4 Ways to Get A Healthy Winter Glow
Sun-kissed summer skin is long gone, and winter has been beating up our skin, but that doesn’t mean we’re just going to accept dull, lifeless-looking skin. This winter’s mission is to show our skin some serious TLC and get that healthy winter glow all season long! From gentle exfoliators to moisture intense masks, these are my winter radiance go-to’s.
Customize Your Skincare Routine
First things first: Do you have a 3 step basic routine? A basic skincare routine that everyone should have involves just 3 products. Everyone should be using a cleanser, toner & moisturizer-twice a day. These products should be chosen based on your skin type right now in the winter. If you live in a cold climate during the winter, your skin can be drier than in summer.
Not sure which 3 step routine is for you? You can find out at my previous blog post: SKINCARE RESOLUTIONS. Using the proper products for your skin type, can help balance your skin, so it’s crucial to find the right system.
Exfoliating is so important especially with dry, wind buffed complexions. Our skin already sheds 30,000-40,000 skin cells every minute. It also regenerates itself every 27 days, so it is essential to maintaining the health and vitality of our skin.
Exfoliation helps remove dead cell buildup for smoother, more youthful looking skin and can stimulate the cell renewal process.
In addition to exfoliating products, here are a few tools that can help you exfoliate. You can choose the best one for you, or alternate which one you use depending on your skin’s needs.
Gentle exfoliating can be done with cleansing your skin by incorporating Konjac Facial Sponge Set. Made from the root of the konjac plant, these soft sponges gently slough away makeup, dirt and oil while gently exfoliating skin for a more balanced, rejuvenated complexion. Pair with your favorite cleanser and indulge skin in a luxurious spa-like facial.
Prep your skin for a flawless makeup application with this convenient kit from Tweezerman. The Bright Complexion Facial Dermaplaner gently exfoliates away dead skin cells for a brighter, clearer complexion. The Complexion Cleansing Brush is gentle enough for everyday use to wash away dirt, debris, and impurities. The No-Slip Skincare Tool effectively clears clogged pores and extracts impurities.
Look and feel your best with the True Glow Sonic Facial Beauty Kit from Conair. It has brush attachments for exfoliating your face and body and a special silicone attachment for improving circulation. Its waterproof design lets you use it in the shower.
In winter, our skin likely needs more hydration than other times. I have some clients that try to keep slathering on moisturizer, but their skin is still dry. It’s crucial to drink plenty of water, but you also need to treat your skin to intense moisture. Here are a couple things that will help.
Incredible skin demands an incredible masque. Lumière de Vie Moisture Intense Facial Masque is the definitive treatment that is formulated with aloe to intensely moisturize while reducing oxidative damage from the everyday elements. Utilizing the powerful hydrating effects of hyaluronic acid, this specialized facial masque instantly revitalizes dry, aged skin on contact.
Lumière de Vie Renewal Elixir is a luxurious, superior facial oil that deeply moisturizes and reduces the appearance of aging for a youthful-looking, healthy glow. This gentle multitasker utilizes a weightless blend of skin-loving oils to hydrate, strengthen and smooth for renewed and resilient skin. Texture and elasticity are supported, and the appearance of dark spots is minimized, giving your skin obsession-worthy radiance. Seal in hydration, maintain an even skin tone, and defy time with this powerful treatment that revives your skin.
