Have you noticed that your skin feels a lot more dry during the winter season? There’s a reason for that.
As the temperature drops, the air becomes dry. And since there’s less moisture in the air, it provides much less moisture to your skin. This means the skin moisture evaporates much quicker, leaving you feeling dry. If you don’t do anything about this, it will eventually lead to irritation, flaky skin and hyper-sensitivity.
It doesn’t mean that your moisturizer or other beauty products are no longer effective.
It simply means that just like you need a thicker coat in the winter to keep the warmth in, the same goes for your skin. You need a thicker moisturizer that creates a barrier on your skin to keep the moisture from escaping so quickly.
The best thing for your skin during the winter is to switch to a gentle cleanser and a thicker moisturizer. Avoid using aggressive exfoliants and treatments that leave your skin weak and vulnerable.
If you only do one thing: invest in an effective thicker moisturizer that protects your skin from drying out.
