Winter Skin | Product Hit List
This time of year is one of my favorites since the clocks have been adjusted, Halloween and Bonfire Night are just around the horizon, and it is perfectly okay to spend nice evenings indoors. After such an unexpectedly hot summer, it is time to make some changes to our beauty and skincare regimens in preparation for the coming fall and winter…
When the weather becomes cooler, a cleanser in the form of a cream, balm, or oil may be quite soothing to skin that has been irritated by the wind. These sorts of cleansers, although having more luxurious compositions, are actually gentler on problem skin than foamy washes, which may cause dryness and tightness due to their ability to strip away moisture. The Decleor Aroma Cleanse Essential Cleansing Milk includes sweet almond oil, which is known to moisturize and soften all skin types. Additionally, this cleansing milk effectively eliminates any and all traces of makeup.
Topical exfoliants are the new toners; include them into your regimen immediately and you will see a change in your skin. Toners can be so much more than simply refreshing and relaxing; in fact, they can be so much more! After cleaning, using products containing AHA acids like Pixi Glow Tonic and P50, which work deep below the surface of the skin to clear out impurities, is the ideal technique to exfoliate the skin and remove debris, oil, and dead skin cells. It is recommended that you only use topical exfoliants once per day at first since they may be somewhat irritating to the skin. After that, you can gradually increase the number of times you apply them until your skin is used to the active components.
The application of a soothing cream, which delivers an immediate dose of moisture and a protective barrier against the elements, is perhaps the most pleasurable aspect of your wintertime skin care regimen and should definitely not be skipped! Richer formulations do not necessarily have to leave your skin feeling oily or clog up your pores; Tata Harper Repairative Moisturizer makes even flaky or dry skin feel silky smooth. Mango butter is responsible for the incredible smoothness, while safflower oleosomes are responsible for the protection of the skin. The revolutionary composition of Murad Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture locks in optimal moisture levels for up to 8 hours, softly plumping the skin for the look of a healthy and young complexion.
In the evening, go all out and give your skin the royal treatment by combining a Decleor Aromessence Serum with a rich night balm. Layering your skincare products at night is even more beneficial than doing so during the day, so take your time and build up the benefits of each step; don’t throw anything on and run off like you’ve got a train to catch. Your greatest protection against the damaging effects of the environment is to start each day with skin that is hydrated, cleansed, and healthy.
After cleansing the skin, apply the Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask on it, and then go do something relaxing, like watching a box set, for the next half an hour while the mask does its thing. While white willow extract removes dulling dead skin cells and pink clay detoxifies and cleanses congested skin, pink clay may also be used alone.
If you are worried about dryness, you should follow this treatment with a hydrating treatment such as the Decleor Hydra Floral Multi-Protection Mask.
I have already begun to realize that I can no longer get away with not wearing eye creams. The baby skin beneath my eyes has gotten drier and more sensitive, therefore I will be protecting it from the weather. I have already begun to notice that I can no longer get away with not wearing eye creams. Decleor Excellence De L’Age Regenerating Eye And Lip Cream is a rich and nourishing cream that plumps and nourishes the sensitive skin around the eyes. This lightweight cream penetrates into the skin rapidly, making it ideal for use under makeup as well as on its own.
All through the year, lips have a constant need for more moisture, but during the winter, they are particularly susceptible to damage. Beeswax Lip Balm Tube from Burt’s Bees is a lifesaver for dry, cracked lips. It contains coconut oil and peppermint oil, both of which rapidly soothe and soften the lips while beeswax provides moisture.
I prefer to have a few different hand creams on hand so that I may choose the one with the right texture and scent for the moment (I’m a product addict, so don’t bother trying to convert me). Use SteamCream, a basic moisturizing cream with orange blossom water and rich glycerin, if your hands are in excellent condition but could use a little more moisture. This cream has both of these ingredients. You may use SteamCream not just on your face but also on your body, and it works well for skin that is both sensitive and prone to eczema.
Burt’s Bees Hand Salve is a thick, therapeutic salve that powerfully hydrates and soothes chapped skin with botanical herbs and beeswax. If your hands have been damaged by the weather, consider using this salve.
