HOW TO PROTECT YOUR SKIN AGAINST THE ELEMENTS
Switching between cold, dry air and heated homes can have all kinds of effects on your skin. Dullness, irritation and redness are just some of the changes that you might notice. But, what can you do to keep your complexion comfortable? Here’s a few ideas from us that might help.
MAXIMISE YOUR MOISTURISER
Keeping your skin hydrated and creating a barrier to protect it against the open air are the main things you can do to prevent more moisture being lost. Our faves from the Aurelia Probiotic Skincare range are the gentle yet effective Miracle Cleanser and Refine & Polish Miracle Balm which purify and exfoliate without stripping the skin. We follow these with the beautifully rich Cell Revitalise Day Moisturiser. Don’t forget your under eye area needs more love than ever during winter. Our Brightening Eye Serum is just the thing to help them stay nourished and tackle the appearance of dark circles.
The night is an important time for skin regeneration, so apply our Overnight Recovery Mask at the end of a long day and allow it to sink in as you sleep to wake up looking and feeling more replenished. Top tip: Layer it over our Cell Repair Night Oil if your skin feels especially dry.
TURN YOUR THERMOSTAT DOWN
OK, we know this one is probably a total no-go for the more cold-blooded among us out there. But, if you can bear it, turning your heating down a tiny bit might help. Indoor heating can make the air even drier, which is the last thing your skin needs after it’s been out in the cold – just something to keep in mind the next time you reach for it.
SWITCH ON A HUMIDIFIER
Replace the lost moisture in the air with one of these handy devices. They’re great for helping with dry skin and chapped lips, as well as boosting your breathing. Just make sure to clean it regularly to avoid any bacteria or mold growth.
ADD SOME PROBIOTICS
If your skin is looking and feeling inflamed or dull, try adding a few drops of The Probiotic Concentrate™ into your regime. Infused with our unique blend of probiotics and hyaluronic acid, the formula soothes and improves its appearance.
HELP YOUR HANDS
While we can wrap our bodies up to help keep them cosy, our hands are often exposed so they’re one of the first areas to become dry and cracked. Reach for our Aromatic Repair & Brighten Hand Cream to keep them feeling soft and protected. Oh, and did we mention it smells incredible?
