In life, there are some things you just can’t get away from. In the winter, one of those things is dry skin. Some may not suffer as much as others but when it occurs it can be the most gruesome thing to get rid of. Enter Algenist skincare. We’ve been test driving a few products from this brand from fall to winter to see if it stands the test of time and nips dry skin in the bud. What’s the verdict? It works.
Read on for our seasonal dry skin tips and how you can incorporate our favorite Algenist products into your routine.
Invest in a Humidifier.
A humidifier can do wonders for your skin when the air is dry. We suggest not settling for the cheapest one you can find. Instead, invest in a good humidifier that can be used during all seasons. Adding moisture to the air during the winter season can help you beat seasonal dry skin.
Mask + Chill
Listen up! If you’re going to hibernate this winter, you might as well make your time spent indoors worth your time. Spend some time taking care of your skin. Start with a mask that detoxifies and hydrates the skin like Algenist ALIVE Prebiotic Balancing Mask. While we love how hydrating this mask is, we’d be lying to you if we didn’t say we are obsessed with its color-morphing feature.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize.
If you don’t have the right moisturizer for your skin, it’s time to get one. There are plenty moisturizers on the market that are great for seasonal dry skin and being the product junkies that we are, we have a ton. This season, our focus is on hydration and minimizing the appearance of fine lines as well as wrinkles. Fine lines are much more prominent when your skin is dehydrated. Our go-to for this is Algenist SPLASH Absolute Hydration Replenishing Gel Moisturizer. Why we love it? After use, the skin has a long-lasting hydration, it feels supple and the moisturizer works well under makeup too!
Here’s a tip: Get bang for your buck by applying a finger-tip amount of product. A little goes a very long way.
Hydrating Mists Are for Winter, Too!
As we know, hydrating mists are super popular during the summer seasons. It’s a great way to refresh and cool your skin on the hottest days. However, if you’re not using a hydrating mist in the winter, you’re truly missing out on the benefits. This season, we’re getting the best of both worlds with Algenist SPLASH Hydrating Setting Mist. How so? Not only are we splashing this on to hydrate our skin during the day, this mist is also ideal for setting your makeup. Want that dewy (not greasy or oily) makeup look during the colder months? This is your pick!
