This winter has so far been quite bitter especially if you live in the Northern United States. However most of us have obligations requiring venturing out and facing the blistery cold outdoors. Regardless of our age or gender, we all need to pay extra special attention to how we take care of our skin, especially during the cold, sometimes harsh winter months. Frigid, arid, outdoor air coupled with heat from forced-air indoors, can be an extremely challenging combination for our skin. These extremes cause the skin to lose its ability to retain moisture and as a result, it becomes dry, cracked and itchy. It is a condition that does not discriminate.
According to our experts, bacteria love to colonize in minute crevices in the skin. This may lead to skin infections which, if not treated rapidly can spread internally. This is why preventing dry winter skin is extremely important. For example, a hydrating toner or serum rich in hyaluronic acid—such as RG-CELL Natural Cell Renewing Toner and RG-CELL Concentrated Restorative Serum can boost your moisture levels without adding the unnecessary bulk of non-essential ingredients which leads to dull, irritated skin.
Follow our steps for glowing, heathy hydrated skin despite the harsh conditions outside.
Cleanse your face daily. Opt for lukewarm water when you wash your face. Use a gentle facial cleansers and avoid harsh scrubs. Go for RG-CELL ALL Natural Rejuvenating Cleanser which packs a mighty punch because it also contains cell rejuvenating and corrective ingredients like EGF, AFA Algae and Aloe as well as the water retention properties of Hyaluronic Acid.
Moisturize daily! Especially during the colder months of the year. Moisturize immediately after using your cleanser, toner and a good hydrating serum. Pay special attention to the cheek area and to the gentle under eye areas which may be most exposed to the icy winter air. RG-CELL Ceramide infused moisturizer is oil free and also contains hyaluronic acid, olive oil and safflower oil which acts as a protective barrier to prevent water from leaving the skin.
Protect your skin from the inside out. A poor intake of vitamins can be a major source of skin disease. Therefore, not only is diet important, so too is topically applied vitamins and minerals that can be applied to the outer layers of the skin and are able to penetrate to the dermal layers where they can really go to work. A deficiency in vitamin C for instance, results in fragile skin. RG-CELL Concentrated Restorative serum has been scientifically proven to improve the skin’s condition even greater than that of vitamin C.
Be very careful with what you use on your skin, especially if it may be vulnerable because of pre-existing skin conditions e.g: individuals with eczema or psoriasis are at greater risk for skin irritations and discomfort during the winter. People who take several medications, and older individuals, are also more susceptible to winter skin. For these individuals, the ingredients in your products DO matter! RG-CELL uses an array of high performing active ingredients including EGF, Ceramides, retinol and powerful natural antioxidants to combat the onslaught of all that winter can wreck on your skin. These ingredients are formulated in a base that comes from natural sources and contains no drying alcohols, artificial fragrance or parabens. This is good news especially for those with sensitive skin conditions.
