BOULDER, Colo., Jan. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- When planning health, fitness, and beauty detoxification strategies for the New Year, don't overlook your daily skin care regimen. The average female routinely uses 12 skin care and beauty products before exiting the house daily*. Over time, too many products—especially conventional varieties loaded with potentially harmful ingredients—can impede the skin's ability to properly absorb, circulate, and properly metabolize them, leading to irritation and inflammation.
MyChelle Dermaceuticals, a leading Colorado-based skin care brand, recommends all skin types make a break from the bad and start fresh with a handful of powerful, bioactive products to help soothe, restore, and protect skin naturally. Using its 360-degree approach to beauty, MyChelle offers the following skin revival strategies and product recommendations to instantly improve the skin's overall health and appearance in the new year.
1. Keep it Simple
When making the change to clean, toxin-free skin care, start by paring down the number of products to the basic essentials. The new MyChelle Gentle Cleansing Wash ($16/4.2 fl. oz.) and Gentle Day Cream ($28/1.2 fl. oz.) are a fragrance-free duo formulated with the company's patented DermaCalm ComplexTM, a mild combination of Blue Daisy and French Oak Extract to effectively fortify, nourish, and restore moisture to even extremely sensitive skin. Begin by using the cleansing wash and cream daily along with an unscented physical sunscreen in the morning. If the products are well tolerated, slowly incorporate the following targeted treatments into a consistent, cold-weather routine.
2. Exfoliate to Illuminate
Gentle exfoliation 2-3 times per week is one of the most effective ways to prevent dryness and erase dullness. A multi-tasking exfoliator will effectively remove dead surface skin cells, make-up, and other impurities allowing serums and moisturizers to penetrate more effectively for a brighter, more balanced complexion.
3. Maximize Hydration
Indulge skin throughout the winter season with a restorative treatment mask to help replace moisture. Apply across the face, neck, and decolletage 2-3 times per week after cleansing and before layering serums to achieve a radiant, healthy glow.
4. Optimize Skin Health
When winter skin conditions are at their worst, the addition of a facial serum—or two—can revitalize sallow, undernourished dry skin. These highly concentrated formulas penetrate deep into the skin to deliver potent ingredients. Serums can be mixed, matched, and layered 60-90 seconds apart for more dramatic, lasting results.
5. Rejuvenate Overnight
When a full night of sleep isn't possible, skin requires additional relief to activate the repair and renewal process that restores hydration and eliminates toxins. Without, the resulting moisture imbalance reveals itself in the form of puffy eyes, dark circles, and more prominent fine lines and wrinkles.
6. Target the Eyes
If skin is generally dry during the winter months, chances are the delicate under eye skin also is dehydrated. Because extreme dryness exacerbates early signs of aging, a targeted eye treatment is recommended day, night, and anytime in between.
