A change in seasons means making small changes in your clients' beauty routines. Winter calls for extra skincare T.L.C. as a result of the cool, dry air that is dehydrating to skin. 

Even though skin is looking especially fragile in winter, exfoliating is key in buffing skin into its full potential.

"While winter may not seem like the appropriate time to deep clean the skin, it is important to remember that the combination of cold, windy weather and dry heat inside most homes and workplaces significantly dehydrates the skin," says Susanna DiSotto, director of marketing for Satin Smooth. "This can reduce the rate of cellular turnover, sloughing and toxin release that our skin should naturally accomplish."

Besides just removing dry, dead skin, advanced cleansing and exfoliating benefits your clients' skin by improving skin texture, balancing oil production, reducing redness, reducing pore size and improving skincare product penetration.
