Winter Skincare Tips

Winter Skincare Tips – Between the cold temperatures and dry, indoor heating, winter can really take a toll on your skin. Here’s how to make sure you maintain healthy and hydrated skin throughout the season:
- Go easy on the hot showers and baths. It may feel relaxing to take a long, hot shower or bath to warm up from winter weather, but this can actually dry out your skin even more. The higher temperatures can cause your skin to shed its natural oils. Follow the Goldilocks rule: “not too hot, not too cold.”
- Switch up your cleanser. The cleanser you used in summer may be too harsh during the drier months. Your skin shouldn’t feel tight or squeaky clean after you cleanse. That’s a sign that your skin is dehydrated. Help your skin maintain a natural moisture barrier by using a mild cleanser like Cetaphil or Epionce Gentle Foaming Cleanser.
- Use a humidifier. Hydrate while you sleep! A cool-mist humidifier helps replace moisture lost due to indoor heating and frequently closed doors. A humidifier near your bed is an easy way to aid skin hydration while you sleep.
As always, you can schedule a consultation with our Master Aesthetician Holly to learn more about how to keep your skin happy and hydrated during the winter.
