Our Dermal Clinicians Tips:
Hydrate from Within: Ensure you stay properly hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Adequate hydration helps to keep our body healthy and hydrate your skin from the inside out.
Gentle Cleansing: Opt for mild, creamy cleansers that won't strip away your skin's natural oils. Avoid hot water, as it can further dehydrate your skin. Stick to lukewarm water for cleansing.
Try our favourite gentle cleansers: Universkin Oil Cleanser, iS Clinical Cream Cleanser
Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise: Invest in a rich, nourishing moisturizer that provides deep hydration. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and shea butter. Apply moisturizer to damp skin after bathing to lock in moisture.
- Try iS Clinical Moisturising Complex for long lasting moisture with a light dewy finished
- Try Dermaceutic HyalCeutic for those who like a matte finish
- Try Universkin P Riche or P Light for sensitive skins
- Add a Hyaluronic Acid to your routine like iS Clinical Hydra-Cool Serum or Universkin H Serum
Humidify Your Environment: Use a humidifier in your home to add moisture to the air. This helps to combat the dryness caused by indoor heating systems, which can contribute to dry skin.
Protect with Layers: When going outdoors, bundle up with warm clothing and accessories to shield your skin from the cold winds. Don't forget to wear gloves, scarves, and hats to protect your hands, neck, and ears.
Sunscreen is Essential: Even during winter, UV rays can still damage your skin. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to exposed areas, especially if you're engaging in winter activities or spending extended periods outdoors.
Limit Hot Showers and Baths: Hot water can strip your skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness. Opt for shorter, lukewarm showers or baths to prevent excessive drying.
Exfoliate Gently: Regular exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells and allows moisturizers to penetrate better. However, choose gentle exfoliants and limit exfoliation to once or twice a week to avoid over-drying your skin.
Stay Hydrated Lips: Use a lip balm or hydrating lip mask to prevent chapped lips. Look for products with ingredients like beeswax, shea butter, or coconut oil to provide intense moisture.
Healthy Lifestyle Habits: Maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating a balanced diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants. These nutrients support overall skin health and can help prevent dryness.
Remember, consistency is key in maintaining hydrated skin during winter. Stick to a regular skincare routine and make adjustments as needed based on your skin's individual needs.
