Tips For Winter Skin

What can I do to minimize the effects of Winter on my skin?

Winter brings its own unique challenges for keeping skin smooth and soft, here are 5 tips for having your best skin all season long.

1. Shorten Your Shower

Hot water and steam dries out your skin. I know, you have a lot of accomplish in the shower from washing and conditioning hair to hair removal, not to mention the relaxing benefits of a nice hot shower. But shortening your shower by as little as 3-5 minutes, or even just turning down the temperature can minimize the drying effect on your skin.

Bonus Tip – Lock in moisture by applying lotion or bath oil immediately after your shower.  Keep some Skin So Soft Bath Oil or Body Lotion as close to your shower as possible for easy access. 


2. Check Your Cleanser – for face and for body

Switch to a more moisturizing cleanser, even if just for a few days a week.  For face try the belif Aqua Bomb Jelly Cleanser or Anew Ultimate Cream Cleanser. For body go for a creamier body wash like the Skin So Soft Creamy Body Washes or a more gentle body wash like the Moisture Therapy +Balance and Soothe Body Wash


 3. Exfoliate Regularly

Exfoliating should be part of your regular routine year round, but in winter you may find you need to do it more often. If you have normal skin with no sensitivities then you can use choose manual exfoliation with the Isa Knox Anew Clinical Collagen Booster Microneedling Polisher, or a chemical exfoliator like the Anew Clinical Extra Strength Retexturizing Peel. If you have sensitive skin it’s easy to over do it so your best choice is a mild washcloth soaked in warm water. 

 

4. Amp Up Your Moisturizer

Go for a heavier formula, switch from gel or lotion to a cream. For body Skin So Soft Shea Butter Body Butter is a wintertime must have and Moisture Therapy +Balance and Soothe Body Cream moisturizes and soothes skin. For face choose the cream version on your favorite day lotion, or add 1-2 drops of a facial oil, like Green Goddess Facial Oil to your regular moisturizer.  For an extra boost of moisture, add on of our Hydra Fusion serums to your routine.


 

 5. Wear SPF and Protect

Of course you should wear SPF year round but it can be easy to skip when the days aren’t so sunny.  But just as many damaging rays get through the cloud cover as they do on a bright day, and if you are enjoying a day in the snow, snow reflects the sun, increasing your exposure.  Be sure to include a day cream with SPF or add our Anew Hydra Fusion Daily Beauty Defense Lotion SPF 50

Bonus Tip – Don’t forget your lips! Nourish your lips with the Anew Vitamin C Antioxidant Lip Treatment and for sun protection Beyond Color Lip Conditioner boosts moisture and has SPF 15

What’s the best skincare regimen for oily skin?

People with oily skin have to strike a delicate balance between moisturizing their skin and addressing the signs of aging while still maintaining a shine free complexion.  Here are a few products that will help with that balancing act. 

  Let’s start with the cleanser.  You want a cleanser that effectively removes the oil along with any dirt and makeup but doesn’t strip skin of vital moisture. 

 

My top recommendation for cleanser is the Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser.  Rice Water is enriched with vitamins, minerals and ceramide to help skin feel moisturized and look radiant. 


If your oily skin is also acne prone, then I would recommend the Dr Belmeur Foaming Cleanser. This gentle foaming cleanser with amino acid based ingredients helps remove pore clogging impurities.


Another great cleansing option for any skin, can also do double duty as a toner.  Anew Hydra Fusion Micellar Water is a no rinse cleanser that is soap, oil and alcohol free.  Use alone on those times where you just need a refresher, for example in the mornings when you’ve thoroughly cleansed the night before.  Use as a toner after any cleanser to remove any lingering cleanser residue or last traces of makeup and dirt. 

 

Next you’ll need a good moisturizer.  A lot of people with oily skin think that they don’t need moisturizer.  In fact oil and water are different things and our skin needs both to look and feel healthy.

There is one moisturizer that I recommend to anyone with oily or even combination skin.  

belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb is perfect for oily skin.  This ultra-lightweight, water-based gel-cream instantly cools and refreshes skin while providing intense hydration. The time-trusted herbal formula not only help minimize the appearance of pores it also helps prevent excess oil secretion and keep a balanced moisture level. What is just as nice about this formula is what it doesn’t have, it’s free from parabens, sulfates, phthalates, mineral oils and it is Dermatologist-tested.
 
 

If you are looking for anti-aging benefits we’ve got you covered there too.  The Isa Knox Anew LX Ultimate Rejuvenating Serum and Day Cream both pack a real age-defying punch without leaving skin oily and shiny. The Anew LX Ultimate collection harnesses the power of peonies to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve the skins tone, texture and clarity. 


 

If you like a multi-tasking product the Anew Vitamin C Illuminating Priming Moisturizer brightens and primes your skin while it moisturizes. Get a healthy, dewy glow while improving and extending makeup wear.

Of course you want to finish with an SPF 

Our best SPF product for oily skin is the Anew Vitale Day Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 25.  This air-light, oil-free lotion leaves skin feeling moisturized with a shine-free, matte finish. Bonus benefits include evening skin tone, minimizing the look or pores, and fights the signs of stress and fatigue.


All of these can be layered if you want to combine the benefits of multiple products while still maintaining that shine free finish.

Skin Sins to Avoid

Skin Sins

Although skin starts aging the moment you’re born, the signs generally don’t start appearing until you’re around 30. While you can’t stop skin from aging completely, you can keep it looking youthful longer. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

The Sun
Aging specifically caused by UV rays is called photoaging. Sun exposure dries skin, thickens the epidermis and slows down cell renewal, which leads to fine lines, wrinkles and uneven tone. Avoid the sun when possible and wear SPF daily.
 
Smoking
Smoking deprives skin of nutrients and oxygen, leaving it looking dull and lifeless. Smoking also causes harmful free radicals, which weaken collagen and elasticity, accelerating the aging process.

Stress and Lack of Sleep
Stress and lack of sleep can lead to dryness, sensitivity, acne, excess oil or lackluster skin.  Getting enough restorative sleep is vital to give your skin time to repair and rejuvenate.

Pollution

Pollutants in the air coat skin with grime that can block pores. Free radicals can break down skin’s structure, leading to wrinkles, roughness, dehydration and loss of elasticity.

Shop Avon Neutralize Anti Pollution Collection to Protect Skin from Environmental Assault

 
 

Facial Expressions

The 15,000 facial expressions you make every day can damage skin. Frowning, smiling, squinting – the constant movement of facial muscles causes skin fibers to slacken. Over time these creases become wrinkles.

Shop Isa Knox Anew Clinical Collagen Booster Collection to smooth expression lines

Everyday Diet

Fast food, sugar and empty calories can wreck your skin. The more nutrient dense your diet is, the healthier your skin will be.  Eat foods rich in essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants. 

 

Sleep Positions

The way you sleep can increase the appearance of wrinkles. Side sleeping can cause lines on your chin and cheeks.  Sleeping face down can create lines on your forehead. Sleeping on your back is the best way to prevent lines.

Can’t help sleeping on your side or face down? Shop Isa Knox Anew LX Rejuvenating Collection to fight those lines and wrinkles

 
 
Going to Sleep with Makeup On
Our skin naturally renews and repairs at night, and not washing off the remains of your makeup at the end of the day can impede that process. It can also cause clogged pores and eye irritation.

The Beauty of a Skin Regimen

 

The Beauty of a Skin Regimen

Following a consistent skin care routine is the bet way to achieve radiant results everyone will notice. Luckily, it’s as simple as these four steps.

Step 1:

Cleanse

Cleansing skin helps eliminate excess oil, debris and makeup while refreshing skin. Thoroughly wash with your cleanser and gently rinse with warm water. Be sure to wash your hands as well to avoid transfer of bacteria or other contaminants to your face or product containers.

Step 2:

Treat

Concentrated and powerful, treatments deliver results targeted toward specific skin concerns. Apply your treatment to dry skin after cleansing. If using more than one treatment, apply the lightest formula first.

 

Step 3:

Moisturize

A day moisturizer hydrates and protects skin, while night creams help repair and rejuvenate. Apply your moisturizer by using small, firm circular movements, taking care to avoid the delicate eye area. Be sure to include an SPF product for daytime to protect against sun damage.

 

Step 4:

Eye

Designed to work for the eye area, eye creams and treatments help correct the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, sagging or crow’s feet. Use your ring finger to gently apply cream, starting at the inner corner of the eye, moving outward, and then above the eye and below the brow.
