Gifts under the Christmas tree, spending time with loved ones, and flurries of snow are all special moments to look forward to!
One thing which isn’t always a winter highlight is your complexion.
Are you suffering with dry, flaky, irritated or inflamed skin?
Extreme weather conditions and indoor heating are cold weather weapons, inflicting havoc on your skin.
Luckily, we have a few tricks up our sleeve for fixing your winter skincare woes. Let’s delve into our handy solutions.
Tip 1: Keep your skin hydrated
Cold outside air and indoor heating cause your skin to become dehydrated. To counteract this, keep your skin as hydrated as possible. Adding moisturising products into your beauty routine is easy.
One of the most effective hydrating products is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a special ingredient which can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water. When this ingredient is used in serum form, it delivers moisture to the deeper layers of the skin, hydrating your complexion to smooth, nourish, and rejuvenate.
Our Hydrate Hyaluronic Acid Serum is formulated with aloe, vitamin E and green tea to soothe and brighten. Any dry patches are restored back to normal and irritation is calmed.
Tip 2: Hydrate from within
It’s important to stay hydrated from within, especially in winter.
Drink water throughout the day and up your intake of omega 3 fatty acids, either by consuming oily fish, nuts, seeds or plant oils. These fatty acids boost the health of the skin barrier, helping it to hold onto moisture.
If you’re struggling to consume sources of omega 3, try taking a supplement.
Tip 3: Use a humidifier
When you use heating in your home or car, the dry air strips moisture from your skin. Dehydrated skin can cause itching, irritation and flaky patches.
Indoor heating feels super cosy, especially when it's freezing outside, but it’s a nightmare for your skin.
If you’re in a cold climate, invest in a humidifier to put moisture back into the air and prevent your skin from drying out.
Tip 4: Don’t forget your moisturiser
A moisturiser is a skincare essential. Layer on your moisturiser over your hyaluronic acid serum for extra nourishment.
