Preparing your skin for the winter cold is easy with the right skin products!
Red-nosed reindeer may be cute, but red-nosed chicas? Not so much. Dry, cold air stresses skin, making it feel tight, dehydrated, and rough—and no amount of makeup’s going to fix or look good on that. Enter L’Oreal Paris with the solution. A new quartet of products for all skin types, Youth Code Youth Regenerating Skincare immediately makes skin comfortable, hydrated, and refreshed. A decade of scientific research went into this collection, and it was clearly time well spent.
I loved it all, and I’m pretty picky:
Eye Cream: The flattened, angled, rounded metal tip of the squeeze tube applicator feels cool gliding around the eye area, and the cream itself melts on contact. I said adios to crepe-iness and puffiness. See ya, wouldn’t wanna be ya.
Serum Intense: I’m kind of obsessed with serums, and this one did not disappoint. It’s silky and liquidy, not thick, and absorbed right away, leaving my skin smooth as, well, silk.
SPF 30 Day Lotion Moisturizer: I’d no sooner leave the house without SPF than I would shoes. Don’t be fooled by gray days; you can still get UVA (the aging rays) and UVB (the burning rays) sun damage. This oil-free yet nourishing lotion worked perfectly. Velvety, protected skin, here I come.
Day/Night Cream Moisturizer: It may say Day, but I use this at Night. The rich, SPF-free cream is ideal before bedtime; it comes in a jar rather than a pump dispenser, and so, is a touch more emollient than the Day Lotion. This is exactly what skin needs in the PM. I awoke looking, if not exactly feeling, like a youngster.
Remember to use a gentle exfoliator once or twice a week. Even in winter, your skin will benefit from having a clean slate. And your products will work 100% better.
