Suffering from a lackluster complexion? As a skin specialist in Vancouver, Dr. Kamani works with clients looking to improve texture, tone, and hydration through personalized skin care products and services.
Wintertime is often a challenge in terms of skincare. Not only does the weather damage the surface of your skin, but indoors the heat can zap essential moisture. All this can lead to damage—fine lines, wrinkles, rough, uneven skin texture, clogged pores, and redness can all be symptomatic of the cold weather. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be this way. Along with using the right products, a few simple changes to your everyday routine can work wonders for your complexion.
5 Tips for Weathering the Cold
1) Invest in a humidifier
Consider a humidifier to moisten the air inside the home. This can help replenish your skin. Use it in the rooms you spend the most time, including your bedroom at night.
2) Lower the heat
When it’s chilly, curling up next to a cozy fire feels like bliss. But central air can make a dry home even drier. For optimal skin health, try a cool yet comfortable setting. About 20 degrees Celsius is what’s recommended by doctors. Try Simply Clean by SkinCeuticals along with their Equalizing Toner.
3) Cleanse gently
Steer clear of soaps/cleansers with ingredients and fragrances that can irritate dry, sensitive skin. Use a gentle cleanser on the face along with a scrub-free exfoliant 1-2 times a week.
4) Reduce shower time and temperature
We get it. A long steamy shower feels great on a cold day, but moderation is key to keeping skin happy. Limit time to about 5-10 minutes in a lukewarm shower or bath. When toweling off, blot till the skin is damp rather than perfectly dry.
5) Modify skincare to match the season
To combat winter dryness, switch to a cream-based moisturizer before bed. Try B5 Hydrating Masque when you’re out at the ski hill. For the lips, apply a dab moisturizing Antioxidant Lip Repair to prevent dryness and cracking before swiping on your lipstick.
