Embracing Winter Facials with Eminence & OxyGeneo in Calgary

In the quest for youthful, radiant skin, the journey doesn't pause with the changing seasons. In fact, each season, especially winter, plays a crucial role in determining the health and appearance of our skin. For women over 30, this becomes even more significant and it's never too late to start taking better care of your skin. The combination of Eminence Organic Skincare's natural touch with the advanced technology of OxyGeneo facials offers a perfect solution, particularly during the harsh winter months in Calgary.

The Magic of Winter Facials

Winter, with its crisp air and cozy nights, can be harsh on our skin. This season demands extra care and attention, making regular facials not just a luxury, but a necessity, especially living in Calgary, Canada.

Why Winter Facials?

  1. Combat Dryness: Cold weather strips moisture, leading to dry, flaky skin. Facials provide deep hydration, essential for maintaining skin health.

  2. Boost Blood Circulation: The warmth and massage techniques used in facials improve blood flow, reviving dull winter skin.

  3. Prepare for the Seasons: Regular winter facials set a healthy foundation for the skin, preparing it for the transitions of the coming seasons.

OxyGeneo: A Technological Marvel in Skincare

OxyGeneo is an innovative 3-in-1 facial treatment that combines gentle exfoliation, natural skin oxygenation, and deep nourishment. Here's how it makes a difference, especially in winter:

  • Exfoliation: Removes dead skin, allowing better absorption of moisturizing products.

  • Oxygenation: Stimulates blood flow, enhancing the skin's natural healing process and resilience against cold weather.

  • Nourishment: Deep infusion of nutrients revitalizes and hydrates the skin.

Eminence Organic Skincare: Nature’s Best for Your Skin Eminence products, known for their natural and organic ingredients, complement the OxyGeneo treatment by providing gentle yet effective care.

Recommended Must Have Winter Products:

  1. Facial Recovery Oil: A winter staple, this oil deeply nourishes and revitalizes the skin.

  2. Moisturizers: Essential for locking in moisture and protecting the skin from harsh winter conditions.

  3. Hydrating Masks: Weekly masks maintain hydration and address specific winter skin concerns.

The Importance of Regular Seasonal Facials

Regular facials, especially in winter, are crucial for maintaining skin health. They offer numerous benefits:

  • Personalized Care: Tailored to your skin's specific needs, adapting to seasonal changes.

  • Preventive Maintenance: Regular care prevents long-term damage, keeping your skin youthful.

  • Deep Nourishment: Professional treatments offer deeper nourishment than daily routines.

A Winter Week of Skincare!

Let’s break down an ideal winter week for your skincare routine:

  • Monday: Begin with a gentle Eminence cleanser to start the week fresh.

  • Tuesday: Exfoliation with Strawberry Dermafoliant or StoneCrop Exfoliant or the Firm Skin overnight Peel

  • Wednesday: Midweek Hydrating Mask: A personal favourite is Age Corrective or Overnight Kombucha Mask

  • Friday: End the week with an Eminence hydrating moisturizer specifically for your skin.

On the other days you can mix between exfoliation, masking or moisturizing, depending on your skin type and skin care concerns.
