Сold season is on its way, meaning our skin will be especially in need of extra care and high protection. Chilly air, strong winds, heaters and layers of clothes can damage our skin, making it dry, dehydrated and irritated. Especially for those with sensitive or acne-prone skin, this can be a big challenge. We have gathered the most effective and simple cold season facial care tips to keep skin healthy and protected from any weather conditions. Let it be dewy and glowing!
Cleansing, but Still Moisturizing
Cleansing is still the very first and crucial step in the skincare routine during cold seasons. It is good to remember that the main rule with this process is not to dry out the skin even more than it was before. Since it may already be damaged, we advise using cleansers with oils or vitamins C and E, to additionally hydrate the skin. Hydrophilic oil will also be a perfect option to not only thoroughly remove make-up, but also to nourish the skin without weighing it down. Important tip: try not to wash your face with hot water, which will only aggravate dryness — it is better to use slightly warm water.
Toner is Your Best Friend
The chilly season is an excuse to stock up on new toners. They will fulfill the function of additional moisturizing and prepare the skin for the application of other care products. However, before using any toner, make sure that it does not contain alcohol, which will cause more dryness and irritation.
It is essential to remember that moisturizer is not the only thing that will make our skin glow. The key to radiant and healthy skin is consistent and multi-level care. It is necessary to choose not only thicker creams for winter care, but also to add serums, essences and masks. Certainly, before using any new skin acid or vitamin, one should consult an aesthetician or dermatologist to find the perfect personalized combination.
Our Dear SPF
Despite the fact that it may seem that the sun is not so active in autumn and winter, harmful UVA and UVB rays are still there. Each can lead to sun burns, photo-aging and may cause unwanted pigmentation. Especially if the skincare routine is full of products with acids, SPF creams, gels or sticks are must-haves.
