How to keep your Skin Hydrated During Dry Skin Season

Winter weather can vary greatly from place to place, but it often comes with dry air which often causes rough, cracking skin that can be hard to handle. Read this blog for tips and products to help you fight the dryness of winter and hydrate your skin this season.

Protect Yourself

 

When you live in a colder climate, make sure that you are keeping your skin covered with scarves, gloves and caps, to shield your body from the bitter cold. Cold can zap any moisture out of your skin which can cause redness and chapped skin.

 

Exfoliation is Key

 

Piling on moisturizers won't solve your dry skin problems completely. Be sure to exfoliate frequently enough to remove dry, flaky skin in order to keep the healthy skin moisturized underneath. Just keep in mind that some products such as body scrubs may be too harsh for your more delicate facial skin. We recommend our Proexist Hydrating Facial Toner ($28.00). Our toner is a natural follow-up to cleansing, offering enhanced exfoliation and helping to improve skin cell rejuvenation. 

Beware of the Temperature of the Water

While it may feel nice at the moment to steam with hot water, it may simply dry the skin further. Try to use warm water (not piping hot water), particularly when you wash your face. 

Choose Dry Skin Cleansers

Facial cleansers and body washes made specifically for dry skin can help to maintain hydration of your skin. If you have oily skin, furnace heat and cold weather can actually strip your skin of its natural oils. People forget that breakouts and other skin problems caused by weather changes can vary. In some cases, dry skin can cause an overproduction of sebum and oils. Given this, it is important to have a cleanser that can balance your skin’s pH levels while maintaining its proper moisture levels. Proexist Clarifying Facial Cleanser ($28.00) washes away impurities, oil, and makeup—without robbing your skin of its natural oils and moisture.

 

Immediately Apply Moisturizer

The real superhero in the fight against dryness is our Advanced Revitalizing Moisturizer ($35.00). We crafted this formula to be incredibly lightweight on your skin while delivering a powerful punch of antioxidants, essential oils, and organic extracts. Rosehip oil helps gently repair skin tissue and diminish the appearance of blemishes, while a boost of hyaluronic acid imbues dehydrated skin with anti-aging superpowers. Discover more radiant, more youthful skin with every use. To help keep in some of your skin’s moisture, use face and body lotion right after washing. Don't wait until your skin feels dry to use a moisturizer. 

Don’t Neglect Your Lips and Hands

This season take care of your lips and keep them hydrated. Exfoliate them regularly to brush off flaky skin and apply a moisturizing lip balm consistently. For hands, you're going to want to re-apply a moisturizer all day long, especially after your hands have been washed. Make sure to bring hand lotion and lip balm with you at all times!

 

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Dehydration makes the skin, hair and nails extra dry. In winter, hot drinks can be a go-to, but also make sure you drink enough water. And note that while cold liquids are absorbed quicker, warmer or room temperature drinks are better at keeping your internal temperature optimal.

 

Use these tips to stay ahead of the winter dryness and keep your skin soft and moisturized this season. And think Spring! It will be here before you know it.
