Supercharge Your Skin For Winter - Elm Beauty

Swap Your Cleanser

Why: Since your skin is already lacking moisture, you don’t want to strip it of natural oils with stronger cleansers.

Cream cleansers are gentler on dry skin and have moisture built right in!

If you have oily skin, dry winter air may not affect you as severely.

However, if you already have dry skin, you may dread cold weather months.

If your skin is super thirsty, consider using a cleansing oil to dissolve dirt and makeup without drying out skin!

Slough off that Dry skin

Why: Regularly exfoliating during winter months can be great for skin! It helps to eliminate dead skin cells to banish dull skin and reveal a glowing complexion.

However, physical exfoliants – the kind that use granules to physically scrub off dead skin cells – can be too harsh for already vulnerable winter skin and result in damage or further dryness.

Instead, try a chemical exfoliator. Don’t let the name scare you. It’s actually a formula that uses alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), or enzymes to gently dissolve the top layer of dead skin and wash it away.

Perfect Timing

Now Ladies is the perfect time of the year for You to Try Retinol.

As the evenings are getting darker and there is less sunlight out its the perfect timing to try it for yourself.  Designed for Advanced efficacy and stability, SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.3 is formulated with a PURE Retinol. Our innovative system captures and stablises Retinol without enclosing it to ensure the FULL Dosage is slowly and evenly released. It stimulates cell Regeneration and the appearence of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots from both photo – and intrinsic – ageing.

Supercharge your skin give it a try!

TRY a Serum

Why: For realsies. If you haven’t already incorporated a serum into your skincare routine, you might be missing out on some uber moisturizing and anti-aging benefits.

Serums are thinner in consistency, but contain a potent concentration of active ingredients to pack a punch and target skin concerns.

And, this includes dry skin. Serums containing hyaluronic acid use this powerful humectant to grab moisture out of the air and hold it to your skin’s surface to deliver deep, lasting hydration.

Serums are applied before you moisturiser to allow ingredients to really absorb into skin and provide max results. Infact Decleor Serums help to Triple Boost your Moisturizer, to really help with hydration levels in the skin.

A hydrating serum is the perfect way to give some moisturizing and anti-aging benefits to protect against dry winter air!

Did You Know?…

“Skin regeneration is at its height between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m.When the body is in a deep, restful sleep, the skin’s metabolism increases, and cell turnover and renewal escalates.And that’s why sleeping packs and overnight masks are the “holy grail” for people with dry skin, as the body’s hydration re balances while you’re sleeping. Basically, serums and creams create a permeable seal on top of your skin, and then the overnight mask ensures you don’t lose water while you sleep. They’re also great for issues that would need a bit more work like fine lines and wrinkles, or sustained results.
