5 Stocking Stuffers for Radiant Winter Skin
The Best Skincare Products for Your Loved Ones
Winter is here, and so is the holiday season! As temperatures drop, it’s crucial to keep your skin hydrated and protected. We’ve curated a list of the top five stocking stuffers to help your and your loved ones’ skin brave the cold and emerge glowing into the New Year.
1. ZO Skin Health Hydrating Cleanser
This winter essential not only cleanses your skin but also deeply hydrates it. Perfect for sensitive or chapped skin, the ZO Hydrating Cleanser removes dirt, makeup, excess oil, and minimizes dryness. Use it morning and night to maintain a radiant complexion throughout the winter months.
2. Skinbetter Science Alto Advanced Defense and Repair Serum
Alto Advanced is a dual-patented protector. It’s more than just a Vitamin C antioxidant; packed with 17 additional antioxidants, this potent serum shields your skin against internal and external free radicals while protecting against UVA/UVB rays. Alto Advanced is highly recommended for those dealing with redness or uneven skin tone. Consistent use, morning and night, yields the best results.
3. Skin Medica HA⁵ Rejuvenating Hydrator
SkinMedica’s HA⁵ is like a refreshing drink of water for your skin, something we all need, especially in the colder months. This serum offers immediate smoothing and plumping effects while supporting your skin’s natural ability to replenish hyaluronic acid, essential for improved skin health. By age 50, you’ll have lost about 50% of the hyaluronic acid you had at 20. Apply HA⁵ to damp, cleansed skin morning and night to experience its cooling, soothing, hydrating, and line-smoothing benefits.
4. Ultraceuticals B² Hydrating Sheet Mask
The Ultraceuticals B² Hydrating Sheet Mask is the perfect mid-week hydration boost. This hydrogel mask, designed in two pieces to fit your face perfectly, can stay on your skin for up to 20 minutes. Packed with panthenol (provitamin B5), sodium hyaluronate, and peptides, it holds 1,000 times its weight in water. These masks are ideal for post-procedure treatments like lasers and microneedling and are safe for sensitive or compromised skin. For an extra refreshing experience, refrigerate the mask before use, and use a jade roller to enhance product absorption.
5. Colorscience Glow SPF
Even though the sun may hide during winter, its harmful rays are still present. UVA/UVB rays remain potent, and your skin’s natural protection is reduced due to environmental factors. Protect your skin and keep it hydrated with Glow by Colorescience, our favorite winter-time SPF. This reef-safe SPF is a mineral broad-spectrum 50, providing protection against harmful rays, blue light, pollution, and infrared rays. It also adds a touch of color. Make it a part of your daily routine after moisturizing, and say goodbye to foundation.
