During the winter season the combination of cold and harsh weather outside and warm and dry heating indoors can cause dryness and sensitivity to the skin. Air conditioning in offices also tend to dehydrate the skin.
If you are going on a skiing holiday you will need to take extra care of your skin as the combination of wind, cold air and sunshine can be very harsh for the face. A good sunscreen is essential and so is an all-round moisturiser.
Your face is exposed to the elements – unlike the rest of the body, cocooned in layers of woolly jumpers – the face is unprotected, even if you wear a hat and scarf. Therefore, pay special attention to your face in winter, particularly the area around your cheeks and nose, because it needs protecting from the extremes in temperature.
To prevent dryness, your daily moisturiser needs to support your skin’s innate ability to act as a barrier against the elements while also promoting the skin’s own renewal process.
While fresher, water-based moisturisers are perfect during the summer, in winter you should choose a moisturiser rich in plant oils to quench the skin and penetrate into its deepest layers. This will soothe any dry, flaky patch on the skin while also preventing moisture from escaping.
Locking in the moisture while delivering hydration to the skin at its deepest levels is the best strategy for great looking skin in winter.
If you want smooth, plump, supple skin this winter, the first thing to do is to look at the right skincare for you: it should be rich in carefully selected and effective ingredients that bring results. Your skincare should feature ingredients that can boost collagen production, provide deep hydration and rejuvenate the skin.
A good skincare routine during the winter months should include moisturising day and evening after cleansing.
Your Skin Allies
To give your skin the best chance to thrive during the winter months you need to choose products combining effective ingredients.
Your best skin allies in winter are ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, which delivers deep hydration and plumps the skin, and Vitamin E, which helps to protect and repair the skin.
Great skin ingredients also include soy proteins, which increase collagen production, and extra virgin olive oil which is packed with anti radicals. Extra virgin olive oil is also fantastic at improving your skin’s elasticity. Another natural oil with effective properties for the skin is jojoba oil, which penetrates deep into the skin while softening and protecting it.
Other ingredients to look out for that have good protective and moisturising properties include red algae, which improves the skin’s elasticity and plumpness while creating a protective barrier against the elements to lock in moisture.
