How To Get A Winter Glow

How To Get A Winter Glow

January 25, 2021 by Kate Somerville

In these colder months and darker evenings inside, it is nice to take the time to look after your skin. Throughout Winter our skin can become dull, dry, and textured. Therefore, it is important to know you should switch up your skincare routine to match the winter months like you would switch up your winter wardrobe.

 

Exfoliate the dull skin

 

Our Exfolikate Intensive is a lactic acid-based product which will help with that glow immediately. Lactic acid is a non-friction exfoliant which works by breaking down dead skin without causing irritation. It brightens and evens skin tone as it works to reduce dead skin cells.

 

This product stimulates blood flow and instantly leaves the skin feeling brighter for the day. It is also so important to exfoliate so all the following ingredients in your routine can work to their full potential and penetrate the skin further as there is no dead skin.

 

Hydrate to quench your skins thirst

 

During the winter months our skin can become dehydrated and chapped. It important we are adding that moisture and preventing this.

 

Start by making sure Hyaluronic Acid ingredient is in your routine. This is going to give your skin that quench of thirst it is wanting. Our Dermal Quench Liquid Lift’s utilises Oxygen, Hyaluronic Acid and Botanical Extracts to pump skin full of hydration, improving radiance while visibly smoothing and plumping. Add this product to your AM and PM routine as your first step after cleansing.


A good moisturiser of a thicker consistency to your summer option is good choice. This helps to lock in the moisture and give the skin the protection it needs. Our Exfolikate Glow Moisturiser is a uniquely formulated exfoliating moisturiser proven to enhance your luminosity in just 1 use.* It consists of Latic acid, Gycolic acid and enzymes to help reduce the appearance of surface dullness and uneven skin texture while smoothing fine lines and wrinkles to reveal younger-looking skin. It contains hyaluronic to help further with any dehydration in the skin.


Invest in a Retinol Product

 

Retinol is known to firm, smooth and brighten. Kate and her team have formulated a moisturiser of pure Retinol & Ascorbic Acid (pure Vitamin C) in a stabilized clinical formulation that firms, smooths & brightens skin overnight. We recommend using retinol in your skincare routine all year long but it is great to start in the Winter months if you are looking to invest in Retinol. Our +Retinol Vitamin C moisturiser keeps skin deeply hydrated which is not always found in Retinol while also firming, smoothing, and brightening. This product is formulated with Hyaluronic acid to help with this.





Remember, all skin is incredibly unique. It is essential to introduce Retinol slowly into your routine. It is an active ingredient which increases our skins cellular turnover. When using a new product with retinol we advise you slowly build up usage. Begin once a week and after a few weeks, up it to twice a week etc. Judge it on your skin, there is no rush to use it every evening and be sure to always use SPF the following day and to not use in the same routine as other active ingredients.

 

Whenever trying a new product, we always recommend a discussion with one of our skin experts. This is a free 30 minute consultation where we can discuss your skincare needs and recommend the best products suited for your skin type - Book A Consultation.
