10 Tips 1


By Amanda Beisel

Wear moisturizer day and night Moisturizers are a skincare essential during the winter months due to the combination of cold weather and indoor heat. Moisturizers hold water in the skin, provide hydration and form a protective barrier on your skin. This skin barrier separates you from the outside environment, keeping you safe from external factors. When the skin barrier becomes compromised, your skin will start to feel dry and become flaky. Applying moisturizer day and night will help protect your skin all winter long. Recommended moisturizer: HydraHit Nourishing Moisturizer by Skin Addix


Wear makeup that is hydrating and healing

Liquid makeup is the ideal choice in the winter if your skin is prone to dryness. Liquid makeup will look smoother on the skin and provide extra hydration when formulated safely. Powders tend to accentuate fine lines and wrinkles in dry skin where liquid makeup reduces the signs of aging. There is one superior makeup available called Oxygenetix Breathable Foundation that is designed to hydrate and heal the skin. It is a great option for all skin types, including acne and rosacea, due to its anti-inflammatory and healing benefits. Recommended foundation: Oxygenetix Breathable Foundation


Find a serum rich in hyaluronic acid


Drink lots of water throughout the day

Hyaluronic acid is one of the most important ingredients in skincare. It is natural and is present in every tissue of the body and declines as we age. Hyaluronic acid provides hydration to the skin and also delivers nutrients into the cell and takes toxins out of the cell. It has immediate water-binding and water-attracting attributes that fill void spaces between connective collagen and elastin fibers found within the skin. This powerful ingredient is capable of holding 500 times its own weight in water, keeping the skin looking plump, well hydrated, and voluptuous. All skin types will benefit from using this ingredient. Look for it in a serum so you can get maximum penetration. Recommended serum: DailyFix Revival Serum by Skin Addix

Our bodies need water to function and it is no different for our skin. Water flushes toxins out of the vital organs and carries nutrients to the cells. A lack of water leads to dehydration and this is reflected in how your skin looks and your body feels. Mild dehydration can drain your energy and make you look and feel tired. Boosting your water with minerals is a great way to support the body and skin. Minerals are needed to activate the enzymes in our body. Unfortunately, many studies have shown that our food and water do not provide us with the necessary minerals, so supplementing with minerals is important. When the body is supplied with minerals, the necessary enzymatic functions can activate and the end result is healthy body and skin. Recommended water drops: Adya Clarity
