For Healthy Glowing Winter Skin

For Healthy Glowing Winter Skin
When it comes to my skin, winter is not kind. I know the chilliest season has officially arrived when dry patches start to form around my lips and nose, and my skin takes on a texture somewhere in between a roll of sandpaper and the Sahara desert. Between the dry winter air, low temperatures, over exposure to air conditioning, and a slight addiction to super hot showers, my skin becomes dehydrated, irritated and itchy, and my fine lines and wrinkles come out of hiding. The question on everyone’s chapped lips: How do we combat this?
Winter air is less humid than summer air, and when combined with other factors like heating and hot showers, our skin becomes as thirsty as a millennial on a Friday night. Our outer skin layers are composed of lipids and fats that protect the skin from drying out, and hot water, dry air and harsh soaps cause that layer to break down faster. Whelp. Our skin changes with each passing of the season, and therefore it makes sense that our skincare routines need to change to match this. Read on for a winter skin regimen packed with products that’ll have your skin hydrated and glowing in no time…
Cleansing Oil - When the temperatures start to drop, it’s a good idea to swap out your regular face wash for a cleansing oil such as PreCleanse or PreCleanse Balm. Your regular routine may be stripping away natural oils, whereas a cleansing oil will usually contain essential fatty acids that moisturise the skin, making it feel supple and soft.
Cleanser (milk or cream) - Similarly, a milk, lotion or cream-based cleanser will help to soothe and condition skin, so that it doesn’t feel even drier after cleansing. You could try the new Intensive Moisture Cleanser or UltraCalming Cleanser.
Face Oil - Like a kitten to a saucer of milk, your skin will lap up face oil with glee in the winter months. The key is finding oils that are hydrating but not comedogenic (i.e. pore clogging), with an ingredients list that includes argan, safflower, sweet almond, or camellia which is in the Phyto Replenish Oil.
Serum/Booster - Since your skin needs a helping hand through these frigid months, a serum or booster is a non-negotiable element in your skincare routine. Try the new Multivitamin Power Serum, or the popular BioLumin C Serum which containes Argan, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, sunflower seed oil, and linseed oil are all incredibly adept ingredients at bringing dry, dull winter skin back to life.
Exfoliator - A gentle cream exfoliator will be your BFF during the winter months. Just don’t overdo it—exfoliating too often can cause redness, sensitivity and tightness in the skin. The Daily Microfoliant is a wonderful daily exfoliant which is so gentle on your skin.
Moisturiser - During winter, your skin will require a heavier moisturiser than it does in the warmer months. A long-lasting moisturiser or a thick cream containing hyaluronic acid or glycerin will help to draw in moisturiser, also. If your skin is sensitive, keep an eye out for products containing ceramides, which are naturally occurring lipids in the skin. Have your tried the new Barrier Defense Booster? You can mix this with you moisturiser.
Lip Balm - In saving the best part of your new regimen to last, it’s time to give your lips the TLC they deserve. Avocado, shea, cocoa seed, and aloe vera are all great options for both softening and healing dry, chapped lips. Dermalogica has both the Nightly Lip Treatment plus the Lip Renewal Complex.

Nightly Lip Treatment - No need for anti-wrinkle injections

Nightly Lip Treatment NEW PRODUCT
Say goodnight to lip lines as Dermalogicas new Lip Treatment smoothes away the appearance of laugh and feather lines while you sleep. This rich overnight formula firms, hydrates, and restores skin on and around the lips , improves skin elasticity, and helps control aging before it starts.
No need for anti-wrinkle injections and lip enhancements, here is your answer.
As we age, the formation of vertical lines above the upper lip, sagging in the mouth region, and feathering outside of the lips become more pronounced – especially for those with a history of smoking. Though the eyes are often thought to show the first signs of aging, the lip and mouth area develop some of the most dramatic visible differences.
Lips lack the same composition of oil and sweat glands that provide moisture to other areas of the face, while at the same time, saliva dries out lips’ natural oils. As a result, moisture evaporates from lips faster than the rest of the face, contributing to visible lines and feathering. The fat storage in our face changes, it disappears from our face and moves to our middle! We see folds starting to appear and lines and wrinkles forming due not only to the movement of fat cells, but also collagen and elastin breakdown. This nightly lip treatment is not just a superficial cream for the lip area, the ingredients are powerful workhorses literally working on those fat cells in the perioral region to bring about a change and help to increase volume.
