As we all know Winter can and does wreak havoc on our skin.
Here are a few winter skin care tips that will leave your skin feeling soft, dewy, hydrated and moisturized.
1.Taking Essential Fatty Acids is vital for healthy cell membranes. Without permeable cell membranes nothing goes in and nothing goes out, which means no nutrients can penetrate and no toxins can be eliminated. Our cell membrane is strictly dependent on EFA’s that are found in walnuts, dark leafy greens, flax & chia seeds, cold water fish and supplements.
2. Never use soap on your face.( If I could have a $1 for every lady who told me she used soap on her face……I would have quite a few extra dollars in my bank account)..and the sad part is…their skin showed the effects. Soap is alkaline and extremely harsh on your skin. It strips your natural oils and causes Trans Epidermal Water Loss (TPWL) which causes skin dehydration. Without proper hydration, skin sensitivities, acne and the overall health of your skin is compromised
3. Using a toner with hydrating components such as our Cucumber Hydrating Toner will help lock moisture within the skin especially when you apply our Ageless Hydrating or Vitamin C serums while the skin is still damp from the toner. The right toner with the right ingredients is like a refreshing drink of water to your skin. It is proven that moist skin is 10x more permeable than dry skin meaning when you apply serums with active ingredients those ingredients will penetrate deeper within the skin creating change.
4. Skin needs extra protection during the winter months including a more emollient moisturizer such as Skin Scripts Hydrating or Peptide Moisturizer or Natures Genesis Herbal Infused Cream Therapy or Nature’s Genesis Reparative Antiaging Cream Therapy. Extreme temperatures both hot and cold pull the moisturizer from your skin leaving behind that taunt and dry feeling. If your skin is dry and flaking that means the surface of your skin is dehydrated and needs to be exfoliated. Exfoliation will allow our nourishing serums and moisturizers to penetrate deep within the epidermis.
5. Running a humidifier or a crockpot in the bedroom will do wonders for your skin. Since dry air sucks moisture anywhere it can…even from your skin, using a humidifier will help bring moisture back into to the air and into your skin. Personally, I wouldn’t be without my crockpot on the nightstand….give this a try…you will feel the difference right away.
