The winter months bring shorter days and cooler temperatures that can take a toll on your skin.
Dry skin is a common problem during this season. The humidity in winter is low in both indoor and outdoor environments, predisposing your skin to dry conditions and dehydration. Exposure to harsher elements, like wind and forced heat, can all weaken your skin barrier and leave your complexion lacking moisture.
Luckily, you can quench your skin’s thirst with a seasonal skincare pack. Read on to learn more about common winter skin dryness issues and the skin care bundles that can help them.
Common Skin Issues in Winter
1: Flaky Skin
Is often caused by environmental elements. In the winter, your skin may be exposed to wind, sun, and heat, all in the span of a few minutes. This can result in extreme dryness that turns into flaky skin. It’s important to incorporate an exfoliant for winter skin care. But not just any exfoliation product will do. If you have flaky skin, you should avoid harsh scrubs and opt for a gentle, multi-functional probiotic Exfoliating and Hydrating Mask that exfoliates and hydrates the skin simultaneously.
Winter skin dryness is common due to the lack of moisture in the air. Outside temperatures are cool and dry, and indoors your skin is being exposed to forced heat that further exasperates skin irritation. The best winter skincare protocol is introducing a deeply nourishing and hydrating cream. With active ingredients that include shea butter, microbiome, and jojoba oil, our Antioxidant Hydrating Cream is suitable for all skin. Research indicates that jojoba oil naturally comprises a similar constitution to human sebum and vitamin E, so the skin matrix can easily utilise it and provide quick results. Plus, it can help smooth fine lines and be used as part of an anti-aging regimen.
Itchiness is a common side effect of dry skin. Lengthy moisturising routines have often been the remedy for combating itchiness, but this isn’t always needed. Simply applying moisturiser daily is one simple and effective way to combat itchiness. You may also want to consider using a cooling cleansing oil as part of your winter skin care to provide more relief.
4. Irritation and Redness
If you notice your skin becomes more irritated and red during the winter, it might be in need of a boost. Our Collagen Boosting Serum is designed to support the skin’s immune function, even skin tone, improve hydration, and maintain fatty acid levels. Additionally, it’s still important to protect your skin from UV rays in the winter. Make sure you’re using mineral sunscreen when you go outdoors to avoid more redness.
5. Flare-Ups and Breakouts
Winter weather can weaken your skin barrier, leaving you more susceptible to breakouts and flare-ups during these months. An Antioxidant Cleanser is one of the best ways to regulate your skin's naturally occurring hydration and bacterial balance to gently prevent breakouts.
