With Anna Mitsios, Naturopath, Nutritionist, and Founder of Edible Beauty Australia
The brisk winter air mixed with dry indoor heating can have a merciless effect on your skin, drawing out the moisture, leaving it dry and irritated. It’s important during the winter months to refresh your skincare routine, to be able to soothe and support your complexion. Here, I share with you three topical treatments to add to your Winter skincare routine, and the best ingredients to look out for.
A serum can bring some much-needed rejuvenation back into your skin when winter leaves it looking dull. Serums act to penetrate the skin forming the perfect base to any makeup routine, and can even be used as a barrier of protection against the harsh winter air.
When shopping for a serum the beauty market may feel a little oversaturated, however don’t let this discourage you! You want to look for ingredients like Vitamin C to brighten the skin, and Hyaluronic acid to boost hydration.
You’ll find these winter must-haves in Edible Beauty’s Exotic Goddess Ageless Serum.
A face oil is an essential step to any routine this winter, bringing a nourishing boost to your skin. Face oils act to rejuvenate the skin, and lock in that moisture to keep you glowing all year round.
When looking for a face oil you want to find one that is 100% organic, due to the added irritation and sensitivity your skin is prone to during the cooler months. Ingredients like Jojoba and Snowflower Seed Oil combat this, as they are ultra-hydrating whilst containing anti-inflammatory properties to reduce redness.
You’ll find these properties in Edible Beauty’s & Snowflower Illuminating Face Oil.
Face Masks whilst being extremely soothing to the skin, can also bring a much-needed dose of glamour and ‘me time’ on the dullest of winter nights.
Often overlooked as more of a novel activity, choosing the right face mask can be the difference in allowing your skin to reach its full, dewy potential. You want to look for ingredients like ribose which boost skin-cell renewal, and hyaluronic acid to pack a hydrating rush.
You’ll find these ingredients in Edible Beauty’s Bloom of Youth Infusion Face Mask.
Now that you’ve got the low down on winter beauty must-haves, it’s time to get shopping!
ABOUT ANNA MITSIOS
Being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 18 marked a real turning point in Anna’s life. She began to search for natural solutions – nutrition and herbal remedies – to help manage the autoimmune condition. While working in corporate finance in Sydney and New York, Anna also took up studies in naturopathy; a step towards making her passion her career.
Working as a naturopath in a Sydney fertility clinic, I was fed up with the lack of skincare that was safe and clean, especially for pregnant women. So, in 2014 I created a range of products – using Australian botanicals and luxury ingredients – that is so pure you could eat it.
After hours of research, cosmetic chemist meetings, more study, and formulating samples, Edible Beauty was born in Anna’s garage! From 2014 she was stocking the shelves at Sephora Pitt Street, when the store first opened, and within two months Edible Beauty was being sold internationally.
