Many people find a great skincare product, incorporate it into their skincare routine, and never want to try other products or treatments. But even as you cling to your favorite skincare product for dear life, you could be damaging your skin instead of repairing it. Your skincare routine should not look the same in the summer as it does in the winter. Your skin has different needs during this time. Here are some of the best ways to care for your skin as temps get colder.
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!
We can’t stress this enough. The winter months are very drying to your skin. As temperatures drop, the humidity in the air also usually decreases significantly, taking away some of your skin’s natural moisture. You also spend more time indoors, and indoor air run through a furnace or other heating system is also very dry air. The end result is that your skin becomes dry and prone to injury or rapid aging. For best results, moisturize right out of the shower or just after washing your face.
Cold weather? You still need sunscreen.
Just because the weather is colder, it doesn’t mean that the sun is any less harmful. Those UV rays are still coming down, contributing to higher cancer risk. You should wear at least a light sunscreen on all exposed surfaces of your body, including your face. Some moisturizers or foundations contain sunscreen, usually in smaller amounts, but more effective.
Moisturizing facials get you back on track.
