You update your wardrobe for winter, but did you know that you should also be updating your skincare routine? A change of season means a change in the way that your skin behaves, and winter is no different. During the winter, colder temperatures mean lower humidity levels and dry indoor heating. The result? Dry, dull skin that’s susceptible to irritation and acne. To keep your skin glowing and clear during the change from fall to winter, follow these skincare tips.
- Switch Up Your Cleanser
The issue: Foaming cleansers are great for deep cleaning skin during the summer. However, this type of cleanser can be too harsh during the winter when skin tends to produce less oil, leaving your skin feeling tight and overly dry.
The fix: Switch to using a gel-based cleanser in the morning and an oil-based cleanser at night. The gel-based cleanser will moisturize skin without excess oil to create the perfect blank canvas for makeup, while an oil-based cleanser will remove makeup and everyday dirt without stripping skin of its natural protective layer.
- Add Moisture
The issue: Lower humidity levels, cold temperatures and gusty winds leave your skin parched, itchy, and irritated.
The fix: Those with dry skin will want to try a hydrating cream, while those with more oily skin should invest in a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer. Skin still feeling dry? Apply BioBelle’s #StayGorgeous Mask whenever your skin needs a little extra hydration.
- Restore Radiant Skin
The issue: Cold, dry weather has left your skin tone dull and your complexion lifeless.
The fix: Treat a dull, tired skin tone with a restorative sheet mask. BioBelle’s #IWokeUpLikeThis Mask exfoliates dead skin and brightens the complexion for a rosy, youthful look in just 15 minutes. For best results, use three times per week until desired results have been achieved.
