The holiday season is officially here, but that’s no reason to neglect your skin. With winter weather fully in swing and the stress of the season upon us, it’s more important than ever to take care of your skin and ensure protection against the elements.
These are our 4 favorite products to help get you to 2022 with the skin you want:
EltaMD UV Daily
Just because it looks a bit grayer and feels a bit colder, doesn’t mean you should skip SPF. Not only can the sun detriment your physical health, but it’s also the number one cause of premature aging and loss of radiance.
Slather on the EltaMD UV Daily sunscreen as part of your daily skincare routine to ensure you’re protected from harmful rays no matter what month. With its moisturizing ingredients to combat dry skin as well as tinted options, this product is multi-functional and perfect for the holiday season. (Bonus? It also makes a pretty great gift for her.)
SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic
This daytime vitamin C serum delivers advanced environmental protection while improving upon the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness — and it even brightens skin’s complexion. With antioxidant protection that prevents new damage from occurring this impressive product manages to do it all. Let your formulas do the hard work this season and reap the benefits of healthy, happy skin.
SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense
While it’s always a good idea to protect against UV rays, it’s also true that without as much daylight, there isn’t as much sun, making the winter the perfect time to work on stubborn hyperpigmentation. With strong acids in the formula, preventing sun overexposure is a must when using a strong product because they release free radicals, and can cause an exaggerated sunburn reaction leading to more damage.
However, a product this effective is important to incorporate. Replete with powerhouse ingredients such as kojic acid, tranexamic acid and vitamin B3, this advanced formula is clinically proven to reduce dark spots and discoloration.
EltaMD Lip Balm
Finally, don’t forget to moisturize and protect your lips. An often forgotten and neglected area of the face, cracked, chapped lips are almost a hallmark of the season as much as cheesy holiday movies on The Hallmark Channel. The EltaMD lip balm contains 5% Hydromanil for immediate and long-term moisturization as well as UV protection. Whether you’re hitting the ski slopes or staying indoors it’s easy to wear, and easy to use, so be sure to include this stocking stuffer on your list this year.
