Is Your Skincare Routine Climate-Smart?
If you live in a polar climate, like Colorado- such as myself, then you might still be seeing snow around :0 Polar climates usually boast low humidity averages of between 4-45% and average low temperatures of 20-45 degrees F. With often-harsh winters that include snow, frequent cloud cover, weak or little sunlight, winds that can be regularly high, and freezing air. Due to these conditions and a short summer season, your skin can lose up to 25% of its ability to retain moisture in polar climates. To make matters worse, the super dry air can rob additional moisture from your skin, leaving it looking dry, dull, aged, and lifeless.
Because indoor heating is needed during a large portion of the year, your skin can further be robbed of moisture. Luckily, there are brand and products out there that focus on these and other unique climate-specific needs to skin. This climate-smart approach to skincare can aid in providing a regular skincare regimen that provides balance and leads to healthier and even younger-looking skin! One brand that I have come across lately, is Pour Moi. This French skincare company focuses on this climate-smart approach to skincare and has created 4 day creams based upon the 4 major climates present here on Earth: Polar, Tropical, Desert, & Temperate.

Polar Climate Day Cream
Since the move to Colorado, the entire family has been struggling with dried, cracked, and just all-around stressed skin. The super dry climate in comparison to the hot, damp, and humid one of the past has been a challenge for all of us. As my skin tend to struggle with break-outs and is also super sensitive, it's been even more of a struggle in general when it comes to my skin lately :( I noticed almost an immediate turn-around after using this product after only a couple of days and I now use it daily :) It only takes 2-3 pumps of the dispenser to get out all of the product I need and I apply it to newly cleansed skin on my entire face and neck daily- before applying my makeup and getting ready for the day.
The product absorbs easily and quickly into the skin and doesn't smell yucky or leave an unwanted residue behind either! Comes nicely boxed and in a portable pump dispenser that features a simple yet classic design. Contains Squalane oil and Shea butter that aids the skin and boosting its own natural barrier to seal in moisture and protect the skin from harsh winds, frost, and cold temperatures. Water-based hydrators also helps in preventing your skin's lipid barrier from producing excess oil, which means it ends up balanced and healthy! If you have acne-prone or break-out prone skin, then this is also a great day cream for you as well :)
Peptides and botanicals- like White Truffle, improves the signs of aging- like fine lines, wrinkles, and dull skin. I've not only noticed a marked improvement in my skin health, but it's more luminous, smooth, hydrated, and fine lines have even been improved as well! I highly recommend this day cream for those with: sensitive & aging skin- plus those who live in Polar or a similar type of climate. Moderately priced too, so you won't dig too deep into your wallet to snag a quality day cream!
