Winter Skin Saviours

When it comes to Skin Saviours, the rtwskin team knows a thing or two. Whether it’s rehydration, brightening, tightening, or lifting you’re after, you’re sure to find something you like the sound of below.

Dr Nina says “Retinol is key for renewing skin cells, boosting radiance, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and improving texture and tone. This is the best time of year to use Retinol products, but make sure you still apply a good SPF to protect against harmful UV rays. We have a few options available at rtwskin, such as Obagi 360 1% Retinol, or the ZO Skin Brightener, which comes in 0.5% or 1%, which I recommend using in the evenings, once or twice a week to begin with. This will help to brighten your complexion and clear away pigmentation left over from Summer. In terms of treatments for Winter, I recommend VI Derm Chemical Peels for deep pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and texture improvement, as well as CO2 Laser Resurfacing treatment which is great for those looking to improve texture, scarring, fine lines, and wrinkles. You can read more about these treatments on our website here:

Dr Fatima says “I always recommend to my patients that they use a good quality, high SPF, even during the Winter months. I find the Obagi Sun Shield Matte SPF50 works very well, without feeling heavy on the skin.”

Dr Claudia says “The most important item in your skincare arsenal is undoubtedly your SPF. It’s easy to forget in the Winter but protecting your skin against skin cancer and UV damage is a year-round commitment. The light coming through the window of the train, the sun on your face as you walk home from the office, the morning light on the school run – all these incidental exposures of UV light add up and cause fine lines and sagging skin. My favourite SPF is the ZO Skin Health Smart Tone SPF50. It is light on the skin, perfect for wearing under make-up, easily absorbed, and doesn’t leave that chalky residue. My Winter Skin Saviour treatment is our fantastic BioRePeel chemical peel, which helps improve texture, tone, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles – basically, everything I need for my skin after Summer!”

Independent Nurse Prescriber Zita says “This is the perfect time of year to get rid of hyperpigmentation/pigmented lesions/melasma and rough, uneven skin, lax or loose skin, and fine lines and wrinkles. My skin saviour is the range of Obagi systems, designed to help correct hyperpigmentation and help you to achieve healthier, younger-looking skin.”

Nurse Aksana says “I’m a huge fan of the Dr Levy R3 Cell Matrix Mask. It is packed with skin-essential vitamins, and leaves my skin smooth, replenished, and radiant. It is 100% vegan and cruelty free, contains no silicones, oils, or artificial colours, and can be used over the whole face including the delicate eye area. I use it after cleansing with the Dr Levy 3Deep Cell Renewal Cleanser, which gently exfoliates and resurfaces the skin before I apply my mask.”

Lead Beauty Therapist Zivile says “BioRePeel is my favourite skin treatment, especially for Autumn/Winter. It targets all my skin concerns – anti-ageing, pigmentation, fine lines, skin tone and texture. I think of it as a cocktail for my skin. In terms of products, SPF, SPF, SPF! Even in the Winter months, it’s so important we remember to protect our skin against harmful UV rays. My favourite SPF is the VI Derm SPF 50+, which is available to buy from the clinic for £38.”

Beauty Therapist Arianna says “I swear by the Obagi Daily Hydro-Drops. These light, refreshing drops provide all-day moisture without any oily residue, which is great for break-out prone skin. They are light enough to be applied under SPF and makeup, and also give the skin a beautiful boost of radiance.”

Beauty Therapist Dana says “As somebody with a slightly oilier skin, I find that the ZO Skin Health Complexion Renewal Pads help to keep my skin clean and fresh throughout the day. These pads are great to use on the go, to remove excess oil, refresh the skin, and help to increase cell turnover.”

Practice Manager Lauren T says “My go-to treatment is the Obagi Radiance Peel at this time of year. I like to have one as a post-summer reset for my skin, reducing pigmentation, and tightening and brightening my skin in time for the party season. I also absolutely love the Obagi Professional Vitamin C 15%, which I use every morning to boost radiance.”

Senior Front of House Receptionist Lauren W says “I love the Hydrate moisturise by Obagi. It is very gentle and has no fragrance, which can sometimes irritate my sensitive skin. The Hydrate has been a great product for me alongside the Obagi Nu-Derm system, which has made a big difference to my acne-prone skin.”

Front of House and Marketing Executive Shelley-Jo says “My year-round go-to skincare product is the ZO Skin Health Calming Toner. My skin feels so clean and fresh after each use, I use it morning and evening to remove the last traces of make-up and rebalance my skin.”

Front of House Receptionist Amy says “I always have my leg laser hair removal topped up during Autumn/Winter – this is the perfect time to do it as we naturally have less UV exposure. I like to head into Spring without the dreaded ‘have I shaved my legs?’ drama!”
