28 May Winter Skin Savers- Night time necessities

My view is that during winter you need to pay a little more attention to your skin care, as we move away from focusing on UV protection and move toward focusing on environmental protection and keeping the skin at an optimum hydration level to prevent fine lines, loss of radiance and flakey or crepey looking skin. This is when hydrating masks and serums play a bigger part in your daily skin care regimen. Using the right products at night is paramount to getting real results from your skin care. While you sleep your skin goes in to regenerative mode so any active ingredients in your skin care products are going to be utilised more than any other time of day.

Overall your skin will look and feel more hydrated, and plumped up.

Feel like your skin is dry and you make-up looks cracked? DermaQuest Skin Rehydration Serum is designed to stimulate the skin to promote firmness and improved elasticity.

100% Natural Jojoba $19.95/ $29.95

100% Natural Jojoba $19.95/ $29.95

100% Natural Jojoba from the Jojoba company is as close to nature as you get when it comes to skin care. It is Jojoba Esther which emulates the sebum your skin naturally creates. As you grow older this sebum production slows down and so by using Jojoba on the skin  it not only counteracts the loss of sebum, but also prevents moisture loss from the skin. Jojoba is also rich in Omega 6 & 9, Antioxidants and Vitamin A, D and E. Sounds like a cutting edge skin care product right? I think its amazing that it comes straight from nature un-interfered with and is rich in these amazing qualities. Because it is an esther it is more lightweight than an oil and great for all skin types.
