OSEA Founder Favorites: Jenefer Palmer’s Routine for Glowing Winter Skin
Glowy skin tends to sign off in the winter. We asked OSEA founder, and OG skincare guru, Jenefer Palmer to reveal her tried-and-true tips to glow on through the chilly months. Read on for her secrets for plump, radiant and ageless skin, all season long.
Cleanse and Tone
I start my routine with a daily cleanse. In winter, I reach for our nourishing Ocean Cleansing Milk. This gentle cleanser sweeps away daily grime while Gigartina Seaweed hydrates and makes my skin feel super soft. Plus it contains two types of botanical oils, so it doesn’t strip skin of essential moisture. Next, I mist my face with Sea Vitamin Boost. This superfood toner with antioxidant-rich pomegranate, seaweeds and vitamin C is the exact nourishment my skin needs.
Use a Hyaluronic Serum
I love formulating with Hyaluronic Acid. It’s an amazing humectant that floods my skin with hydration. I slather on a generous dose of Hyaluronic Sea Serum daily. It’s a blend of three molecular weights of Hyaluronic Acid plus three nutrient-rich seaweeds. I’m obsessed with how this serum plumps and smooths the look of my complexion. When I have time, I’ll give myself a gentle facial massage, working the serum into my face while slowly inhaling “calm” and exhaling “stress”.
Double Down on Moisture
In the winter I use both Essential Hydrating Oil and our ultra-rich Advanced Protection Cream to boost my moisture barrier. It’s all about your moisture barrier! While we don’t have freezing temps in L.A., indoor heating and the desert climate is hard on anyone’s skin. I createdEssential Hydrating Oil over 30 years ago and it’s still my favorite “child.” I use it every single day. It’s a really nourishing blend of Jojoba, Macadamia and eight other oils that absorbs quickly and gives you the most insane glow. I like to layer on my facial oil first, followed by my moisturizer to seal in hydration. Advanced Protection Cream is basically like a cushiony cloud of moisture for your face. Once you try this Squalane powered anti-aging cream, it’s seriously hard to go back to using anything else!
Try a Dedicated Eye Cream
Yes, you need an eye cream. Especially in winter to shield against the elements. Now, that I’m in my 60s, it’s become obvious that the skin around my peepers needs some extra TLC. Enter Firming Eye Cream. I formulated our eye cream with Gigartina Seaweed and an amino acid compound called DPHP that firms and plumps the look of skin. Bonus: my daughter says it makes me look bright-eyed even when I’ve skimped on sleep. AND anytime you get a compliment, that’s a bonus!
Baby Your Body
I’m going to be honest: I created Anti-Aging Body Balm...for myself! This is my go-to product for dry skin. It’s packed with rich emollients like Coconut, Acai and Babassu oils. This balm goes on like a lotion and melts in like an oil leaving my skin, soft, smooth and glowing. I like to apply in the evenings after bathing. The Geranium and Jasmine scent helps me unwind before I drift off to dreamland.
