If you haven’t had a taste of winter weather already, you know that cold, dry conditions are just around the corner. Winter means a different strategy for skincare, and the sooner you implement changes, the less your skin will suffer ill effects. To avoid dry, red, flaky, chapped, and irritated winter skin before it starts, make these simple tips a part of your winter skincare routine:
Change Up Your Moisturizer. Your winter moisturizer should contain natural ingredients that protect, soothe, and hydrate like olive fruit oil, shea butter, and jojoba. Actifirm Renovation Cream offers all of these – delivering rich moisture to parched winter skin with the addition of Mucor Miehei mushroom extract, which gently exfoliates away dead skin for better absorption and smooth results.
Turn on the Humidifier. Don’t save your humidifier for sick days – keeping a humidifier running in your home can help maintain skin hydration.
Shower Smart. As tempting as a long, steaming hot shower is on a frigid day, limit time in the tub and keep water at a mildly warm temperature to prevent drying out your skin.
Drink Up. Keep hydrated from the inside out with lots of water. If you’re cold, take off the chill with a steaming cup of green tea – not only will the fluid keep skin supple, but the antioxidants in this healthy drink offer protective and restorative benefits to the skin as well.
Get Professional Help. You seek out professionals to deal with car and home maintenance – why not apply the same care to your skin? An esthetician, dermatologist, or other credentialed skin care expert can assess your skin and offer effective treatment based on professional knowledge and experience.
Just a few alterations to your usual routine can make the difference between stressed winter skin and a beautiful complexion. Take steps now, and enjoy radiant, healthy skin all season long!
