Winter Skin Rescue: Foundation for Dry Skin
It’s the coldest time of the year, and a lot of us are dealing with common winter skin problems like redness, dryness, dehydration, and itching. It’s not surprising, with heaters and radiators drying things out and the extra caffeine consumption to make us feel warm. This is why our skin tends to be at its worst when it’s February. In addition, the winter skin makes us appear older because our skin gets more textured, and our complexion is drab.
Our first thought is to put on makeup to smooth the appearance of our skin, but some may be hesitant to apply a foundation due to fear of causing more irritation. It’s not a bad thing for them to be thinking this is the case. There are plenty of foundations available which don’t work well in the cold winter weather. So, you’ll be glad to know that here at Jane Iredale, we carry fantastic winter skin foundations which you’ll love.
What Foundation Is Best for Dry Skin?
On the top of the list is the HydroPure Tinted Serum, which contains Hyaluronic acid and CoQ10. If there ever was a foundation designed to heal dry winter skin and blemishes, this is it. We don’t need to explain the two primary ingredients since they’re listed in the name. Let’s look at what they accomplish.
Hyaluronic Acid is a substance that has a remarkable ability to help skin retain water. In actuality, it allows the epidermis to hold around 1,000 times the weight of water. This is great news for our dehydrated acquaintances.
The second ingredient, CoQ10, targets the damage caused by free radicals. CoQ10 is an effective instrument to support collagen and elastin and, therefore, if you’re struggling with a sagging appearance, It can certainly aid.
Additionally, Allantoin can help to reduce redness and irritation.
HydroPure can be used as a primer underneath one of our other powders or on top of any of the Smooth Affair Primers to give you more radiance and smoothness. You’ll appreciate how it melts into your skin and gives a gorgeous, dewy look that lasts all day. Find out more information about how to apply HydroPure Tinted Serum.
Be aware it’s not sun protective available in HydroPure; therefore, we usually mix HydroPure along with another SPF sunscreen to get the best results.
The solution we’re presenting for winter skin might be a surprise to you since it’s an ingredient in powder. It’s common knowledge that all powders dry the skin, but there’s a difference with this!
PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation is a foundation in powder form that acts as a liquid, is free of drying agents, and has a skin-soothing formulation that is packed with antioxidants and minerals. The best way to use it is to apply it to The Skincare Makeup System, which includes Smooth Affair Brightening Primer for Face, PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation, and POMMISST Hydration Spray.
Smooth Affair Brightening Facial Primer gives you an extra layer of hydration to give your skin a more hydrated look and smooth the texture of your face.
PurePressed Base will soothe and calm your skin while offering SPF broad-spectrum. It is a blend of Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide that relieve and manage even the most dry skin. Learn more about this article on PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation.
The Hydration Spray POMMISST will make your makeup last longer with an extended-lasting finish and will give an additional boost of moisture. Pomegranate is an antioxidant that’s potent, which protects your skin from environmental harm, and works with SPF.
Skin Care Routine for Dry Skin
In addition to making use of the finest skincare products for hydration and the moisturizer-rich makeup routine in winter, some daily habits can help you improve your makeup and skincare routine.
If you are you are applying the morning or evening skincare routine, do not allow your skin to become dry. Apply serums for treatment while your skin remains damp after cleansing, apply moisturizer when your skin is still wet from treatment, and apply primer. In contrast, the skin remains damp after applying the moisturizer. Using your makeup over a layer of moisture can help keep your skin hydrated throughout the day.
Always use a Hydration Spray. After applying makeup, spray with POMMISST, Calming Lavender, or the D20 Hydration Spray to provide additional moisture. Carry your Hydration Spray along with you and use it throughout the day.
Include an Omega in your routine of daily supplements. Omegas assist the skin cells in retaining water more efficiently and reduce the redness of your complexion. The skin Omegas originate from the Advanced Nutrition Programme, including Omega 3 to reduce dryness and texture, with Omega 6 to reduce irritation and redness. We suggest two times every day. You’ll notice the effects within a couple of weeks of beginning them.
Be aware of drinking caffeine and sugar. Both caffeine and sugar are among the most drying and inflammatory substances that you can introduce into your body. Make sure to limit your caffeine intake to one cup a day and substitute sugar-laden snacks with fruit or other healthier alternatives. You’ll be glad you did.
Finding the perfect foundation for winter shouldn’t be an issue, and we pride ourselves on offering healthier alternatives that traditional makeup products provide. Keep in mind that Jane Irdale formulas are not made with the most effective sensitizers found in conventional makeup. This includes mineral oils, parabens, synthetic perfumes, phthalates, as well as chemical sunscreen. What’s left is high-performance skincare makeup that is beautiful and feels great.
