Give Your Skin the Boost it Needs This Winter

The weather during Winter months does more than give your skin a rosy glow. Often, it brings dryness along with it. Below are three brands we love that can restore, renew and give your skin the boost it needs this winter.

Volition’s Oceanene Youth-Boost Gel

For centuries, many women have turned to algae for health and beauty rituals. That idea is behind Volition’s Oceanene Youth-Boost Gel product.


The product uses a small brown algae found along the seashores of Brittany, a province in France. As the algae remains semi-emerged from the ocean, it has significant resistance to drying, temperature and salinity. That is the pinnacle for skin benefiting properties. It is during Spring’s full bloom that the molecular bioactives are harvested. That active infuses the product and protects skin from free radical damage and also aids collagen and hyaluronic acid synthesis and helps with intense hydration and smoother, younger looking skin.

As a matter of fact, Volition Beauty’s innovator once asked the question: “What if my mom’s beauty cream could be reinvented in a featherweight gel?” The result of that question is now a universal alternative to traditional, heavy anti-aging creams for all women in their 20s to 50s.

Also, the gel is vegan, hypoallergenic, without gluten, and is cruelty-free. The lightweight, quick-absorbing moisturizer is also the farthest thing from being overly perfumed or greasy.

Skinerals Organic Skin Science

If an organic skin solution to get your skin back to what you were born with is what you seek, check out Skinerals. The company believes that mother earth holds all of the ingredients to mend what ails us.”

The team has dedicated its study and focus to relieving people of the burdens of skin irritation. The company is also passionate about products that also are safe and effective.

My favorite product is the Exfoliating Scrub, which contains crushed walnut shells that will gently remove dry and dead skin. The Hydroquartz Facial Moisturizer is also ideal for the treatment of dry, scaly or rough skin. And designed for all skin types, the Skinerals Platinum Pineapple Facial Masque exfoliates, hydrates and refreshes the skin.

No7 Restore & Renew Face & Neck Serum

No7 recently celebrated 10 years of ground-breaking skincare with the launch of Restore & Renew. The brands first multi action serum made news headlines worldwide after being independently proven to improve the appearance of wrinkles. Since then, No7 has continued to develop ground-breaking products to meet the anti-aging needs of women across the world.

With a decade of clinical testing, insights and product development under their belt, the brand recently introduced Restore & Renew Face & Neck Multi Action Serum. The product is the latest anti-aging innovation, which addresses the needs of both the face and neck.


On top of the protein-strengthening ingredient found in No7’s existing serum ranges, the new Restore & Renew serum has an extra complex to help boost epidermal strength.

No7 conducted a controlled clinical study on 100 women of multiple ethnicities. The results found that a majority of women achieved all five clinically proven results: the face felt firmer, with wrinkles visibly reduced and skin tone more even, and the neck felt firmer and looked visibly smoother.
