But the cold nonetheless items lots of beauty problems that, fairly frankly, we might reasonably do with out. So we referred to as in the professionals to let us know how to make the snow our buddy and no longer our foe…
Add additional layers to your skin care regimen
You need to layer-up your wintry weather skin care the identical method you would with your garments. Try the use of a facial oil ahead of your moisturiser to lend a hand to give protection to your pores and skin’s barrier from the snow. “Reach for serums with anti-inflammatory properties,” says Dermalogica Digital Education Executive, Victoria Schofield. “This will combat the sensitising effect of fluctuating indoor and outdoor temperatures. Dermalogica’s Barrier Defence Booster nourishes the skin and relieves dryness. It contains Squalane, which locks in moisture, while soothing Oat Oil helps combat sensitivity and support healthy-looking skin.”
Turn redness into rosiness
If your cheeks generally tend to redden due to the drop in temperature, don’t check out to hide it with heavy make-up – include it. “Add a little extra blush,” says Makeup Artist Nikki Wolff. “Sweep it across your nose, too, for that healthy, just-been-outside flush. Flushed cheeks in the cold are super pretty and youthful. Oh, and wear lots of lip balm!”
Disguise a crimson runny nostril
It’s most probably you’ll be affected by a cold at the moment and a runny nostril is a significant make-up ruiner. “Use serums with anti-inflammatory formulas to combat redness and reduce flakiness,” says Victoria. “Applying a green concealer under foundation can also help to neutralise red patches.”
Ditch your powder for dewy make-up
When your pores and skin is feeling dry and perhaps broken, the last item it wishes is to be caked in powder. “Stick to hydrating, oil-based foundation to ensure your skin stays hydrated and dewy,” says Glo Skin Beauty Lead Developer, Amanda Von Dem Hagen. “Powder used in the colder weather can have drying effects on the skin and, in turn, leave it looking dry and unhealthy.” A cream highlighter may be key to faking a wholesome glow. We love the NARS Illuminators.
Waterproof the whole lot
Snow is rainy, other folks, so in addition to an umbrella, you’re going to need to pass H.A.M on the water resistant merchandise. “It’s essential in the snow to make sure your makeup doesn’t run, especially in those stop-start blizzards we’ve been having of late,” says Sascha Jackson, Stila UK’s Lead Pro Artist. “Start by using Stila Stay All Day® Waterproof Brow Colour, then move to the eyes with a waterproof liner – a snow staple. A long-lasting base is also key and a matte red lip is perfect for winter days”.
