New year, younger skin with climate-specific skin care

Many New Year's resolutions that people make are centered around diets BUT what have you done for your complexion lately?. Proper skin care may not be the one that comes to mind immediately, but taking care of your skin and maintaining its youthful glow should be a priority. This time of year your skin suffers damage from our weather, showers, exercise, and more. Not to mention that the products you may be using could do more harm than good!

If you don't focus on restoring your skin from the daily damage it endures, the aging process will only accelerate, making it more vulnerable in the future.

But what is the best way to take care of your skin? There are a ridiculous number of products, philosophies, and routines that can confuse skin care beginners. Pour Moi's Climate-Smart philosophy simplifies the process as much as possible to allow you to focus on maintaining healthy, youthful skin. Backed by medical science, astounding before-and-after pictures and independent studies conducted in different climates around the world, Pour Moi's belief is that skin type, ethnicity, and age are not nearly as impactful on your skin as climate. That's right, if the skincare you are currently using was not formulated to pair with your local weather, it's obsolete. Climate-Smart knows how skin works.

In marine climates like the Pacific Northwest, the combination of below-average temperatures and above-average humidity can block your pores while also telling your body to decrease its natural oil production. The result is skin that feels both greasy and dry. Cloud cover and adjacent bodies of water are also common, which means your skin is susceptible to harmful sun rays that are magnified by the clouds and reflected by the water.

The marine climate zone is one of six identified by Pour Moi (temperate, polar, desert, tropical, and mountain are the others). Each one has its own day cream for treatment in your specific climate. The evening also has a unique climate, so there's a special night cream you can use before bed.

In addition to their climate-specific day creams, Pour Moi also offers a patented, award winning signature three-step system that centers around four different products. (You receive 2 DIFFERENT iconic day creams since weather fluctuates) If you are not sure WHICH cream to use, Pour Moi has a genious, innovative cream finder on each day cream cap. Just scan the QR code with your i-phone and it will instantly tell you which cream to select and the local weather. No guesswork. As you may have guessed, the same three-step system doesn't apply to everybody. It's customized based on the region where you live.

Step 1: QUENCH your skin with a liquid hydrator.

Step 2: DRENCH your skin with a smart serum.

Step 3: ROTATE between two different day creams to lock in the anti-aging ingredients. The rotation is easy and designed to match the local forecast for the day. Mountain and high desert climate rotations will instruct you to rotate based on elevation.

Pour Moi offers a specially formulated Youth Burst kit that features the three-step rotating system for the Pacific Northwest plus a Marine Moisture Burst Mask and re-usable Roundies. The mask hydrates your skin and acclimates it to the cool, humid conditions here in the northwest. The Roundies save you time and money because you can continually clean off makeup and other skin products without throwing them away like normal cotton wipes.

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!
