Skin Care in the Winter
By Lynn Schroeder

Cold weather dehydrates your skin, robbing it of protection even if you’re using your usual hydrator. Indoor heaters can wreak havoc, leaving skin parched, flaky and even itchy. Your skin needs extra nourishment in the winter, indoors and out.

That’s where Active Hydration Serum comes in. Active Hydration Serum features a 3D3P Molecular Matrix that continuously delivers a moisture-attracting solution of Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin that defends against dry skin for instant, long lasting results. It has been clinically tested to increase skin’s hydration level by 200% after just one use* and keep it there for eight hours.

Here are some DOs and DON’Ts for winter skin care:

DO hydrate. When skin is at its driest, a daily and nightly hydration boost is exactly what it needs — and serums pack the biggest punch, in some cases raising hydration levels by 200% after just one use.* Layer one under your moisturizer morning and night to comfort dry skin.

DON’T skip sunscreen. Even if you don’t see the sun, its harmful rays can find you 365 days a year. Help prevent premature signs of aging by applying sunscreen every day.

DON’T use hot water. Whether you’re showering or washing your face, using water that’s too hot can dry out your skin. For best results, use lukewarm water and moisturize when skin is still damp to help lock-in extra moisture.

DO exfoliate regularly. Dead skin cells make it harder for moisturizers and other products to reach the uppermost layer of your skin and do the job they’re supposed to do. Once a week, use an exfoliator to reap the benefits of your products and enjoy softer-feeling skin.

DO hydrate from the inside out. You might not feel as thirsty as you do during summer, but drinking water and eating hydrating fruits and vegetables is just as important in the winter.

DON’T neglect your hands. There’s nothing enjoyable about having dry, rough hands — and they can make you look older than you are. Keep them happy by applying a rich cream or balm at least two or three times daily.

DO change up your routine. A few tweaks to your usual skincare regimen can make a big difference. In winter, your skin might feel better if you switch to a gentler, creamier facial cleanser.

Following these tips will help you feel and look your best, no matter how low the temperature drops.

Skin… it’s a beautiful thing. Wear it well!
