Taking good care of your skin should be a year round objective, but it becomes particularly important in winter. Even if you don’t like using products on your daily routine — especially all the guys reading this right now — winter is a time where it’s a must! The wind, cold and lack of moisture can have a real unpleasant impact in your skin.
This post, sponsored by Walmart, is to help you understand the path for amazing skin: for yourself or your loved ones, since gift-giving season is in full swing. I’d honestly be on cloud 9 with any of these instead of socks for the holidays, ‘cause face over feet.. amirite!? 🙂
Here’s the products I use, to hydrate, soften and protect me from the harsh winter conditions our skin has to endure!
Starting off with the most important product you can get for your skin: a good moisturizer. Again, even if you don’t have a skin care routine, you should make an exception at least for this one product.
I use Dermalogica Intensive Moisture Balance, which has antioxidant enzymes that help shield your skin from the environmental assault it’ll suffer through winter and at the same time smoothies the appearance of dry lines and skin damage! Use it morning and night, but can reapply any time you feel like you need moisture (because you will!)
Now if you’re like me and you want to have baby skin even in winter (going that extra mile) lets talk about serums. Serums should be applied directly to your face (you don’t want to lose precious product between your fingers) before the moisturizer to deliver the ingredients straight into your skin. I recommend two from SkinCeuticals that can change your skin (and your LIFE) for the better!
The first one is SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic. It’s packed with vitamin C + E antioxidants to protect your skin from environmental damage caused by free radicals plus it improves the signs of aging, photo damage, while brightening your skins complexion. I use it once in the morning before my moisturizer. I swear it has been a game changer in my skin appearance, and bonus: it smells like BBQ.
The second serum is SkinCeuticals H. A. Intensifier. It has a high concentration of hyaluronic acid (H.A.), which is a naturally occurring skin acid that helps maintain good moisture, plumpness, elasticity and texture. Production in our skin starts to decline in our 20s, making it important to replenish it if you don’t want signs of early aging to set or if you want these symptoms to lessen. It can be used twice a day, I personally use it at night but it can also be used in the morning after the SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic serum if you want to boost your hydration.
While we’re on the topic of hydration, let’s talk about the part of my face that suffers THE MOST with winter. My poor lips. If you’re me you need a good lip balm. I use Biotherm replumping and smoothing lip balm. I know many men (including me) have issues with most products leaving their lip too shinny/glossy, but not with this one! The soft butter-like texture smoothes your lip leaving a matte finish which is perfect for men!
Last but not least, my go-to face mask! Face masks have different purposes but you’ll see this one covers most of them. Peter Thomas Roth 24k Gold Mask is an incredible gold infused mask leaving skin looking silky, smooth, firm, radiant, revitalized and youthful. Known from the time of Cleopatra to have powerful anti aging benefits, 24k gold helps improve and calm the appearance of firmness and leaves an opulent glow. Combined with Caffeine, Peridot (rich in magnesium), Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin it tightens, re-energizes, reduces the look of aging, stress and gives you an intense hydration.
