With winter season, my dry skin gets even drier, flaky, goes through lot of dehydration and compromised skin barrier issue. All this makes my skin super dull, tight and itchy. If you think that putting on face oil or a rich cream is going to help, then you’re wrong! There is much more beyond rich texture for a product to become that ultimate winter Holy Grail. Take a look at why I have been loving this Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Moist Cream for this winter season and you’ll know what I’m talking about!
RIGHT INGREDIENTS & TEXTURE
You must have used hydrating creams, which undoubtedly feels nice on application. However, during winter season, most skin types experience even more dryness after just a few hours of applying these hydrating creams. This is because these lightweight creams lack the skin nourishing ingredients to lock in the hydration. Therefore your skin experiences lot more transepidermal water loss in the cold and dry winter season.
Don’t want to layer oil or a richer cream after that hydrating product? Try the Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Moist Cream. It contains 5 different molecular sizes of Hyaluronic Acid for optimum hydration. Plus, the nourishing oils and butter in this cream lock in the hydration which prevents moisture loss from your skin. Additionally, with ceramide and cholesterol it protects your failing skin barrier effectively during the winter.
If you also have sensitive skin like me and you avoid essential oil or fragrance in your skincare, then this cream is again a perfect option. It is 100% fragrance free, essential oil free and denat Alcohol free.
The texture of the Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Moist Cream is just arrant; it’s rich, spreads like a dream and absorbs well without the tackiness, still maintaining the moisture and softness on skin.
THE CHANGES I NOTICED IN MY SKIN
With the weather-change in mid-October, my skin suddenly became very dry, stretchy and even a little dull. So I began switching to various brightening and hydrating serums, which didn’t seem to be working. My already dried out skin became even drier. So I added the face oils, but any face oil would just sit on top of my dry skin without getting absorbed. You see, face oils do not absorb well on completely dried out flaky skin; I realized this later.
This is when I switched my lightweight moisturizer to the Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Moist Cream. Then my skin started getting back to normal, looked less dull and felt more relaxed with each day of its usage. The stretchy feeling on skin was gone, the redness on my cheeks caused by the dry cold weather also reduced and of course my skin felt soft!
So if your skin is acting up or looking dull during the winter, first try changing your moisturizer before getting new brightening serums or intensive treatment! This is because without a good winter moisturizer, no serum will work on your skin.
With the Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Moist Cream in my routine, I can layer and use any toner or serum treatment, any exfoliator. This helps my skin barrier remain intact and I am able to reap all the benefits of various other products in my skincare routine. Hence this Isntree moisturizer is the ultimate Holy Grail product of my winter skincare.
I believe that anyone who has normal, dry or combination skin and need that non-irritating, skin barrier friendly moisturizer that hydrates, nourishes and prevent the skin redness that’s primarily caused by dryness, then the Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Moist Cream should be your pick. It’s a no nonsense product and has just the right formulation for this winter. I highly recommend it.
