Winter has officially arrived but what does that mean for your skin?
In short, it means you may need to take additional measures to keep your skin glowing during these drier months.
After 40, we naturally lose Hyaluronic Acid so we tend to be at more risk for water loss.
This is why it's so important to lock moisture in, especially if you live in a drier climate.
When choosing a good moisturizer, opt for one with humectants and oils, like our Whipped Olive Oil Face Butter, that will bring moisture to the cells of your skin and help you retain it.
A good moisturizer is essential for supporting your barrier and helping you prevent signs of pre-mature aging, like crepey skin.
Here are a few of my beauty secrets for keeping my skin in tip top shape throughout the winter.
I hope it helps you, too!
1) Use a humidifier when possible. Not only is it great for clearing the air, but it can assist with creating a gentler environment for your skin, too.
2) Layering is a great way to add extra moisture without changing your entire routine. Instead of ditching your normal go-to moisturizer that you love, consider adding a quality Hyaluronic Acid Serum and/or a luxury facial oil, like our Glow Oil to help lock your moisture in.
3) Avoid powders that can absorb oil and make your skin appear drier. Try pressing oil off your skin with a soft tissue, instead.
Last but not least, always remember the delicate thin tissue under your EYES. Our Eye Dream of Coffee is wonderful for dry, mature skin because it helps constrict blood vessels that may help lessen the appearance of dark circles and puffiness.
If your eyes need a little bit more moisturizing love, our Restorative PM Eye Cream is a wonderful addition to your nightly routine to help you restore, renew and revitalize your entire eye area!
And remember your sunscreen! You may not be outside as much when it's cold, but it's still important to remember to wear it during the winter months when you're outdoors. It's your #1 way to prevent pre-mature aging. ;)
The more you know the more you glow!
