With the holiday season upon us, most areas of the country will begin to experience colder weather and drier air. As snow begins to fall, many of us will be exposed to harsh weather either by participating in snow sports or just going about our daily lives in the snowier areas of the country. Heaters are being turned on everywhere we go; in our homes, our offices and our cars. What does this all mean? All of these factors (in some cases compounded by holiday celebrations which mean an increase in cocktails and a decrease in sleep) can equal dry winter skin.
During this time of year, it is often beneficial to adjust your skin care routine to accommodate the change in environment. Even for the length of a ski retreat or tropical resort vacation, a skin care regimen can be changed temporarily to compensate for the expected changes in skin’s needs and behavior. When preparing for, or combatting, a drier winter environment, consider HydroPeptide Rich & Powerful Duo which includes two potent anti-aging products, perfectly positioned to care for winter skin.
HydroPeptide Power Serum is formulated at an optimal viscosity than other products on the market so the beneficial ingredients can penetrate more effectively. HydroPeptide Power Serum contains hyaluronic acid for potent hydration, powerful peptides to help relax the muscle contractions that cause lines and wrinkles as well as peptides that help to promote healthy collagen production to maintain skin’s youthful suppleness and bounce-back.
HydroPeptide Power Lift is a rich, anti-aging moisturizer that contains four different classes of hydration to draw moisture into the skin, immediately hydrate, keep hydration from evaporating out and create a barrier to lock in hydration and soften skin. Additionally, similar to HydroPeptide Power Serum, HydroPeptide Power Lift contains anti-aging peptides in addition to its ability to soothe dry skin.
Just remember, the difference between dry and dehydrated skin can be confusing but dehydrated skin lacks water (found below the surface of our skin and closely related to the health of our collagen and the overall functionality of our skin), while dry skin lacks oil (or the natural barrier on the surface of the skin that protects and locks in hydration). This is an important distinction because it is important to use products that address both. The combination of HydroPeptide Power Serum and HydroPeptide Power Lift does just that. By helping to hydrate skin with HydroPeptide Power Serum and lock it in with the protective barrier in HydroPeptide Power Lift, the improvement in skin can be meaningful and long-lasting.
As we age, our skin can become drier and more dehydrated in general so winter weather can have an even bigger impact. It’s important to be aware of these changes in order to keep skin healthy all year long. Not only do I personally use HydroPeptide Power Lift twice per day, I love it as an Esthetician because the silky, non-greasy feel means that my dry skin clients who would normally shy away from a rich cream end up loving it and can finally get their dry skin back to balance.
Because of the light feel and easy absorption, HydroPeptide Power Serum can be used year-round for any skin type. HydroPeptide Power Lift is best used year-round on dry skin (like me) or seasonally for those who feel drier during the winter.
