On bitter cold days, when our skin gets dry and even our lips basically fall off, start using these products and you will keep glowing in winter gloomy days.
As much as we love our extra hour of beauty sleep in winter, the end of “Daylight Saving Time” gives us a gloomy reality check: chilly temps, dry air and harsh winds are the way and the battle for getting a healthy and glowing skin in winter. To beat dryness, you need some extra TLC and loads of hydration. Ready to glow? I’ve found the best products that every skin type needs:
Bobbi Brown – Instant Detox Mask: its purifying formula does the dirty work – providing a deeper, more thorough cleaning. Like a deep cleanse for skin—this mask removes impurities, pollutants and excess oil from pores without stripping skin. A unique blend of Hawaiian Sea Water and mineral-rich Amazonian White Clay work together to help extract toxins and impurities, while reducing the appearance of pore size. Combined with the detoxifying powers of Sea Salt and Sea Water, the powerful clay-based formula helps remove pore-clogging debris and excess oil from skin, while simultaneously nourishing—never over-stripping.
FRESH & CALM
SkinCeuticals – Phyto Corrective Masque: This mask contains highly-concentrated botanical extracts, a calming dipeptide, and hyaluronic acid to intensively soothe and replenish temporary skin reactivity. This intensive calming facial mask cools, comforts skin sensitivity, and restores natural radiance and smoothness. Phyto Corrective Masque has been clinically tested post-procedure to effectively reduce visual redness and discomfort.
Juvena – Miracle Boost Essence: essential moisture and activation of skin functions – the first step towards improved, smooth skin. Discover this elixir to support your skin’s youthfulness and treat yourself to a new, pampering skin care routine. The combination of high-tech peptide AGP (aquaglyceroporin) and JUVENA SkinNova SC Technology has a synergetic effect, giving you an extra plus of moisture from inside. At the same time, the structure of your skin is improved and its functions invigorated. Your skin is receptive for the skin care routine that follows and shines with new smoothness.
La Prairie – Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion: This light-yet-potent hydrating and conditioning formula contains 100% active Caviar Water, a highly concentrated infusion with active caviar-rich components to lift and firm. It also helps refine and minimize the appearance of pores. A pre-serum treatment essence that is the first transformative step in your skin care ritual, preparing your skin to reap the benefits of serums and treatments to follow.
La Prairie – Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Transforming Cream Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 – Combines the benefits of skincare, color and sun protection in one, balancing your complexion with natural-looking color to counteract dullness and signs of fatigue while helping defend and build resistance to skin-aging stressors. Its self-adjusting, intuitive color pigments bask your skin perfectly in filtered light to give it a healthy glow. It comes packaged with a complexion brush to give your skin a seamless, airbrushed finish.
La Prairie – Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Serum: it’s a lightweight, age-delaying serum that helps relieve signs of fatigue, including lines, dullness and dryness. The deeply hydrating formula imparts a youthful-looking glow on your skin upon application, instantly smoothing, soothing and replenishing. Over time, your skin is brightened and more even with diminished wrinkles. Its Ice Crystal Complex provides anti-pollution protection, has anti-inflammatory benefits and boosts microcirculation to fortify skin barriers.
Helena Rubinstein – Prodigy Reversis Day Serum: this serum reached two Nobel prizes under its belt, Prodigy Reversis Serium combats the effects of time on the skin. As the years go by, senescent sells secrete the senescence-messaging secretome or SASP, a set of toxic molecules. A prodigious discovery containing edelweiss extract and stem cells, the Prodigy Reversis Serium inhabits the effects of the SASP. The formula of the serum allows the skin to build itself back up from within. The skin is deeply nourished, the complexion radiant and the instant youthful effect will be there.
SkinCeuticals – Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2: This cream is like a magic and is increasingly susceptible to lipid depletion: the loss of natural compounds in skin’s surface, present in the form of ceramides, natural cholesterol and fatty acids. This lipid loss compromises skin’s natural protective barrier, resulting in visible signs of accelerated aging, as skin loses its ability to effectively self-repair.
Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 is an anti aging cream formulated with a maximized concentration of lipids: 2% pure ceramides, 4% natural cholesterol, and 2% fatty acids. It has been clinically proven to improve the visible appearance of skin smoothness, laxity, pores, and overall radiance.
