Dr. Watkins’ Winter Skin Faves Kansas City, MO
It’s finally March and the end of winter is in our sights! Our skin may not be feeling the same enthusiasm though, after several long, cold winter months. The team at aNū Aesthetics & Optimal Wellness is committed to helping you discover healthy, glowing and hydrated skin at any age. This is why we’re excited to share some of Dr. Cristyn Watkins’ favorite skincare products for treating dry winter skin! Here’s what you need to know about these clinically proven products designed to refresh and re-hydrate your skin ahead of the warmer weather.
aNū Hydrating Pumpkin Mask
Our very own Hydrating Pumpkin Mask, by Dr. Watkins herself, features a powerful, effective combination of enzymes and antioxidants from pumpkin extract, as well as vitamins and minerals, in a rich, self-warming application. This mask reduces pore size, cleanses, hydrates and rejuvenates your skin. This mild formula contains kaolin to absorb dirt and excess oils, and pumpkin enzymes to stimulate cellular regeneration and refine pore size. Time-released vitamin E micro-beads activate upon skin contact, replenishing your skin’s moisture. Our Hydrating Pumpkin Mask is a great option for those interested in anti-aging or reducing hyperpigmentation and acne. Your skin will be left feeling intensely hydrated, refined and overall radiant!
Alastin® Regenerating Skin Nectar
If you’re a fan of advanced skin treatments, whether via laser, microneedling, peels, IPL or more, we bet you’ll also be a big fan of Alastin’s Regenerating Skin Nectar with TriHex Technology®. This medical-grade formula is designed to support and strengthen skin, and can enhance procedure outcomes when used before skin-rejuvenating treatments. When you use it after your favorite skin treatments, it can support faster recovery and improved results! Regenerating Skin Nectar does all of this while supporting the production of healthy new collagen and elastin, which offers long-term benefits for younger-looking, glowing skin.
aNū MD Intensive Moisture Cream
Our Intensive Moisture Cream features cactus and yeast extracts, and is uniquely designed to significantly reduce skin irritation, which can be caused by AHAs and retinoids. This product soothes skin, removes irritation and reduces redness, for a more evenly toned and healthy-looking complexion. It is even formulated with four different ceramides to restore healthy skin barrier function, which helps your skin maintain its natural structure. This decreases your skin’s water loss and increases natural moisturizing factors, thereby hydrating and protecting your skin while helping it recover after exposure to stress.
Those are just a few of Dr. Watkins’ favorite skincare products for helping your skin recover from the cold, dry winter air — and we can’t wait to share them with you!
