According to Pour Moi, your skin problems aren't due to your skin type, ethnicity, age, or diet. Those problems are primarily caused by the climate in which you live!

Are holiday sweets REALLY messing with your skin?

"Go ahead and have that extra piece of warm pecan pie with homemade vanilla bean ice cream," says skincare guru Ulli Haslacher. During your younger years, you may have experienced acne or other skin-related blemishes when eating a diet high in sugar. Even as you've aged, you may still look in the mirror and notice similar skin problems after eating certain foods regularly. It's tempting to connect your skin issues to the food you eat. After all, you can stop eating the harmful foods and see immediate results in your skin's health, right?

Wrong! An acne flare-up might be more likely to happen if you eat a diet high in sugar and carbohydrates, and your skin might absorb some of the grease in oily environments. However, the age marks you're seeing aren't because of the extra chocolate you eat during the holidays. According to revolutionary skincare company Pour Moi, you can blame the climate where you live.

Pour Moi created the first and only Climate-Smart Skincare line in the world because medical research has shown that location matters far more than skin type, ethnicity, or age when it comes to skin care routines.

In marine climates like the Pacific Northwest, sunlight gets magnified by the overcast skies and is reflected off of the surrounding bodies of water. The humidity is also generally higher in marine climates than in dry climates, which encourages sweat that gets trapped in pores. Pour Moi realized that the unique Pacific Northwest climate required a specific routine to refresh and protect the skin of the people who live there. Try the "Seattle" routine here.

Of course, there are other climates in the world that have their own characteristics. Pour Moi offers day creams for each one, as well as a night cream that's suited specifically for the evening climate. You can buy these creams individually based on your needs, or you can combine them into a three-step system to help you form a daily routine.

With the holidays right around the corner, now is the perfect time to bundle up, with clothing and at Pour Moi! Right now, you can get a five-piece gift set designed for the marine climate. It includes a clarifying polish, full-size marine day cream, half-size temperate day cream, marine moisture-burst mask, and a metallic puffer bag. The set comes in a gift box with no logo, so it's re-usable for whatever you want. Ring in the holidays with healthy skin, and spread the cheer to those you love by giving them the gift of healthy skin too.

The origin of Pour Moi

Pour Moi's skin care methods were formed when founder Ulli Haslacher observed her father's work as an outdoor powder coating painter. She realized the paint would perform differently based on the different climates and discovered it was because the climate was affecting the surface underneath the paint. Haslacher applied that concept to skin care, leading to the groundbreaking skincare products you can now enjoy. Her method has been awarded TIME Magazine's 100 Best Inventions of 2020 in the beauty category!

Of course, it's still important to eat sugary, unhealthy foods in moderation to prevent other diseases, but at least those foods aren't your biggest enemy when it comes to skin care. Go ahead and grab another slice of pie, and load up your plate with turkey and mashed potatoes. It's time to celebrate, so you can afford a cheat day. Just make sure to keep up with your Pour Moi skin care regimen before and after you eat!
