Layering winter skincare for sensitive and problem skin
When dressing for cold weather, you layer your clothes, starting with light and thin closest to the body and adding heavier garments in layers. Well, the same goes for skincare - start with the lightest products and layer on products with a heavier consistency.
During the cold winter months the air humidity levels drop and your skin feels dry. What you're experiencing is an increase in TEWL, transepidermal waterloss. This process can be slowed down with the right products to help lock in the moisture in your skin and avoid itchiness and redness. Here are our top tips for layering winter skincare when dealing with sensitive or problem skin.
Opt for a more gentle cleanser that both cleanses and restores the skin. Our mild Milk Cleanser is made with nourishing canola oil and conditioning xylitol to gently cleanse your skin, leaving it feeling both fresh and comfortable.
Start the layering by adding hydration to your skin. Our sprayable Face Toner balances, hydrates, soothes and conditions with multitasking, natural ectoin, smoothing sea kelp and calming liquorice root for skin that feels ready to go.
Add a second layer of moisturising facial cream. Our Face Cream is a light gel-cream, with plant-derived humectants glycerin and sodium pca to quench thirsty skin and colloidal oatmeal to prevent the water loss we mentioned before.
Now seal in the moisture in your skin with oil. Our Face Oil is an easily absorbed mixture of repairing argan oil, softening oat oil, soothing raspberry oil and regenerating rosehip oil for skin that feels nourished.
Finish the layering routine with a extra caring product where needed. Our waterless, conditioning and protective multi-purpose All-Around Balm is made from repairing argan oil and softening oat oil, with bisabolol to soothe and heal.
The best is to try out what and how much you need each day. Skin is like hair - some days are good, some days are bad. Take care of your winter skin days!
