While dry skin might seem inevitable in the winter season, sometimes it can take more than just moisturizing. Even though we moisturize and use several serums and creams we apply, dry skin remains parched without the benefits of gentle exfoliation, high-quality skincare and proper application. Keep reading for three key tips that keep your skin hydrated, especially during the winter.
3 Go-to Tips to Keep your Skin Hydrated this Winter
1. Prepare Your Dry Skin to Take in the Moisture
Just like skin prep before makeup application, you need to do the proper skin preparation for your skin to take in moisture. Face Toners are a must-have prep step in any routine, especially to remove dead skin cells and promote cell turnover. Hydrating serums and moisturizers can not reach the skin if blocked by dead skin cells!
This award-winning toner is known as the complexion perfector, not only for its acne-reducing benefits but for its nourishing properties as well. D22 contains birch water extract, also called birch sap or birch juice which is used to hydrate, soothe, starve off inflammation and encourage collagen growth. In addition, the grape flower cell extract works to reconstruct damaged or broken skin tissue, reduce redness and strengthen the skin barrier. D22 Tonic can be used both morning and night for gentle exfoliation, tightening and luminous skin.
For those with thick and dull skin types, this restructuring lotion is a great restructuring option. It can be used as a supplement with Lotion P50 to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, firm and hydrate the skin. If you are wanting that extra boost, after applying your Lotion P50, dampen a fresh cotton pad with the Lotion MC 110 and press into the face; focusing on any fine lines or wrinkles.
For true hydration, this toner uses plant extract to assist in moisturizing and hydrating the skin after application. In addition, it helps to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, leaving the skin looking even and refreshed.
