I love the transition from warm weather to cold, but my skin does not. Whether I’m residing in frigid Scotland or temperate California, my skin protests the changing seasons by erupting in acne (often caused by dehydration) and exacerbated by indoor heating and dryness. As as I could keep in mind long, every winter that I am aware of my own skim, I’ve gone into a moisturizer-buying frenzy when the temps dip. Friday and holiday sales/new produces only encourage that bad habit Black.
I’m never more gripped by unsubstantiated and overblown marketing messaging than I am when my face is flaking off. I’ve observed a lot of my fans and mutuals on Instagram falling over themselves to bolster their routines with winter’s arrival, plus they do so by splurging on new supposedly heavier-duty creams often, high-tech treatments, and plsuh-sounding masks.
But I’ve found, generally, that isn’t the most economical or effective way to save your face. Shit, get two humidifiers. Put one on your table at the job, and put one on your nightstand for when you sleep. 60 humidifier will last multiple winters and pay for itself. During summer it’s likely you have the blissful luxury of drifting off to sleep with a whisper of gel-cream, or a light layer of hydrating toner on that person, but in the winter you will need a durable arsenal.
I use my ointments as sleeping mask, spot “treatments” for dry spots even under makeup, and most significantly, I take advantage of them to bolster the power of my existing every day face lotions. Seriously, if you are not already a facial oil convert, you’re missing out. There’s some argument as to whether facial natural oils work better when applied BEFORE lotions or after. Especially during winter, I say porque no los dos, evening cream and allow it all soak in while I slumber and I oil-sandwich my.
28 for a pound of pomegranate seed oil. Trust me when I say the investment in natural oils is worth it, and minimal when compared to purchasing ready made products. I want. It’s cheaper than store-bought oils, so you can be really good and regular with program. The thing I really like most about pure oils is how versatile these are in my routine.
With this I’m specifically side-eyeing your (I’m sure) highly affordable stack of acids, exfoliators, masks, and treatments. Through the winter, your skin will tolerate less. That’s just the truth. Give your skin a break. Hi Hungry, I’m Dad! Not only will it save money, it will save your valuable poor dehydrated pores and skin also.

I run hot, I’ll acknowledge, but I pack up in warm pajamas and wool socks when I’m bumming around the house in wintertime. I never turn heat on unless I’ve an overnight guest who runs cold, and because of where I live, that works for me. Of course this isn’t a cold turkey directive- if your home is somewhere with a more punishing climate, you might need to run the heat. But think about reducing your usage whenever you can.
Bundle up more, put a supplementary quilt on the bed, even use a heating system blanket or pad in place of working the forced-air heater. Your skin will thank you. And keep an extra tube of your favorite cheap face cream as a tactile hand cream. I’ll admit I tend to wash my hands less in the winter even though I touch my face more.
Either from feeling cold, or being annoyed at extra dryness or breakouts, my hands definitely wander to my chin and cheeks more than they should. And clean hands will mitigate the damage to some degree. Furthermore, washing hands a crapton is the ultimate way to avoid catching cold. Personally, I get unwell each and every time there’s “something on offer,” but the winter that my mom did chemo, I used to be so terrified of infecting her with a insect that I washed my hands up to 10 times a day.
And I didn’t get ill that whole season. I avoid cleaning my hands in winter for a couple reasons- you are that the sensation of cool water is obviously bothersome. Solution: run the hot water when you can. Do it Just. The other reason it is avoided by me is basically because my already-dry hands feel drier the more I clean.
