We all know that the winter weather can play havoc with our skin. The combination of the drop in humidity that comes with colder weather, as well as the drying effect of centrally heated homes all adds up to challenges for our skin.
Hydration, therefore, is key if you want to keep your skin feeling soft, supple and hydrated during this time of the year. As an article for Vogue recently noted, there are a few options to keep the skin, particularly on our faces, looking and feeling at its best.
Skin expert Jasmina Vico told the publication that it’s best to opt for “unscented, natural formulas” for your skin care products during the winter, as fragranced soaps and body creams can further dry the skin.
Dermalogica products fall into this category and they are a great addition to your beauty and skin care regime, so if you’re not already using them take a look at our range (even if you are, you might find a new product that could boost your skin in the winter).
Dermatology and aesthetics RGN Emma Coleman told the magazine that using facial oil overnight is a good tip at this time of year, as is choosing a serum that’s high in vitamin C, because this stimulates collagen production in the skin and encourages cell turnover.
In November, Real Simple also offered some top winter skin care tips, including reducing the length of time you spend in the shower, as well as the temperature of the water, to avoid overly drying your skin out, and to swap to a cream rather than using a lotion-based moisturiser.
