How to Change your Skin Routine for Winter

Of all the things Winter brings with it, the one thing we could all do without is Winter skin! Cold air and low humidity zap the skin of natural moisture. Combatting it can also lead to clogged pores, breakouts and dry flaky skin! It’s like the perfect storm of skin nightmares. But don’t fret Winter warriors! We’ve got some great tips to work into your Winter skin regimen that will help you keep your healthy glow even when the temps drop to sub-zero!

Always start fresh – Making sure you remove all traces of makeup is essential for any season but be careful not to over-cleanse to avoid stripping your skin of its’ natural oils in the process. A gentle micellar makeup remover is ideal for keeping the pallet that is your face clean and fresh!

Lay it on thick – There’s a fine line to walk between choosing a richer, heavier moisturizer that can compensate for the cold air and going too far and clogging those pores. Incorporating a good hydrating serum can be the perfect compromise that slows moisture loss and helps to draw in moisture.

We’ve just scraped the surface – Regularly exfoliating is super important to removing dead skin cells that can leave your skin looking dull. Just like most things, go easy and don’t over exfoliate or you can end up with irritated, dry skin that is what you’re trying to avoid. Follow up exfoliating with a gentle, soothing moisturizer.

Beauty begins on the inside – Let’s just say you can give your skin a boost of encouragement from the inside by taking skin-enhancing supplements like Omega 3. The other inside tip – water, water, water. Yep! Hydrating your body from the inside out is great for your skin, so drink as much H2O as possible every day.

Let’s face it, none of these tips are limited to Winter time application. Making a genuine effort in the colder months to stick to a good skin care regimen will benefit you and your skin all year round!
