At jane iredale, we understand that winter is the season that keeps us in our cosy beds each morning, under layers of warm clothes each day, and of course, glued to the heater at all times!
As the cooler weather creeps in and we rug up, leaving less skin exposed, it’s easy to forget our usual skincare regime. However, with our skin enduring the extremities of cold temperatures, high winds, and the contrasting dry air from heaters, it’s so important that we master our winter skincare early and get into a moisture-balancing routine before the worst is upon us!
During winter, our skin can become dull and dry, so to help keep you on the path of well-hydrated skin, we’re sharing some of our favourite winter skin care tips and listing the jane iredale products to help you perfect them for a holistic beauty approach.
Beat Skin Dehydration
We’re all pretty good when moisturising during summer (we usually have a glowing tan as an incentive), and staying hydrated is easy as the warm weather makes us thirsty, but what about hydration in winter? With less skin on show, many of us forget about nourishing our skin in winter, and our water consumption can also diminish. It’s essential to nourish your skin from the inside and out and keeping up our water intake is vital to achieving a glowing, hydrated complexion.
Our HydroPure Tinted Serum is a gorgeously hydrating serum with pigment. It works to provide hydration, diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimises the appearance of pores, and evens out skin tone with sheer coverage. Your skin will love this formula, especially in winter but don’t forget to add your SPF!
For an easy boost of moisture throughout the day, make sure you keep one of our Hydration Sprays handy. Our D2O Hydration Spray is the perfect multi-purpose spray, which can be used on its own throughout the day or before makeup to deliver immediate moisture. After applying makeup, it can also be used to set minerals for a long-lasting, flawless finish. If you are a lavender lover, try our Calming Lavender Hydration Spray, it’s infused with chamomile and organic lavender to help soothe skin and calm the mind.
As part of a holistic skin care and beauty approach, we also believe in beauty from within and ensure we feed our bodies (and skin) with nourishing ingredients. We love Skin Omegas+ from Advanced Nutrition Programme for combatting dry, winter skin. This skincare supplement provides daily skin health benefits and includes Omega 3, combined with Omega 6 fatty acids and vitamin A for skin hydration and an overall skin glow!
Avoid Blotchy Skin
The cold weather and winds in the cooler months can result in blotchy skin, usually a result of dryness or irritation. To help treat the problem and even out your skin tone simultaneously, try using one of our foundations, Glow Time Pro BB Cream, or our Dream Tint Tinted Moisturiser. Both work to help soothe irritated skin and provide coverage to help camouflage any imperfections.
For an extra hydration boost, apply one of our Smooth Affair Primers before makeup application. Our primers are bursting with nourishing, skin-loving ingredients and will help to prepare your skin for makeup application and help with the longevity of your makeup throughout the day - think of it like a paint primer for a house (but with skin-loving ingredients)!
Don’t forget your SPF.
It’s easy to forget about them, but they’re always there! We’re talking about harmful UV rays, and you must protect your skin against them – even in Winter! Start your beauty regime with our Glow Time Pro BB Cream. This beauty balm will protect your skin with its SPF properties and be water resistant for up to 40 minutes, making it particularly handy when the rain pours!
If you prefer a powder, opt for our PurePressed Base Mineral Foundation or Amazing Base Loose Mineral Foundation. Both offer a lightweight, flawless finish with the same signature jane iredale skin-loving ingredients such as Pomegranate Extract for antioxidant protection. Which one you choose will depend on the finish you are searching for. PurePressed Base offers a semi-matte finish, and Amazing Base provides a luminous finish.
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of luxurious moisturiser hitting dry hands. Trapped under gloves or hard at work, our hands are often part of our bodies we forget to care for, but with HandDrink Hand Cream, you can certainly change that. The non-greasy formula has White and Green Tea Extract for nourishment and antioxidant protection. Instantly revive and pamper your hands, providing a much-needed moisture boost throughout winter and beyond!
Fight Chapped Lips
Dry hands can feel like brittle paper, but one thing is worse… chapped lips! Windy, winter days can leave lips feeling dry and sore, and our tendency to drink less water contributes to dry lips. Try a nourishing lip treatment like our HydroPure Hyaluronic Acid Lip Treatment to keep your lips feeling soft and supple this winter. It helps to soothe and restore dry, irritated lips with Hyaluronic Acid, botanical butter and oils, Shea Butter and Algae Extract.
We also have our beloved LipDrink Lip Balm. This luscious, petroleum-free lip balm is an all-in-one moisturiser that protects, softens, and soothes chapped lips and is available in sheer and tinted shades!
Staying hydrated is a critical component of achieving glowing, gorgeous skin. It’s important to remember this at all times, regardless of the season!
