Beauty Tips for Cold Climes
Sun Protection, Even in the Winter? Yes!
Getting into a good skincare routine is something you’re never too old (or young) to do, and an important part of that is prevention of damage to your skin in the first place (as your granny always said, prevention is better than cure). Taking care of skin in the winter is trickier than you might think: for instance, sunscreen is essential to prevent skin damage if the sun’s out, even if the thermometer is low. White Lucency Protective Day Cream with an SPF of 40 from Shiseido cosmetics is ideal for cold, sunny days, and gives that lovely hydrating boost to tired winter skin. Shiseido cosmetics also offer Factor 15 sun lotion, which can be worn under makeup and your usual moisturiser. Getting into good habits with sun protection is something you’ll never regret- and the benefits aren’t limited to beauty, but are linked to your health, too.
Cloudy Skies, Clear Skin
Those with sensitive skin will testify to the fact that it’s perfectly possible to suffer from dry and greasy skin areas at the same time. To combat this, Estee Lauder offer their Perfectly Clean Creme Cleanser mask, which promises to hydrate while it removes impurities. This product is ideally paired with the Perfectly Clean Foam Cleaner Purifying Mask, also by Estee Lauder. And the best beauty tips for slightly spotty skin? Kanebo Sensai also offer a concealer stick, for the discreet covering of any blemishes, leaving you with a healthy, clean appearance.
Dry Hands Aren’t Sexy
Hands can quickly becomes sore, red, and dry in the winter due to cold winds and the effects of central heating. To combat this, Kanebo Sensai offer a fabulous Cellular Intensive Hand Treatment, which will leave the sensitive skin on your hands youthful and silky soft. For best effect, slather it on at night before putting on a pair of gloves (ideally cotton) and you’ll wake up in the morning with perfectly renewed hands. And of course, wearing gloves when you leave your house will keep your hands softer for longer.
