Bees have one job during winter – keep the Queen Bee warm by forming a cluster inside the hive. You can rest assured that Burt’s Bees is going to protect your skin from dry and cold weather too! We’ve formulated a series of products to keep your skin nourished and fresh. Burt’s Bees’ Intense Hydration Ritual helps you achieve the balance that defines healthy skin through three simple steps – Cleanse, Balance and Moisturize.
3 Steps From Nature:
Cleansing is the first and most essential step to healthy and beautiful skin. Dirt and oil have a bad habit of getting stuck with dead skin cells, so getting rid of all three will immediately give your skin a fresh look. Traditional cleansers use harsh soaps and surfactants to fight these impurities, and while they do the job, they also leave your skin uncomfortably dry!
When skin lives in balance, it shows in the form of radiance and vitality. When skincare products work in harmony with your skin’s own natural 4-week skin cycle, this keeps the turnover rate at a healthy pace – not too fast, not too slow – skin is in balance. True balanced skin means it’s also pH-balanced. Ideally, the skin should be slightly acidic with a pH-balance rate of approximately 5 to 5.5. Because when the skin is slightly acidic, it can retain lipids and moisture while protecting you from germs and pollutants. When skin pH is out of balance, the ability to resist bacteria and germs goes down. This means that the skin is more prone to a variety of irritations, blemishes, wrinkles and fine lines.
When skin is well-nourished with wholesome ingredients, it has the nutrients and moisture it needs to live beautifully just as good food is nutrition for the body. It’s important to keep the epidermis nourished with moisture and nutrients to help support a strong hydro-lipid barrier for a fresh look, while nurturing the development of epidermis cells with moisture and a healthy diet of some of nature’s most powerful ingredients.
