We all know we lose some momentum with our skincare regime during winter, yet every year when the colder weather comes around, the exfoliating and cleansing regime that we were so dedicated to during the summer months seems to gradually come to a halt. Our skin begins to dry out as the central heating is turned up, the weather changes and we often use more frequently extra layers of moisturiser and make-up so achieving a radiant, fresh-face instead of a dull, lacklustre one can be a challenge.
So here are a few tips to keep in mind for your Winter skincare routine:
Tip 1 – GSR Getting Skin Ready
Healthy skin is younger looking skin. To achieve radiant skin adopt a daily routine of cleansing, scrubbing and oil control. These steps enable the skin to function properly, tolerating all daily exposure and activities.
Tip 2 – Correcting The Texture
Correct and restore the surface texture of your skin through exfoliation. Exfoliating promotes skin-cell turnover and avoids a build-up of dead skin cells allowing your skin to look its freshest.
Tip 3 – SPF
Remember to use a daily primer or sun cream with SPF 30 to protect your skin, as UV rays can still damage your skin, even in winter.
Tip 4 – Stabilization
After you’ve cleansed your face, it’s essential that you strengthen your skin and restore normal hydration to it. Serums are often used in addition to regular moisturiser to give a boost.
Medical Skincare works with more intensity and results. A key product I recommend is ZO Ossential Daily Power Defense, it is the perfect serum as it introduces DNA repair enzymes to speed up the skin’s natural mechanism to repair DNA damage and protect against future oxidative damage. In addition to providing antioxidant protection to combat free radical damage and restoring the skin’s barrier system.
Tip 5 – Regular HydraFacial
Every month or 6 weeks incorporate a Hydrafacial into your routine. Clinically proven by the FDA to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, congested and enlarged pores, oily or acne prone skin, hyperpigmentation and brown spots. This treatment is a celebrity loved favourite…..
