We are used to layering our clothes to suit the seasons. If you want the best results for your skin in winter the solution is exactly the same.
Conditions in winter are usually dry and cold. Your skin dries out, is irritated, red, burning and doesn't look fantastic. Does this sound like you?
What happens that you can look and feel so bad? Well, the skin behaves differently in dry, cold conditions and is often subjected to many temperature changes in a day. You start in the house which may be very warm if heated, then walk outside to the car, walk to the bus, school or work.
Once in your transport the temperature will change again. Destination cold, indoors warm. You get the drift.
- The easy way to keep your skin in prime condition in winter is to layer. After cleansing:
- Apply a serum for hydrating the lower layers of your skin. This ideally be a gel form containing Hyaluronic Acid to replace lost moisture - water not oil.
- Layer with a vitamin serum in a light oil. Best choices are vitamins C with A and E. This is your protect and repair layer.
- Finish with a nourishing moisturiser as your sealing layer.
Immediately apply your makeup while the moisturiser is warm and moist. You will see the best finish this way.
