Winter Skincare Tips February 2023 at Oleander Aesthetics

winter skincare tips

Hello Lovelies!

I hope everyone's had a nice start to 2023. We've had some dramatic ups and downs in weather since December. How's your skin taking it? The skin undergoes many changes throughout the year, and many factors influence them. One BIG factor are the temperature changes.
In winter the cold, dry air can significantly impact the state of your skin. The biggest effect is that skin dries out, which in turn leads to flakiness, tightness, and more pronounced wrinkles and fine lines. Skin also generally looks more tired and dull. We should double down on skin-protecting measures this time of year.
Have you been doing enough?
Here are some tips to remind you to take better care of your skin during the cooler months:

Shorten Your Hot Shower Sessions
Try to shorten your hot shower sessions. Hot water can strip your skin of its natural oils, responsible for keeping your skin healthy and preventing it from drying out during the colder months.

Use a Humidifier
If you find the indoor air particularly dry, you may need a humidifier to help your skin out. Dry air can cause your skin to tighten and aggravate existing skin conditions.  A humidifier can help balance the air in your home so that your skin can absorb some of that moisture, keeping it from being uncomfortably tight.

Apply Moisturizers Diligently
Because the skin tends to dry out more quickly in winter, it’s essential to apply moisturizers diligently.
One needs to focus on hydration and moisture. It’s important to note there’s a difference between the two. In general, hydration is water, and moisture is oil, such as the natural lipids, ceramides, and fatty acids that make up your moisture barrier. You need both in order to enjoy smooth, supple, bouncy, and healthy-looking skin.  Here are 3 favorites: 
The IMAGE Skincare AGELESS total pure hyaluronic 6 filler, which contains a customized HA complex featuring six forms of low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid to help lock in hydration and plump skin's appearance.
A second favorite are ceramides. Try the IMAGE Skincare  VITAL C hydrating repair crème, which features both hyaluronic acid and ceramides, which helps to lock in moisture and soothe sensitivity.
Last but not least is the VITAL C Hydrating Face Oil. A radiance-reviving oil that blends argan oil, sea buckthorn oil, and grapeseed oil to help moisturize skin, VITAL C Hydrating Face Oil is great for dry and dehydrated skin.

See you soon,
