Winter is here and so often clients complain of skin that is dry and dull. Their spirit is worn down by winter blues and their skin shows signs of lethargy. So how do I keep my glow you ask? Here it is, inside and out!
First, I start with increasing my colored foods, even if I’m not in the mood. This means eating or drinking more greens, more orange, red and purple. For example a kale salad with beets, orange and red bell peppers, throw in some nuts and you have a party! Two of my favorite local restaurants, Milah and Pure Fare help me keep my diet colorful, especially on the go! Or, my all time favorite is Pangaea Earth Foods, for phyto nutrient packed juices that are fresh, organic and raw! In about a week of incorporating juice supplements into your diet, you will notice a gradual elevation in energy, mood and glowing skin! Promise.
Secondly, I take a Nordic Naturals omega 3, plus D3 supplement daily, this helps with maintaining the skins immune system. It is great for spikes in eczema or psoriasis. Talk to your doctor or nutritionist to see if omega 3’s could benefit you!
Next, you got it , P50 by Biologique Recherche! This product exfoliates, hydrates and evens out skin tone, giving you back that luster. Here’s a little secret, sometimes in winter if my skin is feeling exceptionally sensitive, I dilute my cotton round with a little water to make the sting a little less intense. It’s a great way to ease the P50 bite during harsh winter months.
Then, of course you must serum! Serums are equivalent of taking a supplement or vitamin, but on the face. Sometimes, your moisturizer simply can’t do it all. Serums can either go on top of, or underneath of your moisturizer. Currently I am using Infinite Radiance Essence by Valmont. Ask your esthetician today for suggestions on a serum that’s right for you, mention this blog post and receive 10% off your next serum purchase, or use promo code TIRZAH on shoprescuespa.com for 10% off on your serum purchase.
Finally, I have two products that are truly essential to maintaining my glow in the winter, first, for my face it’s my Bare Minerals All-over Face color. This is a magical loose powder that I typically use everyday. It has a luminescent quality, great for sensitive skin types, and lightly conceals skin imperfections with out that heavy foundation feel. It’s free of just about everything and it’s high mineral content gives you gentle sun and free radical protection. It’s my secret to keeping my summer glow, even in winter! *must be applied with large cheek brush for best result. Dip, shake and dust.
And last but definitely not least, is Weleda’s Calendula Body Wash For Baby. You don’t have to have kids to buy this product! This is a best kept secret, it’s a baby body wash that I use on my body in the shower daily. It’s wonderful for skin that is sensitive, dry, itchy etc… This body wash is a silky, luxurious texture that is formulated with hand-picked Biodynamic calendula, it soothes dry winter skin, eczema, or if you just want to maintain healthy glowing skin all year long. Get rid of your pH stripping, hard, moisturizing soaps and give this wonderful healing body wash a whirl!
Well, there you have it, this is how I keep my glow in winter! Try one or all of these suggestions and you won’t be disappointed!
Happy and healthy New Year!
