Choose the right moisturizer.
Keep in mind that the moisturizer that you use during the summer season may not perform the same during the colder season. This is because your skin has varying needs during the different seasons. For winter, it is recommended that you use a greaseless moisturizer that contains lipids and ceramides. Additionally, you should also make sure that the moisturizer you will use contains hyaluronic acid, which binds moisture to the skin.
Apply moisturizer properly.
The key to staying hydrated relies on how you apply your moisturizer. The secret is actually to apply moisturizer when your skin is still slightly damp. When you do this, your skin will absorb the moisturizer a lot better and faster.
Bring a facial spray with you.
It isn’t easy to maintain fresh and hydrated skin all throughout the day. With that in mind, a nourishing facial spray would be your best friend during the cold season as it can help to provide the hydration and nourishment that your skin needs for the entire day. Additionally, it helps to set your makeup too.
Properly prep your face.
Before you put makeup on dry skin, it is recommended that you apply primer first. When your skin is dry, it may have skin indentations, which will be magnified when you apply makeup right away. With the use of the primer, you can be able to even out these indentations, and your skin will already be smooth and even by the time you apply your makeup.
Have your hormones checked?
If your skin is dehydrated and scaly, it might not just be about the weather—maybe it is a sign of a thyroid condition. If you feel other symptoms in addition to dry skin, don’t just simply rely on what the internet has to say—- visit a doctor.
Winter may be a fun time for soups, chili dishes, and hot chocolate, but it will never be a fun time for your hair and skin. Try out all the tips we have above and stay hydrated.
