Ditch dry, dull winter skin with our user-friendly guide to achieving hydrated, glowing skin during the cooler months. 

BOOST LAB Hydro Boost serum

Feeling like your skin isn’t looking its best lately? Thanks to being exposed to cool, dry temperatures when we’re outdoors and heating when we’re indoors, our complexions can get a little dry, cranky and even irritated. To say the cooler months aren’t easy on the skin would be an understatement… 

But, never fear! Today we’re stepping up to the plate with our tell-all guide to keeping your skin hydrated and glowing all winter long.

Tip 1: Add extra hydrating skincare products to your routine

To avoid dry, flaky winter skin, our first port-of-call is adding loads of extra moisture. Look for ingredients with hyaluronic acid to really dial up the hydration levels. 

The best hydrating serum to try: BOOST LAB 2D-Hyaluronic Hydro Boost Serum. With two different types of hyaluronic acid that deeply penetrate the skin, this serum is a Godsend for dehydrated skin. It’s also dermatologically tested, oil-free and ideal for all skin types - including sensitive. Tick, tick, tick!

Tip 2: Add retinol to renew your complexion

If your skin is looking flaky or scaly, take it as your sign to start using retinol. Known as ‘the gold standard’ for anti-ageing and skin renewal, retinol is an incredibly effective ingredient for beating winter skin. It’s also an absolute game-changer for treating acne and pigmentation, too.

The best retinol serum to try: BOOST LAB Retinol Night Renewal Serum. Some skin types can find retinol irritating but this serum is formulated with soothing aloe vera and bisabolol - making it an excellent option even for those with sensitive complexions. 

Tip 3: Brighten up your complexion with a vitamin C serum

Once you’ve sorted out your hydration and exfoliation steps, it’s time to get some glow back into your face – YAY! One of the greatest ingredients to use for skin-brightening is vitamin C due to its antioxidant-rich properties. It also helps to renew the skin and promote cell turnover.

The best vitamin C serum to try: BOOST LAB Vitamin C Brightening Serum. When it comes to achieving more radiant skin, this serum really has it all. Formulated with vitamin C alongside vitamin B3 (niacinamide) & Vitamin E, it’s been shown to deliver results within just 28 days. Impressive!
