Skin Care Tips for Cold Weather
The winter breeze is here, and soon we will be changing and rearranging our wardrobe to warmer clothes and colors. This extends to our dressing table and beauty cabinet. There are things that will be pushed to the back of the cabinet and products that will be pushed forward. Let’s take a journey through your skin care routine for this season!
Pay attention to your face and neck cleansing routine:
You will notice that your skin will need to change cleansers when the winter air starts blowing in. During the summer, skin becomes more oily with the heat and humidity, but in winter that’s not the case. Choose a mild non-irritating cleanser, and be sure it doesn’t contain any harsh ingredients.
Don’t forget to exfoliate:
Use a enzymatic peel once per week to elbows and knees and you will notice those areas becoming softer and brighter with regular use.
Sunscreens and BB creams:
Just because you feel the cool winter air it doesn’t mean that the sun isn’t shining along with its harmful rays. A broad spectrum sunscreen that protects from both UVA and UVB with the recommended SPF 30 and above is still mandatory.
Use a moisturiser:
All skin types in winter will need some sort of moisturizing fluid, lotion, or cream – even acne prone skin. Read labels carefully and choose the product that is specific to your skin type and problem. So, if you suffering from acne, choose a hydrating lotion that is specific for acne prone skin, and that is labeled non comedogenic. If you have dry eczema prone skin, choose a hypo allergic non irritating moisturizer.
No matter what the season is, you should always visit your dermatologist and catch up. With seasonal changes it might be best to give a visit to your dermatologist to make sure you enjoy the holiday season as much as you can!
