When traveling in winter, it's easy to think that cold air is the only culprit in ravaging your skin. But really, all the usual suspects -- pollution, makeup, sweat -- are all still there to wreak havoc on your complexion. A very effective way to combat damage is with Tilth Beauty. I was very glad to be hosted to experience it!
Tilth is a luxury skincare range that nonetheless, uses quality natural, botanical and cosmeceuticals ingredients. The line has been noticed by some of the top high-end beauty and spa magazines. Many consumers think -- because many companies did -- that natural skincare is somehow "less than" and ineffective. In the past, natural lines just didn't clean well enough to get rid of city grime. I traveled to New York City this week and because it was so blustery, I didn't realize how dirty and pore-clogging the air was. I walked around the 9/11 Memorial, next to the construction site for the new Freedom Tower. 3,000 people work at the site every day, so of course there was an effect on my skin. Tilth Beauty to the rescue!
Rose Protection Cleansing Gel isn't their strongest cleanser, but I think it works very well. Really, all but the oiliest, clogged pores will be best served by it. It's not scented, per se, but it's got a beautiful natural scent. It's a light gel with good slip. This is what they say about it:
For millennia the Rose been known as the queen of flowers and regarded as the bloom that conveys love. What better way to love your skin and see results! This rich, gentle cleansing lotion works integrally with peppermint and hyssop to clean and cool skin, while neutralizing the assault of free radicals and UVA/ UVB damage.
Nobody needs an astringent -- those harsh alcohol rinses from the past. But toners, made from gentler ingredients, are great for everyone. Their Berry Extract Toner is refreshing, full of good-for-your-skin ingredients, and is a great step to your skincare routine. It has a light, sweet/fresh berry scent. Keep it in the fridge for a luxurious, cooling effect! Use it after cleansing, before moisturizing. It's also good for a quick treat: use pure cotton pads to clean your face, neck and decollete. Very few products are good for all that! This is what they say about it:
Berry Toner Extract with anti-oxidant fruit extracts of blueberry, cranberry, and goji berry help deliver a daily harvest of phytonutrients, along with vitamins C and E to your skin at the cellular level.
Even if you normally feel like your skin is too oily for a rich cream, you might change your mind walking around or skiing in cold climates for hours. The outer layer of your skin can get tough and hardened in winter conditions; rich moisturizer helps soothe and soften it. Year-round, most people can benefit from a rich moisturizer like Intense Restoration Moisture Cream on the delicate area of the throat. This is what they say about it:
Forget the synthetic grease combos common in most commercial moisturizers! Forget the toxins. Pure botanical extracts and oils give your skin the essence of what is beautiful.
