I know firsthand how brutal winter can be on your complexion. As someone with naturally dry skin, I have an especially tough time during these frigid months. Rather than continuing with my regular skincare regimen, I make a point to bring in a few extra products each winter to help combat my dry, sensitive skin. 5 essential skincare products to be exact!
Plus, I was so excited to be able to experiment with some of the new skincare products that Primally Pure is now carrying and let me tell you, they did not disappoint! By trying out these products, I discovered some secret weapons that I just had to share with you! These 5 skincare products will help resolve your most frustrating winter skin troubles, including redness, dull skin, and more.
1. Cleansing Oil For Dry Skin
Switching to an oil-based cleanser (especially in the winter!) has made such a positive impact on my skin’s health and appearance! And I know what you may be thinking! If I have oily skin doesn’t an oil-based cleanser make it worse?! Well, based on the scientific principle, the oil cleansing method utilizes beneficial oils that penetrate deep into pores to dissolve grime and build-up. This age-old method of cleansing effectively purifies and nourishes the skin while keeping its natural moisture barrier in-tact! Therefore, even if you have oily skin (like I used to!) all-natural, oil-based cleansers are still the best option!
However, you want to look for a cleanser made with a blend of oils. Such as tamanu oil, sunflower oil, and jojoba oil. These oils are known to detoxify and dissolve impurities without stripping the skin and forcing it to over-produce sebum. Now, if you have dry skin (like me!) apricot kernel oil, rosehip seed oil, and avocado oil are age-defying oils known to detoxify the skin and deeply cleanse your skin. Without over-drying! As a result, you’re left with a complexion that’s clean and nourished!
This is why I love and highly recommend the Primally Pure Cleansing Oil for Dry Skin! Plus, I absolutely love how this cleansing oil makes my face feel and look.
2. Hydrating Face Mask
If you’re in need of some serious hydration during the winter (like I am!), I highly suggest using a Soothing and Hydrating Face Mask a couple of times a week. I don’t know what I did before this product! It’s as if Primally Pure answered my prayers and created the perfect face mask just in time for winter! Plus, it’s like having a mini spa treatment in your own home.
This face mask is packed with the best, natural ingredients for healing and balancing your skin. Such as Spirulina, Gotu Kola and Colloidal Oatmeal that powerfully work together to support stressed reactive or damaged skin states. All and all, this face mask deeply nourishes delicate skin, relieves redness & sensitivities, and expedites the healing process to create a calm complexion!
3. Facial Mist For Moisture Throughout The Day
If you’ve ever experienced that intense gust of wind while walking to get your mid-day coffee or walking into work, you know how much it can dry up your skin in an instant. That’s why I love carrying around a product I can reapply throughout the day for added moisture! The Primally Pure Everything Spray is my all-time favorite product to carry around in my purse or on-the-go bag! You can use it as a natural toner or spritz it on sensitive areas (face or body) to add the perfect amount of all-natural, mineral-rich moisture.
Not to mention, you can also use The Everything Spray as a quick and easy underarm refresher after the gym! Plus, it is also effective in soothing a wide range of inflammatory skin conditions. This spray is made up of witch hazel and lavender hydrosol to soothe and calm irritated/inflamed skin. Also, it includes organic raw and unfiltered apple cider vinegar (antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral) to help balance pH levels. Lastly, The Everything Spray includes powerful healing enzymes and organic tea tree essential oil that disinfects, heals, and regenerates.
4. Serum For Redness & Irritation
If your skin tends to get a little red or irritated during the winter, this serum is a must! Primally Pure’s Soothing Serum is my savior this time of year. It’s formulated for sensitive skin and works to strengthen the skin’s barrier, decongest, and reduce swelling. Plus, its lightweight formula is perfect for layering under your moisturizer. Additionally, it creates a very calm complexion, soothes sensitive/stressed skin, and restores balance.
This serum also includes powerful anti-inflammatory and restorative ingredients. Including, Pumpkin Seed Oil, Ashwagandha, and Pau D’Arco to help reduce redness and inflammation, repair and strengthen damaged skin, and deeply soothe your skin to support a calm, balanced complexion. All you have to do is simply massage 4-8 drops into damp skin after cleansing/toning for a calm and nourished complexion. Personally, I LOVE to use this product in the morning and then use a heavier moisturizer in the evening!
5. Exfoliant For Dry/Dull Skin
Dry and dull winter skin is usually the result of dead skin cell build-up. Therefore, exfoliating is key to healthy, hydrating, and glowing skin! My favorite all-natural exfoliant is by far the Primally Pure Clarifying Mask! It contains raw & local honey which is an important ingredient known as a natural humectant. It aids in infusing hydration into the skin and expedites the healing process. Not to mention, it’s rich in antibacterial benefits to calm inflammatory skin conditions and contains potent enzymatic properties to gently exfoliate and refine skin texture.
Another ingredient in the Clarifying Mask that I was shocked to see is turmeric powder! Which, if you read any other blog post of mine, you’ll realize that I am a HUGE fan of turmeric powder for your overall wellness. But why put turmeric in a face mask?! Essentially, turmeric is rich in antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits for acne relief and reducing scarring from past breakouts. Curcumin (the main chemical compound in turmeric) decreases UV damage, helps to repair hyperpigmentation and visibly brightens the complexion. Therefore, this mask is crucial for saving dry and dull winter skin! Use this baby two to three times a week and your skin will surely thank you!
