Winter Skincare Tips

As winter approaches, it’s time to take a look at your skincare routine. Winter weather means cooler temperatures and less humidity. Your skin will be subject to harsher conditions and it’s more likely to dry out. The right winter skincare routine can do wonders for your skin.

Always Moisturize 

The key to helping your skin through the winter is moisturizing constantly. The winter air will dry out your skin. This can lead to your skin cracking, peeling, and even bleeding. These skin injuries can impair the protective lipid barrier in your skin. When you moisturize with medical-grade products like those found at Femme Moderne, you help maintain the protective barrier of your skin. Not only does this keep it from drying out, but it also protects your skin from irritants. You should moisturize your skin a couple of times a day if you can. Moisturizing right before you go to bed is a great option because it allows the moisturizer to soak into your skin overnight. 

Use a Humidifier 

Depending on where you live, the air can be drier in the wintertime. Additionally, the heat from your furnace can further dry out the air in your home. Thus, it can be helpful to put more moisture into the air. Humidifiers do exactly this and are great for rehydrating dry skin. However, keep in mind that they work best in smaller areas such as a bedroom or bathroom. Using a humidifier can expose your skin to more moisture so it’s less affected by the harsh, dry winter air. You can run your humidifier at night while you sleep or you can keep it running during the day to give you some extra moisture. 

Adjust Your Routine

When it comes to your skincare routine, you may need to make a few changes. Because of the dryness, your skin is more sensitive in the winter. You should take a look at your skincare products and see if some should be switched out for the season. You want to use gentle products that won’t irritate your skin further. It can be helpful to test out products on a small patch of skin to see if they cause irritation. Be sure to take a look at your make-up too. During the winter, you will want to switch out any of your cosmetic products that could contribute to drier, more irritated skin, like products with alcohol or synthetic fragrances. 

Your skin is your body’s largest organ and it needs all the care it can get. In the winter, it is especially delicate and you need to give it some extra attention. Make some changes to your routine so you can keep your skin moist and healthy.
