It seems that the older I get the harder winter is on my skin. As I move from one heated environment to another, my skin seems to shrivel up right in front of my eyes!
It’s easy enough to slather my body with greasy concoctions, but I’m not willing to put those on my 50-something year old face. I’ve got enough issues with blackheads and acne thank you very much! So when the nightly temps recently started to drop, I set out to find a skin care line to save me from dry winter skin.
That’s when I discovered Lumene from Finland. Lumene was created over 40 years ago and is based on the philosophy and belief in the power of nature. What could be more perfect? Skin care from some of the most beautiful people in the World with a cold climate! But it gets better.
Lumene products are affordable and are available at Ulta! I will warn you that most of the products are ‘online only’, however, Ulta has a great return policy on the off chance that you don’t like what you’ve ordered.
Here are a few standouts of Lumene’s that will save your skin from even the driest of winter conditions!
If you’re looking for a light serum to add a little oomph to your current moisturizer try the Arctic Berry Cocktail Oil ($22). Rich in antioxidants and Arctic cloudberry seed oil, it is easily the favorite out of Lumene’s entire skin care line! Just a couple of drops applied to the skin either alone or under a moisturizer will make a huge difference in the feel and look of your skin.
Valo Day Moisturizer with SPF15 contains antioxidants and ‘light-reflecting pigment’ that gives skin a nice glow all day long. I’d love to see a higher SPF in this moisturizer to be better protected from harmful rays, but otherwise it’s great!
If you need serious overnight hydrating, try the Valo Overnight Bright Sleeping Cream ($20). It also contains the magical Arctic cloudberry seed and hyaluronic acid to moisturize even the most parched skin while you sleep.
Cleansing without drying your skin is another problem in the winter, but Lemene has that covered with its Lahde Micellar Cleansing Water ($8). It is strong enough to remove even the most stubborn makeup while leaving behind fresh clean skin.
I’d stock up now on Lumene’s skin care products at Ulta online, because we know winter is coming!
