Your Best Defense Against Winter




Winter is a cruel time of year and Chicago has to be one of the cruelest cities because of the wind and the cold. They don’t call it the “Windy City” for nothing. Wind blowing off of Lake Michigan makes the skin age faster and takes the elasticity away. It also makes the face redder than usual. For those of us that suffer from rosacea, it can really be cruel. The cold wind blows and dries it out even more.

Elan Rose has two products that help in the defense of winter’s fury, Hello Sunshine and Wake Up Beautiful. Combined these products can help maintain that youthful glow as well as improve the skin’s texture and elasticity. This does wonders for a woman’s self esteem and contributes to feeling good. The best part is that it really doesn’t take that long to see a difference. They claim it would only take three days and they were right. My skin actually felt softer and it wasn’t as red as usual. Wrinkles also weren’t as visible either. My skin actually was glowing and for that to happen in the dead of winter is a miracle. The products also boast they are filled with good things like vitamins B and E and contain no fragrances or silicones. Now winter doesn’t have to hurt so much.

I love the way that the products make my skin feel. Anyone who knows me knows that one of the things that I have worked the most on is my skin. As a teen and college girl, it wasn’t the most attractive thing I had. My parents sent me to a dermatologist and the medicine they used on me has allowed me to maintain a young look which is essential for the profession I have chosen. I can actually go out without any makeup and can let my skin breathe.
