Take Care of Your Skin This Winter

Posted on January 31, 2024 by: Dr. Rocheford

As winter arrives in full force, you might start to notice that your skin feels drier than usual. This is because the air becomes drier and colder, which can wreak havoc on your skin, especially if your skin is already on the drier side. This is why you might want to make some changes to your skincare routine to ensure that you stay moisturized and glowing.

Hydration is Key

When you think of moisturizing your skin, you likely think of applying lotions, creams or topical treatments. While these can definitely help to ensure you stay glowing throughout the winter months, nothing beats good old fashioned hydration. Getting enough water throughout the day will help to keep you hydrated, which promotes glowing and moisturized skin from within.

Gentle Cleansing

While it’s important to keep your skin clean, harsh cleansers can strip away natural oils, which can exacerbate winter dryness. Opt for a gentle cleanser that will remove makeup, dirt and impurities without stripping your skin of the natural oils that it needs to stay hydrated.

Add a Body Serum

Serums aren’t just for the face anymore. A hydrating body serum, such as the Revision Skincare BodiFirm™ serum, can add an extra layer of moisture, especially when used under your regular lotion or cream. Apply a body serum after the shower, when your skin is still moist but not dripping wet.

Keep Showers Short

A long hot shower might feel good on a cold winter day, but it can be extremely drying on your skin. Try to keep your showers short and the water lukewarm to keep your skin healthy and hydrated throughout the winter months.

Lip Care

The lips need extra care during winter to prevent chapping, flaking and peeling. For the month of January, we’re offering the Youthful Lip Replenisher from Revision Skincare as a free gift with the purchase of any two skincare items. A $40 value, the Youthful Lip Replenisher doesn’t just restore moisture, but has a plumping effect, giving your lips that are both hydrated and full.

Invest in a Humidifier

While turning up the heat might make you feel extra cozy during the cold winter months, it can be extremely drying on your skin. Restore moisture back into the air by investing in a humidifier, which will help your skin to stay hydrated and repair itself while you sleep.

Don’t Skip on The SPF

Many people erroneously think that sun protection is something they only need during the spring and summer months. Just because the sky looks a tad darker during winter doesn’t mean that your skin isn’t vulnerable to sun’s damaging rays. To streamline your winter morning routine, try a tinted moisturizer with SPF protection, such as Intellishade from Revision Skincare.
