It is the best skin care provided by a DermaFix Professional Clinic, being able to give you the very best in skin care products for the various skin care concerns associated with dry skin in winter.

At this time of the year, pigmented, wrinkled & dry skin in winter is extremely difficult to deal with. Skin may feel tight, rough to the touch and sensitive, especially in drying environmental conditions or in a low humidity environment.  Indoor heating also causes dehydration, making dry skin in winter worse. A humidifier can however be of some help to appease these environmental conditions. The use of DermaFix Omega⊕ Tissue Oil or 100% Organic Argan Oil, and Bio Effective Cream, with hydrolysed Soy Milk protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Glycosaminoglycans, Peptides and Aloe Vera, just to name a few actives, can assist you with this problem.

Wrinkles, sagging, premature ageing, dryness, dark spots, flaking and peeling skin may result from years of disregard for skin care procedures and by not applying high protection sunscreens. Free radicals are oxygen molecules that have odd numbers of electrons. These radicals like to have an even number, so they “steal” electrons from vital skin components, such as DNA and cell membrane lipids. Losing the electron damages the DNA or cell membrane lipids, leading to skin cancers and premature ageing. Cyclists, horse riders, road runners and swimmers being particularly prone, should always protect their skin with our DermaShield SPF 50 UVA/UVB High Protection sun screen, which is SANS 1557: 2013 approved. It is a sun screen that is enhanced with Zinc oxide and Titanium in a non-greasy formula.

With age, menopause or perimenopause, the oestrogen levels decline to such an extent that it leads to the drying of the skin and worsening of wrinkles. Genetic tendencies exacerbate skin care concerns and together with the various free radical conditions, it can lead to more serious skin care conditions that could require medical attention.

At any age, knowing how to protect, hydrate and moisturise the skin correctly is important. Consult with our approved Skin Care clinics, in order to receive the answers on how to correct severely dried out skin. These Skin Care Professionals are trained to recognise the various corrective procedures which bring about change to these conditions. Skin peeling with the DermaFix Progressive 3/4 Stage Peel, exclusive to DermaFix Professional Clinics, features ingredients like Vitamin A Propionate, making it the best solution for a quick “Fix” with long term benefits.  The result is immediate improvement on this type of weather beaten skin.   Micro Needling used in combination with Skin Peeling for deeper skin wrinkling and intrinsic ageing is also recommended.

Other beneficial skin care ingredients are and to prevent dry skin in winter is antioxidants, which help in the prevention of hyperpigmentation and ageing.  Superb ingredients can be found in DermaFix’s ACC Vitamin C Gel. Another vitamin C form, contained in DermaFix’s Vitamin C Serum, plays an important antioxidant role in the skin, preventing the breakdown of collagen and increasing collagen production.

Our ACC Hyaluronic Gel contains Hyaluronic Acid, a chain of sugars essential to all good skin care, and acts by drawing water into the skin, helping to plump it up, thereby giving it volume and relief of dry skin in winter. Essential enzymes, which help to repair skin damage, function less efficiently in skin with a lower water content, therefore making extremely hyaluronic valuable in a good skin care routine. ACC Copper Peptide can be included in your skin care routine if you suffer from red and sensitised skin.
