WINTER skincare: the power of honey

from the editor: When the weather temperature shifts this quickly, I reach for the honey and nuts… After waking up one day last week with extremely dry skin, I searched through the cabinet for my go to oil.  Next to the ointments in the medicine cabinet, I found my magic bottle of Huile prodigieuse® , THE multi-purpose oil for dry skin that nourishes and repairs fast.

Did you wake up with super dry skin in the past few days? The cold weather transition can be tough on skin and hair, and supplementing the daily regimen with gentle soothing products can help soothe the skin and protect the glow for the upcoming holidays:

Here’s what I’m doing, using the power of honey and oil…

WINTER skincare: the power of honey! story by Brigitte Segura

1. I switched up my everyday face wash to a soothing honey based cleanser. Although it may be tempting to use (any) handy facial cleanser, then piling layers of moisturizier,  an important step in winter skincare regime is to go gentler… and wash with a mild cleanser that can soothe winter-sensitive skin with soothing power. Created for dry and sensitive skin, the delicious The nuxe Rêve de Miel® facial cleansing gel contains honey and sunflower to soothe and soften skin. Smells divine and about $22 (Thompson Chemists SoHo).

2. moisturize using the Day Cream Rêve de Miel which helps replenishes lipids, and soothes sensitive skin and repairs from climate conditions.

3. moisture boost: Mask it – DYI at home: mix a teaspoon of honey with the day cream Rêve de Miel, leave on for 5 minutes.

4. overnight:  I use the original Huile Prodigieuse® or switch it up to Huile Prodigieuse® Riche during the winter (a richer formula).  Both multi-purpose dry oils were created to use on dry skin for face and body as well as hair. I use it on my face, as well as my neck and shoulders for an all over veil of softness.

I tend to use the original formula from the French beauty co. more on my face, and the ‘riche’ formula on my body and hair, as needed. Both formulas contain Tsubaki oil. which acts an anti-oxidant and has a ‘shield’ effect against pollution. The cocktail of oils include Sweet Almond Oil, Camellia Oil, Borage Oil, Hazelnut Oil, refined Macadamia Oil, and Argan Oil.  The fresh fragranceis the perfect finish before bedtime.  If you are concerned about using oil directly on your face, add in a few drops to face or body cream for an added moisture boost.

5. the final touch: kissable lips thanks Nuxe: Rêve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm for Dry and Chapped Lips. The soothing formula contains honey, botanical oils and propolis, (a rare and precious bee hive ingredient) that immediately soothes dry and damaged lips. ($20).
