Winter Skin Care Essentials
Well, winter has arrived! We hope you are all enjoying the first snow of the season.
With winter here in full force, we all find ourselves burdened with dry, dehydrated skin. Here are our TimeLess favorites for caring for winter skin:
Whisk away dead, flaky skin by exfoliating each morning. Image Skincare’s ultrasoft micro-exfoliating blend of natural botanicals, enzymes and antioxidants help to gently lift dead cells from the skin without stripping moisture, while giving it a new level of radiance.
Winter is not a time to skimp on sun protection. According to The Skin Cancer Foundation, Higher altitude means increased risk of sun-induced skin damage, since UV radiation exposure increases 4 to 5 percent with every 1,000 feet above sea level. At an altitude of 9,000 to 10,000 feet, UV radiation may be 35 to 45 percent more intense than at sea level. In addition, snow reflects up to 80 percent of the UV light from the sun, meaning that you are often hit by the same rays twice. This only increases the risk for damage. So, after cleansing apply a moisturizing SPF. Image Skincare’s Prevention+ line offers a variety of broad spectrum moisturizers ranging from SPF 30 to 50. These ultra-sheer, lightweight moisturizers protect with next-generation technology that combines a physical sunscreen with effective anti-oxidants to prevent free-radical damage. Prevention+ also contains plant-derived stem cells which protect against the aging effect of the sun. Skin Medica offers an SPF 20 TNS Daily Ultimate Moisturizer to hydrate and help fight environmentally-induced skin aging with it’s patented growth factor blend, anti-oxidants, and broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection.
Nothing will fight dehydrated skin better than a good night cream. Skin Medica’s Dermal Repair Cream contains high levels for vitamins C and E, and is an ultra-rich, intensely hydrating cream for replenishing moisture to dry skin. Image Skincare’s Vital C line also offers an ultra-hydrating anti-oxidant repair cream with vitamins A, C, and E to nourish skin overnight.
Dry, cracked lips might just be the worst part of winter, but Image’s Ormedic Lip Enhancing Complex will save them! This ulra-hydrating, powerful polypeptide complex will add 40% of moisture volume.
Last, but certainly not least, we have the best for body care. By blending top organic botanicals, Ojavan Products created a body butter that decimates dry skin. Ojavan’s Decadent-Botanical Body Butter rejuvenates and protects the skin with a luxurious combination of Shea Butter, Coconut and Argan Oil, Green Tea, and Aloe.
Don’t let dry winter skin get you down! Follow these steps and you’re skin will thank you!
