Winter Serums: a staple in any skincare

winter serums
Not to nag like old Aunt Hilda but if you haven't added a serum this Winter to your skincare you should. No need to go out and purchase a whole new skincare regime, stick with what works for you. However, with the change of household heat and outdoor cold temperatures constantly drying your skin a serum is a great added product. Finding the one suitable for your skintype is easy. Today's formulations range from watery to gel serums that are easy to apply and beneficial.

Boscia Restorative Night Treatment
Normal to dry skintypes will benefit from this nightly treatment. As all Boscia products preservative-free! Contains: Amino Acid Derivatives, Encapsulated Vitamin A, Rice Bran Oil, Marine Complex, Jojoba Leaf, Willowherb. Easy to apply as it,s a watery serum, penetrates easily and no scent. Apply before your regular nighttime moisturizer.
retails $48 cdn

SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel
An old staple in my skincare regime: the little bottle will last forever! A hydrating gel serum that is easy to apply in a dropper style applicator. Just a couple drops for the whole face. Contains Vitamin B5 which aids in tissue repair and hyaluronic acid which attracts and binds water to the skin. Keeping skin subtle and plump. retails $70 US

Biotherm Aquasource Nuit High Density Hydrating Jelly
All skintypes will benefit from this gel-jelly serum; non-oily, applies beautifully, and really hydrates. Apply before your regular moisturizer or for oilier skintypes alone. The only con is not a fan of the scent, smells masculine to me but I love the way my skin looks in the morning therefore will continue to use. retails $48 cdn

Consonant Body HydrExtreme
The newest serum on the block is this all natural serum; Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide, Vegetable Glycerine. Three ingredients!! Super hydrating and great for sensitive skintypes. The boys will like this one too! retails $72cdn  for 10ml
