Believe it or not, the long Summer in the Middle East is FINALLY over. We’re all starting to notice that the weather’s becoming more bearable, some would even say pleasant. But once again, we are in that tricky time in-between seasons. Gone is the humidity and in its place, crisp mornings and cool winds, causing the inevitable transitional skin. FOREO has revealed 5 ways to make sure your complexion stays perfect from Summer to Winter.
- Keep your complexion moisturised
Yes, this seems obvious, but you’d be surprised just how many people still miss this part out of their skincare routine. In the cooler months, it is particularly important to fight against the dehydrating effects of the winter weather. Keeping your skin hydrated is important to keep stiffness and dryness at bay, which make the skin more susceptible to outbreaks. Use a moisturizing product that is all natural, such as FOREO’s Coconut Oil Farm to Face UFO-activated mask.
Leaving the skin nourished, smooth and protected, the smart mask is activated by pairing it with FOREO’s latest launch, the UFO 2. Using LED lights, heating and cooling technology as well as T-sonic pulsations to infuse the masks ingredients deep into your skin. Leaving you with a spa-worthy result, in the coziness of your own home.
- Give your moisturiser some help
Why not give your moisturiser all the help it can get? If you opt to use good old fashioned moisturiser, make sure you choose a lightweight lotion that will absorb easily into your skin. To give it an extra push, glide your UFO 2 across your face to increase the absorption of your product. With new, upgraded technology and the possibility of doing personalized treatments in-app (adjusting the intensities of the t-sonic pulsations, choosing your LED lights, as well as the heating and cooling technology), you boost the effect of your skincare product. Infusing the ingredients deep into your complexion, the UFO 2 will allow you to get the most out of every single drop.
- Exfoliate the Winter away
Exfoliating during the winter is necessary as dead skin cells will reduce the amount of absorption you get from the products you apply. Between the cool air outside and the warm air indoors, your skin will dehydrate faster in winter and that means you’ll need to buff away dead skin cells more effectively. Use FOREO’s LUNA mini 3 to cleanse and exfoliate your complexion. Using T-sonic pulsations, switch the handy device onto its unique ‘glow boost’ mode and you will have a cleansed and exfoliated face in just 30 seconds.
- Cut down on shower time
While the cooler weather may urge you for a long, hot bath or shower, fight it! Prolonged contact with hot water can strip the skin of its natural moisture, leaving you even drier than you may have been before. If you love your shower’s steaming hot, make it quick. If not, just turn the temperature down, your skin will thank you for it.
- Add some H20
Drinking plenty of water should also be part of your Winter-friendly skincare routine. Drinking lots of water will not only ensure your insides stay healthy, but it will provide your skin with constant hydration, making it look soft and glowing.
