Winter is on its way. And that means sweaters, boots and scarves galore. Unfortunately, the most wonderful time of year isn’t always so wonderful to your skin. Between the cold weather outside and dry heat indoors, your complexion is under a lot of stress. If dry, dull skin is taking the happy from your holidays, Pür has the perfect answer for you.
Slather on as much moisturizer as you like, it’s all for naught without regular exfoliation. That’s because as your skin dries out, it creates a layer of dead cells. As this layer builds up, it prevents topical products from reaching the healthy cells below that need it. Manual exfoliators, like Pür Polish, help remove this cellular barrier, so your moisturizer can get where it’s needed most.
Like a sponge, your skin absorbs moisture from the environment to keep its cells healthy and functioning. Unfortunately, that also means when the humidity takes a dive, your skin does too. That’s why it’s important to use an intensive hydrator in the winter, like Moisture Infusion, that not only replenishes lost moisture, but also traps existing moisture inside the skin without clogging pores.
Your complexion isn’t the only thing suffers when the mercury drops. Lips, hands and anything else exposed to the elements are just as prone to drying out as your face. While you could stock up on lip creams, hand lotions and other products, a multipurpose conditioning balm, like Pür Balm, can keep the cost (and clutter) to a minimum.
