Hydrate your skin
HYDRATION INSIDE AND OUT!! lack of humidity during the winter months, skin can easily become dehydrated. Once that happens, many concerns could become apparent like uneven texture, redness and breakouts. Adding a hydrator to your daily skincare routine prevents skin dehydration.” dont forget we also need to drink water in the winter.
Hydrators, like cyto luxe hydration, are lighter than a moisturizer and penetrate further into the skin. Use 3-4 drops before you moisturize.
If your skin has a tendency to dry out midday, rehydrate with a spritz of a hydrating mist. Misting both refreshes the skin and revives your makeup. Look for ingredients like Sodium Hyaluronate and Deuterium Oxide.
Try a facial oil
Oil is a scary word in the beauty industry, skin-healthy oils can work wonders. While hydrators boost water content in your skin, facial oils regulate your skin’s oil production. Oil can be used on dry or oily skin to soften and rejuvenate. not just oily skin. I would highly recommend mixing a face oil with your favorite moisturizer. “Adding a few drops of a facial oil to your moisturizer will nourish and condition the skin, also give you an additional protective layer against the harsher climate.” wind and rain as well as sun and especially if you are planning to go skiing protect your face against the uv light and wear wrap around shades to protect your eyes.
While you’re at it, apply the oil to your cuticles for soft hands and do not forget your neck…
Wear lip balm through out the day …
After you brush your teeth in the morning, apply a light layer of lip balm Allow it to sink in before you apply your makeup. This will help your lips stay supple, even when using matte lipsticks.
Before you go to bed, coat your lips with a nourishing lip balm so your lips don’t dry out overnight. Need something heavy duty? for extremely chapped skin.
Many people experience seasonal skin sensitivity brought on by the change of seasons. Irritable skin needs a little extra TLC, so look for products labeled “gentle” or “sensitive” Calming, anti-inflammatory ingredients like Aloe and cucumber are good to look out for.
