Cold winter time weather can be rough on the skin. Freezing temperature (for water) is at 32°F and in many areas throughout the U.S. and world, temperatures get much lower than that. In addition, you need to factor in the wind chill, snow, storms, hail, and rain! What does this mean for your skin? Eeeek!!
(That’s the sound of your skin freaking out!)
Due to treacherous weather conditions, it’s very common for your skin can become:
- More acne prone
It is always important to maintain your healthy normal skin routine which should include lots of water, fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, and exercise.
But you should also…
Moisturize with oils
Use a moisturizer with more and/or oils (such as: primrose oil, jojoba oil, argan oil)
Product! I’m actually using this Skin By Ann Webb Unscented Face and Body Cream, which contains more oils than my normal moisturizer. You can find it online or at whole foods.
Tone it down
Toners are great, but sometimes overuse can lead to drying the skin. You may want to consider skipping using a toner altogether during the winter or perhaps diluting it with a little bit of water.
Because your skin may become excessively dry, this may result in dry patches. And when left with dead skin this can lead to clogged pores. Try gently exfoliating to keep skin clear of dry, dead skin.
Product! I use the Clarisonic Mia II which you can use daily to scrub away dirt, and dead skin. You can purchase this item online or at Sephora and many other department stores.
