6 Ways to Prevent Dry Skin This Winter + Recommended Treatments

6 Ways to Prevent Dry Skin This Winter + Recommended Treatments

1. Moisturise 

Any time you wash your face, hands, or body, you strip your skin of its natural oils. Since these oils help to lock in moisture, it’s vital to replace them. That’s why it’s important to use a moisturizer any time you wash your skin, especially in winter.

2. Apply sunscreen daily
Given the shorter winter days and less sunlight, it can be tempting to cut sunscreen out of your morning routine — but think again. Even in winter, harmful UV light can still stress your skin’s moisture barrier, which is vital for maintaining skin health and hydration.
Try adding a layer of sunscreen each morning after you’ve applied a moisturizer.
3. Use Overnight Treatments
Overnight treatments are an excellent way to revitalise or prevent dry skin. Emollients are great for moisturizing. However, because they’re a heavier type of cream, it can take longer for them to be absorbed into your skin.
By applying an emollient to your skin overnight, your skin will have the time it needs to absorb the treatment and for the emollient to replenish your skin with the moisture and oils it need.

4. Adjust your skincare routine
If the skin on your face seems to be especially sensitive or irritated due to the dry winter air, you may want to consider simplifying your skin care routine for the time being. Try keeping your skin care routine simple. Consider using just a moisturiser and sunscreen in the morning, and a gentle cleanser with a moisturiser at night.

5. Dial down the temperature
A hot shower or bath at the end of a cold winter’s day can feel especially soothing. But, to keep your skin nourished, you may want to keep the water temperature closer to lukewarm. Also, take care when you dry your skin after bathing or showering. Instead of vigorously rubbing, gently pat your skin with a soft towel, which may allow some of the moisture to hydrate the top layer of your skin.

6. Hydrate from the inside 
Another key step to keeping your skin healthy and glowing is to make sure you’re staying well hydrated throughout the day. Not taking in enough fluid can affect the appearance of your skin and also make it more susceptible to drying out.
