Adjust Skin Care
A proper winter skincare regimen is very important to keeping your skin hydrated and looking amazing. For radiant skin, come winter with its dry air and cold temperatures, it’s a hands-on situation. Here are some easy winter moisture and skin care types to remember when putting together your skincare routine in the cold months.
When it comes to skin care, you not only adjust your routine in winter but the products you use as well. Skin care products in winter should be gentler and less abrasive to avoid stripping natural moisture.
Be Careful With Breakouts
Tackling acne and breakouts, in normal conditions, they’d be tackled with a ton of abrasive skincare products. In winter, you want to focus on cleansers that contain moisturizers and treatments build around things like ceramides, hyaluronic acid, hydration serums, and glycerin-containing products.
A light moisturizer applied regularly is a good way to maintain healthy, moist skin. Winter air is always drier. Water and moisture will evaporate quickly. Carry on you a light moisturizer that’s appropriate for your skin type.
Moisturize Your Hands
When picking up products on Black Friday deals, do not forget about your hands. The hands have fewer oil glands compared to other parts of the body. Moisture escapes the hands easily and they’re prone to cracks and itchiness in the winter.
Exfoliate Only Once A Week
Exfoliating removes dead skin cells and is a great habit to get into. In winter though, it will compromise your skin’s moisture barrier which is already taking a hit from the season. Only exfoliate at most once a week.
Use A Humidifier
Hang onto the humidity that there is and add to it. Installing a humidifier will help keep a room’s moisture up. This won’t do any good outside in the cold air but inside, it will help a ton in hydrating skin.
Don’t Take Hot Showers
As nice as a hot shower may sound, they’ll dry your skin. If you don’t moisturize right after, your skin’s going to crack and winter eczema may be something you have to contend with. Winter moisture can be tough to come by and you have to keep as much of it as you can. Always lukewarm water.
Even on cloudy days, you still have UV rays coming through. UV rays from the sun cause skin damage. A moisturizer with broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or above should be applied.
Hyaluronic acid and/or any other sort of moisturizing serum make for some of the best Sukin skincare products for winter. They adhere to the surface of the skin well and provide long-lasting hydration. Apply it before your moisturizer for maximum effect.
