Annemarie Borlind: solving the problem of dry and dehydrated skin when transitioning between summer, fall and winter
The seasonal changes can be hard on skin. Compounding the problem is very dry indoor air with the heat turned on.
How can we properly moisturize our skin?
If your skin is not properly cleansed and prepped there is no point in using a good moisturizer since it will not be able to penetrate the skin properly and do its job.
This is true of all skin types; using a proper cleanser that does not leave the skin dry is the first step to having great skin.
To further help your skin achieve the proper pH balance you will need a good toner which works to restore pH balance, soothe, hydrate, calm, and moisturize the skin as well as preparing the skin for your moisturizer. A quality toner will help the moisturizer to absorb into the skin more deeply and quickly, allowing you to use less and save money.
This is the point when you can use a serum and eye cream for added anti-aging, hydrating or moisturizing benefits.
Now your skin is ready to be moisturized.
Choosing the correct moisturizer is important. For best results find an eco-certified and clinically proven brand at the health food store. Annemarie Borlind has a cleanser, toner and moisturizer for every skin type including sensitive!
Cleanse, tone and moisturize morning and at night, and your skin will look and feel great.
