Beauty Kuel Category Expert: Michele Fieldson
Winter weather – cold outdoors, warm indoors – your skin is feeling it, dry, dehydrated, flaky. A mask rubbing against your face is also damaging your skin’s natural protective barrier, and your skin is more sensitive than normal.
You don’t need a complete skincare redo to keep your skin radiant and glowing.
Two Easy Solutions For Winter SkinCare:
A nourishing, hydrating toner is the simplest thing you can do to replenish and rejuvenate dull, sluggish skin. Our Radiance Mist, featuring Bulgarian Rose Water, calms and soothes dry, sensitive skin while glycerin helps protect against environmental stressors (wind and cold) and lock in skin’s moisture.
Masks can also be irritating and contributing to your skin’s woes. The first thing I do when I take off my mask is spritz with toner. Your skin will instantly feel softer, plumper, and hydrated. The true-to-nature rose fragrance is a gentle pick-me-up. Spritz as often as you like throughout the day!
Is it time for a heavier face cream?
You may think you need a heavier face cream for winter, but that’s not necessarily the case. What is most important is the active ingredients.
Serums provide concentrated active ingredients (anti-oxidants, peptides, vitamins) typically in a much higher percentage than moisturizers alone.
Remember, the role of moisturizers is to form a protective barrier on the skin, keep moisture in, while serums are really the first line of defense in getting nutrients to your skin. They are lighter weight, absorb more easily, and are best applied after toner to bare skin and before your moisturizer.
Our Peptide Complex Serum is a velvety rich serum packed full of skin-loving ingredients. It helps diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brightens and evens skin tone, nourishes and hydrates even the driest skin, and layers beautifully under our silky lightweight facial creams.
Here are a few key ingredients:
- Dipalmitoyl hydroxyproline (sometimes described as a natural alternative to Botox)
- Seaweed extract (loaded with vitamins and minerals)
- Hyaluronic acid (which can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water)
- Matsutake (songyi mushroom) and oligopeptides (age-defying powerhouses)
So in these complicated times, let’s keep it simple.
