The cold, dry air has hit North Texas and that means it’s time to step up your skin care routine. While a regular moisturizer may have provided just the right amount of hydration you needed in the spring/summer, you need to step up your skin care game in the winter. After cleansing, it’s important to add the extra step of applying a serum before your moisturizer. A serum penetrates the layers of the skin deeper than a topical moisturizer can. There are lots of great serums available but one of my favorites is by fresh. The beauty brand’s new Black Tea Age-Delay Firming Serum ($98) is packed with a proprietary complex of black tea ferment, black tea extract, blackberry leaf extract and lychee seed extract to help improve skin elasticity. Peptides firm the skin and smooth fine lines and wrinkles while Honeysuckle leaf extract soothes the skin. Apply the serum to your skin and neck daily. Follow with fresh’s Black Tea Age-Delay Cream ($90) and watch your skin glow despite the frigid temperatures.
