Cooling temperatures and windy days can be a delight to the senses, but they also have a tendency to wreak havoc on your skin. The good news is that there are lots of ways to prep your face for colder weather. If you have winter blues, consider these beauty innovations and brighten up even the darkest of wintery days.
Look After Your Lipids:
Pick up a slightly more emollient moisturizer. Skin gets drier in cooler weather, and one of the best ways to keep it from having issues is to keep your lipid barrier well protected. Try GLAMGLOW THIRSTYMUD(TM) Hydrating Treatment 1.7 oz. THIRSTYMUD™ uses the newest, most advanced, and extreme hydration active technologies. It moisturizes, restores, replenishes, and calms the skin. Dewdration™ boosts and locks in moisture for a dewy and youthful result while HydraPack™ leaves skin with an instant silky, soft, and supple feel.
Stop before you slough:
Use acids and scrubs a little less frequently. When you exfoliate, skin is more sensitive, and cold air or harsh weather conditions can often exacerbate skin issues. Get a facial serum with hyaluronic acid instead, like Trish Mcevoy Beauty Booster Serum. Hyaluronic is a humectant, which means that it helps keep skin hydrated. And if you happen to have oily skin, a serum’s gel-like consistency won’t be too greasy for you.
Allergies, rosacea, and eczema tend to act up during seasonal transitions, so keep your skin soothed with calendula extract or another anti-inflammatory. For eczema try Kate Somerville Eczema Therapy Cream 4 oz. Formulated with colloidal oatmeal, a known skin-protecting ingredient for eczema. This fast-absorbing cream helps soothe irritation and relieve itching associated with dry skin conditions, such as eczema, and is clinically proven to moisturize for up to 24 hours.
Easy does it:
Use a gentle cleanser that’s fragrance-free and nondrying. It will keep your skin’s reactivity low and irritation at bay. Best milky cleanser by Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cream Cleanser 5.07 oz. Formulated with milk proteins, it provides skin-enhancing lactose and essential amino acids to form a protective hydration shield on the skin.
