Cold Comforts: Sarah Chapman’s Top Winter Ingredients

Our skincare guru, London facialist and skincare expert, Sarah Chapman has shared her top ingredients for keeping your complexion healthy and glowing throughout the colder months.

08 February 2021

Lower temperatures, harsh winds and blasts of central heating can damage your complexion’s natural barrier, leading to dryness and irritation. However, help is at hand – certain ingredients are scientifically proven to boost skin’s resilience and restore lost hydration.

Our skincare guru, London facialist and skincare expert, Sarah Chapman has shared her top ingredients for keeping your complexion healthy and glowing throughout the colder months.

Hyaluronic acid

This hydration hero draws moisture from the air around us and holds it in the skin, preventing it from evaporating. This moisture helps your complexion to stay plump and firm and can even smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.

Find it in: Skinesis Intense Hydrating Booster, a featherweight serum that floods skin with low molecular-weight hyaluronic acid (meaning it can penetrate deeper into the skin). The formula also contains an advanced active that protects against airborne bacteria.

Omega oils

Omega oils, which can be found in plant and nut extracts, play a crucial part in skin health: they moisturise at a cellular level, keeping the skin supple and flexible. They also reduce inflammation, making them perfect for treating irritated, flaky areas.

Find them in: Skinesis Overnight Facial and Morning Facial. These silky day- and night-time elixirs nourish, protect and restore a youthful glow with nurturing natural oils, essential vitamins and antioxidants.

Ceramides

Also known as fatty acids, ceramides act as the ‘glue’ between skin cells. Strengthening this glue bolsters the skin’s barrier, acting like a seal to keep external aggressors out, and moisture in; and helping your skin to stay youthful and radiant.

Find them in: Skinesis Comfort Cream D-stress. Our SOS cream for flaky, reactive or compromised complexions, this rich, buttery cream instantly soothes with advanced anti-inflammatories, whilst reducing future irritation by boosting skin’s defences.

Top tip:

When we talk about hydrating the skin, most people think of moisturiser; but keeping your skin replenished can start at the very first step of your routine. Harsh, foaming cleansers often contain lathering agents that can strip the skin – instead, try a formula with omega oils like my Ultimate Cleanse, which conditions while it purifies.
