Give It a Break
Many people think that the best course of action is to continue their skincare routine when their skin begins to peel or burn. This, however, is not always the case and can sometimes make things worse for you. The more you wash your skin, the more oils you strip from the surface. These oils are essential to keeping your skin healthy and hydrated, but washing too roughly or frequently removes them. To combat this, consider pausing your skincare routine for a day or two each week. Instead, use water-based moisturizers to rehydrate your skin.
Use a Humidifier
Cold air saps the moisture from your skin. In some cases, this leads to your skin peeling lightly and bunching up in spots around your face. Cold, dry air doesn’t provide any environmental moisture for your skin, leaving it irritated and dry. Having a humidifier on in your room helps balance that moisture loss by adding it into the air, creating a less harsh environment for your skin.
Get a Facial
Going to the spa is not just for the warmer seasons. While it’s a great way to treat yourself and take a break, the facials you can get at a spa are excellent for maintaining your skin’s health. You may consider looking into classic facials, such as hydrafacial treatments, which deeply cleanse your skin and replenish your skin’s hydration. Facials always leave you glowing and are worth the visit.
Winter makes it difficult to care for your skin in the same way you can during the warmer months. However, by treating your skin gently and focusing on hydrating it, you can combat this common winter struggle. These tips for taking care of your skin in the winter are worth considering for those whose skin dreads the colder season.
