Winter can wreak havoc on your skin — making it dry, itchy, and irritated. And it can feel like there’s no escape. Cold, blustery conditions outside can leave your skin feeling raw, while indoor heat zaps moisture from the air and from your skin.
But there are many simple ways to combat the causes of dry winter skin and help keep your skin feeling moist and supple all season long, including some easy changes to your everyday routine.
1. Swap Your Gel/Foaming Cleanser for Cream/Oil-based Cleanser
Since your skin is already lacking moisture, you don’t want to chance to strip it of natural oils with stronger cleansers. Cream cleansers are gentler on dry skin and have moisture built right in! If your skin is super dry, consider using a cleansing oil to dissolve dirt and makeup without drying out skin!
2. More and More Serum!
If you haven’t already incorporated a serum into your skincare routine, you might be missing out on some uber moisturizing and anti-aging benefits. Serums are thinner in consistency but contain a potent concentration of active ingredients to pack a punch and target skin concerns. And, this includes dry skin. Serums containing hyaluronic acid use this powerful humectant to grab moisture out of the air and hold it to your skin’s surface to deliver deep, lasting hydration. Serums are applied before your moisturizer to allow ingredients to really absorb into skin and provide maximum results. A hydrating serum is a perfect way to give some moisturizing and anti-aging benefits to protect against dry winter air!
