Straight from Synergie skin are some take home tips on how to keep your skin restored and rejuvenated through the final weeks of winter…
Don’t be fooled by the cloud cover – UV rays are capable of causing serious skin damage all year round. Even though it may not feel like you are ‘burning’, UV rays can penetrate through clouds and glass, and may have permanently damaging effects on your skin. The best way to put your mind at ease is to always wear “broad spectrum sun protection moisturiser or mineral makeup. Preferable choose a product with a minimum of 20% zinc oxide to give optimal UV protection during the day.”
Extreme winter weather, air conditioning and brisk winds can leave your skin dry, cracked and flaky. “It is really important to use serums and moisturisers with high levels of hydrators such as hyaluronic acid” to ensure your skin stays hydrated all day long.
It is also essential to match your moisturizer to your skin type. “Hydrogel for oily skin and enlarged pores, Reclaim for ageing skin, Dermacalm for sensitive and irritated skin and Hydrolock for very dry skin”
But don’t stop there! It is also essential to keep up your fluid intake to ensure your body is consistently hydrated throughout the winter months. Hydration is not only essential for survival, but also improves skin health and boosts your metabolism . “If you can’t handle glasses of cold water in winter, opt for natural herbal teas or warm lemon and ginger infusions.”
Don’t put away those body scrubs just yet. Although the cooler weather means skin cell production occurs at a slower rate, gentle exfoliation is still necessary to keep your skin looking and feeling fresh through winter. To ensure the best results “remember not to excessively exfoliate or overuse harsh scrubs”, limiting exfoliation to twice a week.
Tend to your Dry Hands and Feet
As we all know, “hands and feet really show the signs of winter dryness”. To avoid that dreaded ‘cracked winter look’ Synergie recommends the use of exfoliators, concentrated moisturisers, and overnight foot masks. To achieve perfectly smooth hands and feet “exfoliate hands and feet with Mediscrub and follow with the generous application of Synergie Occlusiderm. Wear thin cotton socks and cotton gloves to bed and wake up with baby soft hands and feet. You can repeat this treatment for seven days for total rejuvenation”.
