  • Saving your winter skin

    With the chill of winter comes a tendency for our skin to get a little, well, flaky. We talked with Pam Martinie, esthetician and assistant manager at Pharmaca’s Seattle-Wallingford store about battling the dry skin blues.

    Step 1: Hydrate
    We all know water is vital to keeping skin hydrated, but here’s a special tip from Pam: Drink an extra glass of room-temperature water right before bed. Even if it’s hard to get down 8 glasses throughout the day, Pam says, “make the most of the resting period at night, when cell repair is going on.”

    Step 2: Eat right
    Give your skin a fighting chance by adding in the good fats found in salmon, almonds and avocados, says Pam. And add a good dose of vitamin A—necessary for skin tissue repair—through leafy greens like chard and collard greens.

    Step 3: Nourish
    Supplement with an essential-fatty-acid rich fish oil to “lubricate skin from the inside out.” Pam likes Pharmax or Nordic Naturals fish oils. She also suggests adding a probiotic like Pharmax Maintenance to boost gut health, which is linked to the health of our skin.

    Step 4: Cleanse
    Counter-intuitive as it sounds, “jane iredale has this magic mitt that allows you to wash your face without cleanser,” says Pam. “If you’re extra sensitive to cleansers, use the magic mitt at night to keep skin supple and soft without stripping it.” If you can handle liquid cleansers, Pam recommends milky products like Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Milk or one of Primavera's Cream Cleansers. In addition, Pam suggests sloughing dead skin cells with a good scrub at least once a week. She likes Astara Daily Refining Scrub for its polishing effects.

    Step 5: Moisturize
    For the driest cases, Pam will suggest a serious moisture infusion with Dr. Hauschka Moisturizing Mask or Primavera Multi-Purpose Face Oil. “Wear that to bed once or twice a week to help the skin feel more balanced,” she says. For everyday use, try Jurlique Balancing Day Care Cream.
