Winter might not officially start until December 21st, but the cold weather is here and it is affecting your skin. Winter weather causes humidity to decrease both outdoors and indoors, and the water content of the epidermis, the outermost layer of skin, tends to reflect the level of humidity around it, resulting in dry, flaky, itchy skin.
Fortunately, a good winter skincare routine will relieve any winter dry skin, and leave you glowing.
Cleansing the skin is the first step. During the day, your skin becomes a canvas for makeup, pollution, dead skin cells, sweat and excess sebum, and at night, dead skin cells, sebum and sweat can build up on the skin. It is important to wash your face both morning and night with a hydrating cleanser. Use PURIFY ME to cleanse your skin. It contains hamamelis, which clears skin and calms redness, and shea butter, which moisturizes without clogging pores.
Since the weather is dry during the winter, it is very important that your skin receives lots of hydration to prevent dryness.
After cleansing, apply C ME Vitamin C serum. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that protects skin from free radicals and repairs damage they have caused, in turn strengthening the skin barrier. Vitamin C also brightens skin and evens skin tone, leaving your complexion smooth and radiant. C ME’s waterless formula contains both 10% VC-IP (Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate), a pure Vitamin C formula, and argan oil, which deeply hydrates skin. ApplyC ME every morning and on nights when your skin feels extra dry.
Since a winter skincare routine needs to boost hydration, apply REVIVE ME replenishing serum next. REVIVE ME contains FRÉ’s patented Argania Active Complex™, which is rich in antioxidants and fatty acids that deeply hydrate the skin. In addition, the hyaluronic acid in the serum helps the skin retain moisture and the chamomilla recutita flower makes the skin softer and more supple. ApplyREVIVE ME in the morning afterC ME and at night after cleansing.
Let’s not forget about your eye contour area. The skin around your eyes is the most delicate skin on your face and it needs special care, especially in winter. Apply BRIGHTEN ME gently along your orbital bone. The formula contains FRÉ’s patented Argania Active Complex™ and ceramide complex, which deeply hydrate the skin. It also contains patented Eyeliss, which firms skin and reduces the appearance of puffiness and wrinkles. Apply BRIGHTEN ME morning and night after applying your serums.
UV rays affect your exposed skin every day of the year, even during winter months. Make sure to protect your skin with a moisturizer with SPF. In the morning, apply PROTECT ME defense facial moisturizer with SPF 30 to protect your skin from sun damage as the last step of your skincare routine. In addition to broad spectrum SPF 30, the formula contains tocopherol, a form of Vitamin E, which moisturizes the skin.
Dry, flaky skin is a sign of a weakened skin barrier. In order to strengthen and repair your skin barrier and prevent dry skin, apply RECOVER ME nourishing night cream. The formula contains FRÉ’s patented Argania Active Complex™ and tocopherol, which deeply hydrate skin. In addition, it has niacinamide, which repairs skin damage and lavender oil, which soothes inflammation. Apply RECOVER ME every night as the last step of your skincare routine.
