-Environmental conditions significantly contribute to the overall health of your skin so it is essential to adjust your skin care routine with the change in seasons. It looks like there is going to be another 6 weeks of winter so here are some skin care tips to keep your skin looking youthful and radiant this winter!
Many people experience an increase in dehydration during the winter months and skin becomes drier and more irritated. To counteract the dehydration during drier climates, you should implement more gentle, hydrating products that maintain your skin’s natural moisture barrier.
Switching from a gel-based or foaming cleanser to a creamy cleanser for winter will remove the excess dirt or oil from the day without stripping your skin. Adding a hydrating toner into your routine after cleansing and before moisturizing will increase your skin’s ability to absorb the hydrating and nourishing properties of your skin care products.
If you’re using a light-weight moisturizer year-round but notice your skin becoming drier when the temperature and humidity drops, try switching to a thicker moisturizer that will lock in that moisture- your skin will thank you for it.
If you are still experiencing flaky skin, then your skin could be telling you to exfoliate! Exfoliation will remove those pesky dead skin cells off the surface of your skin and diminish the look of dull skin. However, it’s important to not over exfoliate your skin because it can cause irritation and lead to breakouts.
To give your skin the extra boost of hydration it needs, you can add the PCA Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum into your routine. This serum penetrates deep into your skin to provide long lasting hydration which results in smooth and glowing skin. Incorporate this serum into your winter skin-care routine to combat dry, dull and irritated skin!
Don’t forget about your lips in your skin-care routine! Your skin isn’t the only thing that can be affected by the colder weather. Dry and chapped lips have entered the chat. Give your lips the hydration they need with the PCA Hyaluronic Acid Lip Booster. This lip serum instantly hydrates your lips and give them a more plump or fuller appearance. Come by to purchase this serum so you can have the perfect Valentine’s day pucker.
Dealing with breakouts this winter? If your skin has a tendency to break out more during the colder months, seasonal changes could be the culprit! When the environment becomes drier and colder, it can weaken your skin’s natural moisture barrier. This causes a buildup of dead skin cells at the surface of your skin and increases the susceptibility of your skin to trap dirt and oil. It is important to not over exfoliate, use overly irritating products and to keep your skin hydrated!
The sun’s UV rays are just as harmful to your skin, so SPF in the winter is important. This critical skin care step should be present all year round! Purchase a sunscreen that also has hydrating properties to fight off both harmful UV rays and winter weather. See our previous blog post about the importance of SPF “LINK”
