Winter has come (*wink* *wink*) and our skin is truly feeling it. Can you relate? The cold temperatures in the Berkshires have the tendency to make our skin dry, dull and even flaky. Luckily, our fearless leader, Jane has some recommendations for products that will help hydrate, brighten and nourish your skin. Check out her winter beauty essentials below.
Feed Your Dry Winter Skin
The body is wise and feeds our vital organs nutrients first. Unfortunately for our skin, that is the last place our body feeds so it is important to include nutritional supplements as part of your holistic skin care routine. The Skin Omegas supplement, supplied by Advanced Nutrition Programme, is made from premium, highly purified omega-3 fish oil and omega-6 from evening primrose oil to deeply nourish and hydrate the skin. The fatty acids also help to maintain skin integrity and a healthy lipid layer to lock moisture in. Skin Omegas has the added benefit of vitamin A, a wonderful skin-loving antioxidant.
” I use Skin Omegas as an internal moisturizer,” says Jane. “I find it essential in combating winter’s dryness.”
We recommend pairing two capsules per day with food to help maintain your skin’s hydration and for a smooth, luminous complexion.
Fortify & Hydrate Dry Winter Skin
For an intense boost of hydration and gorgeous, glowing skin try BeautyPrep Hyaluronic Serum. It’s a lightweight, non-greasy serum packed with nourishing marine ingredients, soothing botanicals and powerhouse ingredient hyaluronic acid, which can work wonders to rejuvenate and hydrate the skin. After cleansing and toning your face, apply one or two pumps to your face, neck and décolleté, morning or night.
Brighten Your Skin & Your Day
For a little color and a radiant complexion, Jane turns to three winter makeup essentials.
Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder
Nearly 25 years ago, Jane developed Amazing Base Loose Mineral Powder— our very first product— and it has been essential for people with dull, dry skin ever since. Amazing Base is an airy mineral foundation, and gives the skin a luminous, sheer to medium coverage. It also provides broad spectrum sun protection, which we still need in winter! Layer it on top of our hyaluronic acid foundation Liquid Minerals for extra hydration benefits or for more full coverage.
Mystikol Powdered Eyeliner
“Mystikol boosts my mood with a quick swipe of color and makes me feel pulled together in a snap,” says Jane. It comes in six shades to help give your eyes a pop of color which can brighten your mood. Read this blog post to learn which eyeliner shade will make your eye color stand out.
