As I approach an extraordinary milestone (I’m turning 50!!!) you will see my content shift a little bit here on the blog. Don’t worry, I’ll still give you fitness, nutrition, and wellness tips in addition to healthy ways you can make strides towards reaching your goals in these areas. But I want to delve a little deeper into content that speaks specifically to those of you who are 40+. Look for more content like:
- mental and emotional well-being
- hormone health
- skin and beauty care (especially for maturing skin)
- fashion and style (check out my LTK page HERE!)
Which brings me to today’s post. It’s geared towards skin care, especially as the winter months approach. It’s crucial to adjust our skin care routines to combat the harsh effects of colder and drier weather. The cold air can strip away our skin’s natural moisture, leaving it dry, flaky, and prone to irritation. But fear not! With the right skincare products, you’ll have several healthy ways to keep your skin healthy, hydrated, and glowing throughout the winter season. I’ve curated a list of five clean beauty products that contain vital ingredients like Vitamin E and humectants, which play a significant role in nourishing and hydrating your skin during the winter months.
1. Gentle Cleansing with a Cleansing Oil
Kickstart your winter skincare routine with a gentle yet effective cleanser infused with Vitamin E. The Countertime Lipid Cleansing Oil is enriched with natural oils and botanical extracts, including Vitamin E, known for its antioxidant properties. Vitamin E helps protect the skin from free radicals and aids in maintaining its moisture balance, leaving your skin clean, nourished, and prepared for the next steps in your skin care routine.
Exfoliation is key to achieving a radiant complexion, especially in winter when dry skin can accumulate more. The Reflect Effect Bamboobuff Exfoliating Polish is an exceptional product that gently exfoliates using natural ingredients. Plus, it’s super simple to use–just add a little to your favorite cleanser! With just two ingredients, this amazing exfoliator leaves your skin refreshed, renewed, and ready to better absorb the subsequent products in your winter skin care regimen.
3. Deep Hydration with a Serum
Combat the dryness that winter brings by adding a hyaluronic acid serum like this Countermatch Intense Moisture Serum to your daily routine. Hyaluronic acid is a powerful humectant that attracts and retains water, providing intense hydration to your skin. Paired with the moisturizing benefits of Vitamin C and E, this serum keeps your skin plump, smooth, and hydrated, creating a protective barrier against the harsh winter elements.
4. Nourishing & Moisturizing Face Cream
In winter, your skin craves nourishing moisture to maintain health and vitality. The Countertime Antioxidant Soft Cream is a luxurious product rich in humectants and emollients, making it an excellent choice. Shea butter plus coconut-derived emollients nourish and repair your skin, while humectants lock in moisture, ensuring your skin stays supple and hydrated even on the coldest days.
5. Nighttime Repair with a Recovery Cream
Did you know that your skin loses a ton of moisture while you sleep? It’s true! Before you snuggle into bed, treat your skin to some nighttime repair with the Countermatch Recovery Sleeping Cream. This cream, packed with two forms of hyaluronic acid, works tirelessly as you sleep to replenish and rejuvenate your skin. Wake up to a complexion that feels refreshed, renewed, and ready to face the day ahead with confidence.
There you have it friends–5 helpful and healthy ways to prep your skin for winter. By incorporating these clean beauty products enriched with Vitamin E and humectants into your winter skin care routine, you’re not only providing the nourishment and hydration your skin needs but also preparing it to withstand the challenges of winter.
