We’re into the last stretch of winter and even if you live in a warmer climate, you can probably feel the effects that the winter weather has on your skin.
Here are a few of the reasons your skin is feeling extra dry and some expert tips to help fix it!
You’ve Got The Wrong Cleanser
We cannot stress this enough – your foaming cleanser is hurting your skin. Traditional cleansers mess with your skin’s pH levels and strip skin of natural oils it needs to stay healthy and hydrated. If you are using a foaming or cream cleanser, you are likely causing extra dryness to your skin. Thankfully the damage you are doing isn’t permanent and can be fixed with a skincare swap.
Trade your foam cleanser for an oil cleanser ASAP! Oil cleansers help protect your pH balance and they deliver some much-needed moisture to your dry and dehydrated skin. Oil cleansers dig deep into pores to wash away dirt and debris while also leaving skin soft to the touch. Just one was with an oil-based cleanser and you’ll be able to see and feel a difference in the hydration of your skin.
Your Showers Are Too Hot
It is so tempting to turn up the heat when in the shower or washing your face when the weather gets cold. It feels steamy and relaxing in the moment, but using water that is too hot in the shower can backfire and have serious consequences for your skin.
Experts all agree that using warm water instead of hot will help protect your skin from damage. When your shower is extremely hot, it will dry your skin out and cause flakes and accentuate wrinkles. As soon as you’re out of the shower, slather on some Repair & Release Cream while your pores are still open and it will allow peptides to penetrate deeper to help erase wrinkles.
You’re Only Moisturizing Sometimes
Are you guilty of only using your moisturizer once a day, or not even that often? Research shows most people choose to only apply their cream either at night or in the morning and often skip days. The truth is when winter skin strikes its super important to be using it at least twice a day.
Even when your skin doesn’t feel try, it’s working through its natural oils and can feel dry on the deeper layers of skin that you can’t see or feel. Keeping up with your moisturizer routine will be super important for repairing damage and helping to maintain youthful-looking skin. If you aren’t using your Repair & Release Cream at least twice a day, you could be setting your skin up for failure and have trouble seeing the results you’re looking for.
