draw moisture from the body to the surface. Ceramides aid in the prevention of the skin’s barrier, which is easily broken down during the winter, so they’re another good call in the prevention of winter woes. NeoStrata Skin Active Dermal Replenishment Cream does it all, and we can send it out from Get Harley for next day delivery, so you can start on it instantly! 

Our Winter Skin Treatments

Winter Skin Treatments that we swear by – and have ourselves – include the Holistic Facial, Clean & Calm, which deep cleans the skin, calms with personalized products applied throughout a 20 minute facial massage, and a hydrating mask to have you walk out the door instantly dewy and glowing.

I also love the Bright & Tight facial with our Head Therapist, Chloe Proud. It utilizes many of the holistic facial steps, but also has the benefit of Radio Frequency to tighten and lift the skin, and a hydrating sheet mask with LED Light Therapy.

Just a few key changes will have you facing the Holidays with a dewy glow!
