Winter Skin Care in Focus
Prepare Your Skin This Season with Professional Recommendations from Our Expert Aestheticians
The following product recommendations are from our amazing staff of Aestheticians here at Osmosis and are potent all-natural and organic skin care products available in our facials and in our boutique.
Alli: “The seasons are changing and this has a huge effect on our skin. Something that helps my skin stay hydrated throughout the seasons is the Chamomile Cleansing Milk from Naturopathica. This is a gentle light cleanser that helps prevent against impurities while keeping your skin smooth and glowing. The chamomile helps calm dry sensitive skin while keeping the skin hydrated. Use every day.
April: For this winter season I would recommend the Carrot Seed Facial Oil from Naturopathica to hydrate and protect the skin. With its rich content of fatty acids it will help restore the skin’s outer layer while reducing redness and inflammation that is damaged by UV exposure.
Azja: Autumn is here and Winter is near. With shorter days and longer nights we usually don’t get as much exposure to intense sunlight. This is a great time to treat our skin with the Botanical Skin Brightener from Naturopathica, a natural complex to lighten and rich in antioxidants helping to fight free radical damage.
Without the harsh additive of hydroquinone, a chemical bleaching agent which can irritate the skin, Botanical Skin Brightener offers 100 % skin loving results using extracts from Licorice Root, Red Wine Polyphenols, Daisy Flower, Lactic and Ascorbic Acids.These potent botanical ingredients can repair and correct uneven complexions, hyperpigmentation, and even acne scars bringing a healthy radiant glow to anyone. This is one of my favorite products for this time of year. Remember to always use a sun protection, look for Naturopathica’s chemical free Mineral Spf in both 17 & 30.
Heather: Winter time can be harsh and leave our skin feeling dry and dehydrated. In order to allow our moisturizing products to penetrate and work to their potential, we first need to eliminate the barrier of dry dead skin debris. I suggest using a gentle exfoliant regularly. I love the Gommage Contact + from Phyt’s. This non abrasive soft scrub is rich and creamy with the feel of a mask and will leave your skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated. Plus the aromas are heavenly with hints of Ylang Ylang and Clove. Use 1-3 times per week.
Lori: Dehydration is common in the winter with indoor heating and low humidity. We need to absorb any moisture we can and a perfect way to maintain this is Masque Hydra’gel from Phyt’s. The key ingredient is hyaluronic acid which is natures humectant. I suggest using this mask once a week and you’ll feel immediately soothed and ultra hydrated.
Nicole: With the cooler months upon us, now is the perfect time to address sun damage in your skin. My two favorite products are the Sweet Cherry Enzyme Peel and Vitamin C15 Wrinkle Repair Serum from Naturopathica.
The Sweet Cherry Enzyme Peel is an exfoliating mask that brightens and smoothes sun damaged skin. It is vitamin rich and helps to refine pores. Recommended use would be 1-2 times a week and to be left on for 3-4 minutes. The perfect pair to this product is Vitamin C15 Wrinkle Repair Serum. This is a potent daily serum packed full of antioxidants to brighten and tighten the skin. With a powerful dose of 15% Vitamin C, this serum is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Rebecca: The Polishing Pear Fig Enzyme Peel from Naturopathica is a great product to keep on hand during the harsh winter months. The jojoba beads and enzymes gently dissolve and sweep away any build up of dead or dry skin cells keeping the skin smooth while the pear puree is loaded with antioxidants to boost skin’s immunity. By using this peel 2-3 times a week skin will remain supple and bright all winter long.
Roberta: Biocera Ion Spray is an amazing product. It is ionized water that hydrates the skin. The spray bottle is refillable with purified water and the tourmaline beads and colloidal silver ionizes the water. It creates an anti-bacterial surface and can be used on the body and on surfaces. You get 300 mists out of one refillable bottle which can last for over a year. Developed by Dr. Jeon in 1994, this amazing product works on improving hydration from the inside out making it key in the journey to youthful skin. It is also ideal for dehydrated winter skin while fighting off those nasty flu bugs this time of year. Come have a treatment, and experience Biocera for yourself.
