As summer draws to a close (although with the current and and off again heat, you could have fooled me), we reach the time of year when our skincare needs to be mixed up. Richer textures, nourishing ingredients and something to ensure our skin’s barrier stays happy.
I know that when winter (and the resultant dry weather) begins, the skin around my nose gets red, sensitive and SUPER dehydrated. I have to be careful when using strong actives. This happens to me with each seasonal change of climate, and often when I travel too. One top tip is sticking to a strict skincare regime – not always easy when you’re a beauty blogger, and test new products out constantly. So, I have to have a secret weapon – which I’ve found in SBR Repair Cream or LipoCream.
Both products are designed to help maintain and repair the skin’s barrier. The SBR Repair Cream (my personal favourite of the two) is formulated specially for very dry skin, and helps to replace lost moisture as well as repairs the skin. It’s a very thick, white cream that soothes and moisturises my skin instantly , and it helps repair the problem area as it does this. It also helps stop additional moisture loss, and my skin doesn’t feel as tight and irritated after application.
This product is FABULOUS for winter, for those with sensitive skin or for dry-skinned folks who travel via plane a lot. I always keep a tube in stock myself. As soon as my skin becomes irritated or tight around my nose and chin, I apply a small amount of this cream to the area – it doesn’t break me out at all, yet it soothes immediately. Within two or so days, my skin is back to normal!
The SBR LipoCream is specifically for fortifying the barrier of the skin, containing 70% lipids that help to prevent the barrier being compromised. This cream is ideal for chronic skin conditions such as eczema and should be applied three to four times daily.1,8i I found this was even better for irritation (it’s godsend if you suffer from shaving rash!) and is apparently good for eczema-prone skin. It’s kind of like a baby-bum cream, but for grown-ups!
