We must change and adjust our skin care regimen as we move closer to the winter months and slowly leave behind the monsoons. Failure to adjust one’s skincare regimen during this unavoidable change in the weather can result in breakouts, persistent irritation, and other potentially harmful and troublesome skin issues. We’ve put together a list of some practical and effective strategies to prevent skin issues in winter to make the process easier for you.
Dead skin cell accumulation can make your skin look dull and block follicles, which frequently causes breakouts and congestion. The buildup of dead skin cells might hinder the effectiveness of your skincare products as well as contribute to these skin problems. Exfoliating your face on a regular basis, between 1-3 times a week, keeps your skin fresh and unclogged and helps your skincare products penetrate better.
Defend Your Lips
Apply a thin layer of lip balm in the morning after brushing your teeth. Before you put on makeup, give it some time to settle in. Your lips will stay soft as a result, even while using matte formulations. Apply a nutritious lip balm to your lips before bed to prevent overnight lip drying.
Even when the weather gets cold, wearing sunscreen is still recommended. There’s no excuse not to defend yourself every day because there are many distinctive sunscreen alternatives to fit your skin’s demands.
To counteract the dry air in the winter, one of the simplest things you can do is to replace your regular moisturizer with one that has a somewhat thicker and richer texture. From light to deep, these are some of our favorite holiday moisturizers:
- Hydra-Bright AHA Hydrator
- Oil Free Moisturizer
- Glycolic Resurfacing Cream
- Restorative Cream
- HA-Revive Hyaluronic Hydrator
- Vita E Essential Cream
Dress Appropriately, Securely, and Without Irritability
Many winter clothing materials can worsen dry skin. Avoid letting wool or scratchy garments come into direct contact with your skin. Dry skin may become irritated and itchy as a result. Instead, dress in thin layers next to your skin that is composed of breathable, natural fibers (such as silk or cotton). Put on your thicker, warmer sweaters after that. Wear gloves or mittens to keep your hands warm in the winter. Try leather gloves if wool ones irritate you too much.
Follow a Healthy Diet.
One of the most ignored elements of an efficient skin care package is a healthy diet. Vegetables and fruits ensure that the body obtains essential nutrients and that your skin is healthy, bright, and youthful-looking.
Fitness is Essential.
Exercise is essential to preparing your face for the frigid winter months since it improves blood flow to the skin. This relentlessly advances blood oxygen, and blood that is sufficiently oxygenated enhances the look and wellness of the skin by stimulating skin cells with important nutrients. Getting involved in physically demanding activities like running, yoga or any other sport will substantially help your winter skin care program.
