I hope everyone’s holidays are going well! I had a great Christmas and am looking forward to New Year’s!
In Kansas City, it is cold and dry, so my skin has been needing extra love. The below hydrating skincare has kept my skin looking good through the elements and holiday stress:
Finally a cocoa that does the body good! HydroPeptide’s Firming Moisturizer ($96, HydroPeptide.com) addresses and corrects the appearance of imperfections including scars, discoloration, stretch marks and wrinkles. The formula features anti-cellulite peptides and caffeine to effectively diminish the appearance of cellulite, while ultra-nourishing cocoa butter hydrates, replenishes and rejuvenates to lock in smooth, dimple-free skin so you can eat all the chocolatey treats your heart desires!
Don’t let the holidays put wrinkles on your face – HydroPeptide’s Power Lift Advanced Ultra-Rich Moisturizer ($96, HydroPeptide.com) targets all visible signs of aging and quenches dry skin with a proprietary blend of peptides, antioxidants and skin brighteners. Sage extract, promotes daily cell regeneration to minimize and delay the onset of facial wrinkles, while powerful antioxidants such as buddleja, echinacea, white tea, and rosemary offer free-radical defense and encourage more youthful looking skin.
Beyond the baking sheet and into your skin care regime. HydroPeptide’s Power Serum ($136, HydroPeptide.com) boasts Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract (vanilla) to prevent and reverse skin damage caused by free radicals and slow down signs of ageing including fine lines, wrinkles and age spots. In suppressing free radicals, this seasonal staple plays double duty by allowing growth factor activating plant extract from the Crocus Chrysanthus Bulb, to promote and strengthen connective tissue to increase skin firmness and elasticity without interference.
