When the seasons change, we are forced to recon with dramatic shifts in the environment. As we acclimate to colder, dryer weather, it is important to adjust our wellness, beauty, and skincare routine. Colder weather brings on a flurry of skincare concerns. But, with the right products, they are easy to combat, and can often be prevented before they appear.
Moisturize – Dry, sensitive winter skin will benefit from serums that are rich in hyaluronic acid and moisturizers that are soothing and rich. Add half a pump of Osmosis Immerse to your daily/nightly moisturizer to give your skin a huge boost of hydration and moisture.
Gently exfoliate – During winter you should still exfoliate your skin; however, it is not necessary to do it with the same zeal as you did in warmer, sweatier months. Beware of aggressive chemical peels or procedures that put your skin at risk of excessive peeling and sensitivity. Look for fruit acid-based scrubs. The enzymes from these scrubs remove that top layer of skin while still sealing in moisture. Try the Osmosis Polish Mask once a week to gently exfoliate with the use of enzymes.
Use an eye treatment – A thick, balmy eye treatment will keep your sensitive eye area flake free. Osmosis Refresh PM is a deep moisturizing treatment that can be used around orbits of the eyes. It also makes for an incredible lip and cuticle treatment.
Keep your spirits up – Be mindful of seasonal depression and how cold, dreary weather can affect our overall wellbeing. Get plenty of D and B vitamins to help elevate your mood and energy level. We love the Osmosis Body Talk Harmonized Water and Elevate Dietary Supplement.
Drink water – Increasing your water intake will help keep your body functioning. It is important to flush out toxins so our skin can stay healthy.
Change your makeup – Avoid powder foundations, which can exacerbate dry skin during cold winter months. Try the Osmosis CC Cream. It delivers flawless coverage, moisture, and protection.Use a refresher spray – Give your complexion a nice re-up of hydration. Osmosis Clear and Clear Plus is perfect to use during the day to help your skin combat dryness.
Use sunscreen – SPF should be used year-round. Shield your skin with Osmosis Protect; Ultra-Sheer SPF 30.
