The fall/winter seasons can leave your skin feeling dry and itchy. As the humidity decreases, the cooler air causes the water in your skin to evaporate and dry out your skin. It may be necessary to change and/or add more steps to your current skincare routine.
How to Apply Your Skin Products:
Your skincare routine should cater to your skincare needs and become a part of your daily routine that takes place in the morning and at night. When applying your skincare products there are several things you should think about:
Layering the product – when layering your skincare product take in consideration the consistency of the product. You want to apply the thinnest to the thickest product. The thinner products are usually water-based products, and the thicker products are oil-based products.
6. Lip Balm
1. Double Cleanser (thin oil-based cleanser)
5. Lip Mask
It is important to maintain a morning and evening routine for the best skin results. Also keep in mind that you should exfoliate as needed and add a face mask into your nightly skincare routine at least once a week!
Other Factors That Cause Your Skin to Dry Out:
Dehydration – water is essential and staying hydrated is a key factor to maintaining healthy glowing skin.
Indoor heating – just like the cool dry winter air, indoor heating can cause your skin to become dry and flaky. Not only does it dry out your skin but your mucous membranes as well which results in chapped lips, dry noses, and dry throat. Add moisture in the air by using a humidifier.
Long hot showers and baths – Hot water can strip your skin of its natural oils. This can be problematic in the cooler months when the production of oil slows down. Take the temperature down a notch when showering and be sure to moisturize your skin while it’s damp.
Wearing the wrong clothing – Clothing that contains wool can dry out and irritate the skin, especially those who suffer from skin conditions such as eczema or has sensitive skin.
