It’s the most wonderful time of the year, well, maybe not for your skin. As winter draws closer and the cold temperatures are in full swing, the weather can have our skin feeling a little dry and lifeless. During this time, it is incredibly important to give your skin extra love and care to maintain a glowing, hydrated, and clear complexion. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!
Tip #1: Use a gentle, moisturizing cleanser.
Finding a cleanser that is both gentle, moisturizing, and, well, cleansing is essential for your skin to remain hydrated and avoid drying out. When picking a cleanser, look for something that is fragrance-free, as it won’t contain those drying additives, and something that is moisturizing, as it can add hydration to your skin while still cleansing dirt, oil and makeup from your pores. We highly recommend our Gel Cream Cleanser, as it is a perfect daily cleanser for softening, conditioning, and balancing the skin. Plus, it is perfect for all skin types!
Tip #2: Apply a hydrating mask.
Adding extra hydration to the skin is always an excellent choice, especially during the cold, dry winters. Applying a hydration mask is excellent when you want to smooth skin texture and add lots of moisture to the skin. Look for a mask that contains Hyaluronic Acid, as it is super effective for boosting the skin’s hydration. The Rose Mask by NCS is perfect for soothing dull skin and boosting your skin’s hydration. With ingredients like Rose Water and Hyaluronic Acid, they help hydrate and soothe the skin. The Apple Fruit Extract gently exfoliates, making skin feel softer, smoother, nourished and moisturized. On top of all those amazing ingredients, the added Shea Extract helps moisturize and calm skin and Algae Extract helps soften and firm skin, reducing signs of aging. You can’t go wrong!
Tip #3: Find an Ultra Hydrating Cream.
An obvious, but often overlooked, step for maintaining luscious skin in the wintertime is finding a cream that is hydrating, like to the max, but also that will not clog your pores, make you breakout, or lead to oily skin. Looking for quality ingredients like Shea Butter and Glycerin are excellent at providing hydration and elasticity to the skin. One of our highly recommended creams for maintaining hydration in the winter is our Antioxidant Night Cream. This hydrating night cream is enriched with powerful antioxidants to help boost skin texture. With Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil, these powerful ingredients provide superior emollience for intense hydration. This winter night cream is a winter essential for smooth winter skin.
Tip #4: Invest in a Quality Serum for Hydration and Plumping.
In the winter months, your skin can become dull and dry. Finding a serum that includes plumping and hydrating ingredients like Sodium Hyaluronate, collagen, and Vitamin C is absolutely key for perfectly lush skin in the winter. Our suggested product is our NCS Face Serum. With so many nutrient rich ingredients like Vitamin C and Collagen, it will give you smooth, radiant skin.
Tip #5: End your day with an Eye Cream.
With the cold winter months, it can increase your likeliness of puffy eyes and dark circles. Therefore, investing in an eye cream that is refreshing and includes replenishing ingredients is crucial to fight the cold. We suggest our NCS Eye Cream. This peptide-enriched cream helps brighten the eye area and repair and replenish damaged skin and instantly transforms tired eyes to hydrate, firm, and tone the under eyes while also, de-puffing and smoothing the eye area all while providing potent antioxidant protection against environmental aggressors. It is a must try for all seasons, but especially winter.
