Winter weather often means you need to pay more attention to your beauty routine. Cold winter air, strong winds, and switching from frigid outside air to extremely warm indoor heat can all be harsh and unforgiving on your skin, leaving it feeling dry, flaky, itchy, and irritated, and even making it appear more dull than usual. The same conditions can do a similar number on your hair, leaving it more brittle and frizzy without any added humidity in the air.
1. The most important thing is to focus on moisturizing the face during winter when people with dry skin in the winter will suffer. Because if you don’t do skincare carefully, your dry skin will stretch even cracked, that is quite uncomfortable. In other seasons, you can just skincare in the morning and evening, that is sufficient for your skin to be in “water”, but in winter, in cold countries, you must choose products with high hydrating and must moisture the skin regularly. You should do all the steps of serum, essence, lotion, cream, and if necessary, add a layer of nourishing oil on top in the evening before going to bed. In addition, you can spray more moisturizing water every few hours.
If you have sensitive or super dry skin in the winter, you can try Dove’s DermaSeries kit. This kit is great for sensitive sensitive skin that is dry, flaky, or even eczema-prone. It has no sulfate, no soap, no parabens and no odorant so it is very benign. Because of its benign nature, it is suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. This line is manufactured in the US / Canada, but Dove just entered the sale a few months earlier.
2. Secondly, please provide additional oils for the skin. If you already have a good moisturizer and don’t want to spend the extra money on a new one, you should buy a lotion like Argan Oil or Kiehl’s Midnight Concentrate. This serum can be mixed with lotion to make it moist, or apply to the skin after the steps. You can mix with foundation to make it smoother, generally like it.
3. If your skin is too dry, you don’t need to wash your face in the morning. wipe gently with toner and moisturize is okay. At night, use a facial cleanser and oil remover to moisturize skin.
4. You should exfoliate to make the moisturizer feel better and avoid hidden acne. However, too much bleach can dry out the skin creating dry skin cells that clog pores that cause acne. In the winter, we recommends using a chemical exfoliator like AHA to help reduce dry skin.
5. Do not take a hot bath because it will remove the natural oils from your skin. Bathe with moisturizers like Dove or Yves Rocher shower gel. In addition, after bathing, the skin is still damp, apply body lotion immediately. You can try the body lotion of Yves Rocher or Kiehl’s. If anyone’s body is too dry, we recommends applying Johnson Baby Oil Gel after bathing, making sure the skin is moisturized like baby’s skin.
6. Dry skin and heels, we recommends Repair Balm Extra Dry Skin from Yves Rocher. This wax is super good, soothing and moisturizing immediately.
7. Provide moisture from inside. We are less thirsty in the winter, but don’t forget to drink plenty of water to provide moisture from the inside. In addition, you can supplement functional foods such as evening primrose oil, vitamin E, fish oil capsules. Well, in addition, you should not drink a lot of coffee, tea, or products with a lot of caffeine. Because it dehydrates, it makes my skin drier.
8. To moisturize the lips, we highly recommend Laneige lip sleep mask. About once a week, you can moisturize the lips and use a soft brush to brush all the dead skin on the lips. At night before going to bed, you can apply lip mask of Laneige or lip balm of Whoo or Sulwhasoo.
9. An exfoliating scrub will help get rid of dead skin, leaving behind a smoother surface that will soak up all that moisturizer. Don’t expect even the heaviest moisturizer to solve all of your problems. You need to actually get rid of all of that dead skin, not just cover it up with something. Dr. Robb Akridge, skin expert and co-founder of Clarisonic, said, “It is essential to exfoliate. In the winter, the skin dehydrates faster, which accentuates your fine lines and wrinkles.
The natural thing to do is use heavy cream, which can clog pores. By exfoliating, you are able to remove dead skin cells, and hopefully unplug pores, thus allowing the release of natural skin oils and better absorption of skincare products
10. Don’t forget about sunscreen, even when it seems like the sun has gone MIA. Sunscreen is still essential in the winter. Sometimes it’s so cold out that we don’t even realize our skin is being exposed to the elements, leaving it more susceptible to damage. Just because the sun isn’t out doesn’t mean you can’t get sun damage. Harmful UV rays can still penetrate through clouds. Protecting your skin with an effective SPF is crucial all year-round, not just in the summer
