When winter comes, it means changes in the weather, changes in wardrobe, and skin care changes that are often neglected. Skin care often needs to change with the seasons. The usual summer products can end up drying your skin out due to less humidity in the air. Taking proper care of your skin in the winter months will help it stay hydrated and nourished, leaving you with long lasting benefits.
4 Skin Care Changes to Make This Winter
- Sun protection is still important in the winter. The sun isn’t as strong, but UV rays can still affect the skin. Wearing a light SPF all year can delay signs of aging, and promote healthier looking skin. It is recommended to wear at least SPF 15 all year long, upping the coverage in the summer. This also prevents visible sun spots, which have lasting effects on the skin. Be sure your SPF is safe for the face and eye area.
- Switch to a creamy face wash. Foaming face washes tend to dry out the skin, which is good for the summer months, but can leave your skin flakey and dry in the winter. Cream cleaners like Eminence’s Coconut Milk Cleanser will help your skin retain its moisture. This Coconut Milk Cleanser will have your skin looking more youthful, and feeling moisturized and clean. All of Eminence’s skin care is formulated without parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, animal by-products, or GMOs.
- Use heavier masques. The Eminence Stone Crop Masque locks in moisture, tones, and reduces redness in the skin. It is also a great masque to use if your skin becomes sensitive in the winter months. Heavier, creamier masques are very moisturizing and typically have results that last a few days. Using a masque is recommended three to five times per week.
- Exfoliate. Exfoliating with a sugar scrub removes dull, dry, and rough skin, which helps the moisturizer and masques work faster and better. Eminence’s Pear and Green Apple Sugar Scrub lightly exfoliates to enhance tone and smooth texture. The main ingredients, pear and green apple, work together to restore the skin’s essential vitamins and nutrients. Exfoliating helps keep your skin looking and feeling smooth all year, especially during the winter. Exfoliating is typically recommended two to three times per week.
