5 Essentials for Great Winter Skin
For many of us, our skin needs change in the cold months. Fine-tune your care regimen to stay hydrated and look healthy:
Turn down the heat
The long, hot baths or showers you might love in the winter are pulling moisture from your skin. Stick to warm water and limit bathing to 10 minutes. This will help avoid over-drying skin on your arms, legs and body.
Leverage your cleanser
Using a cleanser that won’t disturb key oils in the skin is essential to hydration in the winter. Try an Epionce cleanser for your skin type, made with gentle ingredients to help maintain moisture. The Milky Lotion Cleanser in particular leaves the skin feeling silky smooth. All three Epionce cleansers are formulated to wash away impurities and reduce imperfections, without stripping the skin.
Try a more hydrating Renewal Facial product
If your favorite Renewal Facial product isn’t giving you enough hydration, consider switching to Intensive Nourishing Cream. Ingredients in this Renewal Facial product make it suitable for any skin type. Try applying as a night cream to get the benefits of extra hydration if it’s too heavy under makeup for the day.
More moisture all over
To give thirsty skin extra moisture, spray Balancing Toner on arms, legs and body after showering. Finish with deeply hydrating Extreme Barrier Cream. Humectants in Balancing Toner help retain moisture, while Extreme Barrier Cream coats skin with a soothing layer of hydration.
Keep your sunscreen routine
Help prevent visible signs of aging every day by applying Active Shield Lotion SPF 30+ under makeup. Broad-spectrum protection helps defend against ultraviolet rays that lead to the visible appearance of fine lines.
