Dry Skin Solution To The Cold Winter Weather with Skindinavia!
With our cold snap taking hold, it's not the best news if you have dry skin as the cold winter air can make it even worse. The result is often fading, creasing or settling of your makeup into fine lines and pores. There are a couple obvious solutions to help keep your skin and your makeup moist.
One is to moisturize regularly and the other is to use a sulfate free makeup remover at night. You don't need to go for super expensive moisturisers and makeup removers. As long as they both include a few key ingredients you are in good shape.
Here are three very basic ideas that are the cornerstone to keeping skin young -
1. Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise!!! Even if you are 25 years old or 55 years old, choose a quality moisturiser with some SPF, but don’t be fooled that ANY good moisturiser is an anti-aging treatment.
Now you do not need to spend £100 for a quality moisturizer, but don’t be silly enough to think the £5 products are just as good. Look for some basic quality ingredients like aloe, shea butter and hyaluronic acid. One other specific ingredient to seek out is NaPCA, which mimics the salt in your skin, it has hygroscopic properties that pull moisture to itself, which is constantly hydrating.
2. Invest in an excellent makeup remover. If you sleep with makeup on, it will continue to dehydrate your skin through the night. Use a top quality, sulfate free, makeup remover.
3. Turn your foundation into a moisturizing treatment. Skindinavia have come up with a pretty novel idea, which is to turn the foundation you have on into a moisturizing treatment. Instead of drying, it can actually turn your foundation into a secondary moisturizer. That doesn’t mean a watery mess, it means greatly slowing down the foundation’s ability to steal moisture, and then have it give back the water it takes. This may sound complicated to achieve, but it’s actually really simple.
Skindinavia's 10 Years Younger Makeup Finish is designed to prevent foundation from drying out, simply spritz it 2-4 times over finished makeup. It takes about 3 seconds to do.
It chills the makeup surface which causes drying to slow down greatly, and then it is loaded with a six hydrators that bring more needed moisture to the makeup surface. The result is glowing, dewy foundation that holds in place up to 16 hours. Use this and a quality moisturizer and the difference will amaze you!
