How to Winterize Your Skin Care Regimen With SkinCeuticals

How to Winterize Your Skin Care Regimen With SkinCeuticals

The SkinCeuticals experts are back to help you transition smoothly into the winter months with a selection of skin care products formulated to outlast the cold temps and dry weather.

For a good bit of us, it’s goodbye beautiful, hot summer days filled with sunshine and hello cooler temperatures complete with blustering winds and snow. While we bundle up, we forget that cooler temperatures can wreak havoc on our skin if we’re not prepared. We may experience dryness, sensitivity, tightness, irritation and even inflamed cheeks. This can lead to more noticeable fine lines, wrinkles, dullness and uneven skin tone. Once the clocks are rolled back, that usually signals the need to change up your skin care routine, if even ever so slightly.

Tips for Winter Skin Care Success

Don’t Increase Your Retinol Strength in the Winter

Exfoliation is almost always a great idea. However, in the winter months, it may not be the best time to increase your retinol strength or push to use it nightly if you’re currently using it every other night.

Do Increase Your Hydration in the Winter

One of the best things you can do for your skin this time of year is increase your hydration. Remember, even oily skin needs hydration. Dehydrated oily skin may lead to increased oil production to combat the lack of hydration, leading to even oilier skin and clogged pores. Increased water intake is always a great idea and it does fantastic things for the skin, but it’s often not enough. Incorporating a hyaluronic acid serum like the SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel can help do the trick. Hydrating and moisturizing skin helps it appear plumper, more radiant and more youthful overall.

Which SkinCeuticals Products Should You Use in the Winter?

Choosing the right product is key to helping your skin thrive throughout the winter. Let’s break down five amazing options.

SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2
