Do you change up your skin care routine for the season? If you live in a colder climate like Minnesota, you probably notice your skin needs extra care and more hydration as the winter months go by. Winter skin care doesn’t have to be difficult.
Changing your cleanser can be a great start. If you normally use a facial wash, a creamy cleanser may be less drying. My favorite year round is Rejuvenating Frankincense Refining Cleanser. It’s never drying to my skin.
Exfoliation becomes even more important in the winter to remove dead skin. Cell turnover slows down as we age, so exfoliating twice a week can really brighten a dull complexion.
The toner you choose can also help. Avoid drying toners with alcohol, and look for anti-oxidant rich formulas that will prepare your skin for serum. The right toner will help your skin better absorb serum or facial oil, while removing the last traces of cleanser. It’s also great in the morning if you are too rushed to for the cleansing step.
It’s important to remember to use less product when you are using a serum, as well as facial oil and moisturizer. Serum is formulated to penetrate deeper into your skin, and facial oil will nourish, moisturize and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Frankincense Intense Concentrate offers amazing anti-aging benefits. Find it here. Finishing with a good moisturizer on top of the serum and facial oil provides a layer of protection.
A thin layer of Wild Rose Beauty Balm is perfect protection from the elements if you will be outdoors, or if your skin needs some extra pampering.
The most important thing is to find a routine that works with your life style. Some days you may not have time for every step. Those days you may just cleanse, tone, moisturize. Busy mornings you may just tone and moisturize. That’s when using the best products for your skin pays off! Check out Neal’s Yard Remedies products for the face here.
