It can feel like a challenge to keep your skin happy and hydrated as the temperature drops. That is because seasonal stressors like cold air, central heating, and hot showers will take their toll. Fortunately, winter-proofing your complexion is easy with the help of these skin care products.
1. Gentle Cleansers
Foaming face washes and gel-based cleansers are summertime favorites. They help control oil production and leave your skin feeling squeaky clean. In the winter, these formulas may be too intense. Your skin is producing less oil right now, so you might need a product to tackle dryness.
That is where gentle cleansers shine. We suggest trying something like the highly-rated Facial Cleanser from SkinMedica, the Nu-Derm® Gentle Cleanser from Obagi, or the new Ultra Calm Cleansing Cream from Alastin Skincare. These picks protect your skin’s moisture balance.
2. Hydrating Moisturizers and Serums
Your skin has to work overtime to stay hydrated in the winter. If it has trouble keeping up, you might be left with stubborn problems like irritation, flakes and cracks, and inflammation. Products that are designed to restore and retain your skin’s moisture can help you hit reset.
The HA⁵® Rejuvenating Hydrator from SkinMedica is a great option. It provides immediate hydration and offers long-term benefits for the look and feel of your skin. The Replenish Hydrating Cream from SkinMedica, Obagi Hydrate® Facial Moisturizers, and Alastin Skincare’s Ultra Nourishing Moisturizer are also wonderful products to consider adding to your routine.
3. Targeted Lip Treatments
If you are not locked in a losing battle to keep your lips from cracking, is it even winter? Fortunately, you can get ahead of dry and chapped lips this season with the right products.
Reach for the HA⁵® Smooth and Plump Lip System from SkinMedica. This two-step treatment is clinically shown to visibly plump lips and provide serious smoothing and hydrating benefits.
