Since the weather is inevitably getting colder, your skin is most likely going to change with the seasons. Although some people don’t have this problem, there are a few that have something ?called “seasonal skin”. Seasonal skin is when your skin changes depending on the weather. For example, in winter your skin (in areas or all over the face, depends on the individual) could become dry. Having the need to moisturize all the more urgent. In the summer time, skin tends to produce more *sebum and sweat. So the need to moisturize often terrifies people, for fear of creating more backup in the pores. Before I start, I just want to say that these could help you, but it’s mostly trial and error with your own skin. I suggest figuring out what your skin type is before you listen in on any of these tips. Also, I am not an esthetician, so my tips are based on research and personal experience. Using this guide is not a bible of skincare, it’s just a few things I’ve put together. Here are some tips and products on how to control oily, dry, and acne prone skin types in this coming winter season. Dry skin: Step 1: Cleanse Similar to the oily cleansing routine, using two cleansers are best to remove all traces of makeup and dirt. Plus, since you have dry skin, the added oil can help smooth and hydrate your skin. Using a foaming cleanser for all skin types is the best. If you don’t have any foaming cleanser and don’t want to go out and buy a whole new bottle, just squirt the cleanser in your hand with water, and rub and rub until bubbles form. It’s best to form the bubbles on your hand than directly on your face. The bubbles don’t pick up the dirt when made on your face, because there is that thin layer of lather still on there, keeping it from grabbing the dirt. Step 2: Exfoliate Exfoliating is different from using a scrub. The exfoliator removes the dead skin that dry skin can accumulate over the day. I suggest doing this every two days, but it honestly depends on how dry your skin is. You might need to do it more frequently or farther apart. People of all skin types can exfoliate, but it’s really important for people with dry skin to. It can unclog pores that are backed up with dead skin, which does cause a lot of zit problems. Step 3: Tone Like mentioned with the oily skin, toner helps balance the pH levels in your face, which can help balance out the problems with your skin. Toners can have a tightening feeling to them, which scares some people to not use them, but toners are actually really beneficial to dry skin. #Using the right kind, it can help restore the moisture in your face. Look for hydrating, rose water induced, and aloe vera included toners. Step 4: Masks!! (optional) You don’t need to put a face mask on, but using one could help your skin condition. Especially calming, hydrating, and snail goo injected face masks help with dry skin. Step 5: Moisturize Moisturizing is a no brainer when it comes to dry skin. But tip, is to massage your skin with oil, before you put a cream on. Using a lite oil, while moisturizing it in the skin can help blood circulation and soften the skin. Each skin is different so the amount is different. You’ll just have play around with it. But, the type of moisturizer definitely is your choice. You could use a thicker, more cream than a water based cream, but it all depends on how much moisturizer you think you need. Since there is oil added into this routine, it all depends on what you think. If you want to check out oily and acne prone skincare tips, go to our website!
