How to Transition Your Skincare for the Winter months With IMAGE Skincare
Good-bye summer, hello Winter! Just as we change our wardrobe when the mercury starts to drop, we also need to alter our skincare routine. Colder, drier weather requires a different regimen than the hot humidity of summertime. Here are five tips to transition your skincare for the Winter to keep your skin healthy and vibrant!
Down the Shower Temperature
When the chilly days set in, the temptation to crank up the heat and take a super-steamy shower is strong. While we can’t always resist our urges, keep in mind that the warm water will rob your skin of essential oils, leaving you feeling drier. Taking too many hot and humid showers will strip your natural oils faster than your skin can produce them, potentially leading to irritated skin., try using VITAL C Hydrating Facial Oil (30 ml €51.50)after your shower by applying one dropper all over your face and neck. This blend of skin-conditioning plant oils, fatty acids and antioxidants help your skin retain moisture for a supple appearance.
Keep Up the SPF
Don’t let cloudy days fool you! UV rays will still penetrate your skin and cause damage. Zinc oxide blocks UV rays while aloe vera leaf juice and glycerin keep your skin hydrated. Just apply to cleansed skin every morning as you would a daily moisturizer. Make sure to reapply every two hours if you plan on being out and about. Prevention+ Matte Moisturiser (95 ml €46.50)
Exfoliate Gently and Consistently
Summertime lounging often leads to peeling shoulders and noses. So, as we transition into Winter, it’s important to exfoliate regularly and clear up those dead skin cells for a bright-looking complexion. We like to take a two step-method for Winter exfoliation. Our ILUMA Intense Brightening Exfoliating Powder (44ml €41) is an ultra-soft micro-exfoliating blend perfect for all skin types. Pumpkin enzyme gently sheds away damaged and dead skin cells while our protein-peptide complex diminishes the appearance of an uneven skin tone.
Introduce a Serum Into Your Routine
While a lightweight cream might have been enough to keep your skin hydrated over summer, biting winds and a drop in humidity means its time to amp up your moisturizing game.
Try ILUMA Intense Lightening Serum (30ml €52.50 ), our favourite for sun-damaged skin. A blend of Vitamin C and grape seed extract promote a clarified, fresh-looking complexion.
Treat Yourself to a Mask
We know we’re talking about hydration a lot, but it really is the key glowing skin. Not only will you be keeping your skin hydrated, but you’ll also unwind and relax from the stresses of the day. the I MASK Bimolecular Hydrating Recovery Mask,(€9.00) a moisture-rich sheet mask designed to rescue you of dull, dry skin.
