Besame - Delightful Rose

Delightful Rose Balance Moisturizing Lotion is from the Bésame line of face products. Packaged in a vintage style, easy dispensing tube, this cream is a blast from the past. Can’t you just picture a dame from the war era sitting at her deco dressing table smoothing this on her face and neck before bed? I can.
Delightful Rose contains as you might guess…rose extract, which is known for its skin soothing and aroma therapeutic benefits as well as aiding in exfoliation. This ingredient combined with natural botanical oils assist in promoting and maintaining soft, smooth, and youthful looking skin.

I am truly impressed by the bevy of oils, extracts and vitamins in this lotion. In addition, Delightful Rose is free of color additives, mineral oils and lanolin.

Save Face This Winter

I don't know about you, but the weather in British Columbia turned ugly recently. The temperature went down significantly and the wind and rain is taking a toll on my skin.

I have found that my skin which tends to be on the oily side is now feeling tight and is flaking a bit from a lack of moisture. It's time to battle the cold and save your skin! Here are some tips to maintain healthy skin this winter...

Drink up!
You know that you are supposed to drink approx 8 glasses of water a day. In the summer it's quite easy to stick to this but in the winter it tends to be forgotten or felt not as necessary. Skin tends to get dehydrated in the winter due to lack of water. Water will help you maintain a healthy, glowing skin.

Winter Facial
Start the new season with a facial. Starting with healthier, cleaner skin allows your winter skin-care routine to be more effective. See your aesthetician to disucss the best facial for you.

Its time for your to change your moisturizer. What you wear in the summer most likely will not be suitable for the winter. Go for a cream versus a lotion - cream does not need to mean greasy.

Dull, lacklustre skin is an unfortunate winter trademark. Caused by a buildup of dead skin regular exfoliation will give those dry, flaky cheeks a boost. Two to three times a week is a great way to ensure you're always showcasing your freshest, healthiest skin.

The sun's rays are always there, don't be fooled by the lack of sunshine and heat. Ensure that you apply your sunscreen everyday 30 mins before leaving home, to protect your skin.

Don't forget those lips. They need care and attention to stay smooth and soft when it's chilly outside. Keep your favourite lip balm close to you and apply often.

Take care this winter and look after yourself. Don't let Jack Frost cramp your style!
