Quench Your Skin This Winter with Murad!

It’s no secret that winter is rough on your skin. It’s important (especially during the winter months) to look for products that include antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and hydrators to support and enhance the skin’s barrier function and protect cells from environmental damage and dehydration. And let’s not forget to use sunscreen in the colder months – the sun is just as harmful as in the summer!

Luckily, Murad has an army of super hydrating and protective topical solutions that will leave your skin quenched and hydrated during those harsh months that seem to never end:

 

I love this mask it goes on a little unassuming it resembles a regular face cream. Its easy to apply and there is absolutely zero irritation. The best part is how much firmer and refreshed my skin looks after using this. I use it on my face and neck and love how much firmer my skin has become.

Age-Diffusing Firming Mask is a rich, at-home skin firming booster that targets dull, dry, lackluster skin by delivering essential moisture. This formula enhances skin elasticity and promotes instant firming to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while helping to improve overall skin health.

Murad’s Hydro-Dynamic Moisture cream is pure decadence. My sensitive, combo skin can freak out in the winter with the cold,dry air it seems to have multiple personalities. I have been using this every night and I don’t have any problems with dryness and it doesn’t clog my skin. Finally an intense moisturizing product that doesn’t make me breakout and leaves my skin looking and feeling smoother and hydrated.

Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture is an uber-rich, skin-quenching formula that instantly relieves dry, dehydrated skin while locking in optimal moisture levels for 8 hours to restore youthful resilience and tone. Avocado, Sunflower and Olive Fruit Oils enhance skin’s ability to retain maximum levels of hydration.

This is on the spendy side but a tiny bit of product goes a long way. On top of protecting my skin from potential sun damage it leaves my face so soft and works as a great base before makeup. I love how great my skin feels after using Essential C.

Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA +++ protects skin from harmful UVA/UVB rays while powerful antioxidants fortify skin to make it more resistant to free radical damage. Murad’s patented Skin Repair System helps reverse existing environmental damage while Vitamin C encourages collagen synthesis and improves clarity. Emollient conditioners leave skin healthy and hydrated.
