1.  Your Skin Needs a Drink

The winter wind and cold weather coupled with dry, centrally heated air indoors causes your skin to lose its moisture.   Keeping it well hydrated is key to maintaining a dewy complexion. We recommend investing in a higher-intensity moisturizer which will deliver the nutrients that your skin needs plus keep any redness, irritation and flakiness at bay.  

We have several rich Dibi Milano moisturisers which are perfect for this time of year, including Hydra Perfection Extreme Moisturising Cream.  Speak to your Sparx skin care expert who will be able to analyse your skin and recommend the best product for you.

2.  Exfoliate to brighten your complexion

Dibi Milano Acid Infusion Peeling Night CreamWhen winter weather dries out your skin, it slows down the natural removal process of old skin cells and other debris.  This can leave you with a dull complexion as well as blocking pores and causing spots.   The solution is to use a gentle exfoliation treatment to get rid of the dry unhealthy layer on top and reveal your fresh new skin below. 

Exfoliation also helps prevent fine lines and wrinkles, increasing skin cell turnover and encouraging new, more elastic skin cells to grow.   Fresh new skin cells also absorb your skin care products better – so it’s clear exfoliation is a win when it comes to glowing skin!

Why not try Dibi Milano Acid Infusion Peeling Night Cream?  It will do its work while you sleep!  This active night cream decreases the adhesion of dead skin cells, which makes up most of the outer layer of your skin and keeps the skin balanced and vibrant.  It contains Vitiman E (antioxidant), Pyruvic Acid (exfoliating action) and Allantoin (soothing action).  You will see a noticeable difference morning after morning.    Available at our Winchester skin clinic.

3. Avoid Face Wipes

We know they’re handy but they are extremely bad for the planet and they are not doing your complexion any favours either.  Wipes sap the moisture from your face, so we recommend you opt for a gentle cleanser instead.  We have a great range of Dibi Milano cleansers available, including Face Perfection Nourishing Cleansing Milk, which is perfect for this time of year. This soft and delicate milk cleanser will remove make-up and leave you with clean, soft skin. Active ingredients include a Lacto-Probiotoc which strengthens the skin’s natural barrier.

4. Use a Serum

You may be wondering what a serum is, never mind why you should be using one in your skin care routine, so let us explain!   A serum is an important product that you apply to your skin after cleansing but before moisturising.  Serums are designed to deliver active hydrating ingredients directly into your skin. They also contain key nutrients and calming ingredients to reduce the visible signs of aging and revitalise the skin. 

Serums are especially good to use in chilly weather to prevent your skin from becoming dry, irritated and red.   We recommend you try Dibi Milano Hydra Perfection Extreme Moisturisation Concentrate With Hyaluronic Acid.  This is which is a light and fresh moisture boosting serum designed to quench your thirsty skin, leaving it fresh and radiant. We stock a range of other serums designed for specific skin care concerns.  Book a skin analysis at our Winchester clinic to find the right one for you. 

5. Practice Safe Sun

It might be cold and cloudy outside, dermatologists recommend you still need to use broad spectrum UV protection during the winter months to prevent sun damage to your skin.  Some dermatologists believe that that office lighting and light from screens can be harmful to your skin, so even if you aren’t enjoying a winter walk or hitting the ski slopes, it’s important to take UV protection seriously during the winter months.

 At Sparx we love Dibi Milano Solarium Sun Good Spray in SPF50.  This photoprotective spray is invisible as soon as it’s touch dry.  It’s light and absorbs quickly, plus it’s suitable for the face and body.  It’s water resistant and can even be used on wet skin, so you can keep it for using on your summer holidays too.
