Cold Weather Skin Care: Winter Forecast

Cold Weather Skin Care: Winter Forecast

The effects of cold winter weather on skin can wreak havoc on your protective hydrolipid barrier. Low temperatures and the change in humidity, and depending on where you live, this change can result in a number of different concerns including dry, dull and dehydrated skin. Take a look at your local forecast, and follow our expert esthetician tips for the cold weather skin care.

 

1) NORTHWEST

Winter forecast: An increase in humidity, a decrease in temperatures; cloudy skies.

Winter skin care routine: Try a 10% vitamin C serum like vc10 Daily Glow to brighten skin tone on a gray, gloomy day. Get out of the rain and into a spa every 4-6 weeks. Regular facials are key to clearer, healthier skin – and your skin care professional can adjust recommendations as your skin changes with the weather.


2) SOUTHWEST 

Winter forecast: An increase in humidity, a decrease in temperatures; sunny skies.

Winter skin care routine: Give you skin a surge of needed hydration with a corrective treatment mask like Hydroplunge, to tackle lower humidity. And be sure to fill up that Stanley Quencher Cup! Studies show that drinking water can help improve your skin and overall health.

 

3) MIDWEST 

Winter forecast: Snow, wind, low humidity and cloudy skies.

Winter skin care routine: We know you’re tough. Five feet of snow? No big deal. Ten degrees? Child’s play. But those harsh winds can sure do some damage. Try a lightweight argan and squalane face oil like Dewluxe to lock in moisture, replenish protective barrier lipids and deliver the most natural dew you’ve ever seen. And don’t forget to wrap a scarf around your neck and face.

 

4) SOUTH

Winter forecast: A slight increase in humidity, drop in temperatures

Winter skin care routine: Serums that boost your skin’s hydration can help battle colder temps. Use Moisture x10 serum to give skin a super surge of hyaluronic acid. And did you know that the inside of your home can affect your skin just as much as the weather outside? Keep an eye on your home’s thermostat and don’t crank it up too high – central heating can rob moisture from the air (and your skin).

 

5) NORTHEAST 

Winter forecast: A drop in humidity, with snow and cold temperatures

Winter skin care routine: Switch to a more emollient moisturizer to banish dryness and keep skin protected – try Really Rich Moisture to tackle your tight, lined, uncomfortable skin. And we know Nor’easters can be scary, but even scarier is the thought of your dry skin becoming much drier when you cleanse with super-hot water. So keep the H20 lukewarm.

 

6) SOUTHEAST 

Winter forecast: Humidity can vary here, but the sun will shine and temperatures will fall

Winter skin care routine: OK, so the rest of the country is pretty jealous of you this time of year. But don’t let it go to your head. Stick to the basics with an antioxidant broad spectrum sunscreen. We recommend SPF 50 Facesreen - and keep your skin further protected from those sunny rays with a chic pair of sunglasses and a wide brimmed hat.
