skin care female model during winterAs the cold weather comes in it starts to take a toll on your skin, which is why skin care is so important at this time of year.  With the right skin care and a little bit of help from a few key products, you can protect your skin and hands and banish wind chapped skin and lips.

Protect Those Lips

Dermalogica Climate Control is a therapeutic balm formulated with an exclusive Anti-Ozonate Complex to help damaged skin recover from environmental assaults while providing a barrier against future climate impacts. It’s formulated without artificial fragrances and colours, calms and soothes whilst protecting the skin so it’s suitable for even the most sensitive of skins and conveniently packaged to slip into a pocket or bag. Gently glide Climate Control over the lips at least once a day or as needed to protect. At £8.10 it’s a steal as it’s also a multipurpose product that can be applied on any dry area to provide instant relief. Great for year round protection it’s fantastic before flying or any outdoor activities to guard against the elements. So a real hero product and an essential part of your skin care regime!

Heal and Protect Hands and Nails

Correct skin care for the hands is important so don’t neglect your hands all year round, especially in the winter! Protect and look after them and they won’t reveal their age. Consider how often you wash your hands throughout the day. Antibacterial hand wash and gels really dry your hands out so remember to apply hand cream every time you wash your hands and especially if you use antibacterial soaps. Wear gloves for washing up and always wear gloves in cold weather.

Dermalogica Multi Vitamin Hand and Nail Treatment is an intense, non-greasy treatment of botanicals and vitamins to protect and repair chapped hands whilst strengthening nails against splitting and peeling. It contains no artificial fragrances or colour so excellent for sensitive skins.

Look after your skin!

Your skin needs often changes throughout the year. Change your skin care products if the ones you normally use aren’t as effective anymore.  In winter, your skin’s needs may be different to the summer so don’t be afraid to try something more moisturising or hydrating if your skin is starting to feel a bit tight. As Dermalogica skin care therapists we recommend Face mapping every 3 months to assess your skin’s concerns. It’s free to have done and we can supply samples to try at home or even try out at the skinbar.  If you need an extra boost but don’t have much time, a Dermalogica Microzone can offer targeted treatments in just 20 minutes and costs only £20.

Don’t Forget SPF is your friend

Remember winter doesn’t mean don’t wear SPF! Just because the sun is gone there is still a risk of sun damage. Always wear SPF 30 or more to combat the signs of aging and sun damage and in return your skin will thank you for it.
