Project Best Life | Skin Care in the Harsh Winter Months

In Western New York, we face the reality of dry skin every winter, without fail. From the dry cold winter air outside to the dry air from our furnaces inside, it’s important to think about staying hydrated in the dry season. Keeping your skin and your body hydrated and healthy has many benefits.

Dehydrated skin could crack and create a pathway for germs and irritants to enter your body. Plus hydrating your skin slows down the appearance of aging, helps prevent acne, and is just less itchy and more comfortable.

Of course the first step to hydration is drinking plenty of water and hydrating beverages and foods. But if you need a boost, Project Best Life spoke to several experts in the area who know exactly how to help!


Averi Wachowiak gives Jordan a hydra treatment

If you’re looking to revamp your home care regimen or just add in a few more hydrating products to your routine, Elite Esthetics is here for you. The studio opened in 2020 and offers everything from lash lifts to enzyme therapy, and of course the Face Reality program.

“I tell all of my clients whether they’re in acne boot camp or not that Face Reality is a great line for just basic skin care in general” Owner Averi Wachowiak said. This includes products like cleanser, toner, moisturizer, etc. Face Reality is often focused on acne-prone clients, but the studio has another esthetician who partners with the Eminence line which Averi says is a great option for those who are less concerned with acne and more concerned with the appearance of aging and general hydration.

The two products from the Face Reality line that Averi recommends for the dry season are Hydrabalance hydrating gel and the Hydracalm Mask. When you’re feeling really dry you can create a “Hydrabalance sandwich,” as Averi calls

Ways to Save on your skincare in Central Georgia

Here are six tips on how you can save money on your skin care routine.

WARNER ROBINS, Ga. — People strive to have good hygiene every day. From brushing your teeth to washing your face. If you’re eager to have a skincare routine but don’t know where to start, here are 6 tips to improve your everyday skincare routine.

1. Don’t waste product

Many cleansers, moisturizers, and cream products recommend a pea to dime size amount of product. If you buy a big jar or tube of a skin product, you’ll run the risk of running out sooner and having to buy more. Hailey Haywood, master cosmetologist at Spa 22 in Warner Robins says you don’t need too much. 

“Just depending on your skin type, I think skin is a lot of trial and error so you definitely want to see what works best for you, but you aren’t going to want to overload your face with product. And in the long run that saves you money.,” Haywood said.

2. Go with generic body wash

You don’t have to buy the name brand that can cost almost $15. They all lather, make you smell nice, and hydrate the skin. However, brands like Sauve can be found at Walmart for around $3.

3. Use petroleum jelly

Maybe you’ve heard of Vaseline but you can use it for dry skin and small cuts. It has many uses like treating diaper rashes, preventing chaffing, and rehydrating nails.

4. Try the three-step approach

Many skin care routines include a cleanser, an exfoliant, a serum, a spot treatment, an eye cream, a toner, a moisturizer, and a protectant. However, the American Academy of Dermatology suggests having a cleanser, moisturizer, and protectant. Sarah Le’Valley says you can go to a two-step which
