Try These 6 SIMPURE Products To Soothe Winter Skin!
Before we get into our favorite winter products, let's talk about why our skin gets so irritated in the winter. Long story short, cold weather combined with low humidity allows the air around us to become so dry that it takes the moisture out of our skin to compensate... Rude, we know. So, how do you beat the dry air around you? Let us guide you.
Our first product that we recommend for the chilly, dry weather is our NEW Bubble Mask! Mixed with Green Tea extracts, this baby smells so good and is LOADED with antioxidants. Not only is this mask going to hydrate your skin, but your pores will tingle and shrink right before your eyes, blackheads and acne scars will diminish, and you can even use this gentle mask on the daily! (INSIDER TIP: We have even used it as a makeup remover and it works wonders). This mask is super fun because it is oxygenated, meaning once you apply it, the oxygen will react with the mask, forming little tiny bubbles right before your eyes. But beware, it will definitely tickle your lips and nostrils if it gets too close! When you use this mask, be sure to START your routine with it for max benefits.
Next, you are going to cleanse and tone your skin and make sure you are always bringing your products down to your neck. Check out this blog post OR try our new featured tab 'Products by Skin Type' to find the perfect products for you! You are always going to want to cleanse and tone day and night, to strip away any impurities your day or sleep have accumulated. Each of our cleansers come with an exfoliating mitt, which will help gently scrub away any dead skin cells and speed up cell turnover. When toning, we recommend using a reusable cotton pad to make sure any unwanted oil and grime are swept away, leaving your skin ready to absorb more goodies. After these steps, we are going to want to add in oils, and serums to add extra antioxidants, vitamins, and boost hydration.
Our favorite serum and oil for the cold weather are our Smooth & Silky Argireline Facial Serum and our 100% Pure Squalane Oil (derived from olives! Read more about Squalane Oil here). You can follow your serum with your oil, or use one in the morning and one at night, only use the one you prefer, or switch them every other day, whatever you find works best for your skin*! Make sure you tap/press these products into your skin instead of rubbing, making sure the benefits are being pushed inside as opposed to resting on the outside. You may think your skin would be a little sticky, but wait a few minutes and you will see your skin drink up these products, ready to be locked in with your moisturizing creams.
*If you're not sure which is best for your skin type, serum, oil, or both, check out this blog post where we break down the differences on each and what you can benefit from the most if you can't dedicate to both right now!
After all of your topicals have been applied, we are going to lock it all in and make sure it's working the entire day/night by using our REJUVENATING Facial Cream in the morning and our REVIVE Night Cream in the evening, and our Uplifting Eye Cream day and night. Start with your face creams, a little bit goes a looong way for both, and these jars are going to last you months. Apply a layer to your face and neck, and rub in any excess product to your elbows, knees or knuckles. Then, apply your eye cream (just a dollop will do) and say goodbye to fine lines and wrinkles! (We always recommend using a patch test when using products near your eyes, especially if you have sensitive skin or allergies.)
