This winter has done so much to my skin. Between dealing with the stress of distance learning….still….and the strange weather we have been experiencing here, my skin is stressed, confused, tired and drier than usual. Oh, and I’m in my final year of my 30’s, so there’s that too. This is why I put together some tips for keeping your skin firm and hydrated.

Thankfully I have DERMA-E to bring me the best of the best products to bring my skin back to how it should be.

Tips for Keeping Your Skin Firm and Hydrated

1. Wash Your Face!

I cannot emphasize this enough! Get that makeup off before bed and refresh your skin when you wake up! But stay away from the harsh chemicals. I love DERMA E’s Hydrating Facial Alkaline Cloud Cleanser because it is gentle and deeply hydrating. It also removes makeup, impurities, and excess oil leaving my skin softer and healthier-looking.

2. Cleansing Pads

In addition to washing your face, using a toner or facial cleansing pad is also key to get that residual dirt out of your pores. The Ferulic Acid Resurfacing Pads from DERMA E work great to deeply cleanse while removing dead skin cells, revealing new skin cells over time.

3. Use A Good Serum

Serum should go on after washing your face, before your moisturizer and makeup. This is key to getting that extra tone lift. I love the Firming DMAE Serum from DERMA E because it is light and silky and also firming and helps support healthy texture and tone.

4. Eye Cream

The under eye is so sensitive, so selecting an all natural eye cream is extremely important. DERMA E’s Stem Cell Lifting Eye Treatment helps to visibly lift, firm and tighten the delicate eye area while smoothing those laugh lines.

5. Moisturize

I prefer a good, light moisturizer that also contains an SPF of at least 30. This way, I am not only staying moisturized, but I am protecting myself from the sun.

6. Facial Mist

I keep the Hydrating Mist in my purse and at my desk. I spritze my face whenever I need that invigorating boost. It awakens and refreshes my skin and is enriched with plant botanicals and nutrients to cool and restore my skin’s moisture levels.

7. Face Masks

I love a good face mask! But my favorite is one that I can wear overnight. This way I don’t have to remember to take it off in 15 mins and I can just wake up feeling refreshed and hydrated. DERMA E has an amazing Ultra Hydrating Alkaline Overnight Facial. This overnight moisturizer contains alkaline and hyaluronic acid to help me wake up feeling radiant! I apply it with the Mask Applicator and feel like I’m at the spa!

I hope you find these tips and products helpful during these cold and dry months. DERMA E products are available at Target, Sprouts, Whole Foods Market and at
