This just in via press release from skincare giant emerginC— tips on how to winterize your skin and keep it in check for cold months ahead. Even if you live where the snow doesn’t fall (Los Angeles, Miami, Maui etc.) winter days can have their way with your complexion that isn’t often kind. Says Kimberly Sampson, National Training Director for emerginC,“You need to stay hydrated and exfoliated.”
Here are her four tips:
Exfoliate : Choose a sugar scrub or use your favorite exfoliator to help detox and purify skin from post – summer sweat, heavy sunscreens and tanning lotions. The pre-dosed peels pads of natural fruit acids and botanical extracts will help improve skin tone and texture.
Antioxidize and amp up vitamin C: Our skin needs vitamin C all year for great skin health. Applied topically, vitamin C helps diminish the appearance of pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, as well as sun damage. Says Kim, “emerginC uses one of the most stabilized forms of vitamin C, Stay-C ® 50, vitamin E, brightening plant extracts and soothing botanical oils, in their vitamin C serums. Skin will look radiant (and younger) with continued usage”.
Moisturize: “Try and choose a moisturizer that contains vitamin D (normally synthesized by our skin during sun exposure), this will help nourish and add moisture to the skin,” advises Kim.
Be kind to your body, too: “Try a body butter, they are a great skin protectant and super moisturizing in cooler weather and fall outdoor sports”, says Kim (and we agree, wouldn’t be without my assorted body butters (partial to Champneys).
