Alyssa Mahachek, Murad Global Eductional Coordinator, shares her top tips on how to keep skin hydrated this Winter.
Now that we're heading into the colder months, it's time to re-evaluate your skincare regime. Winter’s harsh weather can wreak havoc on your skin, especially its moisture level. Your summer moisturiser may not be cutting it in the hydration department, so save your skin, and re-evaluate your seasonal hydration regimen now.
When looking for a hydrating moisturiser in the colder months, sometimes the word “hydrating” gets paired with a heavy formula, which can be an instant “No, thank you." I use Hydro-Dynamic® Ultimate Moisture because it is super lightweight and provides 24-hour hydration. This moisturiser contains Hyaluronic Acid, which enhances your skin’s ability to attract and retain water for intense, long-lasting hydration.
My tip for plump, youthfully smooth skin is to pair that moisturiser with Murad’s Hydro-Dynamic® Quenching Essence. This new product was inspired by Korean beauty, and it happens to be my favorite Murad product. The reason I love it is because it’s weightless and leaves my skin extremely silky. I suffer from dry patches during the winter, and this has become a staple in my regimen. Glycolic Acid is one of the main ingredients, which evenly exfoliates and promotes skin’s natural renewal.
When pairing these 2 products, it is all about layering. First, cleanse your skin with your favorite Murad cleanser, and then apply the Hydro-Dynamic® Quenching Essence evenly over your face and neck. Next, reach for Hydro-Dynamic® Ultimate Moisture and massage it into your face and neck. Your skin will be left supple, smooth, and impeccably hydrated.
