Step 1: Cleansing
Suffering from dry winter skin? A cleansing oil or balm can slide dirt and makeup off without stripping you of your natural moisture. Look for one with soothing ingredients like argan oil and vitamin E to nourish and protect.
Step 2: Exfoliate
If dullness is your winter skin pet peeve, be sure you’re exfoliating one or more times per week. Depending on your skin’s sensitivity, you might opt for a chemical (think lactic, glycolic, and fruit acids) or a physical (as in a microdermabrasion tool or products with ingredients like pumice or ground nuts/nut shells) exfoliant.
Step 3: Treat
Now that you’ve got a clean canvas, your skin is primed to take in treatment products like serums and masks that deliver potent ingredients like vitamin C or hyaluronic acid to brighten and/or lock in moisture.
Step 4: Moisturize
A cold and dry climate can leave your complexion craving more moisture. Lightweight formulas are great for oilier skin types, but if your on the dry side, try something with a richer, more emollient texture. And don’t forget to moisturize your under eyes too with a product that’s formulated specifically for this delicate area. This step also helps to lock in your previous treatment products and add a protective barrier that retains moisture levels.
Step 5: Massage
Another way to banish dullness and get glowing is incorporating some light facial massage. This can get your blood flowing, which gives you an instant glow and can decrease puffiness by flushing out excess fluid. The relaxing nature of this step also may help you feel more soothed and calm.
