If you’re starting to feel more crocodile than cuddle bug this winter, your skin is in dire need of a hydration boost! Faced by a daily onslaught of harsh winter elements and dry indoor heat, your skin can quickly become parched, dehydrated, and irritated. Fortunately, the look of radiant, supple skin is within your reach this winter by simply adding more hydrating products to your skin care regimen.
Here are a few hydrating tips to help replenish and revitalize the look of your skin all winter long!
How To Wash Your Face In The Winter
What you use to wash your skin, in the coldest months of the year, is just as important as the skin care products you put on it. We recommend a pre-cleanser that lifts and removes excess surface oil and debris, followed by a moisturizing mild cleanser for a fresh clean feel that doesn’t overstrip and disrupt the benefits of your skin’s natural pH balance.
It’s important to choose a face wash that is formulated to remove makeup and surface impurities while preserving the benefits of the skin’s natural acid mantel. Look for cleansing products containing Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil. Key skin-soothing ingredients include pro-vitamin B5, a highly effective moisturizer that helps to calm the look of redness, olive oil PEG-7 Ester, a natural humectant, and hydrolysed oats.
TIP: To help prime the skin for your moisturizer, add a botanical infused moisturizing toner with a blend of extracts including: Sage, Yarrow, Mother of Thyme, Chamomile, Rosemary and Marshmallow.
Super Moisturizer For Dry Skin
Day in, day out, the unforgiving cold and relentless indoor heat zap moisture from your skin, so it’s vital to replace the effects of this lost moisture and get ahead of the vicious dehydrating cycle with daily moisturizer application. When added to your regular skin care routine, super moisturizers will deliver a concentrated burst of vitamin-enriched hydration. During the day, and perfect for under your makeup, are oil capsules to help create a smooth canvas for your foundation to glide over, and these little gems may also protect your skin from the damaging effects of free radicals!
Other replenishing products to consider adding to your skin care shelf this winter include: a serum containing a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, the body’s natural moisture magnet, which is scientifically proven to hold up to 1,000 times its own weight in water; and a powerful moisturizing night cream, a couple of evenings per week, to help improve the appearance of textural problems associated with dehydration.Our stockists are here to guide and help you discover the ideal hydrating formulations for the look and feel of your skin!
