How to Get the Permanent Winter Glow

Happy Day 8 of the 12 Days of CHRIS-elle! Today I teamed up with Elemis to bring you guys my tips on achieving that permanent winter glow. Keep scrolling to see how I do it and make sure to comment on all of the 12 days to be entered to win some amazing stuff!

Dry winter weather really takes a toll on my skin. It’s almost like the air just sucks all the moisture out of my pores! Luckily, I’ve figured out a way to keep my skin hydrated AND give it a gorgeous glow during the colder season.

As you guys know, the key to getting fabulous skin during the winter months is moisture, moisture, moisture! And no products give me that winter glow quite like Elemis. Sourced from nature and ever-evolving, the Elemis products are some of my top skincare staples. They’ve got everything from a killer Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm (because who will really say no to more collagen?) to get off all that holiday party makeup to a SuperFood Face Oil that instantly hydrates without leaving an oily residue.

1. Remove All Makeup

The first step to making sure your skin is glowy and not dull is to get alllll that makeup off! Having a clean slate for your skincare products mean that they can do everything they need to do. No one likes clogged pores and nothing is worse than last night’s makeup still on your skin! I added the Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm to my routine and I’m so glad I did. Cleansing balms are a great gentle way to take off all your makeup- it just melts it right off and this one smells especially nice! It leaves my skin cleansed, nourished and soft.

2. Add a Layer of Moisture  

After I take my makeup off, it’s time to replenish that moisture. Not a lot of people realize this but having a different moisturizer for daytime and nighttime can be really beneficial. The Peptide Night Recovery Cream Oil is a great overnight boost of moisture to add to your skin when it’s rejuvenating its cells while you sleep. It’s all the moisture of a cream and oil combined! For daytime, the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream gives me the moisture and radiance I need to look and feel brand new!

3. Don’t Forget Your Eyes

Along with the Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream Oil and the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, Elemis has moisture covered for all over! When my skin gets dry, the first place it shows is around my eyes (you guys know how insecure I am about my under-eye circles). The skin there is so delicate that it really needs that extra hydration. Along with the Cream Oil and Marine Cream, these eye masks are great to give your eyes some extra love and brightness.

4. Lock the Moisture In

You guys know how OBSESSED I am with oils, and the SuperFood Face Oil is amazing. I like to think of oils as a way to lock all of that other moisture in. This oil, in particular, is a part of their Superfood line which means it’s packed full of amazing nutrients to help nourish and hydrate your skin. It’s full of healthy anti-oxidants like broccoli, flaxseed, and daikon radish and though most people would think to only use oil at night, this one is made to use first thing in the morning! Add a few drops of the oil all over your face before your moisturizer and it will instantly create a barrier of moisture for your skin as well as gives instant radiance.
