With winter now in full force, this spells disaster for our skin. Are you suffering from dry itchy tight skin? Or maybe your problem is the opposite— tight skin, but oily on top with congestion. Winter can be tough on everyone’s skin, even those who typically have perfect skin year round. If this sounds like you, the following tips can help your skin survive winter weather.
GET A HUMIDIFIER
Winter spells dehydration for the skin! Dry winter air sucks the moisture out of the skin. Central heating blasting dry hot air all day doesn’t help matters either! This can even make smooth young skin look wrinkled. Moisture in the air is important when it comes to keeping your skin barrier hydrated. Use a humidifier, trust me, your skin will thank you.
INCREASE YOUR OMEGA FATTY ACIDS
Yes, internally. Get those fatty acids in you. Omega 3 fatty acids in particular will boost the hydration in your skin. And if you’re having the opposite problem (your skin is trying to protect itself by producing more oil) you’re in luck. Omega 3’s will regulate your oil production.
STOP TAKING HOT BATHS
I know, they feel great. Especially in the winter, but please try to avoid them if your skin is dehydrated. Hot water will break down the lipid barriers on your skin leaving them parched. Lukewarm baths and showers are the key!
GET YOURSELF A HYDRATING SERUM
Like our Roccoco’s Melon Moisture boost. Yeah moisturizers are great. They give you that instant plumping hydration effect but beyond the uppermost layers of the skin they do zilch. Do yourself a favor and get a hydrating serum. The lower molecular structure of serums allow active ingredients to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, deeper than moisturizers can. This means maximum results!
BOOK A HYDRATING FACIAL
A facial treatment is essential for healthy skin when facing harsh weather. A professional will gently buff off any flaky skin, extract any congestion and flood your skin with the nourishing hydrating actives it needs to tough out harsh weather. Our Hydration boost facial is perfect for banishing winter skin.
