Winter Skincare Tips | Julien Farel | Loews Regency New York
New York City

New York is beautiful during the winter months, with so many sights to see — Central Park, Fifth Avenue storefront windows and Rockefeller Center. But with so many of these must-sees outside, it is important to dress warm and stick to a winter beauty routine that will keep your skin glowing day and night.
Here are five winter skincare tips to protect against the harsh winter cold from Oksana Shenker, Lead Aesthetician at Julien Farel Restore Salon & Spa at Loews Regency New York Hotel.

Winter Skincare Tips from Julien Farel | Loews Regency New York Hotel

1. Cleanse Your Skin

Stick with a gentle creamy cleanser that has an alkaline pH balance like Natura Bisse, The Cure All In One Cleanser. A gentle cleanser removes impurities without damaging your protective moisture barrier.

2. Exfoliate

Exfoliation allows your moisturizer to absorb better, since you are cleansing away the dead skin on the surface. At Julien Farel Restore Salon & Spa at Loews Regency New York Hotel, Shenker uses a Natura Bisse Tolerance Enzyme Peel, which is ultra-gentle yet highly effective without the granulated particles.

3. Hydrate

Water is important for your health and also important for your skin. Hydrate overnight with a face mask to deliver an extra boost of hydration.

4. Moisturize

Try organic oils like pomegranates, raspberry, or cranberry seed oils. Organic oils are extremely rich and nutritional, with regenerative properties that reinvigorate skin, fight free radicals and create lasting and healthy moisture. These oils are perfect for all skin types including oily and acne-prone skin. At home, you can mix these into your moisturizer or apply directly to the skin.

5. Lips

Don’t forget about them in the winter, you can lightly brush lips with your toothbrush and apply lip balm or eye cream to maximize hydration.
