7 WAYS TO PREP YOUR SKIN FOR WINTER

“The temperature is cooling down and winter is around the corner. Just like you change your wardrobe when the weather turns chilly, now is the time to change your skin care routine.”

 

During the winter months the skin is often forgotten about and left unprotected. This can cause significant dryness, itching and redness. While we can’t stop winter from coming, we can counteract the effects that this season has on our skin with a little preventative care. This can go a long way in helping keep our complexion glowing and healthy.

 

Check out our top tips to help you keep your skin soft and supple this winter:

Step 1: Moisturise

It is important to change your light weight moisturiser for thicker products that quench your skin’s thirst and rehydrate  your skin. Moisturisers are a critical component of a skin care routine, as they help keep skin dryness at bay. Add a protective layer to your skin today.

 

 

Step 2: Exfoliate

Regularly exfoliate your face and body to remove dead skin cells  and allow moisture to absorb into the skin quicker and more effectively. Use an exfoliant that is non-abrasive to ensure that it feels comfortable on your skin.

 

Step 3: Use a hydrating mask

To bring back radiance and softness  to your face, use a soothing hydrating mask. Use this twice a week before you go to bed, and let it do its magic for 10 to 20 minutes.

 

Step 4: Apply lip balm

To get rid of the dead skin that’s messing with your lip look, try using a lip balm to add moisture. This will help protect against chapping  and rejuvenate the delicate skin. After using a moisturising lip balm your lips will look and feel smooth. Get yours today!

 

Step 5: Protect your hands from the cold

Some parts of our body are more sensitive to the weather than others. During winter our hands get chapped, cracked and irritated because we are using them for every task, all day. Our hands are so important; however, we often forget that they need the most care. To prevent ageing and dryness of your hands it is important to use a moisturiser every morning and night.

 

Step 6: Have cooler showers

While hot showers are a welcome relief in winter, they tend to dry out skin and hair. It is important to reduce the temperature of your showers and apply a rich moisturiser after.

 

Step 7: Wear Sunscreen

It is important to always protect your skin from the harsh rays of the sun, even during the winter months. Sunscreen should be used for all seasons, so make sure you apply it every day as part of your skin care routine

Sephora New Credit Cards

Spending money in Sephora is easy. I can’t even count the number of times I walked into Sephora and walked out with an iconic black and white bag filled with foundation, palette, moisturizer, eyeliner, beauty blender and the samples I can get my hands on.

Even when I travel around the world, I would find myself walking into a Sephora store or two just to check things out. From layouts to exclusive-items and sampling everything I can.

Sephora just annouced that it would launch a new credit card offering rewards beyond the existing Beauty Insider loyalty program.

The three cards, a Sephora Credit Card, Sephora Visa Credit Card and Sephora Visa Signature Credit Card will be available to select US shoppers in the next few months before being rolled out to all US stores and sephora.com.eing rolled out to all US stores and sephora.com. (sucks to be out of USA and they even have much more products than us)

According to Allure, anyone who opts in for the Sephora Visa Signature Credit Card will also have access to selected Visa cardholder benefits, including discounted travel prices, lounge access at airports, and luxury accommodation deals. Becoming a Sephora card holder (of any kind) will also auto-sign you up to the Sephora Beauty Insider program, if you’re not already a member.

“The Sephora Credit Card was the natural next step in our loyalty journey, truly adding even more value that our clients can use not only within our stores, but also in their day-to-day lives,” said Andrea Zaretsky, Sephora’s senior vice president of CRM and loyalty.

She told WWD that the credit card program is expected to increase loyalty and help “unlock the power” of customer data.
