Cold air, harsh wind and heating turned up full blast – yes, the winter months can be super taxing on our skin! Here are our best tips with Ella Bache to winter-proof your skincare routine and keep your complexion looking dewy, bouncy and radiant through the cooler seasons.
You’ve probably heard this one before. Our bodies are made up of more than half water, so keeping up with your water intake is mega important. For those who prefer a bit of science, drinking water increases the blood flow to the skin, making it look healthier and plumper. It’s also a cost effective solution - you’re welcome.
Layer Your Hydration
Infuse your skin with hydrating serums and moisturisers in winter to keep your complexion looking radiant and feeling plump. Look for ingredients in your skincare like hyaluronic acid, spirulines, vitamin E, shea butter and aloe vera. If you’ve been tossing up about using oils, now is the ideal time to add one into your routine! Ella Bache’s Botanical Skin Treatment oil is suitable for all skin types with a gentle blend of botanicals that repair, rehydrate, and protect the skin through all seasons.
Up Your Barrier Protection
Boost the skin barrier to help prevent any future moisture loss. Your skin barrier is important when it comes to increasing your skin's natural resistance to environmental exposure. Ella Bache’s Spirulines range is designed to protect your skin barrier through recharging your skin with proteins, vitamins, minerals and nutrients for a visibly refined and smoothed complexion.
Treat Yourself to a Hydrating Treatment
While everyday skincare is uber important, a hydrating treatment or facial can be a very helpful addition in boosting the effectiveness of your other skincare, while targeting specific concerns. Ella Bache’s Stop The Clock + LED Facial is rich in antioxidants and vitamins, designed to leave your skin looking radiant and feeling hydrated even in the winter time.
Ditch the Hot Showers
Okay so maybe don’t completely ditch hot showers, but while they might be keeping you toasty warm, hot showers are really drying on your skin. Make sure to turn down the temperature when washing your face and level up the hydration with nourishing facial moisturisers and face masks. Don’t forget to use a good body lotion - the Ella Bache Water Source Moisturising Body Cream will do the trick by restoring moisture levels to even the driest skin.
Ella Bache is open Tuesday - Friday from 9:00am and 6:00pm, located outside the Batman Drive entrance of Collins Square.
