When the cold season starts, you might want to switch up your wardrobe. But we also recommend changing your skincare routine, since your skin needs more moisture and protection. The atmospheric agents, such as wind, rain, and snow, can dry and damage the epidermis, but you can do something to prevent these problems. Follow these tips to make your skincare routine winter-proof.
Seal hydration in the skin
Even those who have oily or mixed skin will notice a visible decrease in skin hydration when it starts to get cold. Also, other annoying blemishes like pimples, chapped lips, redness, and blotchiness can begin to appear. To protect the skin, we suggest applying a serum and a natural moisturizer with a creamy and emollient consistency. For an added hydration boost, we recommend using the products directly on damp skin after cleansing, to seal the moisture in.
Avoid excessive heat
When it is cold, you might think that there is nothing better than a hot shower when you wake up or before going to sleep. On the contrary, you must be careful because hot water dries the skin and eliminates its natural protective barrier. For this reason, we recommend using only warm water on the face and the most delicate parts of the body. Likewise, it is advisable not to expose your face directly to heat sources that are too intense, such as the fireplace or the warm air of air warmers.
During winter, your skin needs additional care because it is more fragile and prone to irritation. To eliminate dead cells and promote cell turn-over, you can do a special treatment using a scrub and a mask at least once a week. For daily cleaning, use a non-aggressive detergent that does not contain artificial chemical compounds such as parabens, petrolatum, and heavy metals. Thanks to these small tricks, your face will be glowing and radiant even in the coldest and grayest season of the year!
