10 Tips For Winter Skin

Winter can wreak havoc on your skin. Cold temperatures, indoor heating along with the loss of moisture in the air affect your skin. It often becomes dry, tight, red, flaky, cracked and sensitive.

Smooth, healthy, hydrated skin is possible as temperatures drop with a few minor adjustments to your skin care routine.

 

Here are our top 10 winter skin care tips to combat winter dryness:

1. Avoiding using harsh cleansers that leave your skin feeling tight or squeaky clean. 

2. Hydrate your skin topically with water AND a hydrating toner. Skin must be hydrated to function optimally and to support better product penetration. 

3. Modify your winter skin care routine by switching up your moisturizer to a richer one that will hydrate and soothe winter skin.

4. Avoid hot baths and showers that dehydrate and potentially trigger irritation in the skin.

5. Exfoliate weekly to removing dead cells and eliminate dry, rough, flaky and itchy winter skin.

6. Incorporate a product containing Hyaluronic Acid which attracts and helps maintain moisture in the skin. 

7. Incorporate a soothing and hydrating facial masque to combat winter dryness and irritation.

8.Invest in a mist humidifier to avoid dry air, maintain healthy humidity levels in your home and retain your skin's natural moisture.

9. Keep your body and lips moisturized to protect them from harsh temperatures and drying air.

10.SPF isn't just for the summer. You can't escape UV rays from burning your skin, even if the sun doesn't feel hot on your skin. Apply and reapply sunscreen every day year-round.

Incorporate these winter skin care tips to keep your skin in soft, smooth, calm and hydrated through this cold and dry winter!
