The seasons have changed and so has your skin - time to reassess your skin care routine!
Just as you switch up your wardrobe every few months, it’s important to do the same with your skincare routine.
Have you noticed your skin breaking out or looking dry and dull lately? The change in seasons could be to blame.
Prepare your skin for the cold and dry weather with these tips and skin care recommendations that will keep your skin happy and healthy throughout the fall and winter months!
Don’t Skip Out on Gentle Exfoliators
Exfoliation is a skincare essential for both summer and winter. Dead skin cells can still build up during the winter as cool winds cause our skin to dry out. This can lead to skin looking dull and uneven during the wintertime. Rather than a scrub, try a chemical exfoliator like ZO Exfoliation Accelerator. Consists of glycolic and lactic acid complex that aids in the removal of dead skin cells while providing calming and soothing benefits with aloe, green tea, and chamomile blend. Exfoliation is key to glowing, healthy skin!
Protect your Skin with a Daily Dose of Antioxidants
Did you know that a weak and damaged skin barrier is unable to lock in moisture, leaving skin dehydrated and allowing irritants and bacteria to penetrate the skin? Maintain hydration in your skin by protecting you skin’s barrier against environmental factors, like free radials, that can weaken it.
Get your daily dose of antioxidants by replenishing your diet with fruits and vegetables high in antioxidants. Additionally, incorporate a daily antioxidant serum into your morning routine. ZO’s Daily Power Defense contains enzymatic and antioxidant properties (vitamin E and A) that help protect the skin from free radical damage and improve the skin’s natural repair process. Antioxidants are also known for their powerful anti-aging benefits.
Plump up your Skin with Daily Hydration
Cooling temperatures and fall winds can compromise already sensitized, dry skin. Add a functional hydrator to your daily routine that can reduce the severity of skin reactions such as dryness, redness and itching, while accelerating hydration from within. Skinbetter Trio Rebalancing Moisture Treatment is a high-performance, triple-action formula that helps to hydrate a compromised barrier and bring moisture back to the skin. Visible improvement is seen in the look of fine lines, wrinkles and skin dryness. An anti-aging product that delivers heavy hydration without the weight!
Don't Forget Sunscreen
With beach days behind us and cloudier days ahead, that does not mean you should skip out on sunscreen. Harmful UV rays aren’t just out when the sun is shining - they’re out year round. Constant UV exposure without any type of sun protection can result in early signs of aging, sunburn or even skin cancer. Make sure to apply a sunscreen with SPF 30 or more no matter what time of year. Our favourites at Distinct are EltaMD UV Clear and UV Daily. UV Clear SPF 46 is formulated for skin types prone to acne, rosacea and hyperpigmentation. UV Daily SPF 40 is a moisturizing sunscreen for normal or combination skin types. Both available in tinted and untinted.
When in doubt, always wear sunscreen!
