Your skin is an important part of your body that you need to keep healthy.
Daily Skin Care
Not only is skincare important in the winter, but it is also good to keep a regular routine as well.
Think of your skin-care routine as consisting of two main steps:
- Cleansing — Washing your face.
- Moisturizing — Hydrating and softening the skin.
The general rule of thumb here is that cleansing your complexion twice per day once in the morning, once in the evening is ideal. Cleansing in the morning will help to remove any evidence of sweat or oil on your skin.
This step simply means to hydrate your skin and prevent cracking. Usually. an oil-free, fragrance-free moisturizer is the best as this will be well tolerated for all skin types, from acne-prone to sensitive.
According to many dermatologists, La Roche-Posay Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer, Vichy Aqualia Thermal UV Defense Moisturizer, and Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel seem to be ones that are highly recommended and praised.
These of course are the most basic parameters that everyone should follow to maintain healthy skin.
Winter Skin Care
In the winter, you still have to continue keeping a daily skincare routine, but there may be some slight changes.
As the weather warms and cools throughout the year, the humidity levels in the air fluctuate as well. With lower humidity—typically what we experience during the cold winter months—our skin’s moisture levels can plummet and dryness and a dull skin tone can set in. This is why rich moisturizers are key during the fall and winter seasons.
Often, much of the dryness falls on your lips as well, so it is recommended to use a form of moisturizer on your lips as well.
