Here at Pure Beauty HQ, we’re well in the grips of The Beast from the East and although the first few couple of days were a bit of a novelty, we’re totally over the cold weather and havoc it’s playing with our skin! If you’re snowed in and need some ideas for products which will help to protect and repair your skin once the snow has cleared, we’ve got some great suggestions for you:
Protecting your skin from the barrage of cold wind and snow is really important if you’re planning to spend any time at all outside, and skin oils are a great ally against snow exposure. This oil from Dermalogica is a daily-use treatment oil that leverages the best of nature and its many phytoactives to solve dryness and dehydration while reinforcing the skins natural protective function.
Keeping your skin hydrated when the weather is below zero is important, but can be more difficult than usual, especially when you’re spending time in centrally heated homes. This cream from Decleor offers 24 hour hydration without feeling heavy or greasy on your skin, is suitable for all skin types and 85% of women noticed their skin was revitalised and softer after the first application.
The eye area is vulnerable at the best of times because the skin in this area is so much thinner, but when it’s cold, the risk is doubled. This eye cream from Dermalogica is slightly tinted and is designed to re-texturise, protect and refresh your vulnerable eye area during the day with SPF15. It is suitable for all skin types and can help to reduce the appearance of puffiness and fine lines.
Keeping your skin clean when it’s been getting a constant barrage of wind and snow can be tricky, because you don’t want to use anything which might make your skin feel even drier. This cleansing milk from Decleor has a gentle feel which won’t irritate already sensitised skin and can help protect, repair and soften all skin types. It contains detoxifying green tea essential water to help remove dirt and tighten pores.
This moisturiser from Dermalogica is like a magic potion for dehydrated skin, and contains a complex combination of ingredients which are designed to soothe and repair your skin. As well as harnessing the power of vitamins A, C and E, it also contains red seaweed, organic silicones and Green Tea leaf extract – perfect if your skin has taken a battering from the bad weather.
