Winter Skincare SOS: A Guide To Tackling Dry Skin

Winter Skincare SOS: A Guide To Tackling Dry Skin

As the winter chill sets in, many of us find ourselves grappling with the unwelcome companion of dry skin. The drop in temperature, combined with indoor heating systems, can strip our skin of its natural moisture, leaving it feeling tight, flaky, and sometimes even itchy. Fear not, for here’s a brief guide on how to keep your skin supple and hydrated during the winter months.

  1. Hydration is Key: Begin from the inside out by ensuring you’re adequately hydrated. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to maintain your skin’s moisture from the inside out. Then, boost your skin’s hydration with these recommended products: Skinmedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator Serum, and/or Skinbetter Alto Defense Serum.
  2. Gentle Cleansing: Opt for a mild, hydrating cleanser to avoid stripping away essential oils from your skin. Hot water can exacerbate dryness, so stick to lukewarm water when washing your face. Use cleansers that hydrate such as: La Roche Posay Hydrating Gentle Cleanser, or SkinCeuticals Gentle Cleanser.

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize: Invest in a rich, emollient moisturizer to lock in moisture. Apply it immediately after showering or washing your face to seal in the hydration. The top moisturizers to use include: Skinbetter Trio Rebalancing Moisture Treatment, Skinbetter Hydration Boosting Cream, or Glowbiotics Probiotic HydraGlow Cream Oil.

Remember, the key to combating winter dryness is consistency. Establishing a skincare routine that prioritizes hydration will help you maintain a radiant complexion throughout the colder months. Embrace the winter wonderland outside, while keeping your skin pampered and protected.
