Winter Must-Haves: Skin Care Guidance for Frosty Weather.

Winter is a magical season, synonymous with shimmering snowscapes, cozy firesides, and athletically carving down mountainsides. But as joyful as winters can be, they also present unique challenges for our skin.

What happens to our skin in winter?

Did you know that with every degree the temperature drops, our skin produces 10% less oil? Almost all skin types are drier in winter, as less humidity in the air causes the skin to lose moisture more easily. Bracing winds and dehydrating central heating make this even worse, and skin can become very dry, tight and flaky in patches – particularly if already prone to sensitivity.

Below we have gathered some tips for those who revel in the frosty delights of winter, as well as a guide on how to integrate our nourishing biotech skincare into your winter routine, ensuring your skin remains hydrated, protected, and radiant, no matter the weather.

Understanding the BIOEFFECT difference.

BIOEFFECT is a pioneer in biotech skincare, harnessing the power of growth factors to deliver transformative and powerful age-defying results. The EGF Power Serum and EGF Power Cream are revered for their efficacy in helping renew and rejuvenate the skin, while the Imprinting Facial Mask is a luxuriously hydrating treat for the skin which is designed to maximize the benefits of all BIOEFFECT serums.

Let's explore why BIOEFFECT is your perfect winter skincare companion.

The winter skincare routine your skin craves.

Transitioning to a winter skincare routine is crucial, especially if you're planning a holiday in a frosty locale or if you simply live in one! Here’s a step-by-step guide to revamping your regimen for those cold winter days when your skin is craving deep and long-lasting hydration.

Step 1: The EGF Power Serum.

Begin your morning and evening routine with the EGF Power Serum. Rich with biotech growth factors, this serum penetrates deeply to help decrease fine lines, promote skin firmness, and offer intensive hydration. Apply 2-4 drops to clean skin and gently massage it in, allowing the serum to work its magic at the cellular level.

Step 2: Imprinting Facial Mask.

For a touch of pampering, the Imprinting Mask is a must. This hydrogel mask is an intense hydration boost, soothing skin that has been exposed to extreme cold or wind.

Use it on a Sunday evening to prepare your skin for the week ahead, or indulge in one after a particularly chilly day, to give your skin the nurturing it deserves.

Step 3: The EGF Power Cream.

Follow your serum with the EGF Power Cream. This velvety yet deeply nourishing cream provides a protective barrier against harsh winter conditions. With Hyaluronic Acid to retain moisture, it acts as the perfect seal to your serum’s benefits, locking in all that rich hydration.

Find What Works for You.

The EGF Power Serum and EGF Power Cream are both powerful products on their own, but when used together they create a dynamic duo that can tackle any winter skin concerns. The serum provides deep hydration and anti-aging benefits, while the EGF Power Cream also provides powerful age defying effects while it also seals in moisture and protects against harsh weather conditions.

However, we also understand that every skin is different and may have varying needs during different seasons. That's why we recommend experimenting with both products together and separately to find the perfect routine for your unique skin at any given time. Some may find that their skin needs more hydration over the colder months and benefit from using both products together. While others may only need one or the other over the warmer months.

Your skin is unique, and your skincare routine should cater to its individual needs.

Additional Tips for Winter Skincare:

  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water
  • Protect your skin with SPF even in cold weather
  • Avoid hot showers, which can strip the skin of its natural oils
  • Moisturize regularly, especially after being exposed to harsh weather conditions
  • Wear protective layers and cover exposed skin when outside in cold weather
  • Exfoliate once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells and promote cell turnover

Don't Forget About Your Lips and Hands.

When it comes to winter skincare, we often focus on our face, but don’t neglect your lips and hands! The skin on our lips is thinner and more delicate than the rest of our body, making it prone to cracking and dryness in the cold weather. Keep them protected and hydrated with our nourishing Lip Balm, and don't be afraid to reapply throughout the day. Similarly, our hands are exposed to the elements more than any other part of our body, so keep them moisturized with the EGF Hand Serum.

Pro tip: apply the EGF Hand Serum generously before going to bed to let the growth factor serum work their magic.
