The recent drop in temperature leads us to an undeniable fact: winter is closer than it seems. Unfortunately, the skin will face daily aggressions due to cold weather, sun exposure, and air pollution. The results: inflammation, dryness, redness, and premature skin aging!
While some people appreciate it for its beautiful white landscapes and outdoor activities, others dread its frigid climate and mountains of snow on the sidewalks. Regardless of which side you lean towards, you’ll need to adapt to this new season. Just as you add an extra blanket to your bed and swap your parka for a down coat, the care you give to your skin should also be adjusted.
So here’s an easy-to-follow routine to maintain healthy skin:
Hydrate your skin in the morning before applying your makeup and in the evening after thorough makeup removal. During this season, it is even more important to use the right moisturizer tailored to your specific needs. Since dry skin requires different care than oily or combination skin, it is recommended to receive a skin diagnosis from your esthetician to guide you toward the right products.
Don’t forget that well-hydrated skin starts from the inside. It’s important to continue drinking plenty of water throughout the cold season.
Your skin reflects how you nourish yourself. Therefore, a healthy diet is essential, especially during this time of the year. Take advantage of the abundance of seasonal fruits and vegetables to absorb as many vitamins as possible: squash, carrots, beets, apples, and apricots should be on your menu!
Even though we already feel like summer and its sun are far behind us, the UV rays are still present. This is why it’s essential to use sun care products with the appropriate SPF to protect your skin, which is made more vulnerable by the cold.
Maximizing Skin Hygiene
Cleansing your skin by an esthetician is as beneficial for your skin as it is for your well-being! It is, in fact, recommended to indulge in a facial once a month, ideally, or at least once per season, in addition to your daily skincare routine. It’s a small addition to your routine that is far from unpleasant!
Did you know…
– Allowing your wet skin to air dry is extremely dehydrating for it.
– Seasonal fruits and vegetables can also help extend your summer glow into the autumn.
– Prolonged hot showers should be avoided as they can be damaging to your skin, which is already dry during this time of the year.
– The facial skin, being the thinnest on your body, requires a bit more care than other parts of your epidermis.
