Party proof your skin this winter…

Party proof your skin this winter…

As we move into the colder months and crank up the central heating, our skin often dries out leaving us with parched, flaky skin that’s dull and lifeless. For some, we find our skin more sensitive and itchy and our lips can chap and flake. But with party season approaching, how can we combat these winter skin issues and get our skin looking luminous and party ready? We caught up with Victoria Schofield, Education Executive at Dermalogica for some tips on prepping our skin for the party season.

Cleansing is the foundation to healthy skin and as skin becomes drier over the winter be sure to include a cleansing balm that not only thoroughly removes all your make-up, any dirt and pollutants but also nourishes and restores the skins protective barrier. Begin your double cleanse with the new PreCleanse Balm. This luxurious balm-to-oil formula melts through make-up and grime for your cleanest skin yet. Follow with a creamy cleanser such as UltraCalming Cleanser or Essential Cleansing Solution for a professional level of clean whilst conditioning and soothing the skin. Remember to do this when you get home from the party!

Exfoliation helps to revive dull winter skin. Try Daily Superfoliant to resurface and detoxify lacklustre skin. In just a couple of minutes this powder exfoliant gently removes dulling debris and irritating pollution particles leaving skin as smooth as glass! Creating a perfect base for a flawless make-up application.

For brighter eyes, energise your peepers with Stress Positive Eye Lift. This 4 in 1 eye treatment and masque contains Artic Algae to de-puff eye bags and works with your skins own natural microflora to brighten dark circles. Leave on for a few minutes after cleansing for party ready eyes or apply in the morning to mask those tell-tale signs!

Winter skin needs extra hydration and protection, so go up a weight in your moisturiser trying one that’s a little heavier than your summer-time day cream. Slather on Intensive Moisture Balance to nourish parched skin, it’s intensively moisturising, leaving skin super soft and smooth without feeling greasy. A must for winter skin protection and post party recovery!

Finally, smooth over Skin Perfect Primer SPF30 or HydraBlur Primer for a flawless finish that will keep your make-up fresh and in place all day or nightlong! Packed with age-fighting peptides and skin luminising Pearl Powder, Skin Perfect Primer SPF30 gets skin prepped for make-up and shields from skin ageing UV rays. HydraBlur Primer gives you that filter effect, blurring fines lines and large pores whilst offering a time-released hydration to keep make-up looking dewy and fresh.

Achieving that healthy Dermalogica glow is just a few steps away. Enjoy the party!
