During the winter, many people experience dry, itchy and uncomfortable skin. This is due to a combination of factors such as cold temperatures, low humidity levels and harsh winds. Fortunately, several steps can be taken to reduce winter skin issues and keep your skin healthy. Let's get into what you need to do to be rest assured that your skin will remain healthy and glowing even during the coldest months of the year.
Skip The Scalding Water
Long, steamy showers may feel like just what you need, but it's not what your skin needs in this cold as hot water can dry out the skin which will worsen the winter’s drying effects. Stick to warm water as much as possible.
Gentle Cleansing All The Way
Skip the harsh cleansers this season. Any abrasive or harsh cleansers will only serve to worsen the dryness and another effect of the weather on your skin. Choose a daily gentle cleanser like our Ultra Restore Cleanser.
Layer On The Hydration
There's no better time to add a hydrating serum to your routine. Ingredients such as peptides, hyaluronic acid, and glycerin will help soothe and assist your skin to repair itself as winter takes its toll. We recommend our Peptide Quench Serum, a multi-peptide, hyaluronic acid and aloe serum for restorative hydration.
You Need A Lot More Moisturizer
The rapid loss of Trans Epidermal Water is the major cause of all winter skin problems. Combat this by choosing a rich moisturizer for your face and body. Slather it on daily, both in the morning and night, and don't neglect any bits of your body.
Give Your Lips Some Loving
Don't ignore your lips in this blizzard. Prevent and manage blistering and bleeding with a lip balm, lip oil or some good old Vaseline.
You Need A Face And Body Oil
If you do not lock in the moisture this season, it will escape. You need an occlusive like oils or petroleum jelly. Go in after your moisturiser with some oil to lock all that goodness in. We recommend our Ultra Restore Dry Oil for its elegant blend of oils and antioxidants
Don't Skip The Sunscreen
It may look dreary, but those UV Rays are still there. Wear your sunscreen daily. Even when the sun isn't out and even when you are cooped up inside
