If you’ve been going for a double scoop of moisturizer lately, here’s a tip: to combat the winter flakes (and I don’t mean snow), it’s not about slathering on more and more of whatever’s in a jar on your counter right now. It’s about getting smart about the exact ingredient your skin needs the most.
We do want effective moisturizers, but when the air is cold and dry, your skin might need an extra layer in its winter wardrobe. For most skin types, this means hyaluronic acid. Your body makes it naturally on its own, but the amount decreases as we age and when the harsh air that your face is exposed to 24/7 sucks the moisture right out of your skin. How rude.
With the right percentage and delivery system for your particular skin (you are unique – like a snowflake), your body recognizes this acid as its own handy helper, allowing your skin to remain as plump as a peach in summertime. Ahhhh. Now isn’t that better?
Getting the Right Product for Your Skin
Of course, the exact hyaluronic acid product to use depends on your own needs – an oily skin type might need something like our Plump Me Up Hyaluronic serum with 75% hyluronic acid. This powerhouse of moisture uses three different molecular weights of hyluronic acid, which provides ultimate hydration and plumping for the skin without adding additional oil.
Dry skin on the other hand could use the extra oil and Vitamin C in the Bio Hydra C Serum with plant Stem Cells. This light weight, creamy serum with hyaluronic acid, 4 forms of Vitamin C and 4 different Plant Stem Cells encourages skin hydration and repair, while protecting against harmful free radicals.
And if you are hitting the slopes this season, use a protectant such as a natural silicone. Our Environmental Defense Fluid has sand derived silica and feels like silk on your skin.This serum protects against cold burn and wind and smooths surface lines, while letting the skin breathe. It also makes an excellent base for makeup.
