My skin is dry even in the summer, so the change in seasons to winter requires an even more amped up moisture routine. Even with my new supplement routine, I need something fairly rich when the heaters kick in. Granted today it was 90 here in Oklahoma, but I know a chill is just around the corner.
Another plus to added moisture – lipid depletion can add to the look of aging. So adding natural compounds like ceramides and fatty acids can enable skin to repair itself. SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 is an anti aging cream formulated with a maximized concentration of lipids: 2% pure ceramides, 4% natural cholesterol, and 2% fatty acids. These ingredients work to restore skin’s natural barrier and promote self-repair. Not to mention, this recipe can smooth and add radiance. The innovation of this product lies in the specific ratio formulation: 2:4:2 cholesterol-dominant.
I use morning and night – just a small amount between fingers warmed and melted, pressed into skin. I adore the minty scent, especially to awaken skin in the morning. This is ideal for my fellow dry skin suffers or those with sensitivity. Available at SkinCeuticals.com and right now with code OCTOBER, get a complimentary Blemish + Age Defense Sample.
Does the dry winter weather make you want to beam yourself to a lush tropical (and humid) island? I actually like the cold weather, but I could definitely stand for a little more moisture in the air. So, at the very least, I am going to make my skin feel like its drenched in ocean air.
Kate Somerville (the queen of skin care in my book) spreads the love to body care also these days. Nourish Body Perfection Cream uses plant actives to improve hydration levels almost immediately. Moisture, different from hydration, is infused with shea butter and cupuaçu fruit. Sugar cane extract helps restore dry dehydrated and sun-damaged skin (remember we are at the beach here). And botanical tea and ginger extract calm and sooth skin. My red-prone skin on my arms looks more even and supple. And the lightweight formula is quickly absorbed while leaving a fresh, marine and spa-like scent.
But Kate doesn’t stop there. She takes her anti-aging expertise past the face. One of her proven ingredients, Advanced Matrixyl 3000 works to firm aging skin and refine texture. The plant botanicals renew damaged skin. So, not only is the skin healthier but appears younger. Win-win.
I’ve been using this as soon as I get out of the shower and right before bed. I guess I can’t seem to get enough. You can purchase Nourish Body Perfection Cream at Neiman Marcus.
