Waking up like this? Not as effortless as the hashtag might suggest. The reality: Good skin is hard work. Especially in winter when the cold winds one goal is to make your skincare mission near impossible. Here are a few of our favorite tips and products to help transform your skin into its best shape, no matter how frosty it is outside.
- Start your morning with a good cleanse, preferably one that won’t dry-out your already sensitive skin. Our pick? Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple Cleanser. It easily removes makeup, dirt and oil without irritating skin. Jackpot. We like to pair our cleanser with Clarisonic’s Mia I to assure dirt is loosened, pores are cleared and dry patches are reduced. It’s all about gentle exfoliation and cleansing.
- Probably the most important part of your entire routine is your moisturizer. Moisture, moisture, moisture! We can’t say it enough. Make sure to pick a sensitive skin-friendly cream that isn’t greasy. Time and time again, we always go back to Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel and couldn’t recommend it more highly.
- If moisturizers quench your skin’s thirst, then serums are like the IV drip that shoots nutrients straight into it for a much-needed boost. The smaller molecules in serums allow the fluids to penetrate skin deeper, and make them that much more effective. ZIRH’s Anti-Aging Serum evens out your skin’s tone and texture, counteracting any cold weather ruddiness.
- Two practical tips: Hydrate and humidify. Believe it or not, but adding more water to your diet and your air (by way of a humidifier) will help protect you from the elements and prevent your skin from drying out in the first place.
