HOW TO ‘WINTER-PROOF’ YOUR SKIN

WINTER IS HARSH…
THE WEATHER, AIR CON, HEATERS, HOT SHOWERS ALL RAVAGE YOUR SKIN MAKING IT LOOK TIRED

but don’t panic, we’re here to tell you how you can update your skincare strategies and products so your skin will radiate a youthful glow…


seasonal beauty changes

SWITCH TO SHOWERS: Long hot baths and showers strip natural oils from the skin so take quick, luke warm showers instead. They help keep good moisture balance in the skin.

DRINK UP: During the colder months we tend to reduce our water intake and replace it with comforting hot drinks like coffee, tea and hot chocolate. It’s when the water level in the skin drops by ten percent that it becomes dry, itchy and flaky. Remembering to drink one to two litres of water a day will keep skin hydrated and flake-free.

ADD SUPPLEMENTS: Evening Primrose Oil is a great supplement to take, and use on your face, as it contains an essential fatty acid that strengthens skin cells and boosts moisture content. You can also add a drop of Vitamin E oil from a capsule to your moisturiser before applying. This gives the skin an extra hydrating boost and protects its natural oil balance.

EAT MORE NUTS AND SEEDS: Also try adding a variety of nuts and seeds to your diet as they contain essential fatty acids that support skin health. Unrefined, cold-pressed flax seed oil used daily on salads and baked potatoes will also make dry skin moist and supple.


skincare strategies

EXFOLIATE: First exfoliate away dead skin cells – this helps cell renewal and stimulates blood circulation which increases oxygen and nutrients to the skin. It also allows for better absorption of moisturisers, which makes them more effective.

HYDRATE: Moisturising is a given, but the trick is to apply your moisturiser just after the shower while the skin is still a little damp – that way it traps the moisture still on your skin.

UPDATE YOUR SKINCARE: To ‘winterproof’ your skin. Olay Regenerist products are the result of Olay’s pioneer research in cellular bioenergetics, which has been featured in over 10 scientific publications, so they are the ‘biz’…

Here’s my fave winter-proof/active regime:
1. cleanse: Olay Regenerist’s Advanced Cleansing System powerfully removes long-lasting, smudge proof makeup by gently loosening, lifting and swirling the dirt away. The electronic cleansing device is genius and perfect for daily use, taking cleansing to the next level.

2. boost: Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence has Niacinamide, Olivem and Peptides to boost skin energy and allow it to absorb more anti-ageing ingredients, it’s your go-to first step in both day and night routines. When used alongside the Micro-Sculpting Cream (during the day) and the Micro-Sculpting Night Cream, it helps to boosts cell renewal to make you positively glow and look 10 years younger. #waitforthecompliments

3. sculpt: The Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Serum is infused with the highest concentration of Olay Regenerist’s signature amino-peptide complex, making it the most powerful anti-ageing product to date. The concentrated amino-peptide complex in this serum contains carnosine, an amino-peptide, which is scientifically proven to assist in wound healing and helps protect and reduce collagen damage.

4. daytime dream product: Olay Regenerist’s Micro-Sculpting UV Cream is a super-luxurious, feel-good cream. The formula features an amino-peptide complex that works to help renew the skin’s surface layers and visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by moisturising, exfoliating and smoothing the skin. I love it because it targets the three hardest {first to age} areas to treat – eye, jaw line neck. It also contains Broad Spectrum SPF30 sunscreen to protect skin from UV rays.

5. nourish at night: During the night your skin repair system increases, so it makes perfect sense to use a product that boosts this natural process. The Micro- Sculpting Night Cream is what you need to do just that! It was designed after constant consumer feedback requesting an alternative to thick, glunky night creams. It has all the key anti-ageing ingredients of Olay Regenerist for major reduction of wrinkles and plumper skin, but is has a lightweight gel-like texture that quickly absorbs without leaving a greasy residue. No more gloopy product clogging pores or sticking to your pillow. It leaves skin feeling plump and hydrated through the night, and smells amazing.
