Essential Winter Skincare Tips for Maintaining Glowing Skin

With winter coming upon us, our skin needs to be given appropriate care and attention. The cold weather, central heating, strong winds, and temperature fluctuations can all cause havoc to the complexion: redness, dryness, dehydrated skin - so it's important to make sure we nourish our face in the right way.


  1. Prepare your skin to receive the best nutrients

A good preparation of the skin is essential for glowing results. Try out the Glacier Skin Perfection Glow Cleanser for a gentle elimination of any impurities, to eliminate dead cells. It also is great to remove all make up thoroughly. And don't forget to exfoliate once or twice a week with the Glacier Skin Perfection Glow Mask; its two-step action (containing astringent red algae and volcanic rock mineral powder) is ideal to boost radiance quickly. Finish this with the Glacier Skin Perfection Glow Cream; its restorative formula is plentiful in oils, rich shea butter and brightening peptides to help soothe and nourish your skin and to give it an instant glow. With these simple steps you'll be well on your way of having healthy skin all winter long!


  1. Hydrate and nourish your skin to perfection

With winter on its way, now is the perfect time to begin prepping your skin! The cold weather, wind and central heating can take a toll on your complexion. The cold, windy weather and temperature changes can do a number on our skin. It's important to prepare your skin for the season by finding the best products with nutrients to ensure proper hydration and nourishment and to soothe and protect from the harsh elements.

To combat this, switch up your skin care routine to richer, more nourishing formulas that will protect the skin from external aggressions and replenish collagen reserves.

The Daily Chocolate Moisturising Lotion, for example, is packed with macadamia oil, shea butter and selected seaweed extracts to intensely nourish the epidermis.

Furthermore, products rich in peptides like the Refresh and Renew Night Cream will help provide and replenish collagen reserves necessary for mature dermis or very dry skin, making sure your face feel revitalized and fully plumped while you sleep!



  1. Adapt your skincare routine to the season

As the winter season approaches, it's time to adapt your skincare routine to the colder temperatures. Start off by trying out a face serum and day cream combination to give your skin maximum nourishment, hydration and comfort. Serums are made up of powerful active ingredients specifically formulated to penetrate deep into the skin for targeted action like nourishing, moisturizing, and anti-aging benefits. It'll also help protect your face from dehydration. They can be used for anything from anti-aging protection to moisturizing boosters.

 Creams, on the other hand, form a physical barrier on the surface of the skin while locking in moisture. Rejuvenation HA Hydro Intensive  Serum is a great choice with its blend of sesame seed, 3 types of hyaluronic acid and wheat germ oils and peptides that are known for their nourishing benefits. Use it twice a day under either Glacier Skin Perfection Glow Cream or Refresh & Renew Night Cream and you'll notice your skin will no longer feel tight as it regains its suppleness and glow!


  1. Take lukewarm showers

When the weather outside is chilly, we all want to take a long, hot shower to warm up. However, that can be bad for our skins because it can strip your skin of its natural protective oils, leaving it dry and irritated. The best way to protect your skin in Winter is to reduce the temperature of your showers. Make sure the temperature doesn't go over 38°C so that you do not disrupt your skin's hydrolipidic barrier. Warm water instead of hot helps keep your skin hydrated and healthy. Afterwards, don't forget to apply a rich body cream like our Daily Chocolate Moisturising Lotion which nourishes and soothes for long-lasting comfort! This cream has a rich and creamy texture that provides lasting moisture and restoration! This is also the seaon to use rich succulent body butters. Its rich texture provides much-needed comfort and restorative care to help keep your skin healthy during the colder months. A to die for body butter is Lily Michael’s Shea Smooth & Firm Restorative Body Butter. This has a rich texture to nourish and hydrate and restore skin for softness and comfort all winter long!


  1. Take care of your skin from the inside

Taking care of your skin during winter may be more complicated, since cold temperatures and dry air make it difficult for the skin to maintain its natural moisture. Therefore, proper winter skin care is essential to keep your skin healthy. First of all, take lukewarm showers instead of hot ones as these are less drying. Secondly, make sure you stay hydrated from within by drinking at least 1.5 liters of water a day - even if you don't feel thirsty, as your cells need hydration constantly!. Finally, provide your body with good nutrients such as oily fish (such as mackerel, sardines and salmon)  that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and oilseeds like rapeseed oil for better overall health and skin condition and to give an extra boost to your healthy skin's winter protection.
