SKINNEY Medspa’s Jolie Martin recommends starting with a gentle cleanser like Clarins Cleansing Milk ($30) or Clarins Gentle Foaming Cleanser ($22).

SKINNEY Medspa’s co-founder Adriana Martino says to exfoliate regularly using SKINNEY Medspa’s Heat-Activated Thermal Scrub ($55). This exfoliator really polishes your skin, removing dead-dull skin off of the outer layer of skin leaving your skin feeling renewed and fresh. TIP: Use in the shower when your pores are open most, for a deeper product penetration.

Adriana also recommends using a Hyaluronic Acid serum like SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel (available at SKINNEY Medspa – $74) to lock in moisture and to help keep a barrier from the harsh winter elements. 

The next step: treat yourself! Adriana recommends getting a hydrating facial. “Who doesn’t love getting a facial? This luxe treatment will provide masks and serums for your skin that provides deep moister that your skin lacks during the winter months.” Finish off with a Glycolic Peel to buff away all of the environmental impurities 

Have severally dry skin? Get a deeper peel like SKINNEY Medspa’s VI Peel ($450). This medium peel is packed with vitamins that nourish your skin. Your skin will begin to flake, and in a few short days your skin will look like a dewy and hydrated. 

Jolie says to always finish your routine with an eye cream and lip care. Her favorite all in one is Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Skin Cream ($19.50).
