It is wintertime – while we are enjoying the holiday season, our skin is experiencing a rough time. The cold weather outside and the heat indoors will both bring uncomfortable dryness to our face, hands, and hair. For some people, the dryness on the skin may cause itch, crack, inflammation, and even eczema. Under such dry conditions, our skin is less able to protect itself unless we do something to prevent the skin from drying out. Read on to get our winter skin care tips, so that your skin stays soft and smooth through the winter.
- Moisturize more than you normally do.
Your skin care products might just work fine in spring and summer. However, the weather condition changes in winter, you might also want to change your daily skin care routine.
- Stay hydrated.
Although there’s no actual scientific proof that water can rehydrate your skin, it is still a good idea to drink plenty of water during winter to prevent you from feeling dryness. The heating system in your home makes the air extremely dry, remember to turn your humidifier on to have more moisture in the air, which helps prevent your skin from drying out.
- Use oil based skin care products.
Get yourself a heavier moisturizer that's oil-based, as the oil will create a protective layer on the skin that retains more moisture.
- Dress accordingly.
When you are going to head into the cold and windy outdoors, make sure you are dressing right for the weather. Hat, scarf, and gloves will provide necessary warmness, and more importantly, avoid skin exposure to cold air.
- Do not forget sunscreen.
Sunscreen products are not just for summer, winter sun can still damage your skin. If it is snowing in your area, the snow glare is also a UV source.
