What To Do on a Chilly, Winter Day in Cleveland? Get a Facial of Course!

The snow is really coming down in Cleveland, Ohio today and the wind is especially brutal! With the harsh breeze (ha – “breeze”, it sure feels more like being stuck in a subzero wind storm!), it is especially important to keep your skin protected and moisturized during the endless winter months. The frigid temperatures and constant exposure dry out skin and can cause irritation – I feel like I can never put on enough face cream during the winter! Getting regular facials are an easy way to combat the cold and are beneficial for the overall health and wellness of your facial skin. In fact, getting facials can help reverse the effects of weather damage and leave skin looking its best all year round.

Come stop by Shawn Paul Salon and treat yourself to one of our four unique facials! Our amazing esthetician, Mercedes, is here on Thursday, Friday and Saturday – no better way to end your week.

~ Mercedes’ recommendation to beat winter blues?

  • Always apply toner before moisturizer.
  • Oily skin? Don’t be afraid of moisturizer! Using a daily moisturizer can actually help regulate your skins oil production.
  • Going outside? Still use sunscreen! Even though it is winter, UV rays are still a thing.

~ Which of our facials does Mercedes recommend for winter dryness and irritation?

The Rockefeller! Why? It is our top – level facial and provides the most hydrating experience. This facial comes with your choice between either a Lactic Acid Peel and a Pumpkin Enzyme Mask. All of our facials use products from Good Medicine Beauty Lab – a small batch skin care line that we also have sale! For especially dry skin, Mercedes recommends the Rain Replenishing Oil Cleaner and Clarity Awakening Face Cream.
