It’s no secret that the hardest time of year for our skin is winter and although we’re not there yet, temperatures have seriously dropped and are already descending into minus! YIKES!!!!
Our skin is now under attack and if your skin has to go through any of the following, you might want to start thinking about how you’re going to protect it:
- Hot Showers (I mean who takes a luke warm shower? I DON’T THINK SO!!)
Being exposed to artificial Heaters
Cold winds and temperatures (If you live in Ireland, the only way to avoid this is by wearing a ski mask from October to April.)
In order to protect our skin during the cold weather we must firstly know what skin type we have and what products best for fill it’s needs.
Think about it, what’s the point in investing in skincare products if they’re not the right ones for our skin?
It goes without saying that the best way to do is by booking a consultation with a skincare specialist, you can do this for free at Havana Skin Clinic
But here’s some tips on fighting winter skin. These points are focused on targeting dehydrated and dry skin as this is the most common effect the drop of temperatures has on our skin.
- Do not use a harsh cleanser – If your skin feels uncomfortably tight after cleansing, this probably means that firstly you’re using the wrong cleanser and secondly you’ve stripped it of some of its natural oils in the process.
- Ensure you maintain a Healthy Diet – It’s so simple but your diet plays a huge role in generating the largest organ in your body, your skin. Sometimes our skin can almost be a direct reflection of not only what we’re using on the surface but also what we’re consuming. If you’re malnourished on the inside, it will probably show on the outside.
- Know your skin – Meet with a skincare specialist before investing any money into your skincare to avoid wasting money.
