YOUR EVENING WINTER ROUTINE

YOUR EVENING WINTER ROUTINE

By Nateisha Scott

Discover an evening routine that is hydrating, brightening and protecting during the winter season.

Getting your beauty sleep is not just a passing phrase, it in fact holds merit, especially in the winter. Like your mind and body, your skin regenerates whilst you sleep and so implementing an evening routine is vital for your skin’s nightly repair. In addition to this, the winter season creates havoc with your skin and so products and formulations that are rich and moisture-focused will certainly enhance your skin’s hydration during the colder months. Combining a thorough night routine during the wintertime will provide your skin with the glow and hydration it needs.

Cleanse

Any and every routine should start with a thorough cleanse and cleansing your skin at night removes any build up, dirt and oil from the day. If your skin requires it then cleansing with a softer formula, either gel or cream will help to lock the moisture in whilst still accurately cleaning the skin. The NAC Y2 Restorative Cleansing Balm is a great option for its hydrating balm texture that is gentle enough for the most sensitive of skin but also removes daily impurities effectively and swiftly.

 

Exfoliate

During the winter your skin can face a further onslaught of dryness and irritation and in order to combat that and allow for fresher skin to shine through, regular exfoliation is needed. The Clinical Exfoliator is a gentle gel-to-fluid formulation that resurfaces the skin with an advanced acid and enzyme complex. Infused with tartaric acid, lactic acid and citric acid, the exfoliator cleanses and exfoliates the skin restoring the skin’s PH levels, eliminating impurities.

 

Serum

With a clean and fresh face, your skin is ready to receive the next steps it needs in order to optimise the night-time routine. The strength of a serum is beneficial for the skin especially at night and so layering your serum before your moisturiser will help optimise its effect. The Y Theorem Repair Serum boosts collagen production supports cell regeneration and improves the elasticity in the skin resulting in hydration, volume enhancement and a reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. On another scale the Celestial Black Diamond Serum will not only target fine lines and wrinkles but will also brighten the complexion – a perfect combination during the duller days and will leave the skin plump and hydrated.

 

Mask

Hydrating formulas and products are key during winter to keep the skin hydrated and during your masking step applying a thirst-quenching mask to the skin in a concentrated dose will only benefit the skin. The Bio Cellulose Facial Treatment Mask adheres to the face like second skin and with fibres that are 500x finer than tissue, the bio cellulose instantly locks moisture into the skin effectively brightening, hydrating and stimulating collagen production. For an overnight treatment whilst you rest, the gel texture from Meso Infusion Leave On Overnight Mask works by melting into the skin, leaving a transformative feeling of restoration on the skin, designed to plump, hydrate and volumise the skin, the mask provides the moisture boost your skin craves due to the colder months.

 

Eyes & Lips

An area that faces the harshness of winter just as much as your skin is your eyes and lips and applying products that are rich and moisturising will help keep them hydrated. The Celestial Black Diamond Contour Gel covers two bases, it soothes and hydrates the eye area but also contours and defines any areas of concern. Highly moisturising and formulated with Matrixyl 3000 to increase the levels of collagen that will plump and erase fine lines and wrinkles. For lip care, keeping them nourished and hydrated is important and the Meso Lip Infusion Duo is a two-step product that adds a mask and then a serum for instant conditioning.
