As winter and cold weather lingers, it is very important to take care of our skin. We all know how cold weather can be super though on our bodies, and how dry air combined with low humidity draws moisture away from the skin.
On this post, we will give you three tips that we think will make your winter skincare regimen a bit easier. Following these tips along with our recommended products will give you the results you need in order to achieve beautiful winter skin.
SKINCARE TIP #1
Use an “activated” charcoal cleanser
Activated charcoal cleansers are very useful in helping your skin detox. They draw dirt, oil and other impurities to the skin’s surface while unclogging pores at the same time.
Activated charcoal can also help fight acne by lifting bacteria, poisons and other harmful chemicals and micro-particles from the skin’s surface. Activated charcoal is a popular ingredient because of its ability to absorb great amounts of impurities from the skin.
The problem with charcoal cleansers is that they tend to dry skin out, making them the last kind of cleanser you'd think to use in winter. But guess what? The new ICON EDITION Cosmic Activated Charcoal Cleanser leaves your skin baby-soft no matter what the season!
That's right: our ICON EDITION Cosmic Activated Charcoal Cleanser is infused with Spirulina extract to provide a powerful cleansing together with a non-drying astringent effect. It also uses Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Juice and Plant Stem Cells to soothe and protect even sensitive skin all year long.
Plus, organic Black Walnut Leaf Extract helps target puffiness and the appearance of swelling. Consider it your new cold weather secret weapon for healthy skin.
SKINCARE TIP #2
Apply a “peel-off” face mask
Peel-off facial masks have become very popular over the past few years. They boast incredible benefits, are very easy to use and fairly inexpensive when compared to professional chemical peels.
These types of masks can also help you detox your skin while revitalizing the skin, treating blackheads, and protecting you from bacteria.
Introducing our new ICON EDITION Nu Apple Peel-Off Mask, a ruby-hued peel off mask that looks as juicy as a delicious red apple and immediately works to peel away at surface imperfections.
This mask is filled with active antioxidants to work deep into pores and lock in dirt and debris. Then the peel-off action lifts them up to reveal a fresher face.
Powerful ingredients such as apple extract and Fruit Cell Culture work on surface skin cells for long-lasting skin brightening effects. Find the ICON EDITION Nu Apple Peel-Off Mask here.
SKINCARE TIP #3
Use a décolletage treatment mask
The décolletage is the upper part of a woman’s torso. Also known as the cleavage, aestheticians have opted to use the French term décolletage.
The décolletage has presented a concern for women since, after the delicate eye area, it is the second most prone to aging. Factors such as fluctuation in weight gain and loss, sun exposure, and breast size have a great impact on how fast the décolletage area shows signs of aging.
So we bring you a solution: the new ICON EDITION Tightening Décolletage Mask Treatment. Our 8-piece mask treatment contains a two month supply; apply it weekly for a perkier, softer décolletage.
We’ve infused each treatment sheet with ubiquinone, an effective antioxidant known to help protect cells against future damage. It also contains Retinyl Palmitate to help encourage collagen and elastin production and minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Our Tightening Décolletage Mask Treatment additionally contains Plant Stem Cell Culture Extract to encourage cell renewal. Find the new ICON EDITION Tightening Décolletage Mask Treatment here.
