As winter wraps its icy fingers around us, the harsh weather can wreak havoc on our delicate facial skin.
The combination of cold winds, low humidity, and indoor heating strips away the skin's natural moisture, leaving it dry, tight, and prone to irritation. However, with a thoughtful skincare routine, you can still maintain a radiant complexion even in the coldest months.
Firstly, hydration is key. Drinking plenty of water helps to replenish the moisture lost due to the dry winter air. Additionally, incorporating a rich, hydrating moisturizer into your daily routine acts as a protective barrier, preventing the skin from losing essential moisture.
Use Multi-Tasking Products
Eight Hour® Cream Skin Protectant clinically improves the skin’s barrier while deeply moisturising and protecting the skin. Can be used on face, body, hands, nails. It's a true all-in-one multi-tasking product.
Exfoliation is crucial during winter to slough off dead skin cells that can accumulate and contribute to a dull complexion. Choose a gentle exfoliator to avoid irritating the skin further. Following exfoliation, apply a nourishing serum containing ingredients like hyaluronic acid and vitamin E to lock in moisture and promote a youthful glow.
When thinking about exfoliating, it's not all about your face. Don't forget about your body too. Dead skin cells build up on your body daily that need to be sloughed off, but be gentle. Choose an exfoliator for your skin type.
Don't forget about sun protection. The winter sun can be just as damaging as its summer counterpart, so applying a broad-spectrum SPF is a must, especially on exposed areas like the face.
Sun Protection In Winter
Winter sun can be just as damaging as summer so applying a broad-spectrum SPF is essential. Harsh Winter sun can play havoc if you have rosacea or sensitive skin.
In conclusion, combating winter's assault on your skin requires a holistic approach. By staying hydrated, exfoliating, and using the right skincare products, you can embrace the winter season with a radiant and well-nourished complexion.
