Skin care routine should go along with the current season. Despite our wishes and prayers to have summertime weather forever, unfortunately, Fall and Winter have made their way again and along will also bring some cold and wet weather, freezing temperatures and shorter daylight.
Just like we switch our wardrobe and type of foods we eat, the same thing should be also done with our skin care routine. It should definitely be changed and adjusted so it stays healthy despite the dropping temperatures and wind… It is normal for skin to lose precious moisture and also, its elasticity and the truth is, nobody wants that! But, what are some of the most important tips we should all be focused on in order to continue maintaining a healthy and hydrated skin?
Update your skincare routine in the right way
And by “right way” we mean you should first keep in mind the changes that the weather will have. Then you know how to prevent the possible damages that this weather might bring to the skin. Autumn and winter are a time of transition, and the best skin care routine is the one which is mostly focused on moisturizing and nourishing the skin. And you know why? Because winter and autumn winds significantly lower the level of skin’s lipids. They are the skin’s barrier, the protector of our skin!
Did you know that Korean women believe that the weather in one of the main, most important factors for skin health? Just like them, we should also prepare ourselves and our skin for the winter times in a proper and multi-functional way.
“A lot of the time people think, ‘I’m going to use this one product all the time,’” Andrew Goetz says, cofounder of beauty brand (MALIN + GOETZ). “But not only does the weather change, seasons change and hormones change. You have to pick out the right products for the right time.”
Why is moisturizer so important?
Everyone knows that for a proper skin care routine, oily face products are recommended to be used on summer and hot days. Creamy ones on the colder, windy days. A deep, good moisturizer is essential during Fall and Winter. This is because of the transitioning weather which tends to suck all the hydration out of our skin by leaving it with a dry, flaky surface. Due to climate changes, wrinkles and fine lines appear more intensely.
Moisturizer is a must…
If you love your moisturizer, you do not have to change its brand. What do experts strongly recommend, is to switch to a deeper, more effective and strong product to moisturize our skin. Especially during the nighttime when dry patches are being created. When adapting our skin care routine, we should also dedicate a special care regimen to our “under eye” area. The skin under our eyes is very delicate and it tends to show the damages more quickly. The queens of skin care routine, Korean women, might have just shown us the perfect skin hack we can practice. They know that if a woman has a sensitive skin which is easily affected by the weather changes, the best thing to do is to predict! Korean beauties do commonly study the weather changes, especially during Fall and Winter times. They do this to properly plan their skin care routine when the colder and windy days arrive…. (During windy days, experts from around the world, strongly recommend to put a little bit more amount of our daily moisturizer).
Don’t forget to nourish…
A richer skin care routine with proper moisturizer is vital for our winter skin , but, unfortunately, it is not enough. If our main goal is to have a healthy and glowy skin, we should also consider another thing. The skin needs some extra rich elements that will give a final touch and deeply nourish it. They will make it appear more vital and active with a perfect complexion. The best thing to do is to invest in a non-drying creamy mask. Preferably rich in vital oils and vitamins which smooth and deeply hydrate the skin. They do also nourish and repair it by preventing possible skin damages such are wrinkles, lines, acne etc.
K-beauty experts, for an optimal skin care routine, has given their own recommendation. They know that these rich and powerful masks when used at least twice a week, the skin will be supplied with the most necessary elements.
During the cold days, we should also consider another face care product: serums. They are more specialized products which can pretty much guarantee our skins recovery. They do always contain ingredients such is hyaluronic acid. This acid deeply hydrates our skin by instantly making it feel and be smoother and healthier.
