REGENERATED SKIN RECIPE: 10 WINTER SKIN GLOW TIPS
It may be hard to avoid dull, dehydrated skin in winter, but it certainly isn’t impossible! With a few small changes to your lifestyle and skincare routine, you can keep your complexion glowing all winter long!
Switch to a non-drying cleanser
When the weather is really chilly, your regular gel cleanser just won’t do. Opt instead for a comforting oil that removes every last trace of makeup and pollution from your skin without drying it out. Biotherm Total Renew Oil transforms from a luxurious oil into a purifying foam to double cleanse skin in one go for totally renewed, glowing skin each day.
Skip the hot water
A nice long soak in a piping hot bath might feel great, but it’s one of the quickest ways to dehydrate your skin. Not only does hot water strip away the protective oils that naturally moisturize one’s skin, the disappearance of these oils makes it easier for water to escape from the lower levels of your epidermis. When it comes to washing your body and face, try to stick with lukewarm water instead.
Introduce a skin healing essence
Anyone can benefit from the use of a powerful regenerating face essence like Biotherm Life Plankton™ Essence. Formulated with the highest percentage of healing Life Plankton™ from the thermal springs of the French Pyrenees mountains, this lightweight watery essence penetrates deep into your skin to soothe inflammation, heal imperfections, and accelerate cellular renewal for smooth newborn skin in eight days.
Opt for a seasonal moisturizer
If dry skin is your main concern in winter, then why not adopt a moisturizing face cream specifically formulated to combat seasonal dryness? Biotherm Aquasource Cocoon combines the freshness of a gel with the nurturing comfort of a balm to deeply hydrate and protect your skin all day long. A stunning combination of healing Life Plankton™ and illuminating Mannose™ to transform even the most dehydrated skin.
Consider investing in a humidifier
Indoor heating causes dry hair, which then zaps moisture from our skin. To maintain optimal skin hydration, you might want to consider investing in a humidifier at home to replenish moisture back into the air. You’ll benefit particularly by having it in the bedroom as our skin loses most of its hydration at night due to a process called transepidermal water loss.
Use a hydrating serum
Serums are an important part of any skincare routine as they usually contain the highest percentage of active ingredients and are formulated to penetrate deep into the skin to work at the cellular level. Biotherm Aquasource Aura Concentrate is a 90% natural bi-phase serum that delivers intense hydration to strengthen the skin barrier for healthy, dewy skin. Mix it into your daily moisturizer for maximum moisture or apply it onto the high points of your face for glowing skin the natural skincare way!
Don’t forget the SPF
You might not see much of the sun these days, but that doesn’t mean your skin is completely protected from UV rays. Biotherm Urban Defense is a lightweight beautifying base with SPF 50 to provide broad spectrum protection while color-correcting your skin tone. The four shades (strobing, unevenness, anti-yellowish, and anti-redness) bridge the gap between skincare and makeup for perfectly unified, protected skin.
Drink plenty of water
It might seem obvious but drinking water is a great way to stay hydrated and flush out toxins from the body. Consider starting each day with a cup of hot lemon-ginger water to invigorate your senses and quench your body.
Exfoliate away dull skin
Dehydrated skin accelerates the life cycle of our skin cells so they die more rapidly. These dead skin cells then build up on the surface of our skin, causing our complexion to become dull in appearance. An exfoliating cleanser like Biotherm Biosource Gelée Micellaire is a great way to restore radiance and smooth skin texture. All you have to do is apply the gel to damp skin and massage it in to eliminate impurities and gather up dead cells before rinsing it off to reveal glowing skin.
Take some “me time”
The earlier evenings are a perfect opportunity to carve out some time for self care. Two to three nights a week, treat your body and mind to simple luxuries like hair masks, face masks, a relaxing yoga session, or a bit of journaling to help clear your head and calm your spirit for an inner glow that can’t be compared!
