Hooray! Colder temperatures are now fast approaching. Pretty sure everyone looks forward to experiencing this season. The season alone evokes so many good memories that most of us are fond of doing. – the holiday season, a unique fun way to spend errands outside – snow angels and snowmen? Who would ever say no to doing fun memories while hair is filled with some snowflakes? Sweater weather it is! The drop of humidity may cause your skin to get dry. As seasons change, it is not only your set of wardrobes that has to be changed – so is your skincare routine.
Do not get all worked up, dry skin is especially common during the winter season as when the humidity level outside drops when the wind is cold and dry, the water in our skin tends to evaporate more quickly thus making your skin feel a bit dry, dull, and flaky. In fact, skin tends to lose more than 25% of its ability to hold water during this season. Truly winter season could bring a big change to your skin – from hydrated to dry and dull. To combat these changes, a tweak in your day and night time skincare routine is advisable. The minor tweaks that you will be doing could do so much to your skin’s health. May it be skincare for men or skincare for women, no one is exempted from doing this change in their respective skincare routine.
Check on these 6 beauty tips and practices that you all should be doing in transitioning your skincare routine as the winter season approaches.
A gentle cleanser would be of big help
Consistent cleansing is of big help during this dry skin season but kindly take note to use only those gentle cleansers as no one would want to strip off skin’s natural oils with harsh cleansers. In fact, cleansing day and night is a routine that has to retain all throughout. Cleansing is vital as it helps get rid of that debris on the skin’s upper layer making the proceeding skincare steps more efficient. During this season, experts recommend transitioning your cleansers to a balm, oil, or cream cleanser. While foam cleansers are great at removing dirt they sometimes contain sulfate that can be more drying. On the other hand, cleansing creams, balms, and oils can do the job for you in this dry season as they can effectively wash the skin while keeping it hydrated without disrupting your skin’s barrier function.

From a detailed explanation made by Dr. Brendan Camp, double board-certified dermatologist and dermatopathologist at Medical Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery in New York City. Ceramides along with cholesterol and fatty acids make up the lipids in the top layer of the skin called the stratum corneum. These functions include preventing excessive water loss through the epidermis and avoiding compounds from the environment permeate into the layers of the skin and thereby providing an immune response.
