Winning The Beauty War This Winter

15 Jan 2015

  • Winter is a brutal time for our skin. To beat the harsh weather it’s essential to have a battle plan and support your skin as it fights against the cool conditions. Joyce Beauty recommends a three- step winter survival guide of exfoliating, hydrating, and lifting, from the arsenal of this season’s must-have products.

    Step 1: Exfoliate

    It’s crucial to start your routine by removing dead skin cells, promoting new cell turnover and preparing your skin for the rich infusions and powerful serums in steps 2 and 3.

    For a winter transformation at home, try RéVive Glycolic Renewal Peel Professional System. On busy days and before last minute events, Glamglow Youthmud Tingexfoliate Treatment provides a 10-minute ‘facial in a jar’ with camera-ready results. Radical Skincare Age-Defying Exfoliating Pads are an easy exfoliation solution, the AHA and BHA-formula work to remove dead skin, promote cell turnover and simultaneously preserve the beneficial oils your skin relies on for nourishment – the ultimate winter combination. Rodial X-treme After-Party Scrub is a 3-in-1 micro polish that shows immediate results. Using glycolic and salicylic acids, the polish buffs away dead skin and unclog pores so treatment creams can penetrate the skin.

    Step 2: Hydrate

    Next, powerful next-generation serums and luscious creams drench pre-prepared skin with hydrating, professional, potent infusions.

    Omorovicza Blue Diamond Concentrate is a luxurious serum that glides on like cashmere, delivering a diamond-infused peptide to provide instant lift and lasting hydration. The serum experts at Darphin have innovated Darphin Hydraskin Intensive Skin-Hydrating Serum specifically for cold weather. It’s part of an intensive hydration line designed to visibly eliminate dehydration lines and roughness. For those preferring a cream, 3Lab WW Cream features a wrinkle-fighting proprietary complex derived from all natural ingredients that boost skin hydration and prevent moisture loss. Tatcha Ageless Enriching Renewal Cream is ideal for dry skin and winter conditions. It’s rich in Red Algae and Hyaluronic Acid that, together, provide intensive moisture.

    Step 3: Reshape

    Perfectly prepared and hydrated skin is given an added boost, defying gravity and lifting to a youthful exuberance with ground breaking technologies.

    The latest lifting creams deliver an extraordinary remodeling effect. Natura Bissé High Density Lift is at the forefront with a tension mesh effect that creates an internal lifting action for incredible results. Wei Beauty Manuka Bee Venom Anti Wrinkle Mask uses a complex mixture of five enzymes and eight peptides, including bee venom, to improve elasticity. Boosting skin from the inside out, Perricone MD Skin & Total Body Dietary Supplements nourish skin with vital nutrients over a 30-day program to deliver a healthy glow. On the device front, NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device is a spa quality treatment in the privacy of your own home with professional results.
