Let’s face it, so far, this winter is proving to be brutal to our skin and we haven’t even reached December yet! A drop-in temperature, icy winds, driving rain and a lack of sunshine can leave not only our mood a little blue, but out skin a little grey too – and we don’t want that.
Layering up your skin with the right products can really help you to have a healthy glow even when the chill factor is turned right up.
If you want to brighten and firm your skin, look no further than the Dermalogica Biolumin-C Serum. This high-performance vitamin C serum is clever because it works with your skin’s own defences to deliver the natural power of vitamin C where it’s needed the most. Massage a little into your face morning and night and you will soon start to see, and feel, the impact of Mother Nature with this great extra layer of love.
We don’t really think we can have radiant skin in the depths of winter (unless you are in Australia) but the Decleor Jasmine Eye Cream changes all of that. This is an anti-fatigue, illuminating, anti-ageing eye cream that works wonders for skin that’s had enough of bitter winds. A mix of stimulating caffeine, vitamins B3 and CG have been mixed with orange pigments to protect and brighten the eye area and with jasmine fighting wrinkles, this is a winter game changer you can use morning and night.
Pinpointing issues is a good idea when the environment is stacked against you and that’s why we are fans of the Elemis Pro-Definition Eye and Lip Contour Cream. This nourishing cream firms and plumps the thin, dry skin not only around your eyes but close to your lips so that you’re left with finer, smoother, more youthful skin. The magic happens thanks to active plant stem cells from Edelweiss that have been combined with mafane flower and alaria esculenta which add a layer of natural protection to keep you safe against environmental damage.
If you want to keep your skin hydrated, layering with facial oil in winter can be your saving grace. We love the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Oil as it can be used by everyone and thanks to a trio of seaweed it really does moisturise and nourish dull, tried skin that is giving into the elements. Padina pavonica, golden seaweed and water kelp really deliver maximum hydration, whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Add to your skin after you tone, and before you moisturise, and you will glad you did.
You might think that a primer will clog your skin, think again! The Dermalogica HydraBlur Primer is a marvellous multi-tasking primer that can really bring dry or dehydrated skin back to life. The lightweight, non-greasy formula hydrates and transforms the skin using a dramatic blurring effect, so it looks as smooth and pristine as the first fall of snow. Best used after you have moisturised, a combo of fruit and mushroom extracts, iron and natural oils help boost skin circulation, enhancing radiance and luminosity.
