Tips & Tricks for Adjusting Fussy Skin
Rising temperatures after a rough winter often elicit a sigh of relief. Those with fussy skin types might end up with a few concerns on their mind, though. Oil production tends to increase with rising temperature, and particularly rising humidity. Here in New York City, the day to day irritants can really do a number on a sensitive skin type when the weather is changing. You might find that you need to change your routine to adapt to the changing demands on your skin. Here, we’ve outlined the three easy steps you can take to combat post-winter woes!
1. Listen to your skin.
Your skin tells you what it needs by its appearance. Are you dealing with flakes? The solution is simple (and it even rhymes!) — to combat flakes, exfoliate! Overdoing it can lead to more flakes, but utilizing a gentle exfoliant a couple times a week can really make a difference. You and your dermatologist (and remember, you can always contact us to schedule a consult!) can determine the best type of exfoliant for you and your skin type. A simple rule of thumb is that using the most gentle exfoliant possible is best.
2. Change up your routine.
While dramatic changes aren’t necessary and could potentially ignite a breakout, swapping out certain products in your routine to suit the weather can make a world of difference. Whether you substitute your Facial Radiance Pads for FAB®’s new Skin Rescue Blemish Patrol Pads or change your gentle winter cleanser to one designed specifically to draw impurities from your skin.
3. Don’t forget that good skin is often a sign of good health!
While thorough skincare is essential to delaying signs of aging and improving overall clarity, your health is also a big factor in how your skin looks. Having your annual check-ups, preventive care and keeping a solid exercise and diet routine should be your first line of defense against early aging. Remember, you can book all these services right here at New York Wellness & MediSpa!
These rules to better skin and brighter beauty are easy to follow and easy to individualize, but you can also trust our professionals to give you an honest assessment of your skin type and how to best proceed as well. Either way, your skin will thank you for listening to your body’s natural hints.
Introducing our Spring/Summer 2014 Collection
Spring is here!
Spring is here! While trees blooming and climbing temperatures are an event to celebrate, your spring cleaning list should include both preventive care and a little TLC for your skin after a tough winter. If you’re due for your yearly examination, don’t hesitate to contact us and schedule your appointment today! If shoveling your way through this long, frustrating winter has you feeling like you could use a blood pressure check, we also offer preventive cardiology services on-site. For a full rundown on our services, check out our site where you can conveniently book online as well! Remember that feeling good has never looked better — and between our preventive care and cosmetic services here at New York Wellness and Medispa, you can have it all.
Spring also means remembering your follow-ups. If you’ve had (or are interested in!) Botox, Juvederm or any of our other cosmetic services, please contact us and schedule your follow-ups to ensure continuous care and lasting results.
For those who are eyeing their summer-wear nervously after gaining a few winter pounds, check out the physician guided weight loss program Take Shape For Life. Under the direction of Dr. Jill Baron, our expert in healthy weight loss and lifestyle change. Weight can make a big impact on your quality of life, so like we say around here at New York Wellness and Medispa, make sure you’re feeling well on the inside… then treat yourself to feeling better on the outside!
As always, we only offer the very best products to ensure your skin is as radiant as your zest for your health. For dry skin in need of a quenching, our 5-in-1 series is a crowd favorite for restoring the skin’s protective barrier, easing hyperpigmentation from blemishes and scars, and repairing dry skin. For others, spring may require a different approach to skin care. Climbing temperatures means ditching the coat, but it also may mean war for those with oily and combination skin. Changing temperatures, heat and sun exposure can wreak real havoc for blemish-prone skin.
What if there were a first line of defense to care for and prevent future breakouts for oily and combination skin? Your dream of clear skin is now fulfilled, because First Aid Beauty® has created a line of products designed especially for problem-prone skin! Our Skin Rescue series blows the competition out of the water with botanical extracts and a proprietary blend of antioxidants.
Prevention is key to battling breakouts. FAB®’s newest line includes Skin Rescue Cleanser with Red Clay, a deep-reaching and highly effective cleanser that soothes irritated skin as it draws toxins out of the skin. Follow up with Skin Rescue Blemish Patrol Pads to tone, exfoliate and minimize the appearance of active break-outs. During your down-time, repairing blemish-prone skin has never been easier with FAB®’s Skin Rescue Purifying Mask with Red Clay. This harnesses the power of nature to deliver a potent, yet soothing remedy to skin in need of some individualized attention.
Please contact us at the office with whatever individual needs you may have, and our staff will go above and beyond to ensure to ensure those needs are taken care of with seamless professionalism. The services mentioned above are only some of what we offer, and you might find yourself surprised by the fantastic array of services designed to meet your needs.

Remember, make sure you’re feeling well on the inside… then treat yourself to feeling better on the outside! We’ll guide you every step of the way.
