The San Francisco Bay Area is known for its year-round sun, mild temperatures, and refreshing breezes, and you won’t find a more comfortable climate anywhere on the planet. But there’s a noticeable shift in the weather during the winter, and our skin is the first to feel the effects.
At Earthy Ruby in Cupertino, we specialize in restoring dry winter skin back to its youthful state with rejuvenating facials. Here’s a look at what winter does to your face and what we can do to fix it.
If you’ve noticed that your skin looks dull and lackluster, it may be due to the season. Winter brings on several changes that impact your skin.
We may not get snow in Cupertino, but the temperature drops enough to make us bundle up when we go outdoors. Extra clothing layers mean increased friction on your skin, and cold temperatures zap the moisture in your skin.
When the wind kicks up, it wicks away our skin’s moisture and leaves us with a dry, flaky complexion.
Indoor heating and fireplaces suck the humidity out of the air and rob our skin of essential oils, creating a perfect climate for dull, dry skin.
These conditions stress your skin and damage the hydrolipidic barrier, depleting the natural oils essential for protecting your skin against pathogens and moisture loss.
You can prevent winter skin damage by staying hydrated, using a room humidifier, limiting exposure to heat sources, and taking warm, not hot, showers. But, despite your best efforts, you may still end up with dry, flaky winter skin that needs a helping hand. That’s why we offer a comprehensive lineup of facials that address your unique needs.
The deluxe facial is our base facial, but it’s far from basic. This luxurious treatment pampers you for 75 minutes as you relax and let the stress of the season melt away. Our expert technicians customize your treatment to address your unique skin condition. Your deluxe facial may include:
Because stress damages your skin, we skillfully massage your neck, shoulders, arms, and hands to calm your mind and body and enhance the effectiveness of the treatment.
If your skin has begun to lose the war with gravity and is showing signs of sagging and drooping, our radiofrequency (RF) facial can help. In addition to the benefits of the deluxe facial, this treatment uses RF energy to stimulate a response in the deeper layers of your skin. It’s completely noninvasive and painless as it triggers an increase in the production of collagen below the surface.
The RF facial lasts 90 minutes, but over time, the new collagen provides a structure that plumps, smooths, and tightens your skin for months to come.
Whatever is in the air lands on your face and clogs your pores. If you haven’t had it deep-cleaned in a while, you may have days or weeks of pollution gumming up your skin. Our detox facial focuses on purifying your skin using natural ingredients that gently but thoroughly clean your skin and enable it to function at its best. This deep-cleansing facial lasts 90 minutes and leaves you with a bright, healthy glow.
Your eyes are the windows to your soul, so keep them bright and expressive with our amazing eye treatment. Our experts treat your delicate eye tissue with nourishing serums and advanced treatments that erase undereye bags and wrinkles. After 90 minutes, you walk away with rested, younger-looking eyes.
Can’t decide which facial you need? Why choose? Our platinum facial package combines the deluxe, radiofrequency, detox, and amazing eye treatments with an LED light therapy treatment to give you a complete, 120-minute facial experience.
