Winter is Coming – Prepare Your Skin

Winter is already showing itself in many parts of Australia so now is the time to prepare your skin. Here are a few tips to avoid that awful dry, stingy
feeling that cold weather brings:

HYDRATE INTERNALLY:

Drink plenty of water to keep hydrated. Often we don’t remember water in winter as thirst is not as strong in
cold weather as on those hot summer days but your body still needs water, if not as much. If you are a coffee or alcohol drinker, your need for
increasing water intake is higher at any time of year. Both beverages dehydrate the body so for every glass or cup of coffee or alcohol add 1 glass
of water.

SET UP A BARRIER:

Your face will need some extra TLC (tender loving care) for the next few months so prepare your bathroom cupboard. Extra oil on your skin will be very
important. The answer there is easy – ACE Vitamin C Serum. This light but super nourishing serum will literally feed your complexion. While we recommend evening use in warmer weather, morning and evening will be more effective in winter.

Your skin needs a barrier to protect it not only from the elements but from heating/air conditioning which is so drying on the complexion. Going from
a warm office, home or car then outside is giving you face a shock every time hence the need for a barrier. Your body is protected with clothing
but not your face and hands – aah don’t forget your hands. ACE LOVES hands. Youthful hands show off rings so well. Lips soften applying ACE twice
a day too.

While Sacha was in Japan in February skiing, her friends all ended up with their faces so dry they were cracking. ACE serum and Nourishing Cream were
saviours for Sacha who did not have any problem with her face. Of course Sacha’s supplies dwindled substantially! Anti Wrinkle Cream is a great
team mate of ACE Serum which contains Vitamins A, C and E as well as hyaluronic acid. I love to use Nourishing Cream on my arms and the value is excellent, especially the large 250ml size.

EXFOLIATE:

Exfoliation is a must during winter. As the skin tends to dry, more dead skin cells will form and need to be removed. Think
about your legs and that lovely flaky look you often discover toward the end of winter – and legs are usually covered. This is happening to your
delicate face and neck so once or twice a week depending on your skin type exfoliate with Microderm Resurfacing cream. Your face will then drink
in those beautiful oils and active ingredients you apply afterwards.

MOISTURISE LEGS AND ARMS:

Much winter clothing has a component of polyester which tends to dry the skin so you may find your legs
and arms are looking dry and scaly. We tend not to think about exfoliating these parts of the body but you will see the benefit for the short time
it takes in the shower. Remember to apply a quality natural body lotion to keep skin soft and supple after. Unfortunately MiSMo does not have a
body lotion as such, but I apply Magnesium Gel and get a double bonus.

Take Charge Of Ageing!

I am not sure there are too many people out there who enjoy ageing? Yes it is part of life and yes we would all like to age gracefully, but what if some of us want to have a little more control over just how quickly we age? Do you really like those crow’s feet around your eyes? Well there are a couple of very quick and easy steps you can put into place to help do this.

Stick To A Daily Skincare Routine

This doesn’t have to take up too much time at all. Simply cleanse, followed by a high quality treatment serum that includes ingredients like Vitamin C and/or Hyaluronic Acid and moisturise of a morning and the same of an evening.

Include an exfoliation and a mask once a week if you can and that is a fantastic way to fortify your skin health.

What Can You Expect From these Steps

By using quality serums and cosmeceutical grade skincare from your early 30’s you can stall or prevent the development of fine lines and wrinkles. For older ladies these lines and wrinkles can be softened and sometimes eliminated.

Always Take Your Makeup Off Before Bed

“Sleeping in your makeup can result in unnecessary exposure to the free radicals in the environment, which the makeup holds on to,” explains one Doctor. “Free radicals cause the breakdown of healthy collagen, which results in fine lines on the skin”.

A great one to remember, a microfibre cloth is an easy way to remove your makeup, if you’re looking for a quick option.

Keep Hydrated

This is a really terrific quote – “Healthy hydrated cells are the key to ageless skin and a healthy body.” Being aware of how much water you consume can reduce skin issues like dehydration (which can lead to more wrinkles and fine lines developing). Further to this, using products that also offer hydration to your skin will ensure ageless skin.

If you’re not already following any of these steps and you’re keen to slow down the hands of time then perhaps today is the time to start? Every mature person loves to hear “Gee you look great for your age”. Join the Mismo ladies who hear this regularly.
