Like many other women, I also have my secrets to a real healthy skin. There are a few tricks that I normally follow during winter, which I have now decided to let you know about. Apart from the traditional moisturizers, exfoliators, face masks, I tend to use other products that make sure my skin is protected all through wintertime and stays smooth and fresh.
- Serum and Vitamin C
Serum is a winter’s MUST and that’s why I always apply BETA GEL from DMK every day before using any other beauty product.
I also like to mix the SPF Hydrating cream and SEBA-E Hydrating Oil from DMK with Direct Delivery Vitamin C from DMK. As you may have noticed, your skin can get Vitamin C also through the usage of a certain product, which will help boost your skin’s immunity.
In the evening, before applying the night cream, I use Stem Cell Collagen Activator from Sarah Chapman to improve skin density for a plumper, smoother and firmer appearance.
- Face mist
In order to keep my skin fresh the entire day, I tend to use a face mist over make-up. I would recommend herb & mineral mist from DMK and Moisture Surge™ Face Spray Thirsty Skin Relief from Clinique.
3. Face oil
They say that if you have oily skin you should not use any product that contains oil in it. Well, that for sure is a total lie as face oils have lots of benefits for those with oily skin. I would recommend you try these three oils below because they will hydrate, tone and balance your skin.
P50 from Biologique Recherche will never be removed from my skincare routine. I apply it in the morning and in the evening. It gently exfoliates the skin, regulates excessive sebum secretion, moisturizes and helps maintain the epidermis’ acid pH.
What a good skincare regime should contain:
With the cold weather knocking on our doors quite in a rush, I always opt for a rich formula that will protect my skin from every possible symptom.
I try to use a face mask two-three times a week. The mask is very important because it really calms and nourishes my skin. After a long day spent in the office, or between meetings, my face needs to rest and there is no better way than a good mask.
Use a balm
People always ask me how it is possible that my lips remain soft throughout the entire cold season. The answer is quite simple; a lip balm applied every day is my trick to beautiful smooth lips.
Use a hand cream
I really have no idea what I would do without a hand cream during winter. I totally hate chapped skin, so I use a hand cream like twice a day, but mostly before I go to sleep. Usually, I tend to change the type of hand creams I am using and I like to apply different ones during a day.
Never underestimate the importance of SPF, so let me tell you that you should consider SPF as your Best Friend, because your skin will always be protected no matter what.
During the winter season, SPF is a necessity for my skin, because the sun is still there and it can damage it. I would recommend 15-30 SPF protection like Protection U.V. from Biologique Recherche, Hidraplus Acido Hialuronico + Acuaporina AQP3 from Germinal with SPF 30 and DMK Sunscreen SPF 15.
Most important, do not skip a day without drinking lots of water and juices. Orange juice and pomegranate juice should be part of your healthy lifestyle.
