We are half way through Winter and it’s a perfect time to discuss the impact of the season on our largest organ… the skin!
Have you noticed that heating, hot showers and the cold air of Winter all dehydrate our skin? The skin may feel tight, more fine lines appear, rashes or breakouts occur due to increased sensitivity and imbalance.
Along with pollution, colds and flu, we need to support our skin’s health to boost hydration levels. This will restore our natural barrier, make our skin feel better, and certainly look better and younger!!
So here’s some winter skincare tips to get you glowing.
Step 1: CLEANSE EVERY MORNING
Use a creamy cleanser or milk to takeaway the detoxed film that gathers overnight.
Step 2: DOUBLE CLEANSE EVERY NIGHT
The first cleanse removes makeup and grime, and the second actually cleanses the skin. Use jojoba oil for the first cleanse or a makeup pad soaked in floral water of rose or Neroli (orange blossom) to lift and remove he makeup and grime. For the second cleanse use a creamy cleanser or milk to completely remove pollutants and grime.
Step 3: SCRUB UP
Exfoliating is the quickest way to brighter better skin and everyone should be doing it at least once a week, depending on your skin type. As we age, the renewal of skin cells slows. Build up of dead skin cells increases, which requires a little help for renewal.
Step 4: TREAT YOURSELF
Add in a treatment product to your daily routine. This could be a skin-loving oil such as Rosehip Oil or a lightweight serum with lots of Vitamin A and C. Both will be formulated to absorb deeply into the skin before adding daily moisturiser.
Step 5: BOOK YOUR MONTHLY FACIAL!
A professional facial will support your homecare and get your skin feeling and looking its very best. As we age this is essential to boost the renewal process that slows as we age… it’s a slow ageing practice! Irresistible.
