How to Revive Your Skin After a Cold Winter

Spring has finally sprung in the Northern Virginia area, bringing longer days and warm weather with it. We all welcome the change in seasons for several reasons, not least of which is that spring represents the perfect time to change up your skin care routine and revitalize after a long, dreary winter. Here are our favorite ways to refresh and invigorate skin to welcome the arrival of spring.

Vi Peel

Cold winter weather can dry out your skin, leaving it dull and tired-looking. The Vi Peel is a revolutionary procedure that is designed to exfoliate skin for a smoother, brighter complexion with minimal downtime and discomfort.

Specially formulated for a variety of skin tones and types, the Vi Peel is a powerful anti-aging treatment that contains a blend of vitamins and other ingredients to improve the clarity, tone, and texture of skin, with results visible within one week. Unlike other types of peel that only work to remove the top layers of skin, the Vi Peel promises to tackle skin problems like discoloration, enlarged pores, and premature signs of aging at the cellular level, promoting new collagen growth with quicker results than other medical-grade peels.

Even those with sensitive or otherwise damaged skin will see significant benefits from using the Vi Peel. It is gentle enough to use on the hands, neck, chest, and face, including the delicate skin around the eyes. This procedure is also ideal for anyone who wants superior skin renewal, but whose busy schedule does not allow them time for a lengthy healing process. The Vi Peel represents the ultimate in spring skin care convenience because you can resume daily activities immediately after your treatment.


It’s not just your imagination – numerous studies have shown you tend to look older both during and immediately after winter due to factors such as dehydrated skin and a lack of vitamin D. The area around your eyes and eyebrows is especially susceptible to signs of premature aging due to repetitive facial expressions such as frowning, smiling, and squinting. You can soften crow’s feet, frown lines, and brow furrows with neuromodulators like Xeomin® and Botox® Cosmetic.

Both these products are made from a highly purified version of botulinum toxin, which, when injected into the small muscles around the eye and brow area, goes to work temporarily blocking the signals that cause these muscles to contract. This minimally invasive procedure is ideal for anyone who is concerned that wrinkles and fine lines in the upper third of their faces are causing them to look older than they truly are.

Millions of people have used Botox® and Xeomin® to turn back the clock naturally, without undergoing surgery. If you are looking for a way to achieve a more youthful, alert appearance with minimal downtime and risk, these products are a perfect way to welcome spring.
