Beauty SOS: How To Fix Dry Winter Skin
Marielle Alix, Head Therapist, REN
'Switch to a gentler skincare routine: avoid all products containing harsh ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide or too much salicylic acid which would be too drying. Stick to clean formulas such as the ones from REN Skincare. You may want to use the ClearCalm 3 range which gently looks after the skin’s ecosystem whilst mopping up excess sebum.
The ClearCalm 3 Clarity Restoring Mask helps heal the skin with its minerals, in particular Sulphur, also known as the “beauty mineral”. If due to the harsh elements, your skin is sensitised, try the REN Hydracalm range, starting with their Cleansing Gel or even Milk. And at night, apply 2 drops of the REN Omega 3 Overnight Repair Serum on clean skin. All will miraculously help soothe and balance the skin, without making it excessively oily.
Don’t forget to hydrate from outside too – drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and green juices or smoothies to give your skin super healing minerals, vitamins and EFA’s. Add cold pressed oils such as walnut or flaxseed to your soups or salads for an extra boost of anti-inflammatory Omega 3’s. And if your skin really acts angry, add MSM – the sulphur molecule - to your daily regime of supplements.'
