Skiing, hot toddies and sitting by the fire – while winter definitely has its qualities, the cold, dry winter air can wreak complete havoc on your skin.
Whether you’re outside and exposed to the elements or inside where the heat is blasting, you’re more susceptible to dry skin now than any other time of the year. Here are our 7 winter skin care tips for keeping skin happy and hydrated.
1. Stay hydrated
The first step to maintaining skincare in winter is to hydrate from the inside out. Drink lots of water – not only will it help with your complexion, but it will keep you healthy and hydrated throughout the day.
2. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize
This rule applies year-round but especially holds true in winter. Choosing a rich moisturizer like our Overnight Recovery Cream can help lock in additional moisture back into your skin. And always make sure you put on lotion as soon as you get out of the shower – try our Replenishing Hand & Body Moisturizer.
3. Choose a gentle face wash
It’s always important to wash your face morning and night, but choosing a gentler face wash can prevent your skin from drying out. Follow with our Daily Face Repair to soothe sensitive skin prone to dry redness.
4. Invest in a humidifier
One of the best things you can do for your skin in wintertime is to use a humidifier, especially at night. Adding some moisture to the air will help remedy a dry home.
5. Try a face oil
For extra-dry skin, introducing a face oil into your winter skincare routine can help lock in additional moisture from your moisturizers and serums. Our Revitalize Face Oil is just the fix – and we recommend adding a few drops to you night time routine.
6. Look after your lips
Protect your lips from the cold and wind and use lip balm regularly to avoid chapping. Try out our Chapped Lip Remedy – it has SPF protection too!
7. Wear sunscreen
Though there is less exposure to the sun in winter, you should still wear SPF to protect your skin from harmful UV rays from the sun and glare from snow.
Winter skincare is crucial, especially with the harsh cold weather. Though it may be tempting to neglect your regular routine, don’t forget to keep up with your skincare.
