Winter’s cold temperatures and dry air can wreak havoc on your skin. Fortunately, healthy skin hygiene practices can go a long way toward keeping your skin soft, supple, and healthy during this season. If you’re seeking additional benefits that you can’t seem to achieve from proper cleansing and moisturizing techniques, consider one of our noninvasive skincare treatments.
Exfoliating minimizes dry skin by sloughing away some of the tissue on the top layer. Don’t go overboard, however, because too much abrasion can cause inflammation, irritation, redness, and even injury. Aim instead to lightly exfoliate up to twice per week, using a gentle exfoliating face wash or a face brush or face buff. Even buffing your skin with a washcloth once or twice each week can be sufficient.
The weather may be cooler, but remember the sun still shines brightly and those UV rays can cause damage year round. Use a moisturizer containing SPF 15 or higher and apply more throughout the day as needed. If you don’t want to apply more lotion over your made up face midday, consider using a light powder—such as a loose mineral sunscreen powder brush—containing SPF for continued protection.
It can be tempting to load up on hot chocolate, sugary lattes, and other sweets throughout the winter. While occasional treats are fine, a sugar-rich diet can cause problems to your overall and skin. Sugar increases the risk of free radical damage, which can lead to acne breakouts and rosacea flare-ups.
Instead, choose foods rich antioxidants such as lycopene, which help minimize free radical damage and promote healthy tissue. Good sources include grapefruit, tomatoes, carrots, and pumpkin. While you’re at it, stay well hydrated by drinking plenty of water and consuming hydrating foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, low-fat milk, and broth-based soups.
Layering up hydrating skincare products can go a long way to keeping your skin protected in the winter. Consider starting with a serum, which goes deep into the skin. Look for serums containing antioxidants and peptides. Add a moisturizer containing a prebiotic for better bacterial balance in your skin and don’t forget that sunscreen. Wear a moisturizing night cream while you sleep as well.
