The winter can be very harsh for our skin. The powerful winds combined with indoor solid heating can wreak havoc on your skin’s natural moisture. There is a robust solution going beyond the typical CVS remedy. Keep reading below to explore how medical-grade skincare products can be your ally in the battle against dry skin.
Understanding the Winter Skin Challenge
Cold weather can strip the skin of its natural oils, which leads to dehydration and tightness. Taking hot showers and sitting in the indoor heat can exacerbate moisture loss, only perpetuating the dryness. To combat this, it’s crucial to adopt a skincare routine tailored to the needs of your winter skin.
Medical-Grade Skincare Products
Gentle Cleansers: Look at the cleanser you use, and swap out harsh cleansers for mild, hydrating options. It would help if you kept an eye out for things like hyaluronic acid and glycerin, which both lock in moisture.
Rich Moisturizers: Richer moisturizers can help repair the skin barrier to protect it from the harsh winter elements. Invest in a medical-grade moisturizer with ceramides, fatty acids, and squalene ingredients.
Serums and Treatments: Hydrating serums that contain things like niacinamide or vitamin C are essential to incorporate into your winter skincare routine. These not only boost hydration but can also brighten and even out the skin tone.
Exfoliants: Lastly, including an excellent medical-grade exfoliant in your routine will help remove dead skin cells and allow better absorption of products. Opt for chemical exfoliants like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids (BHAs).
