Top Skincare Tips for Healthy Winter Skin
Updated: Feb 1, 2021
As the seasons change, so does your skin. In the winter, your skin loses more than 25 percent of its ability to hold moisture, meaning that it will naturally become drier and more sensitive. That's why relying on your usual skincare products and skincare routine will leave your skin feeling tight, red, and itchy during the winter.
These four simple tips will keep your skin feeling supple and soft through the cold and dry weather, and help you feel your best all winter long.
1. Hydrate from inside and out. Indoor heat drains the moisture from the air and leaves your skin feeling tight and dehydrated. Replenish the moisture in the air by using a humidifier in your home and office. As the weather cools down, so does our water intake. Keep your skin (and you) hydrated by drinking plenty of water and swapping your coffee for warming winter teas like ginger green tea - which has added anti-oxidant benefits!
2. Maintain your skin’s natural moisture barrier. There’s nothing more relaxing than a hot shower on a cold day. But according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) too many, too long, or too hot showers leave your skin dehydrated and irritated. Over washing with tons of soap or body wash will also strip away necessary oils that protect your skin. Rasaa body wipes are a great way to limit the number and length of your showers. Rasaa towels provide all natural and effective full body cleansing, without the post-shower dryness.
3. Modify your skincare. Many well known cleansers, toners, and even moisturizers actually contain harsh chemicals, like alcohol, which do more damage than good. The AAD recommends replacing products that contain alcohol with cleansers that help skin retain its natural protective oils. Rasaa towels are formulated with organic essential and carrier oils that nourish, hydrate, and protect your skin.
4. Moisturize effectively. Cold outdoor air causes the water in your skin to evaporate more quickly. Dry indoor air dries out your skin even more. Its important to find a moisturizer that counteracts the harsh winter air, but that also works with your unique skin. Natural oil based products, like Rasaa, keep crucial hydrating oils in your skin. Rasaa takes the guess work out of maintaining flawless winter skin - Immerse, Renew, and Balance are each formulated with a blend of moisturizing carrier and essential oils that cater to your specific skincare needs.
