" To keep your skin looking fabulous and healthy all year round, you have to adjust your skincare routine from time to time."
Your skin is your first defense against harsh conditions. It protects you from the extreme weather, pollutants and pathogenic microorganisms. Due to the constant exposure to these external elements, your skin condition changes from time to time. In the winter months, your skin tends to be drier than throughout the rest of the year. In order to keep your skin looking fabulous and healthy all year round, you have to adjust your daily skincare routine according to the season and condition of your skin.

Skincare Product Layering to Winter-Proof Your Skin
You wear few layers of clothes to protect your body from the freezing temperatures during the winter season. For the same reason, your skin also needs few layers of skincare products to stay soft, supple and radiant throughout the winter. Skincare product layering strengthens the skin's defense against harsh, cold temperatures and protects your skin from premature ageing.
Skincare product layering is much simpler than you may ever think. You don't need to add many new products to your daily skincare routine in order to winter-proof your skin. As a skincare scientist, I have been using these two simple steps to keep the skin glowing throughout the winter:
Cold temperatures dry out your skin and make it looks undernourished. To make sure that your skin glow even during the coldest winter day, mix one to two pumps of Rose Gold Antioxidant Youthful Serum and 4 to 6 drops of Chamomile & Cacay Oil in your palm then apply all over the freshly-cleansed face and neck every morning and evening. Rose Gold Antioxidant Youthful Serum has been formulated with 24-karat gold nanoparticles and saccharide isomerate, a 100% plant-derived complex that has been shown to hydrate the skin for up to 72 hours and smooth out the appearance of wrinkles and lines. Chamomile & Cacay Oil has been formulated with blue chamomile, cacay and rice bran oil to nourish and revitalise the skin. This ultra comforting face oil is suitable for all skin types including sensitive and stressed skin.
" Miracle cream! I started using Nano Gold Nourishing Cream when I was in London during the winter season. I found that this cream has great moisturising effects. The expression lines have disappeared from my face. I live in Asia where the weather is always hot and humid. I continue to use the cream and it works well too. I can say this is an amazing cream. It makes my skin looks dewy and firm." Susy, Singapore learn more >>>
Moisturiser is the key to healthy looking skin all year round. Throughout the cold winter months, it is important to make sure that your moisturiser is strong enough to protect your skin against the extreme weather. If your skin tends to suffer from dryness during the winter months, apply Nano Gold Nourishing Cream all over the face and neck after facial serum and oil to seal the nutrients and lock in the moisture on your skin. This ultra nourishing moisturiser has been formulated with 24-karat nano gold particles, stabilised vitamin E and shea butter to replenish skin's moisture; protecting dry skin from environmental damage and premature ageing.
For those who suffer from persistent or chronic dry skin that tends to worsen during winter season, apply Ultra Nourishing Repair Balm as a moisturiser as frequent as required. This 100% active ingredients, no-added-water restorative balm has been specially formulated to restore skin barriers, nourish and protect skin from signs of dryness, ageing and environmental damage. Warm a small amount of this balm in your palm then gently massage into the skin. Apply on top of serum or oil to calm and comfort easily irritated, dry skin.
Like with everything in life, to achieve great results, you have to do this winter skincare routine every day until spring comes. Once you are used to this skincare product layering, you may even want to keep it for all year round especially if you have dry skin.
Formulated with orange blossom, rosewood, pomegranate and sea buckthorn oil to neutralise the drying effects of ageing, extreme temperatures and other harsh environmental factors learn more >>>
