Just as we spring clean our homes, we also need to spring clean our face and bodies. As New Jersey skincare specialist Dr. Aurora DeJuliis explains, “When it’s very cold, there is less moisture in the environment, this lack of moisture is compounded by wind, which blows moisture away from the skin. In a dry environment, water is lost from skin cells leaving skin feeling sore and chapped. Don’t assume that slathering on any moisturizer gives skin the hydration it needs. It’s not that simple. Moisturizers work in two ways, using two types of ingredients. There are humectants, such as hyaluronic acid and urea, and occlusives, such as paraffin. Humectants draw water from the lower levels of the skin – this comes from the water we drink – to rehydrate the upper levels of the skin, while occlusives have a barrier function to help lock in this moisture. Winter weather demands a moisturizer that’s heavier on the occlusives than your normal everyday moisturizer, making it more of a balm than a cream. It is especially important to pay attention to what type of moisturizer you are applying to your face. As Dr. DeJuliis explains, “The skin around the eyes is very thin, and when the air is cold and dry, you might well see an increase in fine lines in this area.” The following are products from Dr. DeJuliis’ skincare line that will give your bodies largest organ the TLC it needs for a spring tune up.
