Topical Skincare for Winter | Nicole Contos Insider Tips
Jack Frost nipping at your nose? My staff has put together a few of their favorite things from the NC Signature Skincare Collection to weather winter’s chill:
To Hydrate Dry Skin
Michele, Esthetician, recommends:
Swapping out your moisturizer for colder months. The NC Ultra-Rich Moisturizer is a thick, emollient-rich cream with peptides that are super hydrating, as well as squalene that provides protection from the elements. It’s also not heavy and absorbs nicely into the skin.
For Acne-Prone Skin
Polina, Spa Coordinator, thinks:
The NC Calming Serum is great for this time of year. I need a product that tackles acne. However, my skin also dries out during the winter. Unlike other products on the shelves that help with acne, this product is great at both clearing my skin and leaving it dewy and fresh. That’s a winning combo for winter.
To Protect the Skin from the Elements
Maureen, Spa Coordinator, says:
I’m an active, outdoors person. In winter, that can really take a toll on my skin. Whether it’s for hiking, skiing or just walking around the city, I need a product that combats windbur and protects my skin from the cold air outside. The NC Hydrating Serum does the trick and is my go-to for winter.
To Exfoliate Winter Build-up
Marina, Esthetician, says:
Enemy #1 during the winter is dull, ashy skin. It’s just a fact that skin doesn’t turnover as quickly when the humidity drops. The answer is NC Brightening Polish. It’s gentle enough to maintain moisture levels essential for drier weather. But it’s also highly effective at exfoliating the build-up that happens in winter.
