With the Winter winds wafting in and the heaters blasting indoors, our skin is prone to losing its moisture, making it very easy for our skin to start feeling dry, itchy, and irritated. As a result, the skin barrier becomes weaker; allowing it to be susceptible to damage like low humidity or the dry heat that comes from turning on indoor heating systems.
Luckily, there are various products and steps you can take to combat the harsh effects of dry, winter skin, and keep your skin feeling moist and supple during the Holiday season.
Opting for Gentle Facial Cleansers
Using standard cleansing products can worsen your skin’s condition by over-stripping the skin’s naturally produced oils and disrupting the microbiome.
Opting to use more gentle facial cleansers like the Urban Calm Gel Cleanser with Fermented Pear and LHA is perfect for not only protecting your skin’s microbiome but also cleansing and exfoliating without over-stripping the skin.
Incorporating Skin EssenceIf you haven’t tried out skin essences before, we hope this inspires you to do so! Essences are used right after cleansing and are formulated with higher concentrations of ingredients that help boost the effectiveness of other ingredients in other skincare products.
The Urban Calm Soft Essence gives the skin a powerful burst of hydration. It is formulated with Fermented Seaweed and Cica, plumping the skin by reducing moisture loss and protecting the skin cells from any environmental damage, in this case, protecting it from harsh, dry winter winds.
Serums to Brighten the SkinThe cold weather can oftentimes dull the appearance of your skin. Serums can help not only boost moisturization–leaving the skin feeling plump–but also help brighten the overall appearance of the skin.
Applying the Urban Calm Vita Serum which is formulated with a powerful dose of niacinamide, can help brighten and smooth out the skin. The serum, once applied, leaves your skin feeling nourished, glowing, and hydrated.
Keeping your skin hydratedThe most effective and important way to keep your skin happy and healthy during this season is to, obviously, moisturize. Opting for richer creams can help keep all that moisture locked in, preventing the cold air from zapping away the hydration.
The Urban Calm Barrier Cream helps relieve any sensitive or dehydrated skin, making it perfect for the Winter season. Formulated with Fermented Honeybush, the cream keeps the skin firm and smooth, sealing all potent ingredients from your routine for a protected skin barrier.
Urban Calm has all these products ready for you in both a bundle and a collection gift set! Both contain all the essential products mentioned above. The only difference is that the gift set comes with all products in a minimalist debossed box, making it perfect for the Holiday Season. The set can be wrapped or simply gifted as is.
Experiencing dryness or irritation during the holiday season is very common, but we hope that we helped you gain some insight on any changes you might need to make to achieve that beautiful, hydrated Winter skin!
