How to Hydrate Winter Skin

How to Hydrate Winter Skin

 

Everything changes in Winter - our colour is not as tanned or sun kissed as Summer and the winter months can leave us looking a little dull and listless. 

The texture of our skin changes as we tend to move from one extreme to another.... hot to cold, cold to hot, wet to windy - you get the picture and it's this change in conditions that plays havoc with our skin and drys us out, making our skin feel dehydrated, dry and flaky.

Dry skin typically experiences a breakdown of the skin barrier functions due to inflammation, as well as a build-up of dead skin cells. The number one solution is to keep skin well hydrated.

Hydration.

Keep internally hydrated. Eat plenty of essential fatty acids, (“EFAs”) omega-3, found in avocado and oily fish and omega -6 found in nuts, wholegrain and flaxseed oil, which keep hydrated and clarified. There is growing evidence that “EFAs” assist in keeping skin moisturised, smooth and healthy.

And of course, don't forget to drink lots of water.

Exfoliate.

Exfoliate weekly to counteract the build-up of dead skin cells. In winter things slow down, the natural shedding slows down and products become less effective, as the barrier of dead cells prevents absorption.

A rich cocktail of skin-nurturing organic oils – jojoba seed, grape seed, argan and avocado – plus our own biodynamic spelt oil bursting with antioxidant, moisturising and regenerative properties, skin is left touchably-soft and perfectly primed for optimal product absorption.

Cleanse.

Don’t hit the sack before removing your makeup, environmental toxins like dirt and pollution or heavy makeup build up on your skin and invade pores, which can cause complexion problems. 

You may find it tempting to fall into bed after a busy day—or a late night on the town—without cleaning your face but this doesn't help the healing process. While resting your cells are working hard to regenerate collagen and elastin.

Look after the appearance of your skin by using a gentle cleanser that won't strip the skin.

Then we’ll finish with makeup. 

Protect. 

Here's my list of double duty makeup products to help keep your skin hydrated throughout the cooler months. 

First, let's look at your primer. Why a Primer? 

Primer preps your skin for the perfect base for your foundation application by filling in fine lines and smoothing pores, it helps your foundation to go on smoother and last longer and it keeps your makeup looking fresh all day.
