Although 2020 has been an unprecedented year‚—and a year where the word “unprecedented” has been grossly overused—the changing of seasons is something that stays the same. And with Halloween descending upon us and Thanksgiving just around the corner, one thing is clear: Fall is here and winter is coming.
Of course that means mittens, hats, parkas and boots will be dusted off for another season, but it also means that your skin will require a little more TLC. That’s because colder temperatures and dry air can wreak havoc on your skin’s all-important moisture barrier, plus exacerbate common skin concerns like redness, inflammation, acne and discoloration. Add in the stress of a very eventful (we won’t use “unprecedented” again) last year, and your poor complexion is crying out for some love.
Here are three fast tips to give skin the respect it deserves when the temperature drops:
LAY IT ON THICK
This time of year is the perfect time to invest in our newest, ultra-lush moisturizer: eXO Face Bio.digital Moisturizing Cream. It’s everything you love about our best-selling Bio.digital Perfection Moisturizer, but it contains even more Zen3 exosomes, our key ingredient to help accelerate cell turnover, lock in hydration and blur the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Applying this rich, featherlight cream is like wrapping your face in the most sumptuous piece of cashmere—and who doesn’t want a warm blanket when it’s chilly out?
HYDRATE ON THE REG
Although you’re often encouraged to drink water in the warmer months—and for obvious reasons—it is equally important to stay super-hydrated when the cold sets in. This is because you’re often spending lots of time indoors, in spaces that are very dry and lack the necessary humidity to keep skin hydrated and balanced. Water intake will assist in giving skin that appearance of dewiness and plumpness, plus it helps aid processes like digestion, which can result in an overall glowy complexion.
DON’T FORGET YOUR BODY!
You may not be trotting around in a bikini right now (and if you are, we’re jealous) but that’s no excuse to not care for your body. Chilly weather can be particularly harsh on hands, resulting in dry, cracked skin that’s sensitive to the touch. We love slathering on eXO Body onto our digits before jamming them into mittens, and applying a healthy layer on our legs, arms and heels before bedtime. Because life may not be a beach right now… but our body is ready for one!
