Cold autumn and winter weather can wreak havoc on the skin, sapping it of moisture and leaving it dry, chapped, and feeling tight. The skin can even get so dry that it results in cracking and flaking.

Agein.com, the Internet’s premier anti-aging web site focusing on anti-aging tips, news, and advice from some of the foremost experts in the industry, is releasing its top tips for keeping skin moisturized during the harsh winter months.
"Cold autumn and winter weather can wreak havoc on the skin, sapping it of moisture and leaving it dry, chapped, and feeling tight. The skin can even get so dry that it results in cracking and flaking," says Dr. Kevin J. McLaughlin, Agein.com’s anti-aging specialist. "Being indoors can be just as damaging to the skin as being outdoors in the harsh elements; as soon as the heat is turned on, the skin dries out even further. Whether one is indoors or outdoors, following a regular winter skin care regimen can keep skin healthy and moisturized all winter long."
While there are an endless number of products to consider, he notes, it’s important to find one that has been developed using the most advanced, effective ingredients—one that is safe, gentle, and formulated to replenish natural moisture and deliver dramatic, age-defying results. It’s also important to remember that some ingredients are better than others at keeping the elements out and moisture in.
"Numerous clinical studies have shown that skin treated with Alpine rose stem cell technology is better able to resist harsh cold and the hot sun," Dr. McLaughlin adds. "It can protect skin against humidity and dryness and improve the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. At the end of one study, 54% of participants experienced a more radiant complexion, and 50% saw less irritation and a better skin tone."

Matrixyl 3000 is a cutting-edge peptide, or protein fragment, that targets the thin, delicate skin and fine lines around the eyes and mouth. Matrixyl 3000 has been shown to stimulate the production of collagen from within the skin, reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles, and improve skin tone. In a recent study, Matrixyl 3000 was shown to refine skin roughness by 14%, improve skin smoothness and tone by 15%, and reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles by 45%.

Argireline is a peptide that works specifically on expression wrinkles. According to an independent study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science, Argireline reduced the look of wrinkles by 32% after just 28 days. (Sources: "Argireline," Botanical-Link.com, 2003; http://www.botanical-link.com/Argireline.pdf; Blanes-Mira, C., et al., "A synthetic hexapeptide (Argireline) with antiwrinkle activity," International Journal of Cosmetic Science, 2002.24, 303–310; http://www.biologicsolutions.com/content/179632/clinicalstudy.pdf; "The First Peptide for Expression Wrinkles," Nature’s Beauty Cosmetics web site; http://www.naturesbeautycosmetics.com/studies/argireline.pdf, last accessed December 10, 2013.)
"Once you find a product that contains all three of these ingredients, it’s important to moisturize your skin from head to toe daily. One of the best times to moisturize is a few minutes after showering or taking a bath, so the damp skin can take advantage of that moisture," McLaughlin concludes. "On top of that, moisturize your face twice a day. If you don’t normally apply a daily moisturizer, now is the perfect time to start."
