Get your skincare regimen ready for winter!

So many women know a lot about makeup but when it comes to healthy skin, how to get it and how to keep it things can get a little vague!

It goes without saying that, no matter our age, we all want to look healthy and glowing.  Of course, makeup helps to lift the image and it certainly gives us all a little extra dose of confidence but skin health? 

  •  Are you doing what you can?

  • Are you just plain confused about the plethora of products?

  • Are you using too much product?

  • Or worse - not enough?

When it comes to skincare, I’m looking for amazing products that enhance my natural look — with the benefit of healthy skin and a good regime it's entirely possible.

As we approach winter now is as good a time as any to have a review of what product works for you and what products you can toss.

You're more likely to get away with reasonably healthy skin in the summer months but now with the onset of being inside with central heating at home, to being cold on the way to work and then more central heating, it's more important than ever to stay hydrated.

So here's the skincare regimen I use in the colder months:

Out with the cleansing cloths for a more gentle cleanser that boosts moisture as well as cleans.. Youology Makeup remover is a alcohol and oil free,  it’s dual phase formula with a water-based phase and a silicone-based phase to work together—transforming into an effective makeup remover with a simple shake. Leaves your skin feeling soft and nourished with this specially designed, no-rinse formula.

At this time of year I also cut down on using anything too harsh like a scrub on my skin.  But I do recommend a brightening mask once a week, the peel off mask is a great way to relax as well since you should wear it for 15 minutes. 

After cleansing or using a mask use a spritz of rosewater to calm your skin in readiness for serum and moisturizer.

Apply serum to your face, using as many drops as you need to feel that your face is completely covered with the silky-smooth serum formulated to absorb quickly, this highly concentrated serum is packed with skin-nourishing ingredients like vitamin E and olive oil to hydrate your skin. As with all our Youology products - it’s tailor made with boosters just for your skin requirements.

Then apply your daily moisturizer over the serum. I use Youology Day Moisturizer and again you have the option to add boosters for your specific requirements and you can also add a tint.

The night regimen is the same except for using nightly skin-nourishing cream which has nourishing ingredients that hydrate your skin and complete your custom skin care regimen. Help target your individual skin concerns by adding any three boosters of your choice.

And finally the addition of Vitamin D and lots of water will get you through the winter months with a healthy glow! We’re lucky enough to be in Spain so we get our sunshine quota but those more northerly might consider a trip to the health food store for a good and effective vitamin D supplement.
