During the bitter winter months, it can be a challenge to keep your skin balanced, hydrated and healthy. As the air cools down drastically, it may feel as though all moisture disappears from your skin and everything starts to change. With the arrival of a new season, it’s always a good idea to make some changes to your skincare routine. Here are three products that will keep your skin nourished and glowing all winter long:
Prevent your skin from becoming dry this winter by regularly exfoliating two to three times per week. Exfoliation will help to remove your surface dead skin cells, ultimately helping your other products penetrate better because the wall of dead cells disappears, revealing healthy, soft skin.
Try MyChelle’s anti-aging, Fruit Fiesta Peel to deeply exfoliate and renew a youthful glow and texture. Multi-fruit acids are combined with 7% lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) from glucose, to exfoliate, help balance skin’s pH and reduce transepidermal water loss (TEWL). Lactic acid also helps reduce wrinkles and pigmentation discoloration, creating smoother skin with improved texture. Organic raspberry fruit soothes skin irritations and reduces inflammation to relieve discomfort, while Rainforest Harvest™ delivers vitamins, minerals, fruit acids, fruit sugars and phytosterols to nourish, rejuvenate and moisturize the skin. This potent AHA blend works to smooth the look of wrinkles, leaving skin feeling refreshed and invigorated, with a light tingling sensation.
Serums are an awesome way to add extra nutrients and active ingredients into your daily routine. Serums are highly concentrated liquids that penetrate deep into the layers of the skin to deliver potent ingredients. Depending on your skin type, you can mix a match the right serums for your skin. You can also use multiple serums for synergetic benefits. Simply apply one serum, then wait 60 to 90 seconds before applying the next one.
A must-have serum for all skin types during the winter months is MyChelle’s Serious Hyaluronic Firming Serum, which firms and lifts the skin while hyaluronic acid replenishes moisture reserves. Cell-renewing copper mineral has been shown to tighten skin, improve elasticity and stimulate collagen synthesis. Proline, an amino acid, improves moisture retention and aids tissue repair. Superoxide dismutase inhibits the free radical reaction that causes cell damage.
- Sun Protection
Unless we’re sledding, skiing or cleaning snow off our car windows, we try to not spend too much time outside during the colder months. This leads us to think we don’t need sun protection; but, in fact, we do. Incidental sun exposure is the leading cause of hyperpigmentation and the only way to prevent the damage is to stop it from happening in the first place. This can only be done through sun protection and awareness. Make it a priority to wear a healthy sun protector every day and reapply when playing outside.
MyChelle’s Replenishing Solar Defense SPF 30 is a great solution for keeping your skin safe from damaging UV rays. This unique product works to repair and avert photo- damage brought on by the sun’s aging rays while maintaining protective moisture. ZinClear™ non-opaque zinc oxide provides natural protection against both UVA and UVB rays, without harsh chemicals. A blend of kukui and macadamia oils combine with red algae to reduce the look of lines and wrinkles brought on by environmental stress. For daily use, allow product to absorb completely before applying makeup and apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. Also practice safe sun protection measures like limiting your time in the sun, especially from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and wear protective clothing like long-sleeve shirts, pants, hats and sunglasses.
