Should you take care of your skin using the same products and the same routines year round? You should not radically change your skin care routine or products if you found that they are working for you. However you should tweak them a little as the seasons change. During the winter months, the cold, dry air has a tendency to dry out your skin more than during other times of the year so here are some tips on how to keep your skin looking gorgeous and youthful.
Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise!
As the weather gets colder and the air gets drier, which tends to happen during winter, you may find that the same moisturiser that did the job during the summer months may no longer be enough. You may want to upgrade to a richer, stronger moisturiser during this time.
Not Too Hot Now
There is nothing wrong with taking a long luxurious bath, in fact during the Winter months there is nothing better, but remember that water thatís too hot can break down the lipid barriers in the skin cells which can strip the skin of its natural moisture.
Use a Humidifier
One or more, well-placed humidifiers throughout the house can add more moisture to the already dry air and help prevent the drying that naturally comes from the low humidity of the winter, combined with the drying effects of house heaters.
