Does winter have your skin feeling a little sad?
Hi, it’s Leah, Twisted Roots Chicago’s Lead Esthetician and the number one complaint I get during the winter months is “my skin is dry, dull, rough”. This can be normal this time of year with the air being drier, and the wind has a little more bite, but there are other factors that may be adding to the problem. The two biggest factors I see are:: Cleansers that are too harsh and stripping the skin, and moisturizers that don’t contain enough “water” or water-binding ingredients.
Once the skin is stripped, and not getting enough hydration, the epidermis will start to break down- causing that rough feeling as well as flaking. When this starts to happen, no amount of water can help- the epidermis needs to be repaired.
How can you tackle this problem? A good home care routine is essential to skin care. Adding in Cucumber Spritz, Hyaluronic Serum and Infuse 7 to your routine will help replenish lost water and help rebuild and keep your epidermis intact.
Both Cucumber Spritz and Hyaluronic Serum contain hyaluronic acid which holds 1000 times its weight in water! Pairing the two together adds layers of hydration for the skin to pull from. Cucumber Spritz also contains aloe and cucumber adding even more hydration. Infuse7 contains a mixture of essential fatty acids which mimic the skins natural oils. Linoleic and oleic acid both help soften and hydrate the skin, while also strengthening and repairing the epidermis and keep all that yummy hyaluronic acid from escaping!
