‘Tis the season to update your skincare routine.
Cold winter weather has rolled in, and so has dull, flaky skin–but it doesn’t have to stick around. With the right tips and products, you can combat dryness with ease.
Wondering where to begin? We’ve got you covered. Here’s how to keep your skin radiant and healthy all season long.
1. Use a hydrating cleanser
Winterizing your skincare regime starts with the right cleanser. Opt for hydrating, non-irritating formulas for the face and body.
There are plenty of products on the market that contain nourishing ingredients to help protect and maintain your skin’s natural moisture barrier. Consider these recommendations.
2. Add a serum
An extra dose of hydration is key for wintertime. Serum is one way to give your skin the boost it needs. Lightweight and loaded with skin actives, serums penetrate deep into skin for maximum effectiveness.
Look for formulas containing hyaluronic acid, niacinamide and glycerin that plump and hydrate the skin like these *glowing* suggestions.
3. Layer on moisturizer
Now is the time to switch out your light, summer-friendly moisturizer for a thicker formula that’s ready to combat winter dryness.
Apply after your serum to give skin a gulp of moisture.
4. Consider 'slugging'
Yes, slugging. It’s the viral TikTok trend that even derms approve of.
This skincare technique involves applying a petrolatum-based ointment as the last step in your nighttime skincare routine to trap in moisture on affected areas.
Those with dry skin may slug daily depending on how their skin reacts to the process, but, if you’re acne-prone, this trend may not be for you.
