Dull winter skin is not something we look forward to…EVER. Harsh weather can strip the skin, making it more dehydrated and sensitive. In spite of this, you can save yourself from gloomy skin with our expert tips. It’s time to flaunt soft, glowing skin!
1. Go Soap Free!
No, we aren’t suggesting you don’t wash. It is a chilly skin sin to use soap, especially on your delicate face. Try using a pea-sized amount of USANA Celavive® Creamy Foam Cleanser to wash away the day.
2. Don’t Get Too Hot & Steamy
Even the best of us enjoy a long steamy shower on the coldest nights. However, remember that hot water can irritate and dry out your skin. Okay, so we know you’re probably going to still have a hot shower every now and then, but try to cut down on shower time and not have the temperature up too high. Swap this warm indulgence with a hot water bottle, your fluffiest blanket and herbal tea.
3. Hyaluronic Acid for the Winter Win
Use products with hyaluronic acid (Hi there, USANA Celavive® Perfecting Toner). It can hold 1,000x its weight in water.1 Can’t you just feel the hydration?
4. Whip out the Body Cream
We’re talking body! Apply a body cream straight after showering to lock in moisture. If you haven’t tried USANA®’s Firming Body Nourisher, now is the time! It nourishes and sweeps away dry skin with delicious ingredients like shea butter, Irish moss, mallow, whole grape and green tea extracts. Perfect to help counteract environmental exposure.
5. Always Wear SPF
Although it might not all be blue skies and rainbows, it’s still vital to wear SPF in winter. We might not feel the warmth—unfortunately—, but UVA and UVB rays can still damage your skin.
USANA Celavive® Moisturising Day Cream with Sunscreen (SPF15) is a great SPF moisturiser option with rich hydration or Moisturising Day Lotion with Sunscreen (SPF15) is perfect for lightweight, yet nourishing results. Both these products feature a botanical blend that has been clinically shown to provide 24 hours of rich hydration after just one application!
6. Drink More Water
Well, this one is kind of obvious, but it’s a crucial step in staying hydrated, and therefore keeping our skin looking healthy. Make sure you hydrate your skin from within by having your water bottle with you at all times so you can sip away thirst. If you struggle to drink enough water, you could try out our tasty fruit-infused water recipes!
7. Supplements for Your Skin!
Proflavanol® C 100 and BiOmega™ are two dietary supplements that should be a must for your daily beauty routine, helping you go beyond skin deep and maintain a healthy-looking complexion.
A deficiency in essential fatty acids can mean dry and dreary skin. Top up your fatty acids with a high quality fish oil, to help keep your skin hydrated and even help with inflammation.
If Proflavanol® C 100 isn’t on your skin wish list, then write it down! Vitamin C is great for helping to maintain healthy skin due to its antioxidant benefits and its role in collagen synthesis.
