winter skin care must-haves
’Tis the season to be jolly and make merry. Winter is a joyous time to eat, drink and spend time with loved ones, while enjoying the drop in temperatures. But like with all good things, winter brings with it a few woes as well, namely dry, flaky and potentially irritated skin. The dry weather and cooler temperatures often make even oily skin dry, dehydrated and taut, which calls for some extra care and nourishment. To help you sail through colder months with soft, supple skin, we got our in-house experts to share a few winter skin care must-haves. Read on and add to cart!
While the cold water running from your taps may discourage you from washing our faces regularly, don’t fall into that trap. Your dry skin needs as much cleansing in the winter as it does during the rest of the year, but make sure you opt for a gentle face wash that doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils. The Special Cleansing Gel does just that. The second step in your double cleansing routine, this cleanser is a pH-balanced, soap-free, foaming face wash that removes impurities without disturbing the skin’s natural moisture balance.
Since your skin can become drier than usual during this season, include a leave-on masque to your routine for some extra nourishment. The Melting Moisture Masque is a balm to oil leave-on masque that replenishes and nourishes the skin. When activated by the skin, the formula transforms and melts, allowing the plant-based lipids in the formula to penetrate deep into the skin. As the masque absorbs into the skin, it instantly soothes and revitalises it. In addition, it provides a deeply soothing sensation. Just like the name suggests, this uber-nourishing formula will literally melt into your skin, leaving it softer. You only need a pea-sized amount twice a week to start seeing benefits.
it’s always sunscreen season
It may be cooler outside; it may even be cloudier than usual, but do not, we repeat, do not skip sunscreen. The sun’s UVA and UVB rays impact the skin the same way all year, so it’s important to protect it in the winter as well. And the moisture from your sunscreen is an added benefit! Go for a lightweight, multitasking SPF for dry skin like the Prisma Protect SPF30, which provides broad-spectrum defence while preventing future signs of skin damage. Its intelligent drone technology is activated by visible light to help boost skin’s natural luminosity. The breakthrough antioxidant technology helps protect skin against pollution and the broad-spectrum SPF30 provides protection from UV damage, while a bio-ferment from Sage helps maintain an even skin tone. Advanced moisture magnets provide all-day hydration for visibly smooth skin.
