Things we naturally do in winter can be exactly what we shouldn’t do, but there are easy adjustments and powerful skincare formulas to help our complexions.

Winter skincare

“Outside the chill winds dry out your complexion, inside central heating doubles up on the negatives. To avoid aggravating skin conditions and signs of ageing it is vital to lock in moisture and rebalance your acid mantle with HA.

Dr. Sam Asculai, Visible Youth’s Chief Scientist.

How to take a bath

It’s naturally tempting to soak chilled to the bone bodies in a long hot bath, but if the temperature is too hot or you stay in for too long it can break down lipid barriers, remove natural oils and dehydrate the skin. Regular bathers should aim for no more than 15 minutes in warm, not hot, water. Once out don’t dry off too thoroughly, pat dry your skin then trap the residue water into your skin by applying moisturiser immediately.

Rehydrate your rooms

Central heating dries out the air and can make an aggressive attack on your complexion, so consider a humidifier. Alternatively, bowls of water near radiators can release moisture into the air. House plants naturally release water through their leaves, a process known as transpiration, and they’re beautiful.

Dab don’t rub

Rubbing can pull at your skin and damage your complexion’s fragile structure. Dabbing is not only a relaxing massage technique it increases circulation which can reduce puffiness. Dabbing can also help your skin absorb moisturisers, however the Skin Tech Lab behind Visible Youth™ has made a revolutionary scientific breakthrough transcending absorption. Actives are captured in the optimum weight molecule of hyaluronic acid, measured in kilodaltons, each molecule can penetrate the dermis and reach precisely where it is needed, not too shallow, not too deep.

Acid mantle winter protection

This fragile microbiome is our first protection against dehydration caused by trans epidermal water loss. First advice is to be gentle with your cleansing. Secondly unlike other HA formulas, Visible Youth™ only use pure medical grade hyaluronic acid formulations which are close to the natural pH of your skin, so it is a scientifically proven aid to rebalance and protect the acid mantle.

Good drinks

It might be tempting to sip a warming whisky in wintery evenings but all alcohol is bad for your skin. As a vasodilator, alcohol causes blood vessels to dilate which gives you a false sensation of warmth, at the same time it also dehydrates your skin. Nothing is better than plenty of pure fresh water. An alternative winter warmer is honey, lemon juice and ginger with some hot water. Lemon eliminates toxins and reduces skin inflammation meanwhile ginger strengthens your immunity.

Winter skincare formulas

Visible Youth™ is powered by Hyoglass™ and delivers winter’s vital rehydrating HA. Each molecule of the pure medical grade HA that Visible Youth uses, carries an amazing 1000 times its own weight of water. Captured within this molecule is a unique skin regenerating biomaterial and also natural actives that tackle specific winter skin threats. For example Visible Youth Multi-Action Eye Serum contains Lupin Seed Extract that stimulates lymph drainage to reduce darkness under your eyes. Visible Youth™ Multi-Peptide Super Serum contains the natural emollient oat lipids. Visible Youth™ Moisture Shield contains Dandelion and White Willow to fight environmental aggressors.

Central heating and chill winds create chaos for your skin, but Visible Youth™ skincare calms things down while being a refreshing formula to lift your spirits.
