How to elevate your skincare routine in winter
As we transition between seasons, the change in temperature can take a toll on our skin. Now is the perfect time to elevate and enhance your skincare routine. The best routines start with the correct skincare essentials - get these right and it will make a world of difference to your skin.
Include Vitamin C + B
With so many benefits, Vitamin C and B are a must for your daily regime. Aspect Extreme C 20 is a powerful antioxidant serum containing Vitamin C and peptides to help promote skin elasticity and illuminate the skin. We also love to pair this with Aspect Extreme B 17, a powerhouse serum formulated with B vitamins to help prevent dehydration, even out skin tone and balance excess oil. Don’t miss these steps in your morning routine – these are essential!
Increase hydration levels
Keep your skin plump and hydrated with Aspect Hydrating Serum, a skin-quenching Hyaluronic Acid serum to bind moisture and replenish hydration. Key ingredients include Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) to help maintain hydration and balance oils, Vitamin C to help illuminate and protect the skin, Sodium Hyaluronate to help smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and the Aspect Signature Blend of certified organic Indigenous Australian superfoods.
Shield against UV
Regardless of the season, one step you cannot miss is shielding your skin against UV with a sun protection product. Aspect Sun Envirostat Face SPF 50 is great for those who live a more active lifestyle and/or have combination or oily skin type. If you’re looking for something a little more hydrating, Hydrating Face SPF 50+ is perfect for the ultimate protection and nourishment. For something a little more multifunctional, CC Cream SPF 50+ offers broad spectrum protection and a universal colour-correcting tint, perfect to use alone or as a primer prior to makeup application.
Use an eye cream
Most people tend to only use eye cream at night, but it is important to use this in the morning too. Aspect Eyelift 3 not only boosts hydration and replenishes moisture across the eye area, it also helps to reduce the visible appearance of wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness.
Restore with Retinol
If you haven’t already, be sure to include Retinol in your nightly routine. Retinol Brulee is a refining night serum that works to invigorate the skin for a more youthful appearance. Introduce this gradually as directed by your skincare professional and apply onto cleansed skin first before other serums. As Vitamin A helps to retexturize and smooth the skin, it is important to use a maximum SPF during the day when using this product.
Lock in hydration
It’s easy to sometimes forget to moisturise as part of your night time routine, especially when you’re using serums and already incorporating extra steps, but it is as essential step to give your skin some extra nourishment, hydration and recovery overnight. Super Moisturising Complex is the perfect night time moisturiser that is luxuriously rich and perfect to pop on as the last step in your routine.
Give your skin a boost
Elevate your skin routine by applying a mask at least once a week. Not only do the benefits of masks target specific skin concerns, they are a vital step to help skin stay hydrated and healthy. The Aspect Probiotic Mask is the perfect pick me up as it delivers an infusion of vitamins, probiotics and antioxidants. This mask can be left on overnight to intensify results.
If your skin is on the oilier, more congested side, the Exfoliating Clay Mask would be more suitable as it works to reduce excess oil, remove impurities and help refine the skin by lifting the build-up of dirt and debris.
If you’re in need of some extra hydration or your skin is feeling a little stressed, you will also love the luxurious Aspect Hydrating Mask – the perfect blend of moisture-boosting ingredients including Vitamins A, B, C and E plus Shea Butter and Sodium Hyaluronate to help plump out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and keep skin feeling great. You can use this one in the AM or PM, or leave on overnight for the ultimate hydration boost.
