Nothing sounds better than feeling those happy holidays in the air! But with the holidays comes the winter, and we know the winter can cause some changes in our skin. Especially with all those holiday pictures, we want our skin to be the best it can be! As temperature drops we don’t want our skin to pay the price, so here are some skincare tips for keeping that glow:
Don’t Forget that SPF
Even if the sun is not out as much there is still a significant amount of UVA levels to age our skin! So while you're on the slopes skiing and snowboarding, make sure to apply a good layer of SPF to protect your skin!
Keep Yourself Hydrated
Due to colder weather and even central heating it is essential to keep our skin hydrated. We need to make sure we're getting enough water. Gentle cleansing is also important to protect that skin barrier that retains moisture.
Modify Your Facial Skin-Care Regimen for the Season
During the summer we might have opted for buying moisturizers that were lighter for those hotter days. But just how we swap out your clothes for the winter, it is also important to do the same for our skincare! We must lean towards the richer products that will add extra moisture during the cold days.
Exfoliation for that Glow
Since the weather will produce more dry and dead skin it’s essential to exfoliate because it will get rid of the dead skin cells and help regenerate new ones. So keep up with your Ellen Lange Retexturizing Peel every week and your face will thank you.
Avoid the Winter Itch
Many people find their skin to become itchy due to the dry skin caused by the cold. Ceramides are naturally found in the skin but are disrupted by the cold weather. Ceramide-rich serum like the Ellen Lange GLOWING Skin | Shots is a great solution for that. Apply it right after a shower to help restore the skin’s barrier.
Even though we're all excited for the holiday season, we must not forget to keep our skin happy! Also if you’re having trouble figuring out what to get someone as a present our Ellen Lange Peel Kit is the best present! Happy Holidays!
