We’re highlighting three products that are essential for Winter. Just because we’re bundled up in sweaters and scarves doesn’t mean that we should forget about our skin until summer. Following these simple steps will keep you more comfortable all winter, and allow you to show smoother, fresher skin when the warm weather returns.
In the winter it is a good idea to switch to an oil-based moisturizer and moisturize frequently. The more oil a moisturizer contains the more effectively it protects against moisture loss. Moisturizers that come as an ointment contain the most oil and form a protective layer on the skin that makes them more “moisturizing” than creams and lotions.
Oil-based Moisturizer –
Moisturizing Complex by IS Clinical: Moisturizing Complex was created to work as a shield for the skin against environmental damages, it moisturizes and hydrates your skin, layers deep! It contains Jojoba Oil which is a natural oil used to help prevent water from escaping the skin, and Glycerin which absorbs and holds moisture. It is a heavier moisturizer, dry or mature skin.
If your facial skin is uncomfortably dry, avoid using harsh peels, masks, and alcohol-based toners or astringents, all of which can strip vital oil from your skin. Instead, find a cleansing milk or mild foaming cleanser, a toner with no alcohol, and masks that are “deeply hydrating,” rather than clay-based, which tends to draw moisture out of the face.
Foaming Cleanser –
Cleansing Gel by Exuvience: This face wash contains no artificial fragrances, but its natural fruit acids and botanical extracts, give it a light fruity smell. Great for most skin types but it is not ideal for someone with dry, sensitive skin. Also an excellent makeup remover, one pump with the foaming action…and you’re set!
Don’t forget the sunscreen. Snow if more reflective than sand, making winter sunscreen as important as summer protection. Look for a SPF 30+ sunscreen with an oily, moisturizing cream. If you are unsure of which product to use, ask your dermatologist.
SPF 30 with Moisturizer –
Elta SPF 30 – UV Facial with Moisturizer: This sunscreen was specifically designed to provide moisturizing UV protection for the face, either alone or under makeup. It is a light, fluffy moisturizing base with an elegant feel. Great for all skin types.
