When it comes to summer skin care routines, people usually know exactly what their skin needs. However, winter skin care is often neglected. The transition in between seasons can be tough on our skin. If you plan on traveling for the winter holidays to partake in any snow activities, you will need to change your daily skin regimen. You need a special winter skin care routine. Your skin requires a different winter regimen to combat drier air and less humidity; this means you need to use different products.
To avoid the itching, flaking and bumps this winter, try using these five essential winter skin care products. Your skin will definitely thank you by rewarding you with a healthy, youthful glow.
Whether you have oily or dry skin, everyone needs some type of moisturizer, especially during the winter months. Try adding a rich and restorative moisturizer product to your winter skin care routine this season, ideal for higher altitudes and drier climates. SkinCeuticals Emollience is a great moisturizer to protect your complexion against the elements; it absorbs evenly and quickly and is optimal for dry or sensitive skin.
SPF helps to protect your skin from harmful rays through every season. Cloudy days do not make the sun’s rays any less damaging. Few know that the sun is actually closer to the earth during the winter months.
SkinCeuticals Physical UV Defense acts as a sun protector with moisturizer, so even on dark, cold days this product will provide the protection your skin needs. If you plan on skiing this winter, exposure to UV rays are more intense at higher elevations; the snow and the ice are reflective so this makes conditions even worse. Trade out your summer sunscreen for a moisturizing SPF cream to protect your skin while you enjoy winter vacation.
SkinCeuticals Retinol 0.5 is a product that will help with dry, tight skin. Our SkinCeuticals retinol products are useful because they stimulate cell regeneration and help build collagen. A nightly retinol treatment can help offset the effects of low humidity and cold winds; this product is crucial to a complete wnter skin care routine.
Your face is important, but your lips are equally important in colder weather. A lip balm that contains SPF will keep your lips nice and moisturized this winter.
Winter changes your skin’s needs. The products you used during the summer may not work the same during the winter. If your skin is dry or irritated, try new hypoallergenic and sensitive-skin formulas. Your special winter skin care routine should be flexible. SkinCeuticals provides great products specifically for sensitive skin and eczema-prone skin. Yes, eczema is typically an allergic reaction, but cold weather can cause eczema to flare up.
