Skin Savers for Winter Skin
Skin tends to need more hydration in the winter months. The air is cooler and dryer, additionally indoor heating is extremely drying to the skin. In the summer months, the air is more humid, and people tend to sweat more, so thicker moisturizers can feel much heavier on the skin, not to mention being sweated off. It’s a good idea to keep a humidifier going in the bedroom at night to keep skin hydrated. It is also good for sinuses to keep them clear.
Different skin types will need different kinds of moisturizers. Younger skin tends to be oiler, as well as ethnic skin types. More mature skin tends to be dryer and thinner, requiring a heavier moisturizer to hydrate and protect the dermal barrier. Men tend to prefer moisturizers that aren’t heavy, and that absorbs quickly into the skin. The same goes for teens. In such instances, they may prefer an oil-free moisturizer or a much lighter serum-based moisturizer. More mature and drier skin types will usually prefer a cream.
The new buzz ingredient in moisturizers is hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in the body. It attracts water molecules and thus helps keep skin hydrated. It is oil-free and is used in both oil-free and cream-based moisturizers. Many moisturizers also include vitamins C and E, which are natural antioxidants and help protect the skin.
Many cream-based moisturizers contain ingredients like shea butter, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, and other natural plant oils. In all instances, one needs to be cognizant of fragrance in skincare products. Even natural ones, such as essential oils, can be irritating to the skin. If one is having a reaction to a product, that is the first thing to look for as fragrance is the number one irritant to the skin.
