How to reduce skin redness this winter

While we love a healthy glow on rosy cheeks- it is not to be confused with winter’s dry, inflamed and even splotchy redness we get when the temperature dips.

The dry winter air strips the skin of its moisture. During the winter, the skin also experiences a lot of stress from a frequent change of temperature as you get in from the cold outdoors and hide away in the heated indoors. This weakens your skin’s ability to protect itself from irritants and harsh elements like weather and causes that discomforting redness.

Here are 3 simple to follow tips to help you protect your skin this winter.

1. Sleep with a Humidifier

An easy and rewarding first take to take is to invest in a humidifier.

Indoor heating systems strip the air of all its moisture. A humidifier will put that moisture back into the air. Leave the humidifier on all night with a warm mist. This is a perfect first step for helping restore softer, more glowing skin.

2. Retain Moisture

Once you created a more skin-friendly environment in your home, you need to make sure your skin is protected once you are out of the home. The key is to lock-in moisture with a powerful moisturiser which will relieve itching, dryness and redness. 

To make sure every skin type is protected no matter the climate, we designed a smart moisturise for every skin type. If you have sensitive skin, go for the Delicate Cream. Those with oily skin should go for the Light Cream. If you have combination skin, Normal Cream is right for you. If your skin is very dry during the winter months or if you have mature skin, go for the Rich Cream.

Each of our advanced, smart moisturisers instantly sinks into skin, providing it with outstanding hydration and essential nutrients. It creates a protective, soothing cocoon of moisture, relieving skin of cold-induced discomfort, redness and sensitivity.

The very special thing about our smart moisturisers is that they form a ‘hydration patch’ on your skin. And whilst you won’t be able to feel it on your skin, this ‘second skin’ will lock-in the essential moisture and feed your skin with vital nutrients throughout the day.

3. Soothe with a Serum

Cold air irritates the blood vessels, causing them to dilate. This causes inflammation and redness of the skin. 

What could be better than a serum that actively calms inflammation, soothes redness and strengthens the skin?

Because sensitive skin is particularly vulnerable during the winter months, we formulated an ultra clean, fragrance-free serum Boost with sensitive skin in mind.

A Boost is a super concentrated serum that supercharges your skin and works to target a specific skin concern. At the heart of each Boost is Youth Capsule® technology. It delivers key active molecules right to the areas of your skin where they are most needed

Our Redness Relief serum Boost helps even the most sensitive skin protect itself against irritation, pollution and premature ageing. Rich in flavonoids and anti-oxidants, it helps to reduce skin hyper-reactivity and protect against inflammation.

You are probably use to applying the serum first and waiting for it absorb before applying another layer of product. However, we have reinvented this system to simplify your routine, save your time and give you more powerful skincare.

With our system you no longer have to wait for different layers of serum to absorb before you can apply your moisturiser. Do it all in one go.

You can mix any of our serum Boosts into any of our smart moisturiser. Supercharge your cream with a serum Boost that will target a specific skin concern. In this quick, easy and effective way, the two become one and together they create the most powerful blend.

1. Press on the moisturiser lid to pump up the cream.

2. Add a shot of the Boost. If you fancy addressing other skin concerns, you can also add a shot from another Boost. Choose from a range of targeted super serums and get 3 steps of layering done in 1.

3. Mix on top of the moisturiser jar and massage into the skin using gentle circular motion.
