Frigid weather, lack of humidity, dry indoor heating, and rapid temperature changes can leave skin feeling parched, tight and uncomfortable. These conditions are a recipe for impaired skin barrier function and result in:
Now is the time to focus on lipid/oil rich, barrier strengthening and occlusive ingredients to seal in moisture. The Clarity Oil is rich in fatty acids from hemp, cucumber, and milk thistle seed oils that support healthy skin function; has serious water binding action from polyglycerides and meadowfoam estolides (which are also structurally similar to ceramides); and barrier replenishing phytosterols from cucumber seed oil.
The trick is to apply on damp skin to seal in moisture. It can be from toners, essences, water based serums or just plain water.
Other tips to help with dry winter skin:
-Wear SPF daily.
-Place a humidifier near your bed while you sleep.
-Slather rich creams or oils while your skin is still wet after showering or cleansing to seal in moisture.
-Supplemental ceramides support skin moisture, smoothness and elasticity from within.
