The cold and dry weather can be a huge pain specially if your skin is sensitive and reacts to the weather. This kind of weather can be an even bigger problem for people with dry skin that tends to dry out even more. So, if you’re going back to school in the fall or if you want to gear up for the semester after winter holidays, here are some skin care ideas for the dry testing weather:
Products for the cold weather
The general myth about the winter is that the greasier the product, the better it is for the skin. However, that could not be farther from the truth. Here are some ways you can hydrate your skin without making it greasy or leaving behind a weird shiny cast on your face;
- Creams with high staying power can make a huge difference and lock the moisture into your face. If it comes with SPF, that’s one more way of fighting the cruel winter sun.
- Just because it might be cloudy or hazy outside, doesn’t mean harmful rays from the sun won’t affect you. Make sure to use a moisturizing sunblock that has high SPF.
- If you have a long day ahead of you with zero time to reapply moisturizer, or you simply don’t want to mess up your makeup with reapplication, using a time release moisturizer can make a huge difference.
The key to avoiding dryness during the winter is to drink as much water as possible and avoid hot caffeinated beverages as much as possible, no matter how hard it may be. If your skin gets too stubborn, using deep-hydration sheet masks and getting a hydrating facial can also be a massive help.
