Essentials for winter skin

Dry, dull looking skin in winter is distressing and well as uncomfortable. If you are distressed by winter skin concerns we have good news!
Skinsmart has a variety of skincare products that will not only help to hydrate and plump up the skin but also target other concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles.

Cleansers
Obagi Gentle Rejuvenation Soothing Cleanser:
This calming gel cleanser offers relief from inflammation and irritation. It effectively removes makeup and impurities without disrupting the skins natural moisture barrier.

Neostrata Facial Cleanser:
Facial Cleanser is a gentle soap-free, fragrance-free formulation which effectively cleanses and exfoliates without drying or stripping the skin. This product is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin and is gentle enough to use twice a day.

Serums:
SkinCeuticals B5 Hydrating Serum:
Hydrating B5 Gel replenishes nutrients the skin needs to create a supple, smooth textured, younger-looking skin. This oil-free moisturiser combines vitamin B5 with hyaluronic acid, the body’s natural hydrator, to help prevent moisture loss from the skin.
It can be used alone or underneath a daily moisturiser to provide extra hydration, and is ideal for all skin types.

Neostrata Skin Active Tri Therapy Serum:
This exciting new product from Neostrata is formulated with a triple anti-ageing complex to help volumize and sculpt skin, improving the appearance of deep wrinkles and skin laxity while hydrating the skin without causing sensitivity.

Obagi Professional C serum 10%:
This oil-free antioxidant serum is suitable for dry and sensitive skin types. It stimulates collagen synthesis, reduces inflammation, suppresses pigmentation and helps the skin to retain hydration. Vitamin C enhances UV protection for anti-ageing and skin cancer prevention.

Moisturisers:
SkinCeuticals Epidermal Repair:
Epidermal Repair is a barrier cream specifically formulated for application after non-ablative professional resurfacing procedures such as chemical peels, IPL and microdermabrasion. Applied immediately following these procedures, this product repairs the skin’s barrier function, soothes sensitised skin, and can also be used to treat conditions such as eczema.

SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore:
Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 is formulated with optimal concentrations of reparative lipids to restore the skin’s barrier function, which may have become compromised due to the natural ageing process. 2% pure ceramides restore the skin’s barrier function, 4% natural cholesterol restores skin elasticity and promotes self-repair, and 2% fatty acids assist in replenishing lost lipids due to ageing. This unique lipid correction cream has been clinically proven to improve skin smoothness, laxity, pore appearance and overall radiance.
