It’s Wintertime, Be Kind to Your Skin. How You Can Protect Your Skin This Holiday Season

Wintertime can be a magical time. The weather starts to change, the holidays start approaching, and it’s time to dust out the fireplace and bring out all the warm blankets. As great as winter may be for baking cookies and hunting for the houses with the best Christmas lights, it’s not always great for your skin.

The frigid temperatures, dry air from heaters, and scalding hot showers can all negatively affect your skin. Itchy, flaky, redness begins to occur, and when left unchecked, these kinds of conditions can lead to breakouts and premature wrinkles.

If you want to keep your skin looking flawless, you need to protect your skin this holiday season. Thankfully, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryan Armijo and his team have just what you need to keep your skin looking merry and bright.


Dr. Armijo is excited to introduce SkinMedica, a medical-grade skin care line that can enhance your daily routine and improve the look and feel of your skin. Having a consistent skincare routine with products that work with your unique skin chemistry is key to keeping your skin glowing this winter. This dermatologist manufactured line offers products to treat hyperpigmentation, acne, dehydrated skin, and many other common skin concerns.

Treatments: The Gift to Your Skin That Keeps on Giving

A great partner to your skin care regime is treating your skin to treatments. Along with their skin care line, Dr. Armijo offers a variety of skin care treatments, including chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing microneedling, and an injectable treatment called Slimshot.

Chemical Peels

A chemical peel uses organic acids to exfoliate sections of rough, dead skin and speed up the rate of cellular renewal. This procedure causes aged, damaged skin from those harsh winter winds to flake off, allowing a healthy new layer of skin to form in its place. Chemical peels are a proven way to treat stubborn acne, melasma, age spots, excessive freckling, wrinkles, scars, and signs of UV damage. Peels come in a variety of different strengths for light rejuvenation or deep restoration.


If firmer, smoother, and more hydrated skin is on your Christmas wish list, microneedling is an excellent non-invasive treatment. Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, stimulates new collagen production by gently rolling tiny needles over the skin’s surface, creating micro-injuries to the skin. The body triggers a natural healing response without chemicals or direct abrasion, resulting in minimal irritation and downtime.


The Slimshot treatment contains several vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants necessary for optimum liver function, metabolic performance, and skin health. The Slimshot replenishes B vitamins levels that often deplete during the harsh winter months, resulting in increased energy and can stimulate weight loss. The Slimshot can also boost mood and alleviate hormonal issues so that you can partake in all of your favorite winter activities.
