Winter often triggers changes in everyday lifestyle habits. We trade flip flops for furry boots and white tees for cable sweaters. Our skin is often overlooked in the transitional shuffle and can rapidly go from merry and bright to fa-la-la-la blah. The time is now, before skin becomes completely dehydrated and flakey, to get proactive and incorporate a few simple changes into your daily routine and chill-proof your skin. To get started, MyChelle offers its Winter Beauty Playbook with suggested techniques and 5 products recommendations guaranteed to protect your complexion until warmer temperatures and cheerier conditions return.
Exfoliators: The Key to Radiant Skin
Exfoliating 2-3 times per week is one of the best ways to prevent dryness and reveal lasting radiance. Regular exfoliation will help remove dead surface skin cells, allowing serums and moisturizers to penetrate more effectively.
Skin Saver 1: Try the anti-aging Fruit Fiesta Peel to clarify skin for a renewed youthful glow and texture. Multi-fruit acids are combined with 7% Lactic Acid, an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) from glucose, to exfoliate and help balance skin’s pH levels. Lactic Acid also helps reduce wrinkles while Organic Raspberry Fruit soothes skin irritation and reduces inflammation.
Treatment Masks: The Moisture Surge
Spoil skin throughout the season with a restorative mask to help hydrate and replenish moisture. Apply a rich mask 2-3 times per week after cleansing and before layering serums to achieve a radiant glow that resists even the harshest environments.
Skin Saver 2: The Hydrating Cactus Mask is a consistent customer favorite. This antioxidant-rich mask features Prickly Pear Cactus and Blue Agave to ease discomfort and signs of redness while preventing moisture loss.
Serums: The Dry Skin Transformer
When winter skin conditions are at their worst, the addition of a supercharged serum—or two—can bring life back to dull, dry skin. Their highly concentrated formulas penetrate deep into the skin to deliver potent ingredients. Depending on your skin type, go ahead and mix, match, and layer multiple serums for more dramatic results. Just, not all at once. Apply one, and wait 60-90 seconds before applying the next.
Skin Saver 3: The one serum we cannot live without December thru April is the Ultra Hyaluronic Hydrating Serum. This potent elixir replenishes skin’s natural moisture barrier and prevents trans epidermal water loss (moisture depletion).
Night Cream: The Restorative Remedy
When a full night of sleep isn’t possible, your skin requires additional relief to activate the repair and renewal process, vital for hydration restoration and toxin elimination. When this doesn’t happen, the resulting moisture imbalance reveals itself in the form of puffy eyes, dark circles, and more prominent fine lines and wrinkles.
Skin Saver 4: To help your skin survive and thrive throughout the night, we suggest applying a quarter-size dollop of the Revitalizing Night Cream. This overnight workhorse restores firmness and improves hydration levels for a more youthful, dewy complexion. A beauty boost for your beauty sleep!
Eye Cream: Bullseye! A Targeted Treatment
If your skin is generally dry during the winter months, chances are the delicate under eye skin is suffering dehydration as well. Even worse, the extreme dryness exacerbates early signs of aging. A targeted eye treatment is vital. Stat.
Skin Saver 5: Keep eyes in tiptop shape with our Fabulous Eye Cream. When used daily, the advanced formula of Revolutionary Edelweiss Plant Stem Cells, Hyaluronic Acid, and Organic Shea Butter delivers humectant-rich nutrients, key nourishing lipids, and hydration to the delicate eye area and help reduce visible fine lines and wrinkles.
