Why you may experience dryness around your nose and the corner of your eyes… and what to do about it!
Sometimes in the process of renewing your skin, as you wipe away dead cells and get down to fresher, newer more vibrant skin, you can experience what feels like a dryness around your eyes and nose. While this may seem like a bad thing, it’s actually not. In fact what has happened is that because you’ve successfully exfoliated away dead, flaky skin your skin is now more exposed to the elements. Those same dead cells that dull your skin also act as an odd sort of protective insulation. Winter temperatures, lack of humidity and the thinner” skin barrier allow for your skin to feel drier.
Because you are down to the “baby’s skin” – beautiful fresh skin that needs a little more TLC, you need to take a little more care of your skin. Cut back on cleansers and increase your use of moisturizers. By increasing your usage of moisturizers you’ll better protect your skin against the harsh winter temperatures.
Holiday travel presents some challenges for your skin -Dry airplane cabin air can dehydrate your skin and going from one climate to another can dramatically change the environmental exposure. With everything else that is going on, you don’t want to worry about how to keep looking your best! So here are some easy tips:
1. Be sure to stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water and avoid salty foods.
2. Make sure you are using a moisturizer such as NuGlow Daytime Moisturizer. If you normally use a moisturizer only at bedtime, try using it in the morning under your make-up as well for extra protection. In addition, on longer flights, moisturize before and during the flight and so your final make-up before landing (or leaving the airport). It’s a double bonus – your skin will be hydrated and your make-up will be fresh when you get to your destination.
3. Add a deep penetrating serum such as NuGlow Copper Peptide Serum with MD3 Copper as a first layer to give additional antioxidants and age-defying ingredients in a quick absorbing moisture surge and then add a layer of moisturizer to seal it in.
4. Static Guard – always a life saver in extra dry weather to keep your clothes cling-free!
5. Be sure to schedule a little extra time for yourself – an extra hour of sleep, a quiet cup of tea, a walk in the fall leaves – it helps keep stress down and you will feel and look relaxed!

NuGlow is proud to link our readers to BlogHer’s “Own Your Beauty” page. We are firm believers in the fact that everyone is beautiful, and that there is no one standard of beauty. We want to help spread the word that it is the individual beauty of each person’s face and mien that define what true beauty is.
Not Hollywood. Not magazines. Not marketing. Not ads.
None of those are about real people, our friends, neighbors, colleagues, sons, daughters, spouses, parents. . . . . all of those real people whose beauty is a combination of their individual faces, smiles, personalities, thoughts, personalities, and glimpses into their wonderful, unique souls.
NuGlow does not claim to change a person’s face. NuGlow just promises to make each person’s skin healthier, all the way through, and to give each person’s already-beautiful face a glow that enhances what was already there: true beauty.
