Be winter ready in 4 simple steps
Winter is coming. And unless you’re Elsa from Frozen, you have to admit the cold really does bother you. From flakes to blotches, the cold brings a storm of skin issues that are sure to give you the winter blues. Then again, we’re still stepping our ankle boots into fall, we’ve got time in our hands to winter-proof our face. Read on and get yourselves winter-ready with these cold weather skin must-haves.
Its common knowledge that winter is the season for dry skin. Winter itch anyone? When humidity is low, moisture is drawn out of your skin leaving it dry, flaky and vulnerable. Your face will need a mighty moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated at this time. Dermalogica’s Intensive Moisture Balance optimizes skin health with its exclusive blend of texturizing p hytonutrients and antioxidant vitamins. All these only mean one thing: ultra-rich nourishment for your ultra-dry and starving winter skin.
Try Dermalogica’s Intensive Moisture Balance. It restores vital moisture and prevents free radical damage with its firming humectants.
Fact: your skin gets duller during colder months. You’ll have to exfoliate more than the usual to lift dead cells off your skin. To make sure your sensitive skin doesn’t get irritated, you need a mild exfoliant that’s naturally formulated. Urban Veda’s Reviving Exfoliating Facial Polish is perfect for this job. Its all-natural formulation of organic pomegranate juice, borage and jasmine hydrate and nourish while rosehip, evening primrose and germanium protect and retain the skin’s ability to lock in moisture.

The sun may be MIA most days of winter but its harmful UVA and UVB rays still shine through invisible, yet harmful nonetheless. Don’t give your skin a break from sunscreen just because you don’t feel the heat. Keep a bottle of John Masters Organics SPF 30 to protect your skin from the evils of both and prevent further sun damage.
Try the John Masters Organics SPF 30. It keeps your skin nourished and soft with jojoba oil and has green tea extracts to soothe your skin of any sunburn related inflammation.
Winter, more than ever, is the time to protect your skin against free radicals; the molecules that attack and break down your skin’s collagen. Collagen keeps skin plump and smooth so it’s definitely a good idea to keep your skin fueled with it. Vitamin C, a natural abundant source of collagen, is the main ingredient in Cellex-C Betaplex Fresh Complexion Mist. It’s gentle enough for the most sensitive skin but packs a punch with its organic formulation of botanical extracts and natural acids tightening your pores and stimulating new skin cells to the surface. This flexible blend in a bottle can also be used as an aftershave for men.
Go arm yourself with a bottle of Cellex-C Betaplex Fresh Complexion Mist to spray on your face as a toner or makeup foundation to keep your skin radiant throughout the cold winter months.
