Nothing takes more of a beating during the winter months than people’s skin. According to Everyday Health , changing your skin care regimen during this season is essential to prevent irritation and damage from dry air, harsh wind and heaters.
To help avoid skin problems as winter closes in, Mannatech , a global provider of health and wellness products, has provided a list of simple ways to help keep skin soft and hydrated.
1.Moisturize regularly – Simply applying moisturizer within three minutes of showering or washing hands helps lock in moisture longer and keeps skin from drying up.
2.Drink lots of water – Proper hydration in the winter is often neglected due to the cold temperatures, but it is especially important for keeping the body and skin healthy and nourished.
3.Use sunblock – While the temperatures may be low, UV damage from the sun can be particularly harsh in the winter when many go unprotected. Remember to use sunblock year round.
4.Use mild soap – Harsh soaps can further aggravate already irritated skin. Avoid highly alkaline and detergent soaps and prioritize areas that are dirty or produce odors to avoid unnecessary washing.
5.Get plenty of rest – Sleeping is the body’s natural way of recharging and healing. By getting enough rest, the skin has time to regenerate as well.
“Cold weather shouldn’t be taken lightly; it can be harsher on our skin than any other weather conditions,” said Dr. Robert Sinnott, Mannatech CEO and Chief Science Officer. “While wintertime can be rough on our skin, following these few simple precautions can allow us to enjoy the cold weather, while standing up to conditions that could dry out our skin.”
Additionally, Dr. Martin Kassir, co-creator of Ūth™ Skin Crème and renowned dermatologist, suggests using products that contain glycans, such as Mannatech’s Ūth Skin Crème and Mannatech LIFT™ Day Moisturizer. Ūth Skin Crème has been formulated to fortify the skin matrix and both products have been shown in clinical trials to hydrate skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
I am a huge fan of Mannatech products! They are absolutely amazing. Mannatech sent me a few of their products to try out and I have been using these products for about two weeks now. Below is a list of the products as well as my thoughts on each one:
Mannatech's FIRM with Ambrotose body creme is a rich botanically based, proprietary blend of science and nature, based on herbal principals. Formulated without synthetic colors, this creme is also paraben-free and without mineral oil.
This rich, luxurious moisturizing lotion is perfect for firming up your skin. I use it right after my shower when my skin is still damp, to lock in moisture. My skin looks radiant and supple even 24 hours after using it! I have really noticed a firming effect on my arms, tummy and legs, too. I love it!
Treat yourself to the Mannatech LIFT™ Multiphase Serum with oat kernel extract. This age-defying, rich formula lifts, tightens and firms the face, including the area around the eyes. It also helps improve skin tone and elasticity and minimizes the appearance of pore size and fine lines and wrinkles. With this silky soft solution, your age just becomes a number.
After cleansing, I apply this amazing serum all over my face neck and chest area. I can actually see and feel it tightening up my skin.
Release your body’s natural ability to support beautiful, healthy skin through a new, patented microsphere delivery system that is designed to nourish your skin with youth-inducing ingredients in a time-released pattern. This pattern optimizes the natural production of skin cells at all levels by delivering naturally sourced glycans, featuring Manapol® powder.
I use this creme usually at night right after I use the multiphase serum. It absorbs right into my skin, leaving it silky, hydrated and very firm.
This exceptional formula contains a blend of natural botanicals and a breakthrough amino acid-based ingredient that helps keep the skin at rest during the night, enhancing its natural repairing system. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in just eight weeks.
My skin has shown a dramatic improvement in moisture after just using it only a few times! I love this night cream!
